Cosmetic Issues We Treat
It takes an experienced dentist to provide knowledgeable, personalized treatments for the many issues that can cause teeth to look less than their best. Some of the problems our San Diego patients frequently want to address include:
- Stained teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
- A “gummy” smile
- Teeth that are dull, worn, misshapen, or too long
- Missing teeth
- Overcrowding or gaps between teeth
- Worn out metal fillings
The cause and extent of these problems varies from patient to patient. Dr. Russell will perform a thorough exam so he can take all of these factors into account when suggesting treatment options.
Finding the Right Cosmetic Treatment Option
Whether you need a single straightforward procedure or a complete smile makeover to meet your goals, our cosmetic dentistry team will provide hands-on guidance to find the ideal solution for improving your smile. Because each patient is different, understanding your specific needs is critical to the success of your treatment plan.
Factors that will likely influence Dr. Russell’s recommendations include:
- Your oral health, including your teeth, gums, and more
- The cosmetic problem that makes you dissatisfied with your smile
