There are a variety of ways crooked, damaged, or missing teeth can be remedied; and Dr. Toni Henderson believes nobody should have to suffer pain or self-consciousness because of dental problems. State-of-the-art dental implants, porcelain crowns, and Invisalign® teeth aligners at our office serving the Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Santa Monica region are just a few options, along with cosmetic dentistry and general treatments, that can transform your smile, making it look as natural and beautiful as possible.
A traditional dental crown can solve a host of problems, from lost fillings and root canals to cracking or fracturing of the tooth. Porcelain crowns, available to all our Hollywood and Santa Monica-area patients, are similar to porcelain veneers, however, crowns cover the entire tooth and provide more structural support to the damaged tooth. Porcelain crowns can also be used to cover decayed teeth, and even ones that are simply not aesthetically pleasing due to discoloration.
Dr. Toni Henderson will make an initial impression of your teeth, and tailor the crown to fit the exact dimensions of the damaged tooth. She will then fashion the porcelain crown to match the color of the rest of your teeth. To achieve this, Dr. Henderson works with only the best dental labs, which provide custom shading for your teeth. Porcelain crowns have been known to last decades with proper care, and can even help with chewing or speaking problems that may have been caused by the damaged tooth. One of the most common dental treatments, porcelain crowns can brighten your smile in just two office visits!

Gaps can be closed and missing teeth can be replaced through this traditional dental treatment. Porcelain bridges are composed of a replacement crown literally "bridging" a gap between two other crowns which are attached to the teeth surrounding the gap. One of the best things about porcelain bridges is they can fix a host of problems while drastically improving the appearance of your teeth. Dental bridges can also help with teeth re-alignment and strengthening.
Dental implants are revolutionary and safe solutions for the replacement of missing teeth. Dental implants, available at our office serving the Santa Monica and Beverly Hills area, provide a long-lasting alternative to dental bridges and dentures, in that they bond to the jawbone and actually become part of the mouth. Dental implants are usually constructed of titanium posts, which are inserted into the gap where a tooth or teeth are missing. The posts serve as artificial roots, and once they fuse to the jawbone, they will be capped with a porcelain crown. Dental implants can help with chewing and speaking problems, and are designed to look natural and provide strong structural support.
The dental implant procedure involves three separate stages: implant insertion; osteointegration (the time period in which the implant post will fuse to the jawbone); and the final attachment of the crown. Since dental implants involve oral surgery, patients who visit our office serving the Beverly Hills and Santa Monica area must have an oral screening to determine if the gums are healthy enough for the procedure.
There are many different types of dental implants available, including implant-supported dentures and bridges. Dr. Henderson will go over all of your options with you on your first visit.

If you'd like to straighten your teeth without becoming a "metal-mouth," Invisalign® teeth aligners at our Beverly Hills practice may be the solution for you. Invisalign® straightens the teeth using invisible, removable aligners that are virtually undetectable.
Invisalign® aligners are customized for your teeth. Each set of Invisalign® teeth aligners will stay on your teeth for two weeks, and will be removed while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. The teeth gradually slide into a straightened position with each Invisalign® replacement. Periodic checkups on your Invisalign® treatments at our Beverly Hills area office will ensure the progress of the aligners. Even better, Invisalign® treatments usually last only about nine to fifteen months, whereas traditional braces can last more than two years.
Some people have gone since childhood with crooked or misaligned teeth, never having them straightened because they feared the way traditional teeth straightening systems might make them look. Invisalign® technology is a quick, safe, and virtually invisible way of correcting a long-standing dental problem.
Contact our office to schedule an appointment for Invisalign®. Beverly Hills cosmetic, restorative, and general dentist Toni Henderson, D.D.S. would love to hear from you.
Dentures have been around for centuries as traditional replacements for missing teeth. With technological advances in restorative dentistry, they remain an effective and dependable way of improving comfort and appearance.
For people who have lost all of their teeth, a full set of artificial teeth can be an enormous help with chewing, speaking, and accentuating the appearance of their smiles. Full dentures are usually made of an acrylic resin and are custom-designed to fit the gums and specific contours of the patient's mouth. With today's technology, dentures look very natural and feel more comfortable than dentures of the past.
Partial or removable dentures may be the appropriate solution for patients who have missing teeth. Metal or tooth-colored clasps hold the dentures in place, allowing for improved speech and chewing. Partial dentures can also help prevent sagging cheeks and lips.
Restorative dentistry options such as Invisalign®, dental implants, and porcelain crowns are available at our office in Beverly Hills serving the Santa Monica and Hollywood area. Contact Dr. Toni Henderson today to schedule an appointment, and restore your teeth to create the bright shining smile you deserve!
