People who live in Elegant Dentistry’s home base know that there are two Hollywoods. One is the part of Los Angeles a few miles east and north of our Marina del Rey office. The other is the nickname for the gigantic entertainment business spread all over the area and around the world, but largely based in adjacent Culver City and West LA.
If you live in this area, we don’t have to tell you that these are exciting and unpredictable times and that, for many of us, having our most attractive smile in place may be especially important. Thanks to the end of the long Writer’s Guild and SAG/AFTRA strikes, this is now a frenetic place as TV shows and movies get back into production and both awards and pilot season loom.
For those of us who may have had to brave lean financial times, it’s definitely something to smile about, though it also means that competition inherent in show business is at full throttle. So, if the smile you see looking back at you in the mirror makes you worry about losing your competitive edge, either in your career or personally, a great dental office like Elegant Dentistry can bring Hollywood razzle-dazzle to even the dullest smile.
It’s no mystery why you rarely see yellowed or stained teeth on your TV. Most people who go in front of cameras for a living are taking advantage of the latest in teeth whitening techniques. While it might be tempting to go with inexpensive but sketchy DIY “weird tricks,” the not-so-weird reality is that many of the techniques involve potentially dangerous substances such as activated charcoal; even ordinary lemon juice can be dangerously abrasive when used by amateurs. Over-the-counter whitening techniques are safer, though they still carry some risk if misused. At the same time, using these products as directed might yield disappointing or almost absent outcomes.
Dental professionals, however, can make sure that you get the best treatment for your particular set of teeth and know how to apply the most effective techniques with complete safety. At Elegant Dentistry, we offer state-of-the-art teeth whitening that can either be performed with the use of take-home trays or performed in-office. In both cases, we can monitor outcomes to make sure that your teeth are white and more attractive than ever, while also maintaining precious tooth enamel.-
Crowns and Veneers
As we age, teeth may get worn down by all kinds of factors, most often night-time tooth grinding. Teeth may also chip or crack due to trauma or other causes. Moreover, certain kinds of staining can’t be entirely removed. In these cases, dental veneers can literally cover up the issues while bolstering the teeth. At Elegant Dentistry, we offer both porcelain (ceramic) and composite veneers to suit all kinds of smiles.
When damage is more extensive, our team also offers crowns. If you’ve ever had a root canal, you know that these are what cover the tooth root and that permanent crowns look and function like natural teeth. Crowns can also cover teeth that may be larger than a root but which have been severely compromised. Crowns are also the prosthetic portions of dental implants and permanent crowns can do everything a natural tooth can while looking better.
Because the Elegant Dentistry team provides its cosmetic dentistry patients with as many good options as possible, our crowns are available both in ceramics and zirconia to suit your preference.
