A Whole Body Approach to Holistic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is the process of improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums and smile. Although the American Dental Association (ADA) does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a formal specialty, most cosmetic dentists are held in high regard because of their extensive education, training, and experience in improving the aesthetics of a person’s oral appearance. Cosmetic dentistry procedures differ from general dentistry or restorative dentistry in that they are elected as opposed to required. Cosmetic dentistry combines the oral health benefits of general and restorative dentistry with the added dimension of art to give patients the functional, beautiful smile they have dreamed of. The latest advancements in dental technology have allowed cosmetic dentists to use materials that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing. The amount of additional training cosmetic dentists undergo allows them to blend both art and science into smiles that are healthy and beautiful. Materials such as porcelain or composite materials are closely matched to resemble the look and feel of your original teeth, giving your teeth and smile a natural look that will enhance your oral appearance. Cosmetic dentistry has also taken leaps in using less invasive techniques that conserve as much natural tooth as possible. These practices, combined with advancements in natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials, make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than in years past. In addition to these advancements, Dr. Boyajian can perform many procedures in his Beverly Hills office that used to require referrals to other specialists. The need for patients to see multiple dental care providers and experience multiple trips has been replaced by more convenient and advanced procedures and has reduced recovery time.
