You may not think it’s an absolute necessity, but your oral health is just as significant as your overall wellness. Fact is, this is one reason dentists never run out of business. The answer is pretty obvious – their services are not an option for people to ignore or else sooner than later you will be forced to pay the dentist a visit, either from incessant toothache, decay or social embarrassment from mouth odor. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), about 50% of Americans visit their dentists each year and most of them have excellent overall health status.
Laser dentistry procedures are among the most innovative treatment options available for completing a root canal, removing decay and improving the smile. The Waterlase™ dental laser procedure is a high-tech solution that reduces the discomfort associated with many dental procedures by spraying atomized water and administering laser energy accurately and effectively into the treatment area. This innovative technology can be used to create a smile makeover, for soft tissue procedures, and also for cavity preparation.
Crooked teeth can be aligned with braces and several types of cosmetic dentistry procedures on an outpatient basis. Whether you have one or several crooked teeth, you can undergo a cosmetic dentistry procedure that will correct the imperfections and help you achieve that picture-perfect smile.
Since most health insurance providers don’t cover the costs of elective surgery, your cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure may be financed out of your own pocket. Still, saving money for your treatment isn’t the only way to manage cosmetic or plastic surgery costs; financing plans, credit cards and personal loans can help you get the procedure you need without overextending your monthly budget.
Ever look in the mirror and shutter at the thought of smiling? You are not alone. Cosmetic dentists meet people everyday who feel that way about their smile. But there is hope. These dentists will tell you, the most popular way to improve your smile is through the use of porcelain veneers.
You’ve made an investment to achieve that picture-perfect smile with porcelain veneers, but those amazing results won’t last forever without the right care plan. You will need to take extra good care of your teeth and gums after getting veneers because any dental problems can take their toll on the veneers. Since veneers are attached to your teeth, any gum or hygiene problems can be even more problematic because the gum tissues can swell and become puffy. Cosmetic Dentistry doctors will provide you with a care plan after treatment, but it’s up to you to take good care of your oral health and your new teeth.

‘Tis the season for family gatherings, special events and many meals around the holiday dinner table. It’s also the time of year when overindulging in sweet treats and desserts can become part of the daily diet, and though that occasional splurge won’t do much harm to your diet regiment, eating and drinking sugar-laden treats all season long can take its toll on your teeth.
