Cosmetic Dentistry Services Studio City
While preventive dental procedures concentrate on the teeth’s functionality, cosmetic dental services focus on the overall appearance of a smile. These aim to improve the way your teeth and mouth look, altering certain aspects to make them more appealing.
Common procedures may include the following:
- Teeth whitening – brightens tooth surfaces using whitening strips or gel.
- Reshaping – fixes chipped teeth, removing certain parts to make them more aesthetically appealing.
- Bonding – restores the original shape or appearance by applying resin material on the tooth surface.
- Veneers – conceals gaps or discolorations routine teeth whitening cannot fix.
- Bridges – replaces missing teeth.
- Orthodontics – includes a variety of appliances such as braces, retainers, or headgear for fixing bite problems and teeth misalignment.
Invisalign is a breakthrough technology in cosmetic dentistry, providing many patients with a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign includes custom-molded, removable aligners that are almost unnoticeable when worn. The average treatment period may last for a year, depending on the patient’s condition. During the treatment, patients need to change aligners every two weeks until they move the teeth to their optimal position.
Invisalign may help fix crowded teeth, misalignment, and uneven gaps, much like conventional braces. This type of orthodontic appliance helps improve chewing and speech, reducing the risk of abnormal tooth wear and other oral problems. With Invisalign, you can have a beautiful smile and a greater sense of well-being.
Veneers are standard choices to achieve a natural-looking smile. These shells of tooth-colored porcelain or composite cover the front surfaces of your teeth. They help conceal gaps, chips, and other imperfections caused by worn enamel or other problems.
Our dentists may offer porcelain and composite resin in fabricating veneers. While composite resin may have its fair share of benefits, porcelain veneers are ideal for severe cases of discoloration, wear and tear, chipping, and cracking. These are also durable – porcelain veneers look, function, and feel like natural teeth.
This special brand of porcelain veneers may help improve the overall appearance of the teeth without the inconvenience of regular veneer applications. These special types of veneers are thinner yet more durable than standard shells – Lumineers are 0.2 mm thinner than regular veneers. These may also last longer and keep your teeth perfectly shaped and whitened for over 20 years.
KoR Whitening is an effective solution in removing stubborn stains on your teeth. Developed by Evolve Dental Technologies Inc., this whitening system is a proven technique for lightening and restoring damaged enamel. The bleaching gel, combined with KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching Trays, may provide longer hours of whitening activity than traditional bleaching methods. The procedure also results in minor sensitivity, helping patients achieve white and beautiful teeth for a long time.
