Teeth Whitening

Teeth get stained for a number of reasons such as tobacco use, drinking coffee or wine, aging, and inconsistent oral hygiene. At the Center for Advanced Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we offer teeth whitening services at our San Marcos or Rancho Bernardo offices. We give you customized take-home kits with professional-grade whitening products: DayWhite and NiteWhite. No matter which take-home kit you choose, our teeth whitening products will give you a sparkling smile! Learn more about teeth whitening.

Cosmetic Bonding

Dark spots, chips, yellowed enamel, gaps, misshapen teeth—all these cosmetic issues can impair your smile. The good news is that San Marcos and Rancho Bernardo cosmetic dentist Dr. Nelson Y. Howard can use tooth-colored bonding to affordably and conservatively repair minor cosmetic problems—usually in just one visit to either of our offices in Rancho Bernardo or San Marcos. Bonding is the consistency of putty, and it’s hand-sculpted to the tooth that needs cosmetic work. Then the bonding is hardened with a special light. Dr. Howard is one of the few dentists in the world to use an Argon gas composite curing laser light to harden the composite material to the precise light wavelength necessary for optimal curing and hardness. His results are phenomenal!

Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes your teeth have so many cosmetic problems that you don’t know where to begin when you think about improving your smile. However, there is a single cosmetic dental procedure that can give you a dazzling smile in just two treatment visits to the Center for Advanced Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry. Porcelain veneers are thin laminates, or custom made and shaped layers of dental porcelain (glass) bonded/adhered to the fronts of your teeth. They can cover stains, cracks, chips, discolorations—and can even correct crowded or crooked teeth! Read more about porcelain veneers!
