Cosmetic dentistry at Korel Family Dentistry in El Cajon can create the bright natural looking smile you deserve. Whether you are interested in a complete smile design, restoring chipped teeth or want to whiten your teeth, we can improve your smile. Cosmetic Dentistry is composed of several different types of dental procedures.
Porcelain Veneers – Fingernail-thin shells are adhered to the front surface of the tooth. Veneers can fix several aesthetic problems with just one treatment.
Whitening – There are at home whitening kits and in office whitening treatments. At-home bleaching kits use carbamide peroxide solutions to oxidize and bleach your teeth. In-office bleaching (also called chair side, light-activated or one-hour bleaching) uses hydrogen peroxide gels and a heat or light source; these treatments lighten your teeth by six to eight shades in one to three visits, and sometimes less.
Bonding – With the use of bonding, gaps, chips, broken teeth, spots and discoloration can all be repaired with bonding. You can regain your smile and confidence.
Crowns – A perfectly fitted restoration that repairs and strengthens a tooth that has fractured has a large cavity, an old filling that has failed, or has had root canal therapy. Unlike an inlay or onlay, a crown completely covers the tooth.
Pinhole Surgical Technique – The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is incision and suture free.
