Carlsbad, CA dentist provides customized cosmetic services
Does your smile look yellowed and dingy? Perhaps a specific tooth is dark, broken, or missing? Are your teeth crooked, crowded, or unevenly spaced? Do you hide your smile with a downturned head, protective hand, or bushy moustache? Dr. Al A. Fallah provides cosmetic services at his Carlsbad, CA office to restore confidence in your smile. As a holistic dentist, you can be sure he uses only biofriendly materials and techniques to get your grin gleaming.

Treatment options from cosmetic dentist in Carlsbad, CA

In Dr. Fallah’s care, a cosmetic consultation begins with your wish list. At this stage, your opinion is of utmost importance. This is your chance to explain exactly what you like and do not like about your smile, and to describe your ideal outcome. The doctor takes photos of you laughing and smiling to aid in discussion of color, spacing, crowding, dental damage, and gaps. You will also look at smile catalogs.

If you have not been a regular patient or have not had a routine checkup in a while, Dr. Fallah performs a thorough examination of your mouth. Dental issues such as tooth decay or gum disease must be addressed before cosmetic services can be administered.

Then, he explains each option for treatment to achieve your aesthetic goals. With an ethical approach of full transparency, he explains details of procedures, number of appointments required, realistic expectations, and cost. Together you arrive at a treatment plan that is right for your unique situation. Dr. Fallah may even use digital smile imaging software to give you a preview of your new look.

Personalized smile makeover

Personalized smile makeover Dental veneers feature prominently in cosmetic dentistry. These thin shells of lustrous porcelain have the translucency and light reflecting qualities of natural tooth enamel. Veneers are precisely shaped to improve the appearance of:
  • Discoloration that does not respond to professional bleaching.
  • Imperfections in enamel - fractures, chips, grooves, pits, and bumps.
  • Minor misalignment (the look of straight teeth, without orthodontic treatment).
  • Uneven spacing and gaps between teeth.
  • Teeth that have unusual shape, size, or signs of wear.

Dr. Fallah takes extra steps to ensure that veneers satisfy your desires. Initial information - impressions and measurements - is sent to a trusted dental lab where a three-dimensional wax mock-up is created. This gives you an idea of how veneers will look.

Then teeth are prepared. A small amount of surface enamel is removed as each tooth is shaped. This allows veneers to seat snugly at the gum line and look natural. Temporary veneers are molded chairside from composite resin bonding material or fabricated while you wait with CEREC CAD/CAM milling technology. They are bonded in place to give a first-hand look and feel for treatment. At this stage, virtually any adjustment can be made.

When you are fully satisfied, impressions are taken again, with the temporary veneers intact. The culmination of this data becomes the blueprint for an improved smile. This method takes a little longer, but there are no surprises - you see and approve the change before final veneers are made by a dental ceramist who is truly and artist.

"How many veneers do I need?" That is a common question early in the smile makeover process, and the answer depends entirely on you. Most people naturally want a bright, even smile with as few veneers as possible for cost containment. However, this can require a lifetime commitment to bleaching, to keep natural teeth as white as the selected veneer shade. In addition, dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, and bridgework do not respond to bleaching, so they may not match veneers. A beautiful, natural-looking smile usually requires veneers on the four, six, or eight teeth that show most readily when you smile.

Full mouth reconstruction - cost vs. value

Full mouth reconstruction - cost vs. value Full mouth reconstruction is a step beyond a smile makeover. While there are certainly cosmetic elements, full mouth reconstruction involves resolving all issues with:
  • Trauma or breakage.
  • Untreated tooth decay
  • Ill-fitting or unattractive restorations, including mercury-laden amalgam fillings.
  • Bite problems.

The goal is to restore full, comfortable function in a smile that looks terrific. The cost of full mouth reconstruction can be substantial, but quality of life improvement far outweighs the expense.
