When Your Smile Needs a Makeover | Manhattan Beach Dentist

Is your smile everything you want it to be? Do you wish that you had the Hollywood smile of your favorite celebrity? If you have some flaws to your smile, don’t worry – their smiles probably needed work as well. Are you ready for a smile makeover? It’s time to make that dental appointment – you need a game plan.

Both bonding and porcelain veneers will likely be suggested for a treatment option. Both are used to cover dental imperfections, but procedures are quite different. Dental bonding uses a smooth tooth-colored solution that is applied to the flawed teeth and can remedy anything from covering stains to covering up small chips and gaps. Bonding is used on patients who need one or two teeth corrected.

While bonding is applied to your actual teeth, veneers fit over the front and underside of your tooth, covering it completely, making it ideal for a full set reconstruction. Both are cosmetic procedures used to treat similar problems, but veneers may be a better alternative in cases where the patient wants to adjust the size or shape of the tooth.

A dental crown can be used to strengthen a tooth, improve appearance and can be placed on top of a dental implant. With advancements in dental technology like the CEREC system, you can get all of this done in one day. The scanner that your dentist uses takes excellent 3D images of your jawline and the computer takes excellent images of the area for the crown, making these the more precise and natural-looking.
