How Dental Veneers Work
Dental veneers are very thin shells that are custom-made to fit over your teeth. They’re created to match the color of your adjacent teeth or can be made in a whiter shade if you long for a whiter smile. Veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth and can immediately improve the way your smile looks. Dental veneers are frequently recommended as a cosmetic dentistry option to cover up minor imperfections, including:
Misaligned or irregularly spaced teeth
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure because they don’t require you to spend a lot of time getting treatment. Rather than undergoing multiple lengthy treatments to improve the appearance of your smile, dental veneers can be used to transform the way you look in minimal time.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
In addition to a short treatment time, porcelain veneers also offer the following benefits:
Conservative treatment approach
Affordability when compared to other treatment options for common dental imperfections
Dental Veneers are known to last up to 15 years before needing replacement. They do not require any special care, but you should follow a good oral hygiene routine to keep them in good condition and to maintain your overall oral health.

It’s estimated that over half of American adults have some degree of gum disease. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, while periodontitis and advanced periodontitis are the more severe stages. Gingivitis can often be reversed simply by regular brushing and flossing and making sure to visit the dentist twice a year for cleanings.
Gum Disease and advanced periodontitis typically need a targeted approach from your dentist. Typical treatment includes scaling and root planing at the dentist’s office. This non-surgical procedure cleans the tartar, plaque and bacteria from the tooth and near the gum tissue. The soft tissue around the teeth may need to be reshaped or treated to ensure that the teeth are stable.
Laser dentistry in Brevard, NC is one approach to treating gum disease. The infected tissue can be removed. While the root of the tooth is exposed, the calculus and plaque can be scraped off. The dentist will smooth out the root of the tooth that could attract bacteria. Laser therapy promotes healing because the area between the gum and root will regenerate during the healing process.
Why Laser Therapy?
At Water Oak Dental Group in Brevard, NC, our office uses the BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ and the Odyssey 2.5 Diode lasers for treatment options.

0 comments on “Dental Implants Versus Dentures: Which Is the Better Treatment Choice for You?”
When it comes to tooth replacement, you have several good treatment options available to you. While dentures and bridges are commonly used to replace entire arches or single missing teeth, respectively, dental implants are quickly becoming the overwhelmingly popular tooth replacement choice. Implant dentistry is currently one of the fastest-growing segments of dentistry, and many people are choosing dental implants, over traditional dentures or bridges. Here are a few of the procedural advancements dental implants have experienced in recent years that make them a highly attractive tooth replacement choice.
Getting a dental crown is never easy, even when patients have been through the process before. That is because crowns are necessary after serious procedures like a root canal or repairs to a cracked tooth meaning the patient has already been through a great deal of treatment. To add to that complication, most crown construction processes and procedures involve a fairly lengthy manufacturing period before the temporary crown can be upgraded, and that means patients often have to be available for multiple visits. The results are great, but the timing is never as convenient as it can be for other, simpler procedures.
