Cosmetic Dentistry for a New Reflection


If you are tired of looking in the mirror, call and schedule an appointment with your East Greenbush dentist.

A new look on life is just
what you need when it comes to your confidence and self-esteem. Even if you
only want to lighten your teeth for a big event, you’ll still see a boost in
confidence when you go for cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentistry the Boost
You Need

Cosmetic dentistry can mean
anything from professional teeth whitening to veneers, dental implants, clear
removable braces and orthodontics. These simple procedures can dramatically
change your appearance.

It’s amazing what a few
procedures can do for your entire life. In fact, a new smile can be good for
your health.

If you follow this dental blog, you will recall the connection between overall and oral health. That connection, when not recognized, could cause serious health complications including stroke and heart attack.

Health, Teeth and Gums

Keeping your teeth and gums
healthy is imperative for both oral and overall health. For example, if you
avoid regular dental checkups plaque will get out of hand, especially if you
aren’t diligent with brushing and flossing.

Sometimes people get complacent
when it comes to dental hygiene. Don’t become one of those people.

Dr. Alexander can’t stress
the importance of brushing twice and flossing once a day. Include a good diet
with lots of fruits and vegetables, and you’ll get a head start when it comes
to preventive dentistry.

A Healthy Mouth for Cosmetic

Unless you are having
cavities filled with tooth colored fillings, most cosmetic dentistry procedures
require healthy teeth and of course healthy gums.

Your East Greenbush dentist
will examine both along with your restorations to determine your dental plan. In
some cases that may include periodontal treatment.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is a major problem and is responsible for tooth loss in adults and even the younger generation. In this day and age it isn’t unusual to find a mid-twenty something that has lost at least one tooth.

Tooth loss is avoided even
in the early stages of gum disease as long as you seek treatment. However, once
your gingivitis progresses to periodontal disease it’s incurable. While your
East Greenbush dentist can control the disease, he is unable to cure it.
