What Is Cosmetic Dentistry in See Me Smile Oxnard CA

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry in Oxnard?

Cosmetic dentistry includes dental procedures that are done specifically to improve the aesthetics of a person’s smile.

Because they’re not technically necessary for proper form and function, many insurance companies won’t cover cosmetic dental procedures.

In some cases, though, we can work with an insurance company to cover a procedure if we can explain how it will help improve a person’s oral health. For example, an insurance company may be inclined to pay for a crown if the patient presents with tooth sensitivity due to a large filling.

Should I Invest in Cosmetic Dentistry?

Since many cosmetic procedures aren’t covered by dental insurance, many patients wonder why they should invest in cosmetic dentistry in Oxnard.

The main reason is that a beautiful smile makes people feel better about themselves. Recent research has found that people’s confidence improved when they liked their smiles. Improved confidence might not seem that important until you factor in how it’s needed to:

  • Go after your dream job
  • Change careers
  • Do things outside your comfort zone
  • Start new relationships

Confidence touches every part of our lives. Investing in cosmetic dentistry is just one step we can take to improve our confidence and our life.

Teeth Whitening in Oxnard

Teeth whitening is the foundation of cosmetic dentistry. It’s the most cost-effective option for most patients and offers the quickest results. We offer two different ways to whiten and brighten your smile.

Zoom Whitening

Zoom Whitening is an in-office whitening system. It takes about an hour.

We start by isolating your teeth, drying them, and placing the whitening gel on them. Then, we expose your teeth to an ultraviolet light for approximately 15 minutes. After that, we’ll reapply the gel and shine the ultraviolet light on your teeth again. We repeat this up to a total of four times.

By the end of your appointment, your teeth can be up to eight shades brighter.

At-Home Whitening

If you prefer whitening your teeth in the convenience and comfort of your own home, at-home whitening is a great option.

We’ll take impressions of your teeth and fabricate custom whitening trays. Then, we’ll provide you with a whitening gel and whitening instructions.

You’ll take the gel and trays home and whiten when it fits your schedule.

Whitening at home doesn’t result in a dramatic difference as quickly as Zoom Whitening. It will take a couple of weeks to see results.

Porcelain Dental Veneers See Me Smile Dental Oxnard CA

Porcelain Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are used to:

  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Make crooked front teeth appear straighter
  • Hide stubborn stains
  • Support minor cracks in the front teeth
  • Repair chips or minor fractures

Dental veneers in Oxnard are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the front teeth. They can give you that beautiful Hollywood smile that so many people want.

Dental Implants in Oxnard

If you have missing teeth, one of the best ways to replace them is with dental implants. Implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Plus, because they integrate into your jawbone, they help prevent jawbone recession, gum disease, and dental decay.

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Do you have large fillings, cracks in your teeth, or old crowns that aren’t aesthetically pleasing? We can solve these problems with porcelain crowns. Using durable porcelain, we can match a crown to the shade of your natural teeth, so it blends perfectly.

Porcelain Inlays & Onlays

Not every tooth with decay needs a crown. If you need more support than a filling, porcelain inlays and onlays may be recommended. These restorations take the place of silver or stained white fillings and blend in beautifully with your natural teeth.

Porcelain Fixed Bridges in Oxnard

Another option for restoring missing teeth is with a porcelain bridge. A dental bridge uses two abutment teeth (adjacent to the missing tooth), covers them with crowns, and fuses the crowns to a pontic or fake tooth.

Is Orthodontic Treatment Considered Cosmetic Dentistry?

We can perform orthodontic services to treat minor aesthetic issues, like a gap between your front teeth.

However, whenever you have crowded, crooked, or gapped teeth, it’s usually more than an aesthetic issue. Function is involved.

We can restore proper function by treating the cause of crowding, crooked, or gapped teeth, which is typically malocclusion.

Not only will you get a smile you love, but you’ll also get one that functions optimally and is ultimately healthier.

Types of Orthodontic Services

We offer three types of primary orthodontic services.

Metal Braces

Traditional braces consist of brackets and an archwire. The archwire gently guides the teeth into their ideal positions.

Porcelain Ceramic Braces

Porcelain crowns are similar to metal crowns except that the brackets are made of porcelain, making them nearly invisible.


Invisalign® clear aligners are the most invisible of all orthodontic treatments. The aligners tend to be more comfortable than brackets. And because Invisalign® aligners are removable, it’s easier to practice dental home care.
