Can Porcelain Veneers Help You Deal With All Of Your Smile Flaws?

You can point out all of the changes you would like to make to your smile, but can you name a single cosmetic dental procedure that is capable of addressing all of them? For people who are insecure about the appearance of their teeth, cosmetic dentistry can be an attractive option. However, they may talk themselves out of looking into treatment because they believe the process would be too long or involved for their liking. For many people, treatment with porcelain veneers can effectively resolve all smile-related cosmetic concerns. Our Londonderry, NH dental office can meet with you and discuss the role that veneers can play in dramatically improving the way you look! (more…)

Dealing With Dentures That No Longer Feel Comfortable

When a person is given a denture to replace a row of teeth, they can find that the appliance is carefully designed to fit comfortably. While the appliance is removable, it can remain in place with relative ease thanks to natural suction, or through the use of epoxies. Unfortunately, that secure fit may not be permanent. Why would someone stop feeling confident in their ability to keep their dentures in position? This issue can arise not because your dentures have changed, but because jawbone deterioration has taken effect. After losing teeth, we no longer have a means of stimulating our jawbone while biting and chewing, and that leads to the loss of beneficial nutrients. Fortunately, implant-held dentures can both remain stable and provide stimulation so that your body once again sends nutrients to your jaw! (more…)

Ask Your Dentist How You Can Show Off A Whiter Smile!

Have you already made the switch to a whitening toothpaste? Did you give a store bought whitening kit a try? Many people turn to teeth whitening products that they can find at their local grocery store or pharmacy to deal with their embarrassment over dental discoloration. These products can help take care of stains on the surface of your enamel, but they can be less effective against stains that have gathered over time. They can also be less useful if the color of your teeth are affected by internal issues rather than stains. At our Londonderry, NH dental office, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that can produce more exciting results. For those who need help dealing with intrinsic discoloration, we can discuss other cosmetic dental treatment options. (more…)

What To Expect From An Implant-Held Prosthetic

If you are ready to do something about tooth loss, or if you are ready to transition from an older prosthetic to one held by a dental implant (or multiple implants), our Londonderry, NH dentist’s office can help you. We can recommend prosthetic work with dental implants to address different degrees of tooth loss. The presence of implants makes it easier for you to bite and chew with greater ease, and they help you avoid long-term problems with tooth loss like jawbone deterioration. Many people who have lost teeth can qualify to receive implants. With that said, if you put off treatment, you give yourself more time to experience the kinds of issues that might prolong the process of restoring your smile with permanent appliances! (more…)

Can Veneers Correct Problems With My Teeth Spacing?

Teeth spacing concerns make many people unhappy with their appearance. Gaps and overlaps do not have to be significant to feel noticeable, and those minor issues can throw off the symmetry of your smile, creating a larger concern over the way you look. While many people who have spacing problems benefit from orthodontic treatment, some gaps and overlaps can be carefully hidden with porcelain veneers! If your problems can be addressed through this cosmetic dental procedure, you can see exciting results in as little as two appointments at our Londonderry, NH dentist’s office! Veneers are also effective at resolving issues with discoloration, concerns about the size and shape of teeth, and even problems with damage. (more…)

How Cosmetic Dentistry Helps Restore Dull Or Worn Teeth

The gradual buildup of teeth stains, along with friction on your enamel from biting and chewing, can lead to worsening cosmetic issues that make you unhappy with your smile. These issues are not necessarily signs of poor oral health, but they can make your smile appear less healthy, and they can also make you look older. To combat these problems, many people look into cosmetic dentistry. Our Londonderry, NH dentist’s office can help you fight these problems. We can discuss teeth whitening treatment if you are concerned about discoloration from stains. We can also make plans to improve the shape, size, and general condition of your teeth by placing porcelain veneers. (more…)

Do You Feel Stuck With Dentures That Feel Loose Or Awkward?

The dentures provided to patients are custom-made so that they provide a comfortable fit and look natural. Unlike partial dentures, which can be retained to remaining teeth with discreet clasps, full dentures often depend on suction or epoxies to stay in place. While they can fit well for a time, people who wear them can find that they become less comfortable as time passes. What is causing this change? Tooth loss leads to problems with jawbone deterioration, as the loss of teeth means the loss of their roots. Without the roots, there is no longer any meaningful stimulation of your jawbone, so the bone loses access to nutrients that keep it healthy. Dental implant-held dentures can restore stimulation, which means they can protect you against this. You can also find that the support of dental implants gives you more confidence in the stability of your dentures when you bite, chew and speak! (more…)

Stop Living With Bite Problems Caused By Tooth Loss!

The changes in a person’s life triggered by tooth loss tend to be frustrating. One problem is a loss of confidence in your smile, as you can feel reluctant to reveal the gap where your lost tooth once resided. Another issue, one that can lead to increasing discomfort and dietary restrictions, is a change in your bite function. Losing just one tooth can make it difficult for you to bite and chew comfortably. Losing more can further limit what you are able to consume, leading to difficulties with maintaining a healthy diet. Our Londonderry, NH dentist’s office can help you by recommending prosthetic dental work with dental implants. Implants can improve your bite function and comfort with your restoration, which can benefit you over time. We can even help you replace a full row of teeth by recommending implant-held dentures!
