Chipped, Broken, Discolored Teeth

Veneers can provide you with a more brilliant smile. Veneers are thin shells that are placed over your existing teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. In addition to erasing the signs of chipped or discolored teeth, veneers can also restore the length of the teeth back to where they used to be, prior to the breakdown of your natural bite. Porcelain veneers, particularly, provide you with luminous teeth that mimic the translucent appearance of natural enamel—without the blemishes you’ve been struggling with.

Straight, Well-aligned Teeth

Crowded, crooked, misaligned teeth might have you wishing for a straighter smile. With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile of your dreams discreetly while restoring the correct function of your bite. And you’ll prevent future chipping and breakdown of the teeth. The clear aligners are nearly invisible, and this option causes much less irritation to your gums and cheeks than metal braces. A well-aligned bite is also easier to maintain with brushing and flossing. With a fully digital imaging dental office, you won’t have to worry about messy dental impressions, either.

Serving Newport Beach as the Only AACD Accredited Woman in the Area

The path to excellence is never easy or quick, but Dr. Dimple Desai has navigated that journey and emerged as one of very few dentists across the world with her level of skill and knowledge. Dr. Dimple Desai started in dentistry as a dental hygienist before continuing her journey to become an award-winning, top-accredited, peer-reviewed and published dentist. She is an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry accredited dentist who is focused on providing a superb experience and flawless smile to every patient. Dr. Desai’s accreditation makes her an eminently qualified dentist performing at the highest standards for cosmetic and restorative dentistry. The number of AACD accredited dentists worldwide currently stands at fewer than 500, and Dr. Desai is the only female dentist in Newport Beach with that accreditation. The accreditation process is the most stringent and respected across the industry. Dr. Desai achieved her accreditation by meeting these stringent standards with first a written examination followed by attending workshops hosted by the AACD, submitting clinical case studies, and taking an oral examination. The oral examination required Dr. Desai to present her clinical case studies to a board of other top dentists in cosmetic dentistry. There she answered their questions on her choices in each clinical case, explaining her thought processes in diagnosis and treatment planning, choice of any materials used, and what techniques she implemented and why. Her work underwent the highest scrutiny by cosmetic dentists setting the highest standards in the industry for her to receive this accreditation. You can trust your smile is in the absolute best hands with Dr. Desai.

Dr. Desai is proud to be the only dentist in California who works with Miss California pageant winners.

AACD 1

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) was founded in 1984 by two visionary doctors who wanted to create an organization dedicated to the art and science of dentistry. The organization bloomed into the world’s largest organization for cosmetic dental professionals with members who are dental professionals, laboratory technicians, educators, and researchers from 70 countries across the world. The AACD sets the highest standards for cosmetic dentistry, and only 490 dentists worldwide have achieved accreditation through the rigorous candidacy process. Dr. Desai is one of those dentists and the only female dentist in Newport Beach to hold the accreditation. The accreditation process is the most stringent and respected across the industry.
