Find out which cosmetic treatment fits your smile needs.

Everyone should have a smile they love. If you find yourself covering your smile whenever you laugh or talk, you might want to consider talking with your Garden Grove, and Newport Beach, CA, cosmetic dentist Dr. Timothy Bui about your options. It’s never too late to have a smile that you can’t wait to show off. Dr. Bui and his team can help. Here are some of our top cosmetic options.

Teeth Whitening

If commercial products just aren’t cutting it, it might be time to consider professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is particularly effective against yellowing teeth. Plus, when you come into the office for this treatment, we can tailor our whitening treatment to meet your needs.

The bleaching gel is placed on the teeth for about 15 minutes at a time, and then a special laser is directed at your teeth to activate the gel. In about an hour we can get teeth anywhere from three to seven shades brighter. With the proper care, teeth whitening results can last a year or more.

Dental Veneers

If you have minor gaps, overcrowding, chips, cracks, or other dental flaws, you may be looking for a way to hide these esthetic problems. Now you can with dental veneers. These small porcelain shells adhere to the front of your teeth to cover imperfections and give you a pristine smile.

First, your Garden Grove, and Newport Beach, CA, cosmetic dentist will remove a small bit of enamel from the front surface of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Veneers are affixed in place using a special dental resin, which we harden permanently to the tooth using a laser. Together we will choose the appropriate shade for your veneers prior to having them made.

Cosmetic Bonding

This is the most economic and non-invasive way to change your smile. Cosmetic bonding uses the same tooth-colored resin that is used to fill cavities. By shaping and molding this resin, we can easily cover chips and minor cracks, and even close small gaps between teeth. While bonding doesn’t fix more major dental problems, it can be a wonderful option for someone looking to correct more minor cosmetic issues.

Want to analyze your smile to see if you could be right for cosmetic dentistry? Your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Bui, created a series of videos to help you figure it out.
