A smile full of imperfect, stained, or chipped teeth can really leave you feeling self-conscious in many aspects in life. Here at Southern Marin Dental our team of dental professionals are all highly trained and experienced in a wide array of cosmetic dentistry applications. We can help you explore and understand all of your options for Improving your smile.

If it’s merely a matter that your teeth have been stained by dark foods and beverages, we can help you understand your whitening options. This often calls for having your teeth professionally bleached. Then we can help you understand your options for maintaining their whiteness and luster on a daily basis.

Whitening toothpaste or whitening strips can usually whiten minor surface stains and maintain your whitened smile in between your regular dental cleanings.

If the teeth in your smile also have imperfections from visible fillings, chips or minor fractures, you might be interested in restoring those teeth with dental veneers or a crown.

Dental veneers are basically thin porcelain shells that are cemented onto the face of each tooth in your smile. If one or more of the teeth in your smile lacks the sufficient enamel to mount a dental veneer, your dentist might recommend replacing all of the tooth enamel with a porcelain crown.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you should call Southern Marin Dental’s office in Mill Valley, California at 415-578-5879 to explore your cosmetic dentistry options.
