Read what patients from Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Newbury Park, Oak Park, Thousand Oaks and cities nearby are saying about Westlake Smile Design.

Elinor B. Agoura Hills, CA
About two years ago, I was looking for a dentist in Conejo Valley and one of my close friends recommended Dr. Hakimi at Westlake Smile Design. I was a little nervous at first, not having the best experiences at the dentist previously. To my surprise, my experience at Westlake Smile Design was phenomenal. Dr. Hakimi is warm and patient, and really cares about his work. His staff is also very pleasant and attentive. But even better, at Westlake Smile Design they use the latest in dental technology to make my experience painless and relaxed. I had never been aware some of this technology existed. Here is a dentist that cares enough to invest in his practice and his patients. I will be a loyal patient of Westlake Smile Design for as long as I can be.

Dental Implants in Thousand Oaks, CA

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root… Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

In just two or three dental visits, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Special thin laminates, called veneers, can often be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Stronger types of veneers made of porcelain, also called composite veneers, typically last longer because they are bonded to the tooth.
