This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The color, alignment, spacing, as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers,  and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.

In most cases just a whiter smile can make your smile more attractive. Our office offers two methods of whitening.

Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe and effective and takes just one visit. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to weeks of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. We often run Zoom! specials that make Zoom! affordable. In our office, with the purchase of Zoom! we include take home custom trays for you to maintain your new whiter smile.  If you have questions or are interested in Zoom! give our office a call and we would be glad to help you achieve the brightest smile you deserve.  (916) 683-8020

Zoom! is also a perfect gift:

  • The new graduate
  • The new bride and groom 
  • Birthdays and Holidays

The tray method involves having impressions taken in which fabricated custom trays are made.  DayWhite® gel is then placed into the trays and worn for 1 hour.  It is recommended that you wear the trays once a day for up to 3 weeks.

The end results whether using trays at home or doing Zoom! is the same. The cost of the tray method is about half compared to Zoom!.

Veneers are made out of porcelain that cover the front part of the tooth.  This will help to improve the color, shape, and size of your teeth in order to achieve the smile you want.  Veneers can correct many dental problems which include closing spaces and repairing teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or crooked. 

Getting veneers usually requires three visits. The first  is a consultation in which Dr. Hottinger will address what concerns you have with your teeth. This is the time where you will want to be very clear about the result you would like to achieve. X-rays and impressions may be needed.

The next visit will be to prepare the teeth. An impression will be taken and sent to a lab for fabrication of the veneers. It usually take 2-3 weeks to receive the veneers back from the lab. In the mean time you will be wearing temporary veneers.

The final visit will be to bond your new veneers in place. At this time you will be able to look at the veneers in place to examine the size, shape and color. Dr. Hottinger often suggests bringing a loved one to this visit as a second opinion.

Veneers are an important procedure that can make a difference in your self confidence. Therefore it is a committed, esthetically pleasing procedure in which Dr. Hottinger uses the best lab and materials to achieve your goal. We take pride in our work from the start by listening to your concerns, and doing what it takes to keep you comfortable.
