How to Whiten Your Teeth Safely

professional teeth whitening Yuma

For a really pleasing smile, nothing beats clean white teeth. With professional teeth whitening from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, you can get a dazzling smile.

White teeth make anyone look younger, happier and more attractive. And it seems like there are more teeth whitening choices than ever before.

Commercial Whitening Products

There are a lot of whitening toothpastes on the market and you’ll find them in any grocery store. They can be moderately effective, lightening your teeth by about one shade.

Whitening strips and gels are also popular and easy to come by. They’re usually peroxide-based. You apply them for two weeks, twice a day. They may be able to brighten your teeth a shade or two. The results can last up to three or four months.

Nothing that comes out of a box from the store can match the whitening power of professional teeth whitening. We offer Glo Whitening, a light-activated system that can transform your smile in just one office visit.

For the whitest teeth possible, call The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ and ask about teeth whitening. We’ve brightened smiles for patients in Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton, who come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry services. We have a second office in Fortuna Foothills.

Aesthetic Dental Transformations

Aesthetic Dental Transformations in YumaMany people are enjoying the lasting benefits of cosmetic dentistry from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ. A sensational smile not only looks great, it makes you feel great!

When you first look in the mirror in the morning while brushing those gleaming babies, you remember; “Oh yeah, I fixed my teeth and they look great!”

When you smile at old friends or make new ones, you are happy to show off your new unforgettable grin. When you are in a professional setting speaking with colleagues or clients, you feel poised and self-assured.

We have talked about different cosmetic dentistry procedures in previous blog posts, but let’s review the most common.

  • Veneers are glass-like, wafer-thin covers that adhere to teeth. Porcelain veneers are sturdy and have the translucency of natural teeth. They correct chips, stains and misaligned teeth that do not require orthodontia. There are several companies that fabricate veneers. One of the well-known brand names is Lumineers.
  • Crowns correct more extensive tooth problems. They are used in a variety of situations such as the final restoration following a root canal or to restore teeth damaged by decay, injury, or periodontitis.
  • A dental implant is often the best replacement for a missing tooth. They are becoming a popular alternative to a dental bridge or partial dentures, especially among middle-aged professionals and individuals in the public eye.
  • Teeth whitening is the least invasive and speediest way to brighten your smile several shades.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we have transformed countless smiles with cosmetic dentistry. Patients from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to us for complete general dentistry. We also have an office in Fortuna Foothills. Schedule an appointment today!

Health Habits To Keep You Smiling

habits to keep teeth healthy Yuma

In this post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we focus on critical behaviors that influence dental health. Of course, effective brushing and flossing are two important habits for healthy teeth, but there are many more things we can do to keep a healthy smile.

Diet Do’s

  • Do eat a nutritious diet with a variety of foods. This is needed for overall physical health and a strong immune system.
  • Do consume calcium-rich dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt to neutralize acids that are detrimental to enamel.

Diet Don’ts

  • Don’t eat sugary foods. Sugar triggers the production of detrimental cavity-causing acids that weaken enamel and lead to cavities.
  • Don’t snack throughout the day. This accelerates plaque production and subjects the teeth to continual contact with acids.
  • Don’t chew on ice (it really can crack teeth.)
  • Don’t drink energy drinks. They have many substances that are detrimental to teeth.
  • Other Important Tips
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools. It is better to cut that knotted shoelace than to gnaw at it to try to untangle it.
  • Don’t get piercings in or around your mouth.
  • Don’t ignore tooth pain or sensitivity.
  • If you have children, ask us about water fluoridation. If your municipal water supply is not fluoridated, you may want to give your little ones fluoride supplements.
  • Don’t use a medium or hard bristle toothbrush. It can damage gums.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we encourage all of our patients to maintain a lifestyle that promotes dental health as well as overall physical health. Our services include general and restorative dentistry, and restorative dentistry. We also have an office in Fortuna Foothills. Schedule your next checkup with us today!

Are You Getting Your Dose Of D?

pediatric dentist

This message from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ is a reminder of the importance of Vitamin D. Are you getting enough?

Most people know that Vitamin D is essential for healthy teeth and bones, but many of us fail to get adequate amounts.

Here is a sampling of Vitamin D findings, gleaned from a few quick Google searches:

“Several recent reports demonstrate a significant association between periodontal health and the intake of Vitamin D.”

“Researchers who took a second look at a series of clinical trials conducted on 2,000 children in several countries between the 1920s and 1980s determined Vitamin D — which we often garner from sunlight — was associated with around a 50 percent reduction in the incidence of tooth decay.”

“Inadequate Vitamin D levels in pregnant women may be associated with dental caries in their children during the first year of life.”

“The sun is an excellent source of Vitamin D, but it is hard to quantify how much Vitamin D you get from time in the sun and the risk of skin cancer may outweigh the benefits. Food first, says Baylor College of Medicine dietitian Keli Hawthorne. “Supplements can fill in the gaps but it is always better to try to meet your nutritional needs with foods that contain fiber, phytonutrients, and so much more.”

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ we encourage our patients to practice preventative medicine by eating a healthy diet complete with all vital nutrients. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, and we also have an office in Fortuna Foothills. Call for an appointment today!

Take Care Of Your Toothbrush!

Yuma Dental Patients Take Care Of Your Toothbrush!

The common household toothbrush. Every home has at least one, and at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we hope our patients are all brushing their teeth after each meal. Regular brushing and flossing are still the most important things you can do for your dental health.

It has been said that each toothbrush can contain millions of bacteria. But when you’ve got a healthy immune system, they pose no threat.

That said, a few common-sense tips might keep any unnecessary germs from affecting your toothbrushes.

  • Be sure to store your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible, and close the toilet lid before flushing. Each flush of the toilet releases a spray of bacteria into the air, so it’s best to just eliminate the spray.
  • Bacteria like a moist environment, so store your toothbrush upright so it can dry completely between uses.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months.

Brushing and flossing are the key to good dental health, and doing both each day will keep your risk for gum disease, cavities, and bad breath low.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, your dental health is our top priority every single day. Services include general and restorative dentistry. We also have an office in Fortuna Foothills. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!

A Youthful Smile At Any Age

implant dentures Yuma

Aging is an unavoidable fact of life. While some of the challenges that come with it cannot be avoided, others can. At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we help patients of all ages with their dental health issues.

Many dental problems that are common with aging include missing teeth, gum recession, tooth damage, and yellowed enamel. In most cases, these issues can be remedied.

Some people think losing their teeth as they age is inevitable. It isn’t. With a proper dental health routine at home and regular cleanings and checkups in our office (just like you’ve always done, we hope) your teeth can last a lifetime.

But the mouth undergoes changes as we age. The nerves in teeth may get smaller, to the point where teeth are not as sensitive to cavities and other issues. That means you may not feel as much tooth pain from, for example, a cavity as you once did. Regular checkups become that much more important.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we want to see all our patients in for a cleaning and checkup twice a year. Dental health is important, no matter your age! Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, and we’ve got an office in Fortuna Foothills. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
