Losing the freedom to smile the way you want to because of a missing or chipped tooth is not the best way to go through life. Fortunately, cosmetic dentists can rescue you from a lifetime of being self-conscious with your smile.

There are several ways to restore damaged or missing teeth. Some look natural and you can not tell the difference between the real tooth and fake tooth. New technology has made it so that there are several ways to fix, repair, mend and restore teeth, with each one tailor-fitted to the damage.

Crowns and Tooth Cracks

Dental crowns are the latest ways of fixing teeth cracks. Cracked teeth are usually caused by tooth decay, teeth grinding, and sometimes by accidents. The crowns are fitted right on top of each damaged tooth to cover the crack and hold the tooth together. Crowns can be used on almost any tooth. They are custom-designed and are seldom noticed.

Inlays and Tooth Decay

Inlays are very stable restorative treatments on delicate and decaying teeth....

One of the most important things that distinguishes the best Jackson dentist from the others is the list of services he or she offers. Most people do not realize that dentists can offer several services in addition to regular services.

Regular Dental Services:

The dentist should offer regular services to help maintain oral health. He or she should offer many services to help prevent gum disease in order to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Small cavities require only fillings whereas teeth that have large areas of decay require more complicated treatments such as crowns. A good dentist will always offer you treatments that conserve as much of your original teeth as possible because teeth do not regenerate in adults. We offer all of the services at Beard Dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentistry:

We also offer cosmetic procedures...

Gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease, is an infection in the tissue and bones that surround and hold up the teeth. Bacteria found in plaque mainly cause gum disease.

There are several types of gum disease, the mildest is gingivitis. A person with gingivitis has red or inflamed gums, which bleed easily. Good oral hygiene is the first defense against gingivitis or any other gum disease.

When gingivitis is not treated, it can lead to a more severe infection called periodontitis. Periodontitis damages the teeth’s supporting bones and tissues, creating gaps between teeth and gums and eventually causing tooth loss.

While bacteria in plaque is the primary cause of gum disease, other contributing factors include smoking and stress, both of which decreases the body’s ability to fight off infection. People with diabetes and other diseases that weaken the body’s immune system are also at a high risk of developing gum disease. Lack of proper nutrition can worsen this condition. Hormonal...

Dental implants are an artificial tooth root that a dentist places into the jaw to hold the replacement tooth or bridge. This is an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dental implants are actually more “tooth saving” than traditional bridge work, since implants do not relay on neighboring teeth for support.

This advanced cosmetic dentistry procedure provides a natural-look and natural-feel teeth. You may forget that you ever lost a tooth. Your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself both professionally and personally. You might hide your teeth because of spacing, missing tooth or your dentures don’t fit properly. Dental implants can last years by properly caring and maintaining them.

Gum disease, also known as gingivitis, is a serious condition that will normally result in tooth loss. Gingivitis and periodontal disease are the most common forms of gum disease in adults. One way to prevent both types of gum disease is to brush your teeth daily and remove as much plaque as possible. If you allow the plaque to build up, it may result in gum disease.

Gingivitis is known as inflammation in the tissues of the gums. If plaque and tartar build up along the gum line, the gums will eventually get swollen and irritated. Over time, the gums will get very tender and start to appear puffy. When you brush your teeth, you will may notice that your gums become very sore and they start to bleed with little to no pressure. If you notice blood when brushing, chances are you have gingivitis.

During this stage of gingivitis, there is no loss of bone structure. You can help to prevent gingivitis by flossing and brushing daily. If you have gingivitis and you don’t seek treatment, it could lead to periodontal...

Out of all the dental procedures in cosmetic dentistry being performed, teeth whitening ranks the highest. Whatever the reason, patients have been known to regain their confidence and self-esteem right after the whitening process.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is simply a process that eliminates discoloration and stains on the teeth. The procedure also brightens the natural pigmentation of the teeth. The nature of the stains as well as the severity of the discoloration determines the degree of improvement after the treatment.

When your teeth become brown or yellow due to coffee, tea or smoking, stains will generally lighten four to five shades. Gray teeth caused by natural pigmentation or use of antibiotics will lighten two to three shades. Whatever the outcome, your teeth are noticeably brighter after teeth whitening....

Dental implants treatment is the most popular way of restoring missing teeth. Dental implants are tiny insertions which are made from bio compatible items. These materials are surgically inserted in the jawbone of the patient’s mouth to support the damaged teeth. These bio compatible materials are made up of various shapes and sizes, which are selected and used by the dentist as per the requirement of the patient. Unlike dentures, implants do not loosen or slip off or cause discomfort while eating.

Depending on the condition of your teeth, the dentist may advise on implanting the teeth. Healing times vary per person. For example, if you are a fit person, the total process might take less than 6 weeks time, but if you have other conditions like high blood sugar or other conditions, it can take more time than specified.

Implanting teeth in the jawbone is a simple procedure and is easily performed with local anesthesia. In special cases, the doctor may opt for general anesthesia.

Family dentistry practices specialize in the prevention of tooth problems, restoring any troublesome areas, and maintaining dental health overall. They are trained to treat every member of your family, at any age. These dentists have been trained in a wide range of techniques that can provide care for many different issues. If you or one of your family members have a dental problem, are experiencing pain, or desire a cosmetic dental service, contact a family practice to address your oral health needs.
