A small sample of Dr. LeSage's work.
View Dr. LeSage’s posterior work.
For RuthAnn, Dr. LeSage placed new crowns on the front two teeth plus six porcelain veneers and performed a gum lift.
“Dr. LeSage reviewed my treatment plan in very simple terms and reviewed fees prior to starting any treatment. The crown lengthening [gingival contouring] was painless and set up my smile for an ideal outcome. My two old porcelain to metal crowns were replaced with all-ceramic restorations and I had additionally other veneers done. My smile came out better than I ever could have imagined.”
Carl had an old crown on his front tooth. When he had it replaced, he decided to go ahead and get a new smile with porcelain veneers.
“I’ve had this old crown for many years and figured I would redo my smile. I had spaces between multiple teeth and wanted a whiter but masculine outcome. Dr LeSage created a smile that was natural, and blended well with my face and personality!”
Composite Bonding, Front 6 Teeth
“I was unhappy with my front teeth for years. Being from England, they were chipped, rotated, dark and discolored. Dr. LeSage directly placed composite on my front teeth, basically veneering them with multiple shades of composites. In a matter of hours, Dr. LeSage created a smile, a new look for me that makes me smile. He is a true artist and friend.”
Christian has recurrent decay around an old amalgam restoration on his upper right first molar. On the right, the amalgam and the decay have been removed and Dr. LeSage has restored the tooth with composite.
8 Porcelain Veneers
“I was referred to Dr. LeSage by my orthodontist after my 2 years of braces were complete. I had been to several other dentists who told me I would need every tooth in my mouth crowned. Dr. LeSage did a complete work-up and determined we could take a more conservative approach and adjust my bite and add composite to multiple posterior teeth ‘to hold and stabilize’ my teeth for now. He did eight porcelain veneers. Eleven years later I am still seeing him for routine check-ups and everything is intact and healthy. Dr. LeSage saved me from needing crowns.”
Full mouth Reconstruction with Porcelain Veneers Plus Crowns
“As a frequent public speaker, it’s a great comfort to have a place like the Institute to trust for the care and maintenance of my dental health. Dr. LeSage replaced the crowns on all my teeth. His reconstructive work for me brought together an amazing combination of scientific expertise, state-of-the-art technology, master craftsmanship, and artistry. I had no idea how profound a difference great-looking teeth with a perfectly aligned bite could make!”
-David Allen, International best-selling author, Getting Things Done: the Art of Stress-Free Productivity
Porcelain Veneers on Front 6 Teeth and Crowns Further Back
“After enduring several years of ineffective dental and orthodontia remedies to correct a poorly affixed crown, I feel lucky to have visited Dr. LeSage for a consultation that gave me clear options for treatment. I am beyond thrilled with the results that left my smile healthier and aesthetically perfected! Dr. LeSage has established a leading-edge practice with a wonderful staff that keeps my smile optimal.”
Composite Bonding of Upper 6 Front Teeth
“I have been a patient of Dr. LeSage’s since 2002 and for the first 14 years, I would travel from Japan to have him replace my old gold inlays with beautiful, natural CEREC Porcelain Onlays. He is a master dentist with the skills comparable to a black belt in martial arts. I had Invisalign first and then Dr. LeSage replaced some older composites and bonded to close the dark spaces between all my upper front teeth. Of course we bleached my teeth first. I am so happy with my smile. I would tell you he is the best dentist in the U.S., if not the best in the world.”
There are failing amalgam restorations on all three of these teeth. On the right, Dr. LeSage has restored them with composites.
Veneers on #’s 8 & 9 (front two teeth) and bonding on #7
“I had my tooth #8 bonded multiple times by several dentists and then was referred to Dr. LeSage to have veneers done. He actually wanted to bond it again, but I did not want to go through that again. I insisted he veneer my two front teeth, which he preferred to do only one—the broken-down one. After further consultation, he agreed to do both but also added then we should do #7 also. I refused. Dr. LeSage and his master ceramist fabricated two beautiful veneers for my two front teeth. After 3 months, I realized Dr. LeSage’s suggestion of doing the third tooth was best and so I then had him bond #7. These three restorations are exquisite and harmonized my smile. I couldn’t be happier.”
Composite Bonding – Incisal Edge of #10 (lateral incisor)
“I had chipped my left lateral incisor in an accident. The chipped tooth was sharp which irritated my lip and tongue. It was unsightly also. Dr. LeSage restored my tooth during a live patient demonstration as part of the UCLA Aesthetic Continuum. He had 25-30 dentists watching as he narrated and performed this exquisite transformation. It was amazing to listen to him teach and share his techniques with his colleagues at the UCLA dental school. I have since referred my mom and dad to him—he is that good.”
Invisalign and Porcelain Veneers on Front 4 Teeth
“I had just finished orthodontics, but my mother and I were not happy with my smile. My teeth and smile were tilted and my orthodontist could not even see it. Dr. LeSage recommended another course of Invisalign to upright my midline, which was tilting. With Invisalign we did a refinement to achieve even a more ideal result and then Dr. LeSage gave me the option of a gum lift and 2 or 4 veneers. I choose the gum lift to level my gingival tissues and then four minimal preparation veneers (less than 0.5mm, which I am told is the thickness of many people’s hair). The outcome has exceeded every goal and desire I envisioned for my smile. Thank you Dr. LeSage and team!!”
Porcelain Veneers on 3 Right Front Teeth, Implant and Implant Crowns on Left Front
“Brian and I were introduced by one of my groomsmen over 20 years ago and now he cares for my entire family. After years of sports injuries I needed extensive work to correct degeneration. Ultimately, I needed orthodontics, gum grafting and a new tooth to get the ideal result, all of which was well worth the time, effort and expense. The result was way beyond my expectations both cosmetically and functionally. With my new smile, and a tooth that can bite into apples and sandwiches with confidence, I am forever grateful.”
Veneers on 3 Front Teeth and Bonding on the Canines
“My dentist had bonded my three front teeth, but it would never last as long as we both hoped. My dentist, who was trained by Dr. LeSage at the UCLA Aesthetic Continuum, then referred me to Dr. LeSage to discuss my options. Dr. LeSage spent several appointments reviewing bonding verses veneers and discussing the advantages, disadvantages and costs of both options. I decided to do veneers as that was the right choice for me. Dr. LeSage cut off the old bonding and prepared the teeth only 0.5mm to create these lifelike ultra thin porcelain restorations on teeth #8, 9, 10 and bonded new tips to the canines. I couldn’t be happier with this minimally invasive approach that Dr. LeSage believes in.”
Porcelain Veneers and Onlays on All Upper Teeth, Bleach Lowers
Dr. Skylar Liatti was a first year dental student at Loma Linda University at the time and is now a practicing orthodontist.
“I would recommend Dr. LeSage to anyone, and I already have. He is truly an artist and a superb dentist. I would assure anyone that is not completely happy with their smile that when Dr. LeSage is done, they will be ecstatic with their results. I couldn’t have ever imagined that I would have the smile that I have today.”
Composite Bonding of Two Front Teeth
“I was referred to Dr. LeSage a little over 20 years ago by one of my best friends. Recently he bleached my teeth and then bonded with multiple shades of composite my two front teeth. I had large black triangles and with artistic flare he closed the spaces. No one can tell I have bonding on my two front teeth, they blend perfectly with my adjacent teeth and smile.”

“I am thrilled with the results and feel more confident about my smile since my dental restoration! I was treated with respect and kindness by Dr. LeSage and his very competent and friendly staff. Dr. LeSage made sure I understood what could be done to improve my smile and I felt secure to go forward, I believed in him from the get go. Dr. LeSage is one smart Dentist!”
Kenneth’s second molar, besides having an existing amalgam, is severely decayed. Rather than do a crown, Dr. LeSage restored the entire chewing surface with composite.
Porcelain Veneers and Onlays on All Upper Teeth, Bleach Lowers
“I was so impressed with the stunning results Dr. LeSage accomplished with my mom, I scheduled a consultation for myself! The object of my visit was to walk away with whiter teeth, but very quickly I realized I needed more than a whitening. Dr. LeSage reassured me it could be fantastic. I asked a lot of questions and Dr. LeSage patiently explained all of my options each step of the way. His guidance in helping me choose the healthy, yet the most esthetic way to go was invaluable. When I look at the before and after pictures I wonder why I ever hesitated!”

“My relationship with Dr. LeSage and the Beverly Hills Institute of Dental Esthetics began in 2008 with a consultation. I needed some restoration work and wanted to improve the aesthetics of my smile. I interviewed and consulted four dentists with comparable backgrounds in the field of cosmetic dentistry (Accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry). I selected Dr. LeSage based upon his approach, philosophy, and treatment plan. Dr LeSage is clearly passionate about his work. He is very serious and dedicated to the preservation of natural teeth and overall dental health. He utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to arrive at a diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan. He presented plans that demonstrated the ideal as well as alternative plans that gave me the option to do less work. He is an effective communicator and completely realistic about dental aesthetics. His plans were detailed and tailored for me. I’m from Omaha. Being an out-of-town patient required some intense scheduling and long office visits. He and his staff were always accommodating, kind and caring (and still are). Dr. LeSage is a methodical perfectionist. I appreciate his unparalleled dedication to the aesthetics as well as the function. He will tirelessly make adjustments and tweaks until it’s right! It isn’t just about how it looks, but the mechanics and functionality are equally important. I trust and respect his level of professionalism. My restoration is complete and the results are amazing. I continue to go to his office for follow-up appointments and general dental health. He and his staff continue to be professional, warm courteous and friendly. I thank them every time I smile.”
Composite Bonding of Front Tooth (#9)
“My dentist referred me to Dr. LeSage when I moved to So. CA. They both teach together in the UCLA Aesthetic Continuum. I wanted my front tooth bonded as it was dissimilar to my other central incisor—positioned back, darker and non-symmetrical. Dr. LeSage recommended Invisalign to correct my esthetic issues, but I wanted something immediate. Dr. LeSage recommended bleaching to start and than by adding ONLY and sculpting composite created a central incisor that mirrored the other. Simply amazing, painless and it has lasted six years thus far with no problems. I couldn’t be happier.”
Composite Bonding of Edges of Lower Incisors
“My lower teeth were worn and chipped from years of grinding. I had seen several dentists who wanted to crown or veneer my teeth. I was hoping they could be bonded and my good friend referred me to Dr. LeSage. He did a comprehensive exam and evaluation and reviewed with me the pros and cons of composite which is all additive verses veneers where he would have to remove tooth structure. He stated he would never do a crown in this scenario—that was too aggressive. In slightly over an hour, Dr. LeSage layered three shades of composite onto my four lower incisors to create a natural translucency and color to my newly restored edges. He is a true artist.”
Implant Replacing One Front Tooth and Bonding on the Other
“I moved to So. CA and was referred to Dr. LeSage to manage a tooth that was undergoing root resorption. He and his team placed an implant and used a prototype over 5-7 months to develop the tissue around the implant perfectly. Dr. LeSage wanting a perfect result, bonded the adjacent tooth so both centrals would be symmetric and have nice pink gum tissues. Have been pleased with the results for the past 17 years.”
