What can a cosmetic dentist do for you? We know that a positive first impressions has a lot to do with the your appearance. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you and, at our Novato Dentist office, we believe it should create a memorable first impression. A beautiful smile not only changes the way people see you, but it can give your self-confidence a boost and make you feel good about yourself and the way you look.

We know that many people are not happy with the appearance of their smile. What most people don’t realize, though, is that the lack of a dazzling smile may not just be cosmetic but can also have an impact your general dental health. Teeth that are cracked, decayed, missing, or incorrectly aligned can alter your appearance and make you feel self-conscious. But these conditions can often lead to other serious oral health problems such as periodontal disease, jaw pain, and difficulty chewing. By combining cosmetic dentistry with general dental treatments, a cosmetic dentist can correct these issues, restoring your oral health and beautiful smile.
