Our Cosmetic Services in Fresno, CA
Enhancing and Transforming Your Greatest Asset
Over the years, patients have come to our office looking for ways to improve the appearance of their teeth and gums. Whether you have a vision in mind or are looking for suggestions, we can design a smile that’s just for you. The benefits of a beautiful smile are endless and we want you to have the confidence to show yours off.
By utilizing a combination of science and art, Dr. Paredes can enhance the appearance of your best features to create a smile that you’ll be proud of. Whether you’re looking for a simple upgrade or a transformation, Dr. Paredes can explain the benefits of our cosmetic treatments so you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
We can upgrade your look in a matter of minutes with our dental bonding treatment. Dr. Paredes utilizes this dental bonding to improve a variety of dental flaws including teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken, discolored, or gapped.
During your treatment, Dr. Paredes will apply a tooth-colored composite material to your tooth to enhance its appearance. The procedure is simple, painless, and can be completed in a matter of minutes.
With porcelain veneers, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted in just two visits. Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored shells that are adhered to the surface of your teeth, creating the flawless look that you’ve always wanted. They’re customized to fit the color and contours of your smile precisely, ensuring a natural appearance.
This transformational procedure can conceal several imperfections, such as teeth that are stained or discolored, gapped, misshapen, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, and irregularly shaped. Thanks to porcelain veneers, you’ll want to show off your smile again and again.
If your tooth has suffered damage or decay, Dr. Paredes may recommend beautiful inlays or onlays to restore your oral health. Inlays and onlays are restorative and cosmetic due to their ability to repair mild to moderate decay and chipped teeth.
Dr. Paredes recommends these treatments when a cavity is too large for a filling but doesn’t yet require a dental crown. Inlays and onlays will preserve more of your natural tooth than a crown and can last 20 years or longer. We can also remove your metal fillings and replace them with inlays and onlays that will seamlessly blend with your smile.
Whether you have an upcoming event or simply want to brighten your smile, our teeth whitening treatments can achieve stunning results. At our Fresno dental office, we utilize the power and comfort of the Zoom! Whitening System®.
If you prefer immediate results, we can brighten your teeth up to eight shades with our professional in-office whitening treatment. We also offer convenient at-home whitening kits for patients with busy schedules. Within a few days, you can experience the benefits of a brilliant smile.
Until recently, undergoing orthodontic treatment meant you had to wear braces that consisted of painful and unsightly metal brackets and wires. At Noel T. Paredes, DDS, we offer a discreet and convenient way to straighten your teeth with ClearCorrect.
ClearCorrect® can fix a variety of orthodontic issues such as crowding, overbite, underbite, crossbite, gapped teeth, and open bite. A series of clear aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. Every two weeks, you’ll swap out your trays for a new set that will gently move your teeth until they’re in perfect alignment.

Following your treatment, you may experience some sensitivity as you adjust to your new smile. Any discomfort can typically be resolved with pain medications such as ibuprofen and a cold compress. Be sure to follow any guidelines provided by Dr. Paredes to ensure a quick and effective recovery.
