Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist Sees Increase in Reconstructive Dentistry Cases

October 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
LOS ANGELES, BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIAó As more people become aware of modern advances in reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry in Beverly Hills, they seek the services of cosmetic dentists to create natural-looking, healthy smiles. Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Anthony Mobasser, who has worked in the field for more than 27 years, recently has seen an increase in patients from Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, as well as from outside the country, seeking his reconstructive dentistry services.

ďAbout eighty percent of my new patients are requesting these services,Ē Mobasser said.

Reconstructive dentistry is the practice of reconstructing a personís teeth, gums, jaw, bite or any combination of these. It is more extensive than cosmetic dentistry and often involves all the teeth, as opposed to just the teeth seen when a person smiles, Mobasser said.

One common procedure Mobasser has performed numerous times recently is adding porcelain to teeth that have deteriorated due age, excessive grinding or clenching.

As people age, their teeth become worn and that makes the distance between the nose and chin closer, Mobasser said. When performing reconstructive dentistry, the teeth are built up again to increase that distance between nose and chin, giving the face a more youthful appearance. The end result is raising the bite to the original bite when the patient was around 18 to 21 years old.

Mobasser first seeks to educate patients on the importance of repairing worn teeth and the available options, he said. Another primary concern for Mobasser is the finished product, the longevity of the treatment done and ensuring that patients keep their teeth for the rest of their lives. Of course, having the teeth look as bright, natural and youthful-looking as possible also is a goal.

For that reason, Mobasser combines the aesthetics of cosmetic dentistry with the necessity of reconstructive dentistry to generate the best possible results for the patient.
Damaged and worn teeth are more than just visual detractions. They can affect the alignment of other teeth, and they can impact phonetics and prevent patients from chewing their food properly, which can lead to digestive issues. It also can cause halitosis, or bad breath.
