Looking great is feeling great! And a healthy, bright smile is the key to both. Brushing and flossing at home, and making regular visits to Westwood Dental Smiles in Los Angeles will help keep your smile shining with confidence.
But what if my smile is already damaged? Am I doomed to face the world unhappy about the way my teeth look?
Even if you take care of your teeth and visit your dentist on a regular basis, there may come a time that your teeth will need some work. You use your teeth a lot. And with frequent use comes damage, slight or extreme.
Here at Westwood Dental Smiles, we offer a variety of procedures to get that smile back into shape and have you feeling great about the way you look again.
A lackluster smile can be brightened with whitening.
Has that morning cup of coffee, or two, or three, taken its toll on your teeth over the years? Don’t worry. Westwood Dental Smiles offers KöR Extreme Whitening, the most effective system for removing deep stains. This system increases your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, which will make your smile whiter and help it stay that way!
Maybe your teeth don’t have those deep stains but can still use some brightening. In that case, Zoom whitening may be the procedure for you. With Zoom we will use a hydrogen peroxide gel and a fluorescent lamp to restore the shine to your teeth in one visit with three quick and easy sessions.
Teeth whitening is completely safe and painless, so don’t be afraid to brighten your smile and show it off to the world!
Chipped or otherwise damaged teeth can be restored with crowns or veneers.
If you have a tooth that is chipped, misshapen, or discolored, but is otherwise healthy, then you may need a veneer. At Westwood Dental Smiles, our porcelain veneers are custom fitted to your teeth and the color is matched exactly to the rest of your smile.
But if your tooth damage is more than cosmetic, then a crown may be in order. A crown is more than just a surface covering. After a damaged tooth is repaired, it will then be fitted with a crown which acts as a substitute tooth. This will not only make your smile look better, it will also help keep your mouth healthy and prevent further issues down the road.
Missing teeth can be replaced with bridges and implants.
Whether to tooth decay or a rogue hockey puck, sometimes teeth go missing. But you don’t have to let that keep you from smiling.
A bridge replaces a missing tooth by anchoring the substitute tooth to a crown on a tooth on either side. This is particularly effective if you have two or more damaged teeth in a row.
Another solution to missing teeth is a dental implant. An implant anchors the substitute tooth directly to bone. This is a permanent and effective way to close those gaps in your smile. An implant is as close as you can get to growing a new tooth!
Crooked teeth can be straightened with Invisalign invisible braces.
Crooked teeth not only affect the way your smile looks, but they can also lead to more cavities, affect your speech, and cause a variety of oral health issues. But braces are hard to clean, uncomfortable, and unsightly.
At Westwood Dental Smiles, we offer Invisalign invisible braces, which will get your teeth in line without the hassle of traditional braces. So don’t let uneven and jagged teeth make you hide your smile.
No matter what your situation, Westwood Dental Smiles can put that shining smile back on your face.
