Your smile is an important piece of your self- confidence. When you are happy with your smile, you are obviously much more willing to talk, socialize, and flash your pearly whites. You also understand that there is much more to good oral care than a great smile. The health of your teeth can affect your overall well-being. Choosing a dentist to take care of you and your family’s needs is an important decision. You need to find someone who has kept up-to-date with all the latest technology, yet still offers compassionate and thorough service. A Delray Beach cosmetic dentist can offer excellent dental care for the entire family.
A quality cosmetic dentist will always tell you that routine dental exams are an essential piece in properly taking care of our teeth. When you schedule regular check-ups, the dentist will find small problems before they become big and expensive issues. The office uses an x-ray machine that provides digital radiograph 3-D imaging.
These new x-rays, plus the traditional bite-wing films help your dentist quickly and thoroughly examine your teeth and gums. If you need additional work performed on your teeth, all services are provided including white fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions—including wisdom teeth, night guards, periodontal maintenance, and more. Each examination room comes equipped with a television, and your dentist and hygienist will do everything they can to help make your visit as easy and stress-free a possible.
There are lots of things that can dull the whiteness of your teeth. Stains and darker shades can be caused by tea, soda, and coffee. Medications you took in childhood or illnesses you suffered could also have damaged the color of your teeth. Improper oral hygiene can also lead to a duller smile. Zoom! is a professional whitening service that can help whiten your teeth. The Zoom! treatment is a safe, in-office procedure that takes under an hour to perform. A gel is placed on your teeth and a special light helps activate the gel to whiten your teeth.
Losing a tooth or multiple teeth can honestly be quite devastating. Not only can your self-confidence take a major hit, tooth loss can cause nutrition issues and other health problems. For years, full or partial dentures were the only really viable option to safely replace missing teeth. For several years, however, dentists have been progressively using and improving a service called dental implants. Instead of gluing fake teeth onto your gums, your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist will place a metal post into your jaw bone. The bone and gums will grow and heal around the post. A fake tooth made from materials that are compatible with your body is then placed on the post. The new tooth is very durable and will function as well as a natural tooth.
