Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Question: What is cosmetic dentistry?

Answer: This area of dentistry refers to any procedure designed purely to address the esthetics of your teeth and gums. In many cases, preventive and restorative procedures can be considered cosmetic, as they improve the overall beauty of your smile. Your cosmetic dentist in Vista, CA can help decide which treatment options are best for helping you achieve a stunning smile.

Question: Does Dr. Sabet offer professional teeth whitening?

Answer: Yes. Our in-office whitening procedure can brighten teeth by multiple shades in under an hour. We also provide a home-based whitening procedure. Patients will wear gel-filled trays for a set amount of time each day. After about two weeks, they can enjoy noticeably brighter smiles.

Question: How does porcelain veneers work?

Answer: Veneers are made from thin shells of porcelain, fabricated to mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Dr. Sabet places the veneers over the front of the teeth, where they instantly correct a number of cosmetic issues related to the color, shape, and condition of the teeth.

Question: Can teeth bonding really repair teeth in one visit?

Answer: Yes. Using a composite resin, Dr. Sabet can repair cracked, chipped, or malformed teeth in just one visit. This is the same material used to make tooth-colored fillings.
