Cosmetic Dentistry

Transform Your Smile and Improve Your Confidence and Quality of Life

Cosmetic dentistry is the art and technology of improving a smile. It can be part of improving the health of your teeth but is mostly done for aesthetic reasons.

Dr. Pham finds it very rewarding to transform her patient’s smiles and improve their confidence and quality of life. She has 12 years of experience in cosmetic dentistry, and has taken several courses over the years to improve her knowledge and skills in this area. Dr. Pham is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. She also teaches at UCSF and gains even more expertise while helping her students.

What cosmetic dentistry can do for you

With cosmetic dentistry you can change many imperfections of your smile such as gaps, crooked or protruding teeth, discolored or yellowed teeth and more.

Although we offer a full range of services to improve your smile, Dr. Pham prefers non-invasive procedures that are more comfortable for the patient. Many smile makeovers can be done in just a visit or two.

Complimentary Cosmetic Consultation

Your first step is a free consultation with Dr. Pham or one of her associates. Your free consultation includes:

Our Approach to a beautiful Smile Makeover

The doctor will discuss with you how you feel about your smile and what you would like to change about it. What you want is of great importance to us. All of our doctors take their time to explain your various options and answer any questions you may have about them.

Once you have decided to go ahead with your smile makeover, a custom plan is made for you.

We use digital X-rays to gather all necessary diagnostics for your chosen treatment.

Depending on the procedure, a full set of panoramic X-rays are taken as well as full-facial photographs.

Together, you and the doctor will work out what look best suits your personality and your face.

In some cases a wax-up model of your smile is made to show you what your new smile will look like. Changes can be made until you are fully satisfied.

Excellent lab work

Part of Dr. Pham’s success with smile makeovers is due to the fact that she uses a top-quality, local lab that specializes in cosmetic cases. They can make restorations in any shade or shape desired, and the results are beautiful and natural looking.

Procedures we use to create your beautiful smile

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a high-quality, thin shell that covers the front of your tooth. They are a simple, yet long-lasting and beautiful solution for many cosmetic problems. They can be placed in as little as two visits.

Dental Bonding

Bonding is a tooth-colored resin that is applied to teeth to improve their shape or to correct imperfections. Bonding can be a good option for cosmetic dental work.
Crowns completely cover the tooth and are usually made from porcelain or porcelain and metal. They are used to cover broken-down, discolored or weakened teeth.
We do in-house teeth whitening with Zoom and Opalescence Boost and offer professional strength take-home whitening kits as well.

Missing teeth can not only ruin your smile but can also cause problems chewing and other oral health issues.

We recommend dental implants as a durable, natural-looking solution for missing teeth. Dr. Bonin is very experienced in placing dental implants.

With Invisalign clear aligners, teeth can be effectively straightened almost invisibly. The comfortable plastic aligner trays may be removed for brushing, flossing and special occasions.

Gum Re-contouring

For an uneven gum line or a “gummy” smile, it is possible to undergo gum re-contouring to give you a more attractive smile.

Enamel Recontouring

Enamel recontouring is a dental cosmetic process of contouring natural teeth to improve their overall appearance. This is done by removing small amounts of tooth enamel in order to change the length, shape or surface contours of a tooth.

Conditions we can fix with Cosmetic Dentistry

Teeth Whitening

Brighten your Teeth for a More Confident Smile

A simple way to improve your smile is to whiten your teeth. Yellowed and stained teeth can be an embarrassment but in most cases can be improved with professional teeth whitening. Feel more confident by flashing a brighter smile.

Why teeth darken?

As we age the outer layer of enamel on our teeth wears down and the darker color beneath begins to show. In addition, certain drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, as well as medications and smoking can stain or discolor your teeth.

In-office whitening, with Zoom!® and Opalescence Boost®

We can make your teeth several shades whiter in one visit. We use a combination of Zoom! laser whitening and Opalescence Boost. We have found this combination to be very effective and causes little sensitivity. Your comfort is important to us in all procedures. These systems are safe and effective.

Take-home Opalescence and Zoom

We also offer take-home whitening trays from Zoom or Opalescence. Your doctor will advise you which is most suitable for you. These whitening systems can only be purchased at a dentist’s office and are more effective than over-the-counter whitening systems.
