Dr. Sormeh Panah and Dr. Arash Panah and their staff of smile-perfecting tooth jockeys keep grins looking swell with a suite of dental procedures. The two-visit veneer process starts with a consultation with the dentists, determining which teeth need porcelain coverings, choosing a shade, and creating molds to fashion the veneers and make a charitable donation of fake teeth for skeletons that forget to floss. On the second visit, hygienists thoroughly cleanse choppers, getting rid of tooth-bound gunk before applying cement to enamel surfaces. A quick-dry light speeds up the bonding process, expeditiously cleaving veneers to teeth. The veneers provide a durable covering for discolored or misshapen teeth and last for years, giving patients beautiful smiles in photographs and well-spaced bite marks on the giant, disembodied hands that feed them.
Modern Dental’s name doesn’t lie—the decor of the Torrance office exudes an artistic, gallery-like quality. Suspended box structures jut from the ceiling, and dangling light fixtures illuminate the office’s chic gray color scheme. But the term modern is even more apparent in the office's advanced cosmetic and general dentistry treatments, which licensed dentist Dr. Houman Baratian relies on to promote shiny and healthy smiles.
Pacific Dental Aesthetics uses the latest technology and an experienced staff to keep teeth hale and handsome. Get your grin on the road to pearly whiteness with a pair of appointments. During your first visit, you’ll submit your chompers for inspection, both by a powerful x-ray camera and even more powerful human eyes, as well as allow the office’s dental dynamos to make impressions of your teeth, which will be used to construct a custom-tailored whitening tray. At your second appointment, you’ll receive the trays and six syringes of whitening gel—enough for up to two weeks of treatments twice a day—plus a detailed primer about how to use them to turn your yellowed mouth-stones into bright-white beacons.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
Smiles West's dentists and oral specialists tackle all levels of dentistry from general exams to orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic whitening. Each of the seven locations uses state-of-the-art equipment—including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays—to provide the most thorough examinations possible. During more intensive procedures, they enhance comfort by administering sedatives or sprinkling teeth with fairy dust.
