Through the use of one or more dental procedures, our cosmetic dentist in Santa Cruz can completely transform your smile and the confidence you have in yourself and your appearance. Increasing your self-confidence can help you feel more comfortable in your skin, and it can lead to positive changes in your personal and professional relationships.

Today, let’s look at five of the most commonly reported benefits of a smile makeover:

Better overall oral health

Our Scotts Valley cosmetic dentist office offers procedures that can address several dental issues that may be causing you to be embarrassed about your smile and could be negatively impacting your self-esteem. Let’s look at one:

Mildly crooked teeth — While this may seem like an insignificant issue, crooked teeth make it difficult for a toothbrush or floss to reach between your teeth. Contrary to popular belief, mildly crooked teeth don’t always require the use of traditional metal braces to straighten. While our cosmetic dentist office near Los Gatos offers Invisalign — a comfortable, effective alternative to traditional metal braces — sometimes minor crookedness can be addressed with porcelain veneers, which we also specialize in.

Veneers are wafer-thin coverings that our dentist adheres to the surface of teeth. Veneers can correct issues like discoloration, and they can cover cracks and chips in teeth. But they can also be used to help with the appearance of slightly cooked teeth, making them appear straighter.

A whiter smile

One of our most requested cosmetic procedures is professional teeth whitening. Teeth can become discolored or dingy over time because of age, certain medications and food and beverages we enjoy, such as coffee, tea, red wine, dark sodas, chocolate, dark berries and tomato sauces.

While it’s tempting and convenient to choose an over-the-counter whitening treatment, you will likely be disappointed with the results. The whitening power of these kits does not come close to what you will experience through our in-office or take-home whitening solutions. We offer Zoom! Whitening, which will consistently whiten your teeth within an hour and Sensational Smile, which is proven to whiten teeth by 2-5 shades. Unlike over-the-counter whitening kits, professional whitening does not result in sensitive teeth or gums.

Confidence boost

Whether it’s because of missing or imperfect teeth, you may hide your smile when you’re happy and laughing or posing for a picture. Our Scotts Valley cosmetic dentist has a solution for anything that’s bothering you about your smile. Dental implants are a revolutionary way to replace missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted. Implants are the closest the dental world has ever come to being able to replace missing teeth with natural teeth.

Having confidence will make you smile more, and it will make you more confident in yourself. It’s amazing the improvements that can happen in a person’s life with just a little confidence boost. Imagine how much better you’d feel about yourself with a perfect, white and bright Hollywood smile. The sky would be the limit!


Whatever is disappointing you about your smile, we have a procedure to address it. Whether you need one cosmetic procedure or a combination of two, three or more, we can get started on turning your frown upside down as soon as possible.
