If you are considering transforming your smile with cosmetic dentistry, don't just go with any dentist. Choose a cosmetic dentist with optimal education, experience, and expertise – someone like Dr. Nicole Vane.
Dr. Vane is a member of the AACD and has undergone extensive training with Spear, one of the nation's most respected dental education organizations, to perfect her technique in smile design. Not only that, but she’s been trained and certified by one of the dental industry’s leading aesthetic institutes, The Hornbrook Group.
Dr. Vane is dedicated to keeping herself updated on the latest advancements in dentistry, and utilizes cutting-edge techniques and technologies for smile design and transformation. She has performed countless cosmetic dental procedures during her career, and is proud to bring her expertise to you, so you can achieve the smile of your dreams!
Dr. Vane loves doing thorough consultations to help her patients get a comprehensive look at their teeth and gums. During the consult, she'll review your 3D imaging, 3D models, and intraoral photography. Most patients have never been able to view their mouths from an in-depth, 3D perspective. It makes a world of difference when planning out your dream smile. All treatment will be reviewed in the privacy of a treatment suite, or in our consultation room.
Clear aligner technology has come a long way. If you’ve always wanted straight teeth but never wanted the old-fashioned chrome braces, your Encinitas dentist offers Invisalign!
Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss your teeth like you normally would for better oral hygiene. Plus, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods (as long as you remove your aligners before doing so!). Dr. Vane is an expert at using clear aligners to balance the bite and create the most conservative approach to smile design and cosmetic makeovers.
Schedule a consultation today to find out if Invisalign can help you achieve a healthier, straighter smile.
Whitening your teeth doesn't have to be a long, difficult process. In fact, we’d argue that it’s one of the easiest ways to renew your smile confidence.
At Moonlight Beach Dental, we use KöR Whitening, a high-end take-home whitening gel. This product contains no bleach, rather, it is a carbamide peroxide solution that bubbles the stain out of the pores in your enamel, causing your teeth to whiten by 2-8 shades.
You will be given 2-4 tubes of 15-20% strength whitening solution to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home!
Want to completely transform your smile? Veneers are a great option! If you are concerned about the size, shape, position, or color of your teeth, porcelain veneers can help you achieve a beautiful, flawless, and natural-looking smile.
Dr. Vane believes in dental veneers so much that she herself has been a patient. She can consult from the perspective of a patient, as well as offer her professional expertise.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that also has restorative benefits because it can improve the appearance of your teeth and repair damage or a loss of tooth structure.
Whether you want to change the appearance of your teeth or repair eroded enamel, bonding is a simple and cost-effective way to rebuild the tooth structure with aesthetics in mind.
Gum contouring and bonding usually go hand-in-hand to help patients achieve confidence in their smiles! Paired with bonding, Dr. Vane can reshape and sculpt your teeth and gums with her high-powered laser to seamlessly craft your dream smile.
The laser can remove tissue and bone to level the tissue display of the teeth and reduce asymmetry. It painlessly vaporizes tissue for a long-term lasting result to give a broader, more even smile, without painful surgery.
With same-day CAD/CAM smiles, we are able to completely transform your smile in just one day. When you meet with Dr. Vane, she will review your smile goals, come up with a personalized plan, and can transform your smile in just a few hours.
With digitalized and innovative technology we are able to show you what your smile is going to look like before we even begin.
Our priority is to keep you informed, every step of the way. Here are a few questions that our patients frequently ask.
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there are several popular procedures that can help enhance your smile and boost your confidence. One of the most sought-after treatments is teeth whitening. Over time, our teeth can become stained or discolored due to various factors such as aging, smoking, or consuming certain foods and beverages. Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to remove these stains and brighten your smile. Whether you choose an in-office treatment or an at-home whitening kit, you can expect noticeable results and a whiter, more youthful-looking smile.
Another popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is dental veneers. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to correct a variety of dental issues, including chips, cracks, gaps, and discoloration. Veneers are a versatile option that can completely transform the look of your smile, giving you a natural-looking, flawless set of teeth.
The cost of cosmetic dentistry treatments can vary depending on the specific procedure and the complexity of your case. While some treatments may be more expensive than others, it's important to remember that cosmetic dentistry is an investment in yourself and your confidence. The benefits of a beautiful smile can extend beyond just aesthetics, as it can also improve your overall oral health and self-esteem.
During your initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals, and provide you with a personalized treatment plan. They will also go over the associated costs and any available financing options. Many dental practices offer flexible payment plans to help make cosmetic dentistry more affordable for their patients.
After undergoing cosmetic dentistry treatments, it's important to maintain good oral hygiene practices to ensure the longevity of your results. Here are some tips to help you take care of your smile:
1. Brush and floss regularly: Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to remove plaque and prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
2. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush: Opt for a soft-bristle toothbrush to avoid damaging your teeth or gums. Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed.
3. Avoid staining substances: Limit your consumption of foods and beverages that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries. If you do indulge in these substances, rinse your mouth with water afterward or brush your teeth to minimize staining.
4. Schedule regular dental check-ups: Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health. Your dentist will monitor the condition of your teeth and address any issues before they worsen.
5. Wear a mouthguard: If you participate in sports or grind your teeth at night, wearing a mouthguard can help protect your teeth from damage.
By following these guidelines and maintaining a consistent oral care routine, you can enjoy the benefits of your cosmetic dentistry treatments for years to come.
Remember, if you have any concerns or questions about your post-treatment care, don't hesitate to reach out to your dentist. They will be more than happy to provide you with personalized advice and guidance.
