Crown Or Veneer?

August 19th, 2016

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

August 12th, 2016

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.

Getting Ready For A Dental Implant In Los Angeles, California

August 5th, 2016

dental implant cost Hollywood

Dr. Bill Dorfman at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles, California believes every patient deserves a brilliant smile whether it takes porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or sedation dentistry.

Today’s post will address the preparation needed for dental implants. Consider calling 855-219-8706 today for your own personal consultation and to receive one-on-one information specific to your needs.

Getting ready for a tooth implant includes understanding what it is, whether you are a candidate, how to prepare for the surgery, precautions to take throughout the healing process and what to expect once the implant is complete.

What is a dental implant?
Simply stated, a dental implant is a permanent post fused to the jawbone with attached abutment and artificial tooth. A tooth implant can also support a dental bridge or denture.

Who can benefit from dental implants?
Ideal candidates for dental implants include patients with missing teeth, dentures, or bridges who have healthy oral tissue, adequate bone structure, and proper health for bone healing. Our patients in Beverly Hills, California, Hollywood, and Century City come from all backgrounds and have a wide range of dental troubles. For many, dental implants are a phenomenal solution.

What preparation is needed?

An initial visit with Dr. Dorfman at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry 2080 Century Park E, Ste 1601, Los Angeles, California 90067 is the first step. For this evaluation be sure to bring pertinent medical information, current medication list, and questions you have about the process. Dental implants take multiple visits and the process is different for each person so be sure you understand all the important details. If we determine that you don’t have enough bone structure at the implant site, bone grafting may be required.

How do I ensure successful healing?
Avoid drugs or medications not approved by your dental caregiver. Eat soft foods for a while to give your mouth time to heal between surgeries. Keep the mouth cleaned properly around site. Follow the instructions given at each visit. Stay healthy by eating a nutritious diet and getting proper rest. Avoid smoking or other tobacco products.

How do I care for dental implants?

Caring for implants is not much different than caring for natural teeth. Be sure to avoid damaging, dangerous habits such as chewing hard items (ice or candy), and seek treatment for teeth grinding if it is a problem for you. See your dentist regularly. Keep the implants and gum tissue around the implants clean just as you (hopefully) do with your natural teeth.

The complete process can take months from consultation to complete healing and placement of the abutment and artificial tooth. At your initial consultation, we can discuss the cost of dental implants and look at financing options.

Visit http://www.billdorfmandds.com/meet-the-team/dr-dorfman/ for more details about our practice and services including invisalign braces, gum contouring, veneers and teeth whitening. Our professional and aware staff is ready to offer cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign braces, dental implants and many other general and cosmetic procedures.
