West Hollywood DentistTeeth should not be neglected, but busy lifestyles will often mean lax dental habits. That is one of the reasons routine visits to our West Hollywood dentist are so important. If you find yourself forgetting to brush and floss each day, your teeth and gums may pay the price of improper care. Regular dental visits can catch developing problems before they can progress too far.
If you begin to notice that your gums are starting to bleed and they look red and swollen, you may be developing periodontal disease. A visit to the dental office will allow our West Hollywood dentist to evaluate the condition of your gums. In its beginning stages, gum disease can be treated with a scaling and root planing procedure. For more advanced cases, a form of oral surgery will be used to clear up the infection so that the gums will heal and be healthy again.
Restorative treatments through our West Hollywood dentist are a way to restore the appearance of the smile when teeth are missing. A dental implant is used for a single tooth that is gone, and multiple missing teeth will require the type of replacement that a partial bridge can provide. Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth.
Maybe you do not have missing teeth but do not like the way your teeth look. Cosmetic procedures can take a lackluster smile and completely transform it, which will transform your entire appearance. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that look natural and bond to the surface of the teeth to camouflage a variety of imperfections. Invisalign aligners are the invisible way for adults and teens to correct crooked teeth. Porcelain crowns serve a dual purpose. A crown will restore a damaged tooth and also look cosmetically appealing, thus enhancing the smile.
Our West Hollywood dentist is highly trained in all aspects of general dentistry. Your teeth and gums will receive the care that they require in order to look attractive and stay healthy. From routine visits to more complex dental procedures, all of your dental issues can be competently addressed.
