Welcome to La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics, the office of Dr. Kami Kohani and his dedicated dental team. For over 22 years, Dr. Kohani has provided comprehensive cosmetic dental services as well as innovative orthodontic care to San Diego and Southern California residents who desire to enhance the health and appearance of their smiles. Since graduating from the UCLA School of Dentistry in 1991, Dr. Kohani has mastered the field of cosmetic dentistry, creating beautiful results for his patients and sharing his expertise with fellow dentists and orthodontists. Our goal is to bring you the aesthetic results you are looking for while also ensuring the health and functionality of your dentition.
In addition to his dedicated patient care, Dr. Kohani also recognizes the importance of continuing education, which is why he has taught and continues to teach thousands of dentists around the world about his specific techniques within cosmetic dentistry for over two decades. He also previously served as the Assistant Director and Senior Lecturer at the UCLA Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, having lectured internationally. Dr. Kohani’s expertise also includes volunteer work with underprivileged children who have facial deformities that impact their smiles and lives.
Dr. Kohani focuses his practice on adult aesthetic dentistry and accelerated adult orthodontics, which he believes are two fields that have the potential to provide its patients with the most customizable care. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, many patients do not receive the clarity they need to make an informed decision about the aesthetics of their smile and likewise, many dentists only present one or two treatment options for patients rather than assess what would truly be best for their dentition. Dr. Kohani makes it very easy for you to consider all avenues of cosmetic dental treatment by presenting various treatment options to you after assessing the current conditions of your smile. You will have a thorough understanding of your treatment results before any dental work begins.
Our procedures would not produce beautiful aesthetic results without the use of digital technology. La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics is a modern and state-of-the-art facility that integrates technology into almost every procedure we perform. Whether you are receiving custom restorations or require virtual treatment guides for surgical procedures, all of our processes are automated to make your treatment more efficient. With the amount of precision provided by each machine in our office, technology gives us the ability to create detailed treatment plans. Our approach to dentistry and orthodontics is conservative as we aim to preserve as much of your natural dentition as possible; the use of technology provides the intricacy needed to enhance the appearance of your teeth while also preserving their natural function, bite contact and alignment.
Regardless of the procedure, you are receiving, it will be discussed and performed with the utmost care so that you feel completely comfortable during every aspect of treatment. Each member of our staff spends time with you to personally understand your dental concerns and is detail-oriented from the moment you walk into our office until the end of your final appointment. Your initial cosmetic consultation will include x-rays with our CT cone beam, photographs, and dental molds to provide a thorough analysis of dental records while examining every aspect of your oral health.
Dr. Kohani and his team want to ensure that the foundation of the teeth are healthy before discussing your cosmetic goals. We will design a very comprehensive treatment plan that includes multiple options for you to consider. Various treatment plans might include procedures that show regard for your timeframe or budget, and together, you and Dr. Kohani will weigh the pros and cons of each option. However, your dental care is ultimately up to your discretion, and we let you make the final decision on which treatment(s) is best for you. Your comfort also includes your time in the dentist’s chair, which may involve sedation options for those who experience dental anxiety.
Dr. Kohani is certified in sedation dentistry and understands the necessary safety standards to make your dental experience positive and pleasurable. Patient satisfaction is one of the biggest priorities in our office, especially when it comes to treatments that are considered irreversible, which is why we take your comfort very seriously. We encourage you to schedule an appointment in our office to learn more about the cosmetic and orthodontic procedures we provide and find which treatment option is right for you.
