It could be easier to achieve than you think, and we know that you’ll love the results. We look forward to the opportunity to improve your quality of life and self-confidence.
When you have several simultaneous flaws in your teeth, a strong option to consider is porcelain veneers. These custom-made ceramic shells cover the front surfaces of your affected teeth, successfully hiding these flaws from view. All that anyone will see is your attractive, natural-looking smile. In addition to appearing just like real teeth, porcelain veneers also resist stains and can last for many years before needing to be replaced.
Getting a tooth restored after decay or damage doesn’t mean that you need to let everyone know about it with blatantly metallic restorations. Instead, we use metal-free restorations for a perfectly seamless look and feel that may cause you to forget which teeth are real and which are prosthetic. In addition, metal-free restorations protect your teeth from sensitivity to hot and cold sensations, and they can certainly withstand the normal wear and tear you subject them to.
As a faster, less permanent alternative to porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding consists of using tooth-colored composite resin to do the following:
Over time, the constant barrage of the darkly pigmented foods and drinks you consume can leave unattractive stains on your teeth. In addition, your enamel can naturally wear down, revealing the yellow layer of dentin underneath. The good news is that we at Carlsbad Beach Dental offer teeth whitening services to bring back your teeth’s youthful glow. We utilize KöR whitening gel and trays to get the best, most reliable results available in dentistry.
Is it difficult for you to imagine how your smile will look after your cosmetic procedures? You’re not alone. When you’re used to seeing your teeth a certain way, it can be challenging to visualize how they will change. That’s why our dental office uses digital imaging to formulate and personalize your treatment plan. Our advanced technology allows us to give you a preview of your new and improved smile in 3D for more accuracy in planning and better, more realistic results in the end.
Are you ready to achieve your dream smile? With so many options to choose from, it’s normal to have a few questions. During your consultation, Dr. Addy will be happy to give you all the information you need. In the meantime, we’ve gathered a few of the most common questions we get about cosmetic dentistry below for your convenience.
The first step on your journey towards the beautiful smile you deserve is to schedule a consultation with your Carlsbad cosmetic dentist Dr. Addy. He’ll take the time to talk with you about your smile goals and address your concerns. Then, he’ll inspect your mouth for signs of issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and teeth grinding. These problems need to be corrected first, so he’ll work with you to get your oral health back on track if needed. Once your smile is healthy, he’ll fully explain all your options as well as which one he recommends for you.
Thanks to modern dental technology and techniques, traditional metal braces aren’t your only option for a straighter smile anymore! Depending on the severity of your case, there are several different treatments that can correct your misaligned teeth without a mouth full of metal. Cosmetic dental bonding is a quick and easy way to fill in small gaps and spaces between teeth. For teeth that are slightly crooked, porcelain veneers can be used to give you a straight, uniform set of pearly whites. If you have mild to moderate orthodontic issues or bite problems, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign clear aligners. Dr. Addy will help you choose the treatment that will best help you achieve your desired results.
Some dental insurance companies will cover parts of your treatment. Feel free to bring your dental insurance paperwork with you to your consultation and we’ll help you make the most out of your benefits. However, most dental insurance policies won’t cover the cost of cosmetic services. That’s why we’re proud to offer financing options through CareCredit. These plans will let you break up the cost of your treatment into smaller payments that easily fit into your monthly budget. During your initial visit, we’ll go over your personal estimate of costs as well as how to make achieving your dream smile as affordable as possible.
We want you to feel 100% confident in whichever treatment you choose. While we can help you get an idea of what your new smile will look like after each treatment with our digital imaging technology, you can also see real-life results! Our smile gallery showcases before and after pictures of real patients that chose to improve their smiles with cosmetic dentistry at Carlsbad Beach Dental. This way, when you begin your own treatment, you’ll already know that you’re going to love the final results!
