The Basics of Cosmetic Dentistry
Enhancing the Teeth and Gums
Cosmetic dentistry addresses aesthetic concerns with the teeth and gums to improve the appearance of your smile. We use digital impressions and the latest technology in dentistry for your safety and convenience.
A Focus on Appearance over Function
Cosmetic dental care is focused on appearances. While a patient's dental health is always important to us, the primary goal of cosmetic dentistry is aesthetic enhancement. Patients should be in good health going into treatment.
Improving Patients' Confidence
Cosmetic dentistry makes a patient feels confident about laughing, smiling, and speaking. If you have a job that involves public interaction, this can take your career to the next level. Dentists can change people's lives for the better.
Concerns Cosmetic Dentists Can Treat
Chips, Cracks, and FracturesAll sorts of wear and tear can lead to damage to the teeth. There are numerous options for fixing dental fractures of all sizes. Our San Diego team can repair the damage and enhance your smile.
Tooth Size and Symmetry IssuesMany people suffer from crooked and uneven teeth. This can affect your dental health as well as aesthetics. Dentists can straighten poorly aligned teeth and achieve better smile symmetry.
Gummy SmilesYour gums are just as important as your teeth when it comes to smile aesthetics. Gummy smiles, gum recession, and other issues can be addressed by a dentist with an eye for soft tissue aesthetics.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Popular Smile Rejuvenation Options
Many of our favorite foods and beverages can cause stains. That may explain why teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Whitening at our San Diego office is far more effective than over-the-counter trays, strips, and toothpastes. A single teeth whitening visit can brighten your smile by several shades.
Dental bonding allows dentists to paint over imperfections that affect the teeth. Whether it's a stain, a chip, or a slight tooth gap, the durable tooth-colored resin can completely mask the concern. We carefully match the color of the bonding material to your existing tooth structure so it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Veneers are an extremely versatile cosmetic dentistry option. These thin, semi-translucent shells of dental ceramic can conceal all kinds of imperfections from view. Veneers essentially do the work of whitening, bonding, and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Just one or two veneers may be all a patient at our San Diego office needs for a better smile.
Severe decay and fractures can't be treated with veneers, bonding, or fillings. Instead, dentists will usually opt for crowns, which cap a severely damaged tooth. With CEREC Primescan, we can get a highly detailed intraoral image to help us create a custom crown. In fact, this technology helps us craft realistic same-day tooth-colored crowns.
Tooth loss can cause gaps in your smile, which can also impact your dental health. Dental implants can support crowns, bridges, and dentures, filling in gaps and giving you a beautiful, fully functioning smile. Thanks to CADCAM and 3D technology at our San Diego office, the oral surgery to place implants is safer than ever before.
When the gums dominate the appearance of your smile, a cosmetic dentist can revise the prominence of the gumline. Thanks to dental lasers and other advances in dentistry, our San Diego team can reshape soft tissue with minimal discomfort and a shorter recovery. This doesn't just improve the look of your smile–it can also improve your dental health in the process.
Whitening, veneers, and gum reshaping can only do so much. When it comes to problems related to malocclusion, orthodontic care is the best option for your appearance and long-term health. Using ClearCorrect or SureSmile® Invisible Aligners, Dr. Paulerio in San Diego can close gaps, rotate a twisted tooth, and improve the spacing of your smile.
We know you may have several dental issues, which is why our San Diego practice offers smile makeovers. This treatment plan combines multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments to revitalize a patient's appearance. Teeth whitening, veneers, and even dental implants can be used to fill gaps, lift stains, and leave a smile looking pristine. Smile makeovers can take months to complete, especially if implants are used, but the final results are nothing short of breathtaking.
