Tooth decay is the degenerative process that occurs when your tooth breaks down and is destroyed. Watch this video to understand exactly how that happens.
When bacteria, food products, and your teeth all come together, a recipe for tooth decay is in place. If the bacteria is not removed from your teeth, it forms plaque; this is a sticky film that covers your tooth. When you eat food that contains carbohydrates, the bacteria cannot adequately break them down and acid is formed. This acid breaks your tooth down by attacking enamel and causing decay. You can prevent this from happening by brushing your teeth twice each day with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing every day.

Straightening your smile can give you more confidence and even make it easier to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. If you want to avoid having a mouth full of metal, straighten your smile in a less obvious way by choosing Invisalign.
The Invisalign system users clear acrylic aligners to straighten the teeth in a nearly invisible way. Aligners can be removed, allowing wearers to eat whatever they want and clean their teeth and gums with no problems. Each patient has their own experience, but patients typically wear each set of aligners for two weeks. Patients meet with their dentists every few weeks and receive new sets of aligners. After wearing a set for two weeks, patients can move on to the next set to continue the straightening process.

Your smile says a lot about you. If you are not happy with your smile, it can show on your face. Getting a smile makeover can help you get the beautiful smile that will boost your confidence and help you make better impressions on people you meet. Discover what to expect from a smile makeover:
The first step of a smile makeover is the initial consultation. You will meet with a dentist to discuss what you like and dislike about your current smile and what goals you have for your future smile. Your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if any restorative dentistry is needed before moving on to cosmetic concerns. If so, you may need restorative treatments before the smile makeover can begin.
Once restorative concerns are addressed, you and your dentist will work together to create the perfect smile makeover treatment plan. Your dentist will take your goals into consideration and determine which cosmetic treatments can best help you achieve them. This will allow your dentist to figure out the best plan for performing however many procedures you decide to have.
Dentists offer a variety of cosmetic treatments to patients interested in smile makeovers. This provides the greatest number of solutions for common smile problems. Tooth-colored fillings are perfect for cavities. Porcelain veneers treat numerous cosmetic issues, including discoloration, misalignment, irregularly shaped teeth, and broken teeth. Dental implants and crowns can replace missing teeth to create a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
Your New Smile
Make the most of your smile makeover by taking proper care of your teeth and gums after your procedures. Your dentist will let you know if there are any special concerns to keep in mind for your future. You can care for your new smile by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and avoiding foods, drinks, and habits that can harm your smile.
