Cosmetic Dentistry

Is your smile making the right first impression? Did you know that it’s one of the first features people notice when they meet you?

A beautiful smile says a lot about you, and it gives you the self-assurance you need to achieve your personal and professional goals.

If you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, you may choose to hide your smile, even when you don’t realize it. This could give the false impression that you are unhappy or unapproachable.

Whether your smile just needs a quick upgrade, or a complete makeover, your Los Angeles dentist, Dr. Steven Chen can help enhance your smile with various cosmetic procedures.

Dental Bonding

Even small imperfections such as chips or spacing between your teeth can diminish your smile. Dental bonding is an excellent and affordable way to improve your smile and correct issues such as:

  • Fractures, wear, or chipping
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Size discrepancies
  • Slight misalignment issues

Using composite resin, which is the same material used for dental fillings, Dr. Chen is able to correct the problem without the loss of any tooth structure. Composite is customized to blend flawlessly with your teeth so it complements your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

The ultimate upgrade for your smile is porcelain veneers because they not only repair many of the same issues that bonding does, they can also completely remake your smile by changing the shape, size, and color of your teeth. When you admire those beautiful Hollywood smiles, remember that it’s likely they too have been enhanced with porcelain veneers!

The process for veneers usually takes a couple of weeks and two appointments, and Dr. Chen will work closely with you to design the smile of your dreams. He’ll get your teeth ready for your new restorations during the first appointment, and you’ll leave with temporary veneers to try out so you can get used to the feel and look of your new teeth.

After your veneers have been crafted at a local dental laboratory, you’ll return to have your final veneers permanently placed. You can plan on enjoying your beautiful new smile in a matter of weeks!
