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’s On Your Dental Wish List?

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.

So what’s on your dental wish list? At Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle we offer a wide range of cosmetic and general dentistry procedures. Call our office to schedule an appointment.

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!

The Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Guide To Dental X-Rays

The Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Guide To Dental X-Rays

Don’t know a periapical from a bitewing? This blog post from Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle takes a look at dental X-rays.

Panoramic
If you have ever stood in a huge camera apparatus and struggled to stay motionless while an automated camera made one slow pass around your head, then you have had a panoramic X-ray taken. These pictures help dentists see everything in one image: the complete upper and lower jaw.

Bitewing
Bitewing X-rays help us see what’s going on between teeth—something that is always needed but impossible with a visual exam. They also help us evaluate the jaw bone.

Periapical
These are similar to bite wings but can get a more distinct picture of the tooth roots and bone. These are frequently used to help diagnose an abscess in the root of a tooth.

Full-Mouth Series
This is a combination of periapical and bitewing X-rays. It gives a highly-detailed picture of all the teeth and the surrounding bone structure.

At Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle, we want the best possible dental health for all our patients. Services include general and restorative dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!

Sparkling Smiles At Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry

affordable teeth whitening Seattle

Welcome to the Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry dental blog, Seattle! I am dentist Brian McKay. Today’s post focuses on teeth whitening.

Unfortunately, our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but I see staining on young patients, as well. Seattle area residents of all ages want whiter teeth.

To protect from staining, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.

Tooth whitening products like kits, strips, whitening mouthwashes, and toothpastes can lighten stains slightly, but for a truly stunning smile, Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry is your brilliant solution!

If you have existing dental work such as porcelain crowns, dental bonding, or veneers, the whitening process can be trickier, but not impossible. Teeth whitening will not lighten the stains on your restorations and your whitened natural teeth will make your dental work look even duller in comparison. At Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry, we can upgrade your dull restorations including veneers, crowns or bondings.

In-office teeth whitening takes about an hour and bleaches teeth to a whiter-than-ever brilliance. Professional take-home whitening kits are also available at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry and can produce wonderful results over time.

For more information on getting a younger and brighter smile, contact our friendly and thorough team at 206-720-0600 for a tooth whitening consultation today!

Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry provides general and cosmetic dentistry including cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, and sedation dentistry. Ask us about financing options.

Can You Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces?

Spring Retainers Can Correct Alignment Without Braces

Many people could improve their smile with braces, yet only a few of them are currently undergoing treatment. A common reason people use for not getting orthodontic treatment is because they think you need to wear metal braces. The team at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle can help set you (and your mouth) straight.

You don’t need metal braces for every tooth alignment issue, however. An orthodontic appliance known as a spring retainer is often a great solution for people who need minimal adjustment to correct alignment (and don’t have an overbite or underbite).

Spring retainers are removable, less noticeable, and less costly than conventional braces. Spring retainers can move teeth 1-2 mm in the desired direction, unlike traditional retainers. We often recommend them for orthodontic patients who didn’t wear their retainer after having orthodontic treatment in their teens.

Creating a spring retainer is not complicated: an orthodontics lab forms a mold of the teeth based on the desired end result. We use spring retainers  most frequently on the front teeth but sometimes use them for teeth farther back in the mouth.

If you have ever wondered what state-of-the art cosmetic dentistry can do for you, or have some dental issues, call Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle. Our services include general dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants, and cosmetic dentistry.
