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.

With cosmetic dentistry becoming more and more popular, many people have questions on how to choose the best dentist and what procedures are best for quick dental fixes. Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, recommends starting by finding a dentist whose skill matches your specific dental needs and then having a thorough evaluation. Before choosing a dentist, review their credentials and the types of continuing education they have taken. Be sure the dentist is using the latest techniques and dental tools. Also, check your state’s dental board to verify that his or her license is in good standing, often this can be done very quickly online. While Dr. Maddahi does numerous cosmetic dental procedures, he also stresses the need for regular teeth cleaning and check-ups as the basis for a healthy smile. “Teething whitening has become a very common procedure and I am often asked what causes teeth to become stained and discolored. Patients who drink coffee, red wine and even green tea can have stained teeth. Smoking can also cause staining. Aging and certain chemicals also can cause discoloration,” Dr. Maddahi explains. “With a simple in-office teeth whitening procedure, a patient can brighten their smile quickly, in just a few hours. And, for many of our patients, a beautiful smile starts when they have their smile whitened,” Dr. Maddahi explains. Many patients consult a cosmetic dentist to see what can be done to fix chipped or damaged teeth. For some, cosmetic re-contouring or bonding many be good options. During a re-contouring procedure, a jagged tooth is reshaped for a more natural look. A composite resin is be used to repair a chipped or damaged tooth during a bonding procedure. Bonding can also be done to change the shape and color of the tooth as well as close spaces between teeth.

A NEW BEVERLY HILLS SMILE IN MINUTES
Dental bonding could be an excellent corrective treatment for you if you have:
• Gaps between your teeth
• Small chips or cracks
• Discolored patches
The look of your mouth and smile can be altered to fit what would be pleasing to you. Cosmetic dentistry has a very simple definition. It is that branch of dentistry dealing with the appearance of your teeth. It handles the modification of your smile and anything having to do with how your teeth and gums look in terms of the length, shape, color, alignment and proportion.
In addition to asking for before-and-after photos and checking references, I would recommend checking to see if your Cosmetic Dentist is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). The AACD is an organization of Cosmetic Dentists who are committed to the highest levels of education and advancement in the area of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Usually, if the chip is not too big, bonding can safely be put on the tooth. Bonding is a resin composite material that is tooth colored. The bonding may have to be replaced because it can discolor or it may fracture off again. If the fracture is too big, then a veneer or a crown needs to be placed in order to make sure the tooth is protected
During a full mouth reconstruction, every single tooth in the mouth is reconstructed with either with the use of veneer or crowns. During the reconstruction all of the teeth are changed due to the alignment of the teeth, the bite or because of excessive wear of the teeth
