  • Enjoy a Spectacular Smile with Our Personalized Treatment

    Although your dental health is most important to us, we want you to feel confident about your appearance, as well. For this reason, Dr. Yum offers a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Each treatment will be customized to meet your needs and give you the stellar smile you dream of.

    Our Cosmetic Treatment Options

    Here at Redmond Dental Care, Dr. Yum and his team offer a full selection of cosmetic treatments. The dentist will provide a complete consultation to explain each option and help you select one or more procedures that will address your individual concerns. Your choices include:

    • Teeth Whitening: Powerful whitening gel can reduce the dental stains that result from food, smoking, and environmental factors. The treatment can often lighten your smile by six shades or more.
    • Veneers: Porcelain shells affix to the front of your teeth to cover dramatic stains, small chips, and other flaws. Custom-crafted to match your smile, veneers can also reshape and resize your teeth.
    • Bonding: By coating your teeth in color-matched composite resin, Dr. Yum can perform many of the same functions that he can with porcelain veneers. Bonding may be a great alternative to veneers if you are watching budget.
    • Crowns: Although dentists typically use crowns to repair damaged teeth, a lifelike porcelain crown can also enhance a misshapen or otherwise flawed tooth.
    • Invisalign®: These clear braces are comfortable and virtually invisible. They can enhance the look of your smile and correct mild to moderate bite alignment.
    • Ceramic inlays and onlays: If you have an aesthetically compromised molar or an obvious metal filling, you may opt for an inlay or onlay. These restorations will fit over the chewing surfaces of your back teeth.

    No matter which treatment you choose, you will benefit from our biomimetic techniques. When placing crowns or veneers, Dr. Yum will use minimal-prep or no-prep techniques to preserve as much of your teeth as possible.

    The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

    There are a number of reasons to consider cosmetic treatment. Our personalized care can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. Because we use hand crafted restorations and advanced dental materials, your cosmetic enhancements will be virtually identical to your natural dental enamel. Thanks to our meticulous treatment, you may also look significantly younger following your care. In turn, you will feel more self-confident. You may even feel more prepared to take on leadership roles in the workplace or engage in a wider range of social settings.

    Cosmetic Dentistry Candidates

    If any of the following cosmetic flaws have affected your smile, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic treatments:

    • Discoloration
    • Gaps between teeth
    • Cracked or chipped teeth
    • Enamel erosion or uneven edges
    • Unusually small or irregularly shaped teeth

    To be considered for cosmetic care, you should not have any untreated decay or gum disease.
