Wear Your Best Laguna Hills Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

DR. ROTH’S concept of Family Dental Practice office is simple. Our office believes that a family should have a personal dentist who cares about their well being. Knowing our patient’s history is important as many of the dental problems we see today are genetic in nature.

A person’s lifestyle and habits may also affect their teeth. Understanding these factors improves our ability to reach an appropriate diagnosis for patients and knowing our patients over a period of years enhances that ability even further.

At Laguna Hills dental, we promise to do the utmost to help you obtain your dental goals in all aspects of dental care. We take care of children and adults and even though we see a lot of cosmetic patients, we offer all types of dental care. We provide complete gentle family and COSMETIC DENTAL CARE to people of all ages — from preschoozl age to adolescents, through adult life.

Should I Get Cosmetic Dentistry?

You might think cosmetic dentistry is only for models and celebrities, but your smile is a valuable part of your self-confidence and your interaction with others. We provide various levels of cosmetic dentistry to help patients just like you achieve a smile they can be proud to wear.

If you’re unsure whether cosmetic dentistry is right for you, consider these five questions:

  • Am I happy with the way my smile looks?
  • What do people think when they see my smile?
  • Do I avoid laughing or smiling in public?
  • If I could change one thing about my smile, what would I choose?
  • How would a more appealing smile change my daily life?

Cosmetic Services We Provide

Dr. Roth and his team offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental options to help you enhance your smile the way you want.

Laguna Hills Teeth Whitening for a Vibrant Smile

Porcelain Veneers Transform Your Smile

Each VENEER IS A CERAMIC SHELL bonded to the front surface of the tooth, custom-designed to look natural and flattering within your smile. Veneers conceal a variety of cosmetic issues, such as chips, gaps, cracks, wear, misshapen teeth, and deep discoloration. Veneers can even be used to hide minor misalignments. Dr. Roth is well known in Laguna Hills and throughout Orange County for his high-quality dental work, including porcelain veneers for cosmetic and restorative treatments. With his expertise, he can quickly advise you on which type of veneer will work best and provide long lasting, beautiful results. We can also combine veneers with other procedures and sophisticated technology for a full mouth rehabilitation. The goal is your optimal oral health and a more appealing smile.

Cosmetic Enhancement with CEREC® Same-Day Crowns

Whether you need a crown for your health or aesthetics, we can make the process quick and simple with our CEREC SAME-DAY CROWNS. Using state-of-the-art technology, we can create a digital impression of your tooth, which goes directly to our CEREC machine. This machine then fabricates the custom crown out of a block of high-quality ceramic, specially chosen to match the shade of your teeth. The milling process is done right in our office, and within a couple of hours, your new crown is complete and ready for placement. Dr. Roth expertly places, adjusts, and bonds the crown. When he’s finished, you can walk out with your new crown in place the same day.

What Are Inlays and Onlays?

These customized restorations provide a convenient option that falls between a filling and a crown. Inlays are used to restore the tooth’s biting surface between the cusps (corners), while onlays can include one or more corners as well. Like crowns, these prosthetics are expertly crafted from a digital impression, then bonded to the tooth. However, they take up much less surface space than crowns and don’t require much alteration of your tooth, preserving more of your natural enamel.

Veneers, Crowns, Inlays & Onlays: Which Do I Need?

Best for: Concealing cosmetic issues and minor damage

Crowns

Purpose: Aesthetic & restorative

Covers: The entire tooth above the gum line

Preparation: Complete reshaping of the tooth to accommodate the crown

Best for: Altering tooth size and shape, protecting teeth with damage and decay or after root canal treatment, completing a dental implant

Inlays/Onlays

The Benefits of Amalgam-Free Restorations

Beyond their cosmetic appeal, today’s composite and ceramic restorations offer numerous benefits for your smile.

  • Look Natural – Non-metal restorations can be colored and shaped to match the surrounding enamel so they won’t stand out in your smile.
  • Preserve Your Teeth – Composite restorations can fit into smaller spaces and bond to the enamel, so less preparation is needed for placement.
  • Heavy Metal-Free – While amalgam restorations contain traces of mercury, composite and ceramic restorations contain no metal and are considered biosafe.

Can Invisalign Fix My Crooked Teeth?

You’ve likely been unhappy with your crooked, crowded, or uneven teeth for quite a while, but aren’t sure if braces are the right call for you. Fortunately, INVISALIGN CLEAR BRACES provide a discreet, comfortable alternative.

Our practice offers Invisalign treatment to teens and adults with mild to moderate dental misalignment. This innovative treatment uses a series of custom trays to guide teeth into a healthier position using gentle pressure at specific targeted points. You’ll wear each set for two weeks before switching to the next, each one gradually moving your teeth closer to their goal.

Who Can Wear Invisalign?

Our office provides Invisalign braces to teens and adults with mild to moderate cases of crowding, spacing, or misalignment. Since the aligners are removable, it’s important to be diligent about keeping them on for the full 22 hours a day (apart from eating and brushing) to ensure that the treatment is effective.

Do You Have to Wear a Retainer After Invisalign?

Yes, retainers are part of the process. They help keep your teeth from moving back into place after treatment. Our office provides a variety of retainers, including standard removable retainers and lingual retainers for those who want a fixed option. We also provide night guard retainers for patients with a habit of grinding their teeth at night.

How Your Gums Impact Your Smile Aesthetic

Most cosmetic dental options focus on teeth, but your gums are an integral part of your smile’s appearance and health. Any cosmetic treatment you receive needs healthy gums as a foundation to last. That’s why we prioritize your oral health first and provide cosmetic treatment only after your teeth and gums are healthy.

Improving Your Gums with Dental Laser Treatment

At our practice, our talented periodontist specializes in caring for your gums. She uses a dental laser both to improve your gum health and to enhance your aesthetic appeal. Our laser gum treatments include:

Laser Scaling and Root Planing

If you suffer from gum disease, lasers can provide quick and effective treatment. Dental lasers can eliminate bacteria in pockets under the gums, and they’re much gentler and more comfortable than more traditional tools.

Laser Gum Contouring

If you have an uneven gum line or a “gummy smile,” dental lasers can reshape your gum tissue, revealing more of your teeth and boosting your smile’s appeal. Using lasers makes this treatment simple and non-invasive, shortens recovery time, and is gentle enough that you may not even need anesthetics!

Is a Smile Makeover Right for Me?

If you’re looking for a smile transformation that a single cosmetic dental treatment won’t fix, a smile makeover is the next step. Each smile makeover is customized to the needs of the individual, combining two or more treatments to achieve the desired result.

First, Dr. Roth discusses your smile goals to understand what you want to achieve. After examining your smile, he’ll work with you to evaluate your options and determine which combination of treatments will give you the results you’re looking for.
