Let's face it: our general response to the dentist's “open wide!” is a silent "no, that's all right, I think I'm okay right now."
Before someone starts poking and prodding around in your mouth with sharp, pointy objects, there are probably a few questions and concerns you need answered first.
To avoid having to search around the computer for hours for answers to all of your questions, Preferred Dental Care has gathered up some of basic information for you, starting with a bright smile!
While silver fillings used to be your only option for dealing with a cavity, there are now some alternatives. A big shiny smile is really only appropriate for those over-the-top rap stars and not so much for your style. When it comes time to replace those old silver fillings, try choosing a crown or veneers, which give a more natural appearance.
A white smile is always in, but with all the products on the market it is difficult to know what works best. If you truly want a bright smile your dentist usually has custom made trays and bleaching gel for home application.
The last thing anyone really wants is to greet someone with a big “holey” smile. Sometimes accidents happen, but there are corrections available to fix a missing tooth. Dental implants are great for protecting against cavities and give for a more attractive smile. Your dental health is a major contributor in this process, which will be determined by your dentist.
