Cosmetic Dentistry Gives You a Reason to Smile

Cosmetic Dentistry Gives You a Reason to Smile

"A smile is a curve that sets everything straight" Phyllis Diller

It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.

Chipped or discolored teeth make you feel self conscience without a lot to smile about. Perhaps you have considered having your teeth corrected and wonder if   cosmetic dentistry  is right for you. Choosing the proper procedure for your smile needs will help you to feel and look great.

For many years there has been a misconception about cosmetic dentistry. General dentistry tends to the care and maintenance of your teeth. Preventative care is often emphasized which includes checkups and dental cleanings every 6 months. Cosmetic dentistry is different from general or preventative dental care, it's a specialized field that corrects how your smile looks.

While selecting a qualified cosmetic dentist can require some research, if your lucky, your general dentist specializes in cosmetic dentistry as in the case of My Scottsdale Dentist. Both Dr. Poulos and Dr. Stevens are skilled in cosmetic dentistry.

Here are some procedures that our practice routinely does:

Inlays and outlays indirect fillings that use either composite resin or porcelain shells

Composite teeth bonding repairs chipped, discolored or decayed teeth. The process uses a composite teeth bond that's sculpted to fit, and hardened to create a bond with the tooth. This procedure is appealing because of the bonding material's longevity and is routinely applied to correct numerous cosmetic dental issues.

All-on-4 Utilizes only 4 implants for the upper and lower jaw to secure a permanent set of natural looking, replacement teeth. If you wear dentures, are not a good candidate for traditional implants or experienced significant tooth loss this procedure is a good alternative.

If you are suffering from crooked, missing or stained teeth you are a perfect candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Each case is unique and so is the solution and the dentists at My Scottsdale Dentist will design the perfect treatment plan for your needs.

Many times, a single visit is all that is required to give you the smile you've always wanted so what are you waiting for? Call Dr. Steve Poulos and Sid Stevens at My Scottsdale Dentist in Scottsdale, Arizona. They will take the time to address your dental concerns and give you a reason to smile!

How Can You Maintain And Care For Your Veneers?

How Can You Maintain And Care For Your Veneers?

In a number of ways, maintaining and caring for your veneers can be compared to taking care of your normal teeth. However, there can be special considerations that you need to think about when you are caring for your veneers. When you choose to have your veneers done in Scottsdale, regular visits and using proper care will ensure that you keep the color and texture for several years. If you do not properly care for your veneers, they can easily become chipped, cracked, stained, loose, or they could just come off completely.

When you follow the advice below, you should be able to maintain your veneers and your smile.

Care At Home

When you brush your teeth and floss your teeth regularly, you are making an important step in maintaining the health of your veneers. At My Scottsdale Dentist, our doctors, Dr. Steven Poulos and Dr. Sid Stevens, will give you recommendations on the kind of toothpaste you should purchase to use with your veneers. Yes, there are toothpastes that are made just for veneers to ensure you keep that beautiful smile.

You should give your veneers the same kind of attention that you would give your normal teeth. This care and attention is extremely important in keeping your overall oral hygiene at a top-notch level. You can still develop different types of periodontal diseases or gum diseases when you have veneers. If you do not properly care for your veneers, you may face years of dental problems.

At My Scottsdale Dentist, we have the equipment and experience to clean your veneers without causing any damage or discoloration. When you have a proper cleaning, you can actually get rid of some of the discoloration. You will not be able to whiten your veneers by using a teeth whitening kit.

If you want to learn how we can help you care for and maintain your veneers, contact us today.
