Studio City Dentist
If you have problem teeth and develop dental issues easily, then you realize the importance of good dental care. But even if you have strong teeth that do not seem to be plagued with many dental developments, you will still need to see our Studio City dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. Once or twice a year visits are important to keep teeth and gums healthy and prevent the development of any future problems.
What if you have strong teeth but they are not as bright as they should be? A teeth whitening procedure will remove stubborn stains that brushing may leave behind. This treatment will also whiten your teeth, greatly enhancing your smile. Our Studio City dentist has other cosmetic treatments that can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are one of those treatments and will do a very nice job in hiding imperfections such as spacing and tooth formation irregularities, chipping and wear of the teeth and permanent discoloration marks.
If you have extensive damage to a tooth, either through decay or injury, and it needs to be extracted, our Studio City dentist will use a dental implant to replace the tooth. And if you have more than one missing tooth, a partial bridge will be used to replace them. Dental devices such as implants and bridges look like natural teeth and are very durable. No one will be able to tell that they are not your original teeth.
If periodontal disease should develop, you will want to get prompt treatment before it can do any damage. Scaling and root planing will work if the infection has not yet hit the bone. Surgical techniques, such as a pocket reduction, will be used if the bone is involved.
Any cavities you may have will benefit from a filling of composite material which is tooth-colored and will not be detectable. Composite fillings would also be beneficial in replacing any old silver mercury fillings you may have. Whatever dental situations may exist, our Studio City dentist can address them all in a professional and comfortable manner.
