Read below to see what problems Cosmetic dentistry can correct.

Dark or Stained Teeth

Teeth whitening can remove stains from teeth or lightens discolored teeth. Dr. Ben offers his patients the convenience of take-home whitening trays or Kor Whitening in the dental office. 

Chipped Teeth

Accidents happen and sometimes leave your teeth chipped. Dr. Ben, your dentist in Ventura, CA., provides dental bonding for minor chips and cracks. For more extensive damage, consider porcelain veneers.

Crooked Teeth

If you have mildly crooked teeth but don’t want years of wearing braces, Dr. Ben can fix them with veneers. Braces are not the only way to straighten crooked teeth. With veneers, the waiting time is significantly reduced than wearing orthodontics.

Missing Teeth

If you are looking for a replacement tooth, dental crowns, bridges, or dental implants are available to fill in your smile’s gaps.

Cracked Tooth or Worn Down Teeth

A crown can make a huge difference in correcting cracked and worn down teeth. Not only does a crown give your tooth a more attractive appearance, but it also reinforces to protect it against further damage.

Unattractive amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings can be distracting and unattractive. A dental crown will cover these fillings and give you a flawless smile.

Gappy Smile

Both dental bonding or a set of porcelain veneers can quickly close large or small unwanted spaces in your grin.


All cavities need fillings to prevent further decay. Silver amalgam fillings don’t have to be the only option. You can choose composite resin fillings, which are tooth-colored and match your natural teeth.  

Broken Teeth

Broken teeth can be unsightly, but even worse, they can keep you from chewing correctly. Broken teeth are repaired with dental bonding or with crowns for a better appearance to restore biting functionality.
