Cosmetic Dentistry Services in Los Altos, CA by Dr. Ken Schweifler
Our cosmetic dentistry services provide a variety of treatments to improve the look of your smile. These treatments may include the following.
Professional Teeth Whitening
A non-invasive, relatively inexpensive way to whiten your teeth and makeover your smile. We take impressions (molds) of your teeth to create custom-fitting plastic bleaching trays. They will fit snugly over your teeth and hold the whitening material in place. You can perform the bleaching conveniently at home over the course of 1-2 weeks. A dental professional provides Professional teeth whitening in-office, and can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Learn more about professional teeth whitening.
White Dental Fillings
White fillings are just like the traditional amalgam fillings, but they’re made of a different material. Traditional amalgam fillings contain mercury and other metals such as silver, copper, and tin. Simply replacing a single silver filling or metal crown with a tooth-colored one provides an instant smile makeover. It also offers superior protection against decay. We match our white composite fillings to surrounding tooth structure to create a seamless fit.
Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that gently move teeth to their desired positions. We can use this treatment on adults and teens who have a mild to moderate degree of tooth misalignment. Invisalign slowly moves teeth into the right position without wires or brackets, and the result is a straight, beautiful smile. Learn more about Invisalign.
Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that your dentist bonds to the front of the teeth to change their shape, size, length or color. We provide custom high-quality ceramic restorations that can transform a patient’s smile and overall look with a durable result. Learn more about porcelain veneers.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that repairs a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth. The dentist will attach a composite resin to the tooth to shape to restore it. Learn more about tooth bonding.
