Do You Love Your Smile?

Yuma Cosmetic Dentistry

The people who are happiest with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. If nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone. Most perfect smiles you see were not always that way: they are the result of cosmetic dentistry, like what we provide at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ.

Two common smile issues are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth

Few of us are blessed with pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and dental cleanings,  teeth darken as we age.

That explains the popularity of teeth whitening. Can you picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile? Teeth whitening makes it possible!

Damaged Teeth

Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. If you would like to fix your tooth flaws, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding have been used with great results for many years.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ, we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to our practice for complete general dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!

The Tea And Teeth Question

Yuma teeth bleaching best price

Here’s a riddle from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.

Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post, we’ll talk about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages, including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Daily oral hygiene is vital.

Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking tea. Be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider professional teeth whitening.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ our teeth whitening can transform yellow or dull teeth. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton trust their smiles to our cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!

It Doesn’t Take A Lot Of Time To Beautify Your Smile

Somerton cosmetic smile makeover

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ, we can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Possibilities include restoring cracked or discolored teeth, straightening them, or even by replacing those that are missing.

We all want to have the best possible smiles, but cosmetic dentistry is more than just appearance. Straight teeth are easier to care for, and make for a healthier smile. That may explain why clear braces are so popular. They can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can transform your appearance and are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile.

Dental implants are, in many ways, one of the most significant advances in the history of dentistry. Titanium posts inserted in the jaw can support one or more replacement teeth that look and function like the real thing.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ, cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to us for complete general dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Is Perfect Possible?

cosmetic dentistry http://yumafamilydentist.com

Are you thinking about improving your appearance with a smile makeover? Are you skeptical when you hear promises of a “perfect” or “celebrity” smile? Well, at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ, so are we.

After all, perfect is a pretty tall order. So let’s do a reality check, and review two of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures and the results you can expect.

Porcelain Veneers

The application of porcelain veneers can remedy several aesthetic dental problems. They can fix chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size.

Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While veneers don’t repair decay, they can turn unappealing teeth into beautiful, aesthetically perfect teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that dramatically improves a smile. However, some dentists guarantee amazing results for any patient who wants a whiter smile.

We only recommend teeth whitening for patients who are good candidates. If you have crowns in the front of your mouth, or gums that have receded, conventional teeth whitening may not lighten your smile.

These and other cosmetic dentistry solutions create sensational smiles, at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton love our mercury-free dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

In this post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ, we begin with something we’d classify as Murphy’s Law.

You leave the house on a pressing errand, looking completely disheveled. Inevitably, you bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your ill-fitting sweatpants and stained T-shirt?

Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost morale for most people. But do you know what others notice first? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Study after study has shown that sensational teeth and eyes always capture attention.

Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts. But beautiful smiles are within reach, because we can work miracles with cosmetic dentistry. We can turn ordinary smiles into stunning first-impressions.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Available cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening. We can transform your smile from dull to dazzling.
  • Porcelain veneers. Cover chips, cracks, and other tooth imperfections.
  • Dental implants. Replace missing teeth with state-of-the-art implants that look and function like natural teeth.

If you are not satisfied with your smile, cosmetic dentistry from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ can help. Patients from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to us for complete general dentistry services. Call to find out what we can do for your smile!

Teeth that are damaged or misshapen can really detract from your smile, but thanks to cosmetic dentistry from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills AZ, you can do something about these and other issues. There are fixes for nearly any tooth problem!

Some of the most popular and effective procedures include:

  • Veneers. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin shells of medical-grade ceramic, custom-made to match the from of your teeth. They are cemented in place to dramatically improve your smile.
  • Bonding. This procedure uses a strong tooth-colored resin to close spaces, repair chips and cracks, or change the shape. The resin is molded into place and hardened for secure adherence.
  • Recontouring. Thismeans reshaping a tooth by removing small bits of enamel to improve its shape or length.
  • Crowns. Natural-looking dental crowns cover the tops of damaged teeth.
  • Clear Braces. Patients of all ages are transforming their smiles with clear braces. They are removable, so they come out at mealtime and when you brush your teeth. Best of all, they work!

Beautifying With Bonding

Yuma fix chipped tooth

Bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure we use frequently at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills AZ. It’s one of the easiest ways we have to improve the appearance of a tooth that is chipped or cracked, or even discolored.

Bonding is a fairly simple and straight-forward procedure. In fact, in most cases we don’t even need to use anesthesia, unless we’re filling a cavity – another of bonding’s uses. Depending on the complexity of a given case, bonding usually takes thirty minutes to an hour.

After roughening the part of the tooth we’re working on, we apply a bonding agent that will a composite resin material to the tooth. Once the resin is in place it’s molded into shape and hardened with an ultraviolet light.

Finally, the composite material is polished into its final appearance. We’re generally able to match its color to the color of your teeth, so when we’re done the treated area is virtually indistinguishable.

Bonding is one of the simplest ways to fix a tooth defect or imperfection, and it’s among the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills AZ. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to our practice for sleep apnea and snoring treatment. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

Foothills cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Porcelain veneers do not make your teeth look larger – unless you want them to. A veneer can correct many flaws and is a minimally invasive restoration. Porcelain veneers are among the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills AZ.

Veneers are an easy way to cover chips or cracks in your teeth, or gaps between them. They are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic cemented to the front of your teeth. Each veneer is custom-fitted to the tooth it is being affixed to.

Although veneers are generally considered a cosmetic procedure, they can also be used to replace lost enamel. The enamel that covers teeth is one of the strongest substances in the human body, but it can be damaged from years of consuming acidic foods or drinks, by acid reflux, or even by brushing your teeth too vigorously over the years. Veneers are an excellent remedy.

One caveat: when a veneer is placed over a tooth, a thin layer of existing enamel must be removed to make room for it. That means they are a permanent procedure.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered here at the Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Hills A. Find out why people from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton trust us with their smiles! Call for an appointment today!
