When it comes to small details, the mind does everything it can to remember facial features. The smile stands out as one of the most recognizable features, making it a powerful and influential part of one’s identity. If you find yourself hiding your smile more than showing it off, even around friends and family, New U Dental can help. By scheduling a consultation to discuss cosmetic dentistry with our Van Nuys, CA dentist, we’ll be able to hear your concerns directly and develop a treatment plan based solely on your needs, whether it’s a simple touch-up or a full smile makeover.
When you have multiple imperfections in your smile that you’ve developed over time, it can feel impossible to address everything all at once. Porcelain veneers is one of the more popular cosmetic treatments out there specifically for this reason. Not only can you cover everything from cracks to chips as well as permanent stains and minor gaps between teeth with a single treatment, but you can also ensure your smile looks radiant from top-to-bottom thanks to highly customized ceramic dental materials.
Restoring your tooth’s function is a top priority for our dentists at New U Dental. Of course, protecting previously damaged teeth doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice your smile’s appearance along the way. That’s why we use both Zirconia and BruxZir crowns, which combine the best of both worlds when it comes to the long-term health of your enamel. Every restoration we provide is personalized to your needs, so you can expect a long-lasting solution for damaged or otherwise imperfect teeth.
If you’re looking for minor and more affordable treatments to address small issues with your enamel, cosmetic bonding is a quick and effective way to get it done. Through the use of composite resin, the same material used to repair cavities in teeth, we can fill in small chips and cracks, paint over permanent discolorations, and even fill small gaps in your teeth to make it look more uniform throughout. In most cases, treatment can also be performed in just one visit!
Wish your smile was brighter? Want to remove stains that no amount of brushing seems to? With teeth whitening solutions from Zoom! and GLO, you can make your smile multiple shades whiter either in our accommodating dental office or within the comfort of your own home, depending on your preference. In-house solutions can usually be completed in one visit, while at-home options generally take about two weeks for the same results.
Excess gum tissue generally does not cause any harm to your oral health. However, many people note that it covers up more of their natural tooth enamel than they’d wish. If you believe that you have what many people call a “gummy smile,” then gum recontouring may be right for you. After providing sufficient local anesthetic to your gum tissue, we carefully remove and reshape small amounts to not only make teeth more visible, but your gum line more even.
