Cosmetic Dentistry

At Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry, we take all your personal cosmetic dental needs very seriously. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence.  Thanks to the expertise of Dr. Tabesh, we are able to improve your teeth and smile with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.

  • Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.

  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.

  • Improve or correct bites.

  • Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.

  • Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.

  • Replace missing teeth.

  • Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.

Composite Fillings

Fillings

If your dentist determines you need a dental filling, he’ll educate you about your unique situation and the best restorative material options available. These options include gold, porcelain, composite, glass ionomers and ceramic.

The doctor will help you choose the best material for your particular case, which will vary based on several factors, including the location and extent of the tooth decay, where and how the dental filling will be placed, the chewing load the tooth will need to bear, and the type of restoration needed, whether it’s a simple filling, a crown, a veneer or a bridge.

 

A common filling material used at Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry is Composite. Composite can used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. Although they are very durable and will last many years, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

 

Regardless of which restorative material you and your dentist decide is best for you, you’ll walk out of Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry with a long-lasting, durable restoration and a beautiful smile.

 

At Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry, we see many patients with cracked, worn teeth, or teeth damaged by tooth decay. In these cases, we typically recommend placing dental crowns to strengthen the tooth or to improve its shape and esthetics

 

This cosmetic restoration covers the visible portion of the broken tooth, essentially becoming the new surface. That means the crown must look and feel like a natural tooth, which we’re able to achieve with porcelain. Porcelain crowns offer patients exceptional esthetics and a long-lasting restoration they can feel good about.

 

We also recommend dental crowns in other situations, such as to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a dental implant. No matter why you need a dental crown, we’ll make sure your unique restoration restores function and improves your smile.

Crowns (Caps)

 

Porcelain Bridges

A Dental Bridge is designed to fill the gaps and spaces between missing teeth. A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Once placed, they restore patients’ smiles and improve their ability to chew and speak.

 

These fixed restorations also alleviate stress on the bite, allow patients to maintain their face shape, and help prevent teeth from drifting out of position—which can cause other functional as well as cosmetic problems. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.

 

At Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry, we place dental bridges made of porcelain, gold and alloys, as well as a combination of these materials. The doctor will bond the structure onto surrounding teeth for support, giving you a beautiful, pain-free smile that will stand the test of time.

Veneers

When it comes to veneers, Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry is a top choice. Veneers are one of the most exciting techniques in cosmetic dentistry today that involves bonding a thin veneer made of porcelain to the enamel tooth surface. This painless and easy process can literally give you an instant new smile.

 

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile and give you the confidence that you’ve been looking for.

 

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Creating a beautiful and uniform smile.

  • Crooked teeth.

  • Misshapen teeth.

  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.

  • Teeth that are too small or large.

  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.

  • Worn or chipped teeth.

 

After your veneers are placed you will receive care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.

Teeth Whitening

At Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer At-Home or In-Office Whitening, or a combination of the two. It is possible to brighten up your smile without the need for invasive treatment. Smile whitening is one of the most common procedure performed here at Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry. Our patients love that whitening doesn’t damage teeth and that results are fast and easily attainable.

We offer three smile whitening options: 

  1. Our most popular option is At-Home Bleaching Trays. We will make you custom fitted clear bleaching trays that are worn at home with professional whitening gel. This whitening process can take a couple weeks up to a couple months to achieve the level of desired whitening.

  2. Our second bleaching option is our in-office professional teeth whitening, where we will apply a specialized, concentrated bleach in order to expedite the whitening process.

  3. Our third method involves both, the At-Home and In-Office options.  

You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays. We will encourage you to see us regularly to help maintain your beautiful, healthy, white smile.

Invisalign

We are a Certified Invisalign provider!  Contact Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after.  Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective for straightening and giving you the confident smile, you’ve envisioned. 

 

The aligners are virtually invisible and removable so you can eat and drink whatever you want during treatment. Brushing and flossing is easy with removable aligners. NO wires!! Which means fewer problems and adjustments.   Each set of aligners are worn about two weeks, removing only to eat, drink, brush and floss.  As you replace each set the teeth move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to their final positions.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing teeth for patients who have one or more missing teeth. They look and feel natural, and if cared for properly, implants give patients beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.

 

When you lose a tooth, it impacts many areas of your life. Not only does it make you less confident in your smile, it can lead to difficulty eating, digesting your food and may even effect how you talk and look. Tooth loss often causes stress and discomfort, which is why our team at Toluca Lake Cosmetic Dentistry is committed to giving patients their smiles back through implant dentistry.

 

Dental implants are versatile, and that means we can develop a treatment plan that works for you based on your unique situation. We use advanced 3D X-ray imaging to help ensure the process is smooth and the result is successful. Give our office a call and we’ll determine together if implants are right for you.
