A white and winning smile serves you in many facets of life. If the teeth in your smile have staining issues, chips or other visible imperfection it can leave you feeling self-conscious. Fortunately, Dr. Yong Eon Park is well-versed in a wide range of cosmetic dentistry applications that can improve your smile and restore your self-confidence.

The best method for improving your smile hinges on a couple of key factors. If it’s the case that your teeth are merely stained, we can help you find the right tooth whitening products or treatments to whiten your smile.

The most effective method for whitening stained teeth is to have Dr. Yong Eon Park administer a dental bleaching treatment. This is the safest and most effective way to whiten stained tooth enamel. Afterward, you can use whitening toothpaste or whitening strips to maintain your smile’s luster between dental cleanings.

If the teeth also suffer from other imperfections such as visible fillings, chips or small fractures, Dr. Yong Eon Park might recommend restoring their appearance with dental veneers or a porcelain crown.

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are cemented onto the face of the teeth in your smile. If one or more of the teeth in your smile lacks the sufficient enamel to secure a dental veneer, Dr. Yong Eon Park might recommend a porcelain crown.

The porcelain material is not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This means you’ll be able to maintain your white and winning smile for longer.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you should call Dr. Yong Eon Park’s office in Bakersfield, California at 661.588.2772 to explore your cosmetic dentistry options.
