Cosmetic Dentistry

Wouldn't it be wonderful to wake up every day and see a shining, perfectly aligned set of teeth smiling back at you from the mirror? No matter what the current appearance of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry solutions such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening can help. Serving Ventura, Oxnard, and the surrounding communities of Camarillo and Santa Paula, Dr. Allen Levesque works individually with each patient to realize their dental dreams.

Porcelain Veneers

An excellent alternative to crowns, porcelain veneers can help to improve the smiles of our Ventura-area patients by hiding chips and stains, correcting misalignment, and increasing uniformity among teeth. Made of thin sheets of material that are carefully customized to each patient, porcelain veneers slide over the tooth and result in a very natural appearance. 

With proper care, porcelain veneers are durable and will last for many years. If you would like to learn more about porcelain veneers and live in the Oxnard or Ventura areas, please contact our cosmetic dentistry practice today to schedule a consultation.

Teeth Whitening

In the course of their everyday activities, most people regularly expose their teeth to a combination of coffee, tea, soft drinks, tobacco, and more. These substances can, over time, leave stains on teeth that are not easily removed with normal brushing and dental cleanings. Dr. Levesque offers teeth whitening to his Ventura and Oxnard patients as a way to return teeth to their brilliant white hue. 
Both in-office and take-home versions of the teeth whitening procedure are available at Dr. Levesque's Ventura office. Each has its own benefits: in-office teeth whitening is completed in about an hour for busy patients or those who desire whiter teeth in time for a special event; take-home teeth whitening kits are perfect for patients who are not good candidates for in-office whitening and would prefer to manage their treatment on their own time. 

No matter which type of teeth whitening you choose, Oxnard-area dentist Allen Levesque will make sure that your teeth are made as white as possible. He will provide you with maintenance instructions, so that you can have a gleaming, bright smile for years to come!

Dental Crowns (Caps)

Crowns, also known as caps, are a durable way to cover and protect a tooth that has been cracked or damaged, or a tooth that is badly discolored and unable to be treated with conventional teeth whitening techniques. Crowns are designed to fit snugly over the existing tooth and to closely match the size, color, and texture of the surrounding teeth for a natural look. 

In order to give his patients a range of dental treatment options, Dr. Levesque offers different kinds of crowns. While crowns have successfully been made for decades from porcelain fused to metal, our practice also offers all-ceramic crowns; many of our patients prefer the aesthetic appeal of this alternative. 

In addition to improving the cosmetic appearance of your smile, a crown makes the tooth beneath it more resistant to both injury and disease. To find out if you would benefit from receiving one or more crowns, contact The Smile Shapers today.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is another option for cosmetically repairing chipped or misaligned teeth. Click here for more information on dental bonding.

Tooth-colored Fillings

Cavities and other dental problems have long been treated with metal fillings; in some cases, these fillings are distinct enough to detract from what is otherwise an ideal appearance. 

Dr. Levesque is pleased to offer tooth-colored fillings to his patients. Not only are they more attractive than their metal counterparts, tooth-colored fillings are made from porcelain or resin, each of which are stronger and more durable than metal. They are also easy to apply, meaning that you will spend a minimum amount of time in the chair, and a maximum amount of time enjoying your healthy, cavity-free smile!

Metal-free Bridges and Partial Dentures

Recent advances in dental appliances mean that dentists can now offer cosmetically attractive alternatives to traditional bridges and dentures. These metal-free options are every bit as durable as their older counterparts; in some cases, the space-age materials used are even stronger. 

Metal-free dentures and bridges are carefully tinted to match the color of your surrounding teeth, for a smile that is naturally dazzling! If Dr. Levesque is correcting several dental concerns at once, you may choose to have porcelain veneers or teeth whitening applied at the same time as your metal-free bridge or denture.
