Cosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Alexandra Garcia, DDS, MS, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!
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, MS, 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.
If you are considering getting dental crowns to treat chipped or damaged teeth, you are not alone. Many people consider getting some kind of restorative dentistry procedure at least once in their lives, from a simple cleaning to a dental crown placement. The dental crown procedure is quite simple. But you may have to cross a few hurdles. After hearing about the benefits of ceramic crowns, you might have your mind set on ceramics. Since different types of dental crowns are created for various concerns, you may be recommended another material. If you are determined to opt for ceramics, Dr. Garcia and Dr. Alexandra Garcia at Alexandra Garcia, DDS, MS can help you figure out a solution.
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!
Dental veneers are customized shells for the front surface of your teeth. They can hide stains, chips, cracks, discoloration, and any kind of imperfections. Veneers are extremely common in cosmetic dentistry and are available in tooth-colored porcelain or composite. They are used to enhance smiles and camouflage dental flaws.
Veneers and dental crowns are restorative solutions that can save your teeth, boost their appearance, and increase function. Even though they have similar benefits, veneers and dental crowns are not the same. Both these forms of treatment depend on the patient's teeth and what they are looking for.
There are many ways to take care of a tooth that is damaged in one way or another. One of the simplest is veneers. A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. 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, MS we know that veneers are a great way to change your smile for the better permanently.
Are you looking for ways to get a quick, beautiful smile? Dental veneers are perfect for individuals with gaps, chipped, or stained teeth. However, keep in mind that veneers are a permanent treatment, which means that you need to think long and hard about whether you want them. Veneers are extremely thin shells made from materials that have the same color as natural teeth. They cover the front of the teeth to boost the appearance of your smile while making your natural tooth enamel stronger than it is. Veneers are customized to the shape of every patient’s teeth.
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.
