Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry Services at Nicole E. Pagonis, DDS

Cosmetic dentistry in Los Gatos has a primary focus on an improved smile and gum appearance. However, some cosmetic and restorative options overlap—meaning treatment can improve the health and aesthetics of your smile in one go.

For example, if we fill your tooth with a tooth-colored filling instead of silver, it is both restorative and cosmetic. If we cap a damaged tooth with a dental crown, it improves the appearance and function of that tooth.

On the other hand, dental veneers in Los Gatos, CA are strictly cosmetic, concealing short, worn, or flawed teeth and giving the illusion of symmetry.

Your Dentist in Los Gatos, CA wants you to enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile, and with today’s advancements, it is easy to take care of restorative and cosmetic issues with a single treatment.
