And as your trusted dental team, we want your teeth to be as attractive as they are healthy. That’s why we’re proud to offer excellence in cosmetic dentistry, too. No, it’s not something just for celebrities, or the fabulously wealthy -- in fact, we’re pretty sure there’s a cosmetic treatment that’s fit just for you.
Enhancing Smiles with Cosmetic Dentistry
At Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer the following services in cosmetic dentistry for our neighbors in and near Newbury Park, CA.
It’s one of the most common procedures in dentistry, and there’s really no wondering why. Teeth whitening is a quick, affordable treatment that produces truly dramatic results. For teeth that have become dingy or discolored with age, professional teeth whitening is a conservative yet effective way to regain your youthful appearance.
Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics is happy to provide patients with two options in teeth whitening. There’s in-office Zoom! Whitening, which brightens teeth up to 10 shades in just one, one hour visit. Or, for patients who wish to brighten at their own speed, we offer professional at-home whitening kits. Whatever you choose, we know you’ll be astounded at the amazing results that can be achieved with teeth whitening.
They’re little coverings that completely hide your smile imperfections -- and porcelain veneers can totally transform even the most damaged teeth. Made of ultra-thin porcelain, dental veneers are bonded securely on top of chipped, cracked, misaligned, stained or otherwise imperfect front teeth, to instantly restore or enhance their overall appearance. What’s even better is the fact that porcelain never, ever stains -- so you could think of them as permanent teeth whiteners, too.
A more conservative alternative to porcelain veneers, one-appointment cosmetic bonding restores the appearance of damaged front teeth using a tooth-colored composite resin. Dr. Chaffee applies the material directly to the tooth’s surface, and then hardens it with a special UV light. To finish, he sculpts and polishes the resin to ensure it blends beautifully with the rest of your teeth -- and the result? A flawless smile, completed in just one visit to Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics.

When you feel ready to get started, do not hesitate to give our office a call!
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Appropriate for Children?
Many parents want to know if their son or daughter could benefit from cosmetic dentistry – and the answer is often yes! For example, countless teenagers and young adults straighten their teeth each year with Invisalign clear braces. Direct bonding and professional teeth whitening are also suitable cosmetic procedures for teenagers. In certain cases, younger children can also receive direct bonding to repair a chipped tooth.
If you are interested in exploring cosmetic dentistry options for your son or daughter, schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Chaffee today.
How Long Until I See Results?
Cosmetic dentistry can often deliver fast results for an improved smile, but the exact length of treatment varies from patient to patient depending on their unique smile goals and which procedure is chosen.
For example, cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening or direct bonding can typically be completed in just a single visit to our office. Remaking your smile with dental veneers, meanwhile, usually involves at least two appointments over the course of a couple weeks.
At Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Chaffee creates personalized treatment plans for every patient during the initial consultation and will gladly explain in greater detail when you can expect to start showing off your new and improved smile.
Will My Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
While every dental insurance plan is different, most do not cover cosmetic procedures. However, there are important exceptions. If a cosmetic treatment is deemed necessary to restore or improve your oral health, your insurance provider is much more likely to provide at least partial coverage. All-porcelain crowns, for example, often fall in both the cosmetic and restorative categories.
Our friendly and experienced team at Paraiso Family Dental and Orthodontics will gladly file an insurance claim on your behalf to help ensure you receive the maximum benefits available. If you do not have dental insurance, you can still achieve the beautiful smile of your dreams at our office! We are proud to partner with CareCredit, a third-party financing organization that provides uninsured patients with low and no-interest loans for dental treatment.
Are You a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks and are in generally good oral health, you are likely an excellent candidate for cosmetic dentistry! While gum disease or another oral health issues would not necessarily disqualify you from cosmetic dental treatment, Dr. Chaffee would first need to treat the underlying problem before moving ahead with veneers, bonding or another cosmetic procedure.
