Cosmetic Dentistry in Carson, CA
Your smile is an essential part of your everyday life. From greeting your neighbors to sharing a laugh with friends, smiling with confidence gives others a great impression of you. That’s why Dr. Aluning and her dental team work hard to provide reliable cosmetic dentistry services at our Carson dental office.
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that aims to improve the appearance of patients’ teeth. Many cosmetic dentistry treatments can also support your natural tooth structures and resist decay.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Many luxurious treats come with unfortunate downsides for our teeth. Food and beverages like chocolate, wine, berries, and coffee all leave deep stains that hide beneath your enamel, the hard outer layer of your tooth. However, store-bought whitening strips usually don’t have the whitening power to reach these stains.
Fortunately, you can penetrate your enamel and release the discoloration using professional teeth whitening at Carson Dental Care. This advanced, LED-assisted procedure takes just one appointment to gently brighten your teeth by several shades. You’ll leave our office after your hour-long appointment with lasting results that you’ll be proud to share with friends.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Even minor cosmetic flaws can change how your whole smile looks. Thankfully, Dr. Aluning offers cosmetic dental bonding, a customizable, non-invasive procedure. This treatment allows you to improve the length, color, and size of your teeth in as little as one appointment.
Dental bonding is an ideal procedure because it can transform your smile fast. From filling in the gaps between your teeth to restoring a chipped tooth, our customizable liquid solution hardens into a durable, natural-looking surface.
Dental crowns are restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments that cover and replace damaged teeth, protecting your hard enamel from future decay.
Dr. Aluning uses these tooth caps with patients who need to support a dental bridge, top a dental implant, or restore a tooth after a root canal. We’ll even design your crowns to blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
Dental bridges are an ideal solution for restoring a row of up to four missing teeth. They use the surrounding teeth to stabilize a “bridge” that holds your custom dental crowns in place. We recommend these long-trusted restorations because they’re an affordable solution for restoring beauty and function to your teeth.
Missing teeth don’t just change your confidence — they also have an impact on your facial structure, appearance, and active lifestyle. Fortunately, Dr. Aluning offers a revolutionary solution for permanently restoring your smile: dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium rods that our dentist places directly into your jawbone. This placement triggers a process called osseointegration, where your bone fuses with the titanium restoration and mimics your natural tooth structure.
After a healing period, we’ll top your implants with custom dental crowns to finalize your restoration. With the proper maintenance and oral health care, your implants can be a lifelong solution for restoring your stunning smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells customized to cover the surfaces of your teeth. This long-trusted cosmetic dentistry solution is ideal for rejuvenating your entire smile because we can personalize the size, shape, and color of your restoration.
Veneers don’t just cover cosmetic problems — they’re also ideal for supporting your natural tooth structures and resisting decay. The durable porcelain material can even last up to 10 years with the proper oral health care and preventive appointments at Carson Dental Care.

Frequently Asked Questions
The exact cost of your cosmetic dentistry treatment will depend on a number of factors, including the exact treatment you require and the extent of your specific dental issue. Dr. Aluning will go over the specific details of your treatment, including cost, during your initial consultation. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions about your procedure or express any concerns.
While a lot of insurance companies won’t cover cosmetic dentistry services, they may help with some of the expenses. Dr. Aluning and the rest of the team at Carson Dental Care encourage you to call your provider beforehand and ask them how much of your treatment they’re willing to cover.
Even if you’re underinsured or uninsured, don’t worry. Dr. Aluning wants all of her patients to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile, which is why we offer an in-office savings plan to help you save money. You can learn more about our savings plan by dialing our Carson office at (310) 549-5580.
While some cosmetic dentistry services are purely aesthetic, certain treatments can greatly enhance your oral health for the long-term. For example, dental bonding will repair your tooth while enhancing its appearance, while porcelain veneers will beautify your smile and also replace lost enamel, reducing dental sensitivity. Dr. Aluning will let you know about all of the benefits of your cosmetic dentistry treatment during your consultation.
Your cosmetic dentistry treatment shouldn’t be painful. We use anesthetic as needed for more invasive treatments like dental implants, but many less invasive cosmetic treatments cause little to no discomfort at all. Your comfort and safety comes first, so Dr. Aluning will let you know the specifics of your treatment and how we can help you stay pain free and relaxed during any procedure.
