What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry concerned with improving the aesthetics of your smile by restoring, repairing, and replacing teeth. We provide cosmetic dentistry procedures to correct any number of cosmetic dental imperfections and enhance the appearance of your teeth. In some cases, we can even combine several cosmetic treatments to create a smile you’ll love to show off.
Many patients choose cosmetic dentistry to fix a variety of dental imperfections, such as:
- Size and shape
- Color and brightness
- Space between teeth
- Bite alignment
- Broken, chipped, or decayed teeth
- Missing teeth
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Teeth Whitening – Want to brighten your teeth and boost your appearance? Teeth whitening at Mid-Valley Dental Care can brighten the shade of your teeth and gently rejuvenate your appearance in just one appointment. We’ll use our sensitive whitening gel along with a powerful LED to eliminate stubborn stains and discoloration. With professional teeth whitening, we can whiten your smile by up to eight shades in as little as an hour!
Learn more about LED-assisted teeth whitening during your consultation at our Northridge dental office.
Porcelain Veneers – Dr. Casey Lau, Dr. Kayla Lau, and Dr. Terence Lau use natural-looking porcelain veneers, whether you want to perfect minor dental imperfections and life-long orthodontic problems. Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that we place on the surface of your teeth to fix cosmetic imperfections.
We customize each veneer to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, so they’ll blend in seamlessly with your smile. Visit our Northridge office to learn more about the veneers process.
Lumineers® – Lumineers are an ultra-thin, minimally invasive alternative to porcelain veneers used to maintain your natural tooth structure and brighten your smile.
At Mid-Valley Dental Care, we’re proud to offer this advanced restorative method to protect your tooth structure while treating any cosmetic problems. Find out more about this procedure during your consultation with Dr. Casey, Kayla, or Terence Lau.
Dental Bonding – Repair and whiten your teeth using subtle dental bonding from Mid-Valley Dental Care. This quick and easy process restores your smile with a tooth-colored resin that we’ll customize to match your smile. We’ll just brush it on your teeth and let it harden into the perfect shape to ensure you’ll leave our office with a dazzling new smile.
Smile Makeovers – Drs. Casey, Kayla and Terence Lau can combine our cosmetic treatments to transform the appearance of your whole smile. Whether we’re straightening, repairing, whitening, or a combination of all three, we have the expertise to provide you with a complete smile makeover that restores your teeth for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions
The exact cost of your cosmetic dentistry service will depend on multiple factors. Factors that will influence the cost of your cosmetic procedure include the treatment you want, the extent of the problem you want to be solved, and your insurance coverage. During your initial consultation, your cosmetic dentist will be able to give you the estimated cost and payment options.
Most insurance companies won’t cover cosmetic dentistry services because they’re usually purely focused on aesthetics. However, your insurance provider may cover some or all of the costs if the procedure is deemed necessary. We encourage you to call your insurance provider beforehand and ask them which costs they’ll cover and under what circumstances.
If you need help covering the cost of your cosmetic dentistry treatment, don’t worry. Mid-Valley Dental Care is proud to offer flexible financing options, including third-party financing through CareCredit and LendingClub. We also extend special offers to patients who need financial help to enjoy a better smile.
While some cosmetic dentistry services only serve aesthetics, some are also restorative. For example, dental bonding can restore both the form and function of a damaged tooth by repairing damage, filling cavities, and hiding discoloration. Your cosmetic dentist will let you know about all of the benefits of your cosmetic dentistry procedure during your consultation.
Rest assured that your comfort and safety are our top priorities. A number of cosmetic dentistry services, such as teeth whitening and Lumineers, are usually completely painless. If you need dental bonding to repair a deep cavity, an anesthetic may be necessary. Your cosmetic dentist will use anesthetic as needed and we can even offer sedation dentistry to patients who need extra help relaxing.
