Cosmetic Dentistry – Scripps Ranch, CA
Transform Your Smile. Renew Your Confidence.
At MOD Squad Dental, we understand the direct connection between a healthy mouth and a healthy life. At the same time, we appreciate the proven link between a beautiful smile and higher self-esteem, income, and success. As a result, our cosmetic dentist in Scripps Ranch, Dr. Friedman, has dedicated himself to ensuring exceptional esthetics are built into each treatment plan. In fact, we do not view cosmetic dentistry as an elective procedure. We view it as the heart and soul of our practice and an important component of everything we do.
Beyond the health of your smile, Dr. Friedman wants you to have a look that you’ll enjoy sharing with family and friends. To this end, MOD Squad Dental offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and learn which service is right for you.
When it comes to a top-notch provider of porcelain veneers, patients trust Dr. Friedman and his team. Veneers in Scripps Ranch can give you a more youthful, natural-looking smile in just two visits. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that bond to the front of your teeth to cover discoloration, chips, and gaps. Because they match the color of your natural teeth, veneers will quickly hide blemishes and problems. They are so durable that today’s veneers last between 10 and 15 years. They’re also stain-resistant, so your newly brightened smile will look as good 10 years from now as it does today.
Stains and discoloration can develop for many reasons. If you’re looking to transform your dull and yellowed smile into a whiter, brighter, more confident one, allow us to use ZOOM! teeth whitening or the K?R Whitening system. We can blast away stains in just one 45-minute session, allowing you to walk away with whiter teeth that look and feel brand new. Instead of relying on store-bought kits that often don’t produce the results you desire, professional teeth whitening by Dr. Friedman can help you see a more vibrant and beautiful aesthetic that can last for months with proper care.
For patients whose smiles could use a little MOD style, we can recommend dental bonding. Using the same composite resin that is used for tooth-colored fillings, we can repair chipped and broken teeth or create a new smile. Some of the greatest benefits of dental bonding are that it can be completed in just one visit to our office, it can last for several years, and you can keep more of your natural tooth structure.
Are you embarrassed by your “gummy” smile? Do you think your teeth look “short” or “stubby?” If so, you’ll be pleased to learn that we can easily reconstruct your gum line by removing excess gum tissue. Using advanced techniques and technology, our MOD Squad Dental team will personalize your treatment to help expose more of your natural tooth structure and eliminate unnecessary gum tissue that increases your risk of periodontal disease. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll have results that will last a lifetime!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
If you’re unhappy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be an option for you. Before you’re ready to commit to treatment, you likely have several questions, like will my insurance cover my cosmetic dentistry? We understand your concerns, which is why we take the time to explain everything during your initial consultation. While you wait for your visit, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about cosmetic services to help you feel confident in the decision you’re making for your smile.
Will insurance cover my cosmetic dentistry?
Many people are embarrassed by their smiles. Although they know cosmetic dentistry can help, they often believe it’s too expensive, but this isn’t true. People from all walks of life can benefit from cosmetic services. We offer many solutions to keep your treatment affordable, like using your dental insurance for certain exceptions (i.e., all-ceramic crown).
We also provide our Smile Savings Club, which is a one-time annual fee for access to a host of unique benefits and discounts. You can also enroll in flexible financing through CareCredit, which allows you to choose a low or zero interest payment plan that works for you.
How can chipped or discolored front teeth be restored?
There are several ways we can improve the appearance of imperfect front teeth. If they are stained, brown, or yellow, a whitening treatment can brighten your entire smile, or we can use another method if the discoloration is severe, like dental bonding or porcelain veneers. If the color of your teeth isn’t the issue, we can also resolve chips and cracks. We offer several options depending on your needs, like bonding, crowns, or veneers. Rest assured, your smile treatment will look natural.
Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?
If your teeth aren’t as bright as they used to be, you might be a candidate for teeth whitening. We’ll perform a thorough consultation to ensure you have good oral health. We will also determine the cause of your stains to ensure a whitening treatment will be effective. We can get your teeth as much as 8 shades brighter using a proven whitening system. If a whitening treatment won’t achieve the results you want, veneers are an excellent option to hide stains. Not only will they cover discoloration but also enhance the overall size, shape, and proportion of the tooth.
What can be done about old, unattractive, or discolored fillings?
Traditional fillings are made of metal, which makes them stand out like a sore thumb. We can swap your fillings with a more natural-looking solution. Cosmetic bonding is customized to match the color of your enamel to blend in with your real teeth. As with your enamel, they can discolor over time. If your restoration no longer matches the color of your teeth, we can easily replace it to restore your beautiful smile.
