An ethical dentist applies concern for aesthetics to virtually every procedure. I want to reinstate the attractiveness of my patients’ smiles, as well as chewing function, each time I perform a restoration. However, I get very excited about the opportunity to transform a healthy smile with cosmetic dentistry for patients in Los Angeles, CA. I see the incredible impact it has on their lives, self-image, and success.
Whitening is an affordable “gateway” cosmetic treatment. Once a patient sees how brighter teeth light up the entire face, he or she often decides to take further smile enhancement steps. I offer two options for fast in-office whitening (Zoom! and KöR), as well as a professional take-home whitening kit.
Most people are amazed at the difference in their smiles when old dark fillings are replaced with restorations that blend beautifully.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material that is versatile and economical. I primarily use bonding to reshape teeth and close spaces.
Porcelain veneers can be used to create subtle or dramatic changes in the smile. A single tooth may be veneered, but commonly four, six, or eight “smile teeth” in the upper arch are treated. These thin layers have the luster of natural tooth enamel. They hide deep discoloration, chips, cracks, pits, and bumps in enamel. Veneers improve the shape and size of teeth, and cover wear. They can also serve as “instant orthodontics,” correcting the appearance of minor misalignment.
A porcelain crown can be used to improve the shape and color of a tooth, or to top a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
With Invisalign clear aligners, you look good while you get a straight, even smile.
