Have you ever wondered how did that model or movie star in the magazine you are reading get that smile? So white…so straight…so perfect!
Is it good genes? Well, the truth is that not everyone is born with a perfect, ever-lasting smile and high chances are that the smile you just saw has been designed by a professional cosmetic dentist. This is good news…It means you can get it too!
One of the most popular procedures performed in cosmetic dentistry today is dental veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin layers of custom made shells that are placed in the front covering of your teeth allowing them to look incredibly straight, even and very white!
Each porcelain laminate is a work of art, carefully crafted in a laboratory to fit your individual smile.The enamel of the teeth is minimally reduced to fit the veneers, but a new type of veneers called Lumineers does not require teeth reduction. Both porcelain veneers and Lumineers are extremely durable, lasting from 10 to 15 years. Come visit our Agoura Hills dentists to see which type of veneer is right for you!
Two of the greatest advantages of porcelain veneers over other types of cosmetic procedures are that they have a very real tooth appearance and that they resist staining. The cost of porcelain veneers depends on the number of teeth being treated. When your are considering the cost of porcelain veneers, you must take into account all of their advantages; including their longevity and attractiveness.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of dental and facial irregularities. Orthodontics can protect your bite, maximize your teeth's effectiveness in performing their functions and create a well-aligned smile, no matter what your age is!
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the tissues and bone that support the teeth.
Gum disease is generally caused by a buildup of plaque, which is a colorless and sticky layer of germs that naturally forms on teeth and gums. This plaque contains bacteria and other particles, which produce toxins that damage your gums.
People who grind their teeth can sometimes develop a serious problem with their jaw, which left untreated, can adversely affect the teeth, gums and bone structures of the mouth.
One of the most common jaw disorders is related to a problem with the temporomandibular joint, the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull, and allows your upper and lower jaw to open and close and facilitates chewing and speaking.
