Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Today’s dental technology is used for a wide array of cosmetic dentistry treatments unheard of a decade ago. Mission Dental stays up to date with these latest techniques, and Dr. Spero in particular has received certifications from USC for several cosmetic dentistry procedures. We have the training, certifications, and experience to offer a broad set of cosmetic dental services to our patients. They are described below.
Invisalign braces are a more cosmetically appealing type of braces for adults and teens. Rather than unsightly metal wires, they are in the shape of “aligners” that are custom fitted and slip over your teeth. Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed before eating or brushing your teeth, and are placed back over your teeth after. They are made of clear, BPA-free plastic and blend in with your natural tooth color. Mission Dental’s cosmetic dentists are certified to fit and sell this exciting new Invisalign technology.
Ceramic dental crowns:
Dental crowns can be made of gold, alloys or ceramic. The closer the crown to the front of the mouth, the more visible the crown will be, so in those situations ceramic dental crowns will match the surrounding teeth more closely. Our cosmetic dentists can work with you to find a perfect match to the rest of your smile.
Aiming for a perfect smile? Dental veneers may be an option for chipped or discolored teeth. A thin layer of porcelain is adhered to the outside of your natural tooth, matching the color perfectly. Mission Dental’s cosmetic dentists can help you achieve a natural, beautiful look with dental veneers.
There is a new alternative to dental veneers called the Snap-On Smile®. This is a removable arch that snaps over your teeth to give you an instant new smile. It’s more affordable than veneers, and is available for upper or lower teeth. We take impressions of your teeth, so it is built to conform to your teeth precisely, and looks very natural. No drilling or shots are involved; just a couple of visits with the dentist.
Implant dentists have specialized surgical training to create and place implants into the jaw properly. Our family dentists at Mission Dental have this specialized training and also the experience necessary to do this most critical dental implant work. Because these can be rather long procedures, we also offer sedation dentistry to provide a more comfortable experience.
Our cosmetic dentists do teeth whitening using custom-fitted trays that you can use at home. We will take the time to explain the details of how to use the trays, and recommend a plan based on your individual dental needs. Brighten your smile today with teeth whitening!
