Don't trust your smile to just any dentist. As a Los Angeles dental implants specialist, I understand what it takes to make your teeth shine. In cultures across the globe, a dazzling smile is a sign of health, status, and vitality. Carefully aligned, pearly white teeth are perhaps the most important component of a radiant smile, and strong teeth are essential for chewing and speaking clearly. If your teeth are painful or unattractive, know that you have more options than ever to achieve the smile of your dreams.
I can help you achieve the smile makeover of your dreams. I've been helping dental patients for over two decades and understand that your teeth can be important contributors to your overall health and beauty.

If you are embarrassed by missing teeth or tired of not being able to eat your favorite foods, I may recommend dental implants, a permanent way to replace gaps in your smile. An increasing number of my patients choose a dental implant to replace missing teeth with artificial ones that in most cases can't be distinguished from the real thing. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from high-strength titanium that I position in the jaw to anchor a replacement tooth or bridge. Imagine how good it will feel to smile, speak, and eat with confidence, leaving your discomfort behind.
Crowns, Bridges & Veneers
A crown, bridge, or dental veneers can improve the look of your smile, naturally replacing and enhancing teeth that are missing, cracked, or badly discolored. Dental crowns are custom-designed caps that fit over your existing tooth to increase strength and restore appearance of weak, misshapen, or cracked teeth. Bridges use crowns on either side of a tooth gap to anchor false teeth, making it easier to chew and speak while preventing teeth from becoming misaligned. Veneers are thin shells that cover the front surface of a tooth, ideal for patients who have small gaps between their teeth, or whose teeth are discolored, worn down, or chipped.
Your teeth need to do more than look good – they help you speak clearly and chew food comfortably. Misaligned jaws and teeth that are crowded or out of place often cause my patients extreme discomfort and lead to excessive wear. Orthodontics is the specialized branch of dentistry that repositions crooked teeth and jaws. The most common orthodontic device is braces, but, as a Los Angeles and Beverly Hills periodontist, I offer several other orthodontic treatments that improve both the general appearance of your smile and the functionality of your teeth and jaws, such as Invisalign®.
Laser Tooth Whitening
The dental care market is flooded with tooth whitening products, but if you've tried some of them, you've probably been disappointed by poor results and teeth that don't look much whiter. Also, if you have sensitive teeth and gums, many of these over the counter treatments are too harsh and cause discomfort. Laser tooth whitening offers Los Angeles residents a fast, comfortable way to remove stains and discoloration caused by disease, heredity, smoking, or drinking coffee and cola. I perform laser tooth whitening in my office, with most patients completing their treatment in about one hour.
