New Habits for the New Year

The New Year is a time for resolutions. Lose weight. Get in shape. Travel more. Grow a beard (wait, that’s only for Boston Red Sox pitchers). Save more money. Funny, but dental resolutions don’t seem to make the list. That’s too bad because we put our trusty teeth through some unnecessary stresses and punishment through […]

All Aboard for All-on-4

The American Dental Association estimates that over 35 million Americans have lost all of their teeth. Many of these people have tried dentures to replace their teeth. But dentures, especially with older fitting methods, can be prone to slipping and they preclude eating certain foods. Plus, dentures don’t stop the process of the person’s jawbone […]

Would I Be Able to Have Dental Implants?

Over the last 15 years or so, dental implants have become far and away the best option for replacing a missing tooth or two. They have also given denture wearers security they’ve never had before through implant-supported dentures. But we sometimes have patients who have their doubts about their viability for dental implants. They are […]

Bioclear, A Great Alternative to Porcelain Veneers

When a patient has cosmetic flaws with his or her teeth, the go-to fix has been porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are placed on the fronts of the teeth to change their shape, cover staining, hide chips, and the like. But the problem with placing veneers has always been the […]

Porcelain Veneers Are a Cover-Up Even Robert Mueller Would Be Proud Of

No one’s teeth are naturally perfect: some are a little bit crooked; some have a slight gap between a couple teeth; some are stained beyond what whitening can correct; and some are chipped or cracked. Sure, living in L.A. where many people have had “some work done” it’s easy to assume other people have perfect […]

On the Lookout for Oral Cancer

During your twice-yearly exams with Dr. Fong, we do more than simply break off the tartar and scrub away the surface stains on your teeth. Sure, making your teeth look great is part of the deal. But even more important is our examination for the signs of oral cancer. That’s why Dr. Fong will pull […]

Fear Your Mother-in-Law, Not the Dentist

There are things to be afraid of: clowns, Roseanne Barr, the Thigh Master, a shore break at Huntington, your mother-in-law, and Survivor Season 27. Coming to see Dr. Fong for a cleaning and exam or other needed work shouldn’t be one of them. That’s why we offer sedation for our patients who need it. Some […]

Who Said Wisdom Teeth are Wise?

Whoever coined the term “wisdom teeth” wasn’t a dentist. This third set of molars is a leftover from our prehistoric ancestors and basically only cause trouble in modern times. Fortunately, Dr. Fong and his team will take out your caveman teeth before they can do much damage to the rest of your smile. What are […]

Crowns Don’t Need to be Covered with Jewels

When a tooth becomes weakened to the point that it can’t safely hold a filling, or if a tooth is cracked, chipped, or fractured, a porcelain crown can return its strength and appearance. The crown saves the tooth, eliminating the need for extraction and a replacement such as an implant. As the name suggests, a […]

Tooth-Colored Fillings are Beautiful

You think of them as cavities. When decay starts to eat away at a tooth, the decay must be removed. You have a “cavity.” The actual term is “caries.” We know; that seems odd. Sounds like something more for a Rams’ running back. Caries is actually the term for when decay has attacked a tooth […]
