New Year, New Smile, New You!
Goodbye 2021 and hello 2022! We are officially into the new year, which means resolutions are in full swing! Starting off a new year is the ideal time to add positive and healthy goals to your lifestyle. If achieving a healthy smile is one of your New Year’s resolutions, Keith + Associates has you covered! Whether it’s to completely change the appearance of your grin, or replace missing teeth, we want to help you find a solution that works best for you.
It has been said that our teeth are the gateway to our overall health. Did you know that a healthy smile means you are protecting your mouth against certain diseases? By taking care of your teeth, you are preventing bacteria that can make way for rot and decay. Our teeth play such an important role in our lives each and every day! They help us chew, talk and even give us our face shape. A smile also affects our confidence and can have influence over our social lives and relationships. Keith + Associates understands the importance of why a heathy smile is so important for your everyday life and mental health! Our practice delivers state-of-the-art dental technology that allows us to address any cosmetic concern of yours in the most efficient way possible. This means you have options when it comes to enhancing your smile.
Here are some ways our team can help customize the smile that you deserve:
Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple, dental implants are great solution to restoring your smile. They have the ability to improve the health, function and overall appearance of your simile. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone to replace multiple or missing teeth. Titanium implants integrate with the bone of the jaw to create a stable and durable foundation for the restorative crown or prothesis. The placement of implants usually involves two surgical procedures and takes about six to eight months to complete the entire process.
Not only do dental implants help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration, but they can be attractive, stable and comfortable for almost any patient! Dental implants look and feel just like your real teeth. Most patients can’t even tell the difference between their natural teeth and the implant tooth. Our team will even match the color and the shape of the tooth to the original. This results in a natural, beautiful smile that will bring your confidence back to life! With proper oral care and hygiene, your implants can last many years or even a lifetime.
If you think dental implants are the right choice for you, we ask that you undergo a complimentary dental radiographic examination. During the examination we will go over your specific needs and concerns. Our team will work very closely with you to help make this procedure go as smoothly as possible.
Porcelain veneers are typically used to fix cracked, broken or chipped teeth. They can also help patients who are seeking to whiten their teeth, fix gaps, adjust their bite and minimize or maximize the shape of their teeth. Veneers are a perfect way to give you your ideal smile that you may not have been able to achieve naturally. If your teeth have multiple cosmetic flaws you’d like to get rid of, porcelain veneers could be exactly what you need. This treatment is perfect for anyone who is looking to permanently enhance the appearance of their smile.
Placing porcelain veneers is one of our many areas of focus here at Keith + Associates Dentistry. This procedure requires a high degree of technical skills as well as attention to cosmetic details. Your dentist will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced materials to achieve a natural, seamless finish. We design each case individually to match and enhance each patient’s smile.
A lot of planning goes into the design of porcelain veneers. It is essential to our team that we create a smile that is natural looking for each patient. Our thorough planning ensures that porcelain veneers blend in with the natural teeth, fit securely, and complement each patient’s facial structure. After planning the design process, we will prep and place the veneers. In order to place porcelain veneers, a small amount of enamel must be removed from the tooth. The porcelain veneer is then placed over the prepped tooth, with the veneer material essentially replacing the removed enamel. Once the treatment is complete our patients can leave with a strong, gorgeous smile! With the proper care, veneers are meant to last for years.
Our doctors will help you through every step of the process. If you are interested in dental veneers, please contact our office to set up a consultation. During your consultation we will talk about how you’re hoping to transform your smile. We want to make sure you’re completely happy with the process and the outcome of your new and improved smile.
If you haven’t smiled or laughed in years and are hesitant to, dental implants or veneers are both choices that can enhance your grin, confidence and overall oral health. With the right home care and investing in daily oral health habits, dental implants and porcelain veneers can last for many years! Nobody should have to live their life hiding their smile. That’s why Keith + Associates is eager and happy to guide you through your oral health journey. Once you love your smile; we guarantee you’ll do a lot more smiling and laughing!
