Cosmetic Dentistry

A wide variety of cosmetic dental options are available at the office of our San Francisco cosmetic dentistry expert Dr. Ben Amini and Associate dentists at CitiDent. Whether patients need to correct issues of color or structure, they can receive effective treatments that frequently also offer protection for teeth. Cosmetic treatments may be used individually or recommended for use in combination with each other, such as in the smile makeover.

Teeth that have been stained by foods, drinks, or smoking can often be made brilliant again with whitening options from our experts in cosmetic dentistry in San Francisco. Laser teeth whitening is available and enables fast, comfortable resolution of superficial teeth stains. Zoom whitening, another option, involves a combination of carbamide peroxide gel and a special light that is used multiple times within a single appointment. Our dentists may recommend another option, such as veneers, for concealing stains that are not treatable through whitening because they originate from inside the teeth.

Veneers are useful for concealing issues of structure and spacing as well as internal tooth stains. Porcelain veneers, constructed from sturdy ceramic and tinted to look natural, can hide cracks, chips, and gaps permanently while also reinforcing treated teeth. Our San Francisco cosmetic dentistry experts at CitiDent also offer minimal-prep veneers, which are better for teeth, because they require less removal of enamel before placement.

Patients with multiple concerns about their smile can ask our dentist about the smile makeover. The smile makeover is a personalized combination of treatments recommended by our dentists based on the goals patients have. The number of appointments and amount of time required to complete the smile makeover depends on the procedures that patients select. Teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign are just a few possible smile makeover options.

After receiving any treatment from our experts in cosmetic dentistry in San Francisco, patients can help their results last longer by brushing and flossing every day and visiting us for a check-up at least once every six months. Although patients can repeat teeth whitening regularly for maintenance of their new looks, patients can expect veneers to last many years with proper care. To learn more about our cosmetic dentistry options, patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Ben Amini and Associate dentists at CitiDent.

Dr. Ben Amini is a Sustaining Member of Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).
