A smile makeover is the process of enhancing ones smile through various cosmetic dentistry procedures such as Zoom teeth whitening and porcelain dental veneers.
When evaluating a patients smile Dr. David Schlang looks for certain factors regarding your teeth and appearance such as:
The goal of a smile makeover is to improve your smile by taking into consideration all aspects that may have an impact on your smile. Smile makeover consultations are customized to include whatever it is that you don’t like about your smile. For those patients that have severely damaged teeth, full mouth rehabilitation or full mouth reconstruction may be necessary.
If you are looking for a Los Angeles or Santa Monica Cosmetic Dentist, we encourage you to come by our office to learn more about dental veneers and find the right solution for your dental needs.
When it comes to achieving perfect teeth, we offer a number of treatments to give our patients bright and full smiles. Our cosmetic dentistry procedures can reshape and repair chipped and discolored teeth, whiten your smile, and fill cavities. Take a look at our cosmetic treatments below:
Teeth Whitening – In an effort to combat the many things that stain teeth, whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Dr. Schlang offers Zoom!, an in-office treatment that oxidizes stains without harming the teeth. The process only takes an hour and patients leave with brighter, whiter teeth. This in-office treatment is much safer than at-home whiteners and gives patients visible results right away.
Porcelain Veneers – Used to repair stained, cracked, and misaligned teeth, porcelain veneers can even correct gaps in teeth. The process generally requires three appointments in which Dr. Schlang will evaluate your teeth, make molds, and apply the veneers. What’s great about veneers is they’ll last as long as you take proper care of them.
Dental Crowns – Often used in dental implants, crowns are used to repair damaged, diseased, and missing teeth. Dental crowns are sturdy and resistant to harmful bacteria, giving you strong and healthy teeth. Additionally, crowns look like your natural teeth.
White Fillings – Depending on your preference and the health of the tooth, composite or ceramic fillings are used to fill cavities and further prevent tooth decay. Each type of filling is designed to match the natural color of teeth. Unlike amalgam, composite fillings don’t contain mercury.
Dental Implants – Implants consist of three parts, including an implant, abutment, and crown. The implant is a screw that is bonded to your jaw, acting as the root for your new tooth, while the abutment secures the crown to the implant. Implants are used to replace missing teeth and they look and feel natural.
CEREC – A high-tech device used for ceramic tooth restorations, CEREC uses a digital camera and 3D technology to form an optical impression of patients’ teeth.
Invisalign – Growing in popularity, Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic aligners used to straighten teeth. The aligners are custom fitted and removable, providing comfort and easy maintenance. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces, but may not suit every patient.
