Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic dentistry option if you’re looking for a long-term solution. Veneers provide a long-lasting yet straightforward way to correct issues with your smile. A dental veneer is a small piece of material that the cosmetic dentist places of your tooth. Veneers can cover crooked, discolored, or cracked teeth. Your cosmetic dentist can make dental veneers from either porcelain or composite resin material. Your cosmetic dentist can help you choose which material is right for you. Each type of veneer comes with its benefits. Porcelain veneers are durable and long-lasting and have a natural-looking surface.

Additionally, with porcelain veneers, your dentist doesn’t need to remove as much tooth enamel. Also, porcelain veneers don’t stain easily. Composite resin veneers cost less, usually require fewer visits to the dentist, and are easy to fix if damaged. Your dentist can help you determine which material is right for you.


A crown is essentially a cover, or cap that your dentist places over a tooth. Crowns are similar to veneers but, in addition to correcting aesthetic problems, they are useful in fixing functional issues. If your teeth are damaged or deteriorating, crowns can be a good option. Crowns can restore the tooth to its standard shape, size, and function. The application of a crown helps prevent a tooth from becoming weaker. A crown also has the added benefit of improving a patient’s smile. Some of the reasons for why you may need a crown include:

–    You have a cavity that is too large for a filling

–    Your tooth is cracked, worn down, or weakened

–    You went through a root canal treatment – the crown can protect your restored tooth

–    There are discolored or poorly shaped teeth you want to cover


If you have crooked teeth, but don’t want to get traditional braces, Invisalign may be for you. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that physically move teeth into place. The Invisalign treatment is similar to braces; however, your trays are practically invisible. Your Invisalign aligners will be custom-made to fit your mouth. Your dentist will ensure that you don’t experience any excessive discomfort. The length of time you will need to wear the Invisalign aligners depends on the extent of your misalignment. However, the result is a smile you’ll be proud to show off. Patients often wonder how long Invisalign takes to straighten teeth. Typically, a course of treatment with Invisalign will take 12 months for most adults. However, the actual treatment time will vary from patient to patient. Most patients start seeing a difference in within two to three months after starting to use the aligners.


Dr. Kanani’s dental implants method is one of his top forms of cosmetic dentistry treatment. Dental implants are a great way to fix:

–    Individual missing teeth and rows of teeth

–    Teeth that have deep stains or discoloration

–    Decayed teeth that you can’t fix with a root canal

–    Persistent problems with denture devices

To treat patients with missing teeth, Dr. Kanani has come up with a minimally invasive dental implants procedure. Known as the painless, flap-less, drill-less bone expansion method, Dr. Kanani can perform dental implants without drilling. Utilizing individual dental devices, Dr. Kanani can enter a patient’s mouth to expand the bone and make room for the implant. Dr. Kanani’s procedure is less painful and more cost-effective than traditional dental implant procedures. The trusted Tarzana dentist’s dental implant procedure is painless that patients also say they’d have implants before a root canal.


Another quick way to improve your smile is through teeth whitening. Dr. Kanani utilizes the Zoom! Teeth Whitening technique, which can take place in his office in less than an hour. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in the United States. At Around the Corner Dental Spa, Dr. Kanani provides patients with the most technologically advanced teeth whitening process. There are a variety of cosmetic teeth whitening options, but at Dr. Kanani’s office, we use Zoom! Teeth Whitening. When you visit Dr. Kanani’s office for Zoom Teeth Whitening, you can ensure eight shades or more will whiten your smile. Teeth whitening is the most dependable way to improve the appearance of your smile without undergoing major dental work. If you practice good oral hygiene after your procedure, your results can last for one full year or longer.


Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite material to your tooth. The dentist then sculpts the bonding into shape, hardens it, and polishes it. Dental bonding is ideal for small cosmetic dentistry work. Bonds can fix a broken or chipped tooth or closing small gaps between teeth. Overall, bonding is a relatively inexpensive way to make minor dental changes. The pros of dental bonds are:

–    It costs less

–    The treatment takes much less time and can take place in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth

–    It’s a more natural process and doesn’t require anesthesia
