It is Important to Fill Cavities and Treat Gum Disease Prior to Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Posted on 3/20/2019 by Robert Leale
It is Important to Fill Cavities and Treat Gum Disease Prior to Cosmetic Dental ProceduresIt is common to want a beautiful smile, but in order for cosmetic dentistry procedures to be effective and long-lasting, your teeth need to be healthy first.

That's why we always examine your teeth and treat any type of issue before we embark on cosmetic dentistry procedures. This good foundation is crucial for a beautiful smile.

Your Initial Dental Exam

When it comes to creating a beautiful smile, our first approach is to always conduct a new patient exam. We'll thoroughly examine your mouth to examine the teeth and gums. We may even take digital X-rays to see what is happening underneath the gum line. Once we know what is going on in your mouth, we can create a good treatment plan that addresses the health of your teeth. This may include fillings for existing cavities or gum disease treatment.

After Treatment
After your cavities have been filled, your gum disease improves, and any other issues have been rectified, we'll address any cosmetic changes that might help you feel better about your smile. There are several great cosmetic procedures from which you can choose:

•  Dental bonding. This procedure involves tooth-colored resin which is applied to the teeth to correct imperfections and shape.
•  Veneers. Using thin shells of porcelain material, these caps offer a beautiful and long-term solution for many dental problems.
•  Whitening. If your teeth are stained, our whitening solutions can give you a beautiful, white smile.
•  Implants. Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss, as they involve titanium posts being inserted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth.

We will always take the approach of making sure your mouth is healthy before we pursue cosmetic dentistry options. Give us a call today to learn more about our restorative and cosmetic dentistry services and take a step toward achieving the healthy and beautiful smile of your dreams.
