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!

How Can I Fix My Smile? Why you should choose dental implants from Dr. Sydon Arroyo in Torrance, CA.

So, you are missing a tooth, and you wonder how you can smile again. The answer may be dental implants. Dental implants, such as those provided by Dr. Sydon Arroyo, in Torrance, California, are considered to be the best way to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

If you lose a tooth or multiple teeth, you will start to lose bone in your jaw. Your jawbone functions to support your teeth. When you no longer Dental Implants have teeth, the bone will begin to lose density and disappear.

Typically, when you lose a tooth, your options are:

  • Don’t replace it: leaving you with a space and reduced chewing ability
  • A removable partial: which may not fit well and may be uncomfortable
  • A denture: which also may not fit well, may be uncomfortable, and needs to be relined periodically
  • A bridge: which involves treating the teeth that are going to hold the bridge in place
  • An implant: either a single tooth or multiple teeth

You should choose an implant because it is the just like having your natural tooth. Some of the benefits of implants include:

  • Better appearance: They look just like natural teeth and you will have a natural smile
  • Better speaking ability: They will stay in place, allowing you to speak clearly and without fear
  • Better chewing ability: They are permanent and don’t slip and slide the way dentures and partials can
  • Greater convenience: You don’t have to take them in and out as you do with partials or dentures
  • Greater comfort: They are just like having a natural tooth
  • Greater durability: With the proper care they can last a lifetime
Implants are truly a permanent, stable solution to missing teeth, allowing you to have a more youthful, vibrant smile. You deserve the very best in dental care, so stop in and visit Dr. Sydon Arroyo, your esthetic dentist in Torrance, California. He will give you back your smile!
