Could cosmetic dentistry finally be the link between you and a beautiful smile?

It’s not much of a surprise that people have been trying for many centuries to get an attractive smile. Fortunately, we have cosmetic cosmetic dentistry, beautifuldentistry to help make getting your dream smile a little easier. From the office of your Torrance, CA dentists, Dr. Sydon Arroyo and Dr. Richard Rounsavelle, find out more about the cosmetic procedures we offer to improve your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Want to get a smile that is several shades whiter in less than an hour? Then it’s time to get in-office whitening in Torrance, CA. This procedure is a safe, painless and effective way to remove deep-set surface stains caused by food, drinks, aging and smoking.

Dental Bonding

One of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic procedures, dental bonding is recommended when you are looking to tweak more minor chips and cracks. Bonding is great for aesthetic issues that keep you from having a more attractive smile such as small stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening. This tooth-colored resin is applied over the problem area to cover it completely. No needles, no anesthesia and no pain!

Tooth Reshaping

Maybe you have excessively pointed canines that look rather harsh against the rest of your smile. If so, tooth reshaping is one way to change the shape or height of a tooth. Of course, tooth reshaping won’t be able to completely fix a seriously malformed tooth but it can be great for those looking to make more minor changes to the shape of a tooth or teeth.

Dental Implants

Implants have become a wonderful lifelong solution to replacing one or more missing teeth. By placing the metal implant into the jawbone, where it will fuse together with bone, we can replace your missing tooth roots and provide a stable and permanent foundation from which to attach a dental crown, bridge or even full set of dentures if you need to replace all of your teeth.

Dental Veneers

If you want to cover more major flaws like chips, cracks, discolorations, misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth or you want to fix minor misalignments then dental veneers to the rescue! These thin porcelain shells are designed to mimic the same translucency as real teeth, but are adhered to the front portion of your teeth to mask problems and to give you a smile that is brighter, straighter and more appealing.

Think one of these cosmetic procedures could give you the smile you’ve been wanting? Then it’s time to schedule a consultation in Torrance, CA. Call Sydon Arroyo, DDS & Richard K. Rounsavelle, DDS Comprehensive & Esthetic Dentistry today!

Find out if getting clear braces is the right approach to getting the smile you want.

When we think about braces we often envision those awkward, bulky metal braces that everyone can see. We also picture children andInvisalign teens wearing them. But more and more adults are turning to their Torrance  dentists Dr. Sydon Arroyo and Dr. Richard Rounsavelle to get a straighter smile because now we can give you the smile you want without other people noticing your braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is made up of a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit over the upper or lower teeth to shift them into the proper alignment. These aligners look similar to whitening trays except that they are designed based off impressions taken of your teeth so you’ll get a comfortable, easy fit that traditional braces can’t always promise.

Why would Invisalign be great for my smile?

There are many reasons why your Torrance  dentists may recommend Invisalign for your smile-straightening needs. If you are a teen or adult who is looking to improve the look of your smile but is embarrassed or concerned about wearing braces, Invisalign can straighten your smile without needing to wear metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is discreet and subtle, so no one will be able to tell that you are wearing your aligners.

Secondly, Invisalign is completely removable so you don’t have to change your lifestyle around to accommodate your orthodontics. You can continue eating all your favorite foods and you don’t have to worry about flossing around wires and fragile metal braces. Invisalign seamlessly fits into your daily routine.

How does Invisalign work?

Once you get your Invisalign, you will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. The only time you will remove them is to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace your aligners with new ones in your treatment plan your teeth will start to move. Each aligner is designed to shift certain teeth a specified amount so that at the end of your treatment you have a straighter smile. 

Invisalign may sound too good to be true but so many patients have benefitted from the effects of these nearly invisible aligners and you can, too! Find out if you are a good candidate for treatment by scheduling a consultation with your dentists in Torrance  .
