WE LOVE IT WHEN OUR PATIENTS ARE HAPPY

We received the following Facebook message from our new patient, Kendall Bridgewater, who came to us for a consultation about getting veneers. We are so thrilled he enjoyed his experience with us. Stay tuned for some before and after pics!

"Thank you so much for the recommendation...what a great place. It was comfortable and relaxing. It was just a great atmosphere. Your husband is super cool, and the price was way cheaper that the last place I had work done at. For once, I am looking forward to going back to the dentist...LOL."

ARE SILVER FILLINGS SAFE?

Silver fillings, commonly known as dental amalgams in our dental world, were the chosen material used on teeth because of its performance under chewing or biting, durability, longevity, cost and ease of placement. The American Dental Association (ADA) states "Dental amalgam has been used by dentists for more than a century and is the most thoroughly researched and tested restorative material among all those in use today."

But what exactly is IN the dental amalgam? 

Dental amalgam is a stable alloy made by combining mercury, silver, tin and copper in careful proportions mixed in a precise blend so there is no free or excess mercury. The ADA states "there is no 'free' ...

GRANDMOTHER, YOUR TEETH ARE SO....WHITE!

All the better to smile at you, my dear!

Teeth whitening has become so popular that is has become a regular part of a patient's treatment plan (after the needed dental work has been done). Due to lifestyle and eating habits, our teeth can get stained, dull or discolored. Don't worry, we don't judge!

The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco. And over time, teeth can actually become more absorbant and vulnerable to staining from food and other agents.

Some "whitening toothpastes" can be somewhat effective at removing stains ...

CHOOSING THE RIGHT TOOTHBRUSH

ProHealth. Soft bristles. Contoured. Electric.

Never before has there been such a dizzying array of toothbrushes available to us. Consumers are inundated with new designs, materials, attachments, and colors. Whatever toothbrush design you choose, the most important thing is that you use that toothbrush at least 2-3 times a day (morning, afternoon, and evening).

Moreover, how long you spend brushing your teeth is as critical as how often you  brush. We recommend that you spend 2-3 minutes brushing, or for the length of your average song on the radio. Do a little dance, if you have to.
