Cosmetic



Story on Full mouth Restoration EncinoWarning, these are tough pictures to look at. The long-term effects of gum disease and tooth decay are not very pretty and are even harder to live with.

Day-to-day living and activities that we take for granted, such as the ability to eat and to talk easily, become real challenges or even impossible. Perhaps even more serious than the loss of functionality and quality of life is the very real health threat as your body is continually exposed to pathogenic bacteria and germs. No wonder periodontal disease has been linked to serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and more.

In this patient's case, years of progressive gum disease and tooth decay led to the loss of most of his teeth (some of the teeth below are not his natural teeth) and also bone loss. Despite regular dental care, his condition worsened to the point that his dentist gave up and sent him to a specialist. The specialist also gave up and told him, "You have no choice but to remove all your teeth and wear dentures. The bone loss and tooth loss is so bad that they cannot be salvaged."

Well, if you have ever worn dentures or know someone who has, this is not a nice way to live. They are uncomfortable, cause many problems, are embarrassing, and rarely look good. So this was not a choice this man wanted to take.

Thankfully, a caring friend referred him to Dr. O'Malley. Even though he lived half-way across the country, he knew he had to seek the help of a dentist that was an expert in holistic, biological, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. It was a good thing that he made that choice and made that trip. Without a doubt, this was a very tough case. Without a deep understanding of these multiple fields of dentistry, there is no doubt it would have been impossible to save his teeth. But Dr. O'Malley and his team did.

It was not easy and it was not quick. The entire procedure took slightly over a year but the patient was certainly not complaining. Not only did he get his smile back, but he got back a level of quality life that had been gone for years. Eating was enjoyable (and this contributes to your nutrition as well), talking was fun, and boy oh boy – was it fun to laugh and smile again!

A new look and a new life! Check these out and what he had to say:

"Both my dentist and my oral surgeon said I had no choice and that all my teeth needed to go, that dentures were my only option. Thank heavens I found Dr. O'Malley. He studied my mouth and developed a strategic restoration. It took a year but I saved many of my remaining teeth! And now I have a smile that looks beautiful and feels so natural. The best part was the trip I took to Florida after we finished. For the first time in years I could easily bite into and enjoy a steak. Wow, it was great. I look amazing and feel so much better about myself – truly a new man!"

Saving a Man's Teeth

Before and After Photos Encino - Before After 01 After years of progressive gum disease and much suffering this man’s dentist told him "Sorry, they all have to go!" Thankfully he came to see me for a second opinion and after some study I developed a plan to save his remaining teeth and to restore his smile. He lives in Texas so we had to initiate the work there and after I returned to California I continued to supervise his case until he was ready for his new mouth. After eight months he came to my office in California and we completed the work. Needless to say he is overjoyed and was ecstatic that on his upcoming vacation he could eat steak again!

What a rewarding job.

An Awesome Transformation and Looking 10 Years Younger!

Before and After Photos Encino - Before After 02 This was such a wonderful result for both my patient and for myself. It was a perfect example of how transforming your smile can transform your entire look. What I love to see is how openly and frequently my patients start smiling after they have their smiles restored and transformed. Multiple studies have supported the fact that people judge us by our teeth and by our smiles. It has a powerful effect upon others and having a beautiful one can change how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us as well.

Ready for your transformation?

John's Pain-Free, Natural Smile

John arrived with extensive decay, discomfort and all of the hurdles, such as time, fear of pain, money and past bad dental experiences, to overcome. We followed minimally invasive guidelines to restore his teeth using biocompatible materials and metal free veneers and crowns. In just 3 visits we were able to save his teeth, complete laser correction of his and giving him a pain-free, natural smile. We cleaned and lightened both the upper and lower teeth, with the lower teeth to be corrected and restored at a later date.

Darley's New and Beautiful Smile

Darly's smile needed extensive repairs and restoration beyond the obvious missing tooth. We replaced his missing tooth with a permanent and natural-looking cosmetic bridge. To ensure that the new tooth would blend well we reshaped his gum to create a fitting contour for the false tooth. Next we did ultra-thin veneers on his adjacent teeth, ending up with a fully restored smile and improved function. Needless to say he was extremely happy with the painless procedure from start to finish and quite proud of his new and beautifully natural smile.

Linda Finally Gets The Smile Of Her Dreams

This work clearly illustrates the value of a great lab and the benefits of a minimally invasive approach.

Linda had gone to another dentist for veneers done to close a gap between her front teeth. The result was a disaster. The veneers were square, bulky, and unattractive PLUS they kept popping off! Her gums were swollen as the result of a poor fit and the damage done by the previous dentist, who unfortunately was VERY aggressive in grinding down her teeth and prepared too far below her gums. This invasive approach to veneers is NEVER needed with a skilled hand, a great lab and the use of ultra-thin veneers. Our first step was to set in place nicer looking temporary veneers. Then over several visits, we used painless laser gum techniques to heal and reshape her swollen gums. We were then able to rebuild her smile with 6 new veneers.

The result was fantastic, pain-free, natural-looking and comfortable. Linda literally had tears of joy when we were finished as she FINALLY got the smile she had dreamed of.

Laura's Natural Appearance

Laura had an older bridge that she was upset with and was hoping to be able to improve its look and functionality. In particular, she disliked the grey coloration along the gum lines, which was caused by the metal under her porcelain bridge.

Following our biocompatible procedures we found a metal-free and natural-looking bridge made from a material that she tested compatible with. The result was fantastic and one look at the comparison shows the great results. The new bridge appears natural due to its translucent quality, which provides a far more natural appearance and match to real teeth.

Front bridges must not only appear beautiful and natural they must provide excellent function.

Many factors come into play and we work to ensure that functions such as speech, chewing and jaw movements are all given full importance in our restorations.



Anti Aging

What a difference a smile makes — look 10 years younger!

Gerri's Story on her anti aging Cosmetic Restoration EncinoHere is Gerri, a model example of how an artfully created and executed cosmetic restoration can not only give you a beautiful, white smile but can naturally take years off of your appearance. Especially as we age, looking 10 years younger is a very good thing!

It is not just the effect of old, yellowed and broken (or missing) teeth. As we grow older our faces tend to shrink and collapse. Notice the collapse of Gerri's jaw and cheek areas as well as the smaller lips and much reduced smile. This aging of the mouth, jaw, gums and teeth not only detracts from her appearance but it aged her beyond her years.

This process is due in no small part to the decay of our teeth, the steady grinding down from eating, talking and bruxism, and also the deterioration of the gums.

In this before image you can see more readily how strained her smile appears. This is due to issues with the deterioration of her teeth and gums, and bite problems treated by us. Of course the gaps in her teeth, the yellowing and darkening of the color, and the uneven spacing and sizing all combined to "teach" her to smile less and to smile small!

Important Note: A smile restoration is far, far more than "enamel deep" and it is critical to address all the issues in a mouth, from gum disease to bite issues. This is particularly critical for older individuals as there can be far more underlying issues as we age. It is also important that the smile fits your face and is right for you.

Check out this after image … Simply Amazing!

Anti Aging Dentistry After CaseI know it is hard to take your eyes off that gorgeous smile, but make an effort! Notice how the subtle yet attractive gum line now enhances not only the smile (like a frame on a beautiful picture) but also how it adds attractive depth and dimension to her lips.

Also notice the additional fullness to her cheeks and the restoration of her gumline. This is natural cosmetic dentistry at its best! Compare these before and after cosmetic dentistry images.

Look at how much younger and happier Gerri appears. Actual surveys of these two images commonly resulted in age estimates that were 10, if not 15 years younger than Gerri's chronological age.

The beauty of this transformation is not just the aesthetic boost but the boost in her confidence, and improved health, form, and functionality. Plenty of reasons to smile here!

How to look younger with cosmetic dentistry

Perhaps you heard of something called "anti-aging dentistry" as it was the source of quite a bit of buzz in the news recently.

It is an interesting and accurate portrayal of what quality cosmetic dentistry is truly about. Primarily, most people tend to think of cosmetic dentistry (and dental veneers) as a way to achieve a bright, white smile or to correct poor shape, cracks, or other imperfections.

What they don't realize is this: As you get older, your smile and teeth will become one of the most dramatic aging factors to your appearance.

How does that happen?
  • First the obvious – Teeth that are yellowed, cracked, discolored and worn down give a tired and old look to your smile and face.
  • Second, what is not so obvious – As you age, teeth become worn down and your mouth loses its volume from impaction and erosion. This has repercussions for the appearance of your entire face. It can lead to increased wrinkles, thinner lips, sunken cheeks, a dropped jawline and, like those wizened apple dolls you see at country fairs, this just makes you look old.

Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?

Yes! But with a bit of advice.

I believe strongly that while cosmetic dentistry is there to make you look great, it is about so much more than just looks alone. It is about taking your smile and your mouth to its best in form, function, fit and appearance … far more than just looks alone.

What I believe in, and have devoted my practice to, is:
  • A blend of natural, cosmetic dentistry
  • Reconstructive dentistry
  • Minimally invasive dentistry
  • An overall holistic approach
When I look at a mouth from those four viewpoints then I can heartily and 100 percent state that I have yet to find a mouth that could not be brought to a more optimum state of health, functionality, comfort, longevity, and beauty!

When approached from that viewpoint, then "yes," cosmetic dentistry is right for you!

Give me a call at 818-863-6340. I would love to see you and answer any questions you may have about looking 10 years younger and becoming healthier with natural cosmetic dentistry.

Veneers

What a phenomenal result, as the before and after gallery below shows.

Natasha's smile was not a bad smile, but it did not fit her face and she hated the fact that her smile never grew up to fit her face, in her 20's she still had her 12-year-old smile.

I took great pleasure in working with her very closely to achieve the exact look, color, shade and smile that she wanted.

See for yourself, notice the change in her overall appearance and how the correct and right smile will bring out the full beauty of an individual's appearance. Notice as well the delicate work on to frame the new veneers with gum restructuring. Also note the translucent and very natural coloration of the ultra-thin veneers that we used-more work and very detailed, but completely worth the final result!

With her new veneers she got that brighter and fuller smile. The new smile fit her face perfectly, has a gorgeous and natural radiance and worked to bring out the best in her features. With precise gum contouring and painstaking attention to color along with the use of ultra-thin veneers (actually stronger, better for your teeth and natural appearance) we got the job done.
What Natasha Had to Say about her Veneers

"If anyone is thinking about transforming their smile, just know that if you work with Dr. O’Malley you will absolutely get the smile you have always wanted. He is so good at what he does, a consummate professional who has honed his craft to perfection. He treats you as an individual and really cares. You can trust in him to create the smile you've always wanted. Dr. O'Malley loves his job. How can he not? He helps make dreams come true. He did for me."

When he first came into our office, he was almost too embarrassed to smile. His teeth were worn, and he also suffered from fluorosis – a condition caused by excessive intake of fluorine compounds. It caused yellowing, pitting, and mottling of the enamel. He helped us every step of the way, and let us know how he wanted his smile to look. After making computer measurements of his teeth and plotting the final shape of our ultra thin veneers to visualize his smile, we fit him with some temporary veneers while we ordered the permanent ones from our laboratory. Our ultra thin veneers are quite different from the standard. Many of the standard veneers are very thick, and require a lot of enamel to be removed from the tooth to prepare it. The thicker veneers aren’t as strong as the teeth and are prone to cracking and breaking. Our veneers are much thinner, look more like normal teeth, and can match the strength of your natural teeth. What a difference when the final veneers were placed on our patient! Notice the natural brightening and how healthy his smile looks. He is so happy and confident, now he can’t stop smiling!

Mercury Removal

Mercury amalgam is a common filler to correct cavities, and has been for over 100 years of dentistry. The material is strong, and it bonds with the tooth fairly well. The problem is that Mercury, while it is a natural element, is a poisonous material. It can be a danger when in the small amounts present in the filling, and is a danger when removed as the small particles of mercury created when the filling is drilled can be absorbed by the patient. We take the removal of this material from the smile very seriously. The strictest protocols are used and great care is taken that no particles are absorbed by the patient. We removed the amalgam filling safely from this posterior tooth, and used biocompatible material in an incremental bonding process for a wonderful onlay. Our process requires minimal preparation of the patient and results in maximum strength for the tooth. Holistic biocompatible materials = happy patient!
Our office specializes in safely removing mercury amalgam fillings as safely as possible. Mercury, while it is one of the most dangerous substances to human cells, can cause other problems. The material is strong enough to endure the pressures of biting and chewing, but implementing it into the tooth requires a great amount of the tooth structure to be drilled away. The metal is very conductive to heat and cold, and will expand and contract dramatically. This can lead to the tooth cracking or breaking or the filling can fall out. The amalgam can also discolor the tooth gray or black, and those with metal allergies will react with the fillings as well. Fortunately, we were able to restore these teeth using our strict protocols to prevent mercury contamination to staff or patient. We are very happy we were able to save over 90% of the original tooth structure, and replace the amalgam with composite resin. The resin bonds to the tooth better, and reacts like the original tooth structure with bite pressures, heat, and cold without the discoloration often present. This leads to a filling that is safe, and undetectable at first glance.

16 Years Later and the Smile Shines On!
