Inspire Your Smile
Whether tooth decay, systemic disease, trauma or natural effects of aging have impaired the appearance and function of one’s smile, advancements in restorative and cosmetic dentistry provide exciting options to inspire your smile.
Over time, teeth lose their protective layer, or enamel. This mostly occurs from daily uses, such as eating, chewing, and speaking. Yet, plaque and tartar also play a role, causing teeth to become brittle, while gums are more susceptible to the development of periodontal (gum) disease. Given this knowledge, it’s easy to understand why dental professionals urge patients to commit to regularly scheduled dental visits. Often referred to as “preventative dentistry,” regular dental examinations involve a professional dental cleaning and checkup. However, they are much more than that. Dentists look at regular checkups as the main way to enhance a patient’s smile through detecting problems early, providing conservative treatments that are less costly than others and maintaining the brightness of a patient’s smile.
While regular dental visits are the best way to preserve one’s natural smile, there are instances where teeth are missing or extracted. Without question, missing teeth affect the appearance and overall function of a smile. In addition, having missing teeth can result in bone loss within the jaw, which can lead to other serious conditions. That’s why dental implants have become a reliable and pleasing solution for replacing missing teeth. Generally, a titanium implant is inserted surgically into gum tissues, while a custom dental crown is placed on top. Not only does the implant prevent bone loss, it restores function to one’s smile, while the crown blends in with the color and shape of the patient’s natural teeth. Even so, other options include dental implant restorations and dentures.
