Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Beverly Hills top dentist and gum specialist Dr. Alex A. Farnoosh (http://www.thetotalsmile.com) is gaining popularity among celebrities for his comprehensive approach to cosmetic dentistry. Using a combination of procedures designed to improve the teeth, enhance the lips and correct the gums, Dr. Farnoosh is helping Hollywood celebrities refine their appearance with a "smile makeover."
"If you’re in the entertainment industry, your career may depend on your appearance, particularly your smile," Dr. Farnoosh says. "And an attractive smile isn't simply about having white teeth. A true 'smile makeover' addresses the three most important components of any smile – the teeth, gums, and lips –for complete enhancements and a more dramatic transformation."
Dr. Farnoosh is the pioneer of an innovative gummy smile correction surgery technique known as "lip lowering." This approach limits the vertical movement of the upper lip so that a more normal amount of gum tissue is exposed when smiling. The procedure is relatively simple and helps to balance the gum-to-tooth ratio while also making the patient's lips look fuller. Dr. Farnoosh says the procedure is much safer and more efficient than previous methods of gummy smile surgery.
"Treating a gummy smile used to be much more difficult," Dr. Farnoosh states. "In the past, a very invasive procedure that required surgery of the upper or lower jaw was usually recommended for individuals with a gummy smile or those who have had jaw surgery. Now, with lip-lowering, a gummy smile can be corrected quickly using only local anesthesia."
Hollywood stars aren't the only ones visiting Dr. Farnoosh for a celebrity-worthy smile – men and women from all over the world travel to Los Angeles to meet with Dr. Farnoosh for his advanced techniques in cosmetic dentistry. In addition to his revolutionary gummy smile correction procedure, Dr. Farnoosh has also developed a special gum bleaching treatment to treat discolored gums. His treatment methods have been featured in the International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, and in The New York Times best seller Billion Dollar Smile by Dr. Bill Dorfman, a guest on the popular program The Doctors and one of the doctors on ABC's Extreme Makeover.
"Cosmetic dentistry is becoming more popular as people begin to realize the rejuvenating effects that a healthy looking smile can have on their appearance," Dr. Farnoosh says. "When you can smile with confidence, you feel better about yourself. My goal is to bring out the inner radiance in each of my patients and help them live, and smile, proudly."
