Fix And Conceal Your Cavity At The Same Time

You want your smile to look its absolute best, and you want your mouth to be as healthy as possible.

Unfortunately, tooth decay can ruin that for you. Even though more than 90 percent of Americans will have at least one cavity in their lives — and many will have more than one — that doesn’t make it any less troublesome when you get one.

You may realize that you need a filling to deal with tooth decay, but you may not know where to go or what kind of filling to get.

If you live in or near Encino, CA, we would welcome you to visit the dentist office of Ira J. Moin, D.D.S, where our dental bonding treatment bridges the gap between restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

Let The Sun Shine On Your White Smile

Summer is one of our favorite times of the year. The longer daylight hours encourage many of us to spend more time out and about with family and friends.

Cookouts and vacations are just a few of the reasons we get to spend time with the ones that we love.

Even before smartphones, you could count on lots of photos being taken. Today, those photos are often shared on social media within minutes of being taken.

Are you ready for your next close-up? Are your teeth as white as you would like them to be?

If not, Ira J. Moin, D.D.S. can help. Call his dentist office in Encino, CA, to ask about our professional teeth whitening service.

The Many Uses For Dental Veneers

Cosmetic dentistry is incredibly popular, and why shouldn’t it be? Who doesn’t want a nice smile?

A nice smile makes you feel better. When you see one, it makes you want to smile, too.

When you have one, it gives you a boost of self-confidence when you are meeting people for the first time. This is true in social situations and professional ones, such as job interview or introducing yourself to a potential client or customer.

There’s just something about a nice smile. According to recent surveys, people with nice smiles are considered more trustworthy, more successful, and friendlier.

Ira J. Moin, D.D.S. has been helping people improve their smiles for more than 30 years. He can help you, too, if you visit his dentist office in Encino, CA.

One of our most versatile cosmetic procedures is veneers. Today, we want to explain what they are, and the many ways we can use them to make changes to your smile.

Don’t Have Another Bad Day Due To Your TMJ

With apologies to Rod Serling, imagine if you will …

A woman waking up to start her day. Before she gets out of bed, she notices that her face feels tender and sore. She can feel a headache coming on, too. She takes a few pain relievers before she jumps in the shower to get ready for work.

On the way to work, she swings by a coffee shop for some caffeine and a quick breakfast. The coffee tastes great, but the sandwich is causing her problems. The pain in her jaw is coming back the more than she chews. It gets to a point where she gives up and just drinks her coffee instead.

The hero of our story may not realize it yet, but she may have a TMJ disorder. If she does, then she may want to call a dentist. If you live in or near Encino, CA, then she should contact Ira J. Moin, D.D.S.

For millions of Americans, dental fear can be a barrier that prevents them from receiving the oral care that they need to keep their mouths as healthy as possible.

Our team at the office of Ira J. Moin, DDS, understands that coming to the dentist is more difficult for some people than others.

We also believe that we can help, no matter whether you have mild anxiety or severe dental fear.
