Our Cosmetic Treatments
At Forest Family Dentistry, we believe everyone deserves to have an incredible smile. A set of bright-white healthy teeth can help you to feel confident and self-assured, allowing you to make a lasting, positive impression on everyone you meet. If certain characteristics of your teeth make you feel self-conscious or reluctant to smile, cosmetic dentistry procedures performed by Dr. Jonathan J. Yu at our San Jose, California office can help you achieve a smile you will love.

Porcelain Veneers and LUMINEERS®
If your teeth are chipped, worn, misaligned or discolored, porcelain veneers and Lumineers® can help you achieve an appearance of health and symmetry. These thin, custom-made porcelain shells fit over the front surfaces of your teeth, giving your smile a consistent alignment, shape, and coloration. Porcelain veneers, which are created in a single visit using CEREC® technology, require some alteration of the teeth, while Lumineers® offer a non-invasive, reversible solution. To learn which of these cosmetic dentistry solutions is right for you, contact our San Jose office.
Bright white teeth are an important part of a dazzling smile. Factors such as genetics, the foods we eat, and habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco can cause tooth discoloration. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure we use at our San Jose office to restore a healthy luster to the teeth. A special bleaching agent is applied to the teeth, and its effects are intensified with a special light. After about an hour, you can leave our office with a gleaming, reinvigorated smile.
Gum Reshaping (Contouring)
Dr. Jonathan J. Yu is a leading practitioner of laser dentistry in the United States, and his innovative techniques allow him to help patients with “gummy” smiles to enjoy beautifully framed teeth. Dr. Yu uses lasers to quickly and painlessly remove excess gum tissue, allowing the teeth to look longer, healthier, and more beautiful. The healing process is fast, the results are permanent, and the beautiful effect it has on teeth will give you a reason to smile for many years to come.
