What is Cosmetic Dentistry?


There is more to dentistry than cleanings and fillings. Keeping your teeth healthy is important, but sometimes you might want to spruce things up a bit and improve the look of your teeth. Cosmetic dental procedures are not just for the rich and famous anymore. There have been many technological advancements in this area that make smile makeovers more accessible and affordable.

The Choice Is Yours

Let the professionals at Blue Turtle Dental help you chose the treatment that is right for you:

Teeth Whitening: Yes, there are many over the counter options for tooth whitening, but the end result is usually just one shade difference and can take a frustratingly long time. Why not take all of the guess work out of it and let us do it better and faster. Professional bleaching at Blue Turtle Dental is the quicker, easier way to teeth that are up to eight shades lighter!

Veneers: Reasons for getting veneers (which are thin strips of a porcelain or composite resin attached to the original teeth):
o Severe discoloration beyond what whitening can help.
o Broken or chipped tooth.
o Correct gaps.
o Odd shaped  and/or unevenly spaced teeth.

Bonding: A chipped front tooth is most certainly a smile-destroyer, but it’s not the end of the world. We can get you smile-perfect again with a process called ‘bonding’. This is where we apply, shape and contour a composite material directly to the broken tooth. Then a high intensity light is used to harden it. The new tooth is created to perfectly blend with the color of your other teeth and the only ones who will know are you and your dentist!

Crowns and Dental Implants: You might not think of crowns and dental implants as being cosmetic, but they are recommended for missing teeth. Missing teeth can cause your face to sag which can have an aging effect. Implants replace the root and are ‘implanted’ directly into the jawbone. The crown is the part that you can see and looks like the actual tooth.

Contouring/Reshaping: If your teeth are presently in good shape but you want some small, aesthetic changes then contouring and reshaping might be for you. We remove discreet amounts of the enamel to erase small imperfections. You will be surprised at the amazing results you can get from the removal of such minuscule amounts of enamel.

We Want To See You Smile!

There are many roads to the perfect smile which is why the personalized experience we offer at Blue Turtle Dental is the best reason to come in and discuss which option is best for you.

You could be planning your wedding, looking for a new job, creating a dating site profile or just in the mood for a little personal update.

You will want to consider the current health of your teeth, the cost and whether you want a full mouth reconstruction or just a few things to hide some small imperfections.

Whatever your reason, we would love to consult with you and help you choose the best option that fits all of your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are a few things you can ask your dental provider to put your mind at ease:

1. Are they AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) accredited? 

2. Do they use the best quality materials? Sometimes the cheapest price means low quality materials.

3.What kind of continuing education do they and their team receive?

4. You want your smile to be beautiful, but you also want your teeth to be fully functional. Ask about their occlusal training to make certain that you have proper alignment as well as a pretty smile.

5. Look at their website to see if the photos are from real patients as opposed to stock photos. You want to see pics of the real deal, not paid actors.

Over the counter teeth whitening products are fine if your teeth are already in pretty good condition. The cons of OTC products are that they take an extended period of time to work and they usually brighten teeth by just one shade. Dental office whitening is not only quicker but can lighten teeth up to 8 shades.

There are many options available for missing teeth. A conversation with your dentist will help you decide the benefits and disadvantages of each one so you can make an informed decision. Some options include: Dental Implants, Implant Supported Dentures, Fixed Bridges, Removable Partial Dentures, Removable Complete Dentures, Resin Bonded Bridge, and Temporary Replacement Options (called ‘Flippers’).

At Blue Turtle Dental, we evaluate patients for implants, refer suitable patients to a reputable oral surgeon for the placement of an in-house implant and when they are done with the implant, then we restore it with an implant crown. Please know that dental implants are a safe, well-established treatment for teeth replacement and contemporary dental implants have been around for over 30 years.

Please contact us directly to discuss implants. After your oral surgeon completes your implant placement, we place the implant crown. Because there are so many variables involved, there is a range of prices and treatment plans. We will walk you through all of your options. Call or text us at 650-503-3616

There are many options available for smile makeovers, including whitening, porcelain veneers, crowns, bonding, tooth colored fillings, and Invisalign.

It’s a common misconception that cosmetic dentistry is only for adults. Healthy teeth and a nice smile can help children with the self-esteem they need to be happy and successful. There are many minimally invasive options for you to consider for your child.

Cosmetic procedures are usually not covered by insurance, but our clients have nothing but positive things to say about our prices and outcomes. Whether it’s veneers or whitening, our prices are competitive.

We also offer a simple, yet cost effective varnish treatment that relieves teeth sensitivity as well as fluoridated toothpastes. 

If teeth whitening is something you’ve always wanted to do but were hesitant because of the price, we welcome you to come in and treat yourself! In two hours or less and just $350, you will get a spa-like experience of intense relaxation and pampering. While you are kicking back, you can enjoy a favorite movie while your teeth whiten and brighten and before you know it, you’re walking out with a stunning new smile that is not only long lasting, but affordable.
