Are you embarrassed when you smile and avoid showing your teeth when you speak and laugh? At Michael Giovannini DDS, Inc. in Palmdale, CA, we are dedicated to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams. Here, we’ll discuss the cosmetic dentistry services we offer that can transform your smile.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
First, let’s begin by explaining what cosmetic dentistry is. Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that improves your smile by solving issues that don’t necessarily impact your oral health, but are unsightly and cause you to be self conscious. For example, there is cosmetic dentistry treatment for a number of issues such as teeth that are stained, chipped, broken, discolored, misaligned, misshapen, or gapped. We are proud to offer both dental veneers and teeth whitening to our patients.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin covers for your teeth which are custom made so they match your natural teeth exactly in color, size, and shape. They are used to solve issues such as chipped, broken, discolored, worn down, or misaligned teeth. Dental veneers are made out of porcelain which is durable and stain resident and can be made in any shade of white so they can blend in with your natural teeth. You care for dental veneers in the same way you care for your natural teeth and last between 10 and 20 years. The process of getting dental veneers starts with shaving off a tiny bit of your enamel so that the veneer can fit on top. Then, Dr. Giovanni will take impressions of your teeth that need veneers and send them to a dental lab which will create your custom veneers. Once the veneers are ready, we’ll bind them to your teeth and you’ll walk out of our office with a brand new smile.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is the process by which we use a bleaching agent to make your teeth whiter and brighter. We are happy to offer our patients a number of different teeth whitening options. First is KöR deep bleaching, a technique that can brighten your smile by up to 16 shades through a combination of at-home and in-office whitening procedures. The process begins with two weeks of whitening your teeth at home by wearing custom-made trays lined with KöR whitening gel while you sleep for 6 or more hours. After the two weeks, you’ll come in for a final treatment that will seal in your results. Next, we also offer one-visit whitening. This is our fastest whitening treatment and in just one appointment we’ll apply a whitening agent that will give you a brighter smile in an hour’s time. If you need more flexibility in your whitening schedule, we also offer take-home whitening kits that you can do in the comfort of your own home. We offer both custom trays and one-size trays which allow patients to whiten their teeth no matter their budget.
