Cosmetic Dentistry Beverly Hills

Is a branch of dentistry which focuses on creating the best aesthetic result in a person’s overall smile. A great smile can boost your confidence and make a positive first impression to people you meet. Not everyone is born with a perfect smile, so cosmetic dentistry is the best solution for someone who wants to achieve a healthier and more natural looking smile. Dentists who specializes in cosmetic dentistry perform procedures which are commonplace in general dentistry, but utilize more natural-looking and aesthetic materials, in order to create the best aesthetic result. A cosmetic dentist is like an artist!

Fundamentally, cosmetic dentistry deals with removing tissues and adding materials to tooth structures with a certain outcome in mind. Additionally, changing properties of your teeth like shade, color, or texture. Moreover, it also includes aligning teeth properly, as well as a patient’s bite. Some cosmetic dentistry procedures are fairly simple and routine, other cases can be more complex and provide restorative benefits. Each patient and each case is different.

You can get the smile of your dreams by just visiting us at Beverly Hills Dentistry. We use all our skills and knowledge, in order to create the best appearance of your teeth and overall smile. We do the best we can to make our patients feel special and confident about their smile.

Some of our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Teeth whitening

Many people have discoloration caused by cigarettes, tea, coffee or medication. Your teeth also darken naturally because of age. At our office, we can provide you with the best teeth whitening systems, which brighten your smile. Bleaching can be done at our office, or you can do it yourself at home. Treatment begins with making a custom mouthpiece, which would be used with whitening material exposed to your teeth. Usually, whitening at home takes two to four weeks. The time needed is based on your desired shade. Teeth whitening at the office takes between 45 minutes to one hour visit. We will also give you some tips and tricks, to keep your smile as white as possible.

Dental bonding

This treatment is perfect for someone who wants to improve the color, size, and shape of their teeth and make it look as natural as possible. The procedure is based on bonding a composite resin to the tooth. When it is shaped and polished, it looks as natural as your own teeth. With this treatment, you can even fill the small gaps between your teeth. The procedure uses tooth-colored material to change the color of your teeth or to fill the gaps. On the other hand, bonding is more prone to chipping or staining compared to other restorations.

Dental fillings

If cavities are left untreated, it may cause infection and permanent damage, which can weaken your tooth. While other doctors may restore your tooth with amalgam fillings, the cosmetic dentist offers you composite fillings, which look unnoticeable and natural.

Inlays and onlays

A treatment option for mild or moderate tooth decay when there aren’t enough tooth tissues to support the dental filling. So the laboratory makes an indirect composite resin restoration, which is cemented to the tooth. They restore the shape and strengthen the tooth. What’s more, it prevents further decay and deterioration. Inlays and onlays provide very good aesthetic results.

Dental crowns

A dental crown is an artificial restoration, which looks like a natural tooth. A cosmetic dentist may be able to choose a better tooth profile and color shade that would match with other teeth and overall smile. The restoration covers the tooth from the outside completely. Moreover, the crown can be made to cover the implant too. When other procedures are not effective, the crown option is generally used due to their cost. What is more, crowns most usually last the longest, compared to other restorations. But on the other hand, they are most time-consuming.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin porcelain restoration which is attached to the vestibular surface of the tooth. It is the best option for someone who has unsuccessful teeth whitening or whitening-resistant stains. Veneers can hide small cracks or other imperfections which are usually visible. This treatment is a great alternative to crowns. Your dentist will take an impression. Then they will create a custom veneer and cement it to the surface of your tooth. Because veneers are fabricated in the laboratory, you may need more than one visit to the office. In comparison to dental bonding, veneers can last longer and are less likely to change the color of restoration than bonding.

Contouring and reshaping

These procedures are performed in order to correct chipped, crooked, overlapped or irregularly shaped teeth.They can be performed in one session. With this treatment, you can change position, shape, and length of the teeth. These treatments can even correct small problems with your bite. Most treatments involve a combination of tooth reshaping and bonding. It is a perfect treatment for someone, who has healthy teeth but wants delicate changes to their smile.

There is a wide range of other procedures we specialize in, so feel free to contact us to learn more about treatment options, that we can offer for you. You can make a step forward towards the smile of your dreams!
