Sometimes improving your day is as simple as putting a smile on your face. Of course, if you don’t like the way your teeth look, you may be too self-conscious to open your lips for a full-on smile. Dr. Blackburn is a cosmetic dentist in Los Alamitos, CA, that offers numerous ways to improve the look of your teeth while helping you prevent cavities, gum disease, and other health issues that may be linked to your cosmetic goals. Once you are happy with the way your teeth look, turning your day around can be as simple as turning your frown upside down.
At Volterra Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening services that can drastically improve the brightness after one hour of in-office treatment. We also offer porcelain veneers and dental crowns to repair and preserve chipped or cracked teeth and hide stubborn stains that won’t respond to teeth whitening. For patients with fragile teeth, these restorations can add durability and help prevent tooth loss. In some cases, they can last a lifetime, so long as you follow a good oral hygiene routine.
Dr. Blackburn can help patients with missing teeth improve the structure of their face and keep teeth from shifting using dental implants or bridges. Dental implants can also prevent bone loss and give patients full functionality so they can speak clearly and eat without adding pressure to their remaining teeth.
Even adult patients with crowded or crooked teeth can improve the look of their teeth using Invisalign. You will wear a series of clear, plastic aligners that can hide in plain sight during the treatment. The oral appliances are removable for an easy cleaning routine that doesn’t have to mean giving up the foods you enjoy or increasing your risk for cavities.
Straightening your teeth and bite alignment can give you a more attractive smile and a fuller face, but it can also help clear your airway by improving your resting oral posture, which can help with proper chewing and swallowing and help keep your airway open for better nighttime breathing. It also makes brushing your teeth and flossing a lot easier, so you can prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
Cosmetic dentistry requires specialized training and individualized care for patients. Once we have evaluated your mouth, our team will educate you on the advantages and disadvantages of all your options and help you make a choice you are comfortable with while still achieving your aesthetic goals. Oral health and a beautiful smile go hand in hand, and our team will work with you to give your mouth a makeover.
