A beautiful smile starts with healthy teeth and gums. If you are suffering from gingivitis, periodontal disease or tooth decay, your grin is suffering.
According to Dr. Jack Ringer, past president and an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, healthy teeth and gums are your best defense against more serious health issues such as heart disease.
If you follow Dr. Ringers Blog, you will remember that there is a connection between gum disease and heart problems. With that being said, brushing twice and flossing once a day, regular dental checkups, cleanings and a healthy diet are your best defense against gum disease and tooth decay.
You may have the healthiest teeth and gums in the world, but unfortunately, most people are not born with a perfect smile. If you look at early pictures of your favorite celebrities, you will notice that most have had some sort of cosmetic dentistry procedure. If you fall into that category, your Orange County cosmetic dentist has great news for you.
Cosmetic dentistry has improved over the years with affordable new cosmetic dental procedures that are used to brighten yellowed teeth, repair chips, and cracks and to straighten crooked teeth. All of these cosmetic dental procedures are used to give you the smile you deserve.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Ringer from Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills digital images will be taken of your teeth and gums to determine if they are healthy for cosmetic dentistry. If your OC dentist does not find decay or disease, a plan will be discussed for your new smile.
Thanks to modern day technology, you get to see what your smile will look like before you have had the procedure. This saves time and money as you won’t have to deal with expensive re-dos.
Once the two of you have decided on your new smile and cosmetic dentistry procedures, the magic begins.
For some, professional tooth whitening is all that is needed for a beautiful smile, while others may require more intensive procedures such as dental implants. Dr. Ringer may also suggest cosmetic dental bonding, same day crowns, cosmetic dental crowns, clear braces or inlays and onlays. Your Anaheim Hills cosmetic dentist can also provide you with tooth colored fillings, dental bridges and other types of cosmetic dental procedures.
As mentioned above, a healthy smile starts with healthy teeth and gums. However, if you have missing teeth or crooked teeth, they could be causing problems. Crooked teeth make it difficult to brush while missing teeth cause other teeth to move and reposition. When this happens, you are more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay.
Dr. Ringer will come up with a plan that starts with healthy teeth and gums. One tooth at a time for a healthy mouth is the goal.
