Teeth whitening treatments

Professional dental whitening treatments lift existing stains, and help to restore the dental enamel to its original level of whiteness. These treatments are fast, effective, and affordable.

Dental bonding

This is one of the most versatile aesthetic and functional treatments available today. Using dental resin, our dentist can fix cracks and chips, cover discolored enamel with fresh and white resin, and even reshape poorly proportioned teeth. The entire dental bonding process can be completed in just one dental appointment.

Porcelain veneers

These are individual crafted aesthetic restorations that are applied to the patient’s natural teeth. Using veneers, you can straighten the appearance of your smile, resurface your teeth with white and bright porcelain, and close gaps between teeth. You can also use veneers to correct existing dental damage.


Invisalign is a patient-friendly and innovative alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. Invisalign straightens your smile using a series of clear plastic aligners. Invisalign is completely metal-free; patients of all ages love how discreet and comfortable this orthodontic option is!

Many patients are able to meet their dental goals using just one of these treatments. Some people, however, will want to combine treatments in order to achieve their dream smiles. Our Santa Monica dental team is here to walk you through the key benefits of each aesthetic option, so that you can build a treatment plan that works for you, as an individual.
