Teeth Whitening

Drs Spero and Koutchek do teeth whitening using custom-fitted trays that you can use at home, on your own time. During the consultation and exam, we will take the time to explain the details of how to use the trays, and recommend a plan based on your individual dental needs. Brighten your smile today with teeth whitening!

Today's teeth whitening treatments are so easy, convenient and affordable that they've become a regular part of everyone's beauty routine. Our take-home whitening kit consists of custom-fitted cosmetic molds of your teeth as well as whitening gel. These professional- grade whitening kits produce excellent results over a longer period of time. Note: for best results, it's recommended that the take-home kit be done by a dentist. 

Porcelain Veneers

Aiming for a perfect smile? Dental veneers may be an option for chipped or discolored teeth. A thin layer of porcelain is adhered to the outside of your natural tooth, matching the color perfectly. Mission Dental and Pasadena Smiles are cosmetic dentists that can help you achieve a natural, beautiful look with dental veneers.

Years ago, smile makeovers involved multiple dental treatments over a period of several months. That's no longer the case, thanks to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth. They require little to no prepping and can often be applied in just one dental visit!

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped teeth, stained teeth and gaped teeth. As one of the most conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments around, cosmetic dental bonding requires little to no prepping and preserves most of the natural tooth structure. And it's fast, too! Dental bonding usually takes just one visit to complete.

Ceramic Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be made of gold, alloys or ceramic. The closer the crown to the front of the mouth, the more visible the crown will be, so in those situations ceramic dental crowns will match the surrounding teeth more closely. Our cosmetic dentists can work with you to find a perfect match to the rest of your smile.


Invisalign braces are a more cosmetically appealing type of braces for adults and teens. Rather than unsightly metal wires, they are in the shape of “aligners” that are custom fitted and slip over your teeth. Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed before eating or brushing your teeth, and are placed back over your teeth after. They are made of clear, BPA-free plastic and blend in with your natural tooth color. Mission Dental’s cosmetic dentists are certified to fit and sell this exciting new Invisalign technology.

Everyone's talking about Invisalign braces, and for good reason. Invisalign braces have completely transformed the way we think about and experience dental braces. With Invisalign braces, there's no worry about metal brackets and wires that are uncomfortable and unattractive. Invisalign braces include a series of clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and completely removable. You can eat what you want, drink what you want, and brush and floss more thoroughly to keep your dental health in top shape!

Smile Makeover

Tired of masking your smile because you don't like the way your teeth look? A smile makeover can be a big boost to your confidence and self-esteem. With a total smile makeover, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth and gaped teeth can be completely transformed into the smile of your dreams. This is done through a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, including white fillings, cosmetic dental bonding, porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns, dental braces, dental bridges and dental implants.
