"When I opened my business next door to these good people, they became my dentists. I didn't do any research - I want exclusively with proximity. And they've been great! Offices are beautiful, the care is great. Twice a year cleanings and got veneers to replace two teeth that had been chipped for decades! No upsell on any services. Just good people doing great work. Thanks!!!"

"I want to let everyone know what an amazing experience I had at Dr Alan Howard's office. I want to start by saying before I even went to Dr Howard I went to three other dentist and they all lied to me. They tried to sell me on various different procedures that I didnt need and all would have cost me a lot of money even with my insurance. I was really losing faith that I would find a real honest dentist that help me with the problems I was having and not try to sell me something else. My teeth and gums were very sensitive, I was grinding my teeth and so my front teeth were short and very sensative. He saw me and explained the process he would do to get my teeth looking actually perfect and fix the sensitivity. He put veneers to fix my short, sensitive teeth, whitened and cleaned all my teeth to match making my smile looking perfectly shaped and white. I won't forget to mention his staff who is amazing from the girl that greets you soon as you walk in to the dental hygienist. The manners and professionalism is a standard that all other dentist should strive to meet. Dr Howard's 30 plus years as a dentist shows as he is in the business to make perfect smiles. I finally know that not all dentist are only trying to sell you procedures you dont need as both his honesty and end results have proven nothing less then superior to others."

"This office is amazing. Dr Alan Howard is brilliant! I could not be more grateful, When he kindly took me on and repaired the horrible veneer work I had done at another dentist. I had dark spots on my brand new veneers and they looked like dentures , from the first awful dentist. I was in the dental chair for 8 hours at a time. 2 hours with Dr Alan. I was so scared to trust again. But Dr Alan handled me with care and compassion. It's been a breeze comparatively to the last dentist. Having to remove all the veneers placed by last dentist. Dr Alan did that painlessly, and my new veneers are gorgeous! I'm eternally grateful to him and his wonderful talented son that is also a dentist in the office. You could not find a more honest caring place! You can feel safe and secure that you will receive the best and newest technology available at this office. The staff is amazing also! Anonymously yours...x"

Cosmetic veneers may be used to rapidly hide stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly spaced or shaped. At The Dental Office Encino, your cosmetic veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. In your consultation, Dr. Alan or Yonatan Howard will listen to your objectives and concerns so they can personalize your procedure. Dr. Howard may also determine whether you’re a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by analyzing the total health of your mouth. You shouldn’t have symptoms of gum problems, routinely grind your teeth, or clench your jaw.


When you’ve decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Howard, they will take dental impressions. Your cosmetic veneers could be created in our office as you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain or composite resin. As soon as your custom veneers are prepared, Dr. Howard will take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Howard will make small adjustments so that your veneers fit properly.


Since getting veneers usually doesn’t require anesthesia, you ought to be able to get back to your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to extreme temperatures for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are more resistant to stains compared to the natural teeth, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and food (coffee, red wine, and tobacco) to keep your veneers bright. To prevent chipping your veneers, you shouldn’t chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. Continue to go to dental examinations and cleanings at The Dental Office Encino so that we can track the condition of your cosmetic veneers, teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Howard will tell you if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired.


Cosmetic veneers are an elective treatment, so they’re generally not included in dental insurance. The Dental Office Encino does take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to make your veneers more affordable. At your consultation, Dr. Howard will personalize your plan to meet your needs and budget. He will discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.
