Cosmetic dentistry brings smiles to life in San Mateo, CA
Technically, cosmetic dentistry is any procedure intended solely to enhance the appearance of your smile. However, there is a great deal of overlap between restorative and aesthetic treatments.
Here are some of the visual aspects of your smile that can be improved with cosmetic dentistry:
- Surface stains and deep discoloration.
- Silver-colored fillings and old, darkened dental work.
- Enamel imperfections such as chips, fractures, bumps, and pits.
- Teeth that are worn down.
- Teeth that look too long or short.
- Teeth with unusual shape or size.
- Gaps between teeth.
- Uneven spacing, crowding, overlaps, and turned teeth.
- Missing teeth.
- A “gummy smile” or ragged gum line.

Your individualized strategy could be just one procedure, a comprehensive makeover completed as quickly as possible, or improvements phased in as your schedule and budget allow.
