Learn More about Monterey, CA Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dental treatment has gained popularity in recent years, as many of the procedures that fall under this category are able to dramatically change the appearance of your smile for the better. If you’ve always wanted a bright white and healthy-looking smile, Dr. Kim can help you realize your goals with cosmetic dentistry in Monterey, CA.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do?

Cosmetic dental treatments are primarily concerned with improving the outward appearance of your teeth. With help from our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kim, you can successfully rid your smile of:

• Stains
• Chips
• Cracks
• Discoloration
• Uneven wear
• Signs of decay

Dr. Kim wants your smile to look both beautiful and natural, which is why he offers tooth-colored restorations, including composite dental fillings and all-porcelain crowns. You can be sure that any treatment you receive at our office will be designed to blend in with your existing teeth for a smile that looks effortlessly improved.

Dr. Kim does not use silver in dental treatments – if you are receiving a dental crown or other dental prosthetic for cosmetic reasons, your treatment will be all-porcelain, instead of porcelain-over-metal, which can cause cosmetic issues as it ages. Dr. Kim works with a trusted local dental lab for creation of dental prosthetics. Since the lab is so close, the technicians visit during your consultation and help you pick the exact right shade of porcelain for your crowns, veneers, and dental bridges.

Cosmetic Dental Options

There are many ways that Dr. Kim and his team can care for your smile in order to make it look bright and healthy.  His cosmetic dental specialties include:

  • Porcelain Veneers – A veneer is a tooth covering made of natural-looking material. These coverings are attached to the fronts of teeth to disguise cosmetic issues. The result is a smile that is even, well-aligned, and a renewed shade of white.  The traditional veneers supplied by Dr. Kim’s Monterey cosmetic dental office make it easy to change the shade of your teeth, if their color has not been improved with whitening treatment, while addressing a series of other dental problems, such as misshapen teeth or even slightly gapped and crowded teeth. Getting veneers involves very little preparation and can produce an ideal smile in a short number of visits.

  • Fixed Bridges – If you are missing a tooth, a fixed bridge permanently restores your smile’s healthy appearance by providing you with a tooth replacement. The pontic, or fake tooth, portion of a dental bridge is held in place by two porcelain dental crowns, which are attached to the teeth surrounding the gap in your smile. Dental bridges are a popular and efficient way to address instances of tooth loss. 

  • Teeth Whitening – Our Monterey teeth whitening treatment is customized just for you. Dr. Kim creates special trays that are made to precisely fit your smile. These trays are part of his take-home teeth whitening kits; you can comfortably and easily whiten your teeth while taking care of household chores, or relaxing on the couch. Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile appeal and get a boost of confidence. If you prefer to whiten your teeth without the use of a tray, Dr. Kim also offers professional-strength teeth whitening strips, which provide you with the same wow-worthy results as teeth whitening with custom trays.

No matter what your oral health concern may be, Dr. Kim has a cosmetic dental solution that can help you. During your consultation for cosmetic treatment, Dr. Kim thoroughly evaluates the health of your teeth and gums and takes time to go over findings and options for treatment. Working as a team, you and Dr. Kim can create the cosmetic dentistry treatment plan that will help you see the smile you deserve.
