Teeth Whitening

Treatment Steps:

  • Pre-whitening Exam: Before deciding to have teeth whitening treatments, you must have a dental exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening treatment.
  • Recent Dental Cleaning: A recent dental cleaning is required in order to make sure the whitening treatment is effective as possible.
  • Color/Shade Selection: Your dentist will match the current shade of your teeth using the guide, and you can discuss which shade is most desirable and reasonable to achieve, and compare the results to the original shade as treatment progresses.

Crowns

Dental crowns are also known as “caps,” as they fit on top of existing teeth or over dental implants. Dental crowns are most often made of porcelain, a material that is both strong and non-porous (thus more resistant to staining like tooth enamel), and reflects light in much the same way as a natural tooth.

Treatment Steps:

  • First, your dentist will numb the area to be treated with local anesthetic.
  • Next, they will reshape the outside tooth by shaving and removing enough of the tooth material to allow the crown to sit on top and fit with the rest of your teeth.
  • Once this process is complete, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory where a permanent crown will be created to match your smile.
  • Your dentist will create and place a temporary crown to seal and protect the tooth temporarily until your permanent crown is ready for placement.

Our Happy Clients

  •   I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the quality dental expertise of Dr. Hofkes and Dr. Yin.  Dr. Yin is extremely friendly and sympathetic to new nervous patients.  She was so thorough and explained in detail which eased my anxiety.  The deep cleaning and follow up extraction was so pleasant aside from the usual pain and agony of most dentist trips.  But with dr. Yin, I couldn't have been more comfortable in this situation.  Not only was I perfectly distracted with TV shows,  her knowledge and high level of skill made the entire experience a level above all other dental offices I have visited

  •   My boyfriend recommended this dentist office to me, and boy am I glad i went! From the moment you walk in you are greeted by the friendly receptionist Ailey who goes above and beyond to make you feel right at home. Everyone who works at this facility is extremely personable and ensures that you are comfortable and taken care of. In addition, Center Plaza Dentistry is very clean with the latest and greatest equipment. Plus, you get to watch Netflix...who wouldn't love that? I highly recommend this dentist office not only because the service is amazing, but the people who work here are fantastic. You definitely won't be disappointed!

  •   I chipped my front tooth in a softball game 4 weeks ago and didn't know what to do! I called this dentist and they were able to get me in right away! I am a pretty picky person, especially when it comes to my front teeth. They had me in and out in a little over an hour, and the tooth honestly looks better than it did before! The doctor was pleasant, and the procedure was painless. From start to finish, the workers in the front to the doctor, everyone was really nice. I would HIGHLY recommend this dentist. Job Well Done!

  •   Great new dental office. It's a beautiful place and a true gem in Los alamitos .

    Ailee scheduled my appt and she was very friendly . Carolyn was nice as well.

    Dr Yin made recommendations that made sense and was knowledgeable about my concerns.

    Now I just gotta go back for some fillings...

  •   A few weeks ago, my veneer of 11+ years fell and I had to urgently have it replaced because I had to attend an important event just around that time. My  previous specialist was in LA and I didn't want to drive, and honestly, I wasn't even happy with the veneer he made for me years ago - the color was off and the shape was not perfect and I felt it was literally pushed on me. I didn't have a good experience and dreaded for the same thing to happen. I went to a few local specialists but did not feel comfortable with either. And then I discovered Center Plaza Dentistry on Yelp (thank you Yelpers!) and wanted to give the place a try. I am so glad I did!

    I have to admit, this is the best dental clinic I've been to. The place is absolutely beautiful, with nice calming colors and personality. Modern equipment. Sit back in your chair and watch your favorite Netfix movie.

    But it is really the people who work there that make the biggest difference. Ailee at the front desk is the happiest and the most welcoming person you can imagine. She makes you feel at home!

    Carolyn, the dental assistant is professional and courteous. She did an amazing job with the temporary tooth they made me until the porcelain veneer was ready. Honestly, my temporary looked much better than the real veneer I had before:)

    Now, let's talk about Dr. Hofkes. I cannot recommend him enough. What an amazing dentist, and also a wonderful person. He listened carefully to my concern, made sure I was 100% happy with both the temporary and the final veneer before cementing them. No pushing his services whatsoever. Extremely honest and I do appreciate it. He called me personally after each appointment to  make sure everything was ok. I mean, where do you get that? My tooth looks beautiful and I am happy!

    I cannot recommend this dental clinic enough. Dr. Hofkes and his team are the best!

  •   Since my grandma loved it so much, I decided to go back and get some work done. I had been lagging a long time because of my pregnancy and nursing. I was so worried that I'd need a root canal or something because I waited over a year.

    Turns out I had nothing to worry about. I got a cleaning and two fillings, and to my amazement, it didn't even hurt. Dr. Yin is very gentle. They even turned on a movie for me so I wouldn't get bored.

    When I left the office, I couldn't believe how white my teeth were from the cleaning. I feel a little embarrassed that I was walking around with yellow teeth for so long. I will definitely come back every 6 months to maintain my pearly whites.

    It's been a couple of weeks, and my fillings still feel great. Super balanced and no issues at all. Love this place. In fact I love it so much that I'm going to get my Invisalign done with them.

  •   I work at a dental office and today I decided to give this place a try. I came in today thinking that all I needed was a cleaning and 1 crown. I was so wrong, I never knew that my mouth was so dirty. I go to the dentist regularly. Dr. Hofkes spend about 40mins cleaning my teeth. At first I thought he was just pretending to clean my teeth but when he started showing me what came out of my mouth I was shock. He took his time to explained everything and the office is super clean. What I really love about this place is when they tell you that you have a cavity they actually take a photo that zoom into your teeth and show it to you. Im glad Dr. Hofkes spotted all the cavities in my mouth before it gets worse.
    Thank You for that awesome cleaning!!!
    My family and I will be back....

  •   AWESOME!  This office is amazing! New clean office that is state of the art. But the best part is Dr. Hofkes - he is very knowledgeable, caring, and YES - gentle.  I had a crown done which was completely painless. He explained the different crowns and it is the most beautiful tooth in my mouth. I made an appointment for my wife and two daughters, after my experience they are excited to see Dr Hofkes!

  •   I wanted to update my review, it has been a while since my work was done and I can't say how happy I am.  I wanted to share with everyone the possibilities of working with Dr Hofkes and his team through the photos of my before and after.  It has been a long journey but I am finally so happy with my smile.  Thank you!!!

  •   I moved to Seal Beach a few years ago from Michigan. Since the move, I've been so busy getting situated into the west coast that I've neglected finding a new dentist. Maybe I just used moving as an excuse to not find a dentist because I don't like going to one. But turns out, the reason I didn't like going to one was because my dentist back home was horrible. Sometimes you don't know that something is wrong until you've had something better to compare it to. In this case, I've compared it to Dr. Yin from center plaza dentistry and she has definitely set the bar. I found this place randomly because I like going to the bagel shop next door. I looked it up and saw that it had some good reviews. I walked over there with my bagel to check it out. The receptionist was so nice and Dr. Yin came out to introduce herself and give me a tour of the office. WOW- nicest dental office I've ever been to. Very modern but not pretentious is how I would describe it. Fast forward to my appointment date. She gave me a very thorough exam. She even checked my gum pockets before telling me that I had healthy gums but needed to focus on the back when flossing and brushing because pockets were a little deeper there. I also had two cavities which she took pictures of to show me and they were clear as day. My other dentist has never checked my gum pockets before but I was somehow told that I needed a deep cleaning. He never showed me X-rays and pictures and I was supposed to just take his word for it. Which I always did because I thought that was normal. Dr. Yin gave me a regular cleaning that made my teeth feel even cleaner than the deep cleanings that I had to pay a shit ton for. The fillings were done the following week. No pain and I watched Netflix during the procedure. They give you headphones to attach to the chair and you get to keep the headphones after your appointment. No wait time and free parking. I highly recommend this office! Best dental experience ever.

Online Appointment

  • Exam & Cleanings

    Great oral health starts here, with a dental exam. Based on this initial exam, your dentist will create your customized dental treatment plan, which will be a guide for you and your dental team going forward in order to give you a healthy mouth.

  • Whitening

    Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and getting regular cleanings at the dentist’s office. However, if you decide you would like to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, we offer several options to help make sure your smile is as bright as possible.

  • Fillings

    Dental fillings are a treatment option to help restore the function and appearance of a tooth that is damaged or decayed. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat a cavity. Having a tooth “filled” is a very common procedure and can be completed in one appointment at the office.

  • Crowns & Bridges

    A dental crown is a type of dental restoration and serves as a component in many different types of restorative treatments. Dental crowns are also known as “caps,” as they fit on top of existing teeth or over dental implants. Dental crowns are most often made of porcelain, a material that is both strong and non-porous (thus more resistant to staining like tooth enamel), and reflects light in much the same way as a natural tooth.

  • Root Canals

    Root canal treatment is a treatment option available to “save” a tooth that has sustained damage, inflammation, or infection in the pulp, deep inside the tooth. Put simply, the damaged internal sections are removed from your tooth and replaced with material to seal the tooth. In most cases a crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from further decay and damage.

  • Extractions

    A Tooth extraction, put simply, is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Dental extractions are most often performed because a tooth has sustained damage or decay, or cannot be saved by Root Canal treatment, or to prepare for the placement of a Dental Implant. Advanced gum disease may be another contributing factor in a tooth extraction.

  • Veneers

    A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth.

  • Dental Implants

    Dental implants are the closest possible alternative to actual tooth replacement. With proper care, maintenance, and regular checkup visits with your dentist, dental implants are designed to last for life.

  • Partials & Dentures

    Affordable Dentures are offered in a variety of denture styles that include full and partial dentures. Our experienced staff will help you find the best match for your needs.

  • Mandibular Advancement Devices

    Mandibular Advancement Devices for obstructive sleep apnea are often used as a substitute for CPAP or sleep apnea oral surgery. Sleep apnea mouth guards can also help prevent snoring by reducing airway turbulence. Snoring is usually an underlying symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.

    Mandibular Advancement Devices work by moving the jaw forward, which increases the size of the upper airway, thus reducing the air resistance that leads to sleep apnea and snoring.

    It is important that you visit a medical doctor to receive a proper diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea before seeking a mandibular advancement device.
