Bonding is a dental procedure in which a composite resin is adhered to the tooth in order to improve the appearance of your smile. It repairs chips, cracks and broken teeth and also covers badly stained teeth. It’s also used when patients have gaps on their teeth to fill in the space between them. Composite resin can be shaded to match the color of your teeth!
Composite Bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry because it gives a natural look by rebuilding your teeth and improving your smile. The procedure is inexpensive, fast, relatively painless, and effective but it tends to break down and discolor in several years and will need to be replaced.
Porcelain Veneers – Lumineers
Porcelain Veneers are thin layers of custom made porcelain, that can be made as thin as a contact lens, and be placed over your natural teeth. Veneers are used to change the color, shape, size and spacing of your teeth so you can smile all day long. Unlike natural teeth, Porcelain Veneers do not discolor or wear over time.
If you have any of these problems, Veneers can be the answer:
- Spaces between your teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, discolored teeth
- Misshaped or crooked teeth
- Uneven teeth and gum line
Lumineers is a brand name for a type of veneer. Our cosmetic dentist in Glendale recommends lumineers because they are safe, painless, strong and thin.

A dental implant is a metal post (titanium) that replaces the root of the natural tooth. After an implant is placed into the underlying bone, artificial tooth is attached to it, enabling normal function. Implant dentistry is an exciting and wonderful way to restore a smile, replace missing teeth or secure loose dentures. Implants can truly change your life for the better.
A dental implant is the best solution for a missing tooth (or teeth). This procedure is highly recommended to patients because it is simple, virtually painless, and efficient. It’s main advantage is being able to perfectly replace lost teeth. The patient won’t notice the difference between his natural teeth and the implant. It avoids having to wear prosthesis, and with proper care it will last forever.
The procedure doesn’t hurt, however the patient may experience discomfort in the following days. The pain can be managed with common analgesics. Dental implants can enhance your self-esteem by providing a healthy and brighter smile that leaves you with an improved self-confidence. Our dentist and staff in Glendale have the experience and professional dental training to make implants work for you!
Dentures / Partials
Dentures are an artificial and removable extension that is used to cover the partial or total lack of teeth. Dentures can be removable or fixed and can also be complete or partial. Complete dentures are used on patients that are missing all of their teeth, while partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth still remain.
Dentures replace missing teeth and can help you recover a beautiful and attractive smile. If you’ve lost all or part of your natural teeth from a dental disease or accident, dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile lasting up to ten years!
A dental restoration is a procedure to restore damaged or missing teeth due to accidents or infections. They can frequently save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. Restorations include fillings, inlays and onlays, veneers, crowns, implants, bridges, and dentures.
