before & afters
Creating dream smiles
Our patient had her modeling career tragically ended by an auto accident where she broke her 3 front teeth. She always hated her gummy smile and desired a youthful, white, model’s smile. To create her beautiful smile, our Del Mar dental team first completed her case digitally using photo editing software so that she could see her possibilities. After we found the smile she desired, we collaborated with a gum specialist where she had an Esthetic Gum Lift completed. This then laid the canvas for us to create the smile of her dreams.
Our 15-year-old patient was born without lateral incisors (congenitally missing lateral incisors). She was too young for dental implants. So we worked closely with her orthodontist to create a situation where we could create beautiful and strong Maryland Style bridges without drilling on her existing teeth.
The porcelain bridges were just bonded onto her existing teeth. The patient was diligent with whitening thus creating a beautiful canvas for us to create her new smile. The goals in her case were:
1) To have a whiter more cosmetic smile
2) To make her canines (eye teeth) less pointy and more curvy
3) To straighten the one central incisor with conservative bonding
The patient and parents were extremely happy with her new whiter, cosmetic smile. This case was so successful due to communication amongst a team consisting of the patient, the parents, the orthodontist, the porcelain artist and Dr. Campbell.

In-Office & Take-Home Teeth Whitening
In-office whitening delivers fast results and can significantly brighten your smile in just one appointment. At our Del Mar dental office, we use Zoom! Whitening, and this treatment is ideal if you want to whiten your teeth quickly before an upcoming special event.
We also offer custom take-home whitening kits, which provide you with professional results in the comfort of your own home. During your consultation, Dr. Pizzi will assess your smile, discuss your needs, and help you determine which option is best for you.
Reshape & Restore Your Teeth
Bonding, Shaping & Contouring
Dental bonding involves the application of dental resin to improve the color and shape of your tooth. The resin is applied directly to your tooth, then sculpted by Dr. Pizzi to alter its shape, cover up stains, and restore your smile. This treatment is fast and non-invasive.
Shaping and contouring (also called “enameloplasty”) is also often performed alongside dental bonding. This treatment involves gently removing a thin layer of enamel from adjacent teeth to create a more even, pleasing smile.
Versatile Smile Restoration
Veneers are designed to cover up the front chewing surfaces of your teeth and they are usually made from a strong porcelain material. During treatment, a small layer of enamel will be removed from your teeth to make room for your veneers. Then, they will be bonded into place, covering up flaws like small gaps, serious stains, misshapen or small teeth. In just 2 appointments at our Del Mar office over a period of 2-3 weeks, you can completely overhaul the appearance of your smile!
Treat “Gummy” Smiles
Crown lengthening refers to the process of trimming away gum tissue to make your teeth look longer. This treatment creates a more aesthetically-appealing smile. With crown lengthening, you can get rid of a “gummy” smile in just a single, one-hour appointment!
straighten your teeth
We offer Invisalign treatment for patients who would like straighter, more even teeth. This revolutionary orthodontic option makes it possible to get a straight smile without the time commitment and highly visible treatment associated with traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so nobody will need to know that you're going through orthodontic treatment! Call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pizzi in Del Mar.

As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Pizzi offers a highly personalized approach to cosmetic treatments. If you require more than one procedure to achieve your smile goals, this is known as a smile makeover.
