Sherman Oaks Teeth Whitening, Dental Implants, Veneers
From routine cleanings and fillings to bruxism devices, Sherman Oaks Dental Care is equipped to handle all your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Laser Periodontal Therapy
75% of the population has some form of gum disease. Dentists commonly recommend scaling, root-planing and gum surgery. Signs of gum disease may include bad breath, bleeding gums, sore or loose teeth, and changed bite. However, many people have no awareness of symptoms at all.
That's why, gum disease, like heart disease, can be a "silent killer" (of teeth, that is!) And, it's not just about your teeth anymore. People with periodontitis are at greater risk for heart disease, stroke, complications with diabetes, respiratory infection, and spontaneous pre-term births.
Dr. Ebrahimian, better known to his patients as "Dr. E" is providing the no cut, no sew, no fear laser alternative for treatment of periodontal disease. Using the FDA cleared PerioLase dental laser, Dr. E successfully and comfortably treats patients with periodontitis so they are able to quickly return to their daily routine.
So many people need help, and they're looking for a better way. Our patients say, "This is just what I've been looking for and didn't know existed." The latest research, provides the science supporting the results we've seen with our patients for years, including pocket reduction, elimination of inflammation, and bone improvement.

We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance.
Our state-of-the-art, in-office Power Bleaching system will make your teeth whiter in less than 1.5 hours. Another option is our home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.
Crowns and Veneers
You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns (empressed material) on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal.
Tooth-colored filings that are light cures to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material.
We perform root canals on anterior and premolar teeth.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you.
