Get A Professional Cleaning

Before you start aesthetic treatment, take the time to complete a professional cleaning. Many patients are surprised at just how much better their smiles look and feel after a thorough cleaning. Plaque and tartar can create dark or yellow spots on your smile; an in-office cleaning clears away dental debris and bacteria.

Use Tooth Whitening Formulations

Over-the-counter whitening products, like white strips and toothpastes, can incrementally improve the brightness of your smile. If you want to lighten your dental enamel by several shades, professional whitening treatment—which uses a highly concentrated stain-fighting formulation—delivers same day results. It is possible to whiten teeth by several shades after just one appointment.

Consider Dental Bonding

Bonding is an incredibly versatile treatment that is used in both restorative and cosmetic situations. The bonding process involves our dental team placing custom-shaded composite resin on your existing tooth structure. We shape and refine the resin, and then cure it so that it hardens and bonds to your enamel. With bonding you can close gaps between teeth, resurface unsightly enamel, repair cracks and chips, and even make your smile appear straighter.

As you can see, you don’t need to devote a ton of time or money in order to improve the appearance of your smile. Our Glendale dental team is here to answer any questions that you may have, and to help you get started with a personal consultation. We look forward to speaking with you!
