How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help?
Professional Teeth Whitening
- Stained, yellow teeth can make you want to hide your smile. Teeth whitening will brighten your teeth and restore them to a whiter shade. Our professional treatments are safer and more effective than over-the-counter products. For your convenience, Dr. Cederbaum offers both take-home and in-office professional teeth whitening treatments. The Zoom! whitening system can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes.
Veneers are a great option for teeth that don’t respond to whitening treatments or are broken, crooked, or chipped. They’re thin shells made of natural-looking, tooth-colored porcelain that are attached to the front of your teeth using a special dental adhesive.
Additional issues veneers can fix include small gaps and uneven surfaces, such as craters or bulges. Veneers can give your smile a complete makeover.
Dental bonding is an economical option that can be used to remedy a number of smile issues. Dr. Cederbaum uses dental resin to correct the appearance of stained, broken, misaligned, chipped, or irregularly-shaped teeth.
With bonding, it doesn’t take very long to correct the imperfections in your smile. You can be in and out of our office with a new smile in just one hour.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is a trusted and safe procedure that can be completed in-home or in-office. The at-home kits have a lower concentration of bleach in their solutions and therefore may take a few weeks to show results. If you follow the instructions, the treatment is safe.
When you’re looking for immediate stunning results, you’ll want to have your teeth professionally whitened. With our chairside whitening treatment, we’ll apply the bleaching agent on your teeth to ensure the agent doesn’t touch your gums. It’s normal to feel some sensitivity following the procedure, but it will diminish with time.
How long do veneers last?
With proper care, your veneers can last 10 years or longer. You’ll care for your veneers just like your regular teeth by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals. You’ll also want to contact our Seattle office to schedule biannual cleanings and checkups by calling (206) 524-1314. During your exams, we’ll ensure your teeth and veneers are in excellent condition.
How can I improve the longevity of my veneers?
In addition to following a regular oral hygiene routine and scheduling biannual visits at our office, you’ll want to follow any recommendations by Dr. Cederbaum to improve the lifespan of your veneers. Here are a few guidelines to follow:
- Avoid foods and beverages that are likely to stain your teeth such as wine, soda, balsamic vinegar, tea, and coffee
- Refrain from biting into hard foods such as apples and carrots
- Don’t use your teeth as tools (for example, using them to open packages)
- Protect your smile with a mouthguard if you play contact sports
- Address teeth grinding issues
What is dental bonding used for?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that’s often used to restore teeth that have been damaged, chipped or broken, stained, or are gapped. After prepping your tooth, Dr. Cederbaum will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. The bonding treatment will typically last between four to eight years on the front teeth.
Dental bonding is an inexpensive cosmetic treatment that can be completed without the need for a numbing agent. The procedure can be completed in one appointment and your smile will be tailored to your needs.
