SERVICES WE OFFER

Cosmetic Dentistry

Bonding
Bonding is a procedure that can effectively restore the beauty of your teeth. A simple procedure, bonding can repair minor dental flaws, such as surface decay or small chips in the teeth.
Bridges
A dental bridge is a permanent dental appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. When in place, a bridge can be a natural addition to your smile and enhance the function of your mouth.
CEREC Same-day Crowns and Veneers
CEREC technology is an amazing dental advancement that allows our dentist to create a custom crown or veneer in just one appointment at our Lakewood, CA dental practice. With CEREC technology, we have the ability to design, scan, and mill your custom crown or veneer in just two hours.
Dentures
Dentures are one option for those who are missing teeth. Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and help to keep the mouth in good form. For more information on dentures or your options for replacing missing teeth, please give our Lakewood, CA dental practice a call soon.
Veneers
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that the dentist bonds to the front of the teeth. Veneers are a great way to quickly achieve a radiant smile. When in place, veneers can correct misshapen or crooked teeth, teeth that are severely stained, large gaps between the teeth, or wear/chips on the teeth. Call iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood, CA today to learn more about veneers and cosmetic dentistry.
Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are perhaps the most effective solution for those who are missing one or more teeth. Implants act as the replacement of both the root and crown of the tooth and can restore stability, resilience, and strength to the mouth and jaw. The dental implant process can take several months and multiple appointments at our Lakewood, CA dental practice to complete. Once in place, your dental implants will give you the beautiful, functional smile that you’ve been missing. Call us today to schedule your implant consultation with our dentist and begin learning more about implant dentistry.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are placed by the dentist to repair teeth with extensive fracture or decay. The inlay or onlay will act as the missing part of the tooth, effectively becoming a natural addition to the tooth. For more information on inlays or onlays, call iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood, CA today.
One Hour Teeth Whitening
To help improve the brilliance of your smile, our dentist can provide one-hour teeth whitening. Using a highly-concentrated bleaching gel, we can effectively lighten your teeth several shades. Professional one-hour whitening at our office is much more effective than unreliable over-the-counter bleaching products. Call iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood, CA today to schedule your whitening consultation with our dentist.
Porcelain Non-Metal Crowns
Teeth that have a significant amount of decay or damage may require one of our porcelain, non-metal crowns. A crown (or cap) is a restoration that completely encases a tooth, effectively restoring it to an ideal size and shape. Crowns are also often placed on teeth that have received root canal therapy. If you are interested in learning more about porcelain crowns, restorative dentistry, or aesthetic dentistry, please call our Lakewood, CA dental practice.
Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings (or composites) are placed by the dentist when a tooth has minor fractures or decay. The color of the filling can be matched closely to the color of your natural teeth for an aesthetic result. Call iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood, CA today to learn more about your aesthetic treatment options.

General/Restorative Dentistry

Emergency Dentistry
At iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood, CA, we understand that dental emergencies happen and that they are never convenient for you, which is why we provide emergency care. When something unexpected happens, it’s important not to panic. Just call or visit our office as soon as possible and we will do our best to see you as soon as possible and relieve your pain.
Tooth Extractions
A tooth extraction is performed when a tooth has extreme damage or decay. Extractions are often our last resort when attempting to maintain your oral health. If another treatment can be performed to restore the health of your mouth, the dentist will recommend that treatment instead. If you or your child is suffering from pain in or near the teeth, please call our Lakewood, CA dental practice soon to schedule your appointment with the dentist soon.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
To help our nervous patients relax, we can provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation. Nitrous oxide is a form of sedation dentistry that is quick, effective, safe, and convenient. While under nitrous oxide sedation, you will remain conscious but less sensitive to treatment. For more information on sedation dentistry or your other options for increasing the comfort of your visit, give our Lakewood, CA dental practice a call soon!
Periodontal Care
Our dentist and dental team are not only concerned with the health of your teeth, but also of the health of the bones, tissues, and gums that support the teeth. To help protect you against periodontal (gum) disease, we provide deep cleaning services, including scaling and root planing. If necessary, we can also use local antibiotics to reduce gum pockets caused by periodontal disease. To learn more about periodontal disease or your treatment options, please call our Lakewood, CA dental office soon!
Veneers
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that the dentist bonds to the front of the teeth. Veneers are a great way to quickly achieve a radiant smile. When in place, veneers can correct misshapen or crooked teeth, teeth that are severely stained, large gaps between the teeth, or wear/chips on the teeth. Call iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood, CA today to learn more about veneers and cosmetic dentistry.
Night and Athletic Mouth Guards
To help protect your teeth against preventable damage, our dentist can create custom night and athletic mouth guards. Athletic mouth guards are used to protect your teeth from sports injury or accident while night guards can protect the teeth from night-time teeth grinding (bruxism). To schedule your next check-up with the dentist and learn more about preventive dentistry, please call our Lakewood, CA dental practice soon.
Pediatric Dentistry
iSmile Dental Care is proud to take care of the smiles of your children. When you and your children visit our kid-friendly dental practice, you children will learn effective preventive dental techniques from our friendly dentist and team. When children learn to add these techniques to their daily routines, they are creating a routine that will ensure they have healthy, beautiful teeth for the rest of their lives. If you would like to learn more about pediatric dentistry, or to schedule your child’s next dental appointment, please contact our Lakewood, CA dental practice today!
Root Canal Therapy
If the nerve or pulp of the tooth becomes infected or starts to decay, our dentist may perform root canal therapy to restore the tooth. During the procedure, the dentist will remove the infected tissue and, in most cases, place a porcelain crown over the tooth for protection. We invite you to call our Lakewood, CA dental practice soon to learn more about restorative dentistry and how root canal therapy can improve your oral health and function today.

Meet the Dentist

Dr. Faye G. Uy

Doctor of Dental Surgery
Your smile is important to me. That’s why I became a dentist! My staff and I work hard to create a fun and friendly atmosphere at iSmile Dental Care so that you and your family will not only feel comfortable but will enjoy coming to see us.

I obtained my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from University of the Philippines in 1996. After that, I completed a postgraduate residency program in Oral Surgery at the Philippine General Hospital. In 1998, I became a full time dentist with a private practice. In 2006, I moved to Southern California where I worked in both corporate and private dental settings. On August 8, 2010 I opened iSmile Dental Care in Lakewood. It was a very proud moment for me!

Since that time, I have been privileged to serve the wonderful community of Lakewood and its neighboring cities. I am a big believer in minimally invasive dentistry and I strive to bring the very best dental care to my patients. This includes using state of the art technology and continually developing my skills and knowledge. I regularly attend dental seminars and workshops around the country to make sure I know what the latest developments are in the industry to serve my patients better.

When I am not in the office I really enjoy cooking and spending time with my family and friends.

My team and I look forward to seeing you and brightening your smile soon!

I’ve been going to Ismile for two years now, I love them very modern and up to date facility. Friendly staff who are very knowledgeable and make sure you are satisfied with your consultation. Today I decided to try the zoom whitening service they offer and my results are awesome! I highly recommend them to friend and family. Anytime your a patient, you don’t have to be bored and stare at the ceiling because they have a tv right over you and you get to chose what type of movie or show you want to enjoy while they work on ur smile.

Been a part of Dr Faye’s extended family for 5+ years. Outstanding service. First impression is everything… Clean office and greeted with friendly office staff. Never waiting more than a few minutes. Dr. Faye is so nice with great bedside manner. She always makes you feel important. She always takes the time to speak with me to make sure I understand the dental plan & everything
that’s happening. She and her staff are very knowledgeable and well versed on latest technology in the industry.  Me and my 3 daughters come here and are ALWAYS pleased. From the greeting at the door to the hygienist to Dr. Faye, you will get EXCELLENT service and treated like family.
