Many people feel that a white and even smile says a lot about them. Unfortunately, as we age things like stains, chips and old fillings can mar the teeth in your smile, leaving you feeling self-conscious and wanting to explore your cosmetic restoration options.

Fortunately, the dental professionals at Southern Marin Dental are highly trained and well versed in a wide range of cosmetic restoration options. The specific imperfection you want addressed will determine the which option is best for you.

Dental veneers are a popular option for restoring your smile, if you have teeth with chips as well as deep stains. The porcelain dental veneers are custom crafted in a dental lab out of a porcelain that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile.

If you are only looking to address staining issues caused by dark foods and drinks or the natural processes of aging, you might want to talk to Southern Marin Dental about exploring some whitening products or procedures. Our highly trained staff can help you identify the underlying cause of the stains, and determine the best method to meet your teeth whitening goals.

For teeth with only minor to moderate stains, you might be able to gradually whiten them with retail level whitening products. However, in many cases the concentration of whitening agents in these products usually pales in comparison to the effectiveness of the professional tooth bleaching procedure offered by Southern Marin Dental.

If you would like to explore your options for cosmetically restoring the teeth in your smile, you should call Southern Marin Dental at 415-578-5879 to schedule an appointment.
