Can Conservative Cosmetic Care Help Me?

The idea of cosmetic dentistry can seem appealing, but it may be hard to commit when you believe the work you need will require serious time and/or effort. What can you do if you want to improve your smile but feel uneasy about a more involved procedure? At our Santa Monica, CA dental office, we can provide information on conservative solutions to problems with the way you look. One option is to receive Lumineers, which are slimmer than traditional veneers and reduce the preparatory work required to improve your smile. Another option is treatment with clear aligners; for patients who are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth, this can be a welcome alternative to metal braces! (more…)
