Research has shown that almost everybody has a 95% chance of experiencing some tooth decay. When tooth decay does occur, it is highly important to remove the decay, clean the tooth and repair the tooth with some type of restoration. In addition, lost or missing teeth need to be replaced to protect your overall oral health.
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction.
The most common answer to this question is “a big, beautiful smile!” Certainly, a beautiful smile provides a compelling reason for orthodontic care. But the best reason for orthodontic care is what that smile shows – healthy teeth. Orthodontic care may often be viewed as primarily cosmetic, but it’s really an important part of long-term health care.
Implant dentistry offers a reliable and secure tooth replacement alternative to removable dentures and traditional bridges. It can be used to replace one missing tooth or fill out an entire set of teeth. Unlike removable dentures and traditional bridges, Implants are functionally identical to healthy, natural teeth; they are strong, secure and long-lasting.
Prevention is always better than treatment. By actively preventing disease and decay through regular home care, professional dental cleanings and regular exams, you will maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
