Dr. David S. Frey is asked many questions about the cosmetic dentistry, neuromuscular dentistry, and sleep dentistry procedures he offers at his Beverly Hills practice. Below are answers to some of the frequently asked questions.
A: If you are interested in a straighter or whiter smile, then yes, you are a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. If you are self conscious about your smile because of chipped, crooked, crowded, or stained teeth, your smile can be transformed with the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at our Beverly Hills practice.
A: Yes. Dr. Frey offers sleep dentistry at his Beverly Hills practice to patients who are afraid to have dental work performed. The sedation methods he uses allow patients to have dental work performed with little recollection of the event.
A: Instant orthodontics is a term used to describe a modern dental procedure that straightens teeth, closes gaps, and corrects overcrowding with the use of porcelain veneers instead of braces. This procedure also strengthens teeth and helps keep the gum line healthy. Dr. Frey uses this cosmetic dentistry treatment at his Beverly Hills practice when performing full mouth restorations.
There is very little, if any, pain associated with instant orthodontics.
A: Porcelain veneers were designed as long lasting dental restorations. This cosmetic dentistry procedure gained popularity in the 1980s. Many of those original veneers are still in place today.
During the last 15 years, both the technique and the adhesive bonding process used in the placement of porcelain veneers have improved. Due to the advancement in this cosmetic dentistry procedure, Beverly Hills patients who have Dr. Frey place porcelain dental veneers on their teeth should see even longer lasting results.
A: Similar to pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, porcelain onlays and inlays fit into the tooth to restore its original and natural structure.
Porcelain onlays and inlays are a good alternative to dental crowns (or caps). When placing a dental crown, the tooth has to be drilled down and much of the original tooth is lost. The porcelain restorations, however, build on the tooth's structure, strengthening the existing tooth.
A: Not necessarily. Since Dr. Frey offers sleep dentistry to the patients at his Beverly Hills practice, many times extensive dental procedures can be completed in one to two visits.
A: Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the treatment of the jaw and how it relates to dental problems, headaches, and other discomforts caused by TMJ disorders (TMD).
A: Yes. Dr. Frey offers neuromuscular dentistry at his Beverly Hills practice to treat the dental complications, pain, and other symptoms associated with TMJ disorders (TMD).
A: When properly administered the gels used during teeth whitening treatments will not harm your teeth.
Your teeth may have heightened sensitivity to hot and cold for 24 hours after the cosmetic dentistry whitening treatment, but the sensitivity usually disappears after the first post-treatment day.
A: The Argon laser that Dr. Frey uses only takes five seconds per tooth to bond the porcelain veneers. Because conventional and halogen lights produce a less intense light source, they can take up to forty seconds per tooth. The laser also causes less resin shrinkage in the bonding process, creating a stronger bond.
A: Applying the techniques of laser dentistry, Dr. Frey uses a diode laser to painlessly even the gum line. Dr. Frey refers to the laser as his "magic wand" because he can create a symmetrical and beautiful smile with the simple use of this laser.
A: While Dr. Frey does not administer periodontal or endodontic treatments, he routinely refers patients who need these services to specialists in these areas. Because Dr. Frey works with a group of trusted specialists, he can help coordinate a complete treatment plan for those who need further care before completing restorative or cosmetic dentistry work. This kind of coordinated effort can be especially important when dealing with traumatic injury or inherited defects. Please feel free to contact our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry practice if you have additional questions in this area.
A: Dr. Frey's practice accepts most dental insurance. In the event that you do not have insurance or if your insurance company does not cover the cost of your cosmetic or neuromuscular dentistry procedure, his Beverly Hills practice offers several low interest financing options.
