Cosmetic Dentistry in Santa Monica, CA
Cosmetic Dentistry can mean just about anything that can make you look better. It may involve all phases of dentistry including bleaching teeth, whitening teeth, dental implants, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, porcelain inlays or white fillings, cosmetic dental bonding, tooth bonding and can then branch out into the tempro mandibular joint or TMJ and Neuromuscular dentistry.
Teeth Whitening, Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain Crowns
These were all done on one patient for health reasons. Marilyn looks much better but she had porcelain veneers on her lowers to restore teeth that were broken off from Bruxism or Teeth Grinding. She had four decaying crowns on her upper teeth that had to be replaced and teeth whitening so her natural teeth could match the whiter color she chose for the porcelain crowns and veneers.
Senior Citizens That Only Show Lower Teeth
With age we show our lower teeth. Some people cannot even show their upper teeth at all. Alice came from Singapore to get her teeth treated in order to show upper teeth rather than lower teeth. It is a form of the Dental Face Lift ® which Dr. Sam Muslin says is the ultimate combination of treatments for each patient. She looks younger now!
Gaps Between Teeth
Sometimes the gaps are our personality or they are annoying. With just an artistic eye and composite resin Dr. Sam Muslin was artistically able to perfectly match the shade and shape and translucency of her natural teeth.
No Grinding Porcelain Veneers
Sure our teeth may be yellow and chipped but we don't want them ground down. The popular word for no grinding porcelain veneers is Lumineers by Cerinate. In this case, we did not use Lumineers because Dr. Muslin felt that feldspathic porcelain would be superior.
Uneven Shaped Teeth
Sometimes our teeth are very uneven and we may have a Peg Lateral, or a Congenitally Missing Tooth, or an Impacted Tooth and we want a natural smile. The shapes of our teeth need to be balanced in order to create the natural lip support and look of a healthy person. Your dentist needs artistic ability that must dictate to the lab the specifics for your look and personality.
