Cosmetic dentistry procedures and treatments are primarily focused on improving the aesthetic appearance of a person's smile. While the primary goal of general dentistry is to ensure oral health and address functional issues, cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance the overall look, shape, color, alignment, and symmetry of the teeth and gums.
At Danny Shiri DDS, we offer patients a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can address various dental concerns, such as stained or discolored teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, misaligned or crooked teeth, and gaps between teeth.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
Patients with missing teeth often opt for this restorative solution because it is the most reliable one. Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the tooth root. The implant then integrates with the bone to create a stable foundation for a false tooth to be placed. These replacement teeth are permanent and look and feel like natural teeth.
Also known as a tooth-colored filling, a composite filling is a resin material used to restore damaged teeth. This material is bonded to the affected tooth and polished to provide a seamless look.
This is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves bleaching the teeth to remove stains and discoloration. It can significantly brighten the smile and improve the overall appearance of the teeth.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells usually made from porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. They can correct the appearance of teeth that are chipped, stained, misshapen, or have gaps between them, providing a natural-looking and attractive smile.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
A More Balanced Smile
If your teeth are uneven or misaligned, you may find smiling in public or pictures embarrassing. Using veneers or other solutions, our dentist can align the teeth and improve the overall balance of your smile.
A More Youthful Smile
Cosmetic treatments like veneers or teeth whitening can dramatically transform your smile and help you look younger. Over time, certain lifestyle factors, medication, foods, and drinks may cause our teeth to become discolored and yellow. Drinking coffee, tea, and wine are some examples of things that can cause stains on the enamel layer of the tooth.
A Full Smile
If you have damaged teeth or have lost a tooth due to an accident, infection, or gum disease, our dentist can restore your smile using solutions like dental implants. Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. They fuse with the bone and act as artificial roots for artificial teeth. Implant-supported restorations look like natural teeth and can last for decades with proper care.
Cosmetic dentistry enhances the smile's aesthetics and can boost self-confidence and improve overall oral well-being. To learn more about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, visit Danny Shiri DDS at 6310 San Vicente Blvd, Ste 295, Los Angeles, CA 90048, or call (323) 935-9102.
