Cosmetic dentistry can enhance your smile and give you an added boost of self-confidence. The Palo Alto cosmetic dentistry team at Kris Hamamoto D.D.S & Associates offers various procedures, including veneers, teeth whitening, crowns and Invisalign®, to rejuvenate your smile. No matter what your individual needs, we can give you the smile you have always dreamed of having! Learn more about our cosmetic dentistry services below.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can quickly and comfortably give you the stunning smile you have always wanted, in as few as three easy appointments!

Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material designed to slide over the teeth, can perfect your smile by hiding stains and chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers do more than just improve the look of your smile — they also add strength and durability, ensuring you will enjoy your radiant smile for years to come.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are natural-looking “caps” that fit comfortably over teeth to hide cracks, chips, fractures and discolorations. Crowns restore natural looking shape and size to damaged teeth while minimizing physical discomfort and providing strength and support. Depending on your individual needs and preferences, we offer both porcelain and gold crowns at our practice.

Crowns can improve the appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury. If you would like to learn more about crowns, please contact our Palo Alto cosmetic dentistry team today.


Invisalign® is a revolutionary way to help you enjoy even, straight teeth without having to wear unattractive, painful metal braces. Virtually undetectable, Invisalign® aligners are made of strong, clear plastic and gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® aligners have no wires or brackets on which your lips or gums can snag.

During your first evaluation, Dr. Hamamoto will examine your teeth and help you decide if Invisalign® is right for you. She will then devise a treatment plan and take impressions of your teeth, from which the Invisalign® laboratory will develop your series of personalized aligners. The aligners slide comfortably over your teeth and are replaced with the next set in the sequence every two weeks as your teeth move into place. You will wear the aligners at all times (except when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing) for 12 to 48 months — no longer than you would wear traditional braces — and come to our practice about every six weeks for check-ups.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening brightens up teeth that have stained or discolored due to consuming certain foods and beverages, taking specific medications or simply the effects of aging. In-office, professional teeth whitening is quick, safe and produces noticeable results almost immediately. Having a dentist perform treatment maximizes the results while helping to prevent issues of tooth sensitivity or other discomfort.
