Welcome to our friendly, spa-like dental office in Long Beach
Dr. Steven Pakiz has been providing knowledgeable, high-tech dentistry to the residents of Long Beach since 1993. We offer a wide variety of dental services for the entire family in a friendly, aesthetic and relaxing environment.
Dr. Pakiz believes very strongly in preventive dentistry, and his goal is to help his patients keep their teeth healthy for life. He really listens to his patients’ needs and concerns, and is known for his personable and friendly chairside manner. If you come to us for cosmetic or restorative work, he will explain your treatment options in detail and educate you on the pro’s and con’s of each option.
Relax in our comfortable, aesthetic office
We have created a calming, spa-like atmosphere for our patients in our comfortable, modern office. When you walk in you are greeted with the sounds of soothing music and the subtle scents from aromatherapy candles handmade by our staff.
Our aesthetic décor has been designed to help you relax and feel at ease during your visits. During procedures, we provide blankets and heated neck pillows for added comfort in the treatment chair.
Our knowledgeable and attentive staff will make sure you are comfortable and well-taken care of during your office visit. We will do our best to accommodate you in anything you might need to make your visit more pleasant.
We really listen to you
Dr. Pakiz always takes the time to listen to patients and address any questions or concerns they may have. He relates well to patients and they find him easy to talk to.
He understands that dental procedures and terminology can be confusing, and this can make patients more anxious about receiving treatment. He will walk you through your procedures ahead of time, using terms that you can understand. It is important to him that you know what to expect, so that you can feel more comfortable about your treatment.
Beautiful, natural-looking Smile Makeovers
Dr. Pakiz is a cosmetic dentist with many years of experience and additional training in aesthetic dentistry. He has a good artistic eye and plans his smile makeovers to look aesthetic and natural. He tries to be as conservative as possible, maintaining as much of your natural tooth structure as possible while achieving the results you are looking for.
To further ensure long-term success of your smile makeover, Dr. Pakiz makes sure that your bite is well-aligned before any treatment begins. This not only enhances the appearance of your smile, it also improves function and avoids future wearing away of your teeth and any restorations you may have placed as part of your cosmetic treatment.
We use state-of-the-art technology in order to increase patient comfort, reduce time in the chair, and to generally be able to provide more accurate and successful dentistry.
Our iTero digital scanner captures the contours of the teeth and gums in just a few minutes, providing detailed 3D impressions that are both more accurate and more comfortable than traditional goopy tray impressions. Dr. Pakiz uses the 3D images to plan Invisalign treatment and to design crowns, bridges and veneers.
Low-radiation digital X-rays give us a detailed view of the structures of your mouth, while our intraoral cameras provide full-color images of the inside of your mouth. In recent years, laser dentistry has made innovations in gentle, non-surgical treatments; we use a gentle dental laser to provide comfortable, effective treatment for even severe stage of gum disease.
