Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way thanks to new digital dentistry options in San Diego such as CAD/CAM technology. A 3D map of your teeth is made to determine the perfect fit and position for your dental veneers. Thin wafer-like porcelain shells cover the front of the tooth surface to correct misshapen teeth, gaps, ridges and discolorations. Now, thanks to CEREC, you are no longer have to wait for the dental laboratory to mill the veneers.

Tooth contouring corrects minor issues by removing minuscule amounts of enamel from problem areas. This cosmetic procedure is commonly done on the front teeth since they are most visible. Small chips, extra pointy canines, slight overlaps or other minor imperfections of the incisors or canines can be sculpted into an aesthetically pleasing shape.
Dental bonding uses tooth-colored composite resins to repair and mask minor cosmetic and structural imperfections in teeth. Composite resin is brushed on in thin layers and cured before being shaped to attain a proper bite. One visit is usually all it takes to correct chips, uneven tooth lengths and even small gaps.
