Depending on one’s background and experiences with dental care, they may feel tremendous stress and anxiety about visiting the dentist. Unfortunately, this fear of pain is the reason why many individuals avoid the dentist altogether.
Chances are, you want healthy teeth and gums, right? Given the many connections between oral and overall health, dentists continue to devote more time to patient education and awareness, along with an emphasis on working together to prevent tooth and gum disease. In a nutshell, this is the purpose of preventative dentistry, which includes a commitment to regular dental checkups and good oral care at home.
For teeth that are discolored, crooked, chipped, misaligned, or misshaped, porcelain veneers and dental composite bonding continue to be popular options in cosmetic dentistry. Yet, with minimal or zero tooth preparation, “no-prep” ceramic-based veneers are providing new possibilities for patients that are pursuing alternatives to traditional veneers or dental bonding.
When one or more of your teeth are missing, it’s difficult to eat and speak, the shape of your face may change, and the last thing that you want to do is smile or laugh. Thus, as a bridge to a better smile, Dental Bridges fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
