Discover how beautiful healthy teeth can be at Marin Modern Dentistry!

Modern cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the teeth you’ve always wanted, no matter what the current state of your smile. Whether you want to whiten your teeth, straighten your smile, or correct an unsightly bite misalignment—the cosmetic team at Marin Modern Dentistry will help you find a solution.

Our cosmetic team believes that cosmetic dentistry should enhance the health as well as the appearance of a patient’s smile. We use innovative cosmetic solutions to optimize your bite and dental health while giving you a sparkling smile.

We offer a variety of cosmetic services including:

Dental Implants

Dental implant technology allows us to replace missing teeth with more natural and attractive results than ever before. The dental implant root is a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jaw. The titanium post bonds with the natural jawbone, and then it is capped with a natural-looking dental restoration. The result is a replacement tooth that looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin layers of white, natural-looking porcelain that are bonded to teeth. Veneers are a popular cosmetic option because they can completely transform the look of a patient’s smile in just a few appointments. Veneers can:

  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Repair chips, decay and worn teeth
  • Lengthen or reshape teeth
  • Disguise misaligned teeth
  • Whiten a patient’s smile
  • Achieve ideal tooth shape for oral health


Invisalign is the innovative, metal-free way to straighten your teeth and achieve a stunning smile. Clear plastic aligners gradually shift teeth into their ideal positions. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn, and completely removable for brushing and flossing. Importantly, our Invisalign team uses these aligners to improve the beauty and the health of a patient’s smile. With Invisalign you can achieve an even and stable bite—which helps prevent premature dental deterioration and wear and tear.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments can erase enamel stains and give your teeth a healthier, younger looking smile. Our office uses the fast and effective Zoom! ® Whitening system for dramatic results. We also offer at-home teeth whitening kits so that patients can maintain white teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Old dental fillings were metallic, so they looked silver or dark, marring a patient’s smile. Modern composite resin fillings are white and natural looking. Whether you require a new filling, or you’d like to replace outdated amalgam restorations, natural-looking tooth-colored fillings will help you maintain your smile’s sparkling appearance.
