Improve Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry

By October 17, 2023No Comments

By concealing minor imperfections and enhancing your smile’s appearance, you can feel more confident in your everyday life. At Auburn Dental Center, we know your smile is important to you, and you want it to look its best. Our dentist in Bakersfield provides a variety of services to improve the appearance of your smile.

Some of the procedures we offer include the following:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments because results are usually noticeable right away, and the process is quick. At-home whitening kits are easy to use but may take several weeks to work their magic, while gel-tray systems can make your teeth several shades whiter in as little as one visit. No matter which method you choose, you’ll end up with a beautiful smile to show off to the world!

If you opt for professional teeth whitening, you’ll have access to a treatment that really works. The bleaching agents used in the dental office are much stronger than what you can purchase at the store, so you’ll see quicker and more dramatic results. Be sure to practice good oral hygiene habits after the whitening process to ensure that your new smile stays bright for as long as possible.

Dental Veneers

The most common cosmetic dental treatment is dental veneers, which are made of thin porcelain shells that are attached to the front of the teeth in the smile zone. Veneers can be used to cover wide gaps between teeth or to conceal small chips or cracks. They are customized to fit the patient’s smile and can help create a more youthful appearance.

This type of cosmetic dentistry treatment is also extremely versatile and can be used to address a variety of issues. With proper care and maintenance, dental veneers can last for a long time.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure that uses a resin material to fill in gaps and improve the appearance of teeth. The resin material is tinted to match the natural color of the tooth so that it looks natural when you smile. This treatment is commonly used for patients who are dealing with minor imperfections. It doesn’t require any preparation, so you can simply come in and walk out with a new smile. The final results are immediate, so you don’t have to wait to enjoy your new look. With good oral hygiene, this treatment can last several years before it needs to be touched up.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that a dentist places into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth in place. When anchored in the jaw, the dental implant fuses with the bone to provide a stable foundation for an artificial tooth. At Auburn Dental Center, we proudly offer implant dentistry services as part of our comprehensive dental care approach to help patients rebuild their smiles after tooth loss.
