Though the phrase "bone harvesting" may sound more at home in a science-fiction movie than a dental office, Creek View Dental Group’s experienced technicians are quick to set their patients’ minds at ease. In dentistry, they explain, bone harvesting is merely a procedure that can give a thin jaw the thickness it needs to support dental implants.
The office’s trio of dentists specializes in bone harvesting and other general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. A friendly staff assists the dentists, diffusing any anxieties with warm smiles and gentle touch. If that’s not enough, the office offers a range of oral and IV sedation treatments that can help patients overcome their fears of pain and of their mouths being invaded by buzzing, insectoid tooth fairies.
Healthy teeth and gums are important for more than just your smile—they also impact your overall wellness. Dr. Phillip Zeip strives to educate patients about this connection while he and his staff perform a full complement of general and cosmetic dental services. Even after more than a decade in the industry, Dr. Zeip continues to stay current by studying new techniques and adopting new technologies, including digital x-ray systems and intra-oral cameras. Dr. Zeip and his team also update the appearance of teeth with the help of implants, crowns, and veneers. Should patients wish for additional aesthetic adjustments, the specialists can also inject dermal fillers or host symposia on advanced winking.
The doctors at the helm of Smile Dental Care have been practicing dentistry for about two decades, but their learning process never stops. To perfect their craft, the two continue to train in advanced cosmetic dentistry at UCLA and attend lectures and hands-on courses. At the clinic, they specialize in services that range from implant and crown installation to root canals, dentures, and cosmetic treatments such as Zoom! whitening and Invisalign. In an effort the beautify both smiles and skin, the dental center also administers Botox injections.
