Tackle Stains and Misalignment with Porcelain Veneers

September 30, 2013

porcelain veneersAre you so embarrassed of your smile that you hide it when you talk or laugh? Do the beautiful smiles you see on TV, at the movies, or in your favorite magazines just seem to make your feelings even worse? At Westside Dental Associates, a unique cosmetic solution can help you overcome these feelings to enjoy a better sense of self-confidence. It’s called porcelain veneers.

With porcelain veneers, Dr. Latner can help you tackle two common cosmetic issues: staining and flaws like misalignment or cracks and chips. What’s more, you can see fully customized results in just two appointments.

Here’s how the process looks.

First, Dr. Latner will talk to you about the changes you want to make during a special consultation appointment. Your porcelain veneers will be designed to reflect your goals and the shade and shape of surrounding teeth. Then, before you go, Dr. Latner will prep your teeth for your final veneers.

When those final porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll come back to our Los Angeles office to have them attached. Afterwards, you can go back to your normal schedule with your beautiful new smile completed and ready to show the world.

Are you curious about what porcelain veneers might do to your smile and your confidence? Let Dr. Latner answer your questions and recommend a treatment plan. Call us today. You want a beautiful smile and we can help. We offer porcelain veneers to patients from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West LA, and Mar Vista.

Correcting Overbites, Underbites, and Crossbites with Invisalign

September 27, 2013

InvisalignHow confident are you about the appearance of your smile? If you’re answer to that is, “Not very,” Dr. Latner of Westside Dental Associates offers Invisalign, an excellent cosmetic solution for treating overbites, underbites, and crossbites.

Invisalign isn’t the only cosmetic braces option available today, but it’s among the most popular and effective. And for adults who want to project a professional, mature appearance, the major benefit of Invisalign is that it doesn’t rely on brackets or wires to move teeth. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear trays to gradually move teeth into their ideal position.

Why should you straighten your smile? Because outside of making you feel less confident, teeth that are misaligned, crowded, or unevenly spaced can also make you more vulnerable to decay and gum disease, whereas straight teeth can significantly lower your risk of these.

How can you tell if Invisalign is right for you? Dr. Latner will complete a special oral assessment at his Los Angeles dental office. If it is right for you, we’ll work alongside the Invisalign lab to design your entire treatment.

Once you have your completed treatment kit, you’ll just need to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set.

Treatment with Invisalign is:

  • Comfortable
  • Clear
  • Quick

As you work on creating your straighter, more attractive smile, you can look forward to enjoying discreet care. What’s more, Invisalign’s trays can be taken out to eat, brush, and floss, letting you enjoy a normal diet and oral health regimen.

Do you have questions about Invisalign? Call Westside Dental Associates today to schedule you consultation with Dr. Latner. We offer care with Invisalign to patients from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West LA, Mar Vista, and beyond.

Teeth Whitening with Zoom!

August 22, 2013

teeth whiteningFew people have a naturally bright smile. That’s because so many things we run into on a daily basis can cause stains—things like coffee, tea, red wine, juice, and soda, for instance. Tobacco use also contributes, as does aging. All of which explains why teeth whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dentistry services offered by Westside Dental Associates.

Teeth whitening with Zoom! is easy and yields amazing results. With just one appointment, you can expect to see your smile brightened by anywhere between 6 to 10 shades.

How does Zoom! work?

It starts with us making sure you’re comfortably seated. We’ll put a protective cover over your lips and gums, and then apply the special Zoom! Whitening gel to your teeth. A low-heat lamp will activate the gel, which, over the course of an hour, will penetrate the enamel and dentin in your teeth to remove stains and discoloration. When we’re all done, we’ll finish your visit by applying a fluoride treatment to your teeth to give them special protection.

That’s all there is to it!

Call Westside Dental Associates to find out more about teeth whitening and our other cosmetic and restorative solutions. Dr. Latner whitens smiles from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West LA, Mar Vista, and beyond.

One-Appointment Cosmetic Bonding

June 13, 2013

cosmetic bondingMany patients dream of a more beautiful smile. For some, though, the expense or the inconvenience of multiple visits can be off-putting. But there’s one service that allows you to get the cosmetic care you’re looking for at a smaller price and in just one appointment—it’s called cosmetic bonding.

Cosmetic bonding is a great solution for patients who have a chipped or slightly misaligned tooth that they want you to restore. To do that, Dr. Latner will apply a putty-like material known as composite resin to the surface of the tooth. To make sure that your restored tooth matches the rest of your smile, the resin will be shaded to blend in.

When the resin has cured with a curing light, Dr. Latner will complete your procedures by sculpting and shaping it.

Caring for Your Restoration

Once your smile has been restored with cosmetic bonding, you might wonder how you can keep it looking beautiful. The answer is simple, just brush and floss like you normally would. If cared for properly, you can expect cosmetic bonding to last for 5 to 10 years.

Are you looking for an alternative to porcelain veneers that can help you enjoy better self-confidence? Talk to Dr. Latner of Westside Dental Associates about cosmetic bonding. Our Los Angeles team would be happy to answer any questions you might have. We serve patients from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West LA, Mar Vista, and beyond.

Two Options for Cosmetic Braces, But Which Is Right For Me?

May 23, 2013

InvisalignIf you’ve explored our site before, you may have noticed that Dr. Les Latner offers two options for cosmetic braces: Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. Both offer discreet care and are made to work quickly. But how can you know which one is right for you? Are they even comparable? That’s a question we’d like to look at for this post so you can have a clearer understand of how both work.

Two Cosmetic Options

Invisalign and Six Month Smiles can’t do the work of traditional braces. They’re cosmetic systems and are designed to fix crowding, slight misalignment, and other issues.

The way Invisalign does this is with a series of completely clear trays, not brackets and wires. Instead of having anything tightened, you’ll simply move to a new tray every two weeks, with each one bringing you closer to your goal. You can also take your trays out when you eat, brush, and floss. That means you don’t have to make any changes to your diet or your daily brushing routine. You do have to be committed to wearing your trays 22-24 hours a day, though, with a treatment time of about 12-18 months.

Treatment with Six Months Smiles takes less time than that—literally about six months. There are restrictions on what you can eat, though. What’s more, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, making it discreet if not completely invisible. But if you have a special event coming up, like a wedding, a job search, or another big event, Six Month Smiles can help you reach your goal faster than almost any other option.

Which One Is Right For You?

That all depends on your needs. The only way to know which is right for you is with a consultation appointment with Dr. Latner at Westside Dental Associates in Los Angeles. Call us today to reserve your appointment. We serve patients from Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West LA, Mar Vista, and beyond.

Get Ready for Summer with Six Month Smiles

March 29, 2013

Spring is here and that means spending more time outdoors with friends and family. With that being the case, the last thing you want to do is worry about how your smile looks. After all, not everyone has a naturally straight smile.

That’s why Dr. Latner and his team at Westside Dental Associates in Los Angeles offer a service like Six Month Smiles. With Six Month Smiles, patients have a simple, fast orthodontic solution that makes treatment more discreet.

That’s because Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires instead of traditional brackets and wires, which can stand out and mar a professional image. Within just a few months, Dr. Latner can help you move your teeth into their ideal alignment, giving you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Are you curious about how Six Month Smiles can help you? During a consultation at Westside Dental Associates in Los Angeles, we can help you understand your needs and whether Six Month Smiles is right for you.

Call us today to reserve an appointment. We can help you create happy, smiling memories that you’ll cherish for years to come.

Cosmetic Dentistry in time for Valentine’s Day

January 28, 2013

Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your confidence and look your best this February 14th, consider cosmetic dentistry. The cosmetic dentistry services Dr. Latner provides can help you whiten and straighten your teeth, creating a smile you’ll want to share with others.

Our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Our teeth whitening options include both Zoom! in-office whitening and a professional take-home whitening kit. Both produce professional results, but there are differences. Zoom! Whitening whitens teeth in just one appointment, while take-home whitening lets us brighten your smile in the comfort of your home, on your own schedule. For the best results, Zoom! in-office whitening and take-home whitening should be used together.

For adult patients who want a straighter smile, Dr. Latner provides different options. Invisalign is a great option. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear trays made of acrylic. Because Invisalign’s trays are nearly invisible, your care will be more discreet. What’s more, treatment is often faster and more comfortable. Dr. Latner also offers Six Month Smiles. If you’d like a straighter smile in just six to eight months, Six Month Smiles may be the right treatment option for you.

For patients who want a whiter and straighter-looking smile, porcelain veneers are a popular option. Veneers use thin pieces of porcelain to improve the appearance of front teeth. The result is a dazzling smile that looks naturally beautiful.

Which service is right for you? Is it one of these, or is it another service from the list above? For an answer to that question, call Westside Dental Associates for an appointment with Dr. Latner. Our team is dedicated to creating beautiful smiles for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
