Cupertino Teeth BleachingThe effectiveness of teeth bleaching depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the simplest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and drinks like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Unfortunately, even if you prevent these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for some individuals.

Intrinsic tooth stains ensue from the inside out. Tooth injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove entirely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening available at your cosmetic dental office.

If your teeth are darkened, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call Floor Dental Group at 408-255-4500. We have treated many patients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to beautify your smile.

Men and women can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed. Teens and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with tooth bleaching.

At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA, our cosmetic dental smile makeover patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a beneficial investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, attractive smile cannot be measured in dollars. We recognize, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.

Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to upgrade your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.

Dental Bonding
In many cases, dental bonding can be used to repair a tooth that has been chipped.

When we repair a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. We expertly molds the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, we perform any required trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.

Dental bonding is usually less costly than porcelain veneers or dental crowns.

Beware of brand-new  practices that advertise very low prices for dental bonding, veneers, or dental implants. The proficiency and artistic ability necessary to attain minuscule tolerances should not be undertaken by a beginner. Thoroughly research any new cosmetic dentist you are considering for any cosmetic dental procedures or complete cosmetic dental smile makeover.

Tooth Whitening
Most  people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening methods. We recommend scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and result in tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and uneven coloration.

Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you choose an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to attain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more economical in the long run.

We at Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA can give you a stunning smile. We serve patients in Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale and also provide implants and general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

Cosmetic dentistry at Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA is part science and part art. Our objective is creating positive changes to the teeth and smiles of our patients.

In order to achieve an attractive, yet natural looking result, we do more than recommend specific procedures. We consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. In order to create a balanced look, the facial shape and skin tone is taken into account. The patient’s age, health condition and lifestyle all influence the plan.

In other words, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. Smile enhancement through cosmetic dentistry can have dramatic results in your overall appearance. Even one procedure, such as teeth whitening, can make a big difference in how you see yourself.

Your teeth take a lot of wear and tear over the years, but cosmetic dentistry from Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA can restore your smile’s youthful appearance. People from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale also come to our office for general and preventative dentistry. Contact us today!

Sparkling smiles are more attractive than dull and yellow ones: you won’t get much disagreement there. Everybody likes to see a pleasing smile, and having beautiful teeth is also good for your self esteem. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA, we create sparkling smiles every day with cosmetic dentistry.

Unfortunately our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but we see staining on young patients, too. To protect teeth from staining, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.

A great smile is a huge asset. It’s how we express a range of emotions without saying a word. Our goal is to draw your teeth and facial structure into harmony, so that you are able to present the world with the best possible you.

At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we create sparkling smiles with teeth whitening every day. People from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Schedule an appointment with us today!

At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA, we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. From the questions that some patients ask, though, it seems there are some myths about what cosmetic dentistry can and cannot do. So we’re using this blog post to clear up a few of them.

Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many “cosmetic” dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Procedures such as tooth replacement prevent potential issues like tooth movement, bone loss, and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many advantages. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Teeth Whitening is as Effective as Professional Whitening

Commercially purchased whitening systems cannot compare to professional-strength teeth whitening treatments. They may remove surface stains, but do not provide the best results.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Invisalign® clear braces can transform a smile, even in adults. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, porcelain veneers can reshape your teeth and help you get a beautiful smile.

At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA, we want the best possible smiles for all of our patients, who come to us from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Contact us today!

Americans spend millions of dollars every year on teeth whitening products. Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth, and it’s easy to see why: a healthy, white smile is pleasing to see on others, and an asset in social and professional settings. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA, we can help you get the smile of your dreams.

Have you been down the oral care aisle at the store lately? There is so much to choose from. There are toothpastes and whitening strips and mouth rinses, and gels that you wear overnight. What these products have in common is a bleaching agent that works on the surface stains of your teeth. To be fair, some do a pretty good job whitening teeth. But who wants to settle for “pretty good”?

Toothpaste

Whitening toothpastes can remove minor stains, but don’t do much to change the overall color of your teeth. The whitening agents in them are not potent enough.

Whitening Strips

Whitening strips have a couple of drawbacks. Here too, the whitening agent it is not very potent. They also do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface.

Teeth Whitening Gels

Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with whitening gels is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is more likely to slide off.

Professional-grade teeth whitening at Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA can whiten teeth by several shades in a single office visit. It is the safest, most convenient way to achieve a fabulous white smile. People from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale also come to our practice for additional cosmetic dentistry services.

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA may be just what what you need.

Of course, there are plenty of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: every major brand of toothpaste, it seems, offers a whitening version.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. They do a fairly good job, and the abrasives in them are no harder on tooth enamel than ordinary toothpastes. However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Professional whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. We have two options:  Zoom!® in-office teeth whitening, and a set of take-home trays. Both are safe and effective. The in-office version can whiten your smile in just one visit!

Professional teeth whitening at Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA is just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. People throughout Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale trust us with their smiles. Contact us today!
