A radiant, confident smile is a universal symbol of health and happiness. It’s often one of the very first things people notice about you when you walk into a room. A beautiful smile is perfect for making a lasting impression and can impact everything from your personal to your professional relationships.

Thankfully, at Harmony Dental Group we’re passionate about helping you attain a smile you can be proud of. Whether you’re seeking teeth whitening, a straighter smile, or natural-looking veneers, we’re here to assist you every step of the way.

Be proud of your smile

Achieve Your Ideal Dream Smile

We are here to help you create your ideal, natural, and dream smile using the latest modern technologies and procedures.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic Dentistry goes beyond traditional restorative or therapeutic procedures like treating cavities or gum disease. It’s all about enhancing the natural beauty of your smile and creating harmony between your teeth and facial features. While general dentistry primarily focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating functional issues, cosmetic dentistry prioritizes the overall appearance of your teeth and gums. These aesthetic solutions can even enhance your personality, resulting in a boost of confidence and self-esteem.

Why Get a Smile Makeover?

Transforming your smile is a priceless experience that affects both your personal life and career. In fact, having a great smile could even make a difference in job interviews. Studies suggest that people with attractive teeth often stand out among other candidates, receiving better and higher salary offers. That’s because feeling good about your teeth can impact your confidence and how you interact with others. When you smile and laugh freely, it creates a positive vibe and leaves a great first impression. So taking care of your teeth is definitely worth it.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments Can:

  • Brighten stained or discolored teeth
  • Repair cracks or fractures
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Correct overcrowding
  • Reshape teeth
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Replace old metallic restorations, such as fillings and crowns

Cosmetic Dental Veneers

One of the key elements of complete smile makeovers is dental veneers. These thin, custom-made porcelain restorations are crafted from high-quality materials and designed to cover the front surface of your most noticeable teeth. Whether you have discolored, chipped, misaligned, or unevenly spaced teeth, veneers can transform your smile. At Harmony Dental Group, we take pride in our precise veneer application, ensuring that your smile not only looks natural but also maintains its functionality.

For better results, we recommend placing at least six veneers across your upper front teeth. This technique allows us to restore and recreate the overall appearance of your smile. Depending on how wide your smile looks, the number of veneers may differ. Our experienced dental team is here for you! We’ll gladly examine and figure out the perfect number of veneers that suit your unique needs and goals.

Teeth Whitening

Years of consuming coffee, tea, tomato sauce, red wine, or other stain-causing drinks can gradually dim the brilliance of your smile. If that is your case, we have good news. Harmony Dental Group provides safe and effective teeth whitening to restore the whiteness of your teeth and even take it to the next level. Our professional-grade treatments can lighten your teeth by several shades, leaving you with a youthful, radiant smile.

Professional teeth whitening is a great first step to any smile makeover. At Harmony Dental Group, you have the option to go over the procedure in the office or at home. For our patients who prefer to whiten on their own time, we provide them with custom take-home kits. Just be aware that in-office whitening usually takes one hour, while at-home whitening takes a couple of weeks.

Composite Bonding

Symmetry is key when it comes to beautiful teeth. But when just one or two teeth are misshaped or asymmetrical, you usually don’t need a full set of dental veneers. Instead, opting for modest composite bonding is an excellent choice. This technique can quickly cover minor imperfections like small chips, cracks, or mild gaps between teeth to make them look whole. This non-invasive procedure fixes and reshapes your teeth with a tooth-colored resin in a single appointment. 

Dental bonding can actually give you a smile that looks really natural and blends in perfectly with your other teeth. It can even change the shape of a tooth to make it longer, wider, or more even. Besides, you won’t have to worry about it too often since it usually lasts for about five to seven years before needing to be replaced. The best part is that it’s completely reversible and doesn’t require removing any of your natural tooth enamel.

Tooth and Gum Recontouring

A balanced smile isn’t just about teeth; it’s also about the harmony between your teeth and gum lines. Uneven gums or excessive gum tissue (aka a “gummy smile”) can affect the aesthetics of your smile. Luckily, at Dental Harmony Group, we have the solution for that. Tooth and gum recontouring involves gently reshaping the gums and smoothing out certain teeth to create a more harmonious and proportional smile. This procedure is minimally invasive and can lead to a dramatically improved appearance in as little as one appointment.

Cosmetic Restorations (Crowns and Fillings)

It’s always good when a dental treatment can improve both function and appearance. If you have these problems, dental crowns and fillings sound like a wonderful option. These treatments can improve the look of damaged teeth by restoring and shaping them and adding color. They also provide support and strength to the teeth, allowing for better functionality and bite alignment. This dual benefit makes them a popular choice among our patients. No matter what you need, our dentist in La Jolla is here to opt for a treatment that suits your main goals.

Who Should Undergo Cosmetic Dental Treatment?

The beauty of Cosmetic Dentistry is that it’s accessible to a wide range of individuals. Suppose you’re unhappy with any aspect of your smile. In that case, whether it’s the color, shape, alignment, or overall appearance of your teeth – you may be an excellent candidate for cosmetic dental treatment. During a consultation at Harmony Dental Group, our experienced La Jolla dentists will evaluate your oral health and determine the most suitable cosmetic procedures for your special needs.

Planning Your Smile Design

Achieving your dream smile begins with careful planning. Our team believes in a personalized approach tailored to the individual. During your initial consultation, we’ll take the time to understand your concerns and help you explore the different treatment options available to you. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each procedure so that you can make an informed decision. It’s important for you to be comfortable with your choices, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.
