More Than A Cleaning
Although an individual regularly brushes and flosses their teeth, scaling, cleaning, polishing, digital X-rays and a thorough examination must be performed. Tartar and plaque can build up on the teeth around the gums and cause inflammation and bleeding. Bleeding or puffy gums can be an early sign that gum disease is developing.
Gum disease can start as early as the teenage years. Early detection and treatment will reduce the chance of an individual losing their teeth. Gum disease may require additional or deeper cleaning under the gum line to remove the bacteria.
Cosmetic dentistry in Providence RI is very affordable and will give a patient the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. A great looking smile can improve an individual’s self-esteem and confidence. This type of dentistry can include teeth whitening, crowns, porcelain veneers, and dental implants.
One of several missing teeth can be permanently replaced by a dental implant. A dentist will perform a thorough examination of the gum and bone health to determine if a patient is eligible. The treatment takes approximately two to three visits and involves having a titanium post inserted into the bone and a permanent crown being attached to it when healing has completed.
Teeth that are not the same size as the others can be easily corrected with a porcelain veneer. This thin piece of porcelain is attached to the front of a tooth and will be the same size and same as the other teeth. It can hide flaws like a chip or discoloration.
