Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz, CA
Cosmetic dentistry is a specialization of dental science that focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth and mouth. Thanks to advances in technology that make cosmetic procedures more convenient and comfortable, cosmetic dentistry has become one of the most sought-after niches in dentistry, as achieving a beautiful smile worthy of Hollywood is more attainable than ever.
Let’s take a deeper look at how Dr. Ariana Ebrahimian and Dr. Max Ebrahimian use state-of-the-art techniques and tools to help the patients of Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry obtain flawless-looking smiles in Scotts Valley
- Teeth whitening represents the most popular treatment in all of cosmetic dentistry. Changing the shade of your teeth can make a significant difference in the appearance of your smile. The popularity of whitening procedures is evident in the wealth of store-bought whitening kits that are available. For optimum results and the continued safety of your teeth, however, it is a better choice to have the procedure done by an experienced cosmetic dentist like the ones on staff at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry. Our professional whitening treatments are clinically approved and, because they use a higher concentration of the whitening agents found in store-bought kids, produce teeth that stay brighter for longer periods of time—and without the enhanced sensitivity that is a common side effect from many over-the-counter whitening products.
- Veneers are thin shells placed over the front portion of teeth that simultaneously can correct several aesthetic flaws, such as slight crookedness, chips, cracks, concealing an unwanted gap between teeth or correcting discoloration that does not respond well to a whitening procedure. At Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry, our Los Gatos cosmetic dentists use two types of veneers: porcelain and composite. Our composite veneers are handcrafted in our office, while we work with a top-of-the-line dental laboratory to craft our porcelain veneers.
- Gum Recontouring is performed using a state-of-the-art dental laser, to even out the gum line for patients whose gums rest too high on their teeth, resulting in the appearance of a gummy smile. Laser technology makes this procedure much more convenient for our patients, allowing us to complete a gum recontouring with less pain, in less time, with minimal bleeding, and shorter recovery time as compared to performing the recontouring through traditional gum surgery.
- Fillings are used to repair small areas of decay, usually caused by having a cavity. At Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry, our Santa Cruz cosmetic dentists believe in maintaining a metal-free practice. We offer composite fillings that are made of durable resin and look almost indistinguishable in your mouth, as the color of the fillings can be matched to look like your other natural, healthy teeth.
- Inlay/onlays are used to repair intermediate areas of damage, which are too big for a composite filling but not large enough to require installing a crown, which would entail replacing the entire exterior of the tooth. Inlays repair the chewing surface of a tooth, or, the area between the cusps. Onlays are used to repair more extensive areas of damage.

Dr. Ariana Ebrahimian and Dr. Max Ebrahimian believe in using the latest advances in dental procedures and technology, combined with the finest materials, to yield fabulous-looking results. One of those materials is dental porcelain. Used in many of our cosmetic and restorative procedures, dental porcelain is a beautiful and stain-resistant material that can be matched to the color of your other teeth and also reflects light in a similar manner to natural tooth enamel.
