Answering Questions About Gingivitis

If you want to take better care of your smile, you may want to start asking questions about the different threats to it. Overlooking the threat of gum disease can lead to several problems, including a heightened risk for tooth loss! As bacteria build up on your roots, they can cause pockets around your teeth to form, leading to the spread of more harmful microbes and damage to the supportive tissues that help teeth remain in position. At our Temecula, CA dentist’s office, we can support you in your efforts to prevent these issues, and we can offer guidance on practicing better care at home to avoid them in the future. (more…)

Our Practice Can Straighten Crooked Smiles

There are different concerns about your smile that you can readily bring to your dentist’s attention. However, there are times when you may assume that an oral health issue needs to be brought up elsewhere. One of those issues is poor smile alignment, or malocclusion, which refers to any issues with poor teeth spacing. Our Corona, CA dentist’s office can actually help you with this; rather than look for an orthodontic specialist, you can enjoy quality care with a dental office you already rely on for routine services. We offer care with traditional braces as well as alternative appliances like Invisalign. We should note that there are times when this kind of work is not needed, as it will be possible to hide gaps or overlaps through cosmetic dental services. (more…)

Taking On Dental Discoloration

When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

Wisdom teeth are frequently extracted, often before they have even fully erupted. The reason for this is that people often lack room for them. This means that when they do erupt, they can press uncomfortably against neighboring teeth and even move them out of their alignment as they press in. They can also cause physical damage that will have to be dealt with. Because these teeth erupt at different times for different people, you may go longer than others you know before you have to arrange their extraction, or yours may have to occur at an earlier time. By keeping up with regular dental exams, you can stay informed about your oral health and learn when the time is right for removal. This is one of many important services that are provided during dental checkups at our Corona, CA dentist’s office. (more…)

Showing Off A Smile Improved By Veneers

There are different reasons why a person might be reluctant to show off their smile. Even if you are in an otherwise great mood, showing it off can make you uncomfortable because you are concerned about the color of your enamel, or about damages to your tooth structure that will draw unwanted attention. For these issues and others, our Riverside, CA dentist’s office can recommend cosmetic treatment to help. Through the use of porcelain veneers, we can actually take on many different types of flaws at one time. As a result, we can provide real benefits from treatment that only requires two appointments!
