San Carlos, CA
Here at Frank Hsu, D.D.S. in San Carlos, CA we want all of our patient’s to feel confident about their smile. It’s hard to feel confident when you don’t trust the aesthetic of your smile. Our teeth do a lot for us and have to last us a long time. As a result, we sometimes have to give our teeth some extra help to keep them looking great and lasting for many years to come – this is where cosmetic dentistry comes in. Cosmetic dentistry can give your smile what they need to look and feel great for years to come. So, what are some of our cosmetic dental options? We offer:
One of the most popular cosmetic dental options available today is teeth whitening. You have probably noticed someone’s beautifully white smile and wondered, “How do I get my teeth to be that white?” The answer is professional teeth whitening here at Frank Hsu, D.D.S.! We can whiten your teeth professionally and give you a smile you have always wanted.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are messy and often don’t work as advertised. The biggest challenge that OTC whitening products face is they cannot contain significant concentrations of teeth whitening agents because that could pose a risk to the health of users who are not under professional supervision. Because we are dental professionals, we can administer the appropriate level of the whitening agent to get your teeth as white as you would like, and because we are there to supervise the process, it’s safe!
When teeth are chipped or cracked, we are often able to repair them quickly, effectively, and permanently with cosmetic bonding. For this procedure, we use composite resin, which is the same tooth-colored material that we use to produce tooth-colored fillings. We match the color of the composite resin to your teeth so that no one will be able to tell that you have had work done on your teeth.
Veneers are a great way to give your smile a total overhaul. We can fix a wide variety of cosmetic issues with veneers because they are the most powerful cosmetic dental option we have available to us. Using veneers, we can fix:
|Teeth that are too far apart
|Teeth that are too crowded
|Teeth that are too large or small
As you can see, veneers are a very powerful cosmetic dental option!
Having braces as a kid or teen is bad enough, but it can be particularly difficult to have braces when you are an adult. Fortunately, we offer Invisalign to all of our patients so that they don’t have to deal with bulky braces ever again. Invisalign offers our patients a series of clear plastic trays that they wear over their teeth. These trays are practically invisible and can treat orthodontic cases much faster than traditional braces.
