FAQs


How can I improve my smile?

That sounds like an easy question to answer, but it isn't! Your smile is unique, and we won't compromise your individuality with smile enhancements. Smile design dentistry done right requires an initial consultation in which we will discuss your goals, preferences, and options for care. Generally speaking, Dr. Hong or Dr. Lam may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, all-white restorations, and/or replacement teeth. After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we'll present a smile makeover plan for your new smile. We offer digital imaging for smile previews, as well.

I have old, dark fillings. Is there any hope for my smile?

Dark fillings and metal crowns can be replaced with strong, esthetic solutions. Our dentists have placed composite resin fillings and non-metal crowns for years. If a dark filling is too large, however, a porcelain filling or a crown may be recommended.

My smile is missing teeth. What do you suggest I do?

You'll need to first schedule a consultation with one of our dentists for an assessment of your oral health and to discuss options for replacement teeth. In general, you can choose from dental bridges, partial or full dentures, or dental implants. As the most natural prosthetic to natural tooth structure, a dental implant offers the most long-lasting, comfortable, natural-looking choice.
