Cosmetic dentistry refers to any procedure that helps to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums. In many ways cosmetic dentistry requires an artistic eye which can improved by taking additional post doctorate courses on beauty and cosmetics.

What are common cosmetic dentistry services?
Dental veneers, also called laminates, are thin, porcelain caps that cover the front of a tooth. They are helpful if your tooth is stained, chipped, or if you want to minimize the appearance of gaps between your teeth. They look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of dental issues, such as: teeth that are stained and can’t be whitened by bleaching, chipped or worn teeth.
In a bonding procedure, is basically using tooth colored filling materials to recreate missing tooth structure due to either decay, fracture or general wear. The composite materials come in various shades, so we can match it appropriately to your natural tooth shade.
Crowns can restore the strength and integrity of a tooth that is damaged, cracked, or decaying. Crowns are fixed to the top of your tooth, which prevents the tooth and its roots from further damage or deterioration. A crown is essentially a “hat” or “cap” that covers your tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.
All effective teeth whitening uses some concentration of peroxide to remove any internal stains from your teeth. Our teeth are made up of tiny pores which can stain over time from food and drinks. The Hydrogen Peroxide gel will penetrate those pores and take out any stains it can reach. Unlike at-home teeth whitening kits, dental-supervised whitening procedures offer more dramatic results in a shorter amount of time. Dr. Hsu can recommend the best option for you and create custom whitening trays to fit your teeth.
Invisalign® has quickly become the mainstream way to straighten your teeth. Not only are you able to avoid the dreaded metal mouth with traditional braces, but treatment times tend to be shorter and there are less variables to deal with. Best part is still being able to achieve superior smile esthetics without years of self-conscious moments with braces.
