Top Cosmetic Dentistry
With so many cosmetic dentists available in Beverly Hills and across Los Angeles, how do you choose the right one? Is the dentist with the most certifications or dental affiliations the best choice? Is it alright to choose the closest dental office to your home or office? What if your insurance recommends a local favorite? The best doctors and cosmetic dentists--the ones you should choose--are the ones with the most experience, who don't teach for half of the week, but rather employ 100% hands-on approaches to treatment.
Joseph Goodman, DDS, DMD performs cosmetic dental procedures in his Beverly Hills dental practice every day. There is at least one cosmetic makeover case being performed daily, whether it is a minor case with six veneers or a complete smile makeover of 20, 22, or even 28 veneers and crowns. This experience has enabled Dr. Goodman to treat the most comprehensive and complicated cases.
His attention to detail and extensive body of work all began at the prestigious University of Aachen, Germany, where Dr. Goodman obtained his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree (D.M.D.). This extremely selective dental school is highly regarded in Europe, having produced several of the world's most recognized innovators in cosmetic dentistry, holistic dentistry, and prosthodontist, commonly known as the dental specialty dealing with full-mouth reconstruction and complex dentistry. In Germany, he participated in the Department of Prosthodontics, which is the specialty of restorative dentistry dealing with complex and difficult combination cases including implants.
Dr. Goodman earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (D.D.S.) in the United States with additional post-graduate training from UCLA & USC.
He also lectures about cosmetic dentistry internationally.

Joseph Goodman, DDS, DMD was one of the first cosmetic dentists in Germany to use porcelain veneers starting in the early 1990s. At that time, porcelain veneers were not as commonly used, due to limitations in adhesion and available materials. Colleagues at the time dismissed Dr. Goodman's efforts to achieve dental excellence using porcelain veneers as unrealistic, short-term, and unpredictable. Dental experts just 20 years ago shrugged off the use of porcelain veneers, but they failed to realize the full potential of porcelain veneers. Most of the porcelain veneers designed and cemented by Dr. Goodman 20 years ago are still serving patients well. Some of them have been replaced, of course, but generally only because of changes in shading preferences over time. The new white today (Shade OM3, Vita Co.) did not exist back then.

Reconstructive Dentistry, Full-mouth Rehabilitation, and Comprehensive Dentistry
A successful smile makeover requires a dentist with many years of hands-on experience. Each patient is unique; as such the dentist must be trained extensively in the fields of gnathology, occlusion (bite), centric relation, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). His rigorous schooling in both Germany and the United States, combined with his strong background in prosthodontics (complex reconstructive and implant dentistry), allows Dr. Goodman to treat with confidence the most complicated and difficult cases of partial and full-mouth reconstruction. In concert with his world-renowned skills at creating beautiful, porcelain veneers, Dr. Goodman is able to transform the most challenging smiles into real beauty bites.
All aspects of modern dentistry are available at Dr. Goodman’s office including, but not limited to: Prophylaxis, fillings, porcelain and gold restorations, root canals, and removal of wisdom teeth.
