Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. Under the skilled hands of Dr. Fariba Bigdeli at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, veneers become more than just a treatment - they're a work of art. Whether you're looking to fix discoloration, gaps, or irregularities, veneers can offer an impeccable solution.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are customized, wafer-thin shells of tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of the teeth. They're an ideal solution for enhancing the appearance of the front teeth.
How Do Veneers Work?
At our Laguna Niguel clinic, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli will first evaluate your dental health to ensure veneers are the right choice. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed to make room for the veneer, ensuring a natural fit and appearance. The veneer is then bonded to the tooth using a specialized cement and light source.
Types of Veneers:
At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, we offer both porcelain and resin veneers. While porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant and reflect light similarly to natural teeth, resin veneers require the removal of less tooth enamel and are thinner.
- Instantly enhance and brighten your smile
- Fix minor cosmetic issues like gaps or misaligned teeth
- Durable and long-lasting with proper care
- Resistant to staining, especially porcelain veneers
With proper care, porcelain veneers can last up to 10-15 years, while resin veneers can last between 5-7 years.
No, veneers are a permanent solution as they require a slight removal of the original tooth enamel.
Treat them like natural teeth - brush, floss regularly, and avoid biting hard objects.
Absolutely. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli ensures that the veneers match the shade and appearance of your natural teeth.

What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration from teeth. It's an effective way to improve the appearance of your smile without any invasive treatments.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Under Dr. Fariba Bigdeli's expertise, a bleaching agent is carefully applied to the teeth. This agent breaks down staining compounds, restoring the teeth's natural whiteness. The process can be tailored to achieve the desired level of brightness.

Bridge the gap to a complete smile at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Under Dr. Fariba Bigdeli’s expert care, regain function and aesthetics with dental bridges.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are custom-made dental prosthetics used to replace one or several missing teeth. They 'bridge' the gap where teeth are absent. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli ensures the design and fit of the bridge perfectly complements the rest of your teeth.
How Dental Bridges Work
Dental bridges consist of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are known as pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination. Anchored by either natural teeth or implants, bridges restore both function and appearance.
Types of Dental Bridges with Dr. Bigdeli
Dr. Bigdeli offers a variety of bridges based on the location, function, aesthetic considerations, and cost. These include traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bonded bridges.
- Restores the ability to chew and speak properly.
- Maintains the shape of your face.
- Distributes the bite forces properly by replacing missing teeth.
- Prevents remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Offers a natural appearance, blending seamlessly with existing teeth.
With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last between 5 to 15 years, and even longer.
Regular brushing and flossing, coupled with routine check-ups with Dr. Bigdeli, will help maintain the bridge and surrounding teeth.
Yes, at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli crafts the bridge to match the shade and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless appearance.

Rediscover your perfect smile with durable Dental Crowns at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Entrust your smile to Dr. Fariba Bigdeli's expert hands.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns, often referred to as "caps", are prosthetic restorations that entirely cover or encircle a damaged or decayed tooth or dental implant. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli utilizes the latest techniques and materials to ensure your crown seamlessly blends with your natural teeth, both functionally and aesthetically.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
While dental crowns can serve cosmetic purposes, they're predominantly used for protection. They're ideal for:
- Restoring a broken or worn-down tooth.
- Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling.
- Holding a dental bridge in place.
- Protecting a weak tooth from breaking.
- Covering a dental implant or a discolored tooth.
The Dental Crown Procedure with Dr. Bigdeli
The journey begins with a thorough examination and preparation of the tooth. A mold of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab, where the crown is custom-made. Once ready, Dr. Bigdeli places the crown over the prepared tooth and cements it in place, ensuring a comfortable fit and a rejuvenated appearance.
- Restores the shape, size, and strength of the tooth.
- Enhances the cosmetic appearance of your smile.
- Provides protection and structural stability to damaged teeth.
- Long-lasting with proper care.
- Made from durable materials like porcelain, ceramic, or metal.
Dental crowns typically last between 5 to 15 years, depending on the material, oral hygiene practices, and wear and tear they're exposed to.
While it might feel slightly different initially, over time it should feel and function just like a natural tooth.
Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups with Dr. Bigdeli are essential. While the crown protects the tooth, the base can still be prone to gum disease or decay.
Absolutely. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli ensures that the crown matches the shade and shape of your natural teeth.
Dental Inlays & Onlays
Revitalize your smile with precise Dental Inlays & Onlays treatments at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Trust in Dr. Fariba Bigdeli's expertise for lasting solutions.
Understanding Dental Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are indirect restorations used to repair rear teeth that have mild to moderate tooth decay, or for restoring cracked or fractured teeth where the damage is not severe enough to require a dental crown. Crafted outside the mouth and then bonded to the damaged area, they offer a well-fitting, stronger, and longer-lasting reparative solution to tooth decay or similar damage.
Inlays vs. Onlays
While both inlays and onlays address tooth decay and damage, their applications differ slightly. Inlays are used when the damage lies within the cusps or bumps on a tooth's biting surface. On the other hand, onlays, sometimes referred to as "partial crowns," cover a larger area and are used when the damage extends beyond the cusps of the treated tooth. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli will guide you in choosing the ideal solution based on the extent of your tooth's damage.
The Treatment Process
Dr. Bigdeli begins the treatment with a comprehensive examination of the affected tooth, followed by the removal of the decayed portion. An impression is taken to custom-make the inlay or onlay, which is then cemented onto the tooth in a subsequent visit, ensuring a perfect fit and rejuvenated appearance.
- Preserves natural tooth structure.
- Highly durable and long-lasting.
- Enhances the strength of the tooth.
- Superior fit reduces bacterial leakage.
- Aesthetic longevity, as they do not discolor over time.
With proper care, inlays and onlays can last upwards of 20-30 years, often outlasting amalgam fillings.
In many instances, they can offer a stronger, more durable solution than traditional fillings and are especially suitable for treating large cavities.
Daily brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups with Dr. Bigdeli will ensure their longevity and optimal oral health.
Yes, one of the advantages is their natural appearance. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli ensures they match the shade of the surrounding teeth.
Perfect your smile line with expert gum contouring at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli artfully reshapes gums for a harmonious smile.
What is Gum Contouring?
Gum contouring, also known as gingival sculpting or gum reshaping, is a cosmetic dental procedure meant to correct and shape the gum line. Whether you have gums that are too high or too low, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics is equipped to craft a more balanced and appealing smile.
Why Opt for Gum Contouring?
Gums that cover a significant portion of your teeth can give a "gummy" appearance to your smile, while gums that are too high can make your teeth appear longer, often attributed to gum recession. Both conditions can result from genetics, health conditions, or medications. Gum contouring offers an effective solution to these aesthetic concerns.
The Gum Contouring Process with Dr. Bigdeli
The procedure is relatively simple. After administering a local anesthetic to numb the area, Dr. Bigdeli uses specialized tools to gently reshape and trim away excess gum tissue, revealing a more symmetrical gum line.
- Provides a balanced, harmonious smile.
- Improves self-confidence in one's appearance.
- Permanent results with a relatively quick recovery.
- Safe and precise, with minimal discomfort.
- Addresses both aesthetic and oral health concerns.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia, ensuring a pain-free experience. Some minor discomfort might be felt after the anesthetic wears off, but it's typically manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
While the gums might be tender and swollen for a few days post-procedure, most patients return to regular activities within a day.
Yes, once the gums have been reshaped, the results are typically permanent. However, gums can still recede due to other factors like gum disease.
While primarily cosmetic, gum contouring can also benefit oral health by removing areas where bacteria might accumulate.
Root Canal Therapy
Ease pain and save your natural tooth with Root Canal Therapy at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Trust Dr. Fariba Bigdeli for a painless, revitalizing experience.
Understanding Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy, commonly referred to as a "root canal", is a treatment designed to repair and save a tooth that's badly decayed or infected. At Laguna Dental and Orthodontics, Dr. Fariba Bigdeli ensures the procedure is as pain-free and comfortable as possible, aiming to preserve your natural tooth and alleviate pain.
Why Might You Need a Root Canal?
When the nerve or pulp of a tooth becomes infected or damaged, it can cause severe pain and swelling. If left untreated, it can lead to dental abscesses or even the loss of the tooth. Root Canal Therapy serves to:
- Remove the inflamed or infected pulp.
- Clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth.
- Fill and seal the space to prevent future infections.
The Root Canal Process with Dr. Bigdeli
The treatment starts with an X-ray to determine the shape of the root canals and check for signs of infection. After local anesthesia is administered, Dr. Bigdeli removes the inflamed or infected pulp, cleans the inside of the tooth, and fills and seals the space. In many cases, a crown is recommended to restore the tooth's functionality and appearance fully.
- Preserves and saves the natural tooth.
- Alleviates severe pain and discomfort.
- Prevents the spread of infection.
- Reduces the need for repeated dental procedures.
- Restores normal biting force and sensation.
Modern techniques and effective anesthesia make the procedure as painless as getting a filling.
Most patients return to their regular activities the next day. Some might experience minor discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
Regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups with Dr. Bigdeli, are crucial for ensuring the treated tooth's longevity.
With proper care, a tooth that has had root canal therapy can last a lifetime. The success rate is very high, typically above 95%.
Opt for discreet and aesthetic Tooth-colored Fillings at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics in Laguna Niguel. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli combines function with natural appearance.
What are Tooth-colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings, often referred to as composite fillings or white fillings, are dental restorations designed to mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. Made of a composite resin material, these fillings seamlessly blend with your teeth, making them virtually invisible. Dr. Fariba Bigdeli at Laguna Dental and Orthodontics prioritizes both the health and aesthetics of your smile.
Why Choose Tooth-colored Fillings?
Unlike amalgam (silver) fillings that can be quite noticeable, tooth-colored fillings maintain the natural appearance of your teeth. They are not only used for cavities but can also repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth.
The Procedure with Dr. Bigdeli
After the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, Dr. Bigdeli applies the composite in layers, using a light specialized to harden each layer. Once the cavity is filled, she shapes the composite to fit the tooth and polishes it to prevent staining and early wear.
- Aesthetically pleasing as they blend with natural teeth.
- Less removal of the tooth structure required compared to amalgam fillings.
- Supports the remaining tooth structure, preventing breakage.
- Insulates the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
- Free of mercury, which is present in amalgam fillings.
With proper care, tooth-colored fillings can last 7-10 years or longer. Their longevity can vary based on the location of the filling and oral habits.
The procedure is typically pain-free with the use of local anesthesia. There might be some minor sensitivity after the filling is placed, but this usually subsides in a few days.
Regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups with Dr. Bigdeli, will help maintain the fillings and overall oral health.
While they might be slightly more expensive than amalgam fillings due to their aesthetic benefits, many patients find the natural appearance well worth the investment.
