A beautiful smile is something you wear every day and it’s often what people remember you by. If you want to look your absolute best, cosmetic dental treatments at Won Sung, DDS, can leave you with a stunning smile that exceeds your expectations.
If you aren’t familiar with all the options available for improving your smile, you may feel that cosmetic dentistry is out of your reach. The truth is that dental materials and technology have improved so dramatically that we’re now able to offer simple, cost-effective procedures to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Whether you’re looking for a quick fix for stained teeth or a complete smile makeover, we offer numerous services that will improve the health and beauty of your smile.
Fillings are an essential dental treatment to repair teeth damaged by decay. Until recently, we had few options for materials that could create a strong and durable filling. We had to rely on what was available, which was functional, but not necessarily developed for esthetics.
Today, we use a tooth-colored composite resin material that looks much more like natural dental enamel than older filling material. Now when we create a filling, we can match the shade of the material to your own tooth color. Once Dr. Sung expertly places and shapes your new filling, your tooth will be healthier and look better than when we started!
Since the composite material looks so natural, we can also use it to correct aesthetic problems like chips, cracks, tooth staining, and gaps between teeth. This process is called dental bonding and is a cost-effective alternative to treatments like veneers or crowns.
Natural-Looking Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are made of thin pieces of ceramic, which are secured to the front surface of upper teeth, and in some cases, lower teeth. Veneers are designed to enhance your smile and are a popular cosmetic option because they’re easy to apply and can address a variety of aesthetic flaws.
Just think – you no longer have to deal with teeth that are stained, chipped, crooked, or have wide spaces in between them! Beautiful porcelain veneers cover your teeth to easily correct these flaws so that you can smile confidently again.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Many factors contribute to teeth staining. From eating berries to drinking lots of coffee, tea, red wine – and using tobacco products – it's easy to leave behind stains that are difficult to remove. Also, poor oral hygiene, genetic factors, aging, and even certain medications can dull the natural brightness of your teeth.
At Won Sung, DDS, we offer convenient Opalescence take-home whitening kits, which we’ve found to be the most effective option for brightening your smile. We take impressions of your teeth to customize your whitening trays, making sure they fit perfectly and cover all surfaces evenly.
Then we assemble your customized kit, which includes a sensitivity-reducing whitening gel, a case with two sets of custom trays (just in case you lose one!), a travel bag, and syringes that contain your whitening gel. Simply wear the trays for 3 to 4 hours per day for about two weeks, and you’ll see a dramatic improvement in the whiteness of your smile. With occasional touchups, you can continue to enjoy a bright, white smile.
