Should I Get Cosmetic Dentistry?
You might think cosmetic dentistry is only for models and celebrities, but your smile is a valuable part of your self-confidence and your interaction with others. We provide various levels of cosmetic dentistry to help patients just like you achieve a smile they can be proud to wear.
If you’re unsure whether cosmetic dentistry is right for you, consider these five questions:
- Am I happy with the way my smile looks?
- What do people think when they see my smile?
- Do I avoid laughing or smiling in public?
- If I could change one thing about my smile, what would I choose?
- How would a more appealing smile change my daily life?
Cosmetic Services We Provide
Dr. Roth and his team offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental options to help you enhance your smile the way you want.
At our office, we provide:
Laguna Hills Teeth Whitening for a Vibrant Smile
Our teeth naturally become dirty and dingy with use, especially when exposed to staining foods and drinks. If you feel embarrassed by the color of your teeth, a simple teeth whitening treatment could make a world of difference for your smile and your confidence.
Our office provides Phillips Zoom®, a powerful teeth whitening option that lifts stains and restores your enamel to its natural shade. Using a professional-strength bleaching gel, we can comfortably and conveniently help you eliminate years of staining, potentially whitening teeth by as much as eight shades!
Which Type of Whitening is Right for Me?
We provide both in-house and take-home whitening options to help you whiten your teeth in the way that best fits your individual needs. To decide on the best method for you, it’s important to consider why you want to whiten your teeth and what method best fits your needs and lifestyle.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Are you planning to whiten your teeth for an important event, such as a wedding, party, or job interview? Then consider in-office whitening!
All it takes is a one-hour session to lift years of stains from your teeth. Your whitening will be applied and monitored by our professional team, ensuring even results across your smile and minimizing tooth sensitivity. We’ll compare your teeth to a color chart before and after treatment so you can easily see the difference. Once your whitening session is complete, you can walk out with a new, dazzling smile.
Free Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits Available For All Patients!
Now any patient who visits our office for treatment can enjoy a bright and beautiful smile!
We provide customized teeth whitening kits that include professional-strength gel and whitening trays designed to fit your unique smile. With these kits, you can whiten your teeth whenever and wherever you’re most comfortable.
Best of all, you don’t have to be one of our in-office teeth whitening patients to enjoy this offer! We value every patient’s smile, and we offer these whitening kits whether you’re a cosmetic patient or you simply come to see us for routine exams and cleanings.

Porcelain Veneers Transform Your Smile
Tired of dental damage, tooth gaps, or stained enamel that just won’t whiten? Veneers may be the cosmetic solution you’re looking for.
Each veneer is a ceramic shell bonded to the front surface of the tooth, custom-designed to look natural and flattering within your smile. Veneers conceal a variety of cosmetic issues, such as chips, gaps, cracks, wear, misshapen teeth, and deep discoloration. Veneers can even be used to hide minor misalignments.
Dr. Roth is well known in Laguna Hills and throughout Orange County for his high-quality dental work, including porcelain veneers for cosmetic and restorative treatments. With his expertise, he can quickly advise you on which type of veneer will work best and provide long lasting, beautiful results. We can also combine veneers with other procedures and sophisticated technology for a full mouth rehabilitation. The goal is your optimal oral health and a more appealing smile.
Cosmetic Enhancement with CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
Crowns are ceramic caps that fit over a tooth, protecting it from weakness, damage, and decay. Whether you need a crown for your health or aesthetics, we can make the process quick and simple with our CEREC Same-Day Crowns.
Using state-of-the-art technology, we can create a digital impression of your tooth, which goes directly to our CEREC machine. This machine then fabricates the custom crown out of a block of high-quality ceramic, specially chosen to match the shade of your teeth.
The milling process is done right in our office, and within a couple of hours, your new crown is complete and ready for placement. Dr. Roth expertly places, adjusts, and bonds the crown. When he’s finished, you can walk out with your new crown in place the same day.
What Are Inlays and Onlays?
These customized restorations provide a convenient option that falls between a filling and a crown. Inlays are used to restore the tooth’s biting surface between the cusps (corners), while onlays can include one or more corners as well. Like crowns, these prosthetics are expertly crafted from a digital impression, then bonded to the tooth. However, they take up much less surface space than crowns and don’t require much alteration of your tooth, preserving more of your natural enamel.

Preparation: Minimal preparation of the front surface
Best for: Concealing cosmetic issues and minor damage
Purpose: Aesthetic & restorative
Covers: The entire tooth above the gum line

Preparation: Conservative reshaping of the tooth’s chewing surface

The Benefits of Amalgam-Free Restorations
Beyond their cosmetic appeal, today’s composite and ceramic restorations offer numerous benefits for your smile.
- Look Natural – Non-metal restorations can be colored and shaped to match the surrounding enamel so they won’t stand out in your smile.
- Preserve Your Teeth – Composite restorations can fit into smaller spaces and bond to the enamel, so less preparation is needed for placement.
- Heavy Metal-Free – While amalgam restorations contain traces of mercury, composite and ceramic restorations contain no metal and are considered biosafe.
Can Invisalign Fix My Crooked Teeth?
You’ve likely been unhappy with your crooked, crowded, or uneven teeth for quite a while, but aren’t sure if braces are the right call for you. Fortunately, Invisalign clear braces provide a discreet, comfortable alternative.
Our practice offers Invisalign treatment to teens and adults with mild to moderate dental misalignment. This innovative treatment uses a series of custom trays to guide teeth into a healthier position using gentle pressure at specific targeted points. You’ll wear each set for two weeks before switching to the next, each one gradually moving your teeth closer to their goal.
Who Can Wear Invisalign?
Our office provides Invisalign braces to teens and adults with mild to moderate cases of crowding, spacing, or misalignment. Since the aligners are removable, it’s important to be diligent about keeping them on for the full 22 hours a day (apart from eating and brushing) to ensure that the treatment is effective.
Do You Have to Wear a Retainer After Invisalign?
Yes, retainers are part of the process. They help keep your teeth from moving back into place after treatment. Our office provides a variety of retainers, including standard removable retainers and lingual retainers for those who want a fixed option. We also provide night guard retainers for patients with a habit of grinding their teeth at night.
How Your Gums Impact Your Smile Aesthetic
Most cosmetic dental options focus on teeth, but your gums are an integral part of your smile’s appearance and health. Any cosmetic treatment you receive needs healthy gums as a foundation to last. That’s why we prioritize your oral health first and provide cosmetic treatment only after your teeth and gums are healthy.
Improving Your Gums with Dental Laser Treatment
At our practice, our talented periodontist specializes in caring for your gums. She uses a dental laser both to improve your gum health and to enhance your aesthetic appeal. Our laser gum treatments include:
Laser Scaling and Root Planing
If you suffer from gum disease, lasers can provide quick and effective treatment. Dental lasers can eliminate bacteria in pockets under the gums, and they’re much gentler and more comfortable than more traditional tools.
Laser Gum Contouring
If you have an uneven gum line or a “gummy smile,” dental lasers can reshape your gum tissue, revealing more of your teeth and boosting your smile’s appeal. Using lasers makes this treatment simple and non-invasive, shortens recovery time, and is gentle enough that you may not even need anesthetics!
Is a Smile Makeover Right for Me?
If you’re looking for a smile transformation that a single cosmetic dental treatment won’t fix, a smile makeover is the next step. Each smile makeover is customized to the needs of the individual, combining two or more treatments to achieve the desired result.
First, Dr. Roth discusses your smile goals to understand what you want to achieve. After examining your smile, he’ll work with you to evaluate your options and determine which combination of treatments will give you the results you're looking for.
