how cosmetic dentistry can improve your looksScotts Valley and Santa Cruz, CA

Your smile is a key component of your first impression so it should come as no surprise that people who look to improve their appearance continue to turn to cosmetic dentistry in Scotts Valley. A specialization of dental science focusing on aesthetic issues with the teeth and mouth, cosmetic dentistry is a rapidly advancing field that uses state-of-the-art tools and techniques to produce beautiful and functional results.

At Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry, our Scotts Valley cosmetic dentists, Drs. Ariana and Max Ebrahimian remain up to speed on the latest techniques thanks to their continuing education at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, which is considered the finest post-graduate dental institution in the world.

Let’s learn more about how specific cosmetic dental treatments can improve your looks:

  • Dental Bonding: One of the most economical and versatile procedures available in cosmetic dentistry, a bonding treatment can fill an unwanted gap between teeth, or restore the appearance of teeth that are slightly broken, fragmented, cracked, or chipped. In most cases, a dental bonding treatment can be completed in a single appointment.
  • Dental Implants: A dental implant is installed to replace a lost tooth, and is the only tooth replacement currently available in dentistry that also replaces the missing tooth root—providing continuous stimulation of the jawbone and safeguarding against bone deterioration as a long-term consequence of tooth loss. A dental implant procedure is one of the most complicated in cosmetic dentistry. At Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry, our Santa Cruz implant dentists have the experience in both cosmetic dentistry and oral surgery that are ideal to perform an implant procedure with a successful outcome.
  • Teeth Whitening: A popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry, a professional whitening treatment can improve the appearance of your teeth dramatically in as little as an hour. The whitening products used by an experienced cosmetic dentist are of a higher concentration than the whitening agents found in store-bought kits. These whitening remedies also are administered by experienced and professional staff, both to ensure results and minimize enhanced sensitivity in teeth, which is a common side effect of many over-the-counter products.
  • Crowns: A crown is installed to replace the exterior of a badly damaged tooth while preventing total tooth loss. At Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry, your Scotts Valley cosmetic dentists work with metal-free crowns made entirely of dental porcelain, a beautiful, natural-looking material that reflects light in a similar manner to natural tooth enamel. In addition to being ideal for patients with a metal allergy, these metal-free crowns are installed while preserving a greater quantity of natural tooth structure and are bonded directly to teeth.

Remember, no cosmetic dental treatment lasts forever. You can prolong the lifespan of any procedure by maintaining a diligent regimen of oral hygiene that includes daily brushing and flossing and a regular schedule of twice-yearly visits to your dentist for a check-up and professional cleaning.
