Studies have shown that a smile can say a lot about us. An American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry sponsored survey asked Americans about the importance of a beautiful smile. They found that 99.7 percent of Americans see a beautiful smile as an important social asset with 74 percent responding that an unattractive smile could negatively impact someone’s chance for success at their career. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles Cosmetic Dentist, has created and enhanced smiles for almost to 25 years. He has found that transforming a smile often transforms a patient’s confidence and self esteem. The transformation starts with a simple and quick smile evaluation. “Smile evaluations are a key first step in not only determining what a patient’s dental needs may be, but also in exploring what a patients likes and dislikes about their smile. From there we can create a beautiful smile with a few simple procedures or more extensive dental treatments,” Dr. Maddahi said. Dr. Maddahi begins a smile evaluation in Los Angeles by examining a patient’s teeth and gums. He looks to see if the teeth are crooked, misshapen, damaged, worn or discolored. When he examines the gums he checks to see if there is any gum recession or if the gum line is too low, creating a gummy smile. He also checks for any gaps between teeth or missing teeth. Once the smile evaluation is completed Dr. Maddahi explains the dental options available to create a beautiful smile. And, by using Cosmetic Digital Imaging, Dr. Maddahi is able to show patients what their new smiles will look like before a procedure is even started. Some patients choose porcelain veneers to address chipped, crooked or misshapen teeth, while others select dental implants to replace missing teeth or teeth whitening to brighten discolored teeth.

Painless dentistry may seem like a dream to some, but at Dr. Kourosh Maddahi’s office painless dentistry is a reality. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles family dentist, has devoted close to 25 years to finding gentle and painless dental solutions for his patients. “Our mission has always been to provide state-of-the-art gentle dental care in a comfortable environment. We want our patients to feel relaxed from the moment they walk in the door knowing that they are receiving painless, high-quality dental care. We accomplish this by using cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment methods.” Gentle dental care starts with digital x-rays. These x-rays emit a fraction of the radiation of traditional x-rays and are ready to view in seconds on chair-side screens. The DIAGNOdent laser system is used in combination with the digital x-ray to detect small areas of decay that are not yet viewable on a dental x-ray. Mini cameras are placed in the mouth for close up views of the patient’s teeth and gums. When cavities need to be filled or periodontal issues need to be treated the new Waterlase MD Turbo system is used. This cool laser is able to address areas of tooth decay without damaging the surrounding tissue. And, unlike a traditional dental drill, the laser system does not generate heat or vibration so there is little pain or swelling after a dental procedure. Many patients find that they are able to have their dental treatment done with little or no anesthesia. Click here to view an interview with Dr. Maddahi regarding the Waterlase MD Turbo. Tools like the WaterLase MD Turbo, the DIAGNOdent laser system and mini-cameras set Dr. Maddahi’s office apart from most dental practices.

Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Los Angeles family dentist, uses innovative diagnostic technology to identify dental issues and general health issues for all his patients.

If everyone could have perfect teeth without ever having a dentist drill them it is possible that the dental health on planet earth would be in a lot better condition. After all, the prospect of sitting in a chair and having teeth drilled, smelling that unique smell that only a burning tooth can produce, is enough to deter most anyone. There are ways to fix teeth without the use of noisy, smelly, painful dental drilling. Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a high-tech dentist in Beverly Hills, uses this technology whenever possible.
Doesn’t it seem that half the people we know, if not more, have used cosmetic dentistry to improve their appearance? Is it vanity that moves people to spend the time and money to get a “new smile”? Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, works from his Beverly Hills dentist office and has had plenty of experience with why people elect cosmetic dentistry.
For sure, most people are not excited about going to the dentist. It is not just because they feel they have better things they would rather be doing, it’s actually a fear of the dentist that may keep them away. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, Los Angeles family dentist, with an office in Beverly Hills, wishes to change that.For sure, most people are not excited about going to the dentist. It is not just because they feel they have better things they would rather be doing, it’s actually a fear of the dentist that may keep them away. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, Los Angeles family dentist, with an office in Beverly Hills, wishes to change that. A survey was recently conducted by the National Institute for Consumer Education that found that 82% of people have a fear of the dentist. Of those surveyed, 68% said their fear is because of injections. It’s the needles and the pain of the injection that they resist. There were 53% of them who said that they do not like the post-operative numbness. “I have always wanted to revolutionize dentistry. We strive for the fastest, best results with the least pain”, explains Dr. Maddahi. “I research every newly released advanced dental tool, system, procedure and all new equipment, searching for solutions. In the past few years, there have been some revolutionary breakthroughs in dental procedures and equipment.” Anesthesia injections are most often needed to assist the high-speed drill that is employed to remove decay. Now there’s drill-free dentistry. Air-abrasion, a new technology, which acts like a mini-sandblaster, can accurately remove dental decay with a fine aluminum oxide (baking soda) powder. With air-abrasion there’s no vibration, no burning smell (the teeth never get hot), no whining drills, and no anesthetic required. At Dr. Maddahi’s office he pairs drill-free dentistry with DIAGNOdent, an advanced laser system that detects decayed areas prior to their appearance as a hole on the surface of the tooth. DIAGNOdent locates decayed areas that x-rays will not detect. Without this advanced dental tool, a dentist has to remove healthy tooth structure in order to clear even a tiny cavity in a tooth. This new micro-dentistry solution gently removes the decay, with the new air abrasion technique, and avoids any loss of healthy tooth structure. Just recently, Dr. Maddahi added another truly revolutionary new system, the Waterlase MD Turbo. “We are accomplishing our dentistry procedures faster than ever with less pain, less waiting and less recovery time. This accomplishes the highest standard ever in laser dentistry.” This brand new state-of-the-art laser works like a high-speed drill, but never touches the tooth. It uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water, performing dental work without any heat, vibration or pressure. The advanced Waterlase MD Turbo is a cool laser. The speed of this new high-tech laser is nearly equal to that of a high-speed drill. Traditionally, a laser was intrinsically heat based. Waterlase is the only cool laser used in dentistry – which therefore means no more burning to remove tissue and bone. No burning means less pain and faster recovery time. Many patients have found they can now get a cavity filled without the use of any anesthesia. This new laser is also used in the treatment of periodontal disease to significantly shrink inflammation. It is used in the crown lengthening procedure. This is now achieved with less recovery time and much less pain than earlier-used methods. Gum recontouring is also now far faster, with less pain and far more rapid healing. With these new tools and techniques, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi is accomplishing his ambition to provide faster, better dental procedure results with the least pain. His Los Angeles cosmetic dentist office is conveniently located in Beverly Hills. Call Dr. Maddahi today for a free initial consultation.
