If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers might be the rapid, durable solution that you�ve been looking for. Dr. Rassouli will help you decide if porcelain veneers are right for you after conducting a thorough dental examination and discussing your cosmetic goals.
Veneers are individual pieces of thin porcelain that are custom-shaped and colored to resemble natural, healthy white teeth. The procedure for fitting and applying veneers usually entails two visits to the Center for Oral Health. During your first visit, Dr. Rassouli will remove a thin layer of the surface enamel on each tooth to be treated. He will then make a precise mold of these teeth, to be used as a pattern upon which the veneers will be based.
After about a week, the completed veneers will be returned from the lab and will be ready for application. Using an extremely strong bonding material, Dr. Rassouli will attach a veneer to the front of each tooth. In this manner, numerous dental imperfections can be masked; small gaps and chips are filled, and misshapen or discolored teeth will take on an enhanced appearance.

Before and after photos of Dentures
If you are missing one or more teeth, you will be presented with several options to replace the tooth. Dentures are a time-tested solution that have recently benefited from stunning advances in dental technology. Today�s dentures boast a comfortable fit, resilient construction, and an appearance that is nearly indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth.
If you are only missing one or a few teeth in the same location, a partial denture can help to restore your bite and improve the appearance of your smile. They also serve to protect the alignment of your mouth by acting as a �placeholder� so your other teeth don�t shift around.
Partial dentures are generally made from porcelain false teeth that are attached to metal clasps. These clasps attach to surrounding healthy teeth to hold the denture in place. During your consultation, ask your dentist about the cosmetic options that are available to conceal the appearance of your denture�s metal clasps.
A full set of dentures can help you to talk and chew normally as you did before your tooth loss. They will also fill out your face and help to eliminate the "sunken" look that is common with excessive tooth loss.
To fit you for full dentures, Dr. Rassouli will first give you a thorough dental examination to evaluate the health and strength of any remaining teeth. If you require extractions, these will be completed and the mouth allowed to heal. Then, you will return to the office to have a precise mold made from your mouth. This mold will be sent to the lab so they can create dentures that fit snugly over your gums.
Because dentures have such an impact on the quality of your life, Dr. Rassouli will make every effort to get them just right before he gives them to you. Adjustments to the appliance will be made over the course of a few try-in appointments, and when they are ready, Dr. Rassouli will give you all the instruction you need to care for your new teeth.
Depending on your individual situation and the health of your mouth, you may be a good candidate for implant-retained dentures. Instead of simply fitting over your gums, these dentures are secured by way of implant posts that are attached to the bone underneath the gum. Many patients find that these dentures have fewer performance limitations than do traditional dentures. Contact the Center for Oral Health today to learn more about your denture options.
Before and after photos of Implants
Although denture technology has advanced far beyond its previous limits, dental implants have become the preferred method for tooth replacement. Implants resemble natural teeth both in appearance and function, and can help to keep your mouth healthier over time.
Every tooth in your mouth is supported by your jawbone. When a tooth is lost, the bone begins to be reabsorbed into your body, causing further dental decay and tooth loss. It is the goal of Dr. A. Anthony Rassouli and Dr. R. Jay Rassouli to maintain as much natural bone as possible; therefore, they favor dental implants whenever possible.
During your first visit to our office, the doctor will conduct a full dental examination to determine how healthy your gums, teeth, and jawbone are; this exam will help him to decide whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you and he settle on dental implants, you will have your surgery scheduled for a later date.
Implant post surgery will be completed while you are under general anesthesia; during this procedure, titanium support posts will be firmly secured into your jawbone. Over the next three to six months, the bone will grow around and into the posts, a process known as osseointegration. Once the implant sites have fully healed, you will return to the practice to have your new replacement tooth fitted onto the implant post.
If you are missing one or more teeth, or have natural teeth that you believe could be improved with cosmetic dentistry, contact the Center for Oral Health today to schedule a consultation.
