Cosmetic Dentistry Palo Alto

Cosmetic Dentistry & Smile Makeovers in Palo Alto

Here at Extraordinary Smile, Palo Alto cosmetic dentist Dr. Zahra Hakim is committed to help you achieve a whiter and brighter smile by utilizing one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Her expertise in this area of cosmetic dentistry has been achieved as a result of the combination of education, on-going training, experience, and the desire to helping people create a better life for themselves through the self-confidence a beautiful smile can provide.

Dr. Hakim will begin the process by performing a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and chewing mechanism. She’ll take digital x-rays, create molds of your teeth, and take specific measurements of the joints and upper and lower jaw. Digital photography and intraoral video cameras are often used so you can see what she sees.

She’ll then discuss your options and what procedures will work best to give you the smile you desire. If your teeth have minor cracks and chips, then porcelain dental veneers may be the solution. If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, then Invisalign may be the best approach. If you have broken or missing teeth then dental implants may be recommended, and if your teeth are just yellow or stained, then one of our teeth whitening procedures would be all that is needed.

  • Rating: 5 Dentist Palo Alto, CA - 5 Star Rating“As one of your older patients, I am a big fan of Invisalign. I would have never gone through the typical orthodontic procedures for braces. People did not even know that I was wearing anything on my teeth. It never proved to be a problem. I am very, very pleased with the results of Invisalign. I am almost finished and only have good things to say about it.”
