Get the healthy, flawless smile you’ve always wanted.
Sonoma Smiles performs several cosmetic dental procedures at our office in Rohnert Park that will help you improve the look and function of your teeth. Read on for descriptions of some of our most common procedures, and schedule an appointment with Wayne Sutton, DDS to learn more.
Porcelain veneers are handcrafted, custom-made, thin shells of dental porcelain placed on your front teeth. They are stain resistant and custom tinted to blend with surrounding teeth.
Veneers can dramatically transform your smile by correcting flaws like:
Chips, stains, gaps, and cracks on your front teeth can easily detract from an otherwise attractive appearance. But if you’re hesitant about investing in dental veneers, consider cosmetic bonding instead. Although bonding doesn’t last as long as veneers, it is generally faster and less expensive than bonding. Plus, like veneers, bonding resists stains, so it holds its natural-looking color.
How we can help: Your dentist will use the same custom-tinted, liquid resin used for white fillings for the procedure. Once he or she has prepared your tooth or teeth, your dentist will tint the resin to blend with the existing tooth enamel and apply it as needed. A soft light will then harden the substance, and your dentist will sculpt and polish the newly shaped tooth so it looks completely natural.
You may associate braces with middle school or high school students, but more adults than ever are turning to orthodontics to improve their bite and reposition their teeth for cosmetic reasons. Modern braces, such as Invisalign, can be made from clear or tooth-colored structures, and some can be effective in as little as six months.
Are you looking for that Hollywood smile? Patients who want to focus on tooth preservation by minimally altering their natural teeth will enjoy the benefits of Lumineers. Your Lumineers can be installed in two easy visits, and the procedure is painless.
Having the correct balance of healthy, well-contoured gum tissue helps to compliment the frames of the teeth and provide a radiant smile. The process is painless and is done right here in our Rohnert Park cosmetic dental office.
When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening, or bleaching, is quite effective. Your dentist can administer a higher concentration of whitening solution than over-the-counter systems, so the results are more significant. We offer several types of teeth whitening procedures at our Rohnert Park dental office. Your dentist will help you determine the best solution for your unique lifestyle and goals.
How we can help: Chairside or in-office teeth whitening is performed in about 20 minutes. Your dentist will use either a highly concentrated bleaching solution or a gel-and-light system to whisk away stains caused by common foods, beverages, tobacco, age, and/or tetracycline medications. If you would prefer to lighten your teeth at home, professional take-home kits can do the job in about two weeks. Both systems yield amazing results of up to 10 shades difference. In some cases, your dentist may suggest a combination of home and in-office bleaching. If teeth whitening does not work for you, consider porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding to indefinitely eliminate stains.
