Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain dental veneers are one of the most effective options in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Barthman offers veneers to individuals from San Mateo and other areas near our Redwood City practice. Dental veneers completely conceal flaws including chips, cracks, and discoloration. Since veneers completely cover the front surface of teeth, they provide a brand new smile – a dream come true for patients with badly damaged teeth. Other benefits of porcelain dental veneers are that they look and feel indistinguishable from natural teeth; are bonded directly to the teeth; do not become discolored; and can last for many years.
If your teeth have become stained by coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco, and other substances, teeth whitening may be all you need for a dramatic smile makeover. Professional tooth bleaching removes deep-set stains from the enamel to rejuvenate your smile. Dr. Barthman provides in-office teeth whitening using the BriteSmile® system. Since BriteSmile® teeth whitening treatment is performed in just one visit to our cosmetic dentistry office, individuals from Menlo Park, Palo Alto, and other areas can receive treatment without having to make repeated trips to Redwood City.
With Invisalign®, patients who have crooked teeth, gaps between the teeth, and other minor orthodontic problems can have their teeth straightened without braces. The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually position the teeth. The aligners are removable, so patients can brush and floss with ease and still enjoy all their favorite foods. The comfortable, virtually invisible aligners make Invisalign® a highly discreet method for realigning the teeth, and a particularly popular option in adult orthodontics.
If you would like to schedule a consultation for Invisalign® or another cosmetic dentistry option, contact our cosmetic dentist near Palo Alto today.
Tooth-colored Porcelain Crowns
Dr. Barthman provides attractive, all-ceramic crowns that blend beautifully with the natural teeth. A tooth that is fractured, chipped, or cracked can be covered with a dental crown, which protects the tooth. A crown can also be used to cover the root of a dental implant or to anchor a dental bridge to the surrounding teeth. Porcelain crowns are an improvement over metal crowns, which do not match the tooth’s original color and may form dark lines around the gums. Modern ceramic crowns do not pose these aesthetic problems and provide, instead, a beautifully restored smile.
Microabrasion - Removal of White Spots
Do you have teeth with white spots, or teeth that are chalky in appearance? This type of superficial discoloration may be caused by several factors, including excessive fluoride consumption, trauma to a baby tooth, childhood illness and oral infections. These types of discoloration can often be corrected easily with microabrasion, a relatively inexpensive cosmetic dentistry option available at our office near San Mateo. The microabrasion technique involves the use of an abrasive substance to buff the tooth and diminish or eliminate discoloration.
