The buildup of problem stains on your enamel can leave your teeth appearing yellowed or dull. Even some of the healthiest foods available can contribute to lasting discoloration of your smile. Over the course of years, the addition of new stains can continue to harm your appearance. While there are multiple over-the-counter options to help you to improve the shade of your enamel, there can be complications with them.
Look instead to a professional whitening procedure to keep a trained eye on the process. Harsh bleaching agents can contribute to dentin sensitivity by weakening your enamel. Know that you are approaching your situation with care with the help of Dr. Koshki at Santa Monica Dental Arts in Santa Monica, CA. The proper approach can help you to smile brighter while maintaining the integrity of your enamel. Stay healthy with positive cosmetic dentistry with whitening that keeps your wellbeing in mind at all times! (more…)
One of the most common dental concerns is smile alignment. Where your teeth rest on your oral ridge can have serious cosmetic and medical implications. Firstly, a smile with crooked teeth and gaps can pose as an unnecessary roadblock in your social and professional life. If there is an available solution to improve your look, why wait in seeking treatment?
Secondly, misalignment can lead to major dental concerns, particularly in the development of troublesome bacterial buildup. When the teeth overlap or crowd, they form areas that are difficult or practically impossible for you to clean. These tiny microorganisms produce acidic waste that leads to the loss of the durable outer surface of the tooth. Maximize your ability to keep your existing teeth safe from bacterial infection by placing them in their proper location in your mouth. We proudly offer Invisalign® therapy at Santa Monica Dental Arts in Santa Monica, CA to help you improve your look. These slim aligners are nearly invisible and can revive your dental wellbeing!
