Cosmetic dentistry is the collection of treatments that provide an aesthetic improvement to the teeth and gums. In some cases, these procedures can assist in the functionality of the bite as well.
Dr. Robert M. Solow offers Woodland Hills and Calabasas patients a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions. An experienced practitioner who provides gentle and effective care, Dr. Solow and his team can address tooth damage, discoloration, and misalignment—as well as gum-related problems—to give you a complete and more confident smile.
Our Approach to Cosmetic Dentistry
Our solutions include traditional treatments and procedures as well as advanced dental techniques. Learn more about each.
If you prefer a brighter, healthier-looking, and more noticeable smile, consider professional teeth whitening. Dr. Solow combines an in-office procedure and customized take-home trays to improve the whiteness of teeth dramatically.
Both adults and adolescents can benefit from this approach to teeth-straightening. An alternative to braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom dental trays that are transparent, removable, and unobtrusive to realign the teeth. This allows you to smile more comfortably and naturally while you wear them.
If you have longstanding and non-treatable gum disease or if many of your teeth are damaged, you may benefit from traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures, or dental implants. Each treatment has the ability to give you back a complete set of upper and lower teeth.
If you have teeth that have spaces or are damaged or discolored, bonding may be able to repair them. The treatment uses a tooth-colored resin to restore or reface areas of need. For most Woodland Hills and Calabasas patients, this cosmetic dentistry procedure only requires one visit.
Unlike other materials, such as gold and amalgam, tooth-colored fillings closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Dr. Solow can use fillings to repair damage, add strength to a tooth’s structure, and provide you with a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
If the front surfaces of your teeth have cosmetic damage—such as chipping, staining, or pitting—porcelain veneers offer an effective and efficient solution. Dr. Solow can use either traditional or same-day veneers to give your damaged teeth new front surfaces
Dr. Solow employs dental crowns to add strength and renew the appearance of damaged or decaying teeth. He offers both traditional and same-day dental crowns so that Woodland Hills and Calabasas patients can receive high-quality care quickly.
Our board-certified specialist, Dr. Donna Klauser, provides a number of cosmetic dental procedures for Woodland Hills and Calabasas patients, including treatments to improve a gummy smile, repair gum recession, and address other aesthetic concerns. Many times cosmetic dental procedures are combinations of Periodontal and restorative services requiring treatment by both Dr. Klauser and Dr. Solow.
Our practice’s cosmetic dentistry solutions are comprehensive enough to address almost any challenge that is preventing you from having the smile you want. Whether you could benefit from one or more of the above treatments, our team will prepare a plan based on your individual goals.
What to Expect with Cosmetic Dentistry
During your initial consultation, Dr. Solow will talk with you about the areas of concern you have and what you’d like to achieve. Some Woodland Hills and Calabasas patients visit us with a specific idea of the features they want to improve. Others have general concerns about their smile.
With many years of experience, Dr. Solow can pinpoint the factors that contribute to these concerns. He will discuss the various solutions that are available, compare the benefits of each, and help you decide on the best approach to your care.
In some cases, Dr. Solow can combine treatments into a single visit, allowing you to see significant improvement in a short amount of time. Other cosmetic dentistry treatments may require multiple visits or at-home maintenance for the best results. With any of the options described above, you can expect supportive, expert care personalized to your needs.
