Porcelain VeneersPorcelain veneers are thin facings of tooth-colored porcelain that slip over a tooth to improve its appearance. At Pearce & Associates 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 local Point Richmond dentist, Dr. Robert Pearce 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. Pearce 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. Pearce use 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 Point Richmond, CA, or the surrounding areas of Richmond and San Pablo, choose Dr. Pearce for the best in cosmetic dentistry. Contact our office today.


Instant orthodontics is one of the newest advancements in dental technology available at Pearce & Associates, and it makes getting straight teeth a fast and easy experience. Traditional orthodontic braces have many drawbacks such as abrasions caused by metal in the mouth, the painful tightening of the braces, the length of treatment, and the visibility of the braces themselves. Today all these concerns are addressed by the option of instant orthodontics.

Your Point Richmond dentist, Dr. Pearce, can use a complete set of porcelain veneers to give you a complete smile makeover. The procedure is quick, painless, and can be done entirely at our Point Richmond, CA office. On your initial visit you will have some enamel removed and impressions will be taken of your teeth. Then, when the veneers have been created, each one is bonded to its corresponding tooth. Using the veneers in this way, Dr. Pearce can reshape the profile of your teeth, making them more symmetrical, closing gaps, and covering imperfections. It is one of the easiest, most effective cosmetic procedures available. To have that perfect smile you’ve always wanted, contact our office for the highest quality instant orthodontics in Point Richmond, Richmond, or San Pablo.


Cosmetic bonding can be used to restore function when teeth are broken or chipped, but it is also extensively used at Pearce & Associates for patients who want a simple way to improve their smile. Cosmetic bonding uses a composite resin material that, unlike porcelain veneers, crowns 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 Point Richmond dentist, Dr. Pearce, 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. They key to these results is taking the time to match the natural tooth color, something that Dr. Pearce always take great care while performing.

Tooth-colored FillingsIf 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.

Point Richmond, CA dentist, Dr. Robert Pearce, uses only the newest materials that are aesthetically superior and that have been proven to be safe and strong for their patients. They 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 contact us for a consultation on tooth-colored fillings in Point Richmond, Richmond, and San Pablo.


Teeth WhiteningThe 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. Robert Pearce, the cosmetic dentist who can offer the easiest and most convenient teeth whitening in Point Richmond, CA.

To prevent sensitivity issues, the system also features a desensitizing enhancer.

How LumiBrite whitening your teeth?

The powerful Lumibrite Chairside Whitening Gel comes in at a whopping 35% hydrogen peroxide percentage. That’s about as strong as it gets in the whitening field – and that’s the major action behind the whitening. Teeth are first cleaned to remove calculus and surfaces stains, then gums are painted with a “Paint-On Dental Dam” to prevent damage to soft gum tissues. Additionally, your dentist will apply a lip moisturizer to protect soft lip surface. Next, the Lumibrite Densensitizing Enhancer is applied to teeth before application of the Whitening Gel.

Once the teeth are coated, the Sapphire PAC light will be positioned at the mouth and set for 30 minutes. Your dentist will check your progress, however, every 15 minutes or so. If it’s determined you need another 30 minute session – an additional layer of Densitizing Enhancer and Whitening Gel are applied. When the whitening procedure is completed, the Paint-On Dental Dam is cleaned.
