Your smile is the first impression that others have of you, so it makes sense that you would want it to be bright, white and healthy. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, more than 99 percent of all American adults believe that a smile is an important asset for social situations. Perhaps that is why so many patients are electing cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smiles and boost self-confidence.
Did you know…
that cosmetic dentistry is more than just teeth whitening? Your cosmetic dentist is also capable of transforming your smile’s shape, color, alignment, as well as filling in gaps and discreetly restoring decayed or damaged teeth with tooth-colored fillings. In fact, modern advancements in cosmetic dentistry have made it possible for patients to achieve nearly perfect teeth with cosmetic enhancements and restorations that are virtually undetectable to friends, family and peers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
You may be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry if your healthy teeth have imperfections that you would prefer to be changed to enhance the appearance of your smile. It is important to recognize that esthetic dental treatments are not meant to alter your overall appearance, but rather to provide a positive change that compliments the health and natural appearance of your teeth. If you think cosmetic dentistry is right for you, contact your cosmetic dentist today to schedule a consultation.
What should I expect from my cosmetic dental visit?
Due to great strides in dentistry, cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry can overlap in a single visit. You can expect your cosmetic dentist to discuss health implications, as well as esthetics at your appointment.
What types of cosmetic treatments are available to me?
There are many types of cosmetic treatments available, from in-office teeth whitening to total smile make-overs. The types of treatments available to you will depend on your overall goals, but may include professional whitening, tooth-colored fillings, bonding, crowns, veneers, or dental implants.
What should I expect after receiving a cosmetic treatment?
You will receive special care instructions following your treatment. For example, if you have your teeth whitened you should avoid highly pigmented beverages and foods for several days to prevent staining. On the other hand, a dental implant make-over may require a significant amount of down time, as well as a temporary, but limited diet.
There are many ways to brighten, whiten, and otherwise dramatically improve your smile. Porcelain veneers, however are increasingly becoming one of the most popular solutions for people with teeth that need more elaborate measures to look their best.
Stained teeth and a chipped, worn smile can be caused by everything from accidents and tooth decay, to the heavy consumption of coffee, tea, and other dark colored beverages. While teeth whitening can often be quite effective for a certain amount of staining and discoloration, there are limits to its effectiveness. As the name implies, porcelain veneers go over your teeth to create a smile that is straight, clean, and bright. They are custom made, extremely thin, and cover the entire visible surface of a tooth.
Obtaining Porcelain Veneers
The process typically begins with a visit to Smile Atelier Beverly Hills for a consultation with a Dr Borzoo. Once it’s been determined that the teeth in question will benefit from veneers and the patient decides to get them, the next step is for the dentist to remove a very small part of the enamel, about half of a millimeter, around the tooth. (A local anesthetic may be desirable.)
The next steps are to bond a veneer to the tooth. During that process, the dentist will make a number of adjustments to make the enamels look as natural and attractive as possible. Once completed, the vast majority of patients are delighted with the outcome, which really can transform the dingiest grin into a genuinely beautiful smile.

For nearly two decades, lasers have been used for restorative and cosmetic purposes in dentistry. Today, lasers are approved for safety by the Food and Drug Administration, and they have become much more prevalent and standard in dental offices across the country. Lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. This energy can be used to achieve accuracy and precision when shaping the gums, biopsying oral tissues, removing tooth decay, and killing bacteria during a root canal. Lasers are even being used for elective procedures, such as to expedite in-office tooth whitening.
Did you know…
that dental lasers offer a long list of benefits for patients and dentists? Specifically, laser dentistry has grown in popularity among patients because it is highly effective for reducing inflammation, bleeding and swelling during and following dental procedures. Many patients also report experiencing less pain when lasers are used as opposed to drills. For this reason alone, many patients experience less anxiety and apprehension before and during their dental appointments.
Frequently Asked Questions
Could I benefit from laser dentistry?
Possibly. Laser dentistry is generally not used in examinations and cleanings. However, if you need a filling, root canal, biopsy, periodontal treatment or tooth whitening, a dental laser could provide a better overall experience and recovery. To find out if laser dentistry is right for you, schedule an appointment to meet with your dentist and discuss your options for treatment.
What should I expect during a laser dental treatment?
Your experience will be similar to those you may have had before, only without the pressure, vibrations and sound of a dental drill. Just as with traditional dental treatments, you will be anesthetized before having laser treatment. However, because dental lasers may help minimize pain, you may not require as much anesthesia as you would with a non-laser treatment.
Do I need to follow any special care instructions after being treated with a dental laser?
Your post-treatment care will not differ from the instructions you would have from a dentist using a drill or other dental tool. However, you may find that your recovery time is shorter and that bleeding is minimal immediately following your treatment.
If you have a great deal of gum tissue visible on your upper teeth, you may have what dentists call excessive gingival display, which is more commonly known as a gummy smile. At Smile Atelier Beverly Hills, our team of dental professionals can provide you with the latest treatments that can help you obtain a smile that will attract only the right kind of attention.
What Causes A Gummy Smile?
Gummy smiles are often caused by the way your teeth and jaw bone developed. Moreover, overactive muscles on your upper lip can cause it to curl up higher when you smile, exposing more of your gums. While a gummy smile is mostly a cosmetic problem, it could also be a sign of a misaligned or improper bite, which may require other dental procedures.
Smile Atelier Beverly Hills can eliminate a gummy smile with our state-of-the-art Lase technology. Laser dentistry works by combining laser energy and water to gently and safely remove the excessive gum tissue on your upper teeth. That way, our highly skilled and experienced dental professionals can improve your smile and reshape your front teeth with precision.
