Check out this new video testimonial from one of our very satisfied patients! Twenty years ago, Jennifer suffered from pain and headaches associated with stress on her temporomandibular joint (TMJ). In solving this, her previous dentist used dental crowns and veneers to improve the way her teeth came together and ease her TMJ pain. Although the procedure was successful, twenty years of wear combined with gum recession had affected the appearance and function of these restorations. 

An important component of the dentistry we provide is managing our patients' fears and expectations. Jennifer was understandably very nervous coming into her appointment to have her crowns and veneers replaced. On top of the typical stress of a dental visit, she was concerned if the new restorations would fit as well as the originals. Fortunately, Dr. Kari Ann Hong is an expert in providing dentistry with a compassionate touch. Jennifer put on our noise isolating headphones and relaxed while Dr. Kari finished the appointment in just two and a half hours! She even left our office in custom temporary crowns that mimicked the esthetics and mechanics of the permanent units to come. 

Having your smile rejuvenated can be a stressful and daunting process. However, we pride ourselves in creating a relaxing atmosphere that makes the experience enjoyable! If you would like to know more about dental crowns, veneers or implants, please contact our office at (805) 480-9820 or at
