If you want a whiter, straighter and more attractive smile then you’ve come to the right place.

No matter whether you want to remove stubborn dental stains to brighten your teeth or you want to hide that small chip in your front tooth, there are many ways in which our Hayward, CA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Robert Wick, can help you achieve a more symmetrical and beautiful smile through the help of cosmetic dentistry.

More about Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry specializes in enhancing and improving the shape, size, color, and overall look of your smile. While the goal of cosmetic dentistry isn’t to restore damaged teeth, in some situations, the cosmetic treatments available from our Hayward practice, such as dental veneers, can reinforce and strengthen teeth. This can be a particular benefit for patients who have worn teeth due to teeth grinding or jaw clenching.

Cosmetic dentistry is also able to,

  • Whiten your teeth and remove stains
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Straighten your smile
  • Cover chips and cracks (as well as internal discolorations)
  • Even out “gummy smiles”

If you can think of it, cosmetic dentistry can do it! Besides enhancing your teeth and giving you a makeover, you may also discover that getting cosmetic dentistry will also improve your oral health. This is because you’re more likely to need to change certain everyday habits in order to benefit your smile. This includes everything from eating a healthy diet and avoiding stain-causing foods and drinks to quitting smoking. You may also find that you’ve gotten better about flossing every day because you want to keep your new smile looking its best!

If you are someone who deals with headaches as a result of TMJ disorder this could be the result of a misalignment. If you are an older teen or adult dealing with crookedness, crowding, or gaps between teeth, then Invisalign may be able to improve your headache symptoms and jaw pain by correcting this misalignment problem with the use of transparent aligners rather than metal braces.

Of course, we would be remiss not to mention the huge boost to your self-esteem that cosmetic dentistry can offer. Most people turn to us for cosmetic dentistry because they are unsatisfied with their smiles, which can greatly impact their self-confidence. After all, once you feel more confident in your appearance, you may finally find yourself asking your crush on a date or asking your boss for that promotion!
