If you are missing one or more of your front teeth, you will want to do something about it. An anterior bridge could be the solution. With an anterior bridge, we will replace the tooth or teeth that have been lost with an artificial bridge. An anterior bridge is designed to match the color and the look of the rest of your teeth.

It is easy to damage your front teeth. It could be that you broke a front tooth in a fall, or maybe you chipped a front tooth by chewing on the cap of a pen. Your front teeth could also be damaged because of decay. If you have an imperfection in your front teeth there is a good chance that you will try to hide it when you smile. If the tooth is chipped or broken you also might have a hard time biting food to eat. Here at Alexandra Garcia, DDS, we are in the business of perfecting smiles. If one of your front teeth is damaged, we might suggest an anterior crown. This will give you back your smile, and help you to have a strong tooth once again.

One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients' smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile.
As we get older, our teeth pick up stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits. These stains, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!

There are many ways to take care of a tooth that is damaged in one way or another. One of the simplest is veneers. With a veneer, you will receive a new front surface for your tooth. Veneers are usually for cosmetic purposes, and they can help you to have a more beautiful smile. Some people have veneers on one or two teeth, while others have them on all of their teeth. Here at Alexandra Garcia, DDS we know that veneers are a great way to change your smile for the better permanently.

Dental Veneers & Bonding
A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.
Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, dental bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an aesthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
