Patients will often combine multiple treatments, such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, in order to achieve the desired esthetic results for their smiles. When multiple interventions are planned, special consideration must be given to the sequencing of these treatments.
Even when you are undergoing restorative or cosmetic treatments, you still need to schedule routine exams and cleanings with Dr. Seal on a regular basis. Your regular hygiene visits ensure that your teeth, gums, and bone tissue are healthy enough to support your restorations.
Dentures can be a great solution for missing teeth, but it is important to set the proper expectations prior to receiving your new dentures.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry procedures, capable of completely transforming your smile and correcting a wide range of smile flaws with minimal office visits. Veneers are thin shells of high quality dental-grade porcelain that are bonded to the surface of your teeth, and created by hand to match the rest of your smile.
Patients who want to use teeth whitening treatments to enhance their smiles often ask about various aspects of treatment, such as effectiveness, side effects and length of the treatment’s results
Dental implants have the ability to restore 100% of the function of natural teeth while other replacements have as little as a sixth of the function.
Many people don’t realize that stress can affect oral health in addition to overall well-being . In your mouth, this stress often manifests as TMJ dysfunction and/or tooth wear.
The loss of a tooth has a negative effect on your smile’s appearance and function, but a dental bridge offers a good tooth replacement alternative that can look and feel like your biological teeth.
Healthy, structurally complete teeth work together to support each other and to facilitate important tasks like chewing and speaking. Following tooth loss, dental implants preserve much of that function and this benefits the patient’s oral health.
