At Leung Dental, we offer a variety of additional services for you and your family.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
By applying a thin coating of a tooth-colored resin composite material to teeth, Dr. Wilson Leung and Dr. Katherine Leung can improve the appearance of a number of cosmetic flaws. In many cases, cosmetic bonding is more affordable and just as effective as porcelain veneers, though results will not last as long.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that Dr. Leung can be used to cover stains or mask flaws such as cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics" because they can also be applied to straighten the appearance of a crooked smile.
When a person's gums extend too far onto the tooth surface, they're said to have a "gummy" smile. In just one painless office visit, Dr. Leung can use a diode laser to gently sculpt the gum line into a more pleasing proportion, making teeth appear larger and the smile more brilliant.
Oral Surgery/Dental Extractions
Dr. Leung may determine that you need a tooth extraction for various reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they have extreme decay; others may have advanced periodontal disease or are broken and cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
Halitosis (Bad Breath) Treatment
Halitosis, or simply bad breath, can be unpleasant and make you feel self-conscious. At Leung Dental, that is the last thing we want!
As one of the most frequent concerns of oral health, many patients seek our office for preventative measures and treatment of halitosis.
At Leung Dental, we offer both full and partial dentures to our patients in the Hayward area and East Bay. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable replacement teeth. Dr. Leung uses the most modern materials and methods to create our patients' dentures, so they can always be assured of a comfortable fit and the most realistic appearance.
Night Guards/Sports Guards
If you have problems with teeth grinding, clenching your teeth, or snoring, we can help improve your smile and help you get a good night’s sleep. At Leung Dental, we offer mouth guards and night guards individually designed and customized to fit your mouth perfectly.
Full Smile Makeover
Many of Dr. Leung's patients combine a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures to achieve the ultimate in smile design. For example, a patient may choose to eliminate the "gummy" appearance of his or her smile with gum recontouring, and then enhance the results with a tooth whitening session. To learn more about the smile makeover or smile design opportunities available to our patients, we encourage you to make an appointment to consult with a member of the Leung Dental team at our Hayward office. Call us today at 510-886-8899 for more information.
TMJ Treatment and Jaw Pain
If you have jaw or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, Dr. Leung will conduct a thorough examination to determine the source of your pain. We'll offer a personalized treatment plan and may also create a night/mouthguard for you to protect your teeth and jaw. Mouth guards and night guards are individually designed and customized to fit your mouth perfectly.
If a patient is missing one or more teeth but is not necessarily a good candidate for dentures or dental implants, he or she may be fitted with a dental bridge. A bridge is an artificial tooth that is held in place by a dental crown on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth.
Scaling & Root Planing
Some patients require more than the routine cleaning. Deep cleanings can help alleviate many dental health problems by removing soft or hardened plaque and calculus from under the gum line, facilitating the healing of gums, and preventing tooth and bone loss and the spread of gum disease.
Traditional metal fillings are often composed of mercury, which, in addition to creating a black appearance, can be harmful to our patient's health. For this reason, at Leung Dental we use only composite, or tooth-colored fillings. White fillings applied by Dr. Leung are less likely to cause tooth breakage like with metal fillings. White fillings are also virtually undetectable which makes your smile healthy and beautiful at the same time.
