Cosmetic Dentistry in Ontario, CA
Research shows that smiling tricks your brain into being more positive. But what can you do if you are one of the 3 in 5 Americans who are self-conscious about their smiles? Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic dentistry have paved the way for transformative solutions. Cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance the appearance of your smile. At Esparza Dentistry, we provide a range of treatments to target your concerns and leave you with a flawless smile.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
If your teeth are crooked, stained, chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen, or otherwise flawed, you may be a strong candidate for a cosmetic dentistry treatment.
For individuals with cavities, gum disease, or another oral health issue, we will need to address these problems before beginning cosmetic treatment. If this applies to you, there’s no need to worry: our expert dental team designs comprehensive treatment plans that meet your dental needs and cosmetic goals.
Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
At Esparza Dentistry, we offer many cosmetic dentistry solutions. Your treatment options are based on the extent of your imperfections and your desired degree of transformation. At your free consultation, we will discuss whether a treatment that is both restorative and cosmetic—like a tooth-colored crown or mini dental implant—would suit your needs best.
Below are some of the popular cosmetic procedures performed at our office.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells that bond to the front surface of your teeth. Tailored to fit your teeth and achieve your smile goals, veneers are an excellent option for a dramatic smile transformation that looks and feels natural. They also treat a wide range of concerns: from chipped and discolored teeth to small or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers can help. A significant benefit of porcelain veneers is their durability and stain resistance. With veneers, you can smile proudly for more than 15 years.
Dental bonding is a versatile treatment that allows us to change the shape, color, and size of your teeth and repair chips and cracks. When we perform this procedure, we apply a tooth-colored composite resin material to your teeth. While the composite material is not as durable or stain-resistant as porcelain veneers, dental bonding is an excellent option for individuals who want a less expensive treatment option that provides a less dramatic transformation. Dental bonding is also suitable for those interested in a reversible option.
At Esparza Dentistry, we also use composite resin to fill cavities. Though cavities are a common dental issue, most people don’t want their filling to be noticeable. Silver (amalgam) fillings are easily seen in your mouth, even when applied to back molars. Composite resin dental fillings circumvent this issue using tooth-colored material that is shade-matched to your teeth. This restores your tooth’s function while providing an aesthetically pleasing result.
Orthodontic treatments can straighten teeth or fix a misaligned bite. Traditional treatments are effective but can be inconvenient and time-consuming. If you are looking for a more efficient remedy, Fastbraces® may be right for you. Using a patented bracket and wire system, fast braces offer results in about 100 days, with patients noticing improvements in as little as a few days.
If you want a more discreet treatment option, you might consider Invisalign®. This option uses a series of trays to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. Clear aligners like Invisalign can be removed for eating, playing sports and instruments, and attending special events like weddings and job interviews. While not as quick as fast braces, Invisalign provides a more efficient result than traditional braces.
CEREC crowns are same day dental crowns that repair worn, cracked, and decayed teeth. Dental crowns cap the damaged tooth, creating a barrier of protection to restore the tooth’s function. While it typically takes two or more appointments to receive a dental crown, we can provide same day crowns at Esparza Dentistry. Our office uses revolutionary CEREC technology to create in-house custom ceramic crowns. In one appointment, you can receive an aesthetically pleasing and reliable restoration. Also, because ceramic comes in different shades, we can match your crown to your natural teeth, creating a beautiful, natural result.
If you have lost teeth, you might consider a dental bridge, a row of prosthetic teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. A traditional bridge has crowns on each end that fit over healthy natural teeth. The artificial teeth in between cover the gap left by the missing teeth. However, we can use different types of bridges depending on the type and location of the missing tooth. While a dental bridge is considered a restorative treatment that improves your bite and prevents bone loss, it also offers cosmetic benefits. By closing the gap, you’ll be able to laugh and smile with confidence.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants replace missing teeth to restore your chewing function. Whether you have lost one tooth, many teeth, or all your teeth, mini dental implants can help by supporting restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. The implant is a small titanium screw with one end that attaches to your jawbone and another that sits above the gumline and connects to a restoration. Unlike traditional dental implants, we can typically place mini implants and mouth the restoration in one office visit. This is due to the size and design of the implants and the efficiency of the technique we use to place them. While mini implants offer a restorative solution to missing teeth, they also boast cosmetic benefits by creating a uniform smile.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Our smiles greatly impact our overall well-being, influencing our self-confidence, social interactions, and emotions. A confident smile can enhance our mood and foster positive connections with others. By addressing dental imperfections, cosmetic dentistry solutions allow you to showcase your smile proudly. Some procedures not only enhance aesthetics but restore, correct, or repair problems, leading to better oral health.
With natural-looking solutions and a range of treatment options, cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve your desired smile transformation.
Free Cosmetic Dentistry Consultations
While you likely know what imperfections you would like to fix, we don’t expect you to know exactly what treatment is best for you. At your free consultation, we’ll discuss your smile concerns, perform a comprehensive oral exam, take X-rays, and review your medical history. Based on this information, we will determine the procedure or combination of procedures that best suit your dental needs, goals, and budget. From there, you’ll weigh the benefits and risks of each option presented. We take our time to thoroughly answer your questions and discuss any concerns you might have before developing your personalized treatment plan.
