Complimentary Smile Consultation:

Until recently,  if you needed a dental crown, you had to prepare yourself for a lengthy, time-consuming process. When placing a traditional lab-fabricated crown, a dentist would have to remove a portion of the affected tooth in order to fit the crown properly. You would then receive a temporary and wait until the permanent crown was created, requiring another trip to the dentist for placement.

Now you can opt for a complete restoration placed in just one appointment with the CEREC dentist in Novato.This is one of the only systems available today for fabricating all ceramic dental restorations in just one office visit. With CEREC you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown!

New Crowns in Just One Office Visit!

Designing and placing dental restorations often requires multiple trips to the dentist. The first would involve an injection of anesthesia, preparation of the tooth, dental impressions, followed by placement of a temporary crown. A few weeks later the temporary crown would be removed and a permanent crown placed.

Today, using state-of-the-art CEREC technology, we can construct your new crown right in our office while you wait. You don’t need to return for a second visit and you don’t have to put up with the inconvenience of a temporary crown. CEREC crowns are completely metal-free, so they look natural and allow us to view the tooth by x-ray when it’s covered by a CEREC crown.

Health Benefits

A CEREC tooth restoration is convenient, but it is also healthy. We used to have few options for restoring decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam or gold. The CEREC dentist in Novato can use strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength and beauty.

With proper at-home oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist, a CEREC restoration can last a lifetime! Please contact our office for more information.

Contrary to what you might think, very few of us were born with the potential for a perfect “Hollywood” smile. Many of the bright, beautiful smiles you’re envious of may very well have had a little help from cosmetic dentistry.

Novato cosmetic dentist Dr. Steven McConnell offers a wide range of esthetic treatments to fit your needs. Your smile makeover may be as simple as teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding; or, we may decide that a combination of treatments would be best for helping you achieve your goals.

Problems We Fix with Cosmetic Dentistry

Today we have more options than ever for designing your perfect smile. Here are just a few of the problems we can address with our state-of-the-art esthetic treatments:

Teeth Staining or Discoloration

If your teeth are starting to look dull or stained, professional teeth whitening is often all that's needed to give your smile and your confidence a boost. 

Uneven Gaps and Spacing between Teeth

Your teeth may be in generally good shape, but uneven gaps and spacing can throw off the symmetry of your smile. Dental bonding is a conservative approach we can recommend, but our cosmetic dentist will also be happy to talk to you about porcelain veneers.

Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth 

Your teeth are highly durable, but they’re not indestructible. We will look at the most conservative option first, which is dental bonding. But based on your needs we may decide that porcelain veneers or even an all-porcelain crown would be a better choice for you.

Slight Tooth Misalignment

If you have been living with a slightly crooked smile because you don’t want braces, you may have other options. We can often conceal slight misalignments with porcelain veneers to create a harmonious, uniform appearance. But we also offer Invisalign clear braces if you would prefer a short-term, effective orthodontic treatment.

Your Smile Makeover Awaits!

There are so many combinations of treatments we can offer, and the best place to start is with a smile consultation. Our Novato cosmetic dentist will be happy to meet with you to find out what’s bothering you and how you would like us to help.

You invest a lot in your family’s oral health, so you need to take some thought when choosing a dentist who can handle the needs of all members of your family. You can enjoy the convenience of comprehensive dentistry with the Novato family dentist while ensuring that everyone’s oral health is monitored regularly.

Prevention Protects Oral Health

If you’re looking for the secret formula to having a problem-free smile, look no further than your semi-annual appointments for exams and cleanings. These visits are all about prevention, the first and most important step in dental care.

The American Dental Association recognizes the importance of prevention and recommends twice-yearly visits to your family dentist for checkups. These appointments typically include regular cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, routine x-rays, and other basic dental work.

A Typical Dental Exam

During your semi-annual visits to the Novato family dentist, you will receive a routine oral examination, including oral cancer screening, and a professional cleaning.

The professional cleaning is essential to get rid of stains and plaque buildup, which in turn prevents tooth decay and gum problems. Your dental team will provide recommendations for proper at-home brushing, flossing and rinsing to help reduce the buildup of plaque between regular appointments.

A significant benefit of choosing a family dentist is that they can also monitor your family’s oral health from early childhood into adulthood. The best dental care is about compassion and trusting relationships. Young children need to be introduced to dental care in a welcoming and comforting setting to develop a relationship with dentists that will last into adulthood.

Please Call for Your Next Appointment

It is especially important to schedule regular appointments for checkups so that problems can be identified as early as possible before more extensive and costly dental work becomes necessary. Take the stress out of making and keeping your regularly scheduled appointments by selecting a family dentist who can see to all your oral health needs.
