Cosmetic Dentistry – Coronado, CA
Make Your Smile Brighter Than Ever!
At Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Popp and Dr. Bailey put your oral health first and foremost. While your oral health is most important, that doesn’t mean you should have to settle for a smile filled with chips, cracks or permanent stains. Our dental office is equipped with many solutions to get your smile looking exactly the way you want it, whether it’s through teeth whitening treatment, direct bonding, porcelain veneers, or another treatment designed to improve your overall appearance. To get started planning your next smile makeover, give our dental office a call!
When your smile is largely discolored or you have multiple imperfections to resolve, porcelain veneers can completely transform it overnight. These ultra-thin sheaths of dental ceramic are designed to mimic tooth enamel almost exactly, ensuring that they look natural once bonded to your existing teeth. Thanks to their smooth surface, they are even more stain-resistant than natural teeth. They even reflect light in the same way as real tooth enamel, so no one will be able to distinguish them from your natural smile!
Mercury-Free & Metal-Free Dental Restorations
When you come to our dental office for cosmetic improvements, you’ll quickly notice that we put a large emphasis on providing materials that look good as well as offering long-lasting function. Whether you need a crown or veneer placed or chipped/cracked tooth repaired with direct bonding, we always make sure that esthetics are kept in mind. Our mercury-free & metal-free restorations are made from reliable materials and sourced from manufacturers that Advanced Dentistry has come to trust over the years.
Much like tooth-colored fillings, direct bonding is an effective way to restore damaged teeth without sacrificing your smile’s appearance in the process. Keep in mind that direct bonding is largely performed for more cosmetic purposes, such as filling cracks and chips inside your teeth. However, it does use the same material as tooth-colored fillings to do so. Composite resin is a reliable mixture made from both glass and plastic; no metal materials are utilized.
In-Practice Teeth Whitening
Teeth become stained for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s due to external causes like drinking coffee, dark colas and teas or as a result of aging, our in-office whitening process from Opalescence is sure to give your smile the pick-me-up it needs. Keep in mind that these bleaching ingredients are not something you can find over-the-counter. In just one hour, we can easily get your smile looking several shades brighter and ready for your next upcoming social event.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Do you want to experience the same strength of whitening you’d find in the dental office but be able to practice it on your own time? Our take-home whitening kits from Philips Zoom make it easy to whiten teeth while you sleep! Nitewhite uses 16% carbamide peroxide to remove tough stains from teeth. By wearing your bleach-filled trays for two to four hours a day over the next two weeks, you can achieve optimum results.
Gum Recontouring/Crown Lengthening
For many patients, it’s not necessarily their teeth that need improving. When too much gum tissue is covering teeth, making them appear smaller than they are, gum recontouring is a fast and effective solution to expose more of your natural smile. With the help of the Biolase dental laser, we can safely and precisely remove excess gum tissue in a minimally invasive manner. Because of the precision of this laser, healing time is also drastically reduced.
Digital Imaging/Virtual Smile Design
With so many cosmetic treatments to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. It can be even more difficult to envision what your future smile would look like. That’s where digital imaging technology can make a big difference. Virtual Smile Design allows us to simulate what your future smile will look like after a specific treatment, whether it’s porcelain veneers or dental implants. It’s sure to give you the confidence that your future smile will look exactly the way you want it to.
While it may sound strange at first to hear a dentist offering services like Botox, the fact is the dentists at Advanced Dentistry are trained to administer these highly effective cosmetic treatments to accomplish a variety of goals. As experts in facial esthetics, not solely the esthetics of the smile, we can remove current wrinkles and prevent the formation of future wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and eyebrows. With multiple brands and treatments to choose from, we’ll determine which solution is right for you.
Sometimes getting a single treatment just isn’t enough to repair your smile. If you need multiple treatments performed and you aren’t sure where to start, we’re more than happy to schedule a smile makeover consultation with you to help you build a detailed treatment plan. Many patients with extensive imperfections will utilize a combination of porcelain veneers, metal-free restorations, and clear aligners to improve the appearance of their teeth.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Shifting teeth doesn’t have to mean wearing a series of metal brackets and wires for two years at a time, especially if you only have mild to moderate levels of crooked teeth or an uneven bite. Using Invisalign’s clear aligners, a series of plastic trays designed to shift teeth into a straighter position, you can fix gaps, rotated and crooked teeth, or mild forms of underbite, overbite and other malocclusions.
