A chipped tooth, yellowing teeth, or even missing teeth can do wonders toward lowering your self-esteem, which is why Flintridge Dental Studio is offering cosmetic dentistry services to bring back your confidence by giving you the smile you deserve.

Some of the services Flintridge Dental Studio offers include:

Lumineers and Da Vinci Veneers

For misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, porcelain veneers are the answer. Basically, veneers are thin porcelain coverings that fit over and are bonded to your teeth, look natural, and are made from the most advanced dental ceramic available. Lumineers and da Vinci veneers are contact lens-thin and super translucent. Because of this thinness, little or no tooth reduction is necessary.


Usually the sign of awkwardness, braces are the bane of many a high school student, and some adults as well. With Invisalign, you can now get straight teeth without the traditional metal braces. You get perfectly aligned teeth in as little as 9-15 months, whether you have overcrowding, widely spaced teeth, overbite, underbite, or crossbite. The clear plastic custom-made aligners are replaced every two weeks, and no metal or wires means less time in the chair getting adjustments. This means no mouth irritation, and even better, no one will know you’re straightening your teeth because – they’re invisible! The Invisalign™ system is easily removable so you can not only eat and drink what you want while in treatment, brushing and flossing are no problem.

Dr. Harmik Derhartounian is an Invisalign Preferred Provider.


Cosmetic dentistry of the future, Flintridge Dental Studio offers crowns made with CEREC, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, in about an hour. No more temporaries, additional visits, or crowns that don’t seem to fit right. Just because CEREC crowns are convenient and aesthetically desirable doesn’t mean you have to give up function. These modern restorations dramatically reduce cracking, lowering the likelihood of needing future root canal treatment. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations are bonded to the tooth with the optimum strength available.

Galileo Implants

It used to be, if you were missing teeth, you had to use bridges or removable dentures. These sit on top of the gums, which make smiles look fake. With Galileo implants, the implants sit under the gums, which gives the tooth restoration a more lifelike appearance as if to come out through the gums like the original tooth did.

Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and they don’t need to be taken out at night.

Kör Deep Bleaching

KöR Deep Bleaching is so effective it is the only whitening in the world that will whiten even congenital and tetracycline-discolored teeth in a short time. And, with easy occasional maintenance at home, the results are PERMANENT, even if you drink tea, coffee, or red wine.

Flintridge Dental Studio also offers take-home tray services. With these, you receive supplies and instructions to complete the whitening process in the privacy of your own home. This procedure is safe and effective with dazzling results in just 1-14 days.

Just because you have teeth problems doesn’t mean you have to stop smiling. Reinvigorate your smile at Flintridge Dental Studio, where Dr. Harmik Derhartounian can help improve every smile, no matter the problem. Confidence is just a smile away, with the help of Flintridge Dental Studio.
