How to Make Your Teeth Look Better

Cost of Veneers in Beverly HillsYou may have smiled in front of a mirror to look at your teeth. If you wondered if you could improve your appearance, you are not alone. Your smile impacts your career, social life, and self-confidence. Restorative and cosmetic dentistry has made a lot of advances over the last few years.

Bruce Vafa uses new techniques to improve the position, color, size and shape of your teeth. Smile Angels can also correct missing, damaged and chipped teeth. Due to technology, the process is less intrusive and much faster. You have a lot of options available you may not even realize exist.

Ways to Make Your Teeth and Smile Look Better

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a permanent base for artificial teeth. The cost of dental implants in Los Angeles is generally $1,500 to $7,500. Implants are an excellent solution if you have failing or missing teeth or chronic dental issues. Brice Vafa will provide you with a complimentary dental consultation to determine if implants are the solution you have been searching for.

Dental implants offer a comfortable and secure fit with the same functions as your natural teeth. Smile Angels use a titanium implant that will fuse with your jaw as time passes. The bond is durable and strong without the slippage you may experience with dentures. You will not have any difficulty eating or need to repair your implants on a regular basis.

Porcelain Veneers

You can magnify the beauty of your smile with porcelain veneers in Los Angeles. Veneers are constructed using ultra-thin, resilient and durable porcelain. Bruce Vafa will bond the porcelain veneers to the front of your teeth. If you take care of your teeth properly, they will last for numerous years. The cost of porcelain veneers in Los Angeles starts at approximately $1,000 per tooth.

Your porcelain veneers will be customized to feel and look the same as your natural teeth. This is a great option for hiding discolored, stained or missing teeth, repairing a chipped tooth or hiding gaps. The procedure can be completed in just two visits. During your first appointment, your tooth will be prepped. Your porcelain veneers will be placed during your second appointment.

Dentures

If you are asking yourself how can I make my teeth look better, the solution may be dentures. The cost of dentures in Los Angeles is usually less than $1,000. Bruce Vafa will create your dentures to replace any missing teeth. You may only need a partial set for the replacement of a few missing teeth. If you are missing all your teeth on the top or bottom, you will require a full sett.

No matter what type you require, they will be customized to ensure you receive an ideal fit and match for your teeth. Modern dentures are constructed of a hard resin created to last at least five to ten years with proper care. Dentures will provide you with a beautiful smile. They also offer your lips and cheeks support to help preserve the structure of your mouth.

Dental Bonding

If you have a discolored, cracked or chipped tooth, the solution is dental bonding in Beverly Hills. The result is a dramatic improvement in your smile. Bruce Vafa will apply a composite resin in the same color as your tooth to repair the damage. Bonding is a lot less expensive than either veneers or crowns. Smile Angels use shade guides to determine the best possible color match for your tooth.

Your tooth’s surface is roughened. An application of a special liquid ensures the bonding agent will adhere to your tooth. The composite resin is applied over the liquid. Your tooth is then shaped or molded prior to being hardened using ultraviolet light. If you need additional shaping, your Los Angeles dentists can oblige once the resin has hardened.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening in Beverly Hills is an effective process to lighten the color of your teeth. Bruce Vafa makes certain none of your tooth surfaces are removed. If you are like most people, your teeth are not naturally bright white. As you age, your teeth will most likely become somewhat discolored. If you drink coffee, red wine or tea or smoke, your teeth can easily become stained.

Tartar, tiny cracks and specific antibiotics can also result in unsightly stains. Your gums are protected with either a gel or a rubber shield. A special tray is then used for the application of the whitening agent. The majority of products contain carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. As the oxygen penetrates the enamel on your teeth, the color will become lighter for a gorgeous smile.

Orthodontics

If you have specific irregularities in your teeth, you will need to see an orthodontist. Orthodontics address numerous issues including:

  • Bad bites or malocclusions
  • Straightening teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Protrusion of the upper teeth
  • Spacing
  • Crowding
  • Misalignment
  • Openbite

If your teeth require straightening, there are several different types of braces available. Modern braces are far more efficient than the braces of the past. The options include traditional braces, Damon braces, ceramic braces and Invisalign.

How to Fix a Gummy Smile

There are four basic ways to fix a gummy smile available in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. There is a chance you will not require surgery. The options include:

  • Botox: Botox can decrease a pulling effect by enabling your lips to rest properly over your gum tissue.
  • Lip Lowering: Repositioning your upper lip will decrease the exposure of your gum line.
  • Crown Lengthening: Your bone can be modified through the removal of gum tissue. A longer crown appearance is established by re-contouring your gum line.

Gum Leveling and Contouring: Excess gum tissue will be removed around your teeth.

My Teeth are Small What Can I Do?

The best option for correcting small teeth is veneers. To learn the options available, contact Bruce Vafa for a complimentary consultation. There are several cosmetic procedures available for improving your smile. Once the cause is determined, the correct option will be recommended for correcting your small teeth. Your options include:

  • Dental Bonding: Dental bonding offers a lot of the same advantages as veneers. Bonding maybe your best option if you have enamel erosion or weakened teeth.
  • Veneers: Veneers are porcelain shells used for enhancing a small smile due to undersized teeth. When you smile, your teeth will appear elongated. Veneers are made of incredibly strong material and customized for your specific needs.
  • Gum contouring: If your small teeth are actually the result of excess gum tissue, gum contouring will typically be the most effective solution. Your dentist will use our advanced diode laser to trim away a minimal amount of gum tissue. We can also combine gum contouring with another procedure, such as veneers.
  • Porcelain crowns: In most cases, we will preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Therefore, we will not typically recommend crowns as a cosmetic option. However, if you have very weak or damaged teeth, crowns can enhance both your appearance and your dental function.

How to fix Crooked Smile or Teeth

While the best solution will be based on the extent of the issue as well as your overall goals, there are several treatments that can be performed to address crooked teeth:

Invisalign: Invisalign is a system consisting of aligner trays created to straighten teeth. The aligners are constructed of a nearly invisible, BPA-free plastic. The result is a faster, more comfortable and discreet treatment for crooked teeth. Invisalign offers an ideal alternative to traditional metal braces. The system addresses the concerns of both adults and teenagers with an almost invisible solution.

Porcelain Veneers: If your teeth are only slightly crooked, the solution might be veneers. Although veneers will not actually fix your teeth, they will fix a crooked smile. Any issues you have with the tooth will be hidden from view.

Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is very similar to veneers. The idea is to hide any dental imperfections. The difference is bonding is far less expensive. Both procedures will improve the look of your tooth.

The Cost to Fix All Your Teeth

Your total cost is dependant on the specific issues you are experiencing and the necessary procedures. If you need veneers or full mouth implants, your cost will be higher. If your teeth can be repaired with bonding, by filling cavities or whitening, your expense will be much less. Your best option is a complimentary dental consultation with Bruce Vafa.

The only way to be certain what is necessary for fixing your teeth is by consulting with a dental professional. In many cases, the repairs required are less substantial than the person thought.

The Final Word

Due to the advances in both dentistry and technology, there is no reason to live with an undesirable smile. Bruce Vafa will examine your teeth to determine exactly which procedures are necessary. You will also be provided with the cost of the work. Whether you only desire a few small changes or require full implants, you will like your reflection in the mirror.
