Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. A “smile makeover” improves the appearance of your smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dr. Meza will work with you to develop a treatment plan.
The process starts with a comprehensive exam and consultation with Dr. Meza. Where you’ll talk about your biggest concerns and what is needed to overcome them. Next you will have a prep visit entailing impression taking and adjustments. When your new veneers are ready, they will be placed and your new smile will be all set.
For the best long-term results, be sure to floss around your veneers daily. Wearing a night guard or splint can help you avoid unwanted chipping while you sleep. After care will be discussed more extensively at your placement visit.

During the first phase of treatment a small titanium post is placed into the jawbone. After the post has integrated with the bone, Dr. Meza will attach a custom tooth created from an impression of your bite, onto the post. Once teeth are in place, they are there to stay making your smile complete.
Tooth loss can affect many things such as your speech, ability to chew comfortably, the appearance of your smile and jaw, and the overall health of your mouth. If you require a bridge, we will take an impression of your mouth to assure the correct bite. The bridge will then be constructed by one of our trusted outside labs. Once we have our final product, we’ll make sure it fits perfectly and discuss how to properly care for your new smile.
A partial denture replaces missing teeth when there are still some natural teeth remaining, where as a complete denture replaces all teeth. Typically, a denture is a removable appliance but, in some cases, they can be combined with implants for a more secure fit.
Dr. Meza can discuss with you your options and what is best for you and your oral health.
