Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening treatments are one of the most commonly requested procedures at Rosemary Navarro, DDS. Dr. Navarro and our staff believes that Sylmar patients should have smiles that they love to show off. While we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to makeover any smile, teeth whitening is the most popular because of the quick and noticeable results.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening at Rosemary Navarro, DDS

There are many over-the-counter products that are designed to be used at home without the need for supervision by a dentist. However, these over-the-counter products cannot provide the same level of whitening strength as the professional-grade treatments provided at Rosemary Navarro, DDS. Additionally, the products available in stores take a longer time to garner noticeable whitening.

At our Sylmar office, our teeth bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide ranging from 25% to 40%. Teeth bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. Before the bleaching product is applied by Dr. Navarro or a member of our dental staff, a protective gel is applied to the gums. Whitening procedures in our office often only take one hour and only need to be repeated if the desired level of whitening is not achieved.

Whitening at Home

After your professional whitening appointment, you may wish to purchase whitening products from our Sylmar office. At Rosemary Navarro, DDS staff can recommend the appropriate product for you to use at regular intervals to keep your smile bright.

Call us today at 818-833-7216 to smile brighter.

Single Tooth Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into a patient's jawbone to support permanent replacement teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants never need to be removed for cleaning, and they allow for more comfortable eating and speaking. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Navarro to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants.

Porcelain Veneers

Why Get Veneers?
Isn’t it always nice to see a smiling face? It’s even better to see sparkling teeth when the person smiles. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with perfect teeth. Stained, cracked, crooked, or irregularly shaped teeth can cause undue embarrassment, inhibit social ease, and prevent one from fully enjoying life. If you are one of the many who urgently needs a dental restoration, then porcelain veneers might be the right solution for you.
Veneers are ultra-thin, like contact lenses. They are bonded to the surface of the affected tooth in the form of custom fabrication. Porcelain veneers help to alter tooth position, shape, size, and color. If you are looking for a cosmetic lift for your smile, look no further than Navarro Dentistry With some of the best providers of veneers, Sylmar has to offer, Navarro Dentistry is your clear choice.
When Do You Require Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, one of the many advancements in the field of cosmetic dentistry, help you achieve the smile you desire in a matter of weeks. Veneers are custom-made, natural-looking porcelain laminates that are specially designed to cover your front teeth. Working to provide patients with some of the best veneers Sylmar has to offer, Navarro Dentistry has become synonymous with comprehensive cosmetic care. We recommend veneers under the following conditions:
Worn-out teeth
Chipped or cracked teeth
Permanently stained teeth
Poorly shaped teeth
Gap teeth or unwanted spaces between teeth
Overly large or overly small teeth
Crooked teeth
How Long Will Veneers Last?
Because veneers can withstand chipping, staining, and daily wear and tear, they have the potential to last the rest of your life, provided you care for your veneers carefully. It’s important to practice daily dental hygiene such as flossing and brushing and to attend regular dental check-ups every six months or so.
In the same way, that bad habits such as biting your nails can hurt your teeth, chewing on improper surfaces can cause damage to your veneers. In general, the veneers will react to circumstances just like regular teeth, so you will need to protect them accordingly.
Advantages of Having Veneers:
Requires only a few visits to the office
Material is biodegradable
A natural appearance that blends seamlessly with the smile
Preservation of the tooth
No alteration of tooth necessary in most cases
Improves cosmetic issues such as stains or cracks
Long-lasting, durable
How Are Veneers Different From Crowns?
Veneers are approximately 1 mm thick, whereas a dental crown is usually around 2 mm. A crown will encase the entire tooth, but a veneer simply covers the front area that people see when you smile.
Crowns will be employed when a tooth has decayed or is broken and needs significant restoration. They are ideal for teeth that perform a lot of work, such as those that accomplish chewing, biting, and grinding. When a crown is applied, the tooth will be reduced, and that tooth will always need a crown going forward.
Veneers, on the other hand, are perfect for healthy teeth that simply need cosmetic improvement because of discoloration or an unattractive shape. They work best for the teeth in the front of the mouth that are more responsible for the look of one’s smile than for performing the work of chewing and grinding. With veneers, tooth reduction is not typically required. Like crowns, however, veneers are permanent and cannot be reversed.
What Does the Dental Veneers Procedure Involve?
At Dentique, Dr. Navarro and her team of dental experts are some of the best providers of Porcelain veneers Sylmar has to offer. We ensure that the veneers match the color of your existing teeth or a lighter shade you desire. We use porcelain veneers to close gaps between the teeth, correct stains and even make cracks disappear. We promise you results that will exceed your expectations!
You will require more than one appointment to complete the procedure. During the first visit, our dental experts carefully prepare and contour the teeth. We also take an impression of the teeth so as to create the veneers.
During the second visit, the veneer is bonded to the tooth. Once it is done, you can quite easily forget that something was done to your tooth. Your teeth will feel as good as new!


Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped teeth, stained teeth and gapped teeth. As one of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preserves most of the natural tooth structure. And it's fast, too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.

Cosmetic Dental Implants

At Rosemary Navarro, DDS in Sylmar, CA, Dr. Rosemary E. Navarro provides the latest in dental implants and restorative dentistry technology. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that serve as anchors for replacement teeth. When a patient is missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the most permanent (and often the most comfortable) solution. Visit our smile gallery to view some before-and-after photos of the results enjoyed by dental implant patients.

Steps for Dental Implants

The first step in the dental implants process for our Sylmar dental patients is a consultation with Dr. Navarro, during which all possible tooth replacement options will be discussed. To be a good candidate for dental implants, the dental patient must have sufficient bone in his or her jaw to support the implants. Once it is determined that the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, Dr. Navarro will surgically implant the titanium screws that serve as anchors into the patient's jaw. The next step in the dental implants process will occur three to six months later, after the titanium tooth roots have completely fused to the patient's jaw bone. Once this has occurred, the patient can return to our Sylmar restorative dentistry office where Dr. Navarro will fit the custom-crafted replacement teeth onto the patient's artificial tooth roots.

Dental Implants Preferred Over Dentures

Many of Dr. Navarro's Sylmar area dental implant patients prefer permanent dental implants over traditional removable dentures for several reasons. Dental implants are nearly indistinguishable from a patient's natural teeth, unlike dentures which look artificial. While traditional dentures need to be removed nightly for cleaning, dental implants are a permanent tooth loss solution that require no additional maintenance outside of a good oral hygiene routine. Dental implants also allow patients to feel more comfortable while speaking and eating because dental implants are permanently affixed to the patient's jaw and won't shift or slip as with traditional dentures.
