Our goal at Dental Associates of Lodi, is to create a positive change in your smile. We aim to maintain our patient’s health, dental function, and appearance for their lifetime. We believe that esthetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient. There are many treatment options to improve teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing.
Our focus is to give our patients the best smile we can achieve with the latest technology and techniques. Before deciding on a cosmetic procedure to improve your smile, it’s important to educate yourself regarding the benefits and disadvantage of each procedure.
Our financial team at Dental Associates of Lodi can show you how we can make cosmetic dentistry affordable for you. Our doctor will also show you how to maintain a beautiful healthy smile.
The following are common services that we offer to improve our patient’s smile:
Porcelain Veneers – Ceramic or resin veneers can transform a smile by correcting the size, shape, or color of teeth to create a beautiful smile while maintaining the look of natural teeth.
Crowns and Bridges – A Crown is a restoration technique that is cemented onto existing chipped, cracked or fractured teeth. Although, crowns and bridges can be made of several materials, our office only uses 100% porcelain. With the evolution of all ceramic materials and their higher esthetic qualities, this means that the result is metal-free and a more natural looking final restoration. A Bridge is used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth surrounding the space where the tooth once stood. Crowns and bridges look and feel like natural teeth.
Depending on the patient’s dental needs, Dr Liao and Dr Lee can design a crowns and bridges treatment that is most appropriate to fit the cosmetic and functional needs. We pride ourselves on only working with highly-trained lab technicians to deliver the best quality crowns and bridges for our patients. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, our staff will be happy to set up a free consultation for you.
Teeth Whitening – Teeth often become yellowed or stained over time. Bleaching can help to restore tooth color and make them whiter.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding – Cosmetic dental bonding treatment involves using a resin material to redesign the teeth or correct cosmetic flaws such as cracks, chips, or stains. Dr. Liao applies and sculpts the substance by hand, then uses a special light to harden or “cure” the bonding material. Dental bonding is natural-looking and can last 7 years or more. Composite bonding does not require the removal of healthy structure so we are able to enhance the look of the tooth without compromising its natural strength and integrity.
Dental bonding is the most conservative treatment which involves the least amount of tooth prepping and shaving. This technique is most suitable for correcting minimum cosmetic tooth defects. Bonding materials such as composite resin is very natural in color and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it difficult to discern there ever was a broken or chipped tooth. We encourage you to set up a free consultation with Dental Associates of Lodi If you are wondering whether dental bonding is a treatment of choice for you. We will be happy to assist and answer any questions you may have.
Invisalign® – Teeth can be moved into alignment with clear aligner trays that are barely noticeable when worn. This effective orthodontic treatment is an excellent option for many patients who want to straighten their teeth for a more beautiful smile.
