Dr. Karim Naguib and his professional team provide comprehensive and comfortable cosmetic dentistry and treatment options to patients in the Lancaster and Palmdale areas. Addressing the appearance of your smile can help you improve your confidence in your smile. In addition, cosmetic solutions support your long term dental health and wellness. Our team can recommend treatment solutions such as:
Invisalign: Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces that gradually straightens crooked teeth. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners that shift teeth over a series of months. Invisalign is often heralded as a faster and more comfortable alternative to metal braces. Traditional metal braces can pinch the gum tissue surrounding teeth. The average time of treatment with Invisalign is twelve months or less. The aligners used in Invisalign treatment are also clear so they are less noticeable than traditional braces.
Lumineers: Discolored, chipped, or crooked teeth can be treated with Lumineers. For this solution, teeth are then moderately etched to prepare for placement and then bonded one by one. Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers that look and feel like natural teeth. They are made of thin shells that are custom-fit to your specifications.
Orthodontics: Dr. Naguib offers metal braces, retainers, nightguards, custom sports mouthguards, and Invisalign to patients who want teeth that are straighter and more properly aligned. Our dental staff can diagnose and prevent problems associated with malpositioned teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are made up of a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of teeth. The shape, shade, and position of the veneers can be changed to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. Veneers can also be used to restore lost tooth structure. Because porcelain veneers are thin, they are one of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available to patients. Like lumineers, porcelain veneers are bonded to the tooth structure to strengthen them.
Tooth Bonding: Do you have stained or discolored teeth and want a quick dental treatment that will brighten your smile? Tooth bonding can lighten the appearance of teeth by several shades. Using a composite resin that is adhered to and shaped to teeth, tooth bonding can last patients for years with proper dental care. Chipped, cracked, stained, fractured, discolored, and misshapen teeth can be treated with tooth bonding. This treatment can also be used to stabilize the tooth root for a healthier tooth structure. The tooth structure is integral to the health of teeth and gums and helps teeth withstand biting and chewing forces.
Tooth Whitening: If you have yellowed, darkened, or stained teeth, call our office today. Our professional staff offers teeth whitening treatment that improves the aesthetics and health of patient’s smiles. Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of factors such as age, smoking habits, staining foods and drinks, and certain medications. These effects may be reversed with the correct treatment. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that doesn’t damage teeth or gums. Bleaching agents that are crafted with tooth sensitivity in mind are painless while providing long-lasting results.
