Cosmetic Dentistry

Do you ever catch yourself covering a smile or a laugh with your hand? When you have your picture taken, do you tend to smile with your mouth closed?

Your smile is often the first thing that people notice about you, especially when you are making a first impression. Do you feel like the appearance of your smile is holding you back?

Is it time for a change?

At Lomita-Torrance Dental, we are skilled at transforming our patients’ smiles. We can help you have beautiful teeth and a smile that you can’t resist flashing every chance you get.

Call us for a consultation and find out if one our cosmetic dentistry procedures is right for you.

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes all it takes to improve your smile is professional teeth whitening. Our office uses Zoom teeth whitening, which offers both an in-office treatment and an at-home program that makes it easy for you to get the professional results your want in the way that fits best with your goals and your lifestyle.

Following your whitening treatment, we’ll discuss your results and help you decide on the best maintenance option for you.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can completely transform a smile. From whitening bleach-resistant discolorations to closing gaps to repairing chips and other cosmetic damage, veneers can give you the smile you’ve always wanted but probably thought was impossible.

Veneers are thin, durable shells made of porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth. We will work with you to choose veneers that give you a beautiful smile and look completely natural.

Porcelain Crowns

When your teeth have more extensive damage because of injury or decay, porcelain crowns are the cosmetic choice for repair. Unlike ceramic-fused-to-metal crowns, which are easily visible and identifiable as dental work, 100% porcelain crowns look exactly like your own natural teeth. Nobody except you and your Lomita-Torrance dentist will know that you have had dental work completed.

Will My Insurance Cover My Cosmetic Procedure?

Insurance companies typically will not cover a purely cosmetic dental procedure. In cases where a cosmetic repair is also fixing a functionality problem (such as in the case of crowns), insurance coverage varies, and we will work with you and your insurance company to determine your level of coverage and how much you will be responsible for.

Our office does offer financing options and Care Credit so you can get the care you need without breaking the budget. We are happy to discuss these options with you to help you determine what will work best for you. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

We believe that feeling good about yourself is an important part of your healthcare and your wellbeing, and we want to help you in any way we can. Give us a call today to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
