Experience You Can Trust
Why are we so confident that one visit will make you a loyal patient? Many reasons. Dr. Latner's trustworthy manner, and ability to explain treatment options simply and in terms patients appreciate. His straightforward advice culled from a long history as a leader in the cosmetic and general dentistry field is another merit. Dr. Latner loves showing patients what cosmetic dentistry can do for them, giving them previews of the smile they can achieve with treatments like porcelain veneers, dental implants, Invisalign clear braces, and more.
Care for Your Whole Family
Besides offering care that meets the general, cosmetic, and restorative care of adults, Dr. Latner can also address the needs of children through pediatric dentistry. Providing a space where adults and their children can have back-to-back appointments is one way we’re helping our LA patients take care of their important needs in a way that works with their schedule. What’s more, when children are taught to make brushing and flossing a habit early on, it can lead to a lifetime of diligent care at home and, subsequently, good health.
Straighter Teeth in Six Months
Our team at Westside Dental Associates knows how important it is to have a confident smile. That’s why we offer the Six Month Smiles braces system. Instead of using aligners or traditional brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to move teeth over a period of half a year. As a fast, easy, and discreet option, Six Month Smiles also provides conservative, predictable results. If you wish you had a straighter smile but don’t want to commit to traditional braces, let Dr. Latner and his LA dental team talk to you about the difference that Six Month Smiles can make in your life.
Personalized Care for Los Angeles and Beyond
Regardless of whether we’re delivering care to a child or an adult, our goal is always the same—to provide personalized care. We’re all susceptible to common conditions, like gum disease and tooth decay, but no one has exactly the same needs. With personalized care from Dr. Latner and our caring team at Westside Dental Associates, we can help you and your family build and preserve a healthy, beautiful smiles.

When the thought of having to visit a dentist sends chills down the spines of many adults, it is easy to see how terrifying the idea can be to small children. It may not be easy, but it is important to teach your little one that there is nothing to be afraid of, and that the dentist is there to help them and their teeth to grow healthy and strong. If you can establish a healthy and hygienic oral care routine in conjunction with regular dental check-ups, your child is much more likely to go through life without the need for extensive dental work later.

In most cases, when dental care is needed, it’s the protective outer layer of enamel that’s being treated. In some cases, though, the inner pulp, commonly referred to as the “nerve,” needs special attention. This is typically the case after an injury or tooth fracture, or because of a deep cavity. In any of these cases, the tooth could develop an infection. If left untreated, the infection will kill the pulp, putting the tooth in danger of being lost.
To prevent this, it’s important to see your local dentist early. That’s because a tooth in danger of getting infected can be saved with a service known as a root canal.Read more...

Earlier this month, we talked about our preference for white fillings, especially in connection with a tool like air abrasion. We cited their resiliency and appearance as key reasons for this; not only can the bond between a tooth and a white filling last for many years, white fillings support the natural structure of teeth in a way that metal fillings don’t, and they look completely natural.
Here’s what you can expect from treatment with white fillings.

Today, though, dentists like Dr. Latner of Westside Dental Associates can provide important care without always relying on a needle or a drill. Using a contemporary tool like air abrasion, our Los Angeles patients can enjoy a more comfortable visit that also leaves more of their natural smile intact.
Air abrasion is a drilling alternative that uses a high-powered stream of air or powder to remove small amounts of decay
