A Way To Fight Tough Teeth Stains

Is there anything you can do to brighten your smile if you have hard-to-ignore teeth stains?

To make a more significant change in the way you look, our Rowlett, TX dentist’s office can recommend professional whitening treatment. With this approach to care, you can deal with deeper, tougher stains in as little as one appointment, or after a round of daily treatments with a take-home treatment. We can also help you if you have discoloration that stems from something other than enamel stains. (more…)

Realigning Your Uneven Smile

We often think of orthodontic work as something that happens in our teen years. Malocclusion affects many people, but the problem can be recognized early and addressed before adulthood. However, not everyone has this procedure in this time, and some who do can see changes in their appearance as their teeth return to their original positions. Our Rowlett, TX dentist’s office can help you if you want to realign your uneven smile, even if you have already had your smile straightened in the past. We offer different treatment options, including Invisalign treatment, so that we can help you improve how you look. (more…)

Diet Choices And Dental Discoloration

The diet choices we make affect us in different ways. Obviously, one concern is that the wrong foods and drinks can affect our weight and general health. For someone who has a weakness for sweets, the wrong choices also lead to more cavity risks. You should also be aware of how what you consume affects your risk for developing teeth stains. A wide array of products can potentially leave stains that accumulate and worsen as time passes. Your Rowlett, TX dentist can help you deal with this problem. In fact, we can provide services to brighten your smile even if you have serious concerns about discoloration that have developed over time, or if you need to do something about other causes of discoloration.

How Long Should I Go Between Teeth Cleanings?

Hopefully, you take the time to clean your teeth every day. In fact, an effective oral hygiene routine should see you brush two times a day, and floss at least once. If you are consistent with this, your risk for experiencing dental or periodontal problems will go down. However, you should be careful not to assume that your routine is all you need to defend your teeth and gums from problems! At routine dental exams, you enjoy important reviews and feedback about your oral health as well as cleanings that make it easier to maintain a problem-free smile. Our Rowlett, TX dentist’s office is ready to work with you to help you maintain your oral health, but remember that we are also here to step in and treat you if something is wrong. (more…)

Digital Technology And Implant Placement

When you explore just how much trouble tooth loss can cause, keep in mind that missing teeth also leave you missing roots. Our teeth roots do more than just help with stability and bite support. They also provide support for their neighbors, which lowers your risk for those teeth becoming loose, or even being lost themselves. Our roots also stimulate our jawbone tissues, which is important for keeping the bone healthy through the years. At our Rowlett, TX dentist’s office, we can meet with you to discuss prosthetic treatment that relies on dental implants for support. Implants act in the place of lost roots. They can secure a restoration in its proper position, support neighboring teeth, and even provide stimulation for jawbone tissues. With the digital technology we rely on to plan your placement, we can ensure that your implant is set in the optimal position to provide lasting support. (more…)

Bruxism Can Hurt Your Smile – We Can Help

After years of friction from biting and chewing different foods, your teeth may start to show some signs of wear and tear. For many, these changes are difficult to notice, and not a cause for concern. With that said, some people experience more noticeable problems, and they can occur at an earlier age. One reason for this is that issues with bruxism, or persistent teeth grinding, can weaken enamel due to excess pressure. At our Rowlett, TX dentist’s office, we can do more than just help you protect yourself against further damage from bruxism. We can also discuss cosmetic services to restore your smile and hide problems with wear and tear! (more…)

When You Want Noticeably Whiter Teeth

By changing your diet to cut out products that can stain your enamel, you can prevent dental discoloration from growing worse. Of course, many people want to do more than just preserve the color of their teeth – they hope to make changes that can give them noticeably whiter smiles. When you start to look at your treatment options, you should know that store bought whitening agents can have limited benefits, as they may have trouble removing stains below the surfaces of your enamel. Fortunately, you can meet with your Rowlett, TX dentist to discuss either an in-office whitening procedure or the use of a take-home whitening kit that can offer more exciting improvements! (more…)

Let Invisalign Boost Your Smile Confidence

When your teeth are not properly aligned, it can be hard for you to feel fully confident in the way you look when you smile. Even minor problems with malocclusion are enough to negatively affect your appearance, as you can have problems with noticeable gaps or overlaps, or you can feel too aware of how your teeth make your face appear less symmetrical. What you should know is that with Invisalign aligners, your Rowlett, TX dentist can help you fix these issues without committing to fixed metal braces! Using Invisalign aligners to fix your smile can give you more confidence in the way you look, and they can help you deal with the oral health issues that malocclusion can create. (more…)

Removing Tartar To Keep Teeth Healthy

When you think about what it takes to keep teeth in good health, remember that you are not the only person who can provide preventive care for your smile. You should schedule dental exams on a regular basis so that you can stay informed about your oral health. In addition to providing reviews and feedback about your smile, patients at our Rowlett, TX dentist’s office also receive beneficial teeth cleanings. These sessions remove any tartar deposits that are present, something that you are not able to do on your own. If tartar buildup is not managed on a regular basis, it can make you more vulnerable to trouble with cavities as well as gum disease. (more…)
