California smiles can be improved in a single visit
When the smile is less-than-perfect, one may experience a lack of confidence or possibly even embarrassment. Cosmetic dentistry has a number of solutions for the various smile concerns that people may have. At Brentwood Family Dental, we believe that beauty should shine from the inside out, and that one of the primary features to achieve this is the smile. Using the highest quality materials and expert techniques, Dr. Jamil Alkhoury has helped hundreds of people feel better about their appearance.
Though many people consider porcelain veneers as the best way to repair their cosmetic flaws, Dr. Alkhoury may suggest the 20 Minutes Smile procedure. Using this treatment, he has designed gorgeous Brentwood, California smiles. Different from a veneer that is fabricated in a dental lab and completed over a few visits, 20 Minutes Smiles is exactly as it sounds.
The process of improving the smile could be referred to as a direct veneer process. A veneer is any type of coating that improves the outward appearance of an object. To alter the size, shape, color, or condition of a tooth beautifully, Dr. Alkhoury first performs minimal preparation that will allow the veneer material to adhere properly. The entire treatment is so non-invasive that it can be completed with no anesthetic.
Tooth enhancement begins with the application of a putty-like substance colored to achieve the best result. This substance is precisely sculpted into the size and shape that best complements surrounding teeth. Due to the high quality of material, the treated tooth can look multi-faceted and translucent, fitting in perfectly with the natural smile. Under light, the sculpted putty is cured, or hardened. In this process, material is also strongly adhered to the natural tooth structure. After polishing, the treated tooth will shine like natural enamel.
Your smile is a large part of your overall image. As such, Dr. Alkhoury is very serious about what can be done using 20 Minutes Smiles and other cosmetic dental treatments. This excellent procedure has helped a great many of our patients feel better about their smile. It is not, however, ideal for every situation. In order to develop the right treatment plan, Dr. Alkhoury listens as patients discuss their concerns and explain what they would like to achieve with cosmetic dentistry. The commitment to long-term oral care is also important, as this will dictate how long restorations last.
