It’s a new year, so it is a new you, right? If you are searching for another way to improve yourself this year, turn to your smile. By improving the appearance and health of your smile, you can ultimately help enhance your overall health as well. Here are five ways to keep smiling this year.
Having whiter teeth can give you the confidence you need to smile. With laser whitening, we can help you find the smile improvement you have been looking for. We use Biolase laser teeth whitening to help improve the color of your teeth by about 6-12 shades. This will vary by patient, but in less than 20 minutes of gel-to-tooth contact time, we can help you whiten your teeth in-office.
As you age, you might notice some unwelcome dark spaces appearing between your teeth. This can add an older appearance to your smile. These “dark triangles” can also collect food debris and plaque–we don’t want that. Dark spaces can also be the result of bone loss, recession of the gum line or movement of the teeth.
Fortunately, Bioclear can help. To treat those dark spaces in your teeth, Dr. Sara at Pinnacle Peak Family Dentistry is the only certified dentist in Scottsdale, Arizona who has completed all the training to use Bioclear to improve your smile.
It is never too late to straighten your teeth. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without anyone even noticing you are undergoing treatment. That is because Invisalign is a clear, virtually invisible and comfortable alternative to braces. It makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets or wires!
And because Invisalign is invisible and removable, you are able to brush and floss normally during your treatment. There is also no need to change your busy lifestyle because your Invisalign can be taken out as needed for presentations or going out to eat.
It is important that you brush and floss your teeth twice a day. However, you should also visit your dentist twice a year for regular dental cleanings. This is because we have special tools designed to get into those hard-to-reach spots in your mouth.
We also check the health of your gums to make sure gum disease isn’t lurking around the corner. To put it simply: We can give you a more thorough cleaning that your teeth truly need. It will keep you smiling for longer.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth to create a natural-looking tooth to take its place. This is done without causing harm to the surrounding teeth. It also helps to restore proper function to your mouth. As a result, your quality of life is also improved and you can prevent further jaw joint issues from an “off bite.”
Full arch replacement is also available for patients who are missing all of their teeth on either of their arches. This treatment is followed by a hybrid denture, or an All-on-4 denture. This functions as a denture, but it is fixed to the denture like a bridge.
