Traditional dentistry covers proper oral hygiene, care, prevention, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases, while cosmetic dentistry focuses more on the enhancement of your appearance. Cosmetic dentistry offers solutions for issues such as teeth discoloration, crooked or chipped teeth, and even missing teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry is fast becoming popular these days, and more and more people resort to it to enhance their overall appearance and smile. With dental technology in a constant state of improvement, a wide array of tools is now available for dentists to help patients achieve their desired outcomes.
Among the most popular cosmetic dental services requested at Felt Family Dentistry is porcelain veneers. Veneers are wafer thin tooth-colored porcelain or resin that are bonded to the surface of your teeth. When properly maintained, porcelain veneers can last for decades.
Over time, our teeth get discolored from the food we eat, and the beverages that we drink. Or, sometimes you just want that extra glow from your teeth. Leave those stains and discolorations in the past and get a brilliant, sparkling smile with teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can be done in a single visit and it will instantly enhance your smile and overall appearance.
Two areas of periodontal services that Felt Family Dentistry specializes in include the diagnosis of gum disease and gum infection therapy.
It is important that one keeps his or her gums as healthy as possible with regular dental cleaning and proper dental hygiene. Your gums are the foundation of your teeth. They hold all of them in place, support the roots, and even safeguard the underlying bone.
Without proper gum care, you may develop gingivitis, which is characterized by mild symptoms of reddish, swollen gums, or gums that bleed whenever you floss. Gingivitis is often reversible with the right non-invasive procedures and treatments. If untreated, gingivitis can evolve into periodontitis. Periodontitis is associated with other health complications such as stroke, heart attack, diabetes, etc. As you can see, regular gum-care and checkup is important.
