The Most Refined Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic Dentistry is everywhere. There is no shortage of people claiming to be qualified to provide cosmetic procedures such as veneers and smile makeovers.
However, the reality is that most patients are not satisfied with their results and are growing increasingly concerned about having cosmetic procedures for fear of losing teeth or having more problems.
The truth is that cosmetic dentistry is very difficult, requiring mastery in multiple disciplines including facial esthetics, digital planning, morphology, adhesion, function and occlusion. The results of your treatment are completely dependent on the training, experience and knowledge of your cosmetic dentist. Very few dentists are trained extensively to provide cosmetic dentistry to the highest level possible. Dr. Nejad is an expert cosmetic dentist, teaching concepts in planning, smile design, treatment and the biomimetic cosmetic approach. He is widely recognized and respected by his peers and known for his meticulous precision and attention to every detail. He has completed smile makeovers on celebrities, royalty, international executives and peers. Take a look at some of the many reasons our cosmetic dentistry is truly in a category of its own.
Digital Smile Design
The smile needs to fit the features of the face. To achieve the absolute best results, every cosmetic smile makeover requires a design to determine the ideal size, position and shape of the teeth to be in harmony with the face, lips, eyes and facial flow. Using photographs and 3D impressions, we are able to precisely plan every detail for your smile and simulate the results prior to beginning treatment. This powerful tool helps us achieve predictable and consistent results and avoid complications due to poor planning. Dr. Nejad has been utilizing and teaching these techniques for 10 years and is a pioneer in emerging technologies in this field.
Biomimetic - Cosmetic Approach
The biomimetic-cosmetic approach is to preserve as much tooth structure as possible and restore teeth with the most natural looking restorations. This is in contrast to the traditional approach which involves removing a lot of additional tooth structure and often providing restorations which look bulky, opaque and unnatural. A combination of precise planning, advanced materials and scientifically proven adhesive techniques allows us to provide beautiful smiles without all the risks and fears associated with drilling teeth for veneers and smile makeovers. Dr. Nejad is a leader in this approach and has been teaching these concepts and techniques all around the world.
Natural Shape and Texture
The best cosmetic dentistry replicates the most beautiful examples of teeth found in nature. Unfortunately, the anatomy and shape of teeth being used in cosmetic dentistry are bulky, over-contoured, and appear fake and man-made. Surprisingly, many dentists and technicians are unable to accurately replicate and emulate the beauty of natural teeth. In the biomimetic-cosmetic approach, a major emphasis is to study, understand and mimic natural teeth. There is no reason to make teeth look so unnatural, and our goal is to provide the perfect smile and teeth with a natural and beautiful result.
The final result of many cosmetic procedures is dependent on the teamwork between your dentist and the ceramist who makes the porcelain veneers or restorations. Dr. Nejad works with the top ceramists in the world, many of which only work with select dentists based on their experience and skill. The planning and smile design process Dr. Nejad utilizes helps the ceramists produce consistently good results.
30 Year Life Span
A common misconception is that veneers routinely come off, stain, chip or discolor. While all of these are possible complications, they can be avoided with the right approach. Dr. Nejad is an expert in adhesion and follows a very advanced technique to ensure each veneer is cemented at maximum bond strength. This meticulous process takes more time to complete, but means the veneers can last 30 years or more with very little maintenance. Veneers should be cared for routinely like normal teeth.
Perfect Process- Unique Results
A process that has been perfected over countless cases makes for consistently excellent results. Cosmetic cases involve attention to every detail and an exacting technique. The process Dr. Nejad utilizes includes digital planning, clinical evaluation, photographic documentation, digital records and numerous steps to ensure the final result is crafted uniquely for you. Look closely at many cosmetic dentists who produce only one style and shape of restorations. Your teeth and smile need to match your individual personality and facial esthetics.
The mouth is a difficult place to work. More importantly, it is impossible to keep your teeth sufficiently dry and free from contamination when your veneers are being cemented if the rubber dam is not used. Common cementation of veneers involves placing several or all teeth at once, and cleaning cement off before it completely hardens. However, during the cleanup and placement stages, saliva, blood, and other fluids cover the tooth and get under your veneers. Ultimately, this results in a weaker connection to your tooth and less longevity. This is also the cause of staining and odors. The rubber dam is the best method of achieving meticulous isolation and getting the best connection and seal of your veneers. Dr. Nejad will use the rubber dam unless the patient requests otherwise.
