A smile makeover is a treatment or series of treatments designed to provide you with the smile you have always wanted. Dr. Ghasri, West Hollywood cosmetic dentist, offers each of her patients a comprehensive evaluation to help them determine which treatments may best help them achieve their best smile. If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover. Many people have issues ranging from mild staining or discoloration to severe misalignments, missing teeth, cracked teeth or broken teeth. The right treatment or series of treatments can correct these problems and help restore your confidence in your smile.
Common treatments used in a smile makeover include white fillings, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, Invisalign, dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants and Lumineers. Our dentist will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment or technique so that you can determine which may be best for you. Your treatment plan may be able to be completed at a single appointment or at a series of appointments. Those who suffer from dental anxiety or who need extensive treatments may benefit from sedation dentistry, which can help them feel more relaxed and comfortable throughout their procedures.
Our dentist can address dental stains with tooth whitening, dental veneers or Lumineers. The type and extent of staining will help determine your options. Superficial stains can be treated with in-office whitening procedures. Internal stains, often caused by trauma or medications, may require veneers, which are porcelain shells bonded to the front of teeth to hide imperfections.
We have several options for treating teeth that are gapped, cracked or chipped. Dental bonding, dental veneers and Lumineers are the most common choices. Dental bonding can be performed in our office, and requires a white composite resin material that is applied, cured and polished in just one appointment. Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic procedures, but it is not as long lasting as such procedures as Lumineers or dental veneers.
If your teeth are misaligned, our dentist may recommend orthodontics, such as braces or Invisalign, for your smile makeover. Missing teeth may be restored with bridges, dentures or dental implants.
