A New Smile with Invisalign®

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is the revolutionary tooth straightening system that is perfect for people who have tipped, tilted or rotating teeth. If you want to close that gap between your front teeth, Invisalign® could be the answer.

According to Dr. Bill Dorfman, anyone can have an award-winning grin, and if you have never been happy with your slightly crooked teeth, you don’t have to resort to conventional wires and brackets.

How it Works

Invisalign® is a system that uses between 11 and 32 sets of clear plastic aligners that are custom made to give you the smile of your dreams, and if you are a good candidate for the tooth straightening system, Dr. Dorfman will be able to show you what your new smile will look like before your aligners are made.

Invisalign® will straighten your teeth using custom-made aligners that are created just for you. Made from comfortable and smooth plastic, the aligners are virtually invisible. In fact, the only people who will know that you are having your teeth straightening are you and Dr. Dorfman.

The Treatment Plan

During your treatment, you will wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours each day. You will remove the aligners when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Once a week, or depending on your treatment plan, you will swap out your aligners for a new set. One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign® is that you will only have to see Dr. Dorfman once every six weeks to make sure that your treatment is working as it should.

Hollywood’s Dentist to the Stars, Dr. Bill Dorfman, who you will recognize from popular television programs including Extreme Makeover, Good Morning America, The View, and The Doctors, is an accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and author of Million Dollar Smile, a New York Times best seller.

Dr. Dorfman and his team are dedicated to giving you a beautiful healthy smile that you will be proud to show the world, and if you would like more information regarding the Invisalign® system, call or click and schedule an appointment with Dr. Dorfman.

Is Mouthwash A Must?

Century City after hours dental

If you’ve ever walked the aisles of any Los Angeles, California drugstore, you know that there are many different types of mouthwash. Some tout their germ-killing abilities, others emphasize their fluoride content, and some claim to whiten teeth while freshening the breath. These are all great benefits, but will they make or break your dental health?

Many folks in the Los Angeles area wonder if daily mouthwash should be part of their dental routine. Brushing and flossing are the two critical habits that have the greatest affect on dental health, so if you’re doing these two things, is mouthwash required?

I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman of Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles. When my dental patients ask about mouthwash, I tell them that as long as they follow the directions on the bottle, mouthwash may slightly benefit dental health, even if it doesn’t live up to every promise as advertised. Rinsing with a mouthwash that contains fluoride can’t hurt your teeth, but allowing a bit of diluted toothpaste to stay on tooth surfaces after brushing probably has the same benefit.

People who suffer from bad breath often believe that mouthwash can solve the issue. Actually, mouthwashes that contain alcohol can worsen the trouble because they can cause dry mouth – a condition that can contribute to bad breath. Mouthwashes without alcohol are ordinarily more effective for freshening breath. These products are usually called fluoride rinses.

If you have chronic bad breath, however, you should have your teeth checked for plaque build-up. No amount of mouthwash can remedy a mouth full of plaque. If your teeth and gums are healthy and you still suffer from bad breath, it’s important to confirm the cause. Bad breath can be an indication of a physical condition, so see your doctor soon.

Bottom line? Never substitute mouthwash for proper brushing and flossing. And if you use mouthwash, elect a brand that contains fluoride and no alcohol.

Thank you for visiting the Los Angeles dental blog. We like to tackle important issues such as dental products, cosmetic dentistry procedures, over-the-counter teeth whitening, sedation dentistry, invisible braces, pediatric dentistry, oral care habits, and more!

My practice, Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, provides premium dental care to our valued patients. If you are interested in making an appointment, please call us at 877-703-7062. A member of my professional and aware staff can answer any questions you have about our services.

Soda Spells Double Trouble For Los Angeles

Los Angeles dental financing

Soft drinks, soda, pop. No matter what you call it, it seems that these days it’s the dietary villain of choice. Today in the Century City Aesthetic Dentistry dental blog, we are going to give you yet another important reason to avoid this ubiquitous drink.

For dental health, soda deals a double punch of damage with two of its ingredients: sugar and phosphoric acid.

Sugar is bad for your teeth primarily because it softens enamel and makes the teeth more prone to dental caries. This is especially harmful to kids and teens because their enamel is not fully developed.

Some people think that they can avoid troubles because they elect diet soda. Unfortunately, the acids found in diet soda have basically the same detrimental softening effect on enamel.

Soda consumption can also result in teeth staining. If your teeth are already stained from soda or anything else, call 877-703-7062 to schedule a teeth whitening consultation.

Our recommendation is simple: stop drinking soda or dramatically reduce your soda consumption to improve your dental health. Also, keep your kids away from soda as much as possible so their teeth have the chance to mature healthily.

Can’t kick the habit? Try to drink water right after you have soda and brush more often (but wait a half hour after you drink your soda so the enamel isn’t brushed while it is soft).

My name is Dr. Bill Dorfman. I provide advanced general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry to the Los Angeles area. If you have any questions about general or cosmetic dentistry, give us a call at 877-703-7062.

Oral Health can affect your Overall Health

oral health

Your oral health can give clues to your dentist and your doctor when it comes to your overall health. Problems that occur in your mouth really can affect your entire body.

The Connection

Your mouth is loaded with bacteria, and while most of that bacterium is harmless defending your body against the bad staff, poor oral hygiene can upset the balance. If the bad bacteria are allowed to live in your mouth, oral infections, such as gum disease and tooth decay can occur. Brushing twice and flossing once each day, along with regular dental appointments and a healthy diet, can go a long way in preventing bacteria growth.

Conditions that could be linked to Teeth and Gums

According to Century City Dentist, Dr. Bill Dorfman, your mouth health could contribute to the following conditions and diseases:

Cardiovascular Disease-Recent research is suggesting that clogged arteries, heart disease, and stroke may be linked to oral bacteria, infection, and inflammation.

Encocarditis-An infection that occurs in the inner lining of the heart, or the endocardium, Endocarditis will typically occur when germs and bacteria spread from one part of your body to another. Your Beverly Hills Dentist explains that mouth bacteria can spread from your bloodstream and attach itself to parts of your heart that are already damaged.

Pregnancy and BirthPeriodontal disease can cause premature and low birth weights. Women who are pregnant need to pay careful attention to oral hygiene.

Existing Conditions that Can Affect Oral Health

Diabetes-Diabetics have a lower resistance to infection making them more susceptible to gum disease. Gingivitis and the more serious periodontal disease occur more frequently in diabetics. Because people with diabetes have a tough time controlling blood sugar levels, it is vital that diabetics pay close attention to oral hygiene. People with diabetes may need to see their dentist more often as well.

Osteoporosis-Osteoporosis causes brittle and weak bones. Researchers have found evidence that osteoporosis could be linked to tooth loss and periodontal bone loss. Drugs that are used to treat the disease also carry a small risk of jawbone damage.

Alzheimer’s Disease-Poor gum health is now being linked to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. A huge percentage of Alzheimer’s patients have gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Other conditions that could be linked to poor oral health include neck and head cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and eating disorders.

Because of the potential link between oral health and your overall health, it is important that you tell your dentist if you are on any medications, or suffer from chronic conditions or recent illnesses.

If you would like more information regarding oral health, call or click and schedule a dental appointment with Los Angeles’ most well known dentist, Dr. Bill Dorfman.

Periodontal Disease and Tooth Loss

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, and if you have red, sore, or bleeding gums, schedule an appointment with popular Century City Dentist, Dr. Bill Dorfman who can determine the severity of your gum disease.

Gum disease affects your gum tissue and is an inflammation that could cause problems for your jawbone. If left untreated, gum disease could leave you with missing teeth.

Gingivitis

The first stage of gum disease, gingivitis is reversible as long as you take good care of your teeth. Dr. Dorfman may recommend dental scaling and root planing, to remove the tartar, biofilm, and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth.

Your Century City dentist will use an ultrasonic instrument, a manual hand instrument, or both. Scaling and planing is usually done in quadrants, but can be done in one visit.

Because your gums are diseased and sensitive, a local anesthetic may be administered during the dental scaling and root planing. If you practice good oral hygiene and schedule regular appointments with your dentist, your gums will return to their healthy state.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is an infection around your teeth that includes the alveolar bone, the periodontal ligament, and of course, your gums. Recent studies indicate that there may be a connection between periodontal disease and:

  • Heart disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Respiratory Disease

People who suffer from diabetes may be more susceptible to gum disease. Doctors recommend that diabetics schedule dental appointments more often to keep gums in check.

If you have periodontal disease, Dr. Dorfman will perform a dental scaling and root planing on your teeth and gums. After a couple of weeks, you will return to your Century City Dentist. At that time, Dr. Dorfman may recommend periodontal surgery.

Bleeding, red, and sore gums should be taken care of as quickly as possible to avoid periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss.

Don’t wait until it is too late. Call or click and schedule a comprehensive dental checkup with the world’s most popular Century City Dentist, Dr. Bill Dorfman.

Cosmetic Dentistry Century City with Americas Dentist

cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry isn’t reserved for the rich and famous anymore, and if you have been putting off a visit with a qualified cosmetic dentist in Century City because of the cost, you may want to reconsider. These days there are many cosmetic dentistry options that are more affordable than you think.

Dr. Bill Dorfman, who has been featured on Extreme Makeover and The Doctors, is known as the, “Dentist to the Stars,” and can determine what cosmetic dental procedures would be best for your particular needs.

Your Dental Consultation

During your dental appointment, Dr. Dorfman will examine your teeth and gums to make sure that you are healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry. If you have gum disease or tooth decay, those issues will need to be addressed before any cosmetic dentistry procedures can take place. If your teeth and gums are ready for a change, the following cosmetic dental procedures may be recommended:

Porcelain Veneers

What used to cost more than you could afford is now available for rotated, gapped, dull, or chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers can turn your dull, worn, or stained smile into a gorgeous new grin that can be yours in as little as two dental visits.

With porcelain veneers, you can change the size, shape, and alignment of your natural or restored teeth being fitted with temporary dental veneers that look just like your own teeth. Once your new porcelain veneers are ready, they will be placed on your teeth giving you a beautiful new smile.

Dental Crowns

With the reflective properties of your natural teeth, dental crowns could be the answer if you are unhappy with your worn, stained, or damaged teeth. Old restorations or large fillings can also be helped with dental crowns. Ask Dr. Dorfman if you are a good candidate for dental crowns.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is another cosmetic dental procedure available from Dr. Bill Dorfman, who is known to millions as America’s Dentist. Dr. Dorfman and his practice offer dental bonding for a quick fix. Although dental bonding typically lasts between five and seven years, it is a great alternative if, you are unsure about porcelain veneers.

Invisalign®

The clear alternative to old school wires and brackets, Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are swapped out once a week. On average, your new smile could take anywhere from six to 18 months using between 11 and 31 clear plastic aligners.

Tooth Whitening

The most popular cosmetic dental procedure on the planet, professional tooth whitening can brighten stains, yellowed or discolored teeth. Dr. Dorfman and his team of cosmetic dentists in Century City use Zoom!® the chairside tooth whitening system along with Day White® Take Home and Nite White® Take Home. Be aware the tooth whitening will not work on internal stains or dental restorations.
