What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The primary focus of cosmetic dental treatments is the way your smile works, primarily their color, alignment, and overall appearance. From subtle changes to major reconstruction, Dr. Sabet can provide the services and information you need to make informed choices about how to improve your smile.
Dr. Sabet makes every effort to pursue conservative treatment plans that preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible. Whether you need a complete restoration or a single crown, we always prioritize the health of your smile over excessive procedures. Our treatment plans are both practical and effective, designed with your full comfort and satisfaction in mind.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me?
There is no shortage of ways for our team to create a treatment plan that meets your goals. We can even group procedures to streamline your time and financial resources. Cosmetic dentistry is focused on correcting:
- Signs of decay
How Aesthetic Treatments Improve Oral Health
Cosmetic solutions are trending in popularity and can include treatments to save your teeth and preserve your long-term health. We offer metal-free restorations that are more aesthetically appealing and crafted to resemble your natural enamel. Even though cosmetic dentistry focuses on appearance, a set of well-aligned and decay-free teeth are easier to maintain with regular brushing and flossing. So, keeping your teeth in optimal condition has a two-fold benefit: you look great, and you avoid more expensive complex treatments in the future.
Cosmetic Dentistry Options
During your initial consultation and exam, we take time with you to determine how we can best help achieve your goals. Our cosmetic solutions can address many different issues, such as stained, chipped, misshapen, or undersized teeth. Many cosmetic treatments are non-invasive, can be completed in a single visit, and produce dramatic results. Some prosthetics used in corrective treatment plans even strengthen teeth that have been weakened or damaged by trauma or decay. We can also seal gaps that would otherwise require orthodontic correction. At Joseph Sabet, DDS, we give you many cosmetic treatment options to choose from including:
Composite Fillings for Strong & Subtle Repairs
Some cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, are done purely for exterior improvement. Other methods can rebuild the interior as well as benefit the facade. Composite fillings are a great example of the restorative value of cosmetic dentistry. Fillings can reconstruct areas that have been lost to decay and matched to the color of the surrounding teeth. The result is a tooth that functions and looks better than it did before decay occurred. Porcelain is also one of the most popular materials for crowns, and other restorations help strengthen teeth while keeping them beautiful.
What is Composite?
Composite fillings are made from a compound of ceramic and plastic. These fillings are shaded to match your natural teeth, so you are the only one who will know they exist. The technology used to create composite resin has recently become more advanced and is now strong enough even to be used on the chewing surface of your molars. They also adhere strongly to tooth enamel, which means less material needs to be removed and replaced, preserving the existing tooth structure as much as possible.
Why Porcelain Crowns Are So Versatile
A crown, also known as a cap, is a tooth-shaped cover that is placed over your natural tooth. Crowns are necessary when one or more teeth become weakened due to dental trauma or poor oral hygiene. Because they are durable and adaptable, crowns are used in many treatments for both restorative and cosmetic reasons. We may recommend crowns to:
- Cover a misshaped or discolored tooth
- Attach a dental bridge
- Repair a fractured tooth
- Take the place of a large filling
- Protect a weak or fractured tooth
- Cover a tooth after root canal treatment
- Complete a dental implant
Crowns restore the shape, size, and durability of your natural tooth, allowing your dentition as a whole to obtain optimal functionality. They are the treatment of choice for many issues and always aesthetically on target.
After the decay or damage is effectively removed, we will take a precise digital impression to create your custom crown. A professional lab fabricates your crown from high-quality porcelain and even hand-paints them in some cases, so they blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth. Once the prosthetic tooth is completed, it will be attached with professional adhesive and adjusted for comfort and appearance. With the crown cemented in place, you can return to your daily activities and enjoy the benefits of their durable restoration for many years.
How are Custom Veneers Different than Crowns?
If your teeth are intrinsically stained but still structurally intact, you can cover the imperfections with a porcelain veneer instead of a crown. Veneers cover only the front portion of the tooth and are used in the areas that are the most noticeable when you smile.
Dr. Sabet will carefully prepare each tooth receiving a veneer, then send the impressions to the lab. When your custom veneers are ready, they are applied with a special adhesive, and you are ready to go! If Dr. Sabet determines you are a good candidate for veneers, we recommend whitening your smile before veneers are placed so that they can be matched to the brightest shade of your natural teeth. Veneers are very non-invasive and can be used on multiple teeth without compromising bite strength.
ClearCorrect Aligners for A Beautifully Straight L.A. Smile
Cosmetic dentistry can also help you receive a straighter, more symmetrical smile. If your alignment issues are mild to moderate, then ClearCorrect may be the perfect option for you. Straight teeth are not only easier to clean, but they can also make you feel more confident and more dedicated to keeping your smile in optimal health.
ClearCorrect aligners are more comfortable and much less noticeable than traditional braces. The treatment time can also be much shorter than metal braces and can be completed in one year rather than two. The first step is to have complete digital imaging of all your teeth and an analysis of their optimal position. Then a series of clear plastic aligners are made just for you. Every two weeks, you will get a new set of aligners that gradually shift individual teeth until your smile is properly aligned. The last set of aligners will be used as a retainer to wear every night, and you can also add professional whitening gel for a quick brightening treatment.
Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment
Many factors can lead to teeth becoming discolored, like consuming dark-colored drinks and unhealthy habits such as smoking. The thought of having white teeth and a glowing smile is often attractive for many people. This is why tooth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental treatments. In general, tooth whitening involves the removal of stains from the inner and outer surfaces of your teeth. The result is bright white teeth whenever you smile. If you’re tired of seeing yellow or stained teeth in the mirror, consider having your teeth whitened by our experienced team.
There are many different ways of whitening stained teeth, including specialty toothpaste, whitening strips, and even oil pulling. However, in-office whitening at our Los Angeles dental practice will remove both extrinsic and intrinsic stains from your enamel. Extrinsic stains are the ones near the surface of your tooth, while intrinsic stains are embedded deep within your enamel and can be harder to remove. Before the treatment, we perform a thorough cleaning and polishing, and then we will do several 15-minute sessions with light-activated whitening gel. Within one hour, you will leave our office with a brilliant, clean smile that is up to 7 shades lighter!
Why Replacing Missing Teeth is Important for Your Oral Health
The most advanced technology available, dental implants can be used to support a range of cosmetic restorations that include crowns for single teeth, partial dentures, and bridges for multiple teeth and full dentures for patients who are missing all of their teeth in the upper or lower palate, or both. Having a complete smile can make a big difference in not only your appearance and how you feel about yourself; it also provides a host of other benefits.
4 Benefits of Dental Implants
- Stopping bone loss, which can affect your facial structures. When you have a missing tooth, the jawbone detects the absence, and it responds by weakening because it no longer needs to support a tooth there. Bone loss can cause facial collapse, which will make you appear older.
- Implants are as stable and secure as healthy natural teeth, so you can eat what you want. You will no longer have to limit your diet and eat only what your teeth can handle.
- Implants are made to look like your natural teeth, so you will no longer have to be embarrassed by gaps caused by missing teeth. Implants are virtually undetectable from natural teeth.
- Dental implants are resilient and easy to maintain. Dentures are not only uncomfortable, but they need a lot of maintenance. Dental implants are just like actual teeth and are rooted in place. You care for them like your natural teeth with regular checkups, cleaning, and flossing.
When you decide to get dental implants, you are doing far more than just replacing a tooth. Dental implants can offer a lasting solution to all of the problems mentioned because they work just like real teeth. With dental implants, you can feel whole and confident again because they can renew your smile and be a confidence booster lifting your self-esteem.
