Porcelain Veneers Display - Brevard, NC & Hendersonville, NCSummer is here and it may be a good time to consider porcelain veneers in Brevard, NC! So it’s that time to prepare for vacation and family reunion photos. Unfortunately, if you’re not satisfied with the way your smile looks, you may be tempted to hide from the camera. If you think improving your smile requires more time and money than you want to spend, you’d be surprised how quickly you can transform your look. Porcelain veneers are the perfect way to quickly cover up imperfections in your teeth so you can proudly smile for the camera this summer and cosmetic dentists, Dr. David Krishingner, Dr. Jeffrey T. Root, Dr. Niklas Resla, and Dr. John Krishingner at Water Oak Dental are here to help you look your best with porcelain veneers.

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:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Tooth gaps
  • Discolored teeth
  • 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:

  • Natural appearance
  • Stain resistance
  • 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.

Laser Therapy For Treating Gum Disease

May 14th, 2018 Posted by Laser Dentistry 0 comments on “Laser Therapy For Treating Gum Disease”

laser dentistry - Brevard, NCIt’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. We also offer sedation dentistry to patients who are especially anxious, but we find it is rarely needed. These lasers allow us to target the damaged tissue from gum disease while protecting the healthy tissue. The benefits include:

  • Faster healing and recovery times
  • Less damage to surrounding gum tissue
  • Pediatric patients respond better because there is no shot
  • Gums can be reshaped without grafting
  • Treat gum disease by targeting the damaged tissue
  • Less discomfort, bleeding and swelling
