Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of your smile, including the health and appearance of your teeth and gums. Even minor imperfections can make you feel self-conscious about showing off your smile. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can address many aesthetic concerns, from discolored teeth to misshapen or gapped teeth.
In some cases, cosmetic care can even improve your overall dental health by treating conditions like tooth decay and periodontal disease that can lead to further complications if left untreated. At Town Center Dental, we offer personalized care and provide patients with customized cosmetic dentistry solutions to address issues like cracked or chipped teeth, discolored teeth, uneven teeth, uneven gum line, or misaligned teeth.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you have teeth that are stained, crooked, chipped, or gapped, cosmetic dentistry is an excellent option for you! You can discuss your goals and concerns during your consultation with our cosmetic dentist. This will allow our cosmetic dentist to determine the best treatments for your needs.
Some cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed in as little as one visit, while others require multiple visits and at-home care. Every patient is different, and our cosmetic dentist will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Professional teeth whitening treatments use prescription strength gels applied to the surface of your teeth to gently but effectively lift stains and lighten the color of your smile by several shades in a short time. Several whitening options are available at our cosmetic dentist’s office, including take-home kits and professional treatment performed in the dental office.
Dental Bonding & Fillings
Fillings are a conservative and more aesthetic alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. Bonding can quickly repair chips or cracks in the tooth enamel and restore damaged teeth.
These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front surface of your teeth and can correct a wide variety of cosmetic flaws, such as chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, and misalignment issues. If you have several cosmetic flaws that you would like to address at once, veneers may be your best option.
When you choose cosmetic dentistry at our practice, you can expect natural-looking results that last for years. To schedule your consultation, visit Town Center Dental at 301 E Cook St, Ste F, Santa Maria, CA 93454, or call (805) 925-2652.
