In our last blog, we took a look at our take-home and in-office teeth whitening systems. Today, we would like to focus a little more on the causes of discoloration, namely, what you can do to prevent the onset of teeth stains. With a focus on your oral hygiene, you can improve oral health while also keeping your teeth brighter for longer periods.
With the holiday season approaching, we’re going to start seeing patients interested in obtaining a brighter smile. Fortunately, we have the ability to address dental discoloration thanks to our cosmetic treatment options. In today’s blog, try our fun quiz and learn more about our teeth whitening options.
Whether due to poor oral hygiene or a serious injury, you may find yourself faced with the loss of multiple teeth. Advanced tooth loss can cause serious problems and require a tooth replacement, such as dental implant. Can they also be used to support a dental prosthetic, such as a denture?
For cases of decay, we often recommend placing a tooth-colored filling. For more severe damage or advanced decay, we may place a lifelike dental crown (which we can create and place in one visit). However, occasionally we encounter damage or decay that doesn’t require a full crown and that a filling isn’t substantial enough to address. For these cases, we may recommend a partial crown, also known as an inlay or onlay.
