Outstanding Cosmetic and Elective Dentistry Options in Beverly Hills, CA
The term “biomimetic dentistry” sounds very futuristic, and this discipline is indeed advanced. In biomimetic dentistry, restorations are provided that do more than merely replace damaged or missing teeth. Instead, these restorations work with your existing natural tissues like pulp and enamel to endure for years and look incredibly natural.
Some of the cosmetic and elective options available from Dr. Hakim at Advanced Dental Care of Beverly Hills are outlined below:
Gingival grafting, or gum grafting, is an effective way to treat gum recession that has left exposed roots. Exposed teeth roots are neither healthy nor attractive. Dr. Hakim offers this treatment to help patients that have suffered from gum disease or other problems. He is always certain to use adequate anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
A crown provides reinforcement for a tooth that has several fillings or extensive damage. In fact, a crown covers almost your entire tooth and can help save you from losing the tooth in the future. Dr. Hakim offers tooth-colored crowns that blend in with your natural teeth.
When most people think of fillings, they think of a silver slug. However, Dr. Hakim has a more modern alternative, tooth-colored composite fillings. These fillings are strong, durable, and contain no mercury or other metal. Best of all, the white color effectively hides your filling from view.
A dental onlay is more extensive than a filling but smaller than a crown. Sometimes called “partial crowns,” an onlay covers a tooth cusp or sometimes even the whole biting surface. Dr. Hakim uses onlays to save teeth, prevent further damage, and give you a virtually invisible method of reinforcing a damaged or decayed tooth.
