Cosmetic Dentistry in Loomis
Refresh Your Appearance with Cosmetic Dentistry from Dr. Mercer!
There have been many advances in dental care over the years.

Dr. Mercer can help you improve your self-image with one of these cosmetic dentistry techniques. Just call us today to set up a cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Loomis office.
Teeth whitening can lift stains from enamel. Normal brushing and flossing won’t be enough to lighten a smile. We have teeth whitening procedures available to help brighten your look and increase your self-confidence. We have Boost for our in-office treatments and Opalescence for our take-home teeth whitening kits. We can’t wait to help you enhance your smile with this cosmetic dentistry solution.
Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry technique used to create the appearance of a seamless smile. When a tooth is chipped or cracked, we can place a veneer (a thin, tooth-shaped piece of dental porcelain) over the affected area. This cosmetic dentistry solution won’t stain either, so after you’ve received your porcelain veneer, feel free to keep sipping coffee as often as you’d like!

Bonding and shaping are techniques used to fill in minor chips, cover stains, and even reduce gaps that may form between teeth. We use a dental resin during this cosmetic dentistry treatment, and we’ll match it to the color of your existing enamel to enhance your image. This is the same high quality composite resin we use to repair damaged and decayed teeth with dental fillings. The process is quick, comfortable, and completed in just one appointment. We simply apply an etchant material to the tooth or teeth we’re treating. Then, we apply the putty-like composite directly onto the tooth and shape it into place. Finally, we use a curing light to harden the material into position, leaving patients with gorgeous smiles.
While the most important aspect of dental restorations is to replace lost or damaged tooth structure and restore the full function of the bite, the appearance of teeth following this repair matters too. Dr. Mercer will take into account the potential cosmetic impact of any treatment he provides. One way we’re able to provide cosmetically flawless restoration is using metal-free materials. Our team offers high quality ceramic crowns, bridges, and other restorations. We can use these natural looking materials to repair damaged teeth, but many patients can also improve the cosmetic appearance of their smiles with these treatments. Using a durable, long lasting ceramic that is precisely shaded to blend into the natural smile line, our team will correct or conceal a damaged or flawed tooth. The treatment process for advanced restorations requires two visits to our Loomis dental office. During the first appointment, we prepare the tooth, capture impressions, and place a temporary to protect the tooth. Then, patients return to receive their final restoration.
