Tips About Cosmetic Dentistry In San Diego, California

Cosmetic Dentistry will help people to have better smile. At some point in our life we have all been afraid of the dentist. But, later in life we realize that dentists are not scary as we thought. They do so many good things for us: they take care about our teeth and the health of them, too. But, dentists can do something more for us: they can beautify our smile. With cosmetic dentistry we all can have a smile like some famous people.

Do I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

First of all, let me explain what cosmetic dentistry is. Cosmetic dentistry is a term used to describe any kind of dental work that improves the appearance of someone’s teeth. So, the answer to the previous question is very individual. You have to see your overall dental health, size, shape, whiteness etc. If you’re not happy with how your teeth look, you should pay a visit to Dr. Ali Shojania, specialist in this area. Dr. Ali Shojania can be considered to be the best cosmetic dentist in San Diego, California.

Cosmetic Dentistry Is Not Just Whitening

People usually think that whitening is the only good thing they can do for their teeth. Although that’s not completely true, people usually come to a dentist office looking for this service. Whitening can be very dangerous for your teeth, but you should know few things before you decide to take this step. First of all, be aware that whitening won’t be possible if your teeth aren’t completely healthy. It’s recommended to solve any cavity issues you may have, and then start with the whitening procedure. Also, after the process you’ll experience short term increased sensitivity, so it would be wise not to use gel-filled trays during that period. If you’re pregnant or nursing, please reconsider whitening because it’s usually not recommended in those situations.

I’m Missing A Tooth

Cosmetic dentistry can solve empty areas left by missing teeth. The solution for this is called dental bridge (also known as false teeth). If you’re living in San Diego, California and having an issue like this, feel free to go to Dr. Ali Shojania.  False teeth are being held by two porcelain crowns. If you’re having more than one empty spot waiting for a false tooth, that can also be solved with a fixed bridge. One tip: ask your dentist from what material will your teeth be done. Some dental fillings are done entirely of porcelain, or it can have some ‘’additives’’ like gold or amalgam.

I’m Desperate… I Don’t Know What To Do With My Teeth…

There’s no reason to be desperate about your teeth, because even the worst cases have a solution. Discolored teeth without a proper alignment represent a problem to some people. Discolored teeth are a result of some taken medications or your everyday dietary habits. Here you need to pay attention – some discolored teeth can be whitened. If that’s the case with you, you need aforementioned whitening. If your teeth are so damaged that they can’t be whitened, then you should consider getting porcelain veneers. Veneers solve multiple problems:

  • discolored teeth that are being covered with a nice white layer
  • a natural space between the teeth is no longer noticeable after getting veneers
  • your teeth will be perfectly aligned

One more (important) thing you should know – veneers don’t do any damage to your healthy teeth.
