Confidence in our appearance is closely connected to our overall well-being. This does not mean everyone should strive for “perfection” as portrayed by the media, however, it does mean that we feel better when we address problems with our appearance.

Such is the role and function of cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry does indeed focus on aesthetics, but it also assists in improving oral function. Cosmetic dentistry treatments include:

• Tooth-colored fillings (composite fillings)
• Dental bonding
• Teeth whitening
• Soft tissue laser therapy
• Ceramic Crowns
Dental implants

Dr. Vu, an expert in the field of cosmetic dentistry, offers multiple cosmetic procedures to her patients in all three locations – Roseville, Sacramento, and Bruceville. Though the various therapies may improve the appearance of her patients’ smiles, Dr. Vu remains focused on longevity of treatment and long-lasting results.

Recent developments in treatments such as dental bonding, non-invasive laser treatments and replacing amalgam fillings with composite fillings, play important roles in improving your oral health. Ceramic crowns, for instance, don’t produce unsightly black lines, but are equally as able to protect teeth from damage as an amalgam filling would.

Some dental plans may even cover part of the cost of certain procedures, especially when the outcome benefits the overall health of your teeth and gums. Structural repair, such as crowns for instance, is often covered by dental plans for precisely this reason. Other procedures, such as teeth whitening, may not be covered by dental plans, but are more affordable these days, with the average cost running between $250-$900, depending on the extent of the treatments, location of treatment, and other factors.

Dr. Vu has a special interest in full-mouth reconstruction, oral implantology, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), neuromuscular disorder, as well as Invisalign®, Lumineers®, and laser dentistry.
