The world of dentistry has evolved dramatically over the years. Our mission is to keep up with the latest developments and equipment in dentistry today. To ensure your safety and provide you with a stunning, natural smile, we invest in only the highest-quality devices.
Advanced LasersAt West Hills Smiles, we are dedicated to making your care as comfortable as possible. Dr. Hakimzadeh and Dr. Reyhani use state-of-the-art lasers for a variety of aesthetic dentistry treatments. Whether used to whiten teeth, to lift and contour gum lines, or to shape teeth and veneers, lasers provide optimal precision and brilliant aesthetic effects.
Digital Smile DesignWe use the latest software technology to take the guesswork out of smile design. At your initial smile makeover consultation we will take impressions of your teeth and pictures of your entire face. We will then transfer these images to a computer, where they are digitally modified using advanced facial mapping techniques. Using this technology, we can design a smile that matches your personality and facial symmetry.
Intraoral CameraLike digital x-rays, digital photographs taken with our intraoral cameras can reveal the early signs of decay and other concerns. In this way, our dentists can identify problems before they affect the structural integrity of your entire tooth. We can also display these images on an exam room computer. Then you can see what we see during your exam, and you will have a better understanding of your diagnosis and treatment options.
Laser-Assisted Cavity DetectionUnfortunately, cavities often go undetected until patients experience discomfort or severe dental damage. Laser-assisted cavity detection is a quick, accurate, and non-invasive way to reveal decay. The laser device will measure fluorescence inside your tooth. Areas of decay will reveal higher levels of fluorescence. The device can reveal cavities in the earliest stages, so we can treat decay before it causes discomfort and harms your full tooth. Additionally, the low intensity Diagnodent laser enables us to monitor areas of concern without repeated x-rays.
Cinema ProMED SystemThe Cinema ProMED will keep you comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. With these individual video, you can watch an assortment of 2D and 3D movies as well as TV shows. You can also listen to music or even play video games! You can select your favorites by plugging into our iPad, or you can bring your own iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Digital X-RaysDigital x-rays are a fast and comfortable tool we use to assess your dental needs. With no chemical processing, no sharp pieces of x-ray film, and significantly less radiation than conventional x-rays, digital x-rays are a smart choice for your smile and the environment.
Using digital x-rays, Drs. Reyhani and Hakimzadeh can identify:
• Small areas of decay between teeth or below existing restorations
• Deep cavities
• Jaw infections
• Gum disease
• Abscesses or cysts
• Developmental abnormalities
• Some types of tumors
Many times, digital x-rays can reveal these concerns long before you experience any symptoms. Then we can determine the precise treatment that is most in keeping with your individual needs.
