Saying cosmetic dentistry is “life changing” is an understatement. Dr. Arya adds:
“I have watched some patients tear up when they see their new smile for the first time — and that was only with the temporaries on.”

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a patient truly smile when seeing his or her new smile. At Whitney Oaks Dental, we offer full smile makeovers that will have you smiling again in no time.
The smile design process is comprehensive, as Dr. Arya considers many factors when creating your smile: tooth traits, facial structure, gums, lip line, skin, hair, eyes, age, build, and gender. All of these factors go into your care, to create a smile with optimal functionality and sensational beauty.
The Smile Design process can involve a combination of procedures, including:
The design process is exciting and fun. Witness your own digitally enhanced smile before we make any changes to your mouth. Hold a wax model of your new smile and make any changes you see fit. Wear temporary veneers and take a few weeks to show off your "trial smile” to friends and family.
Of all the methods available today for changing and improving the look of your smile, veneers are among the most popular and successful with our patients. The process involves removing a small amount of tooth structure to make room for the veneers. The dental lab then fabricates the veneers from impressions. After placement, the veneers look like natural teeth. Some advantages of porcelain veneers over bonding include increased longevity and resistance to staining.
Are your preparing for an important occasion like a wedding or a job interview? Even if you're just curious about professional-strength teeth brightening, Dr. Ashish Arya would love to speak with you.
The key to whiter teeth is consistency. While a single in-office visit is a good start, it won't be enough to address (much less reverse) the effects of lifelong eating habits that may include tea, soda, coffee, red wine, or dyed fruit juices and high-pigment foods.
Dr. Arya is a strong advocate of the Opalescence system; a safe, take-home whitening gel with customized trays that fit your mouth precisely, whitening even the pockets between your teeth - the most difficult areas to reach.
What's the biggest difference between regular porcelain veneers and Lumineers? Three words: Dr. Ashish Arya.
Lumineers are "zero-prep" veneers crafted exclusively by Den-Mat Holdings, LLC via a proprietary process using special Cerinate porcelain. At approximately 0.2 mm, they are as thin as a contact lens and require little or no removal of sensitive tooth structure. Lumineers are completely reversible and they resist leakage and cracking. The procedure involves no drilling, no anesthetic injections and no pain.
Lumineers are not for everybody, so we ask you schedule your appointment with us to see if this service is the right one for you.
We pride ourselves on conservative dentistry. However, there are times when tooth decay and gum disease gets in the way of a beautiful and healthy smile.
Dentistry has advanced so much over the years; dental treatments that were once considered “scary” and “intrusive” are now much more comfortable and easy to perform.
Scroll down to see how we can restore function and beautiful in your smile.
Crowns fabricated using a combination of metal and porcelain are opaque or flat looking because they do not let light pass through as a natural tooth does, which can result in a dark or gray line next to the gumline. We exclusively provide metal-free, all porcelain-bonded restorations. When properly placed, they are as strong, if not stronger, than the porcelain-covered metal crowns. Notice the appearance of natural teeth again. Metal-free dentistry can restore your smile back to natural form and beauty.
Replace missing teeth in a way that best maintains your hygiene, enhances your bite, preserves your facial contours, and maximizes function. You can accomplish all of this with dental implants.
Implants offer a greater success rate and more reliable longevity than any other type of restoration. Not only do they replace missing teeth, they also maintain the structure of your jaw, since the body sees the implant screw as a tooth root and reacts by maintaining the proper bone density underneath the area.
An implant has two phases: surgical extraction and restorative placement. Dr. Arya has a long-standing partnership with several local periodontal and oral surgeons who will place your implant. Depending on the health of your mouth, the healing process can take anywhere from three weeks to three months. Dr. Arya completes your implant with a beautiful new crown - color-matched perfectly to the rest of your teeth.
If you need to fill the place left by a missing tooth, call our office and ask about scheduling a consultation with Dr. Arya.
With the modern technologies of dental adhesion, resins, lasers, and state-of-art ceramics, metal-free fillings are close to rivaling nature in strength, wear, function, and appearance. We only perform metal-free fillings to prevent problems from becoming bigger issues. Additionally, metal-free fillings blend seamlessly with your smile.
Dental preventative care is an integral part of our practice. Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth, gums, and overall well-being. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly.

Laser dentistry is a modern and innovative technique, changing the world of dentistry. Its precision allows Dr. Arya to perform general therapies with little to no pain and healing times.
Do you have kids who play sports? Protect their smiles from the unexpected with our customized sports guards. Unlike boil-and-bite guards, Under Armour sports guards are molded and fitted to your child’s bite, allowing better protection and comfort.
If you or your loved one snore, it may be as a result of sleep apnea. This life-threatening disease occurs when your airway is blocked during slumber, resulting in snoring. If not treated, it could lead to health issues, such as heart disease, obesity, and sometimes death.
Normally, the CPAP machine is used to help combat sleep apnea; however, its bulky appearance and uncomfortable fitting can be a turn-off. At Whitney Oaks Dental, we offer comfortable orthotics (or mouth guards) to open your airways while you sleep peacefully. Swap snoring with peaceful sleeping by contacting our office today.
Our dental cleanings and exams are far from routine. When you come in for your first visit, your appointment will include digital x-rays, a periodontal assessment, a gentle cleaning from our hygienists, and one-on-one time with Dr. Arya to discuss your dental goals and craft a treatment plan.
No matter your game plan, you can trust your appointments to go without a hitch, thanks to the seamless communication with our team, advanced technology, and the use of keeping everything digital (paperwork, charts, and impressions).
