Del Mar Dentist Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures - Dentist: Curtis Chan DDS

Porcelain or Dental Veneers

We offer dental veneers at our San Diego, California practice. The gems of cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers, or porcelain, veneers can transform many patients' smiles permanently with results that last. The quick and easy process can quickly provide movie star-quality grins! In fact, many celebrities have dental veneers - they aren't necessarily born with those mega-watt smiles. Dental veneers, composed of customized, thin porcelain, slide gently over the teeth, hiding chips, cracks, stains, badly aligned teeth, injuries and additional imperfections that can prevent that picture-perfect smile.

Porcelain or dental veneers are generally fitted in a few visits to our Del Mar, California practice. The first visit is typically a consultation with the San Diego cosmetic dentist, Dr. Chan. During this visit, he will find out the type of improvements that you are looking for and will make certain that dental veneers are right for you. If you decide that dental veneers are the best option to meet your cosmetic dentistry needs, the next step is to have impressions made of your teeth so that the veneers can be customized to match your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Dental Bonding

Crooked, discolored, broken, or misshapen teeth can distract from the beauty of any smile. Bonding is another quick and easy way to restore the aesthetic appearance of your smile. During bonding, Dr. Chan gently applies a thin layer of plastic or resin to the problem teeth then shapes the bonding into a natural shape. In addition to improving the look of a tooth, the bonding can also provide extra strength to the tooth. To learn more about bonding, please contact us today.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Dental Bridges

If you are missing two or more teeth in a row but prefer a discrete and permanent alternative to dentures you may want to consider a bridge. Dental Bridges literally bridge gaps between teeth, improving the overall appearance of your smile and can aid a patient's ability chew properly, speak clearly, and bite down without pain or fear. We offer a variety of bridges, including implant, modern porcelain and implant, so that we have an option for almost everyone. If you are considering replacing missing teeth but are looking for a natural-looking, comfortable way to replace them, contact us today and inquire about bridges.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Dental Porcelain Crowns

The aesthetic beauty of a smile, can be spoiled by just one damaged tooth if it is chipped, cracked, or discolored. Your smile can return to full beauty with a crown that can correct that problem for good. Crowns, often termed caps, are designed to fit neatly over an injured or damaged tooth to hide imperfections as well as provide extra support. If you are ready for a beautiful and uniform smile, contact Dr. Chan today about porcelain crowns.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Tooth-colored Fillings

Have your cavities have been filled with ugly metal fillings, called amalgams? Are you hesitant to smile because of those fillings? If so, tooth-colored fillings could be just the answer for you. White fillings - carefully constructed from resin or porcelain - are bonded to your teeth if the teeth have cavities, or caries. These white fillings provide aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting beauty, and keep your teeth strong and resistant to injury. No one but you and Dr. Chan will know which teeth actually have fillings! To learn more about tooth-colored fillings, please contact us today.
