Best Oxnard Cosmetic Dentists Helping Make Beautiful Smiles For Over 45 Years
If you need teeth whitened, straightened or are in need of a full mouth restoration, the cosmetic dentists of Carson & Carson DDS. take great pride in using only the finest dental materials to help restore a patients smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services We Offer:
Veneers – A veneer is a prosthetic device, usually made of porcelain, that covers the front surface of a tooth (or multiple teeth), blocking cracks or discolorations and help close gaps between teeth. To prepare a tooth for the veneer, we remove a small part of the enamel of the tooth and create an impression, which we use to create the veneer. We will then place the veneer over the tooth, trim the veneer to so that it is a perfect fit and then seal the veneer over the tooth. Once done, you will be left with a stain resistant veneer that gives off a natural appearance.
Teeth Whitening – Teeth can become discolored over time through many activities like consuming coffee or colas, smoking, recent dental surgery, or natural as we age. If you want to bring back a whiter smile, the teeth whitening procedure offered at Carson & Carson is a long lasting, painless process. The procedure is straightforward and can be done in only one office visit. We apply a shield that guards your gums and then apply a whitening gel in and around the teeth, followed by a bleaching agent that whitens the teeth. Based on the severity and cause of the stain, the types of bleaching used may change. We adapt our process to get the best results.
Teeth Straightening – If you have teeth that are overcrowded, or misaligned, teeth straightening helps correct these issues and gives you a straight smile. There are multiple options for teeth straightening, including braces or invisalign. These are special devices tailored specifically to your mouth and improve tooth alignment over time. To get an idea of the right straightening solution for your situation, please contact the Oxnard dentists of Carson & Carson and request an appointment.
Full Mouth Restoration – A full mouth restoration is often a combination of dental and orthopedic procedures, of which cosmetic dentistry is one step. This can include veneers, whitening, gun re-contouring, along with oral surgeries like root canals, dental implants and other restorative dental treatments. If you are in need of a full mouth restoration, you need a dentist that you can trust will be honest and fair with you.

Before/After Results from Past Patients
Anterior bridge content pending..
Full all porcelin case content pending.
Our patient was unhappy with his smile due to deep decay and several fractured teeth. We ended up using all porcelain metal free pressed crowns to acheive a natural shape, smile line, lighter color and gingival health. These photos were taken the same cemetation day and we have maintained excellent gingival health, which is just as imporatant as cosmetic design.
Inlays are half way between a crown and a direct filling material in cost and durability. They are good if you want to be conservative and preserve tooth structure.
Porcelain veneers is a more conservative way to cosmetically improve the appearance of the front teeth. Only the two front teeth here were done.
This porcelain veneer replaced a plastic filling on this patients canine.
Porcelain veneers were placed on all of his front teeth fifteen years ago. Recently he returned and I snapped a picture of his case as it appears now. See next picture series below.
By the gray hair and beard you can tell a number of years has transpired from the picture above. As you can see his veneer looks as good as the day I put them in. He comes from Florida to see me.
Porcelain enabled me to change her basic shade to where it took ten years off her oral appearance. It gave her a very bright and cheerful smile.
The Porcelain veneers are undetectable on this young girl. The photo of the mom and daughter was the last time I saw them, about ten years ago. This family was a military family, so two years was the longest I was able to treat them. This case made me feel extremely good upon completion..
Porcelain really changed this lady’s appearance. The veneers covered her four front teeth.
Porcelain veneers were used here to eliminate the gaps between this patient’s teeth.
Porcelain fused to metal crowns i.e. PFMs are an alternative to veneers or pure porcelain jackets. This lady had one PFM done, and came back many years later for the second one. As you can see, porcelain never wears out or stains, but teeth do wear out and stain. This patient could only afford to do one tooth at a time. She still sees me after twenty eight years later.
Crowns were placed on these two molars after root canals and post were done. The porcelain was so life like that you would never know to look at them.
This lady had four porcelain fused to metal crowns replacing her crowns that were done in Mexico. Most people do not like the heart shaped crowns on their teeth, as they look very unattractive.
I repaired this persons bridge with a telescoped PFM, a crown on a crown. It saved a very expensive bridge.
This case is another repair on a bridge. You can see the metal base, over the crowns, I placed two telescoped crowns. It looks as good as new.
Aesthetic dentistry is where one uses tooth colored materials. In the front teeth, one always uses aesthetic techniques, but in the back not everyone wants to spend the extra money for the more cosmetically attractive restorations. When there is a family of five children, and they all needs fillings, I always allow the parents the option to chose between silver fillings or tooth colored composite resin fillings.
