Join us! We will share tips, strategies, and ideas for improving your smile and improving your life. We truly believe a beautiful smile is your biggest asset.
Are you unhappy with your smile? Are your teeth yellowed and stained, damaged, decayed, or misaligned? It’s never too late to take action. From veneers to teeth whitening in Studio City, there are many solutions available to you to get the perfect smile. Perhaps you’ve tried all those whitening toothpastes to no avail or have to keep covering up your smile in photographs. You don’t have to hide any longer.
Take these steps with your dentist to get a brilliant smile you can be proud of.
Yellowed teeth can arise from a variety of sources, including coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco. These items often leave a film of brown or yellow discoloration on your teeth. That top layer may be removed with professional teeth whitening, which is a safe, quick, and effective technique that can be done in the office or at home.
Here at Studio City Dental Center, we use a cutting-edge whitening technology called G.L.O., which stands for Guided Light Optic technology. The GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening Device is used in conjunction with the Whitening G-Vial Gels and Whitening Mouthpiece for the best results.
The heat works with the whitening gel within the mouthpiece for more efficient, quicker, and longer-lasting whitening without much sensitivity. Scientifically proven to whiten teeth by five shades in under a week, our teeth whitening system has received rave reviews.
When tooth discoloration is so severe or the teeth have suffered too much damage, bleaching isn’t a viable option. Instead, crowns or veneers are a better choice. Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surface of each tooth, a material that is naturally plaque resistant for a low-maintenance smile.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and can stand up to daily wear and tear, plus they look more realistic than resin veneers. They are bonded or glued to your teeth and, as such, are permanent.
Crowns are another option to improve your smile. This is essentially a device that fits over the entire tooth, usually a good option when you have teeth that are weak or damaged. Crowns provide much-needed structural support to regain full functionality after decay. Crowns, which can be temporary or permanent, are also used to hold dental bridges in place or to cover implants.
Older adults start to lose their natural teeth due to age or decay. While this is certainly an embarrassing situation, it can also be dangerous because bacteria can set in when the teeth are dead or missing. You can get either full or partial dentures customized to fit your mouth.
The best way to get a healthy smile is through preventive dentistry. This includes regular cleanings every six months, as well as daily brushing and flossing to remove plaque and prevent cavities. Sealants are another way to prevent bacteria and food particles from entering your back teeth.
