Cosmetic Dentistry

While traditional or general dentistry is focused on maintaining the health of a patient’s teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry refers to dental treatments designed to improve or enhance the appearance of a person’s smile.  Often, cosmetic dentistry treatments are employed to mend the appearance of teeth that are cracked, stained, chipped, crooked, or unevenly spaced.

Common cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

Perhaps the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry treatment today is tooth whitening.  While there are a number of at-home whitening or bleaching kits, patients who seek optimal results are better served by investing in professional tooth whitening at their cosmetic dentist’s office.  Porcelain veneers are also a very popular cosmetic dentistry procedure.  Veneers are thin shells of porcelain affixed to the fronts of teeth to mask the appearance of a number of dental flaws, including teeth that are stained, misshapen, misaligned, or even crooked.  Patients often opt to combine a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve what is commonly referred to as a new smile design or a smile makeover.

While cosmetic dentistry is often considered elective and thus not covered by most dental insurance plans, most cosmetic dentists offer convenient financing or credit options to help offset the cost of cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Patel and the Solana Beach Smiles staff are top notch! I have been going to Dr. Patel for the past few years and would recommend anyone in need of a new dentist to come here. She is very skilled, knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain her recommendations to you. You are in good hands with Dr. Patel!

I was visiting CA when I cracked a molar. Dr Jesse was able to get me in on short notice. His staff are so friendly and he and his staff are also very honest. My situation was a challenge which he met going above and beyond. I was so grateful to my daughter for recommending him!
