Raise Your Dental IQ In Century City

Century City Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many simple things that the average Century City area resident can do to raise their Dental IQ and improve their oral health. One simple lesson involves bacteria, and everyone’s mouth has a lot of it.

But, don’t worry, bacteria per se isn’t the problem. Dental problems occur for Beverly Hills patients when the balance of bacteria becomes unhealthy. This is where brushing and flushing might come into play. Another precaution you can take to guard against the wrong kind of bacteria is to keep your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible, and close the lid of the toilet before you flush.

Make sure to wash your hands before you brush and floss. No exceptions!

When it comes to a good toothbrush, don’t get sentimental. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. If you can avoid the unhealthy balance of bacteria in your mouth, you can avoid gum disease, tooth decay, as well as bad breath.

If you can avoid decay, it’s less likely that you will need more extensive dental work such as Hollywood dental implants and crowns.

I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman and I am passionate about helping my patients have healthy mouths and beautiful smiles. If you would like to know more about a custom smile makeover in the Beverly Hills area, give us a call at (855) 219-8706 and a member of our professional and aware staff will answer any questions you have and schedule a cosmetic dental consultation at your convenience.

Attention Los Angeles: Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose Teeth

Attention Beverly Hills Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethHello Los Angeles visitors, welcome to Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. Let’s talk about a tooth replacement option common in Beverly Hills: dental bridges.

While dental bridges have restored smiles for thousands of Beverly Hills dental patients, they are not problem free. Many California people with dental bridges find it impossible to keep the small areas around the bridge clean. This is not surprising because it is hard to get toothbrush bristles or dental floss under the bridge.

Of course bacteria has no trouble moving in and taking over without the Los Angeles dental patient even knowing it. When the decay reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, the person is at risk of losing those teeth also.

That is one reason why a dental implant is superior to a dental bridge. Most Beverly Hills people with missing teeth are great candidates for dental implants.

A dental implant looks just like the beautiful tooth restoration on a high-quality dental bridge, but the important part is what you don’t see.

A dental implant is screwed directly into the jaw bone. It is not attached to teeth like the dental bridges traditionally used in Beverly Hills. In a way, a dental implant is a more conservative tooth replacement because it leaves the adjacent teeth intact. The bone and gum tissue mesh permanently with the titanium post that serves as the replacement tooth root.

Dental implants do not have the same decay risk as the teeth that anchor dental bridges. Of course patients with dental implants need to brush and floss, but cleaning a dental implant is usually no more difficult than cleaning a normal tooth.

Dental implants have a far better track record in California than dental bridges. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime for smile-smart Beverly Hills folks.

If you currently have a dental bridge, you might consider permanently replacing it with a dental implant before the adjacent teeth are threatened with decay.

At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, dental implants can replace one or more teeth and can also serve as anchors for full or partial dentures. No more embarrassing slipping!

If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, I invite you to call Century City Aesthetic Dentistry at 877-703-7062. I am Dr. Bill Dorfman. Call today to schedule a dental implant consultation. A beautiful new smile can be yours with dental implants.

What Does A Missing Tooth Say About You?

Dental Implants for Missing Teeth in Los Angeles When you meet someone in Beverly Hills who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you? Do you wonder if they were in an accident? Do you automatically start making assumptions about their income, level of education and overall physical health?

Though it is extremely unfair, we are often judged (and misjudged) by our appearance. Even if a person is impeccably dressed and groomed, a missing front tooth detracts from the overall pleasing impression.

Here is a personal story from a woman who lost a tooth:

I lost my job and along with it my dental insurance, then a month later, one of my front teeth. It has been very hard to find work…. and I know the missing tooth has cost me several jobs.”

A missing tooth can be a big deal.

Dental implants not only restore oral health, they restore self-confidence. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants placed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants are one of the procedures we routinely perform at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry to help our Beverly Hills clients regain the beautiful smile they once had. Not all cosmetic dental procedures are as extreme as teeth implants. There are many minimally-invasive remedies for unattractive smiles.

Porcelain veneers instantly provide a perfect, gleaming tooth surface for Beverly Hills clients with broken or discolored teeth. Tooth whitening is a quick and affordable dentistry procedure in Hollywood that achieves dramatic results without requiring the removal of any tooth structure. Call Century City Aesthetic Dentistry at 877-703-7062 for more information about smile design and restorative dentistry.

Beverly Hills Dental Patients Want A Choice In Dental Fillings

Tooth Colored Fillings in Beverly Hills

With all the talk in Beverly Hills of multi-procedure smile makeovers involving veneers, porcelain crowns, bridges, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces, sometimes the traditional dental filling is overlooked. If a cavity progresses no further than a filling, California cosmetic dental patients can avoid more extensive and invasive treatments. Today, let’s talk about dental fillings.

Most dental patients in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area have a few fillings in their mouth. When a tooth has been damaged through decay, a dental filling is the most common way California family dentists restore the tooth to its previous, intact condition.

Dental fillings have been used for over a hundred years, and they’ve come a long way from the silvery amalgam fillings many of us in the Hollywood, Century City, and California areas remember.

Beverly Hills cosmetic dentists and dental labs have been working to formulate filling materials that are more cosmetically pleasing to their California patients.

Today, the filling material of choice in Los Angeles and around the country is a composite of plastic resin with glass or quartz filler. Referred to as composite fillings, Los Angeles dental patients love the fact that they can be matched to their natural tooth color, making them practically invisible. This is particularly important when the filling needs to be in a conspicuous part of the mouth, such as the front teeth.

Despite the popularity of tooth colored fillings, many Beverly Hills dentists still find amalgam fillings appropriate in some cases. Dental amalgam is made from a metal alloy, which gives it the ability to hold strong even when the chewing load is great.

I’m Dr. Bill Dorfman, a Los Angeles cosmetic dentist and I work hard to make sure my clients enjoy their dental visits and love their smile. I’ve practiced dentistry since 1985, and I find it especially rewarding when Hollywood, Century City, and California residents find renewed confidence after a smile makeover. So whether you are interested in replacing metal fillings with composites, or if you want to discuss tooth whitening and veneers, our staff would be happy to answer any questions you have.
