Video: Customized Smile Design
At the Scripps Center for Dental Care in La Jolla, we create what we call a Smile Design, a custom-designed smile, which can transform any of our San Diego patients’ smile. During your visit for a smile design, cosmetic dentist Dr. Weston will mock up a new smile in your mouth which will allow you to view the proposed changes before treatment begins.

Current trends in dentistry reflect our patients’ desire for long-lasting treatments that also look great. At Scripps Center for Dental Care, our cosmetic dentistry specialists in San Diego recognize that all forms of dental care are directly related to appearance, and we strive to help our patients achieve the very best in function and aesthetics when it comes to their smiles. Research shows that people with healthy smiles are more likely to be hired for jobs, be respected for their opinions, and have higher levels of self-confidence. As materials, techniques, and technology improve, we are increasingly able to provide subtle yet effective treatments that look beautiful and blend perfectly with natural teeth. Plus, with a number of anesthesia and sedation options available at our La Jolla cosmetic dentistry practice, it is more comfortable than ever to undergo aesthetic procedures.
Teeth Whitening – BriteSmile®
With BriteSmile® teeth whitening system, we are able to whiten and brighten our patients’ smiles in a single session that lasts only about 90 minutes, diminishing the appearance of even deep, stubborn stains. Many of our patients who undergo teeth whitening find that their teeth become dramatically whiter—up to nine shades—in one easy visit! With proper maintenance, the results of teeth whitening can last for years, and treatments can be repeated as necessary.
Direct Freehand Bonding
At Scripps Center for Dental Care, our cosmetic dentistry specialists are proud to offer patients of our La Jolla practice the unique service of freehand bonding as a treatment option. Bonding is a process involving the use of composite resin filling materials to hand sculpt tooth colored material chairside to improve the color and shape and treat rotations and fractures of the front teeth. This process can normally be performed in one visit without the use of a dental laboratory or temporary restorations. This provides an economical option for transitional or permanent smile re-design and is perfect for young patients.
At our cosmetic dentistry practice in La Jolla, porcelain veneers are the centerpiece of many of our most transformative smile design treatment plans. Porcelain veneers are durable, natural-looking tooth-shaped coverings customized to complement the size, shape, color, and texture of surrounding teeth. They can be placed to conceal a variety of aesthetic flaws, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and small gaps between teeth.
At Scripps Center for Dental Care, our certified cosmetic dentistry specialists provide only the most modern and aesthetically pleasing treatments to our patients. This commitment is the reason why we only place composite (tooth-colored) fillings in the back teeth and have totally eliminated metal, amalgam fillings from our practice.
