Can My Oral Health Affect My Smile’s Appeal?

Yes, it can! Smiles need a strong foundation of healthy teeth and gums to remain beautiful. Correcting damage, decay, and gum disease should be a priority. While we provide services to help treat these issues, we also believe that achieving healthy, radiant smiles can be part of the corrective treatment.

During cosmetic consultations, we take the time to explain the important role good oral health plays in your smile’s beauty as well as your treatment results. In addition to providing dental care, we also coach you on oral hygiene tips, best practices, and how caring for your smile at home benefits your aesthetics and overall well-being.

How Do You Help Treat Gum Disease?

In addition to using powerful antibiotics, we perform tooth scaling to fight off bacteria and remove toxic plaque buildup from teeth above and below the gumline. During root planing, we smooth the root surfaces to promote proper gum healing and reattachment.

If you have missing teeth due to gum disease, we can restore your smile with dental implant placement and supported restorations. Contact us to discover your options today!

How Can I Whiten My Teeth Professionally?

Tooth enamel is porous, making it easy for dark foods and drinks to stain your teeth. Beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine, and foods like tomato sauces and dark berries are common causes for discoloration. Teeth can also change color due to age, trauma, taking certain medications, and genetics.

Whatever the cause of your staining, we provide convenient treatment for whitening with customized take-home kits! We offer powerful solutions using Pola and Opalescence Go™. These systems provide safe, effective, and stunning results, allowing you to enjoy a brighter smile!

How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

Treatment begins with a quick dental visit. During this appointment, we take impressions of your smile, which are sent to a trusted lab to make your custom whitening trays. Once ready, we invite you back to our office so you can receive your kit. We also provide you with instructions on how to use and apply the whitening solution to your trays properly. With take-home whitening kits, you can control where, when, and how you whiten your smile!

7 Ways to Keep Your Smile Bright After Whitening!

At East Lake Dental Arts, we want you to help keep your smile whiter for longer. Below are seven tips we recommend to our teeth whitening patients.

  1. Avoid dark foods and drinks after whitening.
  2. Drink plenty of water and eat nutritious, fibrous foods.
  3. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes.
  4. Consider using an approved whitening toothpaste once or twice a week.
  5. Floss at least once a day or after every meal, if possible.
  6. Keep up with your professional dental cleanings every six months.
  7. Consider using your take-home kit for touch-ups before a major event.

Creating Picture-Perfect Smiles with Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin, yet resilient shells made from porcelain materials. When carefully placed on the surfaces of your teeth, veneers can mask multiple issues and provide you with a more symmetrical, picture-perfect smile.

With veneers, we can address issues such as dental chips, cracks, wear, mild misalignment, severe discoloration, and unwanted gaps between teeth.

Will My Veneers Look Natural?

Absolutely! The purpose of veneers is to provide you with a smile that is as close to perfect as possible while also looking completely natural. During your consultation, our dentists take the time to evaluate the qualities that make you unique. This includes everything from your skin tone and eye color to how your lips move when you speak.

Cosmetic Restorations for Discreet Tooth Repair

We provide restorations that use natural-looking composite and porcelain materials. These treatments include white fillings, porcelain inlays, onlays, and crowns. To discover which option is best for you, continue reading below.

White composite fillings provide quick and easy repairs to teeth with small amounts of damage, wear, and decay. We shade-match the composite material to the color of your natural enamel. Once the decay is removed, we fill in the areas with the filling material. For chips and other damage, we can apply it directly to the surfaces of your tooth. This allows us to provide you with effortless repairs while helping you preserve natural aesthetics.

Porcelain inlays and onlays are great treatments for teeth with larger areas of missing enamel after decay removal but not enough damage to need a crown. The customized inserts of porcelain material are made to fit perfectly to the areas in need of treatment. Both inlays and onlays help to restore the biting surfaces of your teeth.

Porcelain crowns are restorations designed to look and function exactly like your natural teeth. Crowns cover the entire structure of a vulnerable tooth above the gum line. They help to protect and strengthen your treated tooth. Crowns also help preserve natural aesthetics and can be used in combination with other treatments, like dental implants.

Reviving Your Smile After Tooth Loss with Beautiful Implant Restorations

At East Lake Dental Arts, we proudly provide top-quality restorations supported by implants. When your custom restoration is attached to dental implants, you can enjoy a new and beautiful smile. You can also enjoy the preservation of natural facial features, neighboring teeth, and improved quality of life.

Our implant restorations include:

  • Porcelain crowns to replace a single missing tooth using one dental implant
  • Fixed bridges that replace two or more missing teeth in a row using two implants
  • Partial dentures to restore multiple teeth missing in your smile
  • Complete dentures for restoring an entire arch of missing teeth
