Dr. Natalia can cover up cosmetic flaws in just two visits to our office with porcelain veneers. These thin coverings can hide any number of imperfections, from chips and cracks to stubborn stains and even some misalignments. To place veneers, we remove a small portion of enamel from the surfaces of the front teeth, then securely affix each veneer to the prepared teeth. Porcelain veneers can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
Broken, decayed, or otherwise damaged teeth in the front of your smile need something a little sturdier than most cosmetic services can provide. Metal-free restorations blend cosmetic and restorative treatments to help you regain full health and beauty in the front teeth. Made of dental porcelain, ceramic, or occasionally zirconia, metal-free restorations are long-lasting and look just like your natural teeth.
Dental crowns and inlays/onlays repair damaged teeth and restore moderate to severe tooth decay. You and Dr. Natalia will thoroughly discuss your treatment plan to help you understand which is best for you, and why.
Composite resin can rebuild chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth, cover up stains, and close gaps between teeth. Dr. Natalia applies the biocompatible resin to the surface of the teeth, the sculpts a new form. Its precise color-matching guide helps composite resin blend perfectly with your natural tooth enamel, for a flawless end result. Direct bonding is a good alternative for patients with minor dental damage or those who wish for a more economical alternative to porcelain veneers. The procedure is usually completed in just one visit to Pearl White Dentistry, and direct bonding can stay intact for many years with proper care.
It’s natural for the teeth to darken or yellow over time, as they repeatedly come into contact with dark foods and beverages and are affected by imperfect dental hygiene, medications, and genetic factors. To erase the signs of age and help you enjoy a radiant, youthful smile, we recommend at-home teeth whitening. Customized trays hold the professional-grade bleaching gel right up against your teeth, for maximum brightening and the most beautiful results.
The length of your teeth plays a big role in how visually appealing your smile is. If you have short, stubby teeth or what we call a “gummy smile,” crown lengthening could be what you need to look your best. The procedure exposes enamel and is often recommended to create more space on a broken or injured tooth that needs a crown. To perform the surgical treatment, Dr. Natalia removes gum and/or bone tissue to reveal more of the tooth that is hidden underneath. Crown lengthening is performed under local anesthesia, and sedation is available as desired.
In addition to treatments that improve the way your teeth look, Dr. Natalia offers Botox for more youthful skin. Botox freezes the muscles that cause wrinkles when they contract to help you achieve smoother, radiant facial tissue. It is injected painlessly in a matter of minutes and can reduce the appearance of crows feet and lines around the eyes and in the forehead. Botox is also the only FDA-approved preventive treatment for chronic headaches and migraines.
