Looking for a smile makeover? Unhappy with the color, shape or overall appearance of your teeth?
Cosmetic dentistry can both enhance the appearance of your natural smile and improve your dental health. Dr. Kim can offer a unique blend of experienced, personalized dental care and advanced treatment options to meet your needs. She takes time with you to analyze the health, function, and comfort of your smile, discuss your cosmetic goals and recommend the most suitable options.
Do you have discolored or stained teeth?
Dr. Kim can evaluate the cause of your tooth stains or discoloration and offer the best option for whitening your smile with lasting results. Professional teeth whitening guarantees even results with less side effects. Each whitening treatment is customized to the patient and their needs. While a professional teeth whitening can often meet your needs, there are permanent treatment options for addressing certain types of stains or to alleviate the need for future touch-ups. They can include tooth bonding, and porcelain veneers.
Tooth bonding is quick and affordable but will only last for a few years. Veneers are a more permanent option and will last for decades if cared for properly.
Damaged or broken teeth?
Teeth that have minor damaged can lead to more complex dental concerns, even tooth loss, if left untreated. Dr. Kim offers several treatments that can repair your chipped, cracked or broken tooth and give you back a healthy, beautiful smile. Tooth bonding is an affordable treatment option that can be completed in a single visit. It involves using a tooth-colored composite resin that is applied directly to the teeth and is sculpted by hand into the desired shape. However, bonding does not last forever.
If you are interested in a more permanent, lasting option, Dr. Kim will recommend porcelain veneers. Here, very thin shells are applied to the front and sides of the tooth to cover up the damage.
If your teeth are crooked, Dr. Kim offers the option of discreet orthodontic treatment using Invisalign® clear braces. Invisible aligners make it easy and convenient to achieve the smile you desire. This treatment can be completed in as little as a single year. Invisalign works by wearing the clear aligners for 22 hours a day, removing only eat, brush and floss. The clear aligners are switched out about every one to two weeks. This will gradually move your teeth into alignment.
Smile Makeover Consultation
A smile makeover will begin with a consultation. Dr. Kim will go over all aspects of your oral health, learn more about your aesthetic goals and discuss our treatment options. Choosing the right cosmetic dentist, one who will also consider the impact of long-term dental health can impact the integrity of your result. It is important to build upon a healthy, functional oral foundation and address any underlying dental problems that could lead to a break down of your dentistry over time.
