You, Only Better

cost of dental crowns Seattle

Having a flawless smile is a personal benefit that you can’t put a pricetag on. Is your smile less than flawless? You’re not alone! But with cosmetic dentistry from Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle, those flaws can be corrected.

Before we continue, though, we must point out a misconception. A lot of people think that cosmetic dentistry is all about appearance. Yes, it will make your smile look a lot better. But your teeth will be healthier, too!

If you’re one of those people who tries not to smile because of flawed teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help. An improved smile goes a long way to boosting your self-esteem and self-confidence.

Available procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers. Thin shells of medical-grade ceramic are attached to the fronts of your teeth. They can cover up chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. They are also good for covering damaged tooth enamel.
  • Teeth whitening. Years of consuming tea and coffee and other tooth-staining food and drink really take a toll on your smile. You’ll find a lot of over-the-counter whitening products at the store, but none can match the power of professional-strength whitening.
  • Dental implants. One of the true marvels of modern dentistry, dental implants are titanium posts inserted into your jaw. One can support an artificial tooth, and several can support a full dental arch. Because the implant fuses with the bone, your biting and chewing power is restored.

Correcting problem teeth can reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues. Plus you’ll have a smile that you’ll love! Cosmetic dentistry from Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We also offer restorative dentistry services.

Hate Your Dentures?

Seattle Dentistry Implant

For anyone who has lost all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality.

Implant-supported dentures are already worn successfully by hundreds of thousands of people. If you hate your conventional dentures, they be just what your need.

As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.

In most cases, implant-supported dentures are made for the patient’s lower jaw. That’s because lower dentures tend to be the most problematic; the uppers are more stable and don’t need the extra support that implants provide.

That said, implant-supported dentures can be made for the upper and lower.

Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:

  • More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
  • Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
  • Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
  • Prevents bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.

Implant-supported dentures can transform your life, and they are among the procedures available at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle. We also offer complete general dentistry services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

A Noteworthy Dental Experience

cost of dental crowns Seattle

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we make every checkup a noteworthy experience with our attention to detail, and committment to each patient’s dental health.

Good dental health means having healthy teeth and gums. Maintaining it is something that you have to work at every day. It can be a real balancing act: using the right oral care products, your personal oral care habits, and regular checkups.

Your dental health strategy should include:

  • Daily brushing and flossing. You should brush and floss twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
  • Proper brushing. It’s important not only to brush, but to brush properly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a gentle, circular motion along the gum line. Take your time; a minimum of two minutes is recommended. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!
  • Using fluoridated toothpaste. There is a myriad of choices when it comes to toothpaste. Whether you prefer mint flavored or bubble gum, fluoride is the most important consideration. It is your best defense against cavities.
  • Limiting sugary and acidic foods. Acidic fruits, teas, and coffee contributes to enamel erosion. Sugar converts into acid when it’s in your mouth. You don’t have to avoid these foods entirely, but choose carefully and minimize.
  • Seeing us twice a year. You saw this one coming, right? Your daily dental health care habits are essential, but so is the attention and care of a dentist. A professional teeth cleaning alone is worth the trip, but we can also identify issues before they become serious, and treat them.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we want every checkup to be a noteworthy experience, and for all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. Services include general and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!

Need An Implant? Let’s Do A Checkup And Talk About It.

implant dentist Seattle

When is the last time you had a dental check-up? At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we recommend having a check-up every six months. If you are considering a dental implant, we will assess your oral condition and take it from there.

Dental implants are an ideal replacement for one or more missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw, where it fuses with the bone. One implant is a solid base for one artificial tooth, while several can support a dental bridge or full dental arch.

The ideal candidate for a dental implant is someone in good overall health. That includes healthy gums. Adults are better candidates than younger people, because their jawbones are fully grown.

It’s essential to have enough bone mass, because the implant needs it. Even if you don’t, though, bone grafting can grow new bone. Once the implant is in place, it prevents further bone loss.

Unfortunately, not everyone is a viable candidate for a dental implant. People with systemic conditions like diabetes, or who have had radiation treatment to the head or jaws, are not good candidates. Neither are people with uncontrolled gum disease. All of these conditions can affect the success of the implant.

Dental implants from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle can change your life for the better, and it begins with a thorough checkup. We also offer complete general dentistry services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Let’s Take Care Of Those Tooth Stains

Seattle Teeth BleachingTeeth whitening  is the most-requested cosmetic dentistry procedure in the United States. At Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser  Dentistry in Seattle, we’re happy to say we offer our patients several great options.

First, there are two types of stains that we see often: extrinsic and intrinsic.

  • Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and liquids like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. Smoking really does a number on teeth, too.
  • Intrinsic tooth stains arise from the inside out. Tooth injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove totally, but it is possible to lighten them.

We offer you one of several choices: Zoom! or KöR  whitening, which is done in our office, and professional-strength take-home kits you can do at your convenience. Each delivers spectacular results.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser  Dentistry in Seattle, teeth whitening is just one of our cosmetic dentistry procedures. Call our office to find out what we can do for your smile!

Your Smile Says Keep Trying!

gentle dentist Seattle

This message from Advanced Cosmetic implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle is for anyone who is frustrated because they haven’t been able to make lifestyle changes to benefit their dental health. We urge you to keep trying, and assure you that we’re eager to help!

Keep Trying To Floss

Many people are really good about brushing their teeth, but usually skip flossing. This is a bad idea. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from between teeth.

Failure to floss can lead to cavities, and even gum disease. Our recommendation? Brush twice a day, and floss before going to bed at night.

Keep Trying to Overcome Dental Anxiety

Skipping dental checkups due to anxiety, or even phobia, can have long-term, irreversible consequences. But millions of Americans cope with this condition, and their solution is doing just that: skipping the dentist.

For those whose instinct is to avoid the dentist at all costs: give sedation dentistry a try. We offer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. It’s safe and very effective, and has been used in dentistry for more than a hundred years. It may not make you laugh, but it will relax you enough so that you’ll get the dental care you need.

Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco

Smoking is as bad for your teeth and gums as it is for other parts of your body. If you’ve tried to quit but just can’t, you’re far from alone. Keep trying!

According to the Centers for Disease Control, former smokers now outnumber active smokers. Everyone who has kicked the habit was once right where you are. Keep trying!

Remember, the link between your dental health and overall health is well-established. At Advanced Cosmetic implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle, services include general and restorative dentistry. Please call our office to schedule a cleaning and checkup today!

Suffering From Jaw Pain?

urgent care for jaw pain Seattle

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we treat several causes of pain in the oral area. In today’s article, we will discuss jaw pain.

Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint the cause of jaw pain. Here are some of the possible causes:

Infection

A localized infection can trigger or exacerbate jaw pain. An infection puts your tooth and jaw bone at risk, so swift intervention is essential for many reasons. If your jaw starts swelling, call us  right away. This could indicate a dangerous, fast-moving infection.

Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorder (TMD)

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge-type joint that allows you to open and close your mouth. Chronic TMD can be debilitating. Teeth clenching or grinding can cause or exacerbate TMD. It can also be caused by injury or arthritis. Some individuals who experience TMD notice flare-ups when they are under a lot of stress. If stress is the only cause, stress-reducing habits can help you prevent it or reduce the severity. But the first step is diagnosing the cause.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses. Inflammation commonly develops with a cold or allergies. When these tissues are inflamed, it can create pressure in surrounding areas. Thus, inflammation from a cold or allergies can result in jaw pain.

At Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle we treat jaw pain, including TMJ/TMD. We also offer complete general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today!

What Is On Your Dental Wish List?

How would you like to improve your smile? At Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we use cosmetic dentistry and other procedures to improve smiles every day. If you’re not satisfied with your smile, rest assured there is a procedure for you.

Here is a sampling of what we can do to improve your smile:

  • Teeth whitening. Is there anyone who doesn’t want whiter teeth? Professional teeth whitening surpasses any product you can buy at the store, leaving you with gleaming teeth and a fabulous smile.
  • Porcelain veneers. Medical-grade porcelain are custom-fit to your teeth. They cover chips, cracks, gaps, and other imperfections. They aren’t permanent, but when properly cared for will last about ten to fifteen years.
  • Dental implants. These marvels of modern dentistry are titanium posts inserted into your jaw, where they fuse with the bone. An artificial tooth is mounted onto the post. Implants look and function like natural teeth.
  • Crowns. Crowns are often placed on top of a decayed tooth, or after a root canal or other procedure. They protect and stabilize what is left of the original tooth. They too look and function like a natural tooth.

These and other procedures can restore the appearance and functionality of your teeth.

What’s The Latest With Veneers?

Seattle Prepless VeneersOne of the improvements in cosmetic dentistry is prepless veneers, which are offered at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle. Though thousands of people with traditional veneers are happy with the results, some have delayed this procedure because they do not want to give up healthy tooth structure.

Veneers Have Advanced

Prepless veneers are a less invasive procedure for transforming smiles. New prepless veneers are remarkably thin shells that adhere to the face of teeth and require no removal of tooth enamel. 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!

The Skilled Lab Technicians Behind the Scenes

Our experienced ceramists are proficient artists. They create each custom veneer with the ideal shape, color, and thickness for your new smile. Another great feature of the Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry prepless veneers application procedure is that it requires no anesthesia or drilling.

AtAdvanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, prepless DURAthin and traditional porcelain veneers are among our cosmetic dentistry options. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
