Missing teeth can cause you to experience a lot of anxiety, especially in social situations. At Steve Kim, DDS, we offer dental implants which can replace one or all of your teeth. Implants consist of small titanium posts that are placed into your jawbone. Once the jawbone heals, crowns are then attached to the post. Dental implants provide a natural look and feel.
Veneers are a perfect choice for patients who want to cover up stains, cracks, or fill in gaps. Made from porcelain, a veneer is thin in its profile and is bonded to the tooth after some of the tooth’s enamel has been removed.
If you have a small blemish on your tooth or you are lacking enamel on a tooth, you may want to have the tooth bonded. Bonding is made from a resin and is an alternative to fillings. The resin is tooth colored in appearance, so it blends in well to the tooth.
The most common way to improve the look of your smile is to receive teeth whitening services. Our Torrance, CA office offers in-house treatments, which allow you to see instant results. In addition to our in-house option, we also have at-home whitening options, so that you can brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home.
Inlays and Onlays
Often referred to as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are used when a tooth is decayed or damaged. An inlay is used when the material needs to be bonded to the center of the tooth and an onlay is used when the material needs to be bonded to the points of the tooth.
Usually called a cap, a dental crown is used to protect teeth that have been damaged or badly decayed. The cap sits at the gum line and comes in a variety of materials including metal or porcelain. Crowns are also used with dental implants.
Other Cosmetic Dental Procedures
In addition to the cosmetic procedures above, we also specialize in dentures, braces, bridges, and several other procedures. A smile makeover is only a call away and our cosmetic procedures are personalized to ensure you get the smile you want.
