Cavities are the most common and most preventable dental problem in the country today, occurring when residual sugars in the mouth are converted into acids which attack the enamel on the outside of teeth. As the acid eats its way through this protective layer, it exposes the delicate nerve center of the tooth. Exposed nerves can cause extreme pain and sensitivity to heat, cold, and pressure.
In order to correct a cavity, part of the damaged tooth is prepared and the hole is filled with a strong yet pliable substance. Fillings made of mercury, gold, and silver were popular for many years, but new advances in dental technology allow dentists to use composite resins or porcelain inlays and onlays. Unlike older and less attractive metal fillings, porcelain and resin fillings move with your tooth and offer better protection over a longer period of time. In addition to treating current cavities with these new procedures, more and more people are electing to replace their old fillings with new, cosmetically pleasing porcelain covers.
A dazzling, confident smile can be one of your most valuable assets and an imperfect one can be a lifelong liability. Luckily, there are several options for restoring the luster of a smile that has been compromised by disease, accidents, or genetics. By utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and new dental breakthroughs, cosmetic dentists can radically improve self-esteem and enhance confidence with a smile makeover.
A smile makeover is the perfect way to rectify problem areas and provide comprehensive improvements in the appearance of the mouth. The series of procedures employed during a smile makeover can straighten crooked teeth, repair chipped or broken ones, close gaps in the mouth and whiten stained and discolored teeth.
The loss of a tooth can be both painful and embarrassing, but it doesn’t have to be a permanent problem. A replacement tooth known as a dental implant can be placed into the jaw to repair the smile and boost confidence.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth inserted directly into the jaw through a simple and innovative procedure. Implants mirror the appearance and feel of a real tooth, can smooth out rough spots in a smile, and can improve a person’s ability to speak and eat. Should there be any need for further dental work such as a crown or bridge, an implant also provides an excellent anchor for these replacements.
Most people find that implants feel more natural and secure than dentures and other substitutes. If you have otherwise healthy gums and bone, you could be an ideal candidate for dental implants.
