Overcome Dental Phobia And Achieve A Beautiful Smile

dental implants conscious sedation SeattleFor millions of people, the mere thought of going to the dentist sends their anxiety level through the roof. This emotion can range from anxiety to outright phobia, and can be so intense that some people avoid the dentist entirely. At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we can help with sedation dentistry.

To be blunt, skipping the dentist due to fear is a bad idea. If you don’t see the dentist for regular checkups, you are putting your dental health at risk. Healthy teeth and gums are important at every stage of life, and study after study has shown the link between your dental health and your overall health.

There are a lot of reasons people stress out just thinking about the dentist. For some, it may stem from a prior bad experience. Fear of pain may be involved, as well as a fear of anesthesics and possible side effects.

Whatever the reason, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get the treatment they deserve.

  • We offer conscious sedation. You take a prescribed sedative an hour or so before the appointment. It puts you in a deeply relaxed state, though you remain conscious. When the appointment is over, someone will have to drive you home.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle we want our patients to have a positive experience. If you cope with anxiety or phobia, ask about sedation dentistry. People from Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton, 98117, and 98125  come to our practice for dental implants and all their dental health needs. Call to schedule an appointment today!

You Have Nothing To Lose Except Loose Dentures

implant dentures SeattleLoose-fitting dentures are a thing of the past thanks to implant-supported dentures, like those available at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle.

Hundreds of thousands of people have benefitted from implant-supported dentures since they were first introduced more than twenty years ago. It’s advanced science that is beautiful in its simplicity. Dental implants, usually four, support a full dental arch. Because the implants fuse with your jawbone, they are literally a part of your body and a solid support for the replacement teeth.

The implants themselves are titanium posts that are  inserted into your jawbone. Titanium is highly compatible with human bone, which is why it is also the material of choice for joint replacement.

Implant-supported dentures are recommended for people who have lost all of their teeth or are expected to in the near future. Because they are permanent and affixed to implants, they do not shift around in the mouth the way conventional dentures do. They can be fitted to the upper and lower jaw.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, inplant dentures have changed the lives of people in Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton, 98117, and 98125 . We also offer complete general dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!

The Final Step For A Tooth Implant: A Beautiful Crown

how a dental crown is made Seattle

When you receive a dental implant from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, a crown is the final component.

Let’s discuss the complex process required to construct a dental crown.

Dental crowns can be produced with metal, ceramic (porcelain), resins, or varying combinations of these.

Modern porcelain crowns are an engineering marvel. They make reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry possible.

This picture shows three crowns attached to two implant posts. While the most advanced dental lab techs and adept ceramists can’t make a tooth as strong as Mother Nature can, they are getting pretty darn close.

As far as beauty goes, today’s high-quality crowns are just as natural looking as actual teeth.

A dental implant from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle looks and functions just like the real thing! We’ve placed them in patients from Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton, 98117, and 98125. They are just one of our restorative dentistry services. Call for an appointment today!

What’s The Latest With Veneers?

Seattle Prepless Veneers

One of the developments in cosmetic dentistry are prepless veneers, which are available here at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle.

Though thousands of people who have received traditional veneers are happy with the results, some have delayed this procedure because they don’t want to give up healthy tooth structure.

Veneers Have Advanced

Prepless veneers are a less invasive procedure for transforming smiles. They are remarkably thin shells which adhere to the front of teeth and, unlike ordinary veneers, require no removal of tooth enamel. The best way to describe prepless veneers is that they are minimally invasive.

Most prepless veneers are about the thickness of two pieces of paper. Because the color is built into the veneers (instead of being applied after fabrication), they look like your natural teeth—only better!

Not everyone is a viable candidate for prepless veneers. To find out more, schedule an appointment with Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle. We’ve placed these and standard porcelain veneers on people throughout Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton, 98117, and 98125 . Schedule an appointment today!

Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants And Dental Bridges

Seattle Dental Implants and Dental Bridges

When an adult tooth is lost, it won’t grow back. Dental bridges are a common solution, as are artificial teeth supported by dental implants. We place both of these at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle.

Traditional dental bridges consist of artificial teeth held in place by crowns (abutments) that are cemented to the natural teeth on each side. Having these natural teeth is necessary for a traditional crown to work. The down side is that these adjacent teeth must have some of their enamel removed to make enough room for abutments.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in your jaw, where they fuse with the bone. They can support artificial teeth that look and function like the real thing. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a full dental arch.

Implant Benefits

More and more, dental implants are the replacement option of choice. They do more than just support artificial teeth. When a natural tooth is lost the bone around it begins to deterioriate, which results in a sunken appearance in the face. Since they are embedded into the bone, implants function like tooth roots to help to prevent bone loss.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle we offer complete restorative dentistry. Patients from xxx also come to our practice for general dentistry services. Please give us a call to schedule an appointment today!

Missing Teeth? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile

Seattle cosmetic dentistry

If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, dental implants from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle may be just what you’ve been hoping for.

Why is that? Dental implants support replacement teeth that look and function like the real thing. Not only that, they help to preserve your jaw bone, which can deteriorate after you lose teeth.

A dental implant, stricly speaking, is not a replacement tooth. It’s a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw. Because it fuses with the bone, it becomes a part of your body. An implant is strong enough to support an artificial tooth, just like a natural tooth root. Several implants can support a bridge, and even a full dental arch.

Other artificial tooth options, including conventional dentures, need to be replaced every few years. This is because the bone beneath it gradually deterioriates.

Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime. They prevent bone loss, because the implant is part of the jawbone. Furthermore, the artificial tooth or teeth attached to the implant will never decay.

Replacement teeth supported by dental implants from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle are indistinguishable from other teeth, and most people won’t realize they’re there. You may forget, too! We’ve placed them in patients from Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond, who also come to our practice for general dentistry, and much more. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

The Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Guide To Veneers

porcelain veneers cost Seattle

It’s easy to see why so many of our patients at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle love porcelain veneers. Veneers can be used to address many flaws, and deliver brilliant results.

If you would like to improve your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The porcelain veneer procedure is more complicated than you may realize.

A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of medical-grade porcelain that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. Each one is custom made. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains, and can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.

It’s important to understand that standard porcelain veneers are not reversible. A thin layer of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. DURAthin prepless veneers, however, do not require any enamel removal.

At Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we offer standard porcelain veneers and DURAthin prepless veneers. People from Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond come to our practice to improve their smiles. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

What Does Your Saliva Reveal?

Saliva is an important part of good oral health. Without an adequate flow, you’d find it very difficult to chew and swallow. If you have a problem with dry mouth, let us know at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle.

Saliva is produced by several glands in and around the mouth, and it is mostly water. No surprise there! Aside from chewing and keeping your mouth moist, saliva fights germs in your mouth and helps prevent bad breath.

Sometimes people have a reduced flow of saliva, a condition known as xerostomia (pronounced zero-STO-me-uh). It’s a common side effect of certain medications, and can lead to discomfort and swelling.

Many commonly-used medications can cause dry mouth, including:

  • Antihistamines
  • Appetite suppressants
  • Certain blood pressure medicine
  • Antidepressants
  • Certain pain medication

Dry mouth can also contribute to tooth decay and gum disease, so if these symptoms sound familiar to you, let us know.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle we keep a close watch on the oral health of our patients. People from Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond come to us for general and cosmetic dentistry. Call us to schedule your next checkup today!
