Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry deals with improving the aesthetics of the entire dental setup. A cosmetic dentist is dedicated towards performing procedures such as teeth whitening, removal of plaque and tartar, installing veneers, crowns and bridges, reshaping the teeth which have undergone any damage due to external trauma, restoring the gums to their original shape, etc. These are some of the cosmetic dental procedures that we offer, which are coupled with state of the art facilities and highly trained dentists.

Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings or white fillings are usually made up of composites. They can be made to closely match the color of the tooth, making them virtually undetectable. They can be used to fill cavities and repair cracks and fractures as well. When a cavity is being filled, first, the decay has to be removed and the tooth has to be disinfected. The dentist may also apply some medication on to the cavity, which helps prevent further infections. The filling will be applied and then, shaped according to the contour of the tooth. They are pretty durable and long-lasting. Matching them with the color and texture of the enamel gives them an added advantage over their alternatives, such as metal fillings.

We offer several cosmetic solutions to our patients. Here are a few:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth have a tendency to lose their natural color during the course of time. This discoloration is due to the penetration of substances into the enamel of the teeth. These substances can be from certain foods and beverages that you consume, such as coffee, soda, tea, etc. Teeth whitening is the most popular type of dental cosmetic procedure. Dr. Yankie suggests that this procedure will help to get rid of staining and discoloration from the teeth. Teeth whitening will help patients to attain the natural glow of their teeth with the help our experts. We offer our patients with the following practices:

Start Pure Night and Day Teeth Whitening Pens

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and Bridges are restorative dental appliances which are used to improve both the functionality and aesthetics of the teeth. Crowns are cap-like structures which cover a tooth entirely. They are mainly used to hold a damaged tooth intact and to improve its appearance. A bridge is used to bridge the gap between two teeth, just as the name suggests. It is essentially an artificial tooth which is used to replace a missing natural tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

The Mill Valley dentist, Dr. Yankie, offers her patients with the opportunity to replace their broken or chipped teeth with enamel mimicking appliances such as Veneers. The shell-like texture of this appliance will camouflage the color of the teeth. It offers patients with a completely new alternative to extractions where the patient may have to get rid of the teeth. Dental Veneers can be developed in order to correctly fit the individual’s teeth.

An instant solution to a new smile, porcelain veneers can cover a single tooth or a set of teeth. This efficient and proven procedure is widely sought after for many reasons.

  • Porcelain veneers resolve the problems of malocclusion.
  • They remove unnecessary gaps between the teeth resulting in a perfect smile.
