Basically, veneers are thin porcelain coverings that fit over and are bonded to your teeth, look natural, and are made from the most advanced dental ceramic available. Lumineers and da Vinci veneers are contact lens-thin and super translucent. Because of this thinness, little or no tooth reduction is necessary.InvisalignUsually the sign of awkwardness, braces are the bane of many a high school student, and some adults as well. With Invisalign, you can now get straight teeth without the traditional metal braces. You get perfectly aligned teeth in as little as 9-15 months, whether you have overcrowding, widely spaced teeth, overbite, underbite, or crossbite. The clear plastic custom-made aligners are replaced every two weeks, and no metal or wires means less time in the chair getting adjustments. This means no mouth irritation, and even better, no one will know you’re straightening your teeth because – they’re invisible! The Invisalignâ„¢ system is easily removable so you can not only eat and drink what you want while in treatment, brushing and flossing are no problem.Dr. Harmik Derhartounian is an Invisalign Preferred Provider.CERECCosmetic dentistry of the future, Flintridge Dental Studio offers crowns made with CEREC, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, in about an hour. No more temporaries, additional visits, or crowns that don’t seem to fit right. Just because CEREC crowns are convenient and aesthetically desirable doesn’t mean you have to give up function. These modern restorations dramatically reduce cracking, lowering the likelihood of needing future root canal treatment. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations are bonded to the tooth with the optimum strength available.Galileo ImplantsIt used to be, if you were missing teeth, you had to use bridges or removable dentures. These sit on top of the gums, which make smiles look fake. With Galileo implants, the implants sit under the gums, which gives the tooth restoration a more lifelike appearance as if to come out through the gums like the original tooth did.Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and they don’t need to be taken out at night.Kör Deep BleachingKöR Deep Bleaching is so effective it is the only whitening in the world that will whiten even congenital and tetracycline-discolored teeth in a short time. And, with easy occasional maintenance at home, the results are PERMANENT, even if you drink tea, coffee, or red wine.Flintridge Dental Studio also offers take-home tray services. With these, you receive supplies and instructions to complete the whitening process in the privacy of your own home. This procedure is safe and effective with dazzling results in just 1-14 days.Just because you have teeth problems doesn’t mean you have to stop smiling. Reinvigorate your smile at Flintridge Dental Studio, where Dr. Harmik Derhartounian can help improve every smile, no matter the problem. Confidence is just a smile away, with the help of Flintridge Dental Studio.Flintridge Dental Studio is located at 4542 Rinetti Lane, La Cañada, Flintridge.

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Temperatures are hovering around, or over, 100 degrees across much of California, and there won’t be any relief on Friday.A record high of 97 degrees was recorded in Long Beach, California, and even usually cool Los Angeles International Airport reported a record high of 87. Southern California also saw thunderstorms that produced some rare rain. Los Angeles International Airport had a trace of rain, which was enough to tie a daily rainfall record. Palmdale, in the heart of the desert, got up to 0.03 inches of rain, which was also a daily record.Fewer storms are expected over the weekend in Southern California, as the pattern changes with the heat on for most of California and the West Coast.A heat advisory and an excessive heat watch have been issued for a large part of California, where temperatures this weekend will surpass 110 degrees.Also a fire weather watch has been issued for Montana, due to the forecast gusty winds near 40 mph and low relative humidity. Fires can ignite and spread quickly there this weekend.Temperatures this weekend in some parts of California and near Las Vegas will surpass 110 degrees and even close to 120 in the hottest spots.Meanwhile, in the Midwest and the Northeast the comfortable weather will be ending, with the heat and humidity returning by the weekend and into early next week.It may not be a major heat wave, but a few days near 90 or in the 90s are definitely possible from Chicago to New York City.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgOne week after toppling then-No. 5 Stanford behind an unusually powerful passing attack, the Trojans returned to a ground-and-pound strategy headed by redshirt sophomore running back Javorius “Buck” Allen on Saturday night to convincingly beat Colorado 47-29.USC (9-3, 6-2), however, was still eliminated from the Pac-12 South division title race as Arizona State defeated UCLA 38-33 to clinch its spot in the conference championship game versus Stanford.“We were hoping things would be a little different, but it’s college football,” redshirt junior tight end Xavier Grimble said. “As long as we keep winning, things will take care of themselves and we’ll end up somewhere good.”The Buffs (4-7, 1-7) managed to put up 22 points and double its total yardage in the fourth quarter to make the final score close. But an onside kick recovery followed by a 52-yard touchdown scamper by redshirt sophomore fullback Soma Vainuku put the finishing touch on the Trojans’ fifth straight win, and improved their all-time record against the Buffs to 8-0.“We were inconsistent with some things, but we won the game and that’s what matters,” interim head coach Ed Orgeron said. “We had an emotional game against Stanford and a rivalry game [against UCLA] coming up, so it showed some maturity in our football team to come in here and win.”Now, it seems next week’s matchup against the Bruins will only determine which rival can claim bragging rights for the next year, as well as possibly define the coaching future of interim head coach Ed Orgeron, who has guided the Trojans to a 6-1 (6-0 in the Pac-12) record after taking over for former head coach Lane Kiffin.“We can control winning 10 games, and that’s what we’re worried about,” redshirt junior safety Dion Bailey said. “It is what it is. It makes the game next week that much more personal for us.”The chilly temperature would seem to help Colorado, given that in school history the Buffs had been 11-1-1 at home in sub-30 degree weather while USC hadn’t played in those conditions since 1959.But the Trojan defense was up to the task, as most of the starters left with a 37-7 lead midway through the third quarter, with the lone Colorado touchdown coming off a fumble return. Colorado didn’t run a play in USC’s territory until the 2:40 mark of the second quarter – and that play resulted in an interception. The Buffaloes’ 73 first-half yards were a season low, as Colorado was shut out in the first half for the first time this year.The Trojans did an excellent job of blanketing Colorado wideout Paul Richardson, who came in as the fourth-leading receiver nationally (120.1 receiving yards per game) but netted only 88 yards against USC, all of which came in the second half. His first reception came over halfway through the third quarter, when USC was up 37-7 and the game was well out of hand.“[Defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast] is really good at coming up with schemes to stop big-time receivers,” Bailey said. “All the big-time receivers we’ve played so far, we’ve shut them down way below their game average.”Neither senior tailback Silas Redd (knee) nor junior wideout Marqise Lee (shin) traveled with the team due to injuries, but the Trojans were just fine on offense without them.Kessler was his usual efficient self, completing 19 of 28 passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns before sitting out the fourth quarter with a healthy lead.Allen continued to showcase his explosive talent, amassing 169 all-purpose yards (145 rushing) and three touchdowns on 21 carries and three receptions.“We came out with a great mindset that we were going to pound the ball,” Allen said. “We struggled a little bit [at first], but as the game went on we picked it up.”The former fourth-string tailback had his third three-touchdown game this season, and has tallied 619 rushing yards and 10 scores (nine rushing) in the last four weeks.Allen put the Trojans on the board with an impressive 12-yard touchdown run, taking an outside handoff to the sideline before stretching to touch the pylon.After USC’s defense pinned the Buffs deep in their own territory, redshirt sophomore fullback Soma Vainuku came up with his third blocked punt of the year. The ball spun out of the back of the end zone for a safety to put the Trojans up 9-0 with just over a minute left in the first quarter.The Trojan defense pressured Colorado freshman quarterback Sefo Liufau all night long, letting the freshman complete just four of 15 passes in the first half. And it paid off midway through the second quarter after USC’s offense had started to lull.Sophomore defensive end Leonard Williams came up with his sixth sack of the year, forcing a fumble that the Trojans recovered for great field position at the Colorado 20-yard line. Allen punched it in from one yard out a couple minutes later to give USC a 16-0 lead.Earlier in the week, redshirt junior safety Dion Bailey had said that Liufau tended to “make a lot of freshman throws — overthrows, underthrows, misreading things.” Bailey backed up his talk, coming up with an interception with just over two minutes left before halftime to preserve USC’s first-half shutout.From there, the Trojans drove 66 yards in less than two minutes to reach the end zone again before halftime. Sophomore wide receiver Nelson Agholor reeled in a 20-yard back shoulder throw from Kessler to extend USC’s lead to 23-0 heading into the locker room.It briefly looked as though Colorado would make a push after the Buffs returned an Allen fumble 33 yards for a touchdown on the first play of the second half. But the Trojans responded with a 7-play, 75-yard drive punctuated by a 10-yard touchdown pass from Kessler to redshirt junior tight end Randall Telfer to reinstate their 23-point cushion and let them cruise to the finish line.Follow Will on Twitter @WillLawslast_img read more
