Cosmetic Dentist – Dr. George Chen – Esthetic Reflections

It’s one thing to care for your smile. It’s another to be confident in it. As teeth get older and damaged they may begin to start to stain, crack, chip, or decay in ways that affect the look of your smile, and no one should have to hide their smile from the world.

Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry is led by Dr. George Chen, a Folsom cosmetic dentist voted “Best Dentist” in Style Magazine 9 years in a row. Dr. Chen is joined by Dr. Christina Skelton, and together the two of them provide cosmetic dentistry services to help rebuild smiles for healthier and happier lives for patients in Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Granite Bay, Rancho Cordova, and the rest of the Sacramento area.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on the visual appearance of your teeth and restoring the natural beauty and shape of your smile. It has many functional benefits as well, including improving your bite and protecting against further tooth damage. But for many, the motivation to seek out cosmetic dentistry lies in making sure that you can smile with confidence and feel comfortable with your teeth once again.

How we approach your cosmetic dentistry services depends on each patient, depending on the appearance you and Dr. Chen hope to achieve. Dr. Chen is also an expert  in “complex cases,” which means that those with more advanced cosmetic and functional challenges can have all their needs addressed and planned from the start.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services at Esthetic Reflections

The best way to learn about our services is to contact us for an appointment. In the meantime, feel free and explore the following to learn more about several of our services.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Metal braces are an effective way to straighten teeth. But they are also large, visible, uncomfortable, and can scratch the cheeks or gums. Invisalign uses clear aligners that are nearly invisible to the naked eye and can be taken out whenever you need to eat. They are one of the most popular alternative forms of orthodontics and a great cosmetic tool for creating a straighter smile.

Zoom Whitening

Even the best cared for teeth can become stained and lose their sharp color. The Zoom Whitening System is one of the most popular and effective tools currently available for immediate brighter, whiter teeth while you relax in our comfortable dental chair. Perfect for patients that have recently taken off their braces or those that want to achieve a whiter smile.

Learn more about our teeth whitening programs.

CEREC Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are both a general and cosmetic dentistry technique and are often important for repairing missing or cracked teeth. The CEREC system is one of our most exciting. This advanced digital technology can create a beautiful tooth colored crown as you wait, rather than require you to put in a temporary crown and come back a few weeks later.

Learn more about our CEREC system and dental crowns.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures currently available. Veneers are a thin form of artistic porcelain that bonds to teeth to make them appear beautiful, whiter, and healthy. They look and feel natural, are durable enough to last for years when properly maintained, and are especially popular with celebrities and those looking for a complete smile makeover to boost their self-image and raise their self-confidence.

Learn more about our porcelain veneers.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are two similar procedures used in both cosmetic and general dentistry. They are often used to cover large cavities. They are a lab-made cover that is designed to fit over the cavity and reestablishes the shape and function of a regular tooth. They fit into the grooves and are cemented in place, and give your teeth a healthier appearance when you smile. They are similar in many ways to a dental filling, but are more common when a tooth has experienced significant damage and would benefit from a more durable larger cover.

Learn more about our inlays and onlays.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an alternative to veneers that is becoming increasingly popular for those that prefer a bit of a simpler procedure for their cosmetic dentistry needs. With dental bonding, a resin is applied to the teeth. The resin is tooth colored, so it covers your teeth and gives them a healthier color. A specific light is then shined upon the teeth which solidifies them. Dental bonding can last for over a decade if properly maintained and can be completed within only one visit.  

Learn more about bonding and how it benefits your teeth.

Dental Implants, Sedation Dentistry, and More

Many general dentistry procedures are also outstanding tools for aesthetic dentistry. For example, our dental implants may be beneficial if you are missing a tooth, and tooth extractions may be a useful way to remove problem teeth before placing an implant. We are also one of the few providers of sedation dentistry in Sacramento county, so those that have dental anxiety and dental fear can still receive a cosmetic dentistry or general dentistry treatment.

NOTE: If you are not yet a current patient with our general dentistry practice, Dr. Chen and Dr. Skelton may first require a consultation and a new patient exam before getting started.
