Life-Changing Dental Implants from our Schenectady Dentist

Are you aware of what dental implants could do for your smile? Dental implants help patients missing teeth regain their former lives, with restored dental stability and the unyielding support of these tooth root replacements. Our Schenectady dentist will place your implants and then work with you until you have beautiful dental restorations in place and are completely satisfied with your new smile. Today's blog post is an in-depth look at this incredible dental restoration.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are titanium screws that connect with your jaw bone. Since titanium is a biocompatible material, over time it actually fuses with your bone, creating a support system that will not fail you or your restorations. Dental implants are connected to accompanying restorations by means of an abutment. Once the three parts of the fully restored tooth are in place (implant, abutment, and restoration), your treatment with our Schenectady dentist is complete!

What dental restorations can dental implants support?

Dental implants work with every dental restoration. The general support that implants provide can benefit all the dental restorations our Schenectady dentist offers. You may  use dental implants in conjunction with:

  • Crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures
  • Partial dentures

The foundation provided by the dental implants will keep these restorations from feeling like anything other than natural tooth structure. This makes an especially profound difference in the case of dentures. Implant-supported dentures will not click or slip, and you will be able to use them for both speaking and chewing (there is less of a need to remove them).

How will dental implants change my life?

Dental implants provide you with replacement teeth that really feel and look natural. They will improve your speaking, chewing, and the look of your jaw and face. Because dental implants provide new root structures, they can keep bone surrounding a missing tooth from disintegrating and preserve your bone structure. Most importantly, dental implants will give you a boost in confidence by returning your smile to a whole and beautiful state.

Don't understimate the difference a solid, full smile makes to your self-esteem and your life. Contact our office today to begin a dental implant discussion.

 

A Simple but Transformative Teeth Whitening Experience with Schenectady Dentist

Cosmetic dental treatments vary in complexity. While more involved treatments tend to produce the most dramatic results, it’s possible to transform your smile with a single, painless appointment with our Schenectady dentist. Teeth whitening changes your life in more ways than the obvious. Because of the associations people lend to a bright smile, your whitened teeth can affect the way others treat you and the way you see yourself. Moreover, your teeth whitening appointment will be over in one hour and leave you with results lasting a month or more. Read on to learn more about the simplicity and effectiveness of teeth whitening.

Schenectady Dentist on How Teeth Whitening Changes Your Life

  • Physical – Teeth whitening can brighten your teeth by up to 8 shades. This increase in whiteness can make your smile look like an entirely new one – without having any other dental work.
  • Emotional – A white smile conveys health, youth, and excellent personal grooming. This will make you feel great when you look in the mirror. You will smile more easily and often, and feel better about your appearance. You may even find yourself happier overall. Our Schenectady dentist believes that teeth whitening boosts your mental state just as it does your teeth.
  • Professional – With the new demeanor accompanying your whiter teeth, you will find that you are more comfortable having attention focused on you. This makes you more sociable and can lead to greater success at work.

Your Teeth Whitening Treatment with our Schenectady Dentist

Depending on your whitening needs, our Schenectady dentist may recommend in-office or at-home whitening. In-office whitening is the best choice for those hoping to whiten teeth as quickly and intensely as possible. You will see major results at the end of your first whitening appointment. Should you be unable to make it in to the office and fine with more gradual results, we will provide you with whitening trays and hydrogen peroxide gel so that you can whiten in the comfort of your home.

Schenectady cosmetic dentist porcelain veneersSchenectady Cosmetic Dentist Uses Porcelain Veneers To Create Ideal Smiles

If you're not completely satisfied with your smile, you don't approach the world in the most confident way. You may struggle to feel comfortable showing off your teeth, which leads to hidden smiles and missed opportunities for friendliness. Your attitude towards your smile may even be making you come off as a less expressive, shy person. Our Schenectady dentist wants every patient to possess a smile he or she adores. Your smile should look great and make you feel great.

What are my options for transforming my smile? Won't I have to undergo some complicated cosmetic dentistry?

Altering your smile doesn't need to be complicated. With porcelain veneers, we're able to create new tooth surfaces in just two appointments.

Veneers are thin shells that bond to the front of  your teeth. Porcelain allows the veneers to be so thin that very little tooth reduction is needed to create room for the restorations. This reduces your need to wear temporaries between your first and second veneer appointments, and also reduces the need for anesthesia. The veneers may be made in any shape or shade. Should you decide to receive veneers on multiple front teeth, you may choose to go a few shades lighter than your natural teeth to permanently whiten your front teeth.

Porcelain veneers can change your teeth in the following ways:

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Lengthen short front teeth
  • Whiten discolored teeth resistant to hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening
  • Reduce tooth sensitivity
  • Straighten crooked teeth

Porcelain veneers may be applied to any number of your front teeth. These beautiful alterations will last upwards of ten years. Learn more about how porcelain veneers could perfect your smile by contacting our Schenectady dentist. Your days of feeling anything but pride for your smile will soon be over.
