Cosmetic Dentistry in Valencia, CA
Your smile is usually the very first thing that others notice about you. The quality of your smile plays a major role in how others see you and can make or break the impressions that you make. Even minor flaws can have a major impact. At Erik P. Cadra DMD, we can improve the quality of your smile, and boost your confidence, with cosmetic dentistry.
Teeth whitening is a procedure that is performed to restore the natural white brilliance to your teeth, thus enhancing the beauty of your smile. We offer in-office whitening. Whitening your teeth in the office takes only one appointment and about an hour of your time. It can whiten your teeth up to 12 shades in just one visit.
Dental bonding is a treatment used to treat minor dental imperfections. This treatment uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material that bonds to the surfaces of your teeth. Bonding is incredibly versatile. The material can be molded and shaped to fill cracks, eliminate gaps, and completely transform the size or shape of a tooth.
Porcelain veneers are an alternative to bonding. This treatment uses thin shells of porcelain that are made to be bonded to the front surfaces of teeth affected by minor flaws. Porcelain perfectly imitates the color and light reflection properties of your natural teeth, providing a realistic restoration. Additionally, porcelain is stronger than composite resin, and it is stain-resistant.
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and wires, which are metal and very noticeable, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to correct the alignment of your teeth. The aligners resemble whitening trays or mouth guards in appearance. They are made from impressions of your mouth and help to move your teeth to where they need to go. Once in your mouth, they practically disappear from view, giving you a much more aesthetic treatment for improving your smile.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. For more information and to schedule your consultation, call Erik P. Cadra DMD at 661-502-6990 today.
