Your Famous Smile

Veneers in Seattle How do celebrities achieve brilliant white smiles that are always ready for the red carpet or a close-up? Do they avoid coffee? Not likely. Every star-watching magazine is full of pictures of famous men and women holding Starbucks cups. Do they avoid tobacco? Some abstain, but unfortunately many actors and fashion models are smokers.

Many Famous Smiles Were Not Always Flawless

Not everyone with flawless teeth was born with them. (Sure, no one is born with teeth, but you know what I mean.) Many celebrities have drop-dead gorgeous smiles because they have procured cosmetic dentistry.

No Need To Go To Hollywood

Guess what? You can also have a smile like a supermodel or television news anchor. dentist McKay has been offering cosmetic dentistry, including smile transformations, for dental patients since 1997.

Lighten Up!

Tooth whitening is usually the most affordable cosmetic dental procedure. Tooth bleaching will quickly lighten your teeth and make you feel like smiling all the time.

Fix Those Chips

Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile because they repair many problems including misshapen, chipped, and discolored teeth. Teeth with worn-away enamel can often be repaired with veneers. Preparing a tooth for a porcelain veneer is minimally invasive, as the latest veneers do not require the removal of healthy enamel. Another plus: veneers are usually less expensive than complete crowns.

Five Fast Ways to Improve Your Smile

cosmetic dental and implants Seattle

Do you have a special event coming up? Perhaps a wedding, graduation, milestone birthday, anniversary, or reunion? These celebrations usually involve a lot of photographs and, of course, you want to look beautiful. You may not have time to lose 20 pounds, but you can dramatically transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Here are five cosmetic dental procedures that can usually be completed in one office visit.

1. Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been a celebrated treatment for decades but we never fail to be amazed by the remarkable results they furnish. A veneer is a super-thin layer of porcelain bonded permanently to the tooth. A veneer can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discoloration disappear, or fix a misshapen tooth.

2. Gum Contouring
Perhaps your teeth are beautiful and healthy but you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation. Gum contouring can reshape the gumline and beautify your smile. Book a consultation with dentist McKay today for a thorough examination and savvy guidance regarding your gumline.

3. Enamel Shaping
Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the aspects of a smile even if all the other teeth have a positive appearance. (Your mouth is no place for a sore thumb, right?) Let dentist McKay reshape the tooth so it blends in seamlessly.

4. Bonding
Dental bonding just gets better and better as additional cutting-edge materials are developed. Bonding is used in a multitude of applications to correct teeth with cosmetic and structural issues. The newest prep processes are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure.

5. Teeth Whitening
Make your smile pop with professional in-office teeth whitening. There is nothing like an outstanding white smile to give you complete confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry is an investment that will bless you with increased self-assurance every day. We look forward to getting your smile ready for all those hugs, laughs, and, of course, pictures.

Gum Disease And Tooth Loss

treatment for bleeding gums Bellevue

Do you know that the most prevalent cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? The good news is that gum disease is easy to treat if it is detected in the early stages.

Regular check-ups with your dentist are vital, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.

1. Gums that bleed easily

2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed

3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly

4. Loose gums

5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing these symptoms, talk to your dentist today. Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums.

My name is Dr. Brian McKay and my practice, Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry, serves the Seattle area. We take pride in caring for our patients and we want them to have healthy, beautiful smiles that they can be proud of. Our practice specializes in:

cosmetic dentistry
sedation dentistry
dental implants

Crown Or Veneer?

cosmetic dentistry Seattle

I am Brian McKay of Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle.  We offer multiple cosmetic dental procedures for creating dazzling smiles. Two of the most popular procedures are dental crowns and porcelain veneers. Many patients don’t understand the difference between the two. Generally, a crown strengthens a compromised tooth while a veneer is used mainly for cosmetic improvements.

A dental crown covers the entire visible part of the tooth. A veneer is an ultra-thin layer for the front of a tooth. Veneers are made with several layers of extremely strong ceramic laminate. Crowns can be made of all porcelain (ceramic), porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Both crowns and veneers are affixed to the tooth with special adhesive. Crowns and veneers are durable and can last many years if properly cared for, though they are not stronger than natural enamel.

Both of these procedures improve the tooth aesthetically, but dental crowns are usually a better solution for a tooth that has been compromised by decay, damage, or a root canal. Veneers can repair the shape of a tooth, fix a minor crack, cover stains, or straighten the appearance of teeth that are slightly misaligned.

The success of a crown or veneer procedure depends on proficient professionals at the lab and in the dentist’s office. Your cosmetic dentist must prep the tooth, create a precision mold, and submit an accurate order to the lab.

The role of the dental lab technician is equally important.  Highly skilled lab technicians fabricate custom dental crowns and veneers to the specifications of the cosmetic dentist. They must have the skill to meet the precise standards needed for successful restorations.

Consider the myriad characteristics of a restoration: the precise shape, the exact size, the precise color, and the proper placement in the mouth. This is a case of all or nothing – each variable must be right on the mark or it must be redone.

The team at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry and the fantastic staff at our dental lab work together to provide the highest quality dental restorations for our valued patients.

If you would like more helpful information about crowns, veneers, and other cosmetic dental procedures, I invite you to contact us to schedule a cosmetic dental consultation. I can help you achieve a smile that is both healthy and beautiful. Call 206-973-2407 today!

Seattle Mouths And Stomatitis

Seattle Mouths And Stomatitis

Ouch! The mouth certainly seems to attract injuries, sores, or inflammation more often than we would hope. Even the smallest irritation in the mouth can cause serious discomfort.

These non-specific irritations in the mouth have a name. They are called stomatitis.

A good general definition for stomatitis is the inflammation of the membranes in the mouth. These usually affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, and even get to sleep at night. .

Some common causes of stomatitis can be canker sores, cold sores, gum disease, biting the inside of your mouth or your tongue, burning your mouth, and irritation caused by braces or broken teeth. Many sores in the mouth will generally clear up on their own in less than two weeks.

Your dentist can determine if it is caused by a viral or bacterial infection, and they can also advise you on treating the symptoms of stomatitis with pain relievers and at-home remedies such as salt water rinses.

Hi. I’m Dr. Brian McKay of Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle. I help my patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles. If you have any questions about smile makeovers, give us a call at 206-973-2407.

Common cosmetic dentistry procedures used in smile makeovers include teeth whitening, gum contouring, veneers, bonding, and dental implants. We offer:

Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Has A Solution For Dental Anxiety

Oral Conscious Sedation Some dental patients experience severe anxiety when undergoing dental treatment. With oral conscious sedation, it is possible to relax during dental procedures instead of being tense and fearful. Oral sedation dentistry, relaxation dentistry, conscious sedation and anxiety-free dentistry are all terms used to describe this type of treatment. In addition to alleviating anxiety, oral conscious sedation can help dental patients with a variety of conditions.

You may want to consider oral conscious sedation if you have any of the following issues:

  • Strong gag reflex
  • Fear of needles
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Fear and anxiety associated with dental treatment
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A history of negative dental experiences
  • Trouble controlling body movement due to Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy or related condition
  • Need extensive dental treatment requiring lengthy dental visits

If you have avoided dental treatment due to any of these factors, give us a call at 206-973-2407. We can give you essential information about sedation options and help you determine which one is right for you. At Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry we do all we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We look forward to discussing your oral health and dental goals.

“Serving Seattle dental patients since 1997.”
