Tarzana Dentist Cosmetic Dentistry


Technological advancements have elevated dentistry to a level which is much more than merely filling cavities, treating gum problems or fixing braces on teenagers’ teeth. Now, the specialized area of cosmetic dentistry concerns itself not just with the functionality of teeth and other structures of the oral cavity, but also with their aesthetic appearance.

We live in a world that places great importance on the way we look. And everyone deserves to look and feel their best.

Tarzana cosmetic dentistry is an easy way to get an attractive smile and harmonize your facial features. Tell us, who wouldn’t want to look their best? At Tarzana cosmetic dentist, we help you look your absolute best.

Here are some of the procedures available at the Tarzana Cosmetic Dentist:

Teeth Whitening

This is one of the most popular dental procedures at the Tarzana cosmetic dentist. Who doesn’t love a dazzling Hollywood smile?

This process involves lightening of the stains that accumulate on the teeth over a long period of time. The discolorations are often caused by changes in the mineral structure of the teeth, making the enamel porous. Another reason is also staining caused by bacterial pigments, certain food items and tobacco. The teeth whitening procedure involves usage of oxidizing agents like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide activated by a high intensity light. The entire procedure can be completed in less than two hours.

Enamel Shaping

It procedure is also called several other names such as enameloplasty, odontoplasty, recontouring, reshaping, slenderizing, stripping etc. It is a simple process that enables your cosmetic dentist to change the shape or size of the teeth to the required dimensions. A perfect row of teeth is the result of this process.


Bonding is the answer to chipped or cracked teeth. It involves a process where a composite material that resembles the color of the natural teeth is applied on the surface of teeth and then hardened. Bonding involves three steps: applying the material on the surface of the teeth, shaping it and then polishing it to a perfect finish.


They are thin custom-made wafers of materials such as porcelain. These shells are bonded onto the surface of the teeth. They are ideal for problems like discoloration, disproportionate teeth, cracking, chipping etc. They are also useful in closing the gaps between teeth.

Veneers are of two types – composite and porcelain. Porcelain veneers closely resemble the natural teeth, as they are thin and semi-transparent sheets of porcelain. Composite veneers use composite materials like resins and are ideal in cases of minor tooth repair.


They are the upgraded versions of veneers, and are made of a special kind of patented porcelain. Since they are much thinner than the veneers, the dentist does not have to remove much of your natural enamel to bond them to your teeth.

Dental Restorations

Certain fillings and restorative materials are also used in the enhancements of the teeth structure. They include tooth colored fillings and dental implants. They are made of direct restorative materials like dental amalgams, glass ionomer cement and composite resins, and also from indirect restorative materials like acrylic, porcelain, zirconia, gold and other metals.

Dental treatment and enhancement procedures are highly personal and could differ from person to person. At Tarzana cosmetic dentist, we adopt a holistic approach to dental and overall health, and also provide personalized care.

With the experience and expertise of Dr.Chaves, Tarzana cosmetic dentistry is the answer to all your dental problems.

If you're looking to transform your smile quickly and easily, Veneers and Lumineers are two great options to consider. At Tarzana Dentist, Dr. Chaves and his team will deliver comprehensive results in the correction of crooked teeth, fixing gaps between teeth, repairing chipped teeth, and whitening yellow or discolored teeth. Veneers and Lumineers offer some of the most dramatic and effective results in repairing and perfecting your smile.

There are two types of veneers - composite and porcelain. Porcelain Veneers are a thin and semi-transparent sheet of porcelain that is considered a more natural-looking approach in smile repair. A thin sheet of porcelain is bonded over the surface of the tooth. Composite veneers are constructed from a composite material, such as resin and are utilized in more extreme cases of tooth disrepair. Lumineers are made of patented porcelain that is thinner than any Veneer on the market today. No matter what your smile aspirations may be, Veneers and Lumineers are a viable option to fix any aspect of your teeth you are not happy with!
