We’ll work with you to fulfill your vision and answer your questions while putting you at ease throughout the process.

Today we have more options than ever before for making over your smile. When we meet for your initial consultation, we’ll discuss these with you. Until then, you might have some questions about cosmetic dentistry. 

What is a cosmetic dentist?

We are restorative dentists who are experts in the art of smile design. We have put a great deal of emphasis on studying the concepts of smile design and the innovative materials used for a smile makeover. We have made it our life’s work to remain up-to-date on the latest innovations in dentistry.

What is the difference between cosmetic and restorative dentistry? 

There is some overlap between cosmetic and restorative dentistry. However, a cosmetic dentist goes beyond restoring your teeth to their proper function — our goal is to achieve the most optimal esthetic result and satisfy the vision that you have for your smile.

What can I expect at the initial consultation?

Before you come in for the initial consultation, ask yourself some important questions:

  • Are your teeth dull and discolored?
  • Are chips and cracks detracting from your smile?
  • Do you have crooked teeth or spaces between teeth that you would like eliminated?  

During your initial consultation, we will talk to you about your goals for your smile makeover. It’s a great idea to bring in photos to show us what you would like your future smile to look like. 

Next, the Novato Cosmetic Dentist will conduct a thorough exam to determine if your cosmetic issues are the result of any underlying health issues. From there, we’ll walk through treatment options, including pricing and timelines, and develop a plan of action.
