Cosmetic Dentistry in San Jose, CA
If you feel dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, you are not alone! Many of our patients have great oral health but would like to improve the appearance of their smiles so they have improved self-confidence in their appearance.
Dr. Victor Woodlief offers a wide variety of cosmetic services, ranging from simple treatments to full smile makeovers. People who feel great about the way their teeth look are more likely to make a great first impression in just about any social or professional situation.
Professional Teeth Whitening
After a whitening consultation with Dr. Woodlief, he will recommend the type of whitening system that will give you the best results based on your oral health, your level of staining, and whether or not you have gum recession, which can cause sensitivity.
Next, one of our assistants will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth so that we can create custom teeth whitening trays that fit your teeth snugly, holding the whitening gel on the surface of your teeth.
We measure results by taking a before-and-after shade. It is not always easy to monitor whitening progress without this step because it happens gradually. Many patients are surprised to see how many shades their teeth improved.
When we send your take-home teeth whitening system with you, you will have enough gel for your initial treatment. If you require touch-ups in the future, you can use the same whitening trays and purchase additional gel from our office.
Tooth-Colored Restorations and Veneers
The goal of a restoration, such as a filling or crown, is to protect and stabilize your tooth. Dr. Woodlief also believes in creating restorations that do not look noticeable when you smile.
Custom restorations fit and function comfortably and enhance the beauty of your smile. We can replace old metal-based restorations with durable composite and porcelain for improved esthetics. We take a custom shade of your teeth to ensure a good match.
Repairing small chips or tooth irregularities with cosmetic dental bonding is an affordable and non-invasive treatment we can often complete in one day using highly esthetic composite material.
Porcelain veneers provide dramatic results and can address a number of cosmetic issues including:
- Deep stains
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Worn or damaged teeth
Porcelain veneers can replace one or multiple teeth, giving you a uniform and youthful appearance.
Full Smile Makeovers
Combining multiple cosmetic treatments allows Dr. Woodlief to completely reconstruct smiles that have suffered from trauma, accidents, or extreme wear. He can even rebuild a worn smile that feels sensitive or painful from teeth grinding or poor occlusion (a misaligned bite).
Dr. Woodlief has years of experience and maintains the highest standards for restorative dentistry. He can show you the results you can expect and discuss treatment options that can help you achieve your goals for your oral health.
