What kind of cosmetic dentistry services are available?

The team at Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry offers a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments, including:

Cosmetic Bonding

Patients looking for a less-invasive and more cost-effective solution may benefit from cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding involves the application of composite resin, a putty-like material, to the surface of an aesthetically displeasing tooth. For example, cosmetic bonding is an excellent solution for minor chips or cracks. During the procedure, the composite resin will be color-matched to the existing shade of your enamel, making it virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding refers to using a white filling or composite resin to change the shape or contour of your teeth. Bonding is completed in a single appointment and is a completely painless procedure.


Crooked teeth not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but they can also be detrimental to your oral health. For instance, crowded teeth can be much more difficult to properly clean, leaving you at a greater risk for developing tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Luckily, people in need of orthodontic care have more options than ever before. We specialize in Invisalign® clear aligner treatment. Invisalign is designed for patients who want a discrete and effective alternative to traditional metal braces.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect are invisible braces. With them, your dentist moves your teeth using a series of aligners to give you a perfectly straight smile.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the structure and cosmetics of a damaged or decayed tooth. During the procedure, your tooth must be completely reshaped to accommodate the shape of the crown. Once the tooth is reshaped, we will permanently bond the crown to the enamel using a special adhesive. Many crowns are fabricated these days with porcelain, due to its unmatched aesthetics.

Types of Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a covering that looks like a tooth that is put on a fractured, decayed, or damaged tooth. Dental crowns are specially designed to enhance the visual appearance of your teeth and smile. The good thing about these caps is that they are durable and don't need special care. Our dentist at Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry places dental crowns at a cost-friendly price. They come in different types, sizes, and shapes.

Same Day Crowns

With traditional porcelain crowns, it typically takes a minimum of two appointments over several weeks to receive the final crown. The first appointment involves preparing the tooth and placement of a temporary crown. The permanent crown is then made at an external lab and requires a second appointment for cementing. Nevertheless, same day crowns are designed and milled in-office, resulting in just one appointment which only takes about two hours. This process is convenient and will save you more time.

Benefits of Ceramic Crowns

Dental crowns are a common way to improve the appearance of a smile and restore damaged teeth. If you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or discolored, a porcelain crown can restore its radiant state using a custom-colored crown to match the surrounding teeth and minimally invasive medical techniques. Moreover, porcelain crowns are used in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry practices to solve tooth problems. To find out if porcelain crowns are ideal for you, please contact Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry today to schedule your initial consultation. There are several advantages to using porcelain crowns:

Placing Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also referred to as a tooth cap, is a covering that is placed over a tooth for the purpose to protect and restore its function and improve its appearance after it has been damaged. Dental crowns are often recommended for fixing damaged or broken teeth to restore their function. If you have concerns about your teeth and want to determine if a dental crown procedure would be an appropriate treatment option for you, visit our dentist at Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry where they can assess your needs and provide further guidance.

Dental Veneers

A dental veneer is a razor-thin shell that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Like our dental crowns, our veneers are typically made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to fix teeth that are severely discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped, or even gapped. During the procedure, we have to remove a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. For this reason, the veneer procedure is considered irreversible.

What Are Veneers?

According to recent research, a smile is considered to be the most memorable feature of an individual. That explains why more people are today opting for dental veneers. Dental veneers are an excellent option for anyone who wants to bring out their smile. Veneers will enable you to cover any imperfection and ensure you have your most favorable smile.

What Problems Can Veneers Correct?

Are you unhappy with your smile? Many people are, but few realize that porcelain veneers can help them achieve the perfect set of teeth. What are veneers? Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials. They are meant to cover the front of teeth to enhance the look and provide strength and durability equivalent to natural tooth enamel. At Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry you can get veneers that can help give you the smile of your dreams. Veneers are an excellent way to achieve a bright, white smile. Dr. Kabaklian and have included veneers in their practice for quite some time and consider it to be a good option.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are resistant to stain and feel like real teeth.

Veneers vs Dental Crowns

If you're looking to improve the appearance of your teeth, there are various types of dental procedures that can help. Two common treatments used for this purpose include veneers and dental crowns. Both of these solutions offer advantages in terms of restoring a pleasing aesthetic look to your smile. At Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand the need for a beautiful and healthy smile, so our expert team of dentists is here to help guide you through making an informed decision about which procedure might be best suited for your individual needs.

Teeth Whitening

One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients' smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile. Stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!

The team at Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry offers in-office bleaching. While most offices only do one or two rounds of bleaching, Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry leverages four rounds of bleaching to get your teeth as white as possible. They also offer take-home bleaching trays so you can always maintain your whitest smile.

Tooth Colored Enamel Restorations

Your enamel is the hard outer coating that protects your teeth. Your enamel can get damaged or start to decay, but with tooth-colored enamel restoration, the team at Enamel General and Cosmetic Dentistry restores your tooth to its full strength, protects the sensitive interior of your tooth, and helps your smile look its best.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full mouth rehabilitation is a systematic approach to restoring all of your teeth at the same time. It’s about treating the cause of your dental problems, not just the symptoms. For example, placing a single crown to fix a dysfunctional bite can sometimes worsen your condition and cause jaw problems like TMJ.
