White and Dr. David Yongue, provide life-like dental restorations and tooth-colored prosthetics to naturally and beautifully restore your smile.
Treatments for Cosmetic Smile Improvements
There are many ways to achieve a white and healthy smile, depending on what issues you may be facing. Cosmetic dentistry provides solutions for a number of common dental concerns, such as cracked teeth, stained enamel, tooth decay, or even lost teeth. Drs. White and Yongue provide cosmetic dental solutions that include:
Crowns – A dental crown covers the top part of your tooth that is visible above the gum line so your smile looks natural and damage-free. Crowns can help replace decayed dental enamel and strengthen teeth that have been weakened by bacteria and acid.
Bonding – The cosmetic dental bonding process involves the application and shaping of a tooth-colored composite material that hardens to mimic real dental enamel. Bonding can be used to replace chipped enamel or smooth cracks on teeth. If you have teeth that are slightly gapped, bonding can also be used to change the size of teeth and close unattractive spaces.
Teeth Whitening – One of the easiest ways to get a more beautiful smile is professional teeth bleaching treatment. Our Berkeley cosmetic dentists offer customized, at-home whitening kits with trays that are shaped to comfortably fit your smile. Your course of whitening treatment depends on the amount of staining you are experiencing. Light stains may only take a few days to correct, where darker discoloration would require a more comprehensive treatment course. Our teeth bleaching system deliver stunningly whiter smiles.
Fixed Bridges – When you have a missing tooth, or teeth, dental bridges can close the gap in your smile and are firmly bonded in-place -- no inconvenient removable restorations needed. Our dentists can provide traditional, three unit bridges for one missing tooth, or can make longer restorations for bigger groups of tooth loss.
Composite Fillings – Silver metal fillings leave an obvious dark spot on teeth, but composite fillings are made from tooth-colored resin. With composite fillings for cosmetic and restorative treatment of cavities, no one will be able to tell that your smile was treated.
Natural-Looking and Durable Cosmetic Dentistry in Berkeley
When you need a dental prosthetic to repair teeth, such as a crown or bridge, ensuring that your new tooth matches your natural teeth is an important part of achieving an ideal cosmetic restoration. To support natural results, Drs. White and Yongue utilize tooth-colored porcelain and ultra-strong, life-like zirconia to treat your smile. Our cosmetic dental restorations with these materials look as natural as possible and are strong enough to support long-lasting results.
