Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Bonding, Porcelain Veneers and Crowns, and More for Cypress and all of Orange County

While cosmetic dentistry was once reserved for celebrities, it is becoming increasingly popular among a wide range of people. It is now used by people from all walks of life to improve their self-image and self-confidence. Dr. Ty Caldwell and Dr. Susan Caldwell offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures including teeth whitening, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers and crowns. In northwest Orange County, our office is a leading choice among cosmetic dentistry patients. We also offer restorative dental care, including dental implants, for those patients with more complex dental needs.

Exceptional cosmetic dentistry results can have a huge impact on your business affairs or romantic relations. At Caldwell D.D.S., we offer the following cosmetic dentistry solutions to help you achieve the smile you desire.


Porcelain Veneers

To correct cracked, chipped, uneven, or badly stained teeth, we offer porcelain veneers at our Orange County practice. These ultra-thin, super-strong sheets of modern acrylic enamel are applied to the front teeth to create a uniform, brilliant smile. For patients whose teeth are slightly misaligned, porcelain veneers, sometimes called "instant orthodontics" can be an alternative to more expensive and complicated teeth -straightening procedures such as Invisalign®.

Porcelain veneers require two visits to our Orange County office, located in Cypress. During the first visit, photographs and measurements will be taken and the surface of the teeth will be prepared for impressions. A very thin layer of enamel will be removed with a light buffing. Your new porcelain veneers will function to replace your natural tooth enamel. Once your teeth have been buffed, our cosmetic dentist will create an impression of them so that the porcelain veneers both fit teeth and complement the appearance of your mouth.

During the second visit, our cosmetic dentist will match your new porcelain veneers to the color of your existing teeth; then securely affix them using a strong dental adhesive and a special light. Once your porcelain veneers are in place, you can enjoy straight, white teeth and a radiant smile.


Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are available to our Orange County patients as an attractive answer to teeth with large cracks or missing pieces. Unlike traditional gold crowns, they are virtually indistinguishable from adjacent teeth.

A crown is a partial tooth replacement designed to fit over a damaged tooth to avoid removal of the tooth and the resulting weakening of the jawbone. First the damaged tooth is reshaped to provide a base; then the crown is fitted and held firmly in place with a special dental adhesive.

Traditional gold crowns provide a good functional replacement for the damaged tooth, but are very conspicuous and can flaw an otherwise beautiful smile. To preserve your smile, Drs. Ty and Susan Caldwell offer porcelain crowns at our Orange County practice. They will evaluate each case and recommend either a crown made entirely of porcelain, or a crown of porcelain over a metal base. Either type can be crafted in the correct shade to match the surrounding teeth and give you aesthetically pleasing cosmetic dentistry results.

For truly natural-looking porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers, patients in Orange County; including Cypress, Buena Park, La Palma, Los Alamitos, and Rossmoor have come to entrust Drs. Ty and Susan Caldwell with their smiles. Contact our cosmetic dentist team today to arrange a cosmetic dentistry appointment.


Invisalign®

If you desire straight, evenly aligned teeth, but are hesitant about the conspicuousness of traditional brackets and wires, then the Invisalign® system may be for you. We are happy to provide this nearly invisible alternative to metal braces; Invisalign® clear aligners gradually and comfortably move teeth into the correct position.


Tooth-Colored Fillings

An otherwise beautiful smile can be spoiled by old-fashioned silver amalgam fillings. Drs. Ty and Susan Caldwell can replace these old dark fillings with new tooth-colored fillings made of modern acrylic or porcelain materials that can be custom tinted to provide an exact match to the surrounding teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are just as easy to apply as silver amalgam fillings and designed to last for many years. In fact, tooth-colored fillings are more durable than metal fillings and provide greater support and protection for your teeth. If you have old metal fillings or need new fillings, our Orange County practice can provide you with natural-looking tooth-colored fillings.


ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening

For patients who have healthy teeth that just need to be a little brighter, Drs. Ty and Susan Caldwell offer the ZOOM!® teeth whitening system. During treatment, a proprietary prescription-strength peroxide solution is applied to the teeth, and then activated with a special treatment light to provide a smile up to 10 shades brighter in just under an hour. Because it is a quick and simple procedure, many of our patients are able to schedule teeth whitening over an extended lunch break.


Cosmetic Computer Imaging

To ensure the maximum possible benefit from cosmetic dentistry procedures, Drs. Ty and Susan Caldwell employ computer imaging. Once detailed pictures of the mouth have been taken, computer software allows them to create images that demonstrate how various procedures can change your smile. Using this powerful tool, the doctors can help you decide on the best plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.


Dental Bonding

Teeth that have only minor flaws can often be successfully treated with dental bonding at our northwest Orange County practice in Cypress. During an initial consultation, one of our cosmetic dentists will evaluate your tooth damage and make recommendations for further treatment, which may include dental bonding for one or more of your teeth. Once the dentist has determined the best treatment plan for you, your dental bonding treatment can begin.

Dental bonding is a relatively quick and easy procedure. During dental bonding, the surface of the tooth is cleaned with a special solution and an acrylic substance is applied and sculpted as it hardens to a natural-looking, smooth finish. In addition to repairing minor cracks and chips, dental bonding can be used to make minor modifications to the shape of the tooth. If more shaping is indicated than dental bonding can achieve, Drs. Ty and Susan may recommend porcelain veneers.

Best of all, dental bonding takes only one visit to our Orange County practice, making it perfect for patients whose smiles need just a quick, easy touchup. With dental bonding, your damaged teeth can be repaired so that they look uniform, healthy, and white.


BOTOX® Cosmetic

In addition to quality cosmetic dentistry options, Dr. Susan Caldwell offers the popular BOTOX® treatment for facial rejuvenation. As an experienced dentist, Dr. Caldwell has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy, and can utilize that knowledge to administer the age-reversing BOTOX® treatment. If you are interested in eliminating wrinkles or lines, BOTOX® treatment may be for you.
