This time of year, we are understandably focused on the things we need to do for others. But sometimes, this burden can prevent us from taking the necessary steps to keep us at our best. Our friends and our family rely on us to be the best we possibly can be. Having the best smile possible can be a great way to surprise your loved ones during the holidays!
While the time is getting near, there are things you can do to ensure you look and feel your best. Speak with your trained oral health care provider about the possibilities in bringing your smile to a new level. From an effortless whitening refresher to repair of normal wear and tear, don’t let your dental concerns wait until the new year. Today, your Livonia, MI dentist shows you some of the quicker ways we can improve your smile before you see your friends and family for the holidays!
One of the most common concerns among patients in dental clinics across the globe is tooth damage. Since we are constantly using our mouths to eat things that are quite tough, small chips or breaks may occur within the enamel. Other sources of physical trauma from sports or a fall can also lead to this situation.
In these cases, one fantastic way of restoration is through the use of dental composite bonding. This process is the recrafting of tooth tissue using a strong resin. After the material takes the proper shape, a strong uv light hardens this until it is a functional strength. Then after polishing and fine shaping, your repaired tooth will be abel to withstand daily usage.
A White Christmas
Another common smile issue we see here in the office is through discoloration and staining. We encounter many different substances through the course of a day, including some things with very strong staining potential. When this continues over the course of months and even years, you might be looking for a way to turn back the hands of time.
Our whitening procedure allows for the gentle removal of stains rather than relying upon harsh bleaching. The experience of a trained oral health professional can help avoid some of the issues with at-home therapy, as well. Over-whitening can lead to enamel weakening, which can cause dental sensitivity. So it is important that you approach this in the safest way possible!
