Don't hide your smile, improve it! Cosmetic dentistry in Garden Grove, CA, & Newport Beach, CA, can help give you the confidence to smile again. Dr. Timothy Bui offers a variety of cosmetic treatments for all your dental needs.

Teeth Whitening

The first thing that most people who want to improve their smile think about is teeth whitening. Regular brushing keeps your teeth healthy, but for a truly bright white smile, you should consider professional whitening. In-office whitening only takes an hour and brightens your smile by up to eight shades.


If you have chipped or cracked teeth your dentist may recommend this treatment. Using a dental bonding material, your dentist will fill and reshape your damaged teeth. 

Dental Veneers

Veneers are another alternative to enhance your smile, provided by your cosmetic dentist in Garden Grove, CA, & Newport Beach, CA. They are thin shells that cover the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections and give you a perfect smile.

Dental Implants

If you have one or more teeth that can't be repaired with bonding or veneers or have a gap in your smile, dental implants are an excellent option because they can replace one or more teeth. Titanium posts are affixed to the patient's jaw and it is on these that the replacement crown is bonded, making for a very long-lasting addition to your smile.

Your dentist can find the best combination of cosmetic treatments specifically for you.

Don't Delay

Bonding your teeth is a low-maintenance and budget-friendly option for enhancing your smile.

If you're considering a cosmetic dentistry procedure, you're in good company. It is estimated that Americans spend $2.75 billion on improving the overall appearance of their teeth each year. Dental bonding, in which a plastic resin that matches the color of the Bondingenamel is applied to the surface of the teeth, is one of the most affordable and non-invasive procedures available at Dr. Timothy Bui's office. Read on to learn more:

Budget-Conscious, Rapid Results

Bonding. also referred to as adhesive dentistry, is among some of the most cost-effective and quick cosmetic dentistry procedures available today. It may even be covered by insurance if it is intended to fill a cavity or repair a tooth's structure. The composite resin is easily molded by your Newport Beach dentist, meaning that it will not entail several appointments for fitting and reshaping, as veneers or other restorations often require. Appointments typically take less than an hour; longer if multiple teeth need bonded. Most of the time, anesthesia is not necessary, except in some cases of cavity fillings.

Best Candidates for Bonding

The tooth-colored resin can be used to repair small yet visible cavities. It can also fill small spaces in between teeth. The resin can also extend the length of the teeth and correct chips or cracks. Care must be taken not to chip the bonding material once it is applied. Chewing on hard objects such as pens or ice is discouraged. A whitening regimen may need to be used prior to bonding if the teeth are considerably discolored. If your teeth have sustained a considerable amount of damage, they may be better suited for other restorations such as crowns or veneers.

With proper care, bonding can last many years. Talk to the dental professionals at Dr. Bui's office in Newport Beach to determine if this procedure can help restore confidence about your smile!
