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.

This year take control of your smile and schedule an appointment with Dr. Bill Dorfman who is recognized all over the world and responsible for some of Hollywood’s brightest smiles.

Toothbrush Wars In Beverly Hills

Toothbrush Wars in Beverly Hills

It may surprise you to know that some Beverly Hills people have very strong opinions about which type of toothbrush is the best: manual or electric. Is there really one that is clearly better? Most Los Angeles cosmetic dentists will tell you that all toothbrushes, when used correctly, are effective in removing plaque and that choosing which kind you like is really up to you.

Today in the Los Angeles dental blog we want to give you some extra information about toothbrushes to help you elect which kind is right for you or your child.

You need to consider cost and convenience.
Some Beverly Hills people argue that even though electric toothbrushes are more costly, you’ll save on dental bills. However, there are no definitive studies to back up this claim.

Manual toothbrushes are easy to find, whereas not all drugstores in the Hollywood, Century City, or California area carry all types of electric toothbrushes. This can be difficult when buying replacement heads. People who travel may find that a smaller, manual toothbrush is easier to pack (and batteries are not necessary).

The pressure you put on your gums with either type of toothbrush is critical. Some Beverly Hills residents say that it’s difficult to know how much pressure they use with electric toothbrushes, while others say that because of the quick electrical movements, they tend to be more gentle on their gums than when they use manual brushes. You may want to try them both to see what your brushing style is and discuss it with your Los Angeles dentist.

Special consideration should be taken for people with arthritis. Most Los Angeles area dentists advise their elderly and arthritic patients to use electric toothbrushes when their manual dexterity is diminished. As for children, once they are old enough, an electric toothbrush may be preferable, but safety should always be the first concern for Beverly Hills parents. Also, all dentists in the Hollywood, Century City, and California areas will remind you to look for the ADA seal on any dental product you buy.

Whichever type of toothbrush you choose, make sure you get soft bristles and replace it every three to four months.

I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman and I want to thank you for visiting my Los Angeles dental blog.

If you are looking for professional and aware dental care, tooth whitening, or cosmetic dentistry in or around Beverly Hills or Los Angeles, give us a call at 855-219-8706.

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.
