Isn’t Best Smile® just for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry has become a misunderstood concept. Cosmetic dentistry has always existed — only today the technology and materials are so advanced and natural-looking that the patient benefits more than ever in cosmetic, restorative, implant or denture treatment.
You Sound Very Excited About Best Smile®, Dr. Smith!
I am, because I am not only a dentist, I am also a patient. Each day I see the happiness that is brought into the lives of my patients using the Best Smile® concept.
Over the years, listening to patients’ concerns, there has been a common theme that stops them from seeking treatment: Does my dentist care about me and is there compassion about my well being? Must I go to other offices for specialty treatments and have multiple appointments? Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up and have my treatment be finished? I decided to address those concerns, and the Best Smile® concept was created to bring the patients the benefit of a unique and convenient form of dental care.
Porcelain Veneers are ceramic restorations that cover the front of the teeth, much as an acrylic fingernail covers the underlying fingernail. The purpose of Porcelain Veneers is two fold. First, the ceramic veneer restores a fractured tooth, decayed tooth or old filling so that the tooth is stronger than before. Second, the all ceramic veneer is the most beautiful and pleasing restoration that Dentistry has available. Porcelain veneers are so natural and lifelike that you or your friends will only see beauty. There is never an ugly dark line at the gum line that is present with older “dental caps”.
The evolution of medical and dental technology brings forth the most long lasting and natural looking teeth possible. Call Dr. Leonard Smith of theOakridge Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at 408-669-3585, today, and find the beauty you deserve.
See amazing results of Porcelain Crowns!
If a filling in one of your teeth is very large, the sides of the tooth become too thin and are very likely to break. The dentist must then place a crown over the tooth to hold up against the pressures of chewing. Dr. Smith uses porcelain crowns that look like your natural teeth, right down to the gum line.
The newest materials in cosmetic dentistry are the new Empress Porcelain crowns, which are also known as “caps.” The Empress Porcelain crowns lack the tell-tale metal margin where the tooth meets the gum line. Call Dr. Smith at 408-669-3585 to have an evaluation to see if Empress Crowns are for you.

The TEN Most Important Tips In Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist
Secrets of cosmetic dentistry: The top ten secrets why you need Best Smile®
- Gum line scalloping with laser……The ONE most subtle and important factor. A dental laser is essential to eliminate time and cost of treatment by a periodontist.
- Ideal proportion of the upper front central incisors. Feminine or masculine: symmetry.
- Reshaping all teeth in the smile to that proportion. The Golden Proportion: symmetry.
- Shade: new Empress Porcelain, cut backs at sides and incisal. This is THE ONE step that can be short cut and the result will suffer. Ask the doctor.
- Warmth from the underlying tooth. Veneers are thin and take on the warmth of the natural tooth. This is why all teeth are unique and natural looking when done with the Best Smile™ system.
- Diagnostic wax up……you see the results before the treatment.
- Temporaries from wax up, bonded on : they don’t come off.
- Two appointments: extreme time conservation.
- Conscious sedation: pleasant, no pain.
- Total Treatment, One Office, One Doctor – Ultimate Convenience.
