Individuals who have been a part of the workforce for many years are now competing with younger men and women; and those who have been a part of a mass layoff throughout the recent months have visited my Beverly Hills practice in hopes to regain a more youthful and brighter smile. First impressions, after all, can either make or break a relationship – whether it is professional or personal.
Along with aspiring actors and models, those looking to get back into the workforce often inquire about cosmetic dentistry. During a consultation, I will evaluate the patient’s teeth and discuss the available options, after which a personalized treatment plan can be created. Typically, we treat any dental health problems before performing the cosmetic procedure(s); this helps to ensure optimal results. Some of the oral procedures include dental implants and dental bonding. Once the teeth are deemed healthy, the rejuvenation process may continue.
Most patients choose to undergo teeth whitening, either in our office or with an at-home treatment. When opting to whiten teeth at our facility, patients can anticipate a brighter, whiter smile in as little as one hour. Should you choose to obtain a gradual change, whitening trays and a professional bleaching product can be used at home; however, results may take up to one week to be noticeable. Another common cosmetic dentistry procedure is porcelain veneers, which are thin ceramic shells placed over the teeth in order to produce a straighter smile. Veneers can also be of great benefit to those who have crooked or stained teeth.
In addition, if you are in need of orthodontic care but want to avoid getting traditional, metal braces, you may be an ideal candidate for Invisalign ®. These are clear trays that are custom fit for your teeth and can be exchanged every two weeks in order to gradually straighten the teeth. The Invisalign trays must be worn at all times (they can be removed to eat and brush the teeth).
After these procedures have been performed, you may anticipate a brighter, straighter smile that may very well help you land that job. I strive to provide you with the best patient care and natural-looking results, and I look forward to helping you make a great first impression.
