Our approach to creating your beautiful, new smile

Dr. Conkle and Dr. Garcia set themselves apart as cosmetic dentists because of their extensive advanced training as well as their decades of experience. They are extremely precise in their work and will take care that every detail of your treatment is just right.

These are the general steps involved in a cosmetic procedure with one of our doctors:

Initial consultation

Cosmetic Dentistry in Laguna HillsTreatment begins with a comprehensive cosmetic consultation. During this meeting, the doctor listens closely to your needs and goals and recommends a treatment plan that will give you the smile that you want.

Diagnostic X-rays, intraoral camera images and external photographs will be taken as needed to be used in the planning of your smile makeover.

Impressions and study model

Next, the doctor will take an impression of your teeth and make a study model to use in planning your procedure. He will also create a “wax-up,” a wax model of the mouth used to show what the final results will look like. The doctor can make changes to the wax-up until you are completely happy with it.


You will be fitted with a natural-looking temporary until your final restoration is back from the lab.


In two weeks or less, we will have your permanent restoration back from the lab, and  you will come to the office for your final placement to complete your procedure.

  • CrownsCosmetic Dentistry in Laguna Hills

Conditions we can fix with Cosmetic Dentistry

  • Yellow, stained or discolored teeth – We offer three professional-strength whitening options that will get deep inside your teeth to quickly make them several shades lighter, including one in-house procedure and two take-home options. Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are more permanent whitening solutions.
  • Gaps between teeth – For gaps we can use orthodontics such as Invisalign clear aligners, or for a faster fix, we use porcelain veneers or crowns.
  • Gummy smiles or uneven gum line – Our soft-tissue lasers can comfortably remove excess gum and even out your gum line.
  • Crooked teeth – We offer all types of orthodontics for straightening teeth, including Invisalign and other methods that are virtually invisible. Mild cases can be quickly straightened with porcelain veneers.
  • Chips or rough spots – Imperfections such as chips and rough spots can be smoothed over with dental bonding, or porcelain veneers can be used for superior, longer-lasting results.
  • Missing teeth – Dental implants are the best option for a natural look and feel, and a lifetime of service. We also offer top-of-the-line dentures.
  • Old silver fillings – Old silver amalgam fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored fillings or crowns.
  • Mismatched or misshapen teeth – Veneers or crowns can correct irregularly shaped teeth.
