Cosmetic Dentistry Compliments Plastic Surgery

As with the design and construction of any work of art, whether it is a painting, sculpture or novel many elements come into play to bring forth the artists desired final expression. Some art forms require a close collaboration between a number of artists as is the case with a film, symphony or play. Los Angeles Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, practicing in his Beverly Hills Dental Spa, enjoys collaborating with top cosmetic surgeons to create beautiful, natural smiles that compliment the surgeons work.

Cosmetic surgeons are striving to achieve balance, harmony, beauty and youthfulness. When they encourage their patients to also put themselves in the hands of a skilled, caring and gentle cosmetic dentist, their work is supported and brought to new levels.

Dr. Kourosh Maddahi recommends that people who are about to undergo plastic surgery, have their teeth and smile evaluated first. Often, if restorative dental work is found to be needed and is taken care of prior to the plastic surgery, the surgeon will have a very stable foundation to build upon.

As a simple example, by correcting misaligned front teeth lines that have formed around the mouth will often relax; and because the cosmetic dentistry has reshaped the teeth, the lips can take on a fuller appearance creating a new canvas upon which the plastic surgeon can create further.

If cosmetic dentistry is not done prior to the cosmetic surgery, patients often find that the newly enhanced state of their face now demands a dramatic elevation in the quality of their smile. Once again we see how all elements need to work together to create the perfect whole.

Cosmetic dentistry offers many options to enhance the smile including porcelain veneers, ceramic crowns, cosmetic re-contouring and re-shaping, tooth whitening, composite resin bonding, implants, etc. The range in treatment can span from the repair of a single chipped tooth to a full mouth reconstruction.

Just as breakthroughs in technology have significantly changed the operating base for cosmetic surgeons, cosmetic dentists can now utilize and enjoy cutting edge equipment, which help them to administer to their patients in much shorter time and with higher quality.

Dr. Kourosh Maddahi is always reaching for the most advanced equipment and procedures. To identify only a few of the innovative tools found at his dental spa – one can find digital x-ray technology, which reduces radiation exposure up to 90% over traditional methods; Cerec equipment which allows him to design and mill a natural-looking ceramic crown in under two hours; and an air drill which utilizes pressurized air and aluminum oxide (baking soda) to remove surface decay painlessly.

When two trained and experienced practitioners, such as a cosmetic dentist and a plastic surgeon, come together to create a finished product whose elements compliment and balance one another we find a high level collaboration worth its weight in gold because each specialist elevates the work of the other.

Professionals working in the health and beauty enhancement field must have an artists eye. When that is combined with the most progressive technologies, the opportunity to help people refine their uniqueness is without limit.

Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, continues to be at the top of his field because of his commitment to educating his patients, utilizing the safest and most efficient technology, applying high aesthetic standards and by collaborating with practitioners who share his values and goals.
