Improved Your Oral Health with Cosmetic Dentistry

You may be so focused on improving the appearance of your teeth that you aren’t even considering the oral health benefits. But it’s not an either/or situation because cosmetic dentistry and a healthy smile go hand in hand. Many cosmetic dental changes improve your oral health and improving your oral health usually also enhances the appearance of your smile.

  • Straightening your teeth improves your appearance but also makes them easier to keep clean and healthy
  • Tooth-colored dental fillings look beautifully natural while improving the integrity and health of the tooth.
  • We may recommend a dental crown to correct the appearance of an oddly shaped tooth, but crowns also strengthen and protect the tooth and can even improve your dental bite in some cases.

So, don’t look at cosmetic dentistry in Woodland Hills as a luxury; look at it as another way to invest in your beautiful smile and your long-term oral health.

Planning for Your Dream Smile

When you’re considering making a cosmetic change to your smile, the first place to start is by envisioning your perfect smile. Would you like to see brighter teeth when you flash a smile? Do you have chipped, broken, or worn teeth that throw off the symmetry of your smile? Would you like to correct the appearance of crooked teeth but don’t want to wear braces?

Answering questions like these helps you zero-in on what you’d like to change, and from there, you can look at treatment options to help you achieve that goal. But you’re not alone in this process because we’re here to answer your questions, make recommendations that make sense for you.

We’ll work together to plan your smile makeover using cosmetic dental treatments such as:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Porcelain dental crowns
  • Invisalign clear braces
  • Professional teeth whitening

Please call our Woodland Hills or Manhattan Beach dental offices to get started!

Cosmetic Dentistry Starts with a Healthy Smile

It can be exciting to think about your smile makeover, and we know you’re eager to get started. But you wouldn’t put fresh paint on crumbling walls, and we don’t perform cosmetic dentistry on unhealthy teeth.

The reason is that we want you to get the most out of your investment in cosmetic dentistry. Making sure you start with clean, healthy teeth allows us to deliver the highest quality, longest lasting results.

If you haven’t had a dental exam and cleaning in a while, we’ll start there. Our dentists will fill any cavities, and if you have gum disease, we’ll get that under control.

We’d love to help you get started on the road to your best smile, so please call our Manhattan Beach or Woodland Hills dental offices to learn about your options.

Professional Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile

Do you have yellow teeth or tooth staining from red wine or coffee? Because our teeth naturally darken as we age, your smile can make you look older than you really are. If you are looking for an easy way to get rid of stains and brighten your smile, professional teeth whitening is the solution you are looking for.

Professional teeth whitening is more effective than over-the-counter methods, with fewer side effects and more dramatic results. 

Custom Take-Home Teeth Whitening

We provide custom teeth whitening trays and professional strength whitening gel, along with detailed instructions for use. You can take your trays home and whiten your teeth at your convenience. Many patients see as much as eight shades of improvement, based on the level of staining when we started treatment.

Since the results of teeth whitening are not permanent, you can use your custom trays for future touch-up whitening at home!

Fix Flaws with Tooth-Colored Fillings and Dental Bonding

At Modern American Dentistry, we use tooth-colored composite material to create dental fillings that blend so well with your smile that they’re practically invisible. The material is made of glass and resin particles that combine to create a translucent appearance similar to tooth enamel. When we custom-shade the composite to match your teeth, the result is a repair that blends seamlessly into your smile.

These qualities also make tooth-colored composites perfect for fixing small cosmetic flaws like teeth that have chips along the edges. Since the material is pliable before we set it with a curing light, our Manhattan Beach cosmetic dentists can shape it to match the proportions of your tooth. Once the repair is complete and we set it with a curing light, no one will suspect that you’ve had any work done.

We provide accurate, long-lasting dentistry and guarantee our work. Our patients are pleased with the results and often rave about the treatment they receive. Call Modern American Dentistry today to see what we can help you achieve for your smile.

We Create Supermodel Porcelain Veneers

For patients wishing to change the appearance of their smiles dramatically, porcelain veneers can address several esthetic concerns all at once. From discoloration to wear, and even misalignment, dental veneers give you an entirely new look in a much shorter time than other cosmetic treatments.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front of your natural teeth. We can create a single veneer to address a problem tooth or multiple veneers to provide you with a whole new look.

We worked with Dmitriy’s Dental Studios and developed our own porcelain veneers for the most dramatic and natural-looking results. Some key features were essential to us when designing our signature veneers:

  • Indestructible
  • Long-lasting
  • Durable
  • Color-stable

The most noticeable characteristic of our Supermodel Veneers is that they look completely natural even at the gum line. If you have ever seen crowns or veneers that were too bulky, you know that they can take away from your overall appearance. 

Straighten Crooked Teeth with Invisalign Clear Braces

Crowded, crooked, or misaligned teeth can make you want to hide your smile. They also make it difficult to clean your teeth adequately, which puts you at risk for cavities and gum disease.

Getting straighter teeth doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend years in braces. In fact, for many people, Invisalign clear braces are the perfect solution to correct crooked or crowded teeth.

With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners move your teeth into their ideal position. We can usually help you achieve the desired results in as little as a year.

Invisalign works fast and also has other benefits over traditional bracket and wire braces:

  • The crystal-clear aligners won’t mar your smile
  • Smooth, comfortable plastic won’t irritate your mouth
  • The aligners are removable for meals and oral hygiene
  • Treatment times are shorter, as little as 12 months in some cases.

Straightening your teeth has benefits beyond cosmetics too because they’re easier to keep clean. With straighter teeth, you can dramatically reduce your risk for cavities and gum disease.
