Feel Good About Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Angeles area
Nothing can ruin the moment like a sudden attack of self-doubt. Will you look unfriendly or disinterested if you don’t smile? Will people notice that little chip or your stained teeth if you do smile? Don’t let these and similar worries plague you. Dr. Mungcal and the Downtown Dental team can help you feel better about your smile with cosmetic dentistry in Los Angeles.

What a difference a smile can make!

If you want to make a great first impression, you need to look your best. It goes without saying that an attractive smile is important, but you might wonder just how much difference it can make. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has commissioned several independent surveys deigned to answer that very question.
  • A Beall Research & Training study asked participants to record their first impressions after briefly viewing photos. They found that dental patients were perceived as more kind, happy, friendly, intelligent, interesting, successful, wealthy, popular, and attractive after cosmetic treatment.
  • A separate study conducted in 2004 evaluated people’s opinions about smile aesthetics. Researchers found that 99.7 percent of Americans consider a beautiful smile to be important social asset. Furthermore, 74 percent said an unsightly smile can diminish a person’s chances of success in the workplace.

Exploring your cosmetic dental options

Dr. Mungcal and the Downtown Dental team use a variety of procedures to restore or improve the appearance of your smile. The best technique depends on your oral health needs and aesthetic goals. We will begin with a consultation, and then work with you to develop a customized treatment plan. This may include one or more of the following:
  • Porcelain veneers – If your teeth are in good health and you want to make significant aesthetic changes, this is most likely your best option. Veneers are conservative and minimalistic, requiring very little tooth preparation. A thin, beautiful layer of porcelain covers the visible part of each treated tooth, transforming its appearance. Veneers can change almost anything about the appearance of teeth, from covering stains to improving the shape.
  • Crowns – Most often, crowns are recommended for teeth that also have decay or other damage. They are sturdy restorations that encase treated teeth in a thick layer of porcelain. Dental crowns can repair broken, fractured, or severely decayed teeth. They are also used to protect teeth after root canal therapy. Dental crowns are designed to look just like healthy, natural, beautiful teeth. Therefore, they restore the appearance of your smile along with the health and functionality. With our CEREC machine, we can create crowns right here in our office for one-day treatment.
  • Teeth whitening – Much stronger than over-the-counter products, professional bleaching gel can penetrate enamel to strip away stubborn stains. However, you can still enjoy the comfort and convenience of home whitening. We provide custom-made trays, professional strength products, and complete instructions. Through our Bright for Life program, this is available free to patients who attend all checkups and cleaning appointments.

  • Cosmetic fillings – A cavity does not need to have a lasting impact on the appearance of your smile. We use white composite resin, which is tinted to precisely match your enamel color. After decay is removed, resin material is placed directly in the cavity, then shaped and hardened. The procedure is fast, efficient, and comfortable with beautiful results.
  • Dental bonding – Color matched composite material can do more than repair cavities. This putty-like material can be applied to any part of the tooth to cover permanent stains, close wide gaps between teeth, and much more.
  • Invisible braces – Crooked teeth are among the most common cosmetic dental complaints. However, most people, especially those who need to maintain a professional appearance, don’t want to spend months or years wearing metal braces. Invisalign orthodontics accomplish the same goal as standard braces, but without any metal. Clear aligner trays are discreet, convenient, and comfortable.

Make your dream smile come true

Reviews

"I am a legit Patient at this practice. The Doctor is amazing - educated, skilled and patient. Allison, my Dental Hygienist, is really friendly, knowledgeable and proactive about her patients' oral health. In my experience, the office staff at Downtown Dental is always professional, friendly, and thoughtful about my time. Plus, they offer reasonable financing! If you're honest about your budget (for people like me who don't have dental insurance), they can often work with you to stay within budget. I also learned that they use the best equipment in their field and staff gets training often on new dental techniques. If you are someone who works, resides or likes to visit Downtown - this is an especially excellent place to see the dentist periodically.

Downtown Dental is a fantastic Dental practice in the heart of the city. They are located near LA's Cultural hub of museums, concert halls and the like (The Broad, MOCA + more ). But don't let all that (magic) discourage you from making your appointment, because traffic is usually very smooth on Grand and getting in and out of their secure and validated parking lot (in their building) is a breeze. They also have 2 e-car charging stations if that's how you roll. If you work in DTLA, like many, you can even get a lunchtime cleaning!

Sidebar: The office is located inside a gorgeous apartment building, full of high end furnishings, accentuated with stunning street art. You may have even passed by & seen the Subway flags at street level- the dental office is right upstairs. It's worth a try, especially if you want great oral health, love art, culture and the city!"
"Still the best I've ever been to! The entire staff is more than knowledgeable & helpful!

Don't waste your time going to other places, this dentist & his team are your best bet!

They are courteous, flexible, and above all: PROFESSIONAL."
"What an amazing staff and dental team!!

I had four front crowns and 2 root canals done all in about 3 hours! It was pain free! Dr Mungcal was fast and I didn't feel a thing! People compliment my teeth all the time! ...Little do they know they're fake! Very grateful!!! I am in Invisalign now and love how it stopped me from clenching and grinding my teeth! My teeth and gums are healthy because of all the amazing dental work they have done and continue to do!! Oh ...And they offered nitrous which made the whole experience awesome! Go here if you want dental work done right!!"
"Downtown dental made my cavity experience as painless as possible, and the technology they use is so up to date and accurate.

The staff are also very friendly and know the best habits for having a healthy mouth.
So glad I started going here!"
"Absolutely the best dental office! In all reality I used to hate going to the dentist I would cancel my appointments at my old Drs office all the time !! But the Hygienists and the staff in general are so welcoming and make you wanna keep coming back. They are always ready to deliver and Allison did an amazing job on my teeth cleaning thank you for that"
"This review is long overdue. I've been a patient at downtown dental since 2005 and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've had quite a bit of dental work and when I had a cracked crown recently, they scheduled me the next day and replaced it at no charge. They would have scheduled me that day but sadly, I'm no longer a patient as I've moved to NorCal. I felt like they really went out of the way to accommodate me and I appreciate that! Thanks guys!!"
"Great practice, the doctors and assistants are very professional, helpful and pleasant. They make dental appointments almost enjoyable...not something I thought possible!

Katie the hygienist is not only gentle, professional and very professional but also inspiring. She makes you want to have the best gums in Los Angeles.

Thank you guys!"
"The team at Downtown Dental are the best! They have done both an implant and Invisalign for me. They keep me informed about all the steps and always get me in and out quickly! I love that they can do everything right in their own offices too."
"My story is: I chipped a took eating cereal! Who does that!?! (The cereal was crunchy I'll admit). I went to Downtown Dental and Dr. Mungcal evaluated my situation and realized my bite needed to be adjusted. I grind my teeth at night also so the combination of it all was wearing my teeth down. He recommended invisalign to align my bite. I was hesitant because it's pricey but...trust me...it was SO WORTH IT!!! 8 months later, my bite is fixed and aligned and my teeth are straighter which is a bonus! I am only 34 and I want to keep my teeth healthy and strong for a long time! Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are amazing and took GREAT care of me. You can rest assured you will be taken care of by them!"
"Came to downtown dental with my husband for his first dental implant. He was very nervous on getting this procedure done.. From his experience he said the staff were super friendly made him feel very welcomed..the dentist made his procedure quick and painless my husband didn't even need his medication for the swelling or pain ... Highly recommend... We Will be coming here from now on for our dental needs."
