Procedures Offered:

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Man Consulting with Dentist

Full mouth reconstruction involves replacing or rebuilding all of a patient's teeth. A full mouth reconstruction addresses the size, color, shape, and position of each tooth, recreating a more youthful appearance in the smile and a properly functioning bite. Full mouth reconstructions can encompass many procedures ranging from crown and bridge, implants, veneers, to dentures. This treatment repairs problems caused by decay, misuse, trauma, or congenital issues and provides each patient with a cosmetically enhanced appearance.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is less extensive than a full mouth reconstruction and is based on making the smile as beautiful as possible. Procedures like veneers, bonding, crowns, and teeth whitening combine to produce a rejuvenated smile.

Dental Whitening Photo

Dr. Skoulas is an expert in dental veneers, thin shells of porcelain or composite covering chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth.  She only removes the smallest amount of tooth structure necessary to create the most beautiful final result to minimize the removal of the tooth's surface. Dr. Skoulas will determine a customized care plan with various options, and you can select the treatments you would like.

Dr. Skoulas is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced Invisalign® provider. She is the only Platinum Plus Provider in San Francisco that is not an orthodontist. Invisalign® may be the first step in creating a more fine-tuned, naturally looking smile, or quite often, the only thing that is necessary if the teeth are not discolored or chipped.

Teeth Whitening

We offer both in-office and take-home whitening solutions. In-office whitening produces stunning, immediate results in just one or two visits, while take-home teeth whitening allows patients to be in control of their final result and brightness.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Man Smiling After Fillings

Porcelain crowns are placed in order to cover fractured teeth or large cavitations filled with bacteria. Also used to cover root canal-treated teeth and extremely discolored teeth, crowns can be placed for functional reasons and to replace missing tooth structures to create a more aesthetic smile. Dr. Skoulas uses the most natural, beautiful porcelain she can to ensure her porcelain crowns are undetectable.   

Porcelain bridges are created by at least three porcelain crowns that are connected in order to replace a missing tooth.  A porcelain bridge can be placed in the aesthetic region or the back of the mouth. They can be made of the same type of natural porcelain that Dr. Skoulas uses for her porcelain crowns and, therefore, be quite beautiful.

Black Triangle Closure

Patient During Hygiene Appointment

Many people experience dark spaces at the gum line that can age their smile. These "black triangles" between teeth can result from bone loss, recession of the gum tissue, and sometimes the movement of the teeth. Dr. Skoulas uses an advanced technique to quickly close these gaps and rejuvenate your smile.

Gum Contouring and Reshaping

Regenerative Endodontics

Gum contouring and reshaping can instantly improve your smile by making changes to the shape of your gumline and transforming your smile. Dr. Skoulas uses procedures such as gum grafting or crown lengthening to reinvent your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

What can I do to keep my smile beautiful at home?
After you have received cosmetic treatments, you will want them to last for a long time. Follow an excellent at-home oral care routine, brushing and flossing as recommended. Avoid or reduce staining foods and drinks like red wine, coffee, and tea. Keep all routine dental appointments.
Does dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
Most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic dentistry, but it can be a vital investment in your quality of life. Talk to your insurer about the extent of your coverage. Our office can also help with monthly financing.
Can cosmetic dentistry improve my oral health?
Cosmetic dentistry not only improves your looks, but it can also boost your oral health. Teeth whitening, for example, kills bacteria. Crowns and bridges restore the chewing function of your teeth.
How long does teeth whitening take?
In-office teeth whitening only takes about an hour per visit. With just two visits, your teeth will be multiple shades whiter. At-home teeth whitening is more gradual, but you will see results quickly.
Can crowns and bridges be whitened?
Crowns and bridges do not respond to teeth whitening because they do not have natural enamel. If you have crowns and bridges visible when you smile, you should whiten them to match them. Otherwise, you can whiten your teeth and replace the crown or bridge with a lighter version.
How many visits will it take to achieve a new smile?
It depends on how many services you need. Treatments like teeth whitening or veneers can make a huge difference in your appearance in only one or two visits. Other methods, such as smile makeovers, involve several appointments and different techniques.
