Learn more about the many ways cosmetic dentistry could be right for you.cosmetic dentistry

Are you ready to feel confident showing off your smile at your next big office meeting or date? Well, it’s a bit hard to feel confident smile if you hate the way your smile looks, right? Fortunately, you have our Hayward, CA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Robert Wick, on your side who can revamp your smile in a host of unique and great ways to help you achieve the look that will make you feel self-assured in your appearance.

Bonding and Contouring

For all of life’s little imperfections, these simple, inexpensive and non-invasive cosmetic options may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Dental bonding uses the same moldable tooth-colored resin used for dental fillings. The only difference is that the bonding material is being matched to the tooth and then applied over these imperfections without the need for drilling or anesthesia. Bonding can cover small chips, cracks, discolorations and even gaps between teeth. Bonding can also improve the overall shape or length of a tooth.

Contouring may even be recommended in conjunction with bonding (they often go hand in hand). During contouring treatment, our Hayward dentist will carefully and painlessly shave off trace amounts of tooth enamel in order to reshape a tooth. This can be a great option for someone who deals with ragged or excessively sharp or pointy teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Ever wished you could remove those stubborn dental stains or brighten yellowing, dull teeth? Not finding the results you had hoped for with whitening toothpastes or over-the-counter whitening trays? If so, then you may just want to consider the strongest whitening system on the market. With our higher quality and significantly stronger whitening gel, your teeth are sure to become several shades whiter in just one session. Whitening is a great option for someone who wants to remove stains caused by consuming certain stain-producing foods and drinks, or for someone who has used tobacco products in the past.

Dental Veneers

Sometimes the cracks, chips and other imperfections you have are a little bit harder to tackle with a simple teeth whitening session or with bonding and contouring. If the issues you have are still only cosmetic but are a bit more extensive then we may recommend hiding these problems with porcelain veneers.

These ultra thin tooth-colored shells are bonded to the front of teeth to improve the overall appearance, color, shape and size of your smile. They can also cover multiple imperfections of different severities and veneers could even get your smile a bit straighter, too.
