METAMORPHOSIS IN THE DENTAL OFFICE
Joseph M. Goodman, DDS, DMD, of the Beverly Hills Dental Group, offers a variety of the newest restorative and preventive dental services, each designed to extend the life of your teeth and total dental health. inmag.com caught up with Dr. Goodman and quizzed him on the latest in dentistry.
inmag.com: You say that metamorphosis is happening in your dental office?
Dr. Goodman: The answer is absolutely yes with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are small thin pieces of tooth colored porcelain, or laminates, that have made a significant impact in esthetic dentistry. In fact, several of the popular 'makeover' shows owe much of their success to the beauty of the porcelain veneer. The reason they are so popular is because a dentist can bond these laminates directly to the teeth without any underlying metal showing unlike a crown or a cap. The incredible possibility of modern dentistry to safely and predictably bond two very different materials together such as tooth and porcelain, can improve smiles that have crooked, wide spaced, uneven, overlapping or deformed teeth. You can make short teeth longer and dark teeth lighter. In fact, most veneers are made from porcelain, which resists staining from things like some foods and coffee
or tea, making your beautiful white smile will be just as white in ten years!
inmag.com: So it's possible to reshape a smile using this procedure?
Dr. Goodman: The possibility to reshape and recreate your entire smile (especially with crooked teeth) has given this procedure the name instant orthodontics, since they can be finished in as little as two weeks. Most orthodontic cases can take
as long as two years.
inmag.com: What are some of the newest procedures available?
Dr. Goodman: New advanced technology combines all the advantages of high-purity (yellow) gold, without sacrificing the strength of the lower gold dental materials. Years of research and patient satisfaction have proven that Captek crowns are durable, accurate, and what would be most obvious to the patient - attractive. These crowns also have a better impact on your gums. The gum is less likely to recede due to the high resistance of harmful bacteria and plaques. Finally, compromises need not be made to achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
