Whoever said you never get a second chance to make a first impression obviously never had a smile makeover! A smile is usually the first thing someone notices about another person. It’s the universal sign of happiness, friendliness and approachability. A beautiful smile can help you feel much more confident and happy with your appearance. Whether one treatment — or a combination of several — would address the issues in your smile, our team is here to help.

Let’s look today at some of the cosmetic treatment options we offer in our Santa Cruz cosmetic dentist office.

What is a smile makeover?

We offer a smile makeover that is tailored specifically to you and your smile. We can focus on the teeth, the gums or a combination of both to give you a healthier, brighter, more polished smile. Since the makeovers are custom, plans will vary from patient to patient. You can choose just one service or a combination of several for your smile makeover. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular procedures that can be performed in our cosmetic dental office in Scotts Valley. 

Professional teeth whitening

Retail stores carry a vast array of products, including toothpaste and whitening strips, that claim to be able to whiten your teeth in a short period of time. The results, however, are temporary, lead to mixed results and can sometimes damage your gums. Professional teeth whitening is one of our most affordable and popular cosmetic procedures. It can drastically improve your smile in as little as one dental appointment, and the results last far longer than store-bought whitening products.


Sometimes teeth are resistant to whitening, or perhaps your teeth are crooked, uneven or have gaps in them. In any of these cases, you may benefit from dental veneers. Crafted from wafer-thin shells of porcelain that look and feel like real tooth enamel, veneers are permanently bonded to the front surface of your teeth and can quickly and easily repair imperfections. Veneers can be a bit expensive, so if you’re looking for a less expensive alternative with similar results, talk to our Los Gatos cosmetic dentist about dental bonding, which uses composite resin to repair flaws.

Dental crowns

If a tooth has more extensive damage than a veneer or bonding can cover, you may want to consider a dental crown. Dental crowns are designed to cover an entire tooth to the gum line and offer strength and stability to an otherwise damaged tooth.

Dental implants

If you have missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted, be sure to talk to our dental team about the revolutionary restorative procedure that is taking the dental world by storm. Dental implants are permanent replacements that look, feel and behave like natural teeth. If properly maintained — in a way that is no different than caring for natural teeth — dental implants can last a lifetime.


From veneers, crowns and professional whitening to implants and even orthodontics, our dental team at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry will work with you to formulate the smile of your dreams! Give us a call at (831) 824-5111 to schedule a consultation today!
