Cosmetic Dentistry

Many people think that cosmetic dentistry is only for movie stars. It’s probably too time-consuming or expensive for the average person, right? Wrong!

Modern dentistry offers so many solutions for creating beautiful smiles, and it may not take as long or be as expensive as you think.

Dr. Erickson believes that everyone should enjoy a radiant and beautiful smile. At Citrus Grove Dentistry, we offer several cosmetic dental treatments that are affordable and can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Quick Solutions with Cosmetic Bonding

A quick and inexpensive way to eliminate small cosmetic concerns is with dental bonding. This procedure uses the same material as dental fillings, and we can close spaces between teeth, reshape a tooth, or cover cracks or discoloration on your teeth. Composite is custom blended to match your teeth and deliver a flawless finish.

Dental Veneers Provide a “Hollywood” Smile

Dental veneers are very thin layers of ceramic porcelain that fit over your teeth and cover imperfections, such as:

  • Size discrepancies
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Discoloration or stains
  • Slight misalignment concerns
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth

Dr. Erickson may recommend one or two veneers to repair individual teeth, or six to eight to redesign your smile completely. Porcelain veneers are durable, stain-resistant, and can change the shape and size of your teeth to create the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.

Porcelain Crowns Restore Beauty and Function

Tooth crowns can eliminate a lot of the same concerns as veneers; however, the crown fits over your entire tooth instead of just covering the front surface. If you are considering a full smile makeover, your cosmetic dentist in Citrus Heights may recommend a combination of porcelain crowns and veneers to complete your beautiful smile.

Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile

If your teeth are looking dull or yellowed, they might just need a quick boost. Citrus Grove Dentistry offers take-home whitening trays so you can brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home whenever it is most convenient for you.

We take impressions of your teeth that we use to create your custom trays and send you home with a high-strength bleaching gel. You’ll use the trays once a day for 30 minutes to whiten your teeth, and it typically takes two weeks to achieve your desired results.
