Smile Makeover by Cosmetic Dentistry San Jose

Smile can be the most crucial feature of your personality since it is one of the first things people notice when during a meeting. For the smile to be attractive, the teeth should be well-aligned, bright and perfectly shaped, the gums and the lips should look healthy and nice. When there is a deviation even in one of these factors, the smile turns out to be less attractive. A cosmetic dentist is someone who is capable of analyzing the various physical aspects of a smile to identify minor esthetic problems and recommend suitable cosmetic solutions. The knowledge of esthetics of the smile, awareness of the latest technologies and how they can be used to the fullest and the artistic skills are factors that can differentiate one cosmetic dentist from another. If you are a resident of San Jose, California or surrounding communities and looking for a smile makeover, visit our dental office. Our cosmetic dentist welcomes patients of all age groups. Dr. Mervyn Chang has several years of experience in cosmetic dentistry and treating a wide-range of dental problems of patients. Speak to our dentist and our dedicated team can come out with the perfect smile makeover plan for you.

How to analyze your smile?

Though beauty is an individual’s perception, there are few things that can make a smile more/less admirable. These physical features can be the deciding factors of how attractive the smile is. During a smile analysis, our cosmetic dentist asks questions related to what patients expect from the treatment and what is that they do not like about their smile. We take pictures and impressions of your teeth. We make a note of what changes have to be done and explain the treatment options to our patients. Following are some of the key factors that check.

  • The color of teeth and how well it goes with color of skin
  • The alignment of teeth
  • We look for chips and cracks in teeth if there are any
  • Gaps between Teeth
  • Amount of gums visible when smiling
  • Length and proportions of front teeth

What we do to improve your smile?

As stated above, the first step in cosmetic dentistry treatment is to perform thorough smile analysis. After examining teeth and gums, our cosmetic dentist recommends treatment based on the needs of the patient. It may be a single procedure or a combination of different procedures. The skills of our cosmetic dentist are visible in the outputs that we achieve. It is important for patients to try and note down those factors that they do not like about their smile. After setting a treatment plan, we explain the treatment options and why they are necessary. We provide the patient with the resources to make an informed decision. Following are some of the cosmetic dentistry treatment processes we commonly perform at our office.

Porcelain Crowns

Every cosmetic procedure need not essentially be recommended for pure cosmetic purposes. The advancement in dental technology has allowed dental professionals to make use of latest restorative and corrective methods that benefit both the oral health and the beauty of the smile. Porcelain crown is one such restoration that has both esthetic and functional benefits. The crowns made of porcelain reflect more light and look very natural. Most often, porcelain crowns are recommended to restore visible front teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of porcelain. These shells can be effectively used to reshape the front teeth and mask the errors. They are recommended when the teeth are short, when there are gaps between teeth, when the teeth are discolored or when the teeth are misshapen.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a technique where the resin material is used to reshape chipped or misshapen front teeth. This method is suitable when one or two front teeth need to reshaped. This process can be complete in a single visit.


Invisalign aligners are an advanced way to straighten teeth. The treatment involves use of virtually invisible aligners to move crooked teeth in planned direction. When the teeth are straighter and well-aligned, the smile looks more attractive. Since the aligners are virtually invisible, the patient may not have to feel embarrassed about his/her orthodontic treatment.

Dental Braces

Dental Braces have been a powerful tool in treating orthodontic problems. The smile achieved by straightening teeth is priceless. The treatment can give more self-confidence to a patient to smile openly. By curing orthodontic problem, dental braces also improve oral health.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth colored fillings are restoration materials used to fill cavities and protect teeth. The fact that the fillings match the natural color of teeth can make the patients feel comfortable since they can smile more openly without having to be conscious about their restoration which is the case with amalgam and gold fillings.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a procedure that clears the stain from the enamel layer of teeth to make the teeth look more bright and healthy. When the teeth are white, the person may look young and more attractive. Brightness of teeth is one of the important esthetic features of a smile.
