What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialty that’s dedicated to improving the appearance of your smile. While general dentistry is geared towards keeping your mouth healthy, cosmetic dentistry is focused on making it beautiful.

Why should I get cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Your smile is a reflection of your personality and a personal calling card for communicating with the world. Cosmetic imperfections in your smile can leave you feeling insecure and self-conscious when interacting with others. Cosmetic dentistry can fix your insecurities. By improving the look of your smile, cosmetic dentistry boosts your confidence, increases your self-esteem, and makes you proud to share your smile with the world.

What cosmetic services do you offer?

Viva Smile offers a wide range of cosmetic services, including:

Teeth whitening

White and lustrous teeth are the hallmark of a beautiful smile. Viva Smile offers both in-office whitening with Phillips Zoom!® and at-home bleaching trays, so you can brighten your smile in whichever way is most convenient for your schedule. Do you love to start your morning with a steaming cup of coffee? Is red wine your go-to dinner beverage? These are just two reasons why your smile may not shine as brightly as it once did. In fact, discoloration is something that is pretty difficult to avoid. We all love to admire the sparkling smiles of Hollywood stars, but when it comes to our own smile, we may not meet the same standard of beauty. If you want to, you can! A radiant smile is not hard to come by. In fact, you can have that gorgeous smile in less than an hour if you so choose.

Dental implants

If missing teeth have left unsightly holes in your smile, Viva Smile can fill them in with high-quality dental implants.

Implants are artificial tooth roots that, when used in conjunction with a restoration like a crown, bridge, or dentures, fill in the holes in your smile with a tooth replacement that looks and feels just like the real thing.


Dental bonding is a quick, easy, and minimally invasive procedure that can instantly repair minor cosmetic imperfections like cracks or chips in your teeth.

Your Viva Smile dentist treats your tooth damage with a bonding material that looks exactly like your natural enamel, giving you a smile that looks more beautiful.

Small cosmetic problems can have a big impact on your smile, and when they do, your confidence may suffer. The team at Viva Smile in Granada Hills can help you regain the appearance you deserve, and your full sense of satisfaction with your smile. Just give us a call to talk about dental bonding.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently sealed to the front side of your teeth covering up any cosmetic imperfections and completely makeover your smile. The porcelain that Viva Smile uses for your veneers has the same color and translucency as your tooth enamel, so your new smile will look as attractive as it does natural. Dental veneers, sometimes referred to as porcelain veneers, are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to teeth and used to improve the condition of your teeth for a natural-looking feel and appearance. They are custom-made by your dentist in order to match neighboring teeth which makes them virtually undetectable so that no one will even know you have them!

Inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays are also known as partial crowns. They are most commonly used to strengthen a damaged tooth, whether it be from decay or trauma. Inlays are used by our dentists in Granada Hills to repair the inside of the tooth and onlays are used to repair the outside of the tooth. Just like many other cosmetic procedures, inlays and onlays are undetectable because they used tooth-colored material.
