Consultation: Novato | Mill Valley (415) 388-2172

Have you ever wished that you could have a flawless smile – one that lights up a room as soon as you enter? Maybe you’ve even looked longingly at pictures of celebrities and wished you had that “Hollywood smile.”

Chances are good that all those stunning celebrity smiles had a little help from cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers in particular. If you’re thinking that your budget can’t handle veneers, you may be pleasantly surprised at the smile transformation your Novato cosmetic dentist can achieve with just a few veneers strategically placed!

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are very thin shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain is an excellent material for veneers because it looks so much like natural dental enamel. Veneers are custom-made to match the shade of your own teeth, and the finished result is a flawless, natural-looking smile.

What Can Porcelain Veneers Do for Me? 

One of the significant benefits of porcelain veneers is that your cosmetic dentist can use them to correct a wide variety of esthetic dental flaws:
  • Mask cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Disguise the appearance of crooked teeth
  • Cover spaces lefts by gaps between teeth
  • Alter the appearance of severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Lengthen the appearance of teeth

Do Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?

Porcelain veneers are not only versatile, but they blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. The translucent quality of porcelain makes them an excellent choice for a cosmetic dental treatment that is flawless and looks just like your natural teeth – only better! In fact, chances are that no one will notice you’ve had any work done!

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a serious problem because it can progress to advanced stages with few or no obvious symptoms. Without treatment by the gum disease dentist in Novato, periodontal disease can impact your oral health as well as your overall general health.
 
The Centers for Disease Control estimates that almost 50% of adults over 30 have some level of periodontal disease. Emerging studies show a direct connection between periodontal disease and serious general health problems.

Comfortable Laser Dentistry Treats Gum Disease 

When periodontal disease reaches the advanced stages of infection (periodontitis) it can begin to loosen gum tissue which can lead to deterioration of the jaw if not treated. Non-invasive laser dentistry removes infected dental material quickly and with very little discomfort.

If you had periodontal disease in the past, your dentist may have performed gum surgery to eliminate the infection. Traditional gum surgery can be painful, and many patients put off treatment due to a negative experience with gum surgery in the past. 

Fortunately, the gum disease dentist in Novato offers laser periodontal treatment, a comfortable alternative to cut-and-stitch surgery. Benefits of this state-of-the-art procedure are:

  • No need to cut into tender gum tissue
  • Minimal bleeding during or after the procedure
  • Little to no recovery time

Treatment with dental lasers results in minimal bleeding, requiring virtually no recovery time. You will be able to go on with your day as usual immediately following treatment.

Health Benefits of Laser Periodontal Treatment

Laser dentistry provides other benefits as well: 

  • Since laser periodontal treatment does not require invasive cutting, there is minimal bleeding and no need for stitches.
  • In most cases, anesthesia and needles are unnecessary during laser treatment since there is little or no discomfort involved.
  • Laser dentistry destroys harmful bacteria and promotes healthy tissue regeneration.

Treatment for periodontal disease also helps protect your overall health. A strong connection has been established between the presence of periodontal disease and other chronic conditions such as heart disease, respiratory disease, pregnancy complications, and diabetes.

Please Call for An Appointment

If you suspect you have periodontal disease, please contact our office to arrange an appointment with our dentist. Catching gum disease early is the best way to prevent it from becoming serious and threatening your health.
