Our Encinitas Cosmetic Dentists Can Help You With…

Repair Chips, Cavities & Fractures With Dental Bonding

As a full-service dental practice, our staff and our Encinitas cosmetic dentists specialize in chipped teeth. We can use porcelain dental bonding to cover your tooth’s surface if it has become damaged. Bonding repairs chips, cavities, or fractures.

Our dentists can also use tooth-colored porcelain dental bonding as a metal-free alternative to replace your outdated silver fillings. Everything wears away, and your silver fillings will be no exception. They hold up against stress-filled and heavy biting forces daily, and as they age, they break, leak, and can cause damaging fractures in your teeth. Over time, metal amalgam fillings have the ability to soak up water, causing them to swell and even break away from your tooth. This can cause your tooth to be more vulnerable to decay and tenderness.

In addition to improving the aesthetic appearance of your smile, our natural-looking porcelain bonding material carries far fewer health risks than silver fillings. To learn more about the numerous benefits of porcelain dental bonding, schedule an appointment to speak with our experienced Encinitas cosmetic dentists.

Improve the Appearance of Your Teeth With Veneers

McElroy Smiles By Design specializes in veneers, which are thin, tooth-colored materials that bond to the front of your own teeth. You can get a veneer on just one tooth or on numerous teeth to revitalize your smile. Our Encinitas cosmetic dentists sometimes also recommend veneers to protect any damaged tooth surfaces.

Whether you are dissatisfied with the physical appearance of your teeth or have concerns about their structural function, veneers may be a solution. Here are some common reasons that patients have opted for veneers as their ideal smile solution:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Eroded teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth that don’t respond to teeth whitening

With dental veneers from McElroy Smiles By Design, your smile can be drastically improved in as little as two visits! To find out if you would be a good candidate for dental veneers, schedule an appointment with our Encinitas cosmetic dentists by calling 760-230-6638 or clicking here.

Get a Brighter & Whiter Smile With Teeth Whitening

If you wish your smile were brighter or whiter than it currently is, McElroy Smiles By Design can help! As you get older, your teeth naturally darken and become stained. These stains deepen over time from the foods and drinks you consume, as well as from other potential factors such as smoking or tartar buildup.

Fortunately, our expert Encinitas cosmetic dentists can safely, carefully, and effectively restore your dazzling, white smile with our personalized teeth whitening solution. Here are just a few of the types of unsightly stains cosmetic teeth whitening can get rid of:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tobacco
  • Foods
  • Tartar

In just one appointment at McElroy Smiles By Design, you can have a whiter, youthful-looking smile again.

How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Differ from Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening?

Two main factors differentiate over-the-counter teeth whitening products from the doctor-supervised whitening treatment you will receive at our dental office in Encinitas, CA

  1. Better Results – Teeth whitening products from the store will not be as effective as in-office treatment, because the strength of the solution will simply be weaker than what you can get in a doctor-supervised visit. When you have your teeth whitened by an experienced professional, stronger solutions can be used safely to bring the ultimate gleam to your smile.
  2. Fewer Risks – The chemicals used in teeth whitening can damage your teeth if you have any underlying problems, such as a cavity or worn tooth enamel. Some potential risks include irritated gums and permanently sensitive teeth. When you visit our highly experienced dentists at McElroy Smiles By Design, however, we will first provide you with a thorough dental exam to ensure that you can safely undergo teeth whitening.

Keep in mind that any restorative substances (dental fillings, dental veneers, or dental crowns) won’t respond to teeth whitening solutions. Before you undergo any teeth whitening procedure, we will discuss whether you would need to replace any of your restorations to ensure that your entire smile is uniformly white and bright.

Straighten Your Teeth & Improve the Look of Your Smile

Crooked teeth can affect your ability to chew, speak, and bite properly. It can also be difficult to clean crooked teeth perfectly, which may lead to decay and periodontal disease. Straightening your teeth not only improves the look of your smile, but it also improves its function. Our Encinitas cosmetic dentists are happy to offer Invisalign, the “invisible” way to straighten your teeth. Our dentists are certified Invisalign providers, with the skill and expertise to create truly exceptional results!
