A beautiful smile is one of the most sought after cosmetic features in the world. People from all backgrounds and professions want a bright, straight smile, and we are here to help turn that desire into reality. Whether through minor adjustments or major treatment plans, our cosmetic dentistry practice aims to improve your smile and help you build confidence in the way your teeth look.
A smile makeover uses cosmetic dental procedures to make you proud of your smile. We perform teeth whitening, along with other cosmetic procedures like veneers and tooth implants.
Each smile makeover is different. We start by doing a thorough examination and decide what each patient wants and needs. We look at the color of your teeth and how they are all lined up. We check to see if there are any missing teeth or if any are cracked, chipped, or broken.
Our goal is to give you a healthy and happy smile.We want you to have a bright smile, along with teeth that line up correctly and are aesthetically pleasing. We work with our patients to ensure their happiness. We will do whatever we can so that, when you leave our office, you will be completely happy with your smile.
Veneers are custom shaped pieces of ceramic that can serve as very beautiful and strong restorations. Typically they are used on your front (smile-zone) teeth.
A few indications for their use include: closing up spaces between teeth, repairing broken/chipped teeth, and covering stubborn staining or discoloration of teeth that do not come out with simple cleanings or whitening.
The preparation of a tooth is more conservative than that of a crown preparation so we would be conserving more of your tooth structure. The more conservative we can be, the better for the health of your tooth.

Whether you are missing a few teeth or all your teeth, one option that may work for you is a removable denture. The dentures are custom-made to conform with your existing oral condition, whether it’s fitting around your existing teeth, or on top of the tooth-less ridge. Dr Chan has extensive experience in helping a wide variety of patients regain their smile and ability to chew. Contact us to see how Dr Chan can help you!
For our patients who have lost all their teeth, Complete Dentures are the way to go to return form and function to your face and mouth. If you’ve been missing your teeth for a while, you will probably notice that your face is not as full as it used to be and your bite has collapsed since your teeth are missing. Complete dentures will be custom made to simulate where teeth would be in your mouth and help your face look fuller and more natural. They are also removable for easy cleaning.
Removable Partial Dentures
For patients who are missing multiple teeth, but still have a few sturdy teeth left, removable partial dentures (RPD or partials) are the way to go to restore function and esthetics. RPD’s are supported on your existing teeth and partially on the soft gum tissues where teeth are missing. The RPD hugs your teeth for a tight fit so that you can chew with confidence! They are also removable so that you can keep your remaining teeth clean.
Implant Supported Denture
With the advent of implants, they have also been used to add extra support to your dentures. If you’ve worn dentures for a while, you will know that over time, your jaw changes shape and the dentures will not fit as well. This is because of the changes in the bone due to the lack of teeth. This causes your dentures to eventually start sliding all over the place! Implants can be utilized to help stabilize your dentures. Even just one implant has been reported to increase patient satisfaction in their dentures. Ask us if you’re a good candidate to for implants!
At Factoria Dental Care, we strive to create restorations to last several years, and sometimes for a patient’s lifetime. Both Dr Raymond and Dr Jason are conservative with their preparations, because preserving the tooth structure is crucial to the longevity of your tooth.

Crowns are the ultimate full-coverage restoration. They come in a variety of materials with variable advantages. The types we offer are Full Gold, Porcelain-Fused to Metal (or “PFM”), or Full Ceramic. Full Gold crowns are the “gold standard” (forgive the pun) in terms of durability and seal of the tooth. Their drawback is their gold appearance that does not match your natural tooth color. Full ceramic crowns are the most esthetic crowns available. They are made from materials that can mimic the appearance and translucency of natural tooth structure almost perfectly. Their durability is also good, but may be contraindicated for patients who have very strong bites. PFM crowns combine the advantages of both metal and ceramic materials. There is a metal substructure that is covered with a ceramic layer to give the crown a natural appearance. The metal underneath, lends it’s strength to support the ceramic on top, so you have the strength of a metal coping with the esthetics of porcelain. They are slightly less esthetic because of the thinner amount of porcelain used, thus having less translucency. However, they can still be color matched to your existing teeth. All crowns are great restorations and have their respective indications. We’ll make sure we educate and work with you in order to meet your needs and create a beautiful smile for you.request an appointment

Dental bonding is the procedure where we apply a tooth colored plastic material to a patient’s tooth. Using a special light, the material hardens and bonds the material to the tooth.
Dental bonding is used to improve a patient’s smile. It can be used on cracked and decaying teeth. It also can be used for cavities. It can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth so you have a more uniform smile! It is also commonly used for receding gums by protecting the exposed teeth!request an appointment
