About Our Practice
State-of-the-art dental care in a friendly, warm environment
Since 1991, Dr. Vahik Paul Meserkhani has been helping patients in Southern California restore their smiles and mouths to a state of health, comfort and beauty. He is a prosthodontist. That is, he is a specialist in repairing, restoring and replacing teeth.
Dr. Meserkhani has formed a team of highly trained and experienced doctors who can competently treat all of your dental needs!
The team can address cosmetic dental issues, as well as specific issues, including implant surgery, periodontics and orthodontics.
Training and experience you can trust
Dr. Vahik Paul Meserkhani—top prosthodontist and implantologist
In addition to his three years extra training as a prosthodontist, Dr. Meserkhani is also a skilled implant dentist. He has completed an extensive post-graduate education in implantology and has been awarded the status of Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology. This prestigious award is the most important and difficult certification in the field on implant dentistry, and has only been awarded to roughly 400 dentists in the United States.
With this vast experience and knowledge, Dr. Meserkhani has become a sought-after lecturer and trainer of other dentists. Meserkhani lectures on oral implantology, prosthodontics and collaborative dentistry both nationally and around the world.
Our practice—a team of top professionals
Over the years Dr. Meserkhani has created a team of dentists to provide you with expert care for any restorative or cosmetic issue you have. He sets the treatment path and manages your treatment from beginning to end. Any specialist treatment you need is provided for you right here in our comfortable office. Multiple treatments can be accomplished at the same time, measurably reducing your time in the chair.
Dr. Meserkhani is a leading dentist in collaborative dentistry, a newer field of dentistry that brings together specialist dentists under the management of one dentist. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Meserkhani has training in overseeing the restoration of teeth and a mouth. He has found that collaborative dentistry obtains better results for his patients.
As well as Dr. Meserkhani, our dental team includes Derek Alexanians, General, Cosmetic and Sedation Dentist and Dr.Yarian, medical doctor and our anesthesiologist.
Our comprehensive dental services—restore your smile to health and beauty
We offer comprehensive dental services and, with our in-house, skilled specialists, we are uniquely equipped to restore any smile.
After a thorough examination and diagnosis of your case, Dr. Meserkhani will lay out a detail custom treatment plan to get your mouth back to full health and aesthetics.
Procedures that may be part of your treatment plan include:
- Dental Implants for missing teeth or teeth needing extraction
- Full-mouth rehabilitation to return your mouth to a natural state of function
- Periodontics for persistent gum disease
- Orthodontics to straighten teeth and to align your bite (how your teeth come together) so that you can chew comfortably and eliminate or avoid TMJ (jaw-joint) pain and headaches
- Sedation for longer surgical procedures or for the anxious patient
- Smile makeovers with porcelain veneers and crowns for teeth that are discolored, misshapen, gapped or mildly crooked
- Invisalign™ clear teeth straightening
- Cosmetic gum surgery for a gummy smile or an uneven gum line.
- Minimally invasive or non-invasive gum grafting for receding gums
- Teeth whitening to rejuvenate your smile
Advancements in technology have made treatment more efficient, less invasive and more comfortable. Our doctors use state-of-the-art equipment for planning and treatment, including a cone beam dental CT scanner, which takes 3D images, and allows Dr. Meserkhani to plan treatments ahead of time.
Treating the complex case and dental work complications
Dr. Meserkhani and our doctors are well known for their success in treating patients with multiple dental problems. They also repair dental work by other dentists that is aging or has failed. Dental implants or restorations (crowns, veneers, bridges) that have been made with poor materials or have been poorly placed can cause issues difficult to resolve. Dr. Meserkhani is very experienced and skilled in repairing aging or failed dental work. Learn more about dental restoration.
