Experience is clearly an important factor in determining your choice of cosmetic dentists. Dr. Hartley has bonded over 25,000 porcelain restorations with impressive results since establishing his practice in 1986. The Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry was the first practice to specialize in cosmetic dentistry in Northern California. His practice is limited to cosmetic dental procedures.
Dr. Joseph Field is one of a handful of general dentists licensed in California to administer IV sedation for dental procedures. He specializes in dental implants, teeth in a day, and Invisalign. Dr. Field received his Fellowship award from the Academy of General Dentistry, a professional association of more than 37,000 general dentists.
Our patients come from all over the United States and from as far away as Europe and Asia. We receive referrals from patients, friends, physicians and other dentists. Dr. Hartley has been voted Top Doctor in cosmetic dentistry by his peers as published in San Jose Magazine. NBCs Today Show has featured his work on a recent segment titled "Turning Back the Clock, Rejuvenating your Smile." His cosmetic dentistry has been published in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, and models who are cosmetic patients have been seen in magazine and newspaper advertising.
Your cosmetic dentist's natural artistic talent is the defining factor in determining how nice your new teeth and smile will be. When making porcelain veneers, most cosmetic dentists allow the laboratory ceramist to determine critical aesthetic proportions such as tooth shape, angle, width, length and arrangement. Dr. Hartley is one of a handful of cosmetic dentists worldwide who take responsibility for determining all of these critical aesthetic factors by creating a mock-up on the patient's own teeth. This process which Dr. Hartley has developed is called the Bioesthetic Smile Design, and it allows the patient to "preview" the final result. A resin copy of the prototype is then used as a temporary veneer, which further allows the patient to evaluate the aesthetics of the new smile at home, and live with it on a trial basis. Finally, the lab receives a model of the prototype and then faithfully reproduces the defined aesthetic proportions for the new veneers, thereby eliminating any guesswork on their part.
Dr. Hartley has portfolios of hundreds of his own cases for you to look at to give you confidence in the truly amazing results that have been achieved. Many dentists have generic photo albums that show cosmetic cases that are not their own. Our before and after gallery is a true test of the skills of the PCCD cosmetic dentists.
We have made it a priority to keep the cost fair and appropriate. Different treatment options are always presented, giving patients a financial range to choose from which fits their budget. Our fees are significantly more affordable than similarly qualified centers in New York, Beverly Hills, or San Francisco.

At the Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, we believe in pampering our patients. Our state of the art dental facility is comfortable, modern, inviting, and artfully decorated in warm soothing colors.
As an office that caters to adult comfort, all of the treatment rooms are private, enclosed by glass doors. The glass doors block out all of the sounds of the dental office you don't like to hear, and ensure your conversations and treatment are private, not being overheard by someone on the other side of a partition. The glass door has the double advantage of presenting the room with an "open" feel, and helps to make for a stress-free and comfortable private experience.
Aromatherapy candles burn throughout the office set against the background sounds of water fountain. During treatment, relax in a back massaging dental chair while listening to a CD, watching tv or a movie. Warm neck pillows further aid in your total comfort. After dipping your hands into a soothing paraffin bath, we wrap you in a warm blanket to complete your feeling of well-being.
When your treatment is completed, warm lemon scented towels are given to freshen your hands and face.
At the Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to be an eco-friendly office. Here are some of the ways our office is different from other dental offices:
For many years I was self conscious about my smile. My front teeth were dark and had old caps & fillings which kept me from smiling. As the owner and executive chef of a restaurant, I felt the need to improve my smile & renew my self-confidence. The results are fantastic and I love my new teeth. Not a single day passes without me receiving compliments about my beautiful smile.
- Tammy H., Executive(Chef/Restaurateur)
Thank you very much for not only a new smile, but one that finally reflects the sheer happiness I feel inside. I am genuinely grateful and can not tell you how this alteration to my physical appearance has dramatically improved my confidence and general self-esteem.
- Ann Marie M.(Newspaper Editor)
Because I am on camera everyday, my smile is so important. Dr. Hartley and his wonderful staff has made it beautiful, white and healthy. And the best part - no pain and no anxiety. Going to Dr. Hartley was a pleasant experience. Did you ever think you would hear that about going to a dentist? I would recommend Dr. Hartley to anyone.
- Lisa Guerrero (TV Journalist for Inside Edition)
I have never liked the look of my teeth. The spaces between my teeth have always bothered me. I found Dr. Hartley while doing research on the internet and went to him to find out what my options were. He gave me new porcelain veneers and closed the spaces between my teeth. Now, I feel more confident about my smile.
- Anthony B. (Student)
The quality of Dr. Bruce Hartley's work is outstanding!
My teeth and my smile have never looked better.
I would recommend Dr. Hartley for people needing cosmetic dentistry.

- Jenny F.(Marketing Manager)
Dr. Hartley promised me he would give me a million dollar smile and the results are fabulous! Dr. Hartley is much more than a dentist - he is a brilliant cosmetic artist. He has created a first-class team in a high end spa-like environment. If you are looking for the best Hollywood smile, I highly recommend Dr. Hartley. Thank you for my beautiful smile.
- Michelle Rose(Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley Operating Board Member)
Thank you, Dr. Hartley and staff for making my cosmetic dentistry experience outstanding. Before visiting Dr. Hartley, I was self conscious of my teeth and hardly smiled at new people or in pictures. Now I have a brilliant smile and my self confidence has been boosted! I would recommend the Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry and Dr. Hartley to anyone.
- Mike S.(Business Owner)
My experience with Dr. Hartley and his amazing staff changed my life!!! I love my new smile and all the wonderful compliments I have received. Dr. Hartley is warm, friendly, sympathetic, sincere, and a complete professional. His work (or should I say Art) is the best of the best. Well worth every penny. He made sure I was pain-free and comfortable through each and every procedure in addition to always checking in with me about any concerns or questions that I may have. He is a complete perfectionist and in his line of work that is a good thing. He made sure that I was completely happy my new teeth.
- Halee Z.(Stay at home mom)
When I searching for a Cosmetic Dentist, I had plenty of recommendations for Dentists in and around San Francisco. But then I saw Dr. Hartley’s website with the before and after pictures and I was amazed... My only concern going into the procedure was that my extremely high expectations wouldn’t be met! I need not have worried. The results are stunning and I haven’t stopped smiling since. So when you’re looking for the very best cosmetic dentist in San Francisco, go to Dr. Hartley in Los Altos!
- Olga H.(Realtor)
I came Dr. Hartley's office after doing extensive research online. I had old crowns on my front teeth, old amalgam fillings on my molars that have been worn down. I was also never comfortable with my smile. I've always had a dental phobia since childhood and have avoided seeing a dentist... Dr. Hartley listened to all my concerns and issues. He presented different options and reviewed them with me. I ended up doing a full mouth reconstruction with Dr. Hartley and I am very happy with the results. It was the best decision I ever made.
- Dan A.(Engineer)
All I can say is I have not stopped smiling. Truly! And the best thing is these veneers look like and feel like they belong to me. The whole procedure included restructuring, filling gaps, repositioning teeth,and improving my bite. And Dr. Hartley besides practicing superiority in cosmetic dentistry is exceptionally kind, courteous, and caring towards his patients. In summary Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry makes us smile.
- Joycelyn C.
There is nothing more important than ones smile, it is the essence of self image and personal...power. Cost should not be the issue, only results. One will never find better than with Dr. Hartley; the man is a techical genious and a true artist! I actually feel honored that I had the good fortune to locate him. The 4 hour investment of travel time EACH trip to complete the process was minor compared to the amazing transforamtion he made in my smile. As somewhat of a public figure and having done my research VERY well prior to making the decision to move forward, I would say, "Wise is he who learns from experience, however twice as wise is he who learns from another's". My experience was to deal with a professional organization, having no discomfortant nor inconvenience and to leave with not one regret for the cost. How often does one have the opportunity share a totally positve transaction with only the highest of praise? Rarely... and why? Because Dr. Hartley is... a rare find.
Much love to Dr. Hartley and his awesome staff. Going into this I wondered if I could ever really have a perfect smile. Not only did they explain everything up front, they also treated me in a way that calmed my concerns. This has truly been a confidence boost, and a defining moment in my life.
Dr. Hartley is an amazing artist! Within just four visits, he gave me an amazing smile I imagined never having within such a short period of time! My veneers will definitely shine in my wedding photos this June and I cannot wait to keep smiling for each pose! It's no wonder why his web site was the first to show when I was searching "porcelain veneers" on Yahoo--he's clearly the best and I'm glad I made the call to consult with him. His office staff are amazing and always made sure you were comfortable and had everything you needed! I would highly recommend Dr. Hartley to anyone out there wanting to get their Hollywood smile just like I did!
I went to a couple cosmetic dentists in the area and none of them made me feel as welcome aas Dr. Hartley and his staff. He really paid attention to what I wanted and then did a phenomenal job to give me exactly what I had envisioned. Dr. Hartley's staff was also outstanding into getting me everything I needed as well as accomidating for me schedule. I will never go anywhere else for any type of dentistry. Even if i'm paying more, it's worth the service.
I absolutely loved my experience at Dr. Hartleys office. I have always hated dentists, but after meeting Dr. Hartley and his staff my opinion has drastically changed. I got my top ten teeth done with veneers and I can't express how happy I am with the experience of getting them and how they look. I love that no one can tell that they are fake and when I show them the before and after pictures they are floored. I was always ashamed of my teeth. I had braces and everything done when I was younger to prevent my teeth from being bad. My last dentist that I had actually laughed at me because of how bad my teeth were. I had never felt more low in my life. I had cried many times because of how my teeth were. The day I talked to Dr. Hartley's staff I felt better already and I hadn't even met them! I drive and hour and a half each way to see them and it is so worth it. They asked constantly how I was doing and if I needed anything. The heated chair was great! I can't stand the sound of drills so I listened to my ipod the whole time. Anytime I needed anything for pain it was given to me right away. I was never in pain during the procedure. At first I thought that this procedure was expensive but after seeing the end result it is worth every cent!
I would Have to say that Dr. Hartley has the best set of dental skills i have seen. His motivation and drive to create that perfect smile is remarkable. He has been in the business for over 22 years and knows a great deal on how to create a perfect smile. I just left his office with completing a full set of Veneers, and i would have to say, "Watch out Brad Pitt", I'm looking pretty darn good with a full set of White Straight teeth.
I could not have asked for a positive and professional experience! At 43 I decided to have my teeth straightened using braces. When the braces were removed I still had not achieved the beautiful teeth and smile I was hoping for. One visit to Dr. Hartley and his professional staff put me at ease and convinced me whole-heartedly that veneers were the answer I was looking for. My smile is outstanding. Rarely a day goes by that I do not receive a compliment! One of the very best decisions I've ever made was to put myself in the trustworthy and capable hands of Dr. Hartley and his staff. When I was wearing my temporary veneers I cracked one - and that's not easy to do! Dr. Hartley came into the office on a Saturday and repaired it. He was upbeat and so nice about the emergency visit, I really was stunned. Another great things about the office is that his assistant has been with him 23 years and most of the staff has been there very long term. That says a LOT about Dr. Hartley and the way he treats his staff and patients. Thanks Angie and Dr. Hartley - I wish I had done this 10 years ago!
I will never put off going to the dentist again! I recently saw Dr. Field to have a cavity filled. I was extremely anxious about it, but it turned out I didn't need to be-it was a very pleasant experience. Dr. Field took the time to answer my many questions, explaining everything that he would be doing in great detail. He was also very quick and efficient and I was very surprised at how soon the appointment ended. He did an amazing job of making sure I was numb before he started and I did not feel any pain. I was also very impressed with the front desk staff. They were all extremely kind, friendly and helpful. The office itself is brand new and looks like a 5 Star hotel! The whole experience was great!
I can't say enough about the "chair-side manner" of Dr. Field and his colleagues. Prior to having Dr. Field and the staff at PCCD care for my dental health, the mere thought of dental work made me anxious. Dr. Field and his staff have changed the way that I feel about going to the dentist. Everything at Dr. Field's office is "calming" -- from the warm greeting I receive from the professional office staff to the gentle conversation Dr. Field has with me prior to the procedure. He has a kind and comforting way to make sure his patients are informed and relaxed about the work he is about to perform - and he frequently checks on my comfort level during the procedure. The extra measures that Dr. Field and the staff at PCCD take to ensure patient satisfaction are simply a bonus. Besides executing the insurance paperwork and emailing appointment reminders, they also provide sweet extras such as a massage chair, headphones, parafin wax treatment and dark glasses (which are my personal favorite!) Even the soap in the restroom is fragrant and aroma-therapeutic! The overall "experience" almost makes me forget that I am at the dentist. More importantly, Dr. Field's work standards are high and his quality of work is excellent!
Excellent dental experiences- proper diagnosis, well crafted veneers and crowns, super attention to detail and follow up. After 50+ yrs of dental treatment, Dr Field ranks alongside the very best.
I went to see Dr. Field to have a what they call a cerec crown done. It was a great experience! To start with his office is beautiful, very modern and relaxing. It was like walking into a health spa. I even got a paraffin hand wax while I was there. I was pretty nervous about the procedure but Dr. Field was very calming and gentle. He explained every step to me and was always checking to make sure I was doing well. The final result exceeded my expectations. In addition to the whole thing being done in one appointment (I never had to have a temporary) the looks were prefect. I had an old silver filling there that broke and to now have a gorgeous porcelain tooth there makes me much less self conscious. I would highly recommend Dr. Field to anyone. As far as I'm concerned I will be going to Dr. Field for the rest of my life.
Excellent service. Fine cosmetic and health results of Dr Field's treatment. State of the art equipment and technique.
I went to Dr. Field for a general checkup. He was very thorough in the exam and also did my cleaning. He was good at explaining what he was doing and explaining my treatment options. He found some decay that he recommended be filled in, but said it wasn't an immediate concern and was something I could schedule for a later time. I went in their old facility and am excited to see their new office on my next visit.
He is very professional,gentle yet thorough. He took time to make me feel comfortable and special. He answered all my questions and presented options for treatment in a way I understood. I had complete confidence in him and would highly recommend. The office is like a spa, hand treatments, massage chair and the option of sedation. All the staff were very warm and friendly.
An overall great experience, the staff are friendly and helpful and Dr. Field does a wonderful job of making you feel comfortable. I always knew what was happening and felt like all my options were presented well. The building they are in looked new and it certainly is more of a spa experience than a dental experience
