Bone resorption and patients oral habits are taken into consideration before deciding if the individual is a good candidate for the placement of dental implants. The treatment plan is created to meet the specific needs of the patient and by the end of initial visit with cosmetic dentistry services, the patient will have a full understanding of what the treatment entails and the cost associated with it.

Sometimes patients may become a little nervous when it comes time for their dental visit. However, for a true dental phobia, someone walking in the front door and smelling the natural odor of a dentist office, will send them running.

There are many things that can get in the way of a great smile, especially for patients who have porcelain veneers. Some patients will clench and grind their teeth at night when they have a condition known as bruxism, which can cause damage to the porcelain veneers, the bone structure and the jaw joint. Fortunately, teeth grinding can be prevented by wearing a night guard, which is a plastic object that forms a physical barrier protecting the porcelain veneers.

Dental night guards are also valuable for patients who have their natural teeth, but regularly grind them. The good news is that patients are not able to grind their teeth if they have good bites, even if they are grinding their teeth at night as a form of stress relief.

Night guards are able to correct various problems related to the jaw, including jaw pain, TMJ and closed lock jaw. The Charlotte cosmetic dentists will be a

In the past five years, a vast array of creams, paste, paint-on chemicals and even UV light kits have flooded the market. Each one promises a unique, easy-to-use way of teeth whitening, but it is not always a sure thing that these products will get the results desired in a timely manner. Some of these products can also cause an excessive amount of pain and sensitivity in people who are predisposed for sensitive teeth. That is why it may be better to seek out dentists in Charlotte, North Carolina instead.

When taking cosmetic whitening options into consideration, realize that not all teeth whitening has to be done in a dentist chair. Dentists in Charlotte can send patients home with a whitening kit that will both be superior in whitening effectiveness and free of complications like swollen gums and sensitive teeth.
