The first and foremost responsibility of a dentist is the health of your teeth and gums. But sometimes, you want a dentist who understands how important it is for you to have a smile that looks good, too. And that’s where cosmetic dentistry comes into the picture. Dr. Gary Klugman and Dr. Christina Bianco at Blanco Circle Dental Care in Salinas, CA, offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments, so you can have a smile that is beautiful and confident.
Probably the most common and the most popular cosmetic procedure is teeth whitening. Whether you prefer to whiten quickly in our office or at home on your own time, we have the right whitening system for you. Both of the systems we use at Blanco Circle Dental Care are by Opalescence®.
Cosmetic Bonding and Porcelain Veneers
For teeth that are deeply stained, or are chipped, cracked or slightly crooked, the solution may be cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers. With cosmetic bonding, one of our dentists uses a tooth-colored composite resin to correct your smile imperfection. The composite material is bonded to the facial surface of your damaged tooth to create a new form or finish. Porcelain veneers, made of ultra-thin layers of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth in your smile zone to create a new and beautiful smile, conceal your teeth’s flaws.
ClearCorrect is an orthodontic system that uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth, rather than traditional metal braces. If you missed the opportunity to have braces as a child and you would now like to straighten your teeth as an adult, ClearCorrect can be the inconspicuous option you might prefer.

When you see your smile in the mirror or in a picture, is your eye drawn to that one little flaw? If there was just something you could do to fix it, then you’d have the greatest smile imaginable. Well, cosmetic bonding might be the fix your smile needs. Dr. Gary Klugman and Dr. Christina Bianco at Blanco Circle Dental Care in Salinas, CA, have used cosmetic bonding to improve many patients’ smiles and they can do the same for you!
With cosmetic bonding, the dentists at Blanco Circle Dental Care can repair a number of imperfections in your smile, including teeth that are chipped, cracked or stained and discolored; teeth that are somewhat misaligned or have irregular gaps between them; and teeth that are overly worn down.
What is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a relatively simple procedure that Dr. Klugman or Dr. Bianco can usually accomplish in a single visit. In fact, if you’ve ever needed a dental cavity filled, then chances are you have some of the same material dentists use for bonding in your mouth already. In the case of cosmetic bonding, this same material—a tooth-colored composite resin—is applied to the surface of your flawed tooth or teeth to create a more pleasing appearance.
To restore your tooth, the dentist applies the composite resin to the tooth’s surface, and then carefully shapes it and quickly hardens it with a curing light. This process is repeated until the flaw is repaired and the desired appearance is achieved. Finally, we make sure the bonding material is polished to match the sheen of your existing teeth. In one short visit, that one little flaw is fixed and you have a beautiful, new smile!
