Dr. Kathleen Carson of Westlake Dental Arts is a cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles who focuses on full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry. In this testimonial video, patient Ralph B. from Southern California talks about his experience with Dr. Carson’s full-mouth reconstruction surgery.
According to Ralph, “They do a really good job of preventive maintenance here. Because of my regular exams, they saw some things that were going to be giving me a lot of problems. I decided that I really needed to take care of them. She explained what was involved, and the pros and cons. They pretty much took the bad areas out, got everything nice and even, and replaced them with what I think are permanent teeth. [They] got the spacing a lot better, resurfaced a lot of the teeth I had from before. And it had a positive effect by making my smile look a lot better.”
In addition to upper-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Carson offers other aspects of cosmetic dentistry--like full mouth reconstruction--as well as the services provided by the average dentist. Westlake Dental Arts’ staff undergoes extensive training; Dr. Carson invites experts to teach her staff inside the office and sends them to wherever the best education is offered. Westlake Dental Arts also prides itself on its state-of-the art medical technology. Dr. Carson uses needleless anesthesia, and she provides sedation upon request for patients who are anxious. Overall, Westlake Dental Arts makes every effort to provide a relaxing dental experience and treat patients like family.
