Do you smile with confidence, or do you feel self-conscious about how your teeth look? If you’re in the second situation, you’re not alone. Every year, many patients seek out one cosmetic service or another to help them improve the appearance of their teeth. Cosmetic dentistry has so many options for you, and we can work with specific goals and budget. Dr. Jorgenson of Advanced Dental Care offers helpful cosmetic services to help Costa Mesa patients achieve a more dazzling smile.
Veneers are thin pieces of dental porcelain used to redesign and reshape a smile with cracked, chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth. Often, we can complete a full veneer procedure in as little as two visits. On your first visit, we’ll discuss what kind of results you want to achieve and take an impression of your teeth. We’ll also prepare your teeth for placement and attach a set of temporary veneers. Once our lab has finished your permanent veneers, you’ll come back to our office and have your temporary set replaced by your finished set. Veneers are a fast, easy solution for a beautiful smile.
As an alternative to veneers, Snap-On Smile helps patients create a beautiful smile using a simple mouthpiece that completely changes the way your teeth look. Made from a durable resin, your Snap-On Smile will provide you with beautiful, long-lasting results. The mouthpiece simply snaps on and off whenever you need it, and cleaning only takes a few seconds. It’s extremely strong, durable, and natural-looking, and it will help you feel completely confident with every grin.
Whenever we repair a tooth that shows prominently in the smile, we don’t want the final result to just be strong, but natural-looking as well. That’s why we only use metal-free crowns when restoring easily seen teeth. They are made of 100% dental porcelain that is designed to resemble real enamel down to the finest detail. In the end, the only people who will be able to distinguish the crown from your other teeth will be you and your dentist!
Cosmetic bonding is a quick and easy solution that is perfect for patients with minor dental imperfections. Small chip? Thin gap? Slight stain? All can be covered using a composite resin designed to match the rest of your teeth. Your dentist will shape it to look like a normal part of the enamel, and in an hour or less, it will seem like nothing was ever wrong with your smile.
To help you achieve whiter, more dazzling teeth, we use one of today’s best professional whitening systems: Epic Laser Teeth Whitening. Unlike traditional in-office bleaching services, the Epic Laser utilizes light technology to activate the bleaching gel rather than heat for instant, painless results. The Epic Laser Teeth Whitening can help you overcome stains caused by coffee, wine, smoking, and other foods you might encounter on a daily basis. What’s more, we can help you achieve your results in one appointment. If you're considering teeth whitening, learn more about the whitening services Dr. Jorgenson offers at Advanced Dental Care.
Whenever you smile, does more gum tissue show than your teeth? This is commonly known as a “gummy” smile, and one can easily make someone feel less than confident about their appearance. Fortunately, with a soft tissue laser, our team can fix this issue in just a few minutes. Quickly and precisely, the laser can remove any excess tissue to instantly help the teeth appear longer and the smile fuller. Because the laser is so gentle, most patients don’t even need local anesthetic to remain completely comfortable during the procedure.

Do you have unattractive white spots on your teeth due to dental fluorosis or other causes? Icon is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a special resin to give your smile a more even appearance. The resin soaks into the enamel, thus filling in areas without adequate mineralization and resulting in teeth that you’ll be proud to show off. The treatment process is comfortable and delivers results that can last for years.
If you’re not in love with your teeth, you don’t have to feel embarrassed by the way they look. We can transform your teeth and your confidence with a smile makeover. Our office uses the latest techniques and treatments in restorative and cosmetic dentistry to enhance the health, aesthetics, and function of the teeth. We’ll create a personalized treatment plan, so you can love the smile you see in the mirror.
If you’re looking to get a smile you love to show off, it’s likely that you have some questions about cosmetic dentistry in Costa Mesa. That’s why for your convenience, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions we get below so you can learn more! If you don’t see the answers you’re looking for, give us a call and schedule a consultation so we can address your concerns personally and provide all the information you need to make a well-informed decision.
First, it’s important to narrow down what you’d like to improve about your teeth: is it their size, shape, color, or a combination of these factors? Some options are only designed to correct specific flaws. For instance, if you only want to change the color of your teeth, teeth whitening or icon treatment might be best. Or if you want a less gummy-looking smile or longer-looking teeth, gum recontouring may be better. However, if there are several things you’d like to fix up about your smile, you may prefer a more comprehensive service like veneers or a versatile treatment like cosmetic bonding. The treatment that’s “best” for you will depend entirely on the results you hope to achieve!
There is no upper age limit to cosmetic dentistry, which is ideal because our pearly whites are subject to lots of wear and tear as the years go by. The older you are, the more likely you are to have chipped, stained, and uneven teeth. Fortunately, as long as you’re in good oral health, you can never be too old for a better smile!
Alternatively, not all cosmetic services are a good choice for children, especially if they don’t have all their permanent teeth yet. However, dental flaws can be just as embarrassing for kids and teenagers as they are for adults, especially as they go to school and make friends. Depending on your little one’s unique case, they may be a good candidate for treatments like teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding to help their smile look its best once again.
Improving your smile with cosmetic dentistry should be a comfortable experience regardless of which service you choose. We go to great lengths to make sure our treatments are virtually pain-free. Not only do we have a relaxing office atmosphere and a friendly dental team, but we use reliable numbing medication and even offer a variety of dental sedation options to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible no matter what treatment they’re getting. If you have sensitive teeth, an overactive gag reflex, a resistance to numbing medication, or any other worries about how comfortable your appointment will be, don’t hesitate to tell us! We’ll have a conversation about your concerns and make adjustments to ensure your treatment is as smooth, relaxing, and comfortable as possible.
