What We Do

Welcome to state-of-the-art dentistry with personalized care in a comfortable, modern facility.

TMD

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) involve issues with the joint that connects the lower jaw bone (mandible) to the rest of the skull (through the temporal bone). This joint and the muscles attached are what enable the jaw movements used in activities such as chewing and talking. Disorders in this area can result from a range of causes, such as injuries due to accident (especially involving whiplash), and detrimental habits such as grinding teeth and clenching the jawbone due to stress. Symptoms of TMD include pain when moving the jaw, limited mobility of the jaw, swelling, and a sensation of facial fatigue. These symptoms can be felt either on one side of the jaw or on both sides.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Have you lost, broken or injured your teeth or gums? Are your teeth worn down from grinding or acidic food/drinks? Do you experience ongoing pain in your jaw? Do you get regular headaches due to your bite being misaligned? Do you have major dental issues that you want to correct? Do you think you may need reconstruction of your teeth/gums? Are you unhappy with your teeth or your smile?

Full mouth reconstruction is a specialized treatment requiring extensive training so it’s critical to consult a dentist with expertise and to do a comprehensive examination to discuss your goals and treatment options.

Porcelain Veneers

Are your teeth noticeably stained? Do teeth whitening dental products seem to have a limited effect? If this is the case, then veneers might be the solution to your problems. Veneers are incredibly thin shells that are custom made to cover the surface of a patient’s teeth in order to improve appearance.They are tooth-colored, and composed of either porcelain or resin. Porcelain veneers in Studio City are more durable and look more realistic, but are also difficult to insert. Resin veneers are less effective than porcelain ones, but require far less of a tooth’s surface to be removed prior to installation. Veneers are used to improve the appearance of a wide range of flaws, such as discolored teeth, worn down teeth, chipped teeth, broken teeth, misaligned teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, and teeth separated by gaps.

At Studio City Dental Center, getting veneers is a three-step process. First, potential patients must come into the office for a consultation session, during which we ascertain whether or not veneers are the best option in that circumstance. This session will likely involve dental x-rays and other basic inspections. Once it has been confirmed that veneers will be installed, the patient must come in again for preparatory treatment. This treatment largely consists of removing the enamel that is to be replaced by a veneer. This generally means that about half a millimeter of enamel will be removed from the surface of the tooth. Once this is done, impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to a dental laboratory at which veneers are constructed. It usually takes a week or two for us to receive the completed veneers. During the time, the patient can wear temporary veneers if they desire.
