Dictionary.com defines “cosmetic” as “superficial measures to make something appear better, more attractive, or more impressive.” We also use the words “makeup” and “cosmetics” interchangeably when we refer to products like mascara, blush, and eyeshadow. Dr. Don Mungcal offers a number of dental services to beautifully enhance the smile, but they are not to be confused with cosmetics. In the capable hands of this Los Angeles dentist, cosmetic dentistry provides long lasting improvement that looks entirely natural, 24/7/365.
A few of the cosmetic dentistry options available at Downtown Dental
- Teeth whitening – No matter how perfect your makeup is, yellowed or dingy teeth still detract from your appearance. With a dentist’s oversight, teeth whitening is very effective, and has low risk of sensitivity. Downtown Dental offers three convenient options – fast in-office whitening, private at-home treatment, or a combination approach. With periodic re-treatment, teeth whitening keeps your smile bright indefinitely.
- Porcelain veneers – Dental veneers are a premier smile enhancement technique. They cover visible surfaces of “smile teeth,” masking enamel flaws, chips, cracks, and old, dark dental work. They serve as “instant orthodontics,” giving the appearance of faultless alignment and spacing. With good oral hygiene, porcelain veneers last many years.
- Dental implants – The only way to disguise a missing tooth is to stop smiling! Dr. Mungcal offers a lifetime solution with dental implants. This technique restores the appearance of the smile with a beautiful porcelain crown. The implant itself is an artificial tooth root that helps to prevent bone deterioration, so facial appearance stays fuller and more youthful.
We all want to look better, more attractive, and more impressive. Improving your smile with dental treatments is like cosmetics that don’t wash off. To get started on your personal smile improvement journey, call 213-863-9464 to schedule a consultation in Los Angeles.
