Why let your smile be anything less than perfect when there’s cosmetic dentistry?cosmetic dentistry

Most people end up just putting up with cosmetic imperfections in their smile because they don’t really know what their options are to change it. Our South Pasadena, CA, cosmetic dentists, Dr. John Chu and Dr. Mary Lin, are here to explain the different options that are out there so you know what we can do to help your smile.

Dental Stains

No one wants a yellow smile and yet it happens over time. Maybe you just can’t tear yourself away from that coffee or you quit smoking but are still faced with nasty discolorations. Don’t worry; our South Pasadena dentist has you covered.

If you have external stains (yellow or brown stains), this can easily be treated with professional teeth whitening. Choose from our in-office whitening system if you want significant whitening results quickly, or opt for our at-home whitening system if you prefer to do it from the comfort of your own home.

Tooth Loss

Nothing is more embarrassing than having gaps in your smile where your teeth used to be. If this has happened to you, it’s important to know that you have options. If you are willing to wait a few months to get a tooth replacement, then choose dental implants, which is the closest thing you can get to real teeth. They offer an amazing array of benefits including preserving jawbone health and preventing changes to your facial structure.

Of course, dental bridges and even dentures can be ideal options for patients who may not be ideal candidates for implants. These restorations have stood the test of time and continue to be a popular way to replace one or more missing permanent teeth.

Misshapen or Uneven Teeth

From cracks and chips to gaps in your smile, there are many imperfections that can befall you at any point in time. Luckily, dental veneers can be bonded to the front of your teeth to cover gaps, discolorations, malformed teeth, minor overlapping or crooked teeth, as well as cracks, chips and fractures. These porcelain shells are made to look just like the surface of your teeth and are custom-made to cover over each front area of an individual tooth.
