Novato Dentist Discusses 3 Cosmetic Problems Patients Address With Cosmetic Dentistry

Written by Dr. McConnell on May 25, 2021

It is so common for patients to be unhappy with the states of their smiles, especially as they age. The good news is that there are a number of treatment options available to you if you are ready for a smile overhaul.

Below, our Novato cosmetic dentists discuss 3 different cosmetic problems that we take on, and how we do it. Let’s get started!

Uneven, crooked, or crowded teeth

A poorly aligned smile looks cluttered and can be difficult to keep clean compared to straight smiles. Treating these issues with orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign, allows our team to move your existing teeth into better respective positions. This also allows us to perfect any bite issues you may be dealing with.

There are, however, ways to improve the appearance of dental alignment without actually moving your teeth. Dental bonding and veneers, for example, are used to build out specific teeth and make the smile look more seamless.

Discolored enamel

When it comes to lightening discoloration, we can once again choose to either attack the core issue or cover staining with a fresh and clean dental material. Professional dental whitening is a topical treatment that lifts discoloration and restores the tooth to its natural color. Alternatively, composite bonding and veneers cover dark or dull teeth and make the entire smile appear fresh, young, and clean.

Cracked or chipped enamel

It is critical to address dental damage in a timely manner, so that cracks, chips, and cavities do not become more severe. Our dental team will remove any diseased or damaged tissue, before restoring the tooth. Custom dental crowns, veneers, and dental bonding can all be transformative when it comes to rebuilding smiles.

No matter what your smile looks like today, our Novato dentists are here to help you love your smile well into the future. Give our team a call to get started!
