About us

Initial in-person

During this in-person visit, Dr. Im will take photographs and X-rays, and directly sculpt your new smile onto your teeth with temporary material.  This sculpting procedure will take less than 30 minutes as a sneak preview so that you can clearly see the results in advance.  Dr. Im has developed this unique technique of his own in order to “show you” instead of “tell you.”

This can be a great chance for you to see the work of Dr. Im’s true artistic hands and see his detailed approach towards your best looking smile.  This will defog all potential uncertainties and worries about the treatment outcome and build trust in how he can handle your case. 

Dr. Im will listen to all your concerns and desires prior to this “smile test drive” and make sure everyone is on the same page.  You can bring any photos to help him understand your desired goal.  He will continuously adjust and re-sculpt your new smile until mutually satisfied.  

Only a handful of dentists can perform these kind of procedures comfortably.  This requires a complete understanding of the tooth and facial anatomy, capable/artistic hands, and a keen eye to be able to see and make connections that create harmony between all the facial and tooth structures.  These skills are critical in a procedure where the most minute of deviations can make someone’s smile look “Hollywood” as opposed to “bulky.” 

“My goal is to help people attain the most charismatic and enchanting smile possible in the most non-invasive way.”
