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.

Tooth Loss Can Cost More than Just Money

July 29th, 2016

tooth-lossA recent International and American Associations for Dental Research report on costs associated with dental diseases indicated the total amounted to $442 billion per year. Improving oral health around the world could help reduce these costs.

However, poor dental care that results in gum disease and tooth loss can cost people much more than just money. Here are three ways your Century City cosmetic dentist warns tooth loss can cost the average adult.

Tooth Loss and Unemployment Go Hand in Hand

Where there is unemployment, there is higher tooth loss, according to a recent post in USAToday. The conjecture is that missing teeth negatively affects a person’s chances of landing a job. Specifically, West Virginia had the “highest jobless rate in June” while at the same time it had “the most working-age adults” missing six or more teeth.

While the most obvious effect of tooth loss is aesthetic, in addition to being unsightly, tooth loss can affect speech. This one-two combination may increase problems when it comes to finding and keeping a job.

Tooth Loss Ruins a Smile and Confidence

The absence of one or more teeth can ruin your smile as well as destroy your confidence. Specifically, a national study found that depression and anxiety are associated with tooth loss. However, tooth loss can affect those around you as well.

Several studies cited at WebMD suggest smiling may lead people to assume you’re successful. In fact, statistics show that most people notice the smile first when meeting someone for the first time. Teeth and smiles are the “second most important attraction feature.”

Unfortunately, many people with visible tooth loss resist smiling due to lack of confidence. Your Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist can help make your damaged smile look new again.

Tooth Loss Can Result in Other Health Problems

The biggest reason for tooth loss is gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis), according to the Academy of Osseointegration. You increase your chances of gum disease if you smoke or don’t eat a well-balanced diet. Chronic ailments such as diabetes or hypertension may also lead to gum disease. However, research now shows that the reverse may be true as well. Gum disease may lead to other health conditions.

For instance, research suggests the “relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease goes both ways.” Additionally, while the jury is still out on the cause-and-effect relationship between periodontal disease and heart disease, there are those who believe there is a connection. While bacteria have always been a factor in gum disease, it’s only been recently that health care professionals have begun to link the inflammation of gum disease to other health concerns.

If you suffer from gingivitis, periodontitis, or tooth loss, speak with your Century City cosmetic dentist to determine how he can help you save your smile.
