Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on your teeth’s appearance, helping you attain the perfect smile you’ve been looking for. Cosmetic procedures can also improve the function of your teeth, but Dr. Arora performs these treatments with a special sensitivity to how the final result will look. You and Dr. Arora work together to develop a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan based on your goals.

Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?

If you’re displeased with how your teeth and smile look, there’s probably a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help you. With his expertise, Dr. Arora is able to fix teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Crowded or uneven
  • Decayed
  • Gapped or crooked
  • Chipped or broken
  • Missing

If you’re concerned about your appearance as the result of any of these dental problems, Dr. Arora can help you achieve the strong, healthy smile you’ve been looking for, and keep it for the long term so you’re happy with how your teeth look and feel.

Which cosmetic dentistry treatments are available?

Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, no matter how significant your dental problem is, Dr. Arora provides a state-of-the-art treatment that can have your teeth looking better than ever. Even if your teeth are already in good condition, cosmetic dentistry gives them an added boost. Treatments available in both Dr. Arora’s Belmont and Menlo Park offices include:

Implants

Dental implants are an aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking (and feeling) way to replace a missing tooth. Implants involve installing a metal root in your jawbone and then attaching an artificial tooth, which is designed to blend in with the rest of your teeth.

Composite fillings

Unlike gold or silver, composite materials are the same color as teeth and provide a discreet, durable solution for filling cavities if you’d prefer no one be able to know you have a filling.

Porcelain crowns

If you have a significantly damaged tooth, Dr. Arora can fit a porcelain crown over it that looks like natural enamel and acts just like a healthy tooth.

Teeth whitening

Through in-office laser treatment, as well as professional-grade at-home teeth whitening kits customized to fit your mouth and dispensed with Dr. Arora’s guidance, you can make your discolored teeth several shades brighter.

Porcelain veneers

Thin slices of porcelain can replace worn away, discolored enamel and are resistant to stains.
