Want an Amazing Smile? How an LA Cosmetic Dentist Can Improve Your SmileJanuary 2, 2018
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all have a stunning Hollywood smile?
In decades past, cosmetic dental procedures were out of reach financially for many people.
Thankfully these days, cosmetic procedures in LA are becoming more affordable. This means more people are able to turn their not-so-perfect smile into one they’re proud to show off.
Is this something you’d like to invest in?
5 Ways Your Cosmetic Dentist Can Improve Your Smile
If you’re interested in improving your smile, the first thing you should investigate is which procedures fit your needs the best.
These are some of the LA cosmetic procedures we offer at LA Dental Town.
In addition to wanting whiter teeth, most of us want straighter teeth, too.
However, the thought of having to wear metal braces for years is simply not appealing to the vast majority of people.
Thankfully, there’s another options: Invisalign.
These braces are clear, removable, irritation-free, and comfortable for those seeking a straight smile.
2. Dental Veneers
If you have intrinsic (internal) staining which can’t be treated with bleach, you might want to consider dental veneers.
Veneers are a lightweight porcelain shell which fit over the front of the anterior teeth. A little bit of the patient’s enamel is shaved away to make room for the veneers.
Dental veneers can improve the look of stained, chipped, and even crooked teeth.
For those who can’t afford traditional veneers, another option is Lumineers.
Lumineers are a thinner veneer and don’t require the removal of any enamel. After your custom veneers are fabricated, we then bond them to your enamel.
We invite you to talk to us at your next dental visit to find out which veneer procedure is best for your unique needs and why.
3. Laser Whitening
This is one of the fastest ways to get a beautiful smile.
Laser bleaching is, by far, the best way to get fast, long-term whitening results.
Over-the-counter bleaching products don’t have the strength in-office bleach has. Therefore, it will take session after session to see results.
Not only are our bleaching products more potent, they’re activated by a laser. You’ll see incredible results in just a couple of visits.
To get the same results at home, it would likely take a number of weeks.
4. Composite Fillings
Most people don’t like the look of silver fillings. We can replace these fillings with tooth-colored filling material, called composite fillings.
Not only can we replace old fillings, we can use this material to mask some of the very same issues which are treated with veneers.
This means, if you have staining, chipping, or somewhat crooked teeth, we can create “veneers” with this material.
Of course, it won’t last as long as traditional veneers, but it’s a nice option for people who want a faster, more affordable option.
5. Dental Implants
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. The wonderful thing about implants is they look, feel, and function like real teeth.
A titanium post is placed into the patient’s bone, which acts as the root of the tooth.
After healing from this surgical procedure, we place an abutment onto the post and take an impression. Our lab then fabricates a custom gold or porcelain crown.
What sets us apart from other cosmetic dental offices when it comes to implant procedures?
The difference is most general dentists have to refer their patients to surgical specialists to place the titanium post.
At our office, we have a dental team able to do this. This means you only need to come to one office to get all of your cosmetic work done.
We feel this eases our patients’ minds because they already feel comfortable with our doctors and dental team, and they don’t have to worry about having procedures done by someone they don’t know and trust.
You Can Have the Beautiful Smile You’ve Always Wanted
At LA Dental Town, we can provide cosmetic dental procedures which fit nearly any budget.
If you can’t afford a complete dental overhaul, we can brighten your smile for the fraction of the cost with our bleaching system. Or we can add some Lumineers into the mix to hide chipping or minor misalignments.
The possibilities really are endless – which is why we’re so excited to be able to offer these services to our patients. It gives us the opportunity to give everyone the smile they’ve always wanted.
