Correcting The Shape Of Certain Teeth Can Improve Your Smile

An even, healthy, symmetrical smile can give you great confidence. Unfortunately, it only takes one misshapen tooth to compromise the way you look, and make you reluctant to share your smile with the world. At our Santa Monica, CA dental practice, we understand how damages, natural wear and tear, and even congenital issues can lead to certain teeth disrupting your appearance. With the right cosmetic dental procedure, we can make sure that your issue is resolved in order to boost your confidence in the way you look. While we can focus exclusively on this concern, we can also provide care to help you deal with discoloration, or problems with dental alignment that negatively affect your appearance. (more…)

The only way to make significant changes to your smile is to make significant changes to your tooth structure…right?

Do You Need To Know The Cause Of Your Dental Discoloration?

When you compare your smile in old pictures to your smile today, you can tell that the color of your teeth have changed.

At our Santa Monica, CA dental office, we are prepared to help you brighten your smile. To make sure your experience with cosmetic dentistry is a successful one, we can take the time to determine what is affecting your tooth color, and recommend the appropriate treatment. (more…)

Hiding A Gap In Your Smile Caused By A Small Tooth

If you have a tooth that is smaller than it should be, its effect on your smile can leave you less than thrilled.

At our Santa Monica, CA dental office, we can discuss your options for cosmetically improving your smile! For an undersized tooth, we can provide a custom dental veneer that corrects the visible flaw. In addition to making a tooth look larger, the veneer can actually close the space between it and its neighbor.
