A dental veneers is a common cosmetic dentistry treatment that can improve the appearance of a tooth. Porcelain veneers also improve your dental health. They are thin, custom made shells that cover your natural tooth to improve its appearance. As a permanent cosmetic treatment, dentists use them to straighten, reshape, and brighten teeth. They can help align teeth and improve your bite. To learn more about the dental veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.
No-Prep Dental Veneers
Similar to porcelain veneers, no-prep dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic that your dentist will adhere to the surface of the tooth. The difference is the tooth will not require removal of any healthy tooth structure. They provide the same beautiful results that porcelain veneers offer with little tooth preparation. No-prep dental veneers can be easily replaced but will last for many year will proper care. To learn more about benefits of Durathin dental veneers, see No-Prep Veneers.
Clear aligners have become so popular due to their ease of use. Invisalign is the original clear aligner system for straightening crooked teeth and addressing bite issues like underbite and overbite. They are more discreet compared to other orthodontic treatments like metal braces. You must wear these clear aligners for 20-22 hours a day. However, you can remove them to eat and do your oral health care routines. You will need to switch out your Invisalign aligners every week to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. To learn more about the benefits of this clear aligner system, see Invisalign.
Missing teeth create aesthetic issues and oral health issues. Dental implants provide you with the most natural tooth replacement option. It is the only solution that will replace teeth at the root and prevent bone loss in the jaw. Bone loss in the jaw will cause an aged appearance and many other cosmetic issues. Choosing dental implants will create a beautiful smile that will last for a lifetime. To learn more about the dental implant process, see Dental Implants.
The most economical way to fix a tooth is with tooth bonding. Dentists use this treatment to address minor cosmetic concerns such as teeth that are misshapen, chipped, or discolored. It is a simple procedure that involves placing a composite resin material directly on the tooth and shaping it by hand to hide the imperfections. It can improve the appearance of your smile in just a single visit. To learn more about the benefits of dental bonding, see Tooth Bonding.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
To learn more about cosmetic dentistry, please read through our frequently asked questions. These are answers to common questions we often get asked. If you have additional questions or concerns, please reach out to Oxnard, CA dentist office.
What’s the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure?
Tooth whitening is the most common cosmetic dentistry treatment. Many of us are coffee drinkers or just have teeth discolored by age. It’s natural to want a whiter smile. Our office offers take-home and in-office whitening treatments to meet your needs. If your teeth don’t respond to traditional whitening techniques, we can discuss solutions like porcelain veneers and dental bonding.
Does cosmetic dentistry only have aesthetic value?
It’s a common thought that cosmetic dentistry is only for appearances. But many cosmetic issues patients face have roots in things that impact their oral health. Crooked teeth, for example, are also harder to clean. If you have crooked teeth, you’re more likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease issues. Plaque and tartar build up in these hard-to-reach areas. Treating your crooked teeth also helps out your oral health.
Is cosmetic dentistry safe?
Yes, cosmetic dentistry procedures are safe. We also do a thorough evaluation before performing any services at all. We’ll discuss your medical history and do a full oral exam to ensure that any of the procedures done are completely safe for your needs.
How can cosmetic dentistry improve my smile?
Cosmetic dentistry not only makes your smile look better but the overall function as well. When you have an even, balanced bite, the jaws and muscles of the mouth are in harmony. Depending on your condition, it can even help you speak properly or be able to eat more easily. Since each person is unique, there’s no telling all of the benefits that cosmetic dentistry can provide you.
Can a cosmetic dentist do implants?
Yes, Dr. Haddad is trained to perform the dental implant procedure. Most cosmetic dentists also have implant training. Missing teeth are a big problem that patients face, both cosmetically and functionally. Dr. Haddad has advanced training in the structures of the jaw and gums, making her an ideal candidate to perform the dental implant procedure.
What’s the best cosmetic dentistry solution for me?
Each person is unique, and so is their smile. During your cosmetic consultation, we talk to you about your budget and cosmetic goals, in addition to an oral examination. Together, we’ll be able to determine the best cosmetic treatment options to get you the smile of your dreams.
