A lucky few of us are born with well-balanced, perfectly straight smiles. For the rest of us, there’s cosmetic dentistry!

If you have been thinking about straightening and perfecting your smile, our Novato cosmetic dentists are here to help. Keep reading to learn more about some of your treatment options.

Traditional orthodontics: this tried and true treatment uses brackets and wires to move teeth into healthier, and more attractive, positions. Orthodontic treatment is often beneficial for patients who need to dramatically improve their dental structures and bite alignments.

Invisalign: Invisalign offers an alternative to traditional orthodontics. This treatment uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth, rather than relying on metal brackets or wires. Invisalign is quite discreet because the aligners allow the natural teeth to show through during the treatment process. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so you’ll be able to eat, drink, and clean your smile normally.

Dental bonding: bonding can transform the appearance of the smile without actually moving the natural teeth at all. Our dental team is able to apply custom-shaded dental resin to specific spots on the teeth in order to close gaps in the smile and give the teeth a more streamlined appearance. One benefit of bonding is that the entire treatment process can be completed in just one appointment.

Porcelain veneers: like bonding, veneers cover the natural teeth in order to give the smile a straighter appearance. Veneers are individually crafted from porcelain, and then permanently attached to the patient’s teeth. With veneers, we are able to close gaps between teeth, make smiles appear straighter, and lengthen disproportionately short enamel.

As you can see, there are a number of treatment options that can be used to give your smile a straighter, more perfect appearance. Our Novato cosmetic dentists will help you assess your options so that you can pick the perfect treatment for you. Get started by scheduling a consultation with our team!
