Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for those who have extremely blemished teeth, it is for anyone who isn’t happy with their smile. Even those with light discoloration, small chips, or any other slight imperfection can still benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Chung and his team want to give those who live in the Poway, CA area the smile they have always dreamed of, and with his extensive training and experience, you can be sure you are getting the best care.

Small Flaws and Cosmetic Dentistry  

  • Discoloration – One of the most common complaints that people have with their teeth is that they aren’t white enough. It also happens to be one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to brighten up your smile. Our in-office teeth whitening procedure is the fastest and most effective way to get rid of stubborn stains and return your teeth back to the whiteness level you want.
  • Chips and Cracks – Small chips and cracks in your teeth may not seem like a big problem but they can still make it uncomfortable to smile and laugh in front of other people. By simply attaching a porcelain veneer to the front of your tooth you can hide most cosmetic defects. Veneers also don’t require much drilling in order to be placed, leaving the tooth underneath in good shape. 
  • Misshapen and Bumpy – If your teeth are oddly shaped, chipped, crowding, or have a bumpy texture, simply having them drilled down and reshaped can make them more cohesive with the rest of your teeth without the need for veneers or crowns. 
  • Gaps and Fillings – Composite bonding and fillings are a great way to cover imperfections in your teeth while still maintaining a natural look. Composite bonding fills gaps and cracks in your teeth with enamel colored material. Fillings can also now be done with that same material so you won’t have to be self-conscious of the metallic material used before.
