Precision Dental Care in a Spa-Like Environment

At Calabasas Smiles, we put patient comfort and relaxation first. From our stunning office décor to the subtle, warm lighting and soothing music, every element of our practice was designed with you, the patient, in mind. Dr. K and his friendly, compassionate staff provide our patients with a dental care experience that resembles a trip to the spa. Our wonderful comfort amenities include:

  • Warm scented towels.
  • Relaxing neck pillows.
  • Soft, soothing blankets.
  • Flatscreen TV monitors in every room, where you can watch your favorite regular programming or enjoy a movie.

For nervous or anxious patients who need further help relaxing during an appointment, we also provide oral sedation and IV sedation.

Our Dental Technology

Dr. K and the team are especially proud of their state-of-the-art dentist office that boasts a wide range of the latest dental technology, including:

CEREC One-Visit Dental Restorations

With CEREC, Dr. K can design, fabricate, and place custom-fitted dental restorations like crowns and veneers in a single visit to the office. Dr. K uses digital impressions of your teeth to design your porcelain restoration in a virtual environment. Once the design is complete, Dr. K sends it to the milling machine where computer-assisted manufacturing tools mill your unique restoration. Finally, to give your crown or veneer the finishing touches, Dr. K will apply tint and glaze by hand so that it looks indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

LANAP Soft Tissue Lasers

LANAP stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure and refers to a set of protocols that delineate the usage of soft tissue lasers in general dentistry. Dr. K uses the PerioLase MVP-7 brand of soft tissue laser, which he can use to gently perform periodontal therapy procedures such as:

  • Removing calcified plaque from below the gum in the treatment of gingivitis and gum disease.
  • Removing infected gum and connective tissue during gum disease treatment.
  • Treating canker sores.
  • Reshaping the gum line to improve the evenness of a patient’s smile or address an overabundance of visible gum tissue (a “gummy” smile).

Perhaps the best aspects of soft tissue lasers are their ability to remove incredibly precise amounts of tissue, making for a more conservative procedure, and the greatly reduced bleeding, discomfort, and recovery time patients can expect.

Digital X-rays

Traditional x-rays required the use of special papers and toxic chemicals to produce images of oral structures not visible to the naked eye. With digital x-rays, we have removed the need for special, potentially harmful supplies. Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation exposure our patients receive by 90%. In addition, digital x-rays create digital records which allow us to transfer your information to specialists and insurance companies rapidly and in an environmentally friendly manner.
