Invisalign® aligners straighten misaligned teeth without the ugly metal braces and painful wires. They are nearly invisible when being worn and they are removable when eating and brushing for greater comfort and improved oral hygiene and gum health.
Many foods and beverages leave dark, unsightly stains on our teeth. Yellowing is also a natural result of aging as the dentin under the enamel darkens with years. In-office bleaching processes can restore your teeth to gleaming, bright-white beauty with far superior results to any over-the-counter whitening products.
Bonding quickly and painlessly transforms stained, cracked, chipped, or misaligned teeth. A thin coat of resin is applied over the damaged or permanently stained tooth that is then shaped and hardened. It strengthens the tooth and is indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers create a perfectly uniform smile, masking stains, and correcting crooked teeth, gaps, and chips. They are made of thin, translucent porcelain material that slide over the teeth and are an excellent alternative to crowns. Veneers look amazingly natural and can last a lifetime with good dental care.
Obvious and unsightly metal fillings are quickly becoming things of the past. Today’s modern fillings are made of tooth-colored resin that is virtually invisible for a natural-looking effect.
Implant Dentist in Manhattan Beach
Dental implants can be used to replace teeth that have been lost due to disease or accident. A dental implant is a small screw (usually made of titanium) that is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of a missing tooth root. The jawbone then bonds with the screw, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth which are then secured to the top of the dental implant. There are single-tooth implants and implants that can support up to five crowns. Sometimes implants can be used to secure full or partial dentures, rather than having to use denture adhesives daily.
Before the development of dental implants, the only options with tooth loss were dentures, removable partial dentures, or bridgework. But these often prevented the proper chewing of food and often made people give up some foods they enjoyed. Also, sometimes bridges or dentures would cause pain and discomfort as they became ill-fitting over time. Today, dental implants give patients the opportunity to once again have the look, feel, function, and security of natural teeth. Please contact us to see if dental implants are right for you and talk with our implant dentist in Manhattan Beach today.
No one should forgo getting the dental treatment they need because of fear. Some people may have had a traumatic experience at the dentist’s office when they were children or a painful experience later as an adult. Or some may have been influenced by stereotypes in movies or by “horror stories” about the dentist from parents or friends.
Whatever the reason you may have some “dental anxiety,” we can help you overcome it so that you can get the important dental attention that your teeth and your health need. Our skilled practitioners can use commonly prescribed medications to help calm our patients. These mild sedatives are safe, having been used for many years and subjected to rigorous study. Usually administered by mouth, the medication leaves you fully alert and able to respond to questions (therefore, this process is called conscious sedation rather than complete sedation).
Please speak with us if you have any fear or anxiety about any dental treatment or procedure. We will be happy to discuss our sedation option with you so that you can feel calm and comfortable about getting the dental help that you need.
