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.

Cosmetic Dentistry Plays A Major Role In Maintaining A Youthful Look

The beauty industry, ranking as one of the top industries in the world, is propelled by the quest to maintain the impression of youth for as long as possible. Which brings us to consider what specifically contributes to a youthful appearance; what are the elements and conditions?

The highly respected Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, working out of his Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist spa, utilizes efficient cutting-edge technology and refined aesthetic standards to help his patients achieve and maintain natural, beautiful smiles; contributing significantly to their overall impression of youth.

If we look at a person as a large canvas, we see that many elements are working together to communicate a unique visual story. Their skin, hair, teeth, eyes, muscle tone, posture and physical agility come into play. Each of these responds to the effects of aging and when attended to and improved will help us look younger longer.

The ultra violet rays of the sun cause a range of damage from wrinkles and sunspots to cancer. We now are aware of the wisdom in using sun block on our skin, wearing a hat and sunglasses to protect our eyes as well. Erasing or diminishing the damage to our skin resulting from sun exposure can remove years from our appearance.

A good diet including fruits, vegetables, healthy oils and ample amounts of water will most definitely keep the skin fed and moisturized, reversing a dry and dull-toned look. Dermatologists, with new advancements at their disposal can help us reduce wrinkles, blemishes and the effects of the sun. Cosmetic surgeons can address wrinkles, sagging facial muscles, excess skin and hollowing facial planes.

If the hair framing a persons face is dry, limp and lacking in luster it does not register a youthful and healthy condition. Again, good nutrition and hygiene have a profound effect. Regular haircuts and trimmings eliminate dead growth and allow the hair to move and flow. The design of a haircut and how it interplays with the structure of a persons face can help pull attention to their most attractive facial feature.

One of the most dramatic improvements in a persons appearance, reversing the negative visual impact of aging, is the enhancement of their smile. As teeth age, they often become yellow, grey or irregularly colored. In addition, some of our favorite foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, tomato-based foods, red wine and berry pie will cause our teeth to look dull and stained.

Teeth whitening is inexpensive, fast and pain free and is the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry procedure. Beverly Hills tooth whitening specialist, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, uses the leading whitener, Zoom! Advanced Power Plus Chairside Tooth Whitening System. In less than two hours, reclining in a comfortable chair, Dr. Maddahis patients have their teeth whitened up to eight shades lighter.

To repair chipped, broken, uneven, poorly spaced or missing teeth, Dr. Kourosh Maddahi has many options at his finger tips. His California dentist practice offers porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, implants and composite resin bonding which all contribute to a beautiful, natural smile and an overall expression of health and youth!
