Century Smile in Culver City is the site of the dental clinic, Century Smile, whose work has been seen by millions of television viewers on ABC’s program Extreme Makeover. Century Smile's talented team can straighten, whiten, brighten, and totally alter the appearance of patients’ teeth to allow them to smile without complexes or embarrassment. In some cases, the dental treatment at Century Smile completely alters the lives of patients.
A healthy and beautiful smile is no longer a luxury. With the average lifespan extending beyond the promised three score years and ten, the need to keep teeth in a healthy and functional condition is essential. Patient comfort is top priority at the Culver City clinic of Century Smile. Cosmetic dentistry, Century Smile, ensures complete relaxation assisted by the dulcet music, aromatherapy ambience, Tempur-pedi headrests, eye masks, blankets, and the joy of moist towels to freshen up. A waterfall soothingly runs in the background and Century Smile can provide oral sedatives for those patients who are nervous about dental treatment.
At Century Smile, digital imaging is used to demonstrate to patients what their smiles will look like after dental treatment. The Century Smile team can help patients with missing teeth or bridges and dentures to regain complete function and stolidity by the use of dental implants. Century Smile likes to establish a long-term partnership with a patient to ensure the immediate dental treatment required, and to plan for long-term care. Century Smile continues to investigate new technologies, materials, and techniques to improve dental health. Century Smile is licensed to administer sedatives to children and adults. Our dentists attend many seminars on implantology and cosmetic dentistry.
Century Smile in Culver City offers a broad range of dental services, including the simple treatments of fillings and crowns. Regular check-ups and consultations will assist the cosmetic dentist to focus on preventative dentistry, which saves patients time and money. At Century Smile, a registered hygienist will gently remove plaque build-up and check for any periodontal disease. If there are signs of gum disease, the hygienist will use Arestin, an antibacterial medication and supply hints for improved brushing. Periodontal disease is reversible, but neglecting it could lead to other health problems.
Century Smile can replace silver/amalgam fillings with high-quality, natural-looking, porcelain filling. Air abrasion is a soothing technique, which allows the removal of tooth decay without the use of needles or drills. Fine streams of particles are directed at the tooth and gently remove the decay. A night guard can be worn to prevent cavities and cracks when sleeping patients grind their teeth. The cosmetic dentists at Century Smile recommend the virtually invisible aligner to wear instead of the traditional wire braces. With the aid of Invisalign®, teeth can be straightened over a period and the aligner can be removed for brushing, eating, or special events. The aligners are changed every two weeks and this orthodontic treatment is FDA approved.
