Are Veneers Right For You?

Are Veneers Right For You? Porcelain veneers are a common practice in cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are thin, custom made shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth in order to improve a patient’s smile. Veneers resist stains from food and drink better than the teeth because unlike enamel, veneers are not porous. Patients typically get veneers to remedy discolored, chipped or broken, or unevenly spaced teeth. Veneers may also be a good option for patients who haven’t had success with any alternative whitening methods. However, veneers are not right for everyone. Here’s what you need to know about porcelain veneers to determine if they are right for you:

You cannot get veneers in one sitting

Dentists cannot apply veneers in a single visit. The process is time-consuming and has multiple steps. Your dentist must first decide if you are a candidate for veneers, as there may be alternative treatments better suited to your situation.

Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are a set of third molars that typically develop between the ages of 17 and 25. Many people might associate wisdom teeth with funny videos of patients coming off of anesthesia; however, wisdom teeth can cause serious problems if they aren’t treated properly. In many cases, an individual’s mouth is too crowded to allow wisdom teeth to develop properly behind the molars, so the teeth become trapped, or impacted, when they begin to grow. Fully impacted wisdom teeth fully break through the surface of the gums, while a partially impacted tooth only breaks through to where some of the crown may be visible. In both cases, the tooth may grow at the improper angle, which can result in complications including: damage to other teeth, cysts, infection, decay, and gum disease. While impacted wisdom teeth do not always show symptoms, there are certain signs that m

Dentistry 101: Preventing Cavities

Dentistry 101: Preventing Cavities Tooth decay occurs when acid attacks the tooth and causes the enamel to lose minerals. Bacteria creates these acids as it feeds on the sugar in your food. Sometimes the enamel is able to recover on its own, however it is possible that permanent damage in the form of a cavity can develop where the enamel is destroyed. Cavities cannot heal on their own, and must be repaired by a dentist with a filling. If not treated, the tooth will continue to decay, causing pain, infection, and even tooth loss. The best way to protect your teeth from decay is to prevent cavities altogether. Here are a few tips to help keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free:

Brush and floss daily

By brushing and flossing daily, you can disrupt the plaque buildup that eventually leads to cavities. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing once daily.

Use toothpaste with fluoride
