Loss of a front tooth can be a traumatizing experience. Recent advances in dental technology have allowed dentists to restore these missing teeth while leaving adjacent teeth untouched, and allowing the patient to look and feel as if the tooth was never lost. Dental implants used in the front of the mouth are of a narrow diameter and are surgically placed into the patient’s bone where the tooth was lost. The dentist uses custom attachments and a lab fabricated porcelain crown to replace the missing tooth and restore the patient to optimum esthetics.
Back teeth are usually the first teeth in the mouth subject to decay, and sometimes unfortunately the first of the permanent teeth that a patient will lose. This can be due to a number of reasons; most often a cavity that has grown into a large infection that is untreatable or a failing root canal can lead to this outcome. With the latest advent in dental technology, these teeth are now able to be restored without touching the adjacent teeth. A dental implant can be placed surgically into the bone where the tooth was lost. Then, a dentist uses custom attachments and a lab fabricated crown to restore the patient to optimum esthetics and function.
The only approved way to brighten the smile and eliminate extrinsic dental stains is through teeth whitening treatment. Our dentist offers several different types of tooth whitening to our patients, to ensure they are confident in showing off their smile.
Our dentist will apply a liquid or gel directly to each tooth, and activated with a special light or laser. This will abrade the teeth in order to remove extrinsic stains. Some treatments offer results up to eight shades brighter, however some patients may return for another to get to the level of brightness they desire.
There are some ways that patients can ensure their smile stays white after their whitening appointment. Miranda Dental Centre dentist recommends avoiding certain foods and drinks that are highly pigmented. This includes berries, pasta sauce, hard candies, and chocolate, as well as tea, coffee, energy drinks, and dark sodas. Bad lifestyle habits will also be harmful to the look of the teeth, such as smoking tobacco. Naturally, cleaning the teeth by brushing and flossing is vital for removing left over food debris and bacteria.
For more information about how to keep the teeth bright, or recommendations on whitening products, talk to our dentist before or during your whitening appointment.
