Has Your Smile Lost Its Luster?

Hello Los Angeles! Has your smile lost its luster? Are your teeth discolored? If flashing a pearly white smile is important to you, I can help. My name is Bill Dorfman and I have been creating whiter, brighter smiles for patients in the Los Angeles area since 1985 at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry.

Whether your teeth have been stained through sipping dark-colored drinks such as red wine or coffee or if smoking has left your teeth brown and dull, my staff and I at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry can lighten your teeth and improve your smile.

Maybe you have injured a tooth causing it to turn gray. We offer several solutions to restore the color to a tooth. When you come in for a consultation we will determine which cosmetic dental procedure is prime for your teeth.

Your smile the first thing people notice. I will make sure your smile is brilliant and absolutely sensational!

At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry we not only offer tooth whitening to our Beverly Hills area patients, we also offer cosmetic dentistry.

If you or your family need Invisalign braces or Zoom whitening we invite you to come in for a dental consultation. We are located at 2080 Century Park E, Ste 1601 in Los Angeles, California.

Smile Makeovers: First Things First

September 23rd, 2016

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.

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.

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.
