Living in California, we already understand the value of the “Hollywood Smile.” We see it regularly in magazine and newspaper images of actors and other celebrities.
Even though most of us will never become stars of the big or small screens, we should all have a smile that we are proud to share with the world.
A good smile can give us the confidence we need to pursue a romantic relationship, apply for a new job, or advance in our current career.
This is also why cosmetic dentistry remains one of the most important parts of our practice at the office of Ira J. Moin, DDS. If you live in our near Encino, CA, stop by our office to learn about any of these five easy ways we can help you make your smile better.
- Tooth Bonding
Do you have a chipped tooth or teeth? Do you have teeth that have been worn down by years of nail biting or one too many jawbreakers?
Did you play baseball, basketball, football, or soccer? And do you have a broken tooth to prove it?
No matter the reason, we can restore your tooth to its original shape and size with tooth bonding. Our bonding material is made to match the color of your teeth so it will blend naturally with the rest of your smile.
- Tooth Contouring
You probably don’t know why, but you may have a few teeth that are oddly shaped. Maybe they are a little too big compared to the rest of your teeth.
You can fix that problem with tooth contouring. We can reshape your tooth by removing the parts that make it stand out from the rest of your mouth.
- Gum Reshaping
Do you have a “gummy” smile? If your gum tissue overpowers your teeth, you may not feel comfortable smiling for photos. This can make you self-conscious about extending a handshake and smile when meeting someone for the first time, too.
Gum reshaping is a procedure to reveal more of your pearly whites. By removing a portion of your gum tissue, we can change the proportion of gum to teeth that is revealed when you smile.
- Teeth Whitening
This is one of the most popular cosmetic dental services in the United States. There’s a reason so many so-called whitening products are available in grocery and retail stores.
There’s also a reason you need to go to a dentist to get professional teeth whitening products. At our office, we offer Opalescence whitening to all our patients.
Opalescence contains higher concentrations of whitening agents than any commercial product. Whether you choose to use our take-home products or to receive an in-office treatment, you will be able to remove more stains in less time than you could with anything you would buy over the counter.
Another reason we offer Opalescence is teeth sensitivity. Some whitening products will leave your teeth feeling more sensitive after your treatments.
Opalescence is made with potassium nitrate and fluoride. These are desensitizing ingredients that strengthen your teeth and make the experience more comfortable for you.
Some people may consider veneers a kind of catch-all treatment for cosmetic dentistry.
Veneers can do for your teeth what false fingernails can do for your fingers. There is an important difference, however. Veneers can last for years or decades instead of just a few weeks.
So what can you do with veneers? If you think of something you would like to change about your teeth, veneers can probably make it happen.
If you have crooked teeth, veneers can them look straight.
If you have gaps between your teeth, veneers can close those spaces.
If you have crowded teeth, veneers can give you the appearance of a perfectly parallel smile.
If your teeth have become broken, chipped, or worn down, veneers can restore them.
And if your teeth are yellow or discolored for any reason, veneers can brighten your smile.
We also offer a variety of styles of veneers in our office. Whether you want something more durable, something with more grades of shading, or something that requires little or no preparation for your teeth, we have an option that will work for you.
