Peace Of Mind At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry

sleep dentistry Beverly Hills

At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.

Here are four ways we are passionate about your peace of mind at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles:

1. We don’t judge you. Dr. Bill Dorfman has devoted a professional career to promoting oral health and creating beautiful smiles.

The knowledgeable dental team at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental problem. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.

2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to oral conscious sedation, we will eliminate or minimize pain as best we can. Dr. Dorfman is a pro at administering barely noticeable injections.

3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more common than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The perceived loss of control, instruments poking in your mouth, and teeth being worked on is not pleasant. Some patients get claustrophobic because they need to lie still in the chair for treatment.

Sleep dentistry (oral conscious sedation) not only aids in pain management, it allows you to sleep through your appointment. There are different levels of sedation, so you don’t have to be completely unconscious unless you want to be. If you would like more details about sedation, call 855-219-8706 to schedule a consultation. We can discuss the different levels of oral conscious sedation so you can opt for the one that is best for you.

4. We communicate with you.
Dr. Dorfman has established a reputation as an effective and experienced communicator. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your essential questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you consider it for a while. There is no rush.

If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give Dr. Dorfman and the team at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. Call today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you. We offer a full menu of cosmetic dentistry services. Ask us about dental implants, teeth whitening, veneers, and dental crowns.

Affordable One-Visit Tooth Fix

affordable fix for chipped tooth Beverly Hills

Some Beverly Hills people are unhappy with the way their teeth look but many mistakenly assume that cosmetic dentistry is far too pricey to pursue.

Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be a steep investment. Consider the cost of dental school and post-graduate training for a master level cosmetic dentist. Consider the expense of individually creating multiple restorations at a high-tech dental lab. Consider the cost of setting up and maintaining a full-service dental practice or laboratory.

Before you give up on improving your smile, however, look at a less celebrated but extremely effective and affordable cosmetic dental remedy: dental bonding.

Dental bonding has a wide range of applications for unsightly teeth. Bonding can correct a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can can also repair teeth that have gaps in between them.

How does the dental bonding procedure work?

First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. Your dentist will use a shade guide to find out the perfect color of composite to match the existing teeth. Your dentist will apply liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer. He or she will carefully shape and polish it before it hardens.The tooth is then covered with a conditioning liquid that aids in adhesion.

Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the exact shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps quickly bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if required, complete the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.

Bonding is a simple and cost-effective method for perfecting your smile. Call today at to set up an appointment at 855-219-8706.

We invite you to meet the awesome team at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles. We offer a full menu of cosmetic dentistry services. Ask us about dental implants, teeth whitening, veneers, and dental crowns.

We are now accepting new patients and look forward to meeting you.

Crown Or Veneer?

cosmetic dentistry Los Angeles

I am Bill Dorfman of Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles.  Century City Aesthetic Dentistry offers multiple cosmetic dental procedures for creating sensational smiles. Two of the most popular procedures are dental crowns and porcelain veneers. Many patients don’t understand the difference between the two. Generally, a crown strengthens a compromised tooth while a veneer is used mainly for cosmetic improvements.

A dental crown covers the entire visible part of the tooth. A veneer is an ultra-thin layer for the front of a tooth. Veneers are made with several layers of extremely strong ceramic laminate. Crowns can be made of all porcelain (ceramic), porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Both crowns and veneers are affixed to the tooth with special adhesive. Crowns and veneers are durable and can last many years if properly cared for, though they are not stronger than natural enamel.

Both of these procedures improve the tooth aesthetically, but dental crowns are commonly a better solution for a tooth that has been compromised by decay, damage, or a root canal. Veneers can fix the shape of a tooth, correct a minor crack, cover stains, or straighten the appearance of teeth that are slightly misaligned.

The success of a crown or veneer procedure depends on skilled professionals at the lab and in the dentist’s office. Your cosmetic dentist must prep the tooth, create a precision mold, and submit an accurate order to the lab.

The role of the Los Angeles dental lab technician is equally critical.  Highly skilled lab technicians fabricate custom dental crowns and veneers to the specifications of the cosmetic dentist. They must have the skill to meet the precise standards required for successful restorations.

Consider the myriad characteristics of a restoration: the specific shape, the perfect size, the precise color, and the proper placement in the mouth. This is a case of all or nothing – each variable must be right on the mark or it must be redone.

The team at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry and the marvelous staff at our dental lab work together to provide the highest quality dental restorations for our valued patients.

If you would like more helpful details about crowns, veneers, and other cosmetic dental procedures, I invite you to reach out to us to schedule a cosmetic dental consultation. I can help you achieve a smile that is both healthy and remarkable. Call 855-219-8706 today!

 


5 Smile Makeover Questions For Los Angeles Smiles

How Much Does A Smile Makeover Cost In Los Angeles

If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are four considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, our Los Angeles smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. Bill Dorfman develops a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.

Oral Sedation?
Many Hollywood and Century City cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost?
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most Beverly Hills dental patients. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many Los Angeles residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at 855-219-8706 to discuss dental financing options in Los Angeles.

Healing Time?
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the necessary healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?
At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.

Call Century City Aesthetic Dentistry today at 855-219-8706 to schedule a no-pressure cosmetic dental consultation.

If My Gums Bleed, Should I Stop Flossing?

bleeding gums Los Angeles

This is a vital question occasionally asked by patients at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. The answer, however, is “No!” Bleeding is probably a sign that you need to clean your teeth and gums more thoroughly – not leave them alone. It is impossible to clean effectively between teeth without using floss or an interdental brush.

If you have never flossed before, your gums might bleed the first few times you use floss. The bleeding may be due to harmful gum inflammation, the beginnings of gum disease. Keep flossing gently and the bleeding typically stops within a week or two.

Gingivitis (gum disease) and the more advanced periodontal disease is extremely common in California and around the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that half of American adults aged 30 and over have periodontal disease. https://www.perio.org/consumer/cdc-study.htm

If you don’t make flossing a habit, and your gums become sore, swollen, and tender, it could bring about gum disease. The good news is that, unlike dental caries, gum disease can be reversed with improved oral hygiene.

It is vital to correctly use dental floss to remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth:

  1. Cut a length of floss about 18 inches long.
  2. Securely wind each end around your middle fingers.
  3. Take hold of the floss with your forefinger and thumb leaving about two inches to work with.
  4. Thread the floss between two teeth.
  5. Hold the floss tightly against the side of the tooth and move it up and away from the gumline. You want to clean the space between the tooth and gum without pulling more gum tissue away, so it’s important to scrape up and out of the pocket.
  6. Move the floss around the tooth to clean every surface – especially those that your brush can’t reach. As you use a section of floss, unwind from one hand to access a clean piece. With 18 inches, you should have enough to provide a clean section for every tooth. If you run out, that’s okay. Just toss the used piece and cut a new one.

Some people find it easier to start on one end on the upper teeth and clean each gap one by one until they reach the end on the opposite side. Then repeat for the bottom row. Whatever process you opt for, make sure you clean around every tooth, including the back surfaces of the last molars.

What if you continue flossing for a few weeks and still notice bleeding? Call Century City Aesthetic Dentistry at 855-219-8706 to schedule a consultation. Bill Dorfman, DDS, will perform an extensive examination to determine the cause of the bleeding.

At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, our goal is to help patients preserve healthy teeth and gums. Our dental hygienists not only carry out the most thorough dental cleanings, they also educate patients on proper brushing and flossing. If you have a child who needs extra help learning how to brush and floss correctly, schedule an appointment with our Century City Aesthetic Dentistry child-friendly team.

Some patients have perfectly healthy teeth and gums but are not pleased with their smile due to cosmetic problems. If you want to explore possibilities for improving your smile, communicate with us today at 855-219-8706.

We offer technologically-advanced cosmetic dental services including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, inlays/onlays, and tooth-colored filling replacement. Ask us about oral sedation options if you need help relaxing during dental treatment. You can depend on us to maintain the highest standard of safety and sterility at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry.

Smile Makeovers: First Things First

smile design Los Angeles

Hello, I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman of Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. Thanks for visiting my blog. In today’s post, we will focus on something that happens occasionally when a patient requests cosmetic dentistry from their dentist.

Let me set the stage. The patient comes in for a consultation about a smile makeover. We’ll call him Mr. Jones. The dentist listens carefully as he explains the esthetic problems that he wants to remedy. Mr. Jones wants to fix two chipped teeth, get a dental implant for a tooth that is missing altogether, and whiten his whole smile. He describes what he envisions for his smile after undergoing treatment.

The dentist performs an examination of his entire mouth and takes x-rays. The dentist discovers some additional issues. There are three teeth with moderate decay, one tooth with extreme decay, gum disease, an old crown with a crack in it, and severe bone recession at the potential dental implant site where the tooth was extracted ten years ago.

The dentist explains that these problems need to be addressed before the smile redesign is performed. Mr. Jones says that the smile makeover is his first priority and plans to deal with the other problems sometime in the future.

How does the dentist advise Mr. Jones? The dentist will probably explain that the lasting success of a cosmetic dental procedure such as porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or tooth whitening is influenced by the condition of the mouth at the time of treatment. There must be a solid, healthy foundation, so to speak, on which to build the smile makeover.

First things first. It makes no sense to attach a veneer to a decayed tooth that may need a root canal. A dental implant may not integrate with the surrounding bone structure if placed at a site where there is bone recession. Tooth whitening will probably not produce favorable results where there is gum disease and exposed tooth roots.

Can Mr. Jones ever have his dream smile? Yes! There are treatments to correct all of the problems mentioned previously. But just like many other things in life, the order of operations is critical.

If you are interested in a smile makeover or simply need a check-up, schedule an appointment by calling 855-219-8706. I look forward to discussing both your oral health and esthetic concerns.
