At Green Dentistry in San Francisco CA, we get a lot of questions about our holistic philosophy. In short, it focuses almost entirely on the symbiosis between physical, dental, and mental health. People often wonder if, with such an all-points approach, there is any room for aesthetics. After all, a lot of our patients want to focus on how their teeth look, and for good reason. Teeth and smiles are one of our primary means of communication. Without them, we are bound to slip into depression and social anxiety.
So, of course we make room for your aesthetic needs. When you come in for a consult, we will focus on your dental, physical, and emotional needs when taking into consideration treatment. Procedures like tooth whitening, clear braces, and porcelain veneers aren’t just about the way you look; they’re about the way you feel. This is a crucial cornerstone in our approach to dental care: we acknowledge and respect the mind’s power over the body. Due to this, we encourage any and all procedures that can help you feel better about yourself and your dental health.
Cosmetic Dentistry Options
- Dental Veneers: Often called porcelain veneers, these top-of-the-line restorations can mask any inconsistencies in your smile. A layer of strong, durable material that perfectly mimics natural tooth enamel is layered over the tooth. Once veneers are in place, they provide a permanent fix to any aesthetic issues you might be facing.
- Tooth Whitening: With our in-office teeth whitening, you don’t have to worry about invasive procedures. Using natural agents that are not harmful to your oral biome, our team can brighten your teeth by several shades.
- Invisalign® Clear Braces: With this metal-free, non-invasive orthodontic options, you can straighten your teeth without the need for harmful alloys.
