How Does a Smile Makeover Work?
Commonly Combined Procedures
Environmental factors, such as dark-colored foods or drinks, can stain tooth enamel and make your smile appear unhealthy. Dentist-supervised teeth whitening can dramatically brighten your smile in just one hour. Dr. Mortensen offers both in-office and take-home whitening options.
If you have small chips, hairline cracks, or other dental problems that affect the appearance of your smile, then dental bonding could be an effective option. During this procedure, your dentist applies tooth-colored composite resin to the affected areas, bringing balance and symmetry back to your smile.
Veneers cover the front surfaces of the teeth, improving their size, shape, and color. Veneers are crafted from medical-grade porcelain, which mimics the translucency of natural teeth for a truly lifelike look.
Crowns are used in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Unlike a veneer, a crown covers the entire tooth structure. Therefore, these restorations may be recommended when additional strength and reinforcement is needed. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including lifelike porcelain.
Missing teeth interfere with your appearance as well as your oral health and function. Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. They can be restored with custom crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Some patients have excess gum tissue that covers portions of the natural crowns of the teeth. This can make the teeth appear small and boxy. Our dentist can perform gum reshaping at our Fountain Valley practice to eliminate excess gum tissue and make the gumline more even.
If you have crooked, rotated, gapped, or misaligned teeth, you may wish to undergo an orthodontic procedure. Invisalign® is a popular alternative to braces that straightens your smile using removable plastic aligner trays. Best of all, the aligners are clear, so treatment is discreet.
Our Cosmetic Dentist Offers Temporary Restorations
Our Patients can start experiencing the benefits of an enhanced smile even as they wait for our team to create their permanent restorations. We offer temporary restorations to give you a brighter or more even smile until your final restorations are ready.

What to Expect During Recovery
Dr. Mortensen is a cosmetic, restorative, and general dentist. You can visit him for regular exams and cleanings so he can help you maintain your beautiful new smile.
Maintaining Your Results
Brush your teeth at least twice every day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste. Dr. Mortensen can recommend a good brand for your needs, so feel free to ask for ideas.
Floss Between the Teeth
Clean between the teeth once daily. If you do not like regular floss, ask us about interproximal brushes or dental picks. If you're not sure whether you're flossing correctly, Dr. Mortensen or your dental hygienist can show you how.
Attend Dental Visits
Dr. Mortensen is both a general dentist and a cosmetic dentist. You can trust him to take care of your smile with regular visits for exams, cleanings, and preventative care. This is crucial for long-term oral health.

How Can I Pay For My Smile Makeover?
Cosmetic treatments, like veneers, are not covered by insurance. Dental treatments that can improve your health or oral function, like dental crowns, can potentially be eligible for coverage.
Patients typically pay for their cosmetic dentistry treatments using cash, a credit card, or dental financing. Our office accepts financing from CareCredit® to keep your teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or dental implants affordable for you.
