If you are in your junior year of high school, it is time to think ahead to your senior pictures. These are the pictures

that will remain in infamy in your school yearbook and looked at by all your friends for decades. This is not your

casual selfie, but something you want to really look amazing in. Your smile is the first thing people will notice in

your senior pictures, so visiting the dentist is the best way to improve how you look.

At Beach City Dental we can examine you in our cosmetic dentistry office and discuss what you don’t like about your

smile. If you have gaps between your teeth or they are crooked, stained, or misshapen, we can fix them in our Huntington

Beach, CA dental office. There are several ways we can address most aesthetic issues, so we will conduct an examination,

take x-rays, discuss the timeframe we are working with, and then present you and your parents a variety of options to

choose from. Since some have set time constraints, it is best to schedule your appointment with our 92647 office as soon

as possible. You can do so by calling (714) 898-2517.

® to Straighten Your Teeth

If your biggest concern is that your teeth are crooked, we can straighten them using Invisalign®. This is the best way

for you to straighten your teeth if you are worried about the appearance of traditional metal braces. The Invisalign®

aligners look like a full plastic retainer, and they surround your teeth completely. By placing pressure on specific

teeth, they gradually move them into the right position. Each aligner is worn for around two weeks before being switched

out for the next one in the series, and since you can do that at home, you will spend less time at our 92647 dental

office. The reason that our teenage patients love this option is because the aligners are removable. You can take them

out to eat, brush your teeth, play sports, go to a school dance, etc. This means you are in complete control of your

treatment and can still enjoy being a teenager without constantly worrying about your teeth. As long as you wear the

aligners for at least 20 hours a day, your treatment will progress on schedule.

When you visit our Huntington Beach dental office, we can examine you and let you know how long your Invisalign®

treatment will take. At Beach City Dental we find the average treatment time to be around a year and a half. The good

news is that if your teeth are not perfectly straight before your senior pictures, they will at least be straighter and

your smile more beautiful. Since the aligners are removable, simply take them out for your photos.

Dental Veneers to Give You a Flawless Smile

When you want a smile that rivals any Hollywood star, dental veneers are your best option. Dental veneers are thin

porcelain shells bonded to the surface of your prepared teeth. They essentially replace the outer layer of your teeth,

the enamel. Once bonded in place, all you see is the veneers and not the teeth beneath them. As a result, they can be

used to change the shape and size of your teeth so your smile is symmetrical. They can also close gaps in between your

teeth, cover dark stains, and make your teeth appear straight, even though their actual position has not changed. At

Beach City Dental we place dental veneers on a regular basis and with excellent results. During your first appointment

with our Huntington Beach office, we will make an impression of your teeth and take measurements in addition to

preparing your teeth. This requires us to remove a portion of your enamel so when the veneers are placed, they lay flat

and do not make your teeth appear overly large. We will then provide you with a set of temporary veneers to wear while

the lab completes the permanent ones. In a week or two, you will need to return to our office so your final set of

veneers can be bonded to your teeth. Since several appointments are required and your teeth will be sore for a few

weeks, you should schedule an appointment for around two months before your senior pictures. This way, your smile will

be beautiful, and you will be used to your veneers long before stepping in front of the camera. To schedule your

appointment, call (714) 898-2517.

Dental Bonding to Improve the Appearance of Your Teeth

If your senior pictures are just around the corner, the fastest way to improve the appearance of your smile is with

dental bonding. Unlike dental veneers, which can take a month, or Invisalign®, which can take a year, dental bonding can

be completed in one appointment. This is a non-invasive procedure that is completed chairside, meaning without help from

the dental lab. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will discuss the concerns you have about your teeth

and then strategize as to the best way to correct them. For example, if one tooth is longer than the rest, we could

shave off a portion of it and use dental bonding to contour it. If your teeth are yellow and severely stained, we can

place dental bonding material on top of them to cover these deep stains. We can even use bonding to close small gaps in

between your teeth, to restore teeth that have been cracked or chipped, and to change their overall shape and size.

Dental bonding material is incredibly diverse because once applied to prepared teeth, we can shape it right then and

there. Once it looks exactly right, we will harden it with a special dental light and you will be on your way. You can

have your senior pictures taken that week, and your smile will look amazing.
