Dental Services | Woodshore Family Dentistry
It’s necessary to visit a dentist on a regular basis to keep your mouth healthy and ensure that you always have the perfect smile. In this article, we discuss some of the most popular services available at Woodshore Family Dentistry.
Keeping your teeth healthy and clean is absolutely necessary for a number of reasons. You probably already know just how much of an impact a good smile can have. People who smile often exude confidence, which opens a number of social and professional opportunities for them.
But if you suffer from dental issues such as yellowed teeth, crooked teeth, fractured teeth, etc, you may not feel confident about your smile. Some people resist the urge to smile and some even keep their lips tightly pursed because they’re ashamed of their teeth. Dental services can resolve those issues so you can be confident about yourself.
You should also visit a dental clinic frequently because your teeth are the most vulnerable parts of your body. No matter how well you take care of them, it’s possible that they may become diseased. That’s why you need to go for regular dental visits to a reputable dental clinic. Please continue reading for an overview of the most popular services available at Woodshore Family Dentistry.
Regardless of how well you brush and floss your teeth, you can’t remove all the tiny traces of food particles that may be stuck between your teeth or over your gum line. People who have misaligned teeth or crooked teeth are even more likely to get food particles stuck in their mouth. Over time, these food particles turn to a white sticky substance called plaque. And if you allow plaque to persist, it can harden into a substance called tartar that’s impossible to remove manually without professional intervention. The accumulation of plaque and tartar invites bacterial decay, which, in turn, leads to dangerous issues like gingivitis and periodontitis, which can seriously damage your teeth.
That’s why teeth cleaning on a regular basis is absolutely necessary. Professional teeth cleaning is a set of services provided by professional dentists or dental hygienists. The dental hygienist first removes all of the food particles, plaque, and tartar from your teeth. If there are pockets between your gums and teeth, they smoothen the roots in order to reattach gums to the teeth. And finally, they use a series of fluoride treatments to get rid of all the bacteria and protect your teeth from bacterial infection.
You should go for professional teeth cleaning every 3 to 6 months in order to ensure that your teeth remain perfectly healthy.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures deal with issues that affect the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. The following are some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures at Woodshore Family Dentistry.
Your teeth can get stained for a number of reasons — because of your dietary habits, smoking, medical issues, poor oral hygiene, age, or several other reasons. If you suffer from an underlying intrinsic discoloration, surface teeth whitening cannot help you. But if you suffer from surface stains, then you can really benefit from professional teeth whitening.
During a teeth whitening procedure, the dentist applies a whitening gel composed of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide to your teeth. The dentist may also apply laser energy over the whitening gel to catalyze it in order to bleach your teeth and get rid of all surface stains. This process can drastically increase the whiteness of your teeth. Find out more about Teeth Whitening.
Dental veneers are the perfect option for people whose teeth are seriously disfigured. These are basically thin shells that are attached to your original teeth in order to mask them. As such, even if you have crooked or discolored teeth internally, the dental veneers will give you the perfect smile externally. Find out more about Dental Veneers.
Zoom In-Office Whitening
Zoom In-Office whitening is one of the most advanced teeth whitening procedures out there. Regular teeth whitening or teeth bleaching procedures can only remove surface stains from the enamel but zoom in-office whitening can also remove stains from the dentin, making it a lot more effective.
During the procedure, the dentist uses a Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp. This speeds up the whitening process considerably by breaking down the hydrogen peroxide and allowing oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin. Find out more about Zoom In-Office Whitening.
If you don’t want to whiten your teeth at the dentist’s office, you can also opt for at-home whitening. You can consult your dentist initially so they can provide you with a teeth whitening kit and whitening strips. You simply have to apply the whitening gel to the strip and wear it on your mouth for a few hours every week. Find out more about At-Home Whitening.
Restorative Dentistry refers to a series of services or procedures that fix serious issues. For example, if you knock out your teeth, or seriously damage your teeth, or if you have cavities, restorative dentistry services can fix them. The following are the most popular restorative dentistry treatments available at Woodshore Family Dentistry.
Dental crowns are essentially tooth-shaped caps that can be attached over your existing teeth. If you have crooked teeth, disfigured teeth, or seriously rotten teeth, your dentist can prepare the perfect dental crowns that look and feel like real teeth. Once the dental crowns are prepared, they can simply be attached over your affected teeth. Find out more about Dental Crowns.
If you have several missing teeth, then you should get dental bridges. These are essentially a series of porcelain or ceramic teeth that can be attached in the location of the missing teeth. They essentially serve as replacements for your teeth that resemble actual teeth. Find out more about Dental Bridges.
Tooth Colored Fillings
We all get cavities from time to time. This can happen for a number of reasons and it’s nothing to be alarmed by. But you should act immediately before the cavity can spread further and infect more of your teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are basically porcelain or ceramic materials used to fill up the space left by the cavity. They have the same shade and texture as actual teeth so people can’t even tell that you have fillings. Find out more about Tooth Colored Fillings.
Do you have misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, or other similar dental issues? Orthodontics refers to a series of procedures or treatment that can rectify the position of your teeth and jaws. In most cases, you get fixed or removable appliances like metal braces or Invisalign — these appliances apply pressure on your teeth to gradually move them in the desired position over an extended period. Orthodontic procedures are ideal for people who have buck teeth, underbite, crossbite, open bite, misplaced midline, spacing issues, or overcrowded teeth.
