Trust Dr. Dorfman For Accurate Dental Info

June 17th, 2016

Los Angeles family dentistry

Dental patients are more informed than ever before and it’s not surprising that much of their knowledge about oral health and dental treatment is gleaned from online sources. Proactive self-education can be beneficial for you and your family, especially if it aids in living a healthy lifestyle. We caution our friends and neighbors in the Beverly Hills area, however, not to rely on online dental information until their dentist verifies its accuracy.

Misconceptions about medical treatment in general and dentistry in particular began circulating long before personal computers became ubiquitous but the web has exponentially accelerated the speed and distance they can travel.

Some of the most common dental myths are focused on the safety of x-rays, the risk of root canals, the facts about fluoride, and the effectiveness of alternative practices such as oil pulling.

In worst-case scenarios, patients delay or avoid necessary dental treatment because of something they encounter online. We encourage our patients to discuss all areas of concern with Dr. Dorfman. You can depend on Dr. Dorfman for accurate information and quality care.

At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, we are devoted to keeping your smile healthy and beautiful for life. Our motives are straightforward and transparent. You can’t always determine who operates and funds online dental sites, so be careful out there!

Since 1985, Century City Aesthetic Dentistry has provided distinctive general and cosmetic dental services including porcelain veneers, dental crowns, sedation dentistry, smile design, and Zoom whitening.

Danger Zone! 5 Signs Of Gum Disease For Century City

June 3rd, 2016

dental payment plans Hollywood

Here is some essential news for Beverly Hills residents: periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a major cause of tooth loss among adults. Fortunately, this problem is easy to treat if it is caught in the early stages.

So, what warning signs should people be looking for?

1. Gums that bleed very easily

2. Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed

3. Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together

4. Gums that are pulling away from the teeth

5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

Hopefully, you are not experiencing any of these things. If you are not removing plaque between your teeth, however, your gums are at risk. Brushing alone is not enough – make sure you floss daily.

Regular check-ups with your dentist is another critical weapon in the fight against gum disease.

I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman of Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. My Los Angeles practice also serves the Hollywood, Century City, and California areas. We take pride in caring for our patients and want them to have a healthy and attractive smile. Many of our patients wonder if a smile makeover is right for them. If you’d like to know, schedule an appointment and we’ll take a look!

Be Wise About Your Wisdom Teeth, Beverly Hills

May 27th, 2016

Be Wise About Your Wisdom Teeth, Beverly Hills

Hi, I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman, and today in the Los Angeles dental blog we will be discussing the often misunderstood subject of wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are sometimes called the third molars because they are even farther back in the mouth than the two sets of regular molars we all have. These four teeth usually erupt when a person is eighteen or nineteen.

Many dentists in the Hollywood, Century City, and California area recommend that wisdom teeth be removed to prevent misplacement in the mouth.

If a wisdom tooth doesn’t fully erupt, it may cause an opening in the gums that can attract bacteria and become infected. Some wisdom teeth are so misplaced that they can actually cause problems with the jaw bone. Both of these conditions can cause severe pain.

If you are in the Beverly Hills area and are wondering if your wisdom teeth need to be removed, call us today at 855-219-8706 to schedule an appointment. We can assess the condition and placement of your wisdom teeth and discuss a treatment plan.

We can also answer any questions you have about smile makeovers. Because there are so many quick and effective cosmetic dentistry procedures available, such as invisible braces, veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants, anyone in Beverly Hills can have a perfect smile. I love giving my Los Angeles patients the smiles they’ve always wanted.

Thanks for visiting the Los Angeles dental blog, and keep Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in mind for your dental needs. We offer:

sedation dentistry
Zoom whitening
porcelain veneers
smile design

We hope to see you soon!

When Bad Breath Terrifies: 4 Tips

March 4th, 2016

Los Angeles lowest price teeth bleaching

“My neighbor’s bad breath is scaring me.”

Do you live in Los Angeles, California or nearby? Bad breath isn’t just a problem for careful brushers in Beverly Hills, California or Hollywood. Your neighbors in Century City can spend all day brushing their teeth and still come out with bad breath.

But why?

I’m Bill Dorfman with Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. In business since 1985. My specialty is cosmetic dentistry. At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry we perform Invisalign braces and dental implants regularly. As a favor to Los Angeles, California I’d like to take a few minutes to share with you some insight about bad breath and give your neighbors some places to start in improving or removing the offending odor.

Brushing just the teeth may not remove food particles between the teeth and up in the gums. Bacteria can grow and stink from hidden floss-only locations. Gently brushing the gums, sides of the mouth and the tongue in addition to the teeth may make the difference.

Also, the food your neighbors are eating can affect the air they’re releasing. Onions, garlic and coffee are likely to show up on the breath no matter how much time is logged brushing.

Illness, infection, and allergies can all cause salivation issues which in turn upset the control of bacteria in the mouth. Diabetes, kidney failure, radiation therapy, liver malfunction, dry mouth or even postnasal drip can cause an odor.

Finally, dentures or a removable appliance may also carry bacteria that needs to be cleaned and freshened up on a regular basis. Bacteria balance in the mouth is ever changing.

1. Brush and floss the teeth as well as brush the tongue, gums and sides of mouth.
2. Enjoy onions and garlic a little less.
3. Stay on top of health issues.
4. Keep dentures clean.

This last one is for you:

Again, I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman. Located at 2080 Century Park E, Ste 1601 Los Angeles, California zip code 90067. We offer porcelain veneers, dental crowns, sedation dentistry, smile design, and Zoom whitening just to name a few of our fantastic dental services.
