What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a subspecialty of dentistry that improves the aesthetic appearance of your smile. A cosmetic dentist is like an artist, shaping and re-creating teeth to make the perfect smile. Dr. Matthew, DDS, MICOI received special training to create and shape teeth that look natural to fit each unique face. Cosmetic dentistry is different from general dentistry because general dentistry focuses on dental health and maintenance, whereas cosmetic dentistry seeks to improve the aesthetics and function of the teeth. Dr. Matthew can repair:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Gap teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Permanently discolored teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Missing teeth

Dr. Matthew, DDS, MICOI can improve the appearance of teeth with the following cosmetic procedures:

  • Porcelain crowns
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Invisalign braces
  • Dental implants
  • Dental bonding

Advancements have been made in cosmetic dentistry – the materials used are durable, have a similar feel to natural teeth, and can match the natural shade of teeth. Whether you desire to fix a crooked tooth, want whiter teeth or need a smile makeover, Dr. Matthew, DDS, MICOI can help you achieve the smile you want.

We improve smiles throughout Los Angeles, Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Venice, Hermosa Beach and the surrounding areas of Southern California.

You can have the smile you desire. Please contact us today to set up a consultation with a Westchester cosmetic dentist.
