Cosmetic Dental Solutions
Whenever possible, Drs. Afzali and Sanford will improve your oral health through cosmetic procedures and restorations. The goal is to care for the dentition in a comprehensive manner, preventing and solving dental problems, rather than treating a single condition.
Invisalign® - The Invisalign® system is a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces. The clear aligners are worn for most of the day to gently move your teeth into the desired position. Because the aligners are removable, patients enjoy the freedom of unlimited diets and improved oral hygiene capability.
Dental Implants - The most technologically advanced solution for missing teeth, an implant will fuse to the bone to create a stable, standalone anchor for a prosthetic tooth or teeth. Dental implants will support single crowns, bridges or dentures, full and partial.
Teeth Whitening - Achieving a whiter smile in San Diego is easy and convenient with options like Zoom! chairside teeth in-office whitening treatment. Patients take home custom trays to prepare their teeth two weeks prior to treatment. We supply
mouthwash and toothpaste for at-home care that will help maximize their comfort in time for the whitening procedure. We also offer convenient pre-formed take-home trays, Opalescence to Go, which patients can purchase without an exam for themselves or as gifts.
Crown and Bridge - Restorative work for severely damaged or missing teeth is done to enhance your smile. Crowns and bridges are created using materials such as tooth colored zirconia, eMax, or porcelain and patients can opt for a gold crown as well. The finished restoration is made to precisely match the color neighboring teeth, complete your bite and return full function back into your dentition.
Fillings – R.B. Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Diego is an amalgam-free dental practice. Rather than using metal fillings for treating cavities, our dental team opts for composite fillings. When traditional fillings will not support the integrity of a more damaged tooth, our Rancho Bernardo cosmetic dentists may suggest an inlay or onlay. These restorations are made using e.max or porcelain materials, thus providing patients with a durable, natural looking restorative solution.
Tooth Bonding - This conservative cosmetic procedure will save healthy portions of your tooth and can be used to recontour a broken or uneven teeth as well as fill in unwanted gaps between teeth. Tooth bonding uses composite resin to improve your smile and is often utilized in place of a veneer.
Veneers - These slim porcelain attachments are used to create a beautiful smile for patients who are unhappy with the shape, size, gap width or hard to remove stains such as tetracycline stain. Veneers are bonded to the front of teeth to improve your smile.
Cosmetic Recontouring - This cosmetic procedure will reshape the edges of tooth enamel to create a straighter smile.
Snap on Smile – A Snap on Smile is a removable smile that can be easily placed onto your teeth. They do not require any prep work of your teeth and are very easy to care for. This cosmetic solution is a more affordable option than veneers and will only take two to three weeks to complete.
