Your closet is a study in current fashion. No matter how fast trends are or what season it is, you always walk out the door looking camera ready. You spend extra time in front of the mirror trying to come up with new outfits that will draw the eyes of those around you. The biggest compliment is when strangers come up and ask you where you got your clothes. You wish you could control the look of your smile just as easily. You feel that they are the last thing missing from your complete image. A smile really does tie everything together. Thanks to the team at Sierra Smiles, you can now improve your look with teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, and porcelain veneers in Pasadena.
Reasons for Cosmetic Dentistry
Even if you brush and floss your teeth consistently, they can do little to improve the appearance of your smile. They are great when it comes to maintaining their health, but they can’t address issues such as tooth color, shape, size, and spacing. Cosmetic dentistry helps fill this gap by taking already healthy teeth and making them look pristine. Your dentist in Pasadena at Sierra Smiles has a few way of accomplishing this.
Years of coffee, wine, tobacco, or ageing can leave teeth stained and discolored. The best way to turn back the clock is with teeth whitening. You can have your teeth whitened in-office, or even in the comfort of your own home. Our in-office whitening takes only an hour and uses a light-activated bleaching gel to take away years of stains from your teeth. Patients with a little more time may choose to whiten at home, and in 2 easy visits can be sent home with a custom mouth tray and bleaching gel. You only need to wear the tray and gel for 30 minutes a day for 2 weeks for the full effect. Each treatment can leave your teeth up to 10 shades whiter and last for several months with routine brushing and flossing.
Whenever you have a tooth that is damaged due to decay or injury, the structure needs to be reinforced. Traditional amalgam fillings accomplished this, but to the detriment of your smile’s overall appearance. Tooth-colored fillings can help restore your tooth while seamlessly blending in with your smile, assuring that you are the only one who knows it is there.
A complete smile makeover is available with porcelain veneers. They are one of the few procedures that can aesthetically address a variety of dental issues and leave your teeth sparking. Porcelain veneers can correct:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Obvious gaps between teeth
Porcelain veneers are actually extremely thin ceramic coverings that fit on the front of your teeth. They can dramatically alter the look of your smile, or just give you a simple touch up; it is all up to you. You can get veneers in as little as two visits, and the procedure is entirely painless. Afterward, not only does your smile look great, but your teeth are just as strong and practical as ever. They really are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic treatments available.
