Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. —Thích Nhat Hanh
Your smile tells the world so much about you. At our office, we understand that in addition to having a healthy smile, you also want an attractive smile that you feel comfortable and confident showing to everyone. We have the tools and cosmetic dentistry treatments you need to get your smile in fantastic shape.
If your smile is not looking its best, call our Irvine dental office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Robertson. You and Dr. Robertson will discuss your goals and work together to create a treatment plan that will revitalize your smile and improve your self-confidence and self-esteem. As part of your smile makeover consultation, Dr. Robertson can get a lab-created diagnostic wax-up. This valuable tool will help you get an idea of how you will look once your transformation is complete.
Call our office today to learn more about these and other procedures.
Porcelain veneers are the secret behind many a flawless smile. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. Some types of veneers require that a small layer of enamel be removed while others can be placed right over the existing tooth structure. Dr. Robertson will examine your teeth and consider your goals when recommending the right type of veneers for you.
Veneers can fix a remarkable array of cosmetic flaws including chips and minor cracks, bleach-resistant discolorations, short or eroded teeth, gapped or narrow teeth, and even slightly crooked teeth. We’ll take digital images and impressions of your teeth to send to the lab that will be creating your veneers. When your veneers come back from the lab, we’ll ask you to return to our office to have them bonded to your teeth.
If you have more extensive damage as a result of decay or trauma, crowns are a good option. Crowns fit over the top of your teeth to protect and support a tooth that is no longer functioning as it should. At our office, we exclusively use all-porcelain crowns instead of metal crowns or ceramic-fused-to-metal crowns, which can leave a dark line right at the gumline.
All-porcelain crowns are just as durable as metal varieties, but they are also completely realistic in appearance. Once your crowns are placed, nobody will ever be able to tell which tooth has a crown and which one doesn’t.
Sometimes all your teeth need is a whitening treatment to look their best. Many of our patients are amazed at how new and fresh their smile looks after using a professional whitening treatment kit. We offer take-home whitening for our patients, an option that lets you whiten your teeth comfortably and privately at your convenience.
Professional whitening treatments contain a peroxide product in a concentration higher than you can get from an over-the-counter kit. You also receive customized trays made to fit your teeth. The higher strength of the product combined with the customized trays give you a level of control that you simply can’t get with a drugstore kit.
