Who is a candidate for dental implants?
If you’re considering dental implants, we’ll ask you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parlitsis so he can determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Generally speaking, if you are in good health, have healthy gums, and have the bone mass needed to support dental implants, you are likely eligible for a dental implant restoration.
How often should you have professional teeth cleanings?
The American Dental Association recommends teeth cleanings every six months, at the same time as your comprehensive dental evaluations. These teeth cleanings remove tartar that can’t be cleaned by brushing alone. Once your teeth are clean, they are polished to remove surface stains and create a smooth surface that makes it harder for new plaque deposits to form.
What can cosmetic dentistry fix?
Cosmetic dentistry can fix any aesthetic concern you might have about your teeth—their color, size, shape, and alignment. There are also restorative dental treatments, like crowns, bridges, and dental implants, that have both functional and cosmetic benefits—in other words, they improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
How can I get white teeth in one day?
Professional in-office teeth whitening treatments are the only way to get a dramatically whiter smile in a single day. If you’d like to whiten your teeth before a special event or occasion and don’t have time for at-home whitening treatments, in-office whitening is the perfect solution.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
Veneers are an excellent option for patients who have healthy teeth and gums, but are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles. For teeth that are damaged or weakened, a crown is typically used instead of a veneer, as it improves strength and function in addition to appearance.
