If you find yourself smiling in the mirror, you might be picking out all your imperfections. We’re human, so it’s only natural that we do this from time to time; however, if you have begun to consider ways to improve your smile’s appearance, your Sacramento dentist has several options for getting the smile you want. We want you to be able to look in a mirror and admire your beautiful teeth, not pinpoint the flaws! Here are some ways your cosmetic dentist in Sacramento is here to help! Sacramento Dentist

Orthodontics: Remove The Gaps

Want to remove space between your teeth? Tired of your front teeth overlapping or having a crooked smile? Now you can do something about that when you consider getting braces in Sacramento. You might think about braces and harken back to your good ole school days. While those memories might be pleasant, the memories you have about braces might not be the same. Just relax! Braces have come a long way since you last remember them. The metal has become sleeker, the wires thinner and the brackets are smaller.
Your Sacramento dentist also offers clear ceramic brackets, for those who wish to make their braces a little more conspicuous. Another revolutionary option is lingual braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth so they are less visible to those around you.

Invisalign: Clear Alternative to Metal Braces

If you want a straighter smile but you still can’t bring yourself to get traditional braces, then we have another option for you. While Invisalign is considered one type of braces, they are completely clear. Invisalign in Sacramento consists of a series of clear, removable trays that are customized to fit over your teeth to help move your teeth back to their proper place.
Since they are removable, you don’t have any dietary restrictions and you can take them out to eat and to brush and floss. This treatment lasts anywhere from nine months to about 15 months. If you’re a working professional or an adult considering braces but want to find a subtle way to do it, then Invisalign is the way to go!

Veneers: Update Your Smile from Chips and Cracks

So maybe braces just seem like a lot of expense and time, and you’re just not ready to commit. That’s absolutely fine! There are still options out there for you to get a beautiful smile but without the multiple dental visits and checkups. Dental veneers in Sacramento can get your smile straight in no time. Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are affixed to the front of your tooth, to make your smile appear whiter and straighter.
Your Sacramento dentist will shave down a small part of your natural tooth to make room for the veneer. Then a special light will bond the veneer to the front of your teeth, giving you a beautifully restored smile. Veneers are a great option for those looking for a smile pick-me-up but without all the commitment and hassle.
If any of these options sound appealing, we would love to talk to you more about which treatment plan would fit your smile needs. Call us today at (916) 928-4444.

What We Offer For You

For the Sacramento region, we offer a convenient, well-suited solution for braces. It is called Invisalign. Invisalign transforms the appearance of your teeth quickly and permanently. It is also a great alternative to metal braces, which can have many downfalls. Invisalign is nearly invisible and people will hardly notice them on your teeth. Many patients have given these clean, custom-made, removable aligners a fair chance, and loved the outcome.

Invisalign Advantages

Invisalign offers many advantages for our Sacramento patients. Listed below are four benefits to Invisalign compared to metal braces.
  1. Appearance: Unlike metal braces, which are the first thing that shows up when you smile, Invisalign is clear and hardly noticeable. You will never have to worry about food getting stuck in them because they are removed while eating.
  2. Comfort: Invisalign can be taken out of the mouth when necessary.
  3. Safety: Metal braces contain wire, as well as bits of metal that protrude and can puncture or scratch the inside of the mouth and gums. Invisalign reduces damage to teeth and gums because they are metal less and can be removed.
  4. Duration of Treatment: With Invisalign, your teeth will straighten more quickly. With metal braces, it can take up to 5 years to complete treatment. Invisalign can take 1-1 ½ years to get your teeth straight.
Patients considering Invisalign will undergo planning treatment that is fully computerized. Patients will know exactly what to expect and the duration of using them. Get your beautiful smile today without the sacrifice. Call us to discuss Invisalign or to schedule an appointment with one of our certified dentists.
