Cosmetic Dentistry

You should feel completely confident in your smile, but if your dentition presents one or more abnormalities, then you may be having trouble fully expressing who you are. If you have cosmetic concerns about your teeth, then aesthetic solutions at La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics can assist you in creating the smile you have always wanted. By practicing conservative approaches to dentistry, Dr. Kohani is able to provide beautiful restorations for patients while ensuring their dental health as well as the functionality of their teeth.

Some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer include:

Veneers
Minor structural issues can easily be fixed with dental veneers, which are thin white covers that are placed over the teeth to create a cosmetically appealing smile. Veneers can mask minor alignment issues, gaps in between teeth, broken or chipped teeth, as well as teeth that look too long or short as compared to their gums. Dr. Kohani utilizes no-prep veneer options as a conservative way to preserve the natural tooth enamel and limits the amount of adjustments made to the overall dentition.
Ceramic Crowns
When teeth have become worn down or experienced trauma that has caused a tooth to break or chip, a ceramic crown can be created as a natural-looking cap that is placed over the affected tooth. Dr. Kohani provides durable ceramic crowns using CEREC technology, which is able to produce tooth restorations in a single dental visit.
One-Visit Smile Makeover
Often, the cosmetic concerns you have with your smile include more than just a single tooth. Sometimes the entire dentition can pose cosmetic and structural problems, in which case a complete smile makeover may be necessary to help you achieve a beautiful smile. With the use of CEREC technology, many of the restorations needed to complete your smile makeover can be created and placed in just one visit to Dr. Kohani’s office, making it a quick and efficient way to receive the smile you have always wanted.
Teeth Whitening
Whether due to smoking, drinking certain beverages or taking medication, the teeth can easily become stained and yellowed over time. It’s best to reduce your intake of the substances causing your teeth to stain, but to get your teeth back to their natural, beautiful, white glow, you can receive a teeth whitening procedure in a simple one-hour treatment session with Dr. Kohani. Additionally, take-home whitening kits are available so that you can keep your teeth white at all times.
BOTOX
BOTOX is gaining popularity in patients who wish to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing invasive surgery. In a series of injections, these injectable treatments can alleviate forehead lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles around the lips and more. BOTOX can also be used specifically for dental concerns, particularly if a patient exhibits excessive gingival display (known as a gummy smile) or certain issues with TMJ.

The right cosmetic treatment option for you can be determined with a consultation at La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics. If you would like more information about the procedures we offer, contact Dr. Kohani at 858-622-1007 and schedule an appointment.
