Cosmetic Services We Offer

We take pride in our ability to customize our cosmetic offerings to fit your specific needs. Our Mission District cosmetic dentists will take the time to discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and goals to better understand which of our services is the right fit for you. In addition, all our restorations are metal-free. If you have any questions before, during, or after your visit, our team is more than happy to answer them.

Our cosmetic dental services include:

Enhance Your Smile With Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple and non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. Coffee, tea, wine, and juice can leave stains on your teeth. Whitening treatment can make a world of difference by removing stains and helping enhance the brightness of your teeth.

The methods for teeth whitening vary, but the results are similar — a whiter and brighter smile. Our Mission District cosmetic services offer a variety of effective teeth whitening options to fit your lifestyle, including:

Disposable Trays

For a simple and mess-free teeth whitening method, disposable trays are a good option. Instead of placing the bleaching solution yourself, the tray comes pre-filled. Then, after each treatment, you throw away the tray. You typically see results after several treatments over a few weeks.

This treatment option consists of custom-fitted trays that use a bleaching solution to whiten your smile within a few weeks. The personalized fit of each tray allows the solution to reach every part of your smile, providing consistent and even results. With custom trays, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.

This treatment is administered at our office by a trained dental professional. The whitening gel is placed on your teeth, and after an hour, you’ll have a brighter smile. You may enjoy this treatment for the convenience of same-day results.

Beautiful Mission District Composite Fillings and Dental Crowns

We know tooth decay and damage can happen to anyone. That is why we offer beautiful crowns and fillings to repair your teeth and return you to daily life as quickly as possible. Our dental office is metal-free, so you never have to worry about your new restoration not blending in with your natural smile. We also take the time needed to craft your filling or dental crown in the Mission District to fit comfortably and securely for long-lasting results.

Your Trusted Invisalign Provider

Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces that uses clear aligners to correct crooked, misaligned, and crowded teeth. There are several benefits associated with Invisalign. Some of these benefits include:

  • The aligners' clear appearance allows you to wear them without feeling self-conscious.
  • Each Invisalign tray is customized to your smile for a comfortable fit.
  • The trays are removable, making them accessible and convenient to clean.
  • There are no food restrictions, meaning you can eat what you like.
  • Invisalign treatment requires fewer progress visits than traditional braces.

We provide comprehensive Invisalign treatment for adults in Mission District, San Francisco. We’ve spent years helping boost confidence with straighter smiles, and we want to help you, too!

What Are Veneers?

They are an excellent option if you have stained or chipped teeth that other cosmetic procedures cannot repair. Veneers are relatively low maintenance, allowing for easy teeth cleaning, and the porcelain material is stain resistant.

Porcelain Veneers for Your Dream Smile

Porcelain veneers are popular for several reasons.

  • They’re made from highly durable ceramic porcelain, allowing for decades of enjoyment with proper care.
  • Each veneer is customized to match the contours of each tooth for a seamless, comfortable fit.
  • Porcelain veneers closely resemble the appearance of your natural teeth.

We also offer composite chairside veneers that can be completed in one visit.

Boosting Confidence With Dental Bonding

Dental bonding uses composite resin to painlessly fill in cracks or gaps in teeth without the need for anesthesia. Additionally, it can take as little as one visit to see results. If you’re looking for a simple way to fix minor imperfections, dental bonding may be the perfect solution for you.
