Confident Smiles for Father’s Day

Are you racking your brain trying to come up with a unique Father’s Day gift for your dad? If the thought of buying the usual tie, sports tickets, or steak dinner seems too predictable, why not shake up your paradigm by giving your father the gift of a perfect smile? Your Cupertino cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Randall LaFrom, can transform dad’s less-than-perfect smile into one that takes years off of his appearance and makes him feel more confident.

The Gift of a Whiter Smile

Have years of coffee drinking left your father with discolored teeth? If so, Dr. LaFrom offers both in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening. Using professional-grade bleaching formulas that oxidize stains in the enamel and dentin layers of the teeth, whitening can transform discolorations that were previously considered impossible to remove, including tetracycline stains. In-office bleaching, which uses a laser to accelerate the whitening effects, takes about an hour to achieve desired results. At-home whitening, which involves the use of custom mouth trays, will help your dad achieve the same results in about two weeks.

Conservative Correction of Tooth Flaws

If your father’s teeth are misshapen, chipped, crowded, or widely-spaced, you may think that an extensive mouth makeover is the only solution. However, many of these issues can be corrected with minimally-invasive cosmetic bonding. This technique involves placing a soft composite resin material onto the tooth to cover imperfections and give it an aesthetically-pleasing shape. The material is then hardened and polished so that it looks like natural tooth enamel. Bonding can fill in gaps between teeth and change the look and position of overlapping teeth, making your dad look as if he had orthodontic treatment, not a simple in-office dental procedure. Cosmetic bonding is a quick, comfortable, and cost-effective way to help dad achieve a winning smile.

Laser Therapy for a Gummy Smile

Has your dad always been self-conscious about showing too much gum tissue when he smiles? Do his teeth appear short and stubby? This condition, known as excessive gingival display, can be treated with laser surgery. Using a dental laser, Dr. LaFrom can remove the excess gum tissues with precision, revealing the true length of the teeth and giving dad’s smile the proper balance and symmetry. Unlike traditional surgery with scalpels, laser surgery seals off tissues as it removes them, preventing excessive swelling and bleeding. Healing time is minimal after this procedure, allowing your dad to show off his attractive new smile almost immediately.

Dr. LaFrom and our team provide the most advanced cosmetic dental procedures available to give your father the smile of his dreams.
