At Infinite Smiles, we believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they can be proud of. Dr. Boulos offers several treatment options for cosmetic dentistry in the South Bay that range from correcting teeth discolorations to a complete smile makeover. She will conduct a complete smile assessment, listen to your concerns and your goals, and create a customized treatment plan for you.
Here are some of the cosmetic dental procedures we offer.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that are directly bonded to your teeth. They are custom made to fit perfectly on your teeth, allowing us to mask chips, discolorations, eliminate gaps between teeth, and correct misalignments.
The process is relatively simple. Dr. Boulos will consult with you about your desires and goals. She may recommend a wax-up model to make it easier for you to see what the final results will look like.
We will then schedule an appointment where Dr. Boulos will use a shade guide to choose the shade of your new veneers before buffing away a thin layer of enamel. This step ensures that once the veneers are bonded, they will not look bulky. She will then take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to a lab for fabrication of your veneers.
In the meantime, you will wear a set of temporary veneers. Once the permanent veneers are ready, you will return to have them bonded onto your teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Over time and as we age, the protective, whiter layer of tooth enamel wears away, leaving discoloration. Tooth stains or discoloration can also be the result of routine habits such as coffee, tea, and wine-drinking. At Infinite Smiles, Dr. Boulos offers two types of solutions to brighten your teeth and remove years of superficial staining.
In-Office Whitening: We use ZOOM! technology to apply a thin layer of bleaching gel directly to your teeth and use a light that triggers the whitening process. In about an hour’s time, you will leave our office with a smile that is several shades lighter. If you have a wedding, special event, or professional photos to take then this treatment is for you!
Take-Home Whitening: We offer custom-made teeth whitening kits consisting of a fitted plastic tray and bleaching gel you apply in the comfort of your own home. We will show you how to place the whitening gel in the reservoirs of each tooth and safely wear the tray. When used regularly for 30 minutes a day for 10 to 14 days, you will see an improved, brighter smile.
