Implant Dentistry

Q) What are my options to replace missing teeth?
A) We offer bridgework, partials, full dentures, implant-retained dentures, and single implants. Dental implants offer the closest replacement to natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. Learn more about these services on our services page, then call for a consultation. With X-rays, intraoral photos, and a thorough assessment of your dentition, the dentist can help you decide which replacement option will be best for you.

Q) What are dental implants?
A) Dental implants are small titanium posts that we place into the sockets left by missing teeth. Bone naturally integrates with the biocompatible metal to create a solid foundation, much like a tooth’s root. Your implant dentist will place a single implant or a multi-tooth prosthetic atop your implant(s) to complete your smile. Learn more about implant dentistry here.

Aesthetic/Cosmetic Dentistry

Q) What is a cosmetic dentist?
A) Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, so any general dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. To choose a good cosmetic dentist, review the doctor’s before-and-after photos of actual cases, ask about his or her postgraduate education in cosmetic dentistry, and make sure that you feel confident and comfortable in the office.

Q) Is teeth whitening safe?
A) Absolutely. We bet you didn’t know that teeth whitening, in some form, has been around since the 1700s. Modern teeth whitening uses safe and effective bleaching gel to melt away stains and discoloration. Choose from Zoom! Whitening in our office or convenient take-home teeth-whitening kits.

Q) What is the difference between veneers and Lumineers?
A) Lumineers are actually a brand of veneers that requires minimal or no tooth preparation prior to placement. Some patients prefer Lumineers because of the quick application and reduced risk for sensitivity. However, others prefer traditional veneers because of their completely customized design.

Q) What can you do to straighten my smile?
A) Porcelain veneers or Lumineers can correct slight misalignments and gaps, as well as discolorations, chips, and other imperfections. From Hollywood to Beverly Hills, porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available today.

Q) You’re treating my son/daughter with braces, but I want a straighter smile, too! Problem is, I don’t want the immature look of braces. Is there a solution for me?
A) Absolutely. We offer a removable alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses 3D imaging to design a custom set of aligners, then the patient wears a new aligner every few weeks. For big events, simply remove the aligner. This makes cleaning easy, too. If you aren’t a candidate for Invisalign, consider traditional braces with clear brackets. This less obvious orthodontia is popular with teens and adults. Make an appointment to learn which treatment will suit your lifestyle best.
