Cosmetic Dentistry in Carmel Mountain Ranch

Get the smile you’ve always wanted at Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care

Everyone deserves a smile that they can be proud of. At Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care, we know crooked, chipped or discolored teeth can have a negative effect on a patient’s self-esteem. That’s why you can trust our state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures to craft a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you can be proud of, and use often!

If your teeth make you feel uncomfortable, you may find yourself covering your smile, avoiding social situations, and feeling generally uncomfortable. It doesn’t have to be this way. Whether your teeth are stained, slightly damaged, misshapen, gapped, or are crooked, cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Collado and the team at Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care will restore your confidence.

The Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has a number of benefits that reach beyond aesthetics:

  • Restore your self-confidence – The biggest benefit of cosmetic dentistry is that you’ll feel great about how you look, and you’ll be able to smile, speak, laugh, and eat confidently.
  • Look younger – Cosmetic dentistry helps reverse stains and yellowing from aging, making you look younger and healthier.
  • Strengthen teeth – Some treatments, like cosmetic crowns and veneers, can actually help strengthen your teeth, keeping your mouth healthy and strong for years to come.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Professional take-home teeth whitening treatments from Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care are affordable and effective, and allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Collado will provide you with clinical-strength, custom-made whitening trays. Simply wear these according to his instructions for several weeks, and your teeth will gradually become whiter and brighter, as the peroxide-based compound “bleaches” away surface stains.

At the end of your treatment, you’ll look and feel younger, and the gradual whitening effect looks natural, so nobody has to know that you’re having your teeth whitened.

Porcelain Veneers

If you’re looking to mask unsightly stains or imperfections, porcelain veneers could be your key to achieving a perfect smile. Veneers are extremely thin “shells”, usually made of porcelain or another ceramic material. They are shaped to fit over your natural teeth, and bonded into place permanently to give you a long-lasting, beautiful smile. Veneers can be used to treat almost any cosmetic issue, from gapped or slightly-crooked teeth, to significant tooth stains, misshapen teeth. The process is fast and non-invasive, and typically takes only two appointments at Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care.

Understanding The Process Of Veneer Placement

After Dr. Carpenter or Dr. Collado ensure that you are a good candidate for veneers, you will come in for your first appointment. At this appointment, a very thin layer of enamel will be removed from your teeth to make room for your veneers and ensure that they fit perfectly.

Then, impressions and images will be taken of your teeth and sent to a dental lab, where your veneers will be manufactured. You’ll be sent home with a temporary set of veneers and when your permanent set arrives, one of our dentists will permanently attach them during your last appointment. Your permanent veneers will be bonded into place with dental cement, buffed and polished, and you’ll leave our office with a bright, fresh smile.

The Benefits Of Veneers

  • Completely natural look and feel – Veneers look and feel just like real teeth because they are made out of high-quality porcelain that matches your enamel perfectly.
  • Durable, stain-resistant, and low maintenance – Porcelain resists staining and is very durable. To care for your teeth, simply brush and floss normally, and avoid chewing non-food objects like pens, fingernails, and ice.
  • Highly versatile – Veneers can treat stains, gaps, misshapen or damaged teeth, crowded teeth and more, making them a highly versatile cosmetic option.

Bonding, Shaping And Contouring

Dental bonding is the process of using advanced dental resin to fix minor tooth damage and cosmetic issues, such as chipped or slightly gapped teeth. Dr. Collado will “sculpt” this resin to match your surrounding teeth, and harden it with a special UV light to provide you with a more attractive smile. Shaping and contouring are typically used alongside bonding, and during this treatment your teeth are shaped so that they have a more attractive and pleasing appearance.

Invisalign

Wish you had a way to discreetly correct crooked or gapped teeth? Look no further! Millions of people have used these clear aligners to achieve the straight, beautiful teeth they’ve always wanted. And the best part is no one will even know you’re wearing them! Call us today to learn more about how Invisalign can create incredible results for your smile.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Invisalign uses special, clear plastic aligners to shift your teeth without the use of highly visible traditional braces.

First, you’ll come in for an appointment at Carmel Mountain Dental Care and one of our highly-skilled dentists will examine your teeth. We will take impressions and images, and work closely with Invisalign to develop your custom treatment plan.

In a few weeks, your first set of aligners will be sent to our office. You’ll wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, and switch them out for a new set about every 2 weeks. Treatment usually takes about 20-24 sets of aligners, so most patients are finished with Invisalign in under a year, though this may vary depending on your case.

The Benefits Of Invisalign

  • Removable – Invisalign can be removed to eat, play sports, brush, and floss, which makes it a much more convenient treatment than traditional braces.
  • Invisible – Invisalign is virtually invisible when you’re wearing your aligners, and does not affect your speech.
  • Comfortable – There are no uncomfortable wires or brackets to poke your mouth, and Invisalign exerts much more even, gentle pressure than braces.

Cosmetic Makeovers

A cosmetic makeover is a comprehensive, custom-tailored treatment plan that allows you to achieve your smile goals. Using a series of cosmetic and restorative treatments, like dental implants and crowns, Dr. Collado can create a customized treatment plan and help you get the smile that you have always wanted.

No matter what condition your teeth may be in, we can design a plan that fits your needs and your budget. With a cosmetic makeover, you can finally feel more confident about your smile, and eliminate discomfort and embarrassment once and for all.
