Teeth Whitening

A whiter and brighter smile is now possible with our professional office teeth whitening treatment. Due to soft drinks, coffee, tea, wine, smoking, and other substances, your teeth may no longer seem as white as you would like. With our in-office teeth whitening treatment, you can bring back that original brightness and shine of your teeth. Dr. Vu at A Center for Dental Excellence in San Jose can help you renew your teeth to their original appearance in a safe and professional manner. Contact us for a consultation.

Veneers are a good way to correct minor problems with your teeth. Veneers can correct teeth that are discolored, misshaped, or misaligned and are ideal for teeth that are too big, too small, or have misshaped surfaces. Porcelain veneers work by bonding a thin layer to the front of your existing teeth. A Center for Dental Excellence uses high quality porcelain veneers that look more natural and will last longer than lesser quality veneers. Each veneer is custom fitted to provide you with the most natural smile. If you’d like to know how dental veneers can help improve your smile, please contact us today.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. With implants, you do not have to worry about wearing dentures. Dental implants will replace your entire tooth as well as the root. Since dental implants mimic your natural teeth, they will give you a realistic smile without anyone knowing you have an implant. When complete, it will provide the same strength and functionality as a natural tooth, improving your chewing and comfort. Please contact us if you have questions about dental implant or would like a consultation.

Dental crowns are used to restore strength and appearance of broken or weakened teeth. A crown covers the tooth, strengthening as well as improving its cosmetic appearance. With the porcelain crowns available today, it will look completely natural and will be impossible to distinguish from natural teeth. To learn more about whether dental crowns are right for you, contact our office today.

Dental bridges provide the same functionality as an implant by replacing missing teeth. However, a dental bridge works by fusing the false tooth between existing teeth. The dental bridge gives a very natural appearance, fills in gaps to improve functionality, and helps to prevent surround teeth from getting misaligned. Contact us to see if dental bridges can help improve your smile.

Dentures are used to replace a greater number of teeth at once, restoring the functionality and cosmetic look. Full dentures can replace all of your teeth whereas partial dentures restore only the unhealthy teeth. There are several ways in which dentures can be attached, either to existing implants or with adhesives. If you would like more information on dentures, schedule an appointment to speak with Dr. Vu.

Dental bonding is similar to the use of clay. A composite resin is used to reshape and restore various aspects of your smile. It can be used to fix broken or chipped teeth, remove gaps, and cosmetically restore the shape and color of your smile. Bonding is a quick and affordable solution to your teeth imperfections. To learn more about bonding, contact Dr. Vu today.
