smiling coupleThere are consequential new developments in Arizona dentistry: stronger, natural-looking materials; improved techniques; more effective diagnostic methods; and more precise instruments. Combine these with the experience and expertise of Dr. Mann, and you’re left with less of what used to make people dread going to the dentist.

Less Pain
Improved painkillers, lasers, and cutting-edge techniques take the pain out of dental procedures.

Less Inconvenience
Laser dentistry, which employs powerful beams of light, has significantly reduced the time required to complete dental treatment.

Less Time Needed To Heal
Laser dentistry helps curb recovery times for procedures such as dental implants, root canals, smile makeovers, and other types of oral surgery.

Less Risk
The overall success rate of many dental procedures, including dental implants, has increased.

The Differences Between General And Cosmetic Dentistry

dentistry-gorgeous-smilesWelcome to our cosmetic dentistry blog. Today’s article focuses on the difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.

General dentists are dedicated to preventing and treating oral disease such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, let’s say, a cavity between two teeth, a general dentist will assess the best way to restore the tooth involved.

Yuma cosmetic dentists perform elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Cosmetic dentistry procedures available at The Yuma Dentist include teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.

Some dentists, like us, offer both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a  dental patient comes in after receiving an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth needs to be restored to prevent decay. The tooth is also less structurally sound, so it is vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile. Depending on the specifics of the damage, there are several of restorative options. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all used to repair a damaged tooth.

As you can see, there is not always a definitive line between general and cosmetic dentistry. At The Yuma Dentist, our caring team provides a full spectrum of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures. We treat Yuma area patients of all ages: from toddlers just beginning to get their baby teeth to mature patients who remember the days when many people were afraid of dentists and their whiny drills. (Some of our wonderful elderly patients have crowns that are twice as old as our hygienists.)

Experienced dental professionals who perform pediatric, general, orthodontic, and cosmetic dental procedures can meet all of your family’s dental needs.

If you are looking for a full-service dental practice in the Yuma area, we invite you to come into The Yuma Dentist.

The Facts About Tooth Whitening

lp_love-your-smileHere at The Yuma Dentist we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles – what we can do in our Provo office and what you can do at home. For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for lightening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes more affordable.

Additionally, we advise you regarding food and drink choices that can affect your whitened smile. Be aware of staining culprits such as coffee, tea, tobacco and harsh sodas. We understand that avoiding these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.

Awareness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary drink can cut down on the contact your teeth have with such substances. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can lead to stronger staining and discoloration.

If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and creating a more confident appearance for your professional career or personal relationships, contact The Yuma Dentist,

Come discover the personal attention with mini implants, the patient and steady hand with dental crowns, the wise and thorough instruction relating to sedation dentistry. When it comes to hygiene and healthy teeth we are a practice that wants to see you as little as possible. (It’s not that we don’t love you – we just want you to have a healthy smile!) If we only see you twice a year for regular checkups then we’ve done our job.

Dr. Mann  provides the full spectrum of dental services from cosmetic dentistry to family dentistry to dental implants.

Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening

lp_love-your-smileThere is nothing like bright white teeth that light up a person’s whole face when they smile and laugh. No one has to settle for dull, yellow teeth.

This is a great time for Yuma men, women and teens to get a deep teeth cleaning and tooth whitening at The Yuma Dentist. With a deep cleaning followed by teeth bleaching, your teeth will feel as good as they look.

If you have an important upcoming event such as a wedding, party or formal family portrait sitting, a smile makeover will give you extra confidence as you pose for photos (even close-ups).

You have probably seen the porcelain tabs in graduated shades that dentists use to determine appropriate, yet natural looking, shades for tooth restorations. Forum Park teeth bleaching can whiten teeth beyond their natural shade. Many cosmetic dentistry practices don’t use a conventional shade chart for whitening patients anymore.

There are now shade guides with levels significantly whiter than the guides used in the past. Tooth whitening is not a gimmick; it is safe and incredibly effective. Yuma tooth bleaching patients can maintain a white shade that equals the brightness of the ‘tooth’ models you see in dental marketing.

Tooth whitening following twice-yearly cleanings is usually the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure. Tooth bleaching in Yuma is comparable to the cost of a professional hair weaving and cut, but when you consider the transformation – there is no comparison! Flash your gorgeous, sparkling smile, and no one will even notice your hair!
