Not sure where to start? Here are the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, each of which Dr. Mobasser can help you achieve.
Teeth Whitening is the Most Sought After Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments in Los Angeles
One of the first things people notice about you is your smile and having clean, white teeth makes a great first impression. This is by far the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment and one that is not quite as invasive as some of the others. There are many home kits for whitening teeth, but an in-office treatment often achieves more noticeable results, up to nine shades brighter and whiter.
Porcelain Veneers Can Transform Your Entire Face
If you have stains that can’t be erased with whitening or you’re facing issues like chips and cracks, porcelain veneers might be the answer. The veneer is a lab created covering that adheres to your natural tooth, creating a straight, even and white smile, no matter what’s underneath. Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years so you may have to have them replaced at least once during your lifetime. This is perhaps one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for transforming the look and feel of your smile.
Clear Braces are Gaining in Popularity
No one wants to smile with a mouth full of metal, which is why invisible braces are becoming more mainstream. The trays are swapped out every few days to a week and they slowly align your teeth, closing gaps and straightening each of your teeth. Clear braces are similar in cost to traditional ones so they make a good alternative for you if you don’t want visible devices in your mouth. You may have to use rubber bands along with the clear trays for the best results and it’s important to follow the directions closely for the best results.
Gum Contouring Helps Even out Your Smile
Also called gingival contouring, this treatment involves sculpting and shaping your gums to treat a “gummy smile.” If you have an excessive amount of gum, whether for structural reasons or simply genetics, contouring can help even things out and keep you from feeling self-conscious when you smile. Gum contouring can be done in one small area or your entire mouth so talk to Dr. Mobasser about what makes the most sense for your needs.
Direct Composite Bonding is a Permanent Choice That Many People Love
This treatment involves permanently adhering veneers, crowns or filling to one or more of your teeth. It’s popular because it can help repair chips, cracks and gaps between your teeth so that you have an even smile. This is the ideal choice for many dental concerns and Dr. Mobasser can help you determine if it’s right you. You can have one tooth repaired or all of them, but you can also opt for composite bonding for the simple reason that you don’t love your smile. They serve a double purpose – boosting the appearance of your teeth and increasing the function of them at the same time.
Porcelain Crowns Repair Damaged Teeth
Also called caps, porcelain crowns are the top choice for repairing damage to one or more of your teeth. That makes them both a restorative and cosmetic option, much like composite bonding. Some people choose them for functionality, while others choose them to makeover the way their smile looks. For cosmetic purposes, porcelain makes more sense than the silver or gold ones that are also available. They’ll blend in with the color of your tooth so they’re nearly invisible. They may not be viable on some teeth but dental crowns are a fantastic option for front teeth and those that can be seen when you smile.
Dental Implants are One of the Top Choices in Cosmetic Dentistry
Perhaps the best option when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, implants offer a high degree of durability and strength, closely mimicking the function of your teeth. At the same time, dental implants can be used to transform the look of your mouth too. They’re a permanent solution for the loss of one or more teeth and are surgically implanted into your bone to hold them in place. This treatment in considered invasive and requires some time for recovery so it’s important to plan well when choosing dental implants.
