If your teeth changed color, there are probably numerous reasons for it. Some common causes involve eating, drinking and lifestyle habits, such as eating sugary foods, drinking coffee and smoking. While most people choose to perform teeth whitening at home, when you schedule an appointment, our dentist can better assist you with recommendations that are well-suited for your dental needs.
Teeth cleanings are highly recommended since bacteria and plaque regularly accumulate regardless of daily brushing and flossing. Our teeth cleaning process includes a thorough tooth examination, getting rid of the plaque and tartar, flossing and polishing your teeth. Moreover, our dentist can offer you additional information about how to take good care of your oral health between visits.
Many people who experience tooth decay and plaque build-up assume their only option is tooth extraction. There are other options, such as crowns. Crowns can preserve your natural tooth, as their purpose is to cover the affected area, preventing further damage. Some procedures that require dental crowns are:
Chipped or broken teeth which are immediately visible when you smile or speak.
Root canal treatment could also be the cause as it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed.
Weak and damage-prone teeth that could be at risk of getting weaker can be saved by a crown, although this is more of a temporary solution.
A crown may also be fitted for cosmetic reasons.
An abscessed tooth is when the tissue surrounding it or the gum around it is infected. The infection can spread to the base of the tooth and cause further problems if not treated promptly.
The causes of an abscessed tooth can vary and include poor dental hygiene, excessive consumption of processed foods, improper dental hygiene, an isolated incident or general physical issues.
We treat abscesses with considerable care, in a way that alleviates all symptoms of the condition, relieving the pain the condition can cause.
If the usual traditional braces are not suitable for you, we have an alternative. Invisalign are clear, custom-made aligners made to fit your dental structure.
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and fit perfectly over your teeth and are engineered to provide the right amount of pressure to your teeth in the right places. The purpose of this is to move your teeth gradually into the perfect alignment, following a treatment plan created by our dentist. Invisalign is a great new solution for your alignment needs.
Braces can be used to effectively correct alignment and crowded teeth. Even if your teeth are straight, your upper and lower jaw might not meet properly due to misalignment. Such problems can result in other oral problems like decay, tooth loss, and jaw issues.
