Our office is located on the edge of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood in perhaps the best cosmetic repair facility in the region; and as such, we think of it more as a dental spa than a dental office. Our patients are pampered and refreshed when they leave. No more dreading going to the dentist. We can offer a youthful and glowing smile with the following services:
We don't advocate whitening techniques that damage tooth enamel. Therefore, we don't recommend or provide the quick-fix laser whitening, or any of the over-the-counter whiteners. Those techniques and products can damage tooth enamel and cause hypersensitivity. Trays are custom made from molds of the patients's actual teeth, which are theirs to keep, and use periodically for whitening.
In many circumstances, rather than using a crown, porcelain veneers will provide a cosmetic fix without the invasive procedure of crowning a damaged tooth. We use a lab run by the gentleman who once headed the dental division of the reality show "Extreme Makeover." Veneers aren't for every situation and are not as durable as crowns; but if a patient is looking for the perfect finished smile without reducing the tooth structure permanently, then veneers are a beautiful solution.
As a step between fillings and crowns, inlays and onlays are resilient forms of restoration that once again are not as aggressive a solution as a crown but offer another alternative to crowning a damaged tooth.
We recommend porcelain-fused or all-porcelain crowns. The porcelain materials have improved in quality to the point of surpassing the metals, and result in a cleaner - more perfect smile.
We strongly believe in getting rid of the mercury and other metals in your mouth. Not only are porcelain fillings far healthier than mercury laden fillings, but they also support a beautiful and naturally glowing smile.
In some cases where the patient may wish to avoid the reduction of tooth structure for a bridge, we offer dental implants that will fill voids without the reduction of any adjoining or unaffected teeth.
For those special cases where a "nip" and a "tuck" won't do, I specialize in procedures that involve drastic reconstruction and cosmetic makeover. Very few dentists have experience in these matters, and I've taught the subject at the USC School of Dentistry for 15 years.
Of course we offer the full range of dental services, including cleanings, cavity repair, root canals, removable appliances, dentures, partials, fluoride treatments and children's dentistry.
Please contact us for a free consultation. I would be happy to personally show you what a difference a beautiful smile can make in your life. Our patients generally look forward to their visits and leave feeling revitalized, pampered and refreshed. We look forward to your call.
