At Pasadena Smile Center, Dr. Molayem and her staff promote healthy bites with cosmetic and preventative services. During initial exams, Dr. Molayem and a hygienist sleuth around mouths, looking for telltale clues of decay, oral cancer, gum disease, and tooth fairy ponzi schemes. Afterwards, the smile-smiths wield special dental instruments to remove plaque during a teeth cleaning and more stubborn stains during a tooth polishing. Diagnostic images fill up sheets of radiograph x-rays to unveil structural problems such as overbites and parched tooth roots.
To combat discoloration, the Sapphire Plasma Arc whitening and curing light spotlights enamel with illuminating beams that can help brighten teeth by up to 12 shades. The treatment harnesses the power of fluoride to help protect against demineralization and a desensitizing enhancer to soothe tooth nerves. Afterwards, patients leave with an after-care home whitening kit and a tube of Sapphire Brilliance toothpaste to squeeze into bowls of cereal when there’s no milk.
Pasadena Smile Center
Dr. Niloufar Molayem, the resident dentist at Pasadena Smile Center, knows her patients are more than just a set of teeth. That’s why she practices holistic dentistry to ensure the materials she uses are nontoxic, and provides optional sedation services to ease anxieties. Once clients are comfortable, Dr. Molayem can perform general or cosmetic procedures ranging from regular cleanings to more intensive orthodontics or surgeries. Many of her treatments rely on advanced technology to further increase efficiency, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to diagnose concerns and low-level lasers to address gum disease or rampant mouth-dimness. Should more serious issues arise, Dr. Molayem can partner with the clinic’s periodontist, Dr. Eric Cho, to nip them in the bud.
