An individual's smile can say a great deal. A warm smile and a friendly handshake
have always been important ingredients to a successful professional. A great looking
smile could also be the spark that starts an important relationship. But what do
you do when your smile reveals a chipped tooth, an uneven bridge or stained teeth?
The dentists at Ocean View Dental have enhanced smiles for years through the use
of cosmetic dentistry. People are surprised and pleased at the difference a few
simple procedures can do for their appearance and self-esteem.
Many of our patients grow up with what most people call a problem mouth. They have
gaps and gaping holes between their teeth, resulting in a awkward-looking smile.
On a visit to Ocean View Dental many individuals take the opportunity to have their
teeth straightened without using braces. They may also have their teeth whitened
and gaps corrected with porcelain veneers. All cosmetic procedures are performed
in the comforts of our ultra-modern office.
It's amazing what a difference cosmetic dentistry can make in a person's life. Many
of our patients smile more often. The best part is the compliments they receive
from others. They feel like a million bucks and can feel more confident. A few simple
procedures can really make a difference. We have treated many patients with the
latest innovations in cosmetic dentistry. Today's high-tech procedures allow us
to strengthen teeth by grafting state-of-art materials to them. Unsightly colors
and tooth shades can be corrected using a variety of techniques, including changing
the color of the teeth through polishing and bleaching. To resurface the teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry has advanced to an art and has changed people's lives. Regardless
of who you are, every smile has a little room for improvement.

Zirconium Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges
We now offer crowns and bridges based on the ultra-strong NobelRondo Zirconia material.
Zirconium has many substantial advantages over other traditional dental materials:
it's more resistant to outside forces, has higher biocompatibility, and is more
resistant to fractures. Most importantly, the material looks so natural that it
would take an expert with a magnifying glass to figure out that you have a crown
or bridge! Traditional metal-based composite materials can't compete with the strength
and esthetic beauty of zirconium! What are you waiting for? It's time to go metal-free!
Same-day Crown Construction (in special situations)
In most dental offices, you will find that creating a crown is a timely procedure,
sometimes requiring multiple visits. At Ocean View Dental, we utilize our in-house

Current whitening techniques have proven safe and effective. The results are dramatic
in many cases. A popular tooth whitening method is an at-home process where soft

a tooth whitening agent, then worn for several hours during the day or while you

What can be done if I have missing teeth?
The two most popular methods for replacing one or more missing teeth are fixed bridges
and dental implants. Open spaces in your mouth caused by missing teeth destroy the
continuity of your smile. You probably are not aware that open spaces may cause
the surrounding teeth to twist, drift, or distort the way the upper and lower teeth
meet when you close your mouth. This change in the natural arch formed by your teeth
can cause other problems such as headaches, the need for orthodontic treatment,
periodontal disease, and even the removal of surrounding teeth.
Fixed bridges have been utilized for many decades to replace missing teeth, and
they continue to be a great choice for many patients. There are many types of fixed
bridges today. For replacing a single missing tooth, a bonded bridge is permanently
attached to the surrounding natural teeth. The bonded bridges uses a space-age adhesive
technology and provides a strong, beautiful, life-like appearance.
For replacing more that one missing tooth, a conventional bridge continues to be
a great option. It is constructed of natural looking porcelain fused on top of a
strong new material. Using a space-age adhesive technology, a conventional bridge
also provides a strong, beautiful, life-like appearance.
If you have missing teeth, we will help you decide which type of bridge best suits
What can be done if I have crooked or crowded teeth?
As time passes, teeth may naturally shift their positions. Older adults sometimes
discover that some teeth become unpleasantly crooked or crowded. In many cases,
porcelain veneers or composite bonding are great alternatives to conventional orthodontics
to improve the alignment of teeth and create a beautiful smile.
Crowded and crooked teeth can be quickly transformed into beautiful, straight smile
by covering the surfaces with thin pieces of porcelain or composite bonding. In
addition to correcting alignment, shape and color can be enhanced.
Porcelain veneers are proven, durable restorations. Their enamel-like appearance
is impressive. Porcelain veneers continue to be one of the primary techniques cosmetic
dentists use to achieve beautiful, natural appearing smiles.
What can be done if I have chipped, short, or worn teeth?
Teeth wear down as people age. The process can be accelerated if you grind your
teeth while you sleep or have any TMJ (jaw joint) problems.
Short, worn teeth can change facial features due to loss of vertical dimension (see
Glossary of Terms). This means that your upper and lower teeth have to travel further
to touch because they are shorter than before. Loss of vertical dimension makes
most people look older and can contribute to future TMJ problems. It can also affect
your ability to speak clearly.
Porcelain veneers, composite bonding, and crowns are ideal solutions for restoring
teeth to their youthful, natural size, shape, and color that makes you look and
What can be done if I have dark, unattractive fillings?
Natural, tooth colored fillings are becoming very popular because they blend almost
perfectly with your natural teeth. Even dentists often cannot distinguish them from
natural teeth! Their strength and durability usually exceed that of common dark
Relatively small areas are restored with a natural colored, composite material in
just one office visit.
Larger areas, and sometimes areas that previously contained dark metal fillings
may require two office visits. These areas are restored with either a porcelain
material or specially fabricated composite material.
