We’re here for you in the most beautiful smile possible, while strengthening your health!

A Stunning Refinement

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures for a reason. These ceramic caps provide a gorgeous enamel enhancement, and are simple to maintain for decades to come. This process can repair broken or chipped teeth, and are commonly used in restoration. But their ability to improve your appearance is unparalleled!

This process actually got its start here in Southern California in the 1920s. Through the creativity of a Hollywood dentist, these have evolved into a procedure that is popular with anyone with a pulic-facing persona. From actors and news anchors to real estate agents, a new set of porcelain veneers may help you to bring the best first impression possible.

A Beautiful Replacement

If you have concerns that affect the structural health of the tooth, then veneers may not be a suitable fit for your smile. Instead, your dentist may suggest the possibility of a dental implant. This process includes the placement of a threaded titanium post within the bone of the jaw. A new prosthetic tooth then sits atop this sturdy base and can be used as a beautiful, functional new replacement.

The unique properties of titanium allow for it to grow together with our bone. Instead of fighting this metal as a foreign object within the body, it is accepted due to its specific chemistry. These posts can be used for any number of possible prosthetics, even up to a full mouth denture solution!
