So whether you need a minor repair or your entire smile restored, TLC Family Dentistry is ready to help.
As we age, the wear and tear of using our teeth begin to take a toll. Our tooth enamel, worn by acidic foods and sugars, loses its white luster and becomes dingy and old-looking. The thinning enamel also makes our teeth more vulnerable to stains from coffee, tea, wine, and other foods.
Injuries or accidents may also damage your teeth. Broken teeth and chipped teeth not only make it hard to smile with confidence but also set your teeth up for further damage, including tooth decay.

Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening Treatments
Your best smile starts with beautiful white teeth. When it comes to your teeth, pearly whites are a sign of good health and youthfulness. Your cosmetic dentist at TLC Family Dentistry will evaluate your teeth first, measuring the color of your teeth and determining the health of your tooth enamel. Then, the correct teeth whitening treatment plan will give you your new smile.
The entire whitening procedure can take some time. First, you will brush your teeth with specially formulated toothpaste that prepares the tooth enamel for the treatment. Using this special toothpaste for one to two weeks before the whitening treatment will reduce tooth sensitivity and gum sensitivity so that they are not affected by the bleaching solution.
When it’s time for the in-office whitening treatments, special guards protect your gums and the bleaching solution applied to your teeth. Once used, a special LED light activates the bleaching solution and whitens your teeth.
If your tooth is damaged, leaving the surface chipped, or the edges break, dental bonding may repair your tooth and restore your smile. Dental bonding uses a composite resin. This tooth-colored resin is applied to the surface of the tooth and polished to form a new surface.
After the dentist prepares the tooth’s surface, the liquid bonding agent is applied, and the piece of composite resin on top of that. Next, the dentist carefully shapes the resin on your tooth, molding it to the shape and texture of your other teeth. When the resin hardens, the dentist will polish it until it’s shiny and white.
Another option for your chipped or broken teeth is porcelain dental veneers. Veneers may also be a better choice for your dull, dingy teeth than whitening. In addition, veneers are a great choice if you have minor cosmetic issues with your teeth that whitening cannot fix.
Dental veneers are a good choice for you if you have:
- Minor visible defects
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Darkened or severely discolored teeth
At TLC Family Dentistry in Huntington Beach, California, we are ready to help you choose the best type of dental veneer for your individual needs. All-porcelain veneers are tooth-colored and designed to custom-fit over your teeth.
Dental crowns work well for cosmetic dentistry as well as a dental restoration. Crowns are also the final step in root canal therapy, covering and protecting the repaired tooth while it heals.
Dental crowns can require several visits to complete, and porcelain crowns are an ideal choice if you need substantial cosmetic repairs and are allergic to metal.
Dental crowns are an essential part of dental implants for complete smile restoration. Dental implants are not used for cosmetic purposes, though they have apparent cosmetic benefits. These restore your smile when you have teeth missing. Fixed bridges of multiple dental crowns may be held by dental implant screws, repairing the area.
