Are you unhappy with your smile?

Take a look at our cosmetic procedures that will improve the appearance of your teeth quickly and effectively.


Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin facings of tooth-colored porcelain that slip over a tooth to improve its appearance. At Jennifer L. Moran, DDS we use these veneers as one of the most effective ways to cover imperfections such as chips, permanent stains and even crooked teeth. As your Salinas dentist, Dr. Moran will begin by removing a layer of tooth enamel so that the veneer can be more easily bonded to the tooth. Once this is completed Dr. Moran will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory where the veneers are produced. At your next appointment the newly created veneers will be bonded into place. Dr. Moran uses a high quality tooth colored porcelain that is valued for both its beauty and durability. If you are searching for a practice that specializes in porcelain veneers in Salinas, CA, or the surrounding areas of Prunedale and Soledad, choose Dr. Moran for the best in cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding can be used to restore function when teeth are broken or chipped, but it is also extensively used at Jennifer L. Moran, DDS for patients who want a simple way to improve their smile. Cosmetic bonding uses a composite resin material that, unlike crowns, veneers, or bridges, can be applied during a single appointment. The first step when applying cosmetic bonding is to score the teeth to be treated. This helps the material bond to your natural tooth. Then your Salinas dentist, Dr. Moran, will coat the surface of your tooth with the resin and apply a special light in order to set it into its permanent position. Once this is completed the procedure is finished and your newly created smile should give you a look that perfectly blends with your natural teeth. The key to these results is taking the time to match the natural tooth color, something that Dr. Moran always takes great care while performing. For more information on improving your smile with cosmetic bonding in Salinas, Prunedale, and Soledad, CA, contact Jennifer L. Moran, DDS.

Tooth-colored Fillings

Tooth-colored Fillings
If you are looking for a simple and effective way to improve your smile, consider the option of replacing your old, amalgam (silver-mercury) fillings with new, composite resin, tooth-colored fillings. Not only are amalgam fillings dark in color, these old fillings have raised health concerns based on the mercury they contain. Salinas, CA dentist, Dr. Moran, uses only the newest materials that are aesthetically superior and that have been proven to be safe and strong for patients. She can have your old fillings removed and replaced with new tooth colored ones in only one single, short appointment. There is no reason not to enjoy a new, aesthetically restored smile, so visit our office or schedule a consultation for tooth-colored fillings in Salinas, Prunedale, and Soledad.

Teeth Whitening

Couple Smiling
The most noticeable feature and indicator of youth and oral health is without a doubt the color of your teeth. While you may be brushing, flossing, using mouthwash, and even whitening strips, you may still be experiencing embarrassment due to stains from prolonged coffee or tobacco use, illness, or the natural aging process. If this is your situation, then visit Dr. Moran, the dentist who can offer the easiest and most convenient teeth whitening in Salinas, CA.

One option for tooth whitening in Salinas, CA, is at-home professional tooth whitening. Many of Dr. Moran’s patients prefer the at-home method because it offers much faster results.
