How Often Can I Whiten My Teeth at Home?

Teeth whitening has become a popular cosmetic procedure that can be accomplished at home or in the dental office. The options for whitening your teeth at home are endless and even more affordable than ever. Whitening systems vary from something as simple as a toothpaste, to a more complex gel, rinse, strip or tray.

Straighten your Smile with Invisalign

Straighten your Smile

Are you dreaming of having a perfectly straight smile? Misaligned teeth can cause people to avoid smiling with their teeth and can be frustrating.

How You Can Get a Crown in Just One Visit

In the past, cosmetic dentistry could be extremely expensive and time consuming. After all, the more time, effort, and materials your dentist has to use to correct your smile, the more a procedure will cost. For this reason, many people put off getting a crown when they need one, or they might try to opt for extraction instead of saving the tooth. However, with CEREC crowns you can get your crown in just one visit, making it more affordable and convenient.

The process for getting a CEREC crown is fairly straightforward. At your first ever appointment, you will have a dental exam and x-rays. At the beginning of your crown appointment, the tooth will be scraped and prepared to accept the crown. After this has been finished, a digital impression is taken of your tooth that will be covered with the crown. Read More

Why Cosmetic Dentistry Isn’t Just About Your Smile

You may be self-conscious about your smile or the fact that you are lacking teeth, but you may not fully understand how it affects you and your overall health. Cosmetic dentistry is designed to restore your smile. While dentures, implants, or bridges can be expensive, they are a wise investment for both your appearance and your health.

Teeth Are Important to Your Health

Your ability to chew properly and nourish your body is directly related to the state of your mouth. If you are missing several or all of your teeth, you are likely not chewing effectively. If you are only missing a few teeth, the rest of your mouth is working overtime to compensate for those missing teeth. This can cause a number of problems, including issues with the structure of the mouth and putting undue stress on particular remaining teeth or the jaw.

If you don’t have enough teeth to chew effectively, your body cannot get the nourishment it needs. You may find yourself avoiding foods because they are too hard to eat, such as red meat. The food that you do eat will not be chewed efficiently, which makes the stomach work harder to break down the food so that it can be utilized by the body. Read More

Treating Your Face? Give Attention to Your Neck, Too

Most people associate signs of aging with wrinkles and lost volume on the face, but don’t forget that your neck and chest are vulnerable as well!
