Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, and Dr. Toni Henderson can help make yours the smile that lights up the room. Offering an array of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including Zoom! ® teeth whitening , porcelain veneers, and dental bonding here at our Beverly Hills and Hollywood-area practice, Dr. Henderson is pleased to give you state-of-the-art care.
State-of-the-art technology in cosmetic dentistry is revolutionizing the way your teeth can look, and that's fully embodied in Zoom!® teeth whitening. Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Hollywood residents are accustomed to seeing models and movie-stars walking about town with seemingly perfect, bright teeth. You can achieve similar results as well!
Zoom!® teeth whitening is a teeth bleaching technology which can help you acquire teeth up to eight times lighter than they are now in a single office visit. Dr. Toni Henderson will coat the enamel of your teeth with a whitening gel and then heat them using a special lamp. The heat will break down the gel, allowing oxygen into the hard part of the teeth. The oxygen harmlessly bleaches the teeth, drastically reducing the appearance of tobacco, wine, tea, coffee, and soda stains.
Some patients may not be candidates for Zoom!® teeth whitening, including women who are pregnant, people who are sensitive to light, patients involved in photo-chemotherapy treatments, and/or patients who have been diagnosed with melanoma. However, there are other alternatives, which Dr. Henderson can discuss with patients who are not candidates that can also effectively whiten the teeth. Dr. Henderson also offers an at-home teeth whitening kit that works much the same way as the in-office treatment. Find out more about Opalescence take-home whitening trays below.

For bleaching done at home, at your convenience, Dr. Henderson will make a custom made bleaching tray that fits on your teeth. She will instruct you on how to place the gel in the trays and how to wear them. You may wear them during the day or sleep with them overnight. The trays work great alone but can also serve as a follow up to in-office bleaching. Having the trays at home will allow touch-ups when ever you feel the need to whiten your teeth again.
Over time, teeth can become chipped, stained, and misaligned in ways that can affect the look of your smile as well as your oral health. Porcelain veneers, available at our Beverly Hills practice, are thin layers of durable porcelain that are customized to fit directly over the tooth. Porcelain veneers require less removal of the tooth's surface than a full porcelain crown, and are tinted to match the color of your teeth.
Dr. Toni Henderson will create an impression of your teeth to tailor the veneer specifically to the damaged tooth. Within seven to ten days, your porcelain veneers will be ready to place at our office in Beverly Hills. The veneers will be bonded to the teeth and exposed to a special light which hardens the veneer to the surface of the original tooth, resulting in a strong, healthy-looking, and aesthetically pleasing tooth.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and can last for decades if taken proper care of, but they aren't completely impervious to damage. Patients should avoid using teeth fitted with porcelain veneers to bite down on hard or sharp foods, and should take care of them as they would the rest of their teeth. Porcelain veneers for our Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Hollywood region patients are a wonderful way to mask damaged or stained teeth, and bring a new sparkle to your smile.

Chips, gaps, and cracks in teeth can be quickly fixed with dental bonding. Hollywood and Beverly Hills-area patients can also have their teeth re-shaped or re-aligned with this effective treatment.
Dr. Toni Henderson will add a special liquid to provide a base for the tooth bonding resin. This liquid will allow the resin (composite) to adhere to the tooth. Then, Dr. Henderson will apply the resin, mold it to the correct shape, and harden it to the tooth using a high-intensity light. The resin is color-matched to blend with the rest of your teeth. With a quick polish of the tooth, the process is complete. Dental bonding can be achieved in about an hour at our Hollywood and Beverly Hills-area office. Better yet, dental bonding is painless and local anesthesia is generally not necessary. Bottom line: no shots!
The results of dental bonding can last for many years, and the procedure is a quick fix for a host of dental problems.
Contact our general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry office to schedule an appointment for dental bonding in the Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica region.
Many of the procedures outlined above can be used in combination with other treatments to give you a full smile makeover. Dr. Toni Henderson can whiten your teeth with Zoom!® teeth whitening, replace missing teeth with dental implants or dentures, close gaps with dental bridges, straighten your teeth with Invisalign® clear teeth aligners, and more. A complete smile makeover can be a fantastic way to take care of a host of dental problems, making you look great!
