Same-Day Office Whitening Dental Services
We offer fast whitening treatments in our comfortable Beverly Hills, CA, office. During your visit, a rubber dam will cover your gums and tongue. Next, your physician will carefully apply a bleaching solution to the surface of your teeth. After about 15 to 20 minutes, your dentist will then direct a special light at your teeth to trigger a chemical whitening reaction. The process will be repeated until your teeth are several shades lighter.
Take-Home Whitening Trays That Are Easy and Safe To Use
You can also whiten your teeth at home using whitening trays. Each night, you’ll wear the trays for three to four hours until you achieve the desired results. At-home treatments do not produce the same results as in-office whitening, but they can dramatically improve the color of your smile.
Root Canal Treatments
The procedure begins with your dentist creating a hole in the top of your damaged tooth to remove the infected pulp. After rinsing your tooth with antiseptic, your dentist will refill your tooth with a rubbery material called gutta-percha. Next, your dentist will take impressions of your tooth and send them off to a dental lab that will fabricate a permanent crown. The last step is to seal the hole in your tooth to prevent reinfection.
After your root canal, you’ll take an oral antibiotic to prevent infection. If you experience any pain or swelling, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever. You’ll also need to avoid smoking until your tooth heals. The procedure only requires a local anesthetic, and most people fully recover in about a week.
When your crown arrives, you’ll return to the office to have it fitted.
Dental implants are made from biocompatible materials like ceramic and titanium and are used to replace missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
One major benefit of dental implants is that they stimulate bone tissue in your jaw. Bone tissue needs stimulation to retain strength and prevent deterioration of your jawbone to maintain the natural shape of your face.
To be a candidate for dental implants, you first need to have healthy gums. If you have gum disease, you’ll need to have that treated before getting dental implants by your dentist. You’ll also need to have sufficient amounts of bone tissue in your jawbone.
After your dentist secures your implant and the root fuses to your jawbone, your dentist will install a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or dentures.
If a toothache doesn’t respond to over-the-counter pain medication, you’ll need to have it evaluated by a dentist. Most extractions are minimally invasive procedures, but surgery is often required for impacted teeth.
Most people only experience mild discomfort after a tooth extraction, but if you are prone to anxiety or have a low sensitivity to pain, you may require sedation to stay comfortable throughout the procedure.
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign may be a viable option instead of traditional braces. The treatment involves a series of aligners made from thin, flexible BPA-free plastic that gently push your teeth into proper alignment over time.
Because the aligners are transparent, they are far less noticeable than braces, and you can remove them easily during meals, when brushing and flossing, or for important events or meetings. Invisalign is also less invasive and painful than braces. Most people achieve results in 6 to 18 months.
Common reasons to consider Invisalign treatment:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Open bite
Schedule an evaluation to see if Invisalign would be an option for you.
Do not delay treatment. Treating injuries at your dentist as quickly as possible can alleviate pain and potentially save your teeth.
If you lose a tooth, be sure to bring it with you to your appointment. Do not touch the roots directly, or you may damage them. To prevent the roots of your knocked-out teeth from drying out, keep your tooth in your mouth or a glass of milk until you arrive at the office.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, and it occurs when plaque builds up on the surfaces of your teeth. Over time, acids and bacteria in the plaque can irritate your gums and cause an infection, slowly eroding your gum tissue. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to more serious systemic infections throughout your body.
Gum disease often develops silently, so it’s important to recognize early warning signs.
Signs of gum disease:
- Gum swelling or tenderness
- Red or inflamed gums
- Loose teeth
- Bleeding during brushing or flossing
- Receding gums
Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. During this stage, your gums may become red, tender, or swollen. You may also experience bleeding during brushing and flossing. Treatment is critical to avoid the progression to periodontitis.
If you have signs of gum disease, call our Beverly Hills, CA office today to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Veneers are an affordable, non-invasive dental restoration that can restore the size, shape, color, or alignment of your teeth. A veneer is a custom-made covering made of various compounds (resins) that bond to the outside of your natural teeth. Unlike a crown that covers your entire tooth above the gumline, veneers only cover the front portion of your tooth. Veneers are typically used for cosmetic purposes.
Types of veneers:
- Porcelain: A type of ceramic that is strong, stain-resistant, durable, and long-lasting
- Lumineers®: A bonding agent that is fast, convenient, and less invasive
- eMax® Veneers: Similar to porcelain veneers, but applied in layers with a brush and then cured
- Porcelain Jackets: Similar to crowns, but no metal is involved
Reasons to consider a veneer treatment:
- Crooked teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Smaller-than-average teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Pointy or crooked teeth
To install a crown, your dentist will carefully remove a thin layer of enamel from your tooth. Next, they will take an impression of your smile and send it to a dental lab, where a technician will fabricate a custom-made crown. This may take a couple of weeks.
While you wait for your permanent crown to arrive, your dentist can add a temporary veneer that you will wear until it’s time to fit your crown.
Regular dental care is critical to your overall health, and our expert team is ready to help you regain your beautiful smile.
