Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, you’ll want replacements that are as natural as possible.  If dentures don’t work for you, you may consider dental implants.  Unlike dentures, which can be removed, implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself.

s-dental-implantsUsually Dr. Mehr feels you are a good candidate for implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and healthy oral tissues.  When the implant device is inserted into the jaw, a chemical  and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant.

With implants, Dr. Mehr can get you a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as (or better than!) your original teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Today at Beverly Hills Center For Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry we have exciting new biomaterials that can give your smile a lift without  invasive treatments.

s-veneersDr. Mehr can use ultra-thin porcelain veneers to correct chipped, weakened, or discolored teeth. No more yellow. No more gaps or embarrassing chips. And Dr. Mehr’s veneers can return real structural integrity to damaged teeth, while leaving them looking as good (or possibly better) than the originals.

At Beverly Hills Center For Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry, your veneers are custom made to fit over your natural teeth, with a finish more translucent to blend in with surrounding teeth.  So people won’t notice your tooth, they’ll simply see your beautiful, natural smile.

Colored Tooth Restoration

For over 100 years, dentistry has restored teeth primarily with a material made of mercury and silver. It has done its job well, although we have had to live with its weaknesses.

Now we have many ways to provide tooth-colored restorations at Beverly Hills Center For Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry. We can use adhesives to bond tooth parts that look and act like teeth. We can provide a bright, healthy and strong smile with these exciting new techniques in adhesion dentistry.

Root Canal Therapy

When Dr. Mehr says you need a root canal, that’s actually good news. It means they can save your tooth, instead of extracting it.

s-root-canalThe procedure is not painful as you may have heard. At Beverly Hills Center For Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry we will numb the tooth so you won’t feel any pain, and there is little discomfort afterwards. Extracting the tooth would be less healthy and more expensive.

Repairing the root canal is the way Dr. Mehr can save the entire tooth. The other alternative is to pull the tooth entirely. However, leaving that space empty may create other problems, like making chewing and biting more difficult. Teeth may also shift their position if missing teeth are not there to hold the space.


Crowns, or caps for teeth, look and function just like natural teeth. Dr. Mehr may recommend a crown if your tooth has enough decay that it cannot hold a filling, or if your tooth is cracked or broken and in danger of cracking down into the root if left unattended. A crown covers your tooth completely. It fits snugly at the gum and protects what remains of the natural tooth.
