People choose cosmetic dentistry for different reasons whether to repair an imperfection such as chipped or crooked teeth, to improve their cosmetic denristrysmile in general or to treat an injury. Whatever the reason, our Pasadena, CA dentist, Dr. Jerry Johnson, has experience in restoring smiles to beautiful, natural-looking ones. After a thorough dental examination, he can offer suggestions for each patient’s oral health situation.

More about Cosmetic Dentistry

These types of procedures are generally used to correct discolored, chipped, missing or misshapen teeth. They also can be used to change the shape of teeth overall, whether too long or short or for those that have gaps. Some popular cosmetic procedures performed by our Pasadena dentist, Dr. Johnson, include (and are not limited to):

  • Cosmetic bonding: This uses a tooth-colored material that changes tooth color, closes gaps or fixes other imperfections.
  • Contouring or reshaping: This helps to straighten chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.
  • Whitening or bleaching: This whitens the teeth with this in-office professional service.
  • Veneers: These ultra-thin coverings are placed over the front of the teeth. They can change the color, shape or alignment of the teeth.
  • Cosmetic fillings: These fillings fill spots where decay has been removed and are nearly undetectable in the mouth.
  • Dentures: These replace missing teeth in the mouth and look like natural teeth.

Ultimately, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the smile, no matter the imperfection. A dental examination will take many things into consideration before any procedures are done. Dr. Johnson, our Pasadena dentist, is well-versed in all of these procedures and when patients are viable candidates for each of them.
