Hello San Diego friends of Marcos Ortega DDS! When you think about getting into shape, your teeth are probably not the first body parts that come to mind. But your San Diego dentist may be able to improve your smile with bonding and enamel shaping, and you won’t even have to join a San Diego gym!
I’m Dr. Marcos Ortega, an experienced San Diego general and cosmetic dentist, and today on my dental blog I want to explain a little more about these relatively conservative cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve your smile without major remodeling.
Bonding is a great way to improve the appearance of teeth that are cracked, stained, broken, chipped, or have large spaces between them. When teeth are bonded, your San Diego dentist applies tooth-colored materials, and “bonds” them to the tooth surface.
Usually used in conjunction with bonding, enamel shaping is the process of modifying teeth by contouring or removing enamel. Something my San Diego area patients love about enamel shaping is that it’s quick, painless, and the often dramatic results are immediate.
If you are looking for quality, affordable San Diego dental care, give us a call at 619-717-8459. Our very comfortable and friendly dental team would be happy to answer any questions you have about any of our cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and tooth whitening. We would love to explain the latest advances in dental crowns, teeth whitening, and sedation dentistry and let you see our gallery of before and after photos of smile makeovers.
If it has been a while since you have treated your teeth to a deep cleaning, call today to book an appointment with the most gentle yet thorough dental hygienists in San Diego!
