Old and Modern Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry

Old and Modern Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry

Dentistry has come a long way since the day of dental implants made of bits of shells and toothbrushes made of boars hides. Today, our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist offers an extensive variety of leading-edge treatments that can restore and enhance your dental health.

Indirect Fillings

Also known as inlays and onlays, these porcelain fillings can be used to fill large cavities and reconstruct the tooth. First, the tooth will need to be prepared and impressions will need to be taken so that the dental laboratory can make an accurate restoration. Then, our dentist will securely bond the indirect filling to your tooth where it will subtly and durably restore the function and aesthetics of your tooth.

Dental Bonding

One of the most affordable procedures in cosmetic dentistry today, dental bonding or composite bonding can be used to correct several aesthetic issues, including chipped or broken teeth. Our dentist applies composite resin to the surface of the tooth, shapes it and cures it with a special high-intensity light before polishing it to a natural shine.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, the enamel on teeth tends to accumulate stains from foods, beverages and habits such as smoking. Teeth whitening can bleach away even the most stubborn stains and leave your teeth dramatically whiter and brighter.

Your options for a more attractive smile are virtually limitless. Talk to our dentist about your goals and preferences so that we can create a treatment plan that will result in your ideal smile. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
