Let’s be honest, your smile makes you frown. You’ve got a few chipped teeth, staining from all the coffee you drink, and short teeth that leave gaps in your grin. You want to upgrade your pearly whites, but you don’t want braces – and they wouldn’t fix the discoloration or chips anyway. You wish there was a way you could treat everything at once, rather than going through multiple procedures. Luckily for you, porcelain veneers can address these issues in with a single treatment method. The team at Westside Dental Associates, your award-winning cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles, educates you on this durable, natural-looking upgrade in this post.

Want to take ten years off of your age? Have your teeth whitened. Need to make a chipped tooth look whole again? For this smile flaw, there’s cosmetic bonding. And to transform an entire smile, consider porcelain veneers. Your cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles, Dr. Les Latner, offers all of these services. At this time, however, cosmetic dentistry is not generally covered by insurance. Rather, these are considered elective procedures that are an out-of-pocket expense. Nevertheless, Dr. Latner and his team know the value of an attractive smile. Therefore, we offer several ways to cover the cost of your cosmetic dentistry service. Make no mistake—anytime you put time and money into your smile, you are making a worthwhile investment that will pay you back in dividends of confidence and good looks!
