Having teeth that are chipped, cracked, misaligned, or altogether missing can be a difficult thing. It can cause many to feel self-conscious about their smile and make eating and talking uncomfortable at times.
Dr. Leo Shin understands this. That's why our Newport Beach practice offers an array of cosmetic treatments for a variety of dental issues.
Our expert team strives to make every patient comfortable, and every smile beautiful. The cosmetic enhancements we offer can bring radiance back to your teeth and renew your self-esteem.
Having stained or discolored teeth can be embarrassing, even though it's completely natural. Our teeth, just like our skin, have pores that absorb small amounts of everything that comes into contact with them.
This means that food and drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and blueberries can all stain your teeth over time. Luckily, Dr. Leo Shin offers treatments that make those stains a thing of the past: teeth whitening!
With brands like Zoom!® and Opalescence®, we are able to offer both in-office and at-home whitening treatments to our patients, depending on their needs.
In-office treatments are single visit procedures that significantly whiten your teeth in about an hour Take-home kits allow you to manage your whitening regiment on your own time, and take only a few weeks to make a difference.
Veneers are thin ceramic shells custom-made to match the shape and color of your surrounding teeth. These cosmetics are great for covering chips and cracks, as well as discoloration. Veneers are often the least invasive method for fixing several common cosmetic issues.
After preparing the tooth for enhancement, the veneer is applied to the tooth using dental cement. These can be placed on multiple teeth to complete your smile's appearance and are usually used on the most visible front teeth, commonly known as the "Social Six."
Dental implants are the most effective method of replacing missing teeth. These consist of biocompatible titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jaw. After a healing period where the post bonds to the bone, you are left with a sturdy anchor on which to place a beautiful, life-like crown.
These implants look and feel just like a natural tooth. Furthermore, the implant performs the same function of the root, stimulating the jawbone and preventing accelerated resorption, which is a loss of bone mass commonly associated with missing teeth.
