There are a variety of cosmetic dental procedures available, and the right procedure for you will depend on your specific needs and goals.
Teeth Whitening – A quick, easy way to brighten your smile
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. The process can be done quickly and easily in the comfort of your own home, followed by visits at BioSmile Dentistry dental office to remove further stains and discoloration from your teeth. Teeth whitening can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, and it is an affordable way to boost your self-confidence.
The results are usually long-lasting, but you may need to touch up your teeth every few years to keep them looking their best. Whether you choose to do it yourself or visit BioSmile Dentistry for professional teeth whitening in Santa Monica, the KÖR Teeth Whitening System is a quick, easy way to brighten your smile.
Dental Veneers – For repairing and reshaping teeth
Dental Veneers are a simple and long-lasting way to correct problems with your smile. A veneer is a small piece of material that is placed over a tooth, covering and hiding crooked, discolored, or cracked teeth. Typically made of porcelain, veneers are bonded to the tooth, making them a great long-term solution for aesthetically-unappealing teeth. Veneers can improve the color, shape, and size of your teeth, and can also close gaps between teeth. With proper oral hygiene, veneers can last for years!
The procedure for placing dental veneers is usually performed in two office visits. If you are considering this cosmetic dentistry procedure, be sure to consult with Dr Lorene! With her expertise and experience she can help you choose the right type of veneers for your needs.
Dental Tooth Bonding – To fix chips or cracks in teeth
Cosmetic dentistry procedures like tooth bonding can be used to fix chips or cracks in teeth, to improve the color and shape of your teeth; they can also be used to close gaps between teeth. Dental bonding is a procedure in which we apply a tooth-colored resin to your affected teeth and then harden it with a special light. The resin is matched to the color of your natural teeth so that it will be virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
Bonding can be used to repair minor cosmetic imperfections and is a much less invasive option than veneers or crowns. Dr Lorene specializes in biomimetic dentistry, which uses bonding for cosmetic purposes. Make sure to ask her what she can do for you to improve your smile with simple bondings!
Invisalign Clear Aligners – Invisible trays that can straighten teeth in as little as 12 weeks
Do you have crooked teeth but feel too self-conscious to wear braces? If so, then Invisalign could be the perfect solution for you. Invisalign aligners are the latest innovation in cosmetic dentistry. At BioSmile Dentistry, our Biomimetic Invisalign treatment approach has been clinically proven to be effective for teeth straightening in a wide range of cases, with up to 50% faster treatment times than traditional braces, which are made of metal and wires.
And best of all, Invisalign braces are made of clear BPA free plastic, which makes them virtually invisible and much more comfortable to wear; also they can straighten teeth in as little as 12 weeks. In addition, Invisalign trays can be removed for eating and brushing, making them much easier to care for than traditional braces. For people who want to improve their smile without enduring the pain and inconvenience of traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners are the perfect solution for adults and teenagers.
Dental Implants – The Natural and Aesthetic Solution
Dental implants aesthetic restorations come in a variety of forms, including fixed bridge and single tooth implant restorations, but all are useful in providing patients with a straight and beautiful-looking smile.

Dental Ceramic Crowns and Onlays – The Natural and Aesthetic Solution
Ceramic dental crowns are a custom-made, tooth-shaped cap applied to damaged, deteriorating or cracked teeth. The application of a crown helps prevent a tooth from becoming weaker, and it also has the benefit of improving a patient’s smile and function. Dr Lorene works hard to preserve natural tooth structure by restoring damaged cracked teeth with dental onlays when possible, which are a lot more conservative than crowns and very aesthetic. They are simply bonded to the teeth, strong and invisible!
Gum Contouring – To improve the appearance of gums
If your gums are asymmetrical, too high, or too low, gum contouring can help to create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing look. The procedure is relatively simple. Dr Lorene uses a laser and/or a scalpel to carefully remove excess gum tissue to then shape the remaining tissue in order to create a more desired look. The laser cuts away the soft tissue while cauterizing the wound.
In most cases, there is minimal pain and recovery is quick with occasional swelling after the procedure. The gums only need a few days to heal fully. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your gums, gum contouring may be right for you.
