Cosmetic Dentistry for Some Help

Cosmetic Dentistry is something that everyone can benefit from. Even people who have nearly flawless smiles can always do with a nip and tuck so to speak.

Whether you were blessed with a bright and white smile or one that isn’t so model perfect there is always help.

Keeping Your Smile Healthy and Beautiful

While this cosmetic dentist in Kalispell’s primary goal is to get or keep your smile healthy he and his team can also go an additional step with cosmetic dentistry.

If you follow this blog, you will recall how important it is to have a professional overseeing your cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Any and all DIY dental treatments, including teeth whitening must always be overseen by your dentist.

If you don’t, you are asking for problems that just could make your teeth and even your gums pay the price for life.

With that being said you have come to the right place for all of your cosmetic dentistry needs.

Straighter Teeth without Braces

If you have always wanted straighter teeth consider invisible braces. Invisible braces gently move teeth into position without pushing and pulling.

Conventional braces push and pull your teeth which in some cases can cause issues in the future. Clear removable aligners mean a better smile. Best of all it takes less time.

That’s right, with removable aligners you won’t have to wait up to two years for straight teeth. With clear braces you might see a straighter smile in just six weeks.

With clear removable aligners no one will know that you are having work done except you and Dr. Clark.

Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions for All Smiles

Of course if your issues involve more than crooked teeth, talk to Northwest Center for Dentistry about dental implants.

Even if you have been wearing dentures for years you may still qualify for dental implants even if you require bone grafting.

Bone grafting replaces lost bone. No one can escape lost bone unless it is replaced with an artificial tooth root.

Dental implants consist of a titanium or Zirconia post that your dental implant team places in or on your jawbone. Dental implants are truly the best replacement for missing teeth.

Chronic Bad Breath Mostly Preventable

If the first thing people do when they come face to face is turn away, it could have something to do with your breath. After all, bad breath is more common than you think.

People with halitosis will never know they have it unless someone else breaks the news to them. According to your Kalispell dentist it is impossible to smell your own breath. Regardless of what you try it just isn’t going to happen.

Chronic Halitosis

The most common cause of halitosis is poor oral hygiene. Northwest Center for Dentistry explains that slack habits create bad breath.

For example, if you don’t brush and floss every day you will have bad breath. There is no way around it. The only way to prevent bad breath is to brush twice and floss once a day, but that’s not all.

Bad breath is a build-up of plaque and tartar. While you can remove plaque yourself, tartar can only be removed by a dentist or dental hygienist. That’s what makes twice yearly professional cleanings an essential part of oral hygiene.

While poor oral hygiene is the number one reason people suffer from bad breath it isn’t the only one.

What Causes Bad Breath?

Dr. Cameron Clark explains that while poor oral hygiene is at the top of the list there are a few other things that could be to blame.

Those other things include:

  • Dry Mouth
  • Diet
  • Infrequent Dental Appointments
  • Keto Diets
  • Diets High in Sugar
  • Certain Medical Conditions

Those Conditions Above

Chronic dry mouth can be caused from both over the counter and prescriptions can make your mouth dry. Dry mouth means a lack of saliva. Saliva is what washes the plaque and bacteria away.

Diets that are high in sugar and people who are on the Keto diet will notice a difference. When it comes to bad breath both could be the culprit.

Underlying medical conditions such as sinus and nasal infections, chronic tonsillitis, post nasal drip and even acid reflux can be the reason you suffer from halitosis.

What You Can Do About Bad Breath

Bad breath doesn’t have to be a life sentence when you schedule an appointment with your Kalispell family dentist.

Northwest Center for Dentistry will help you determine the cause of your bad breath whether it stems from your teeth and gums or something else. If it is something else, a doctor’s appointment should be next in order.

Kör is the answer if whiter brighter teeth seem to elude you because of your love of coffee, tea and red wine it’s time to schedule an appointment for with Northwest Center for Dentistry.

This dental practice uses the best professional whitening products that will lighten your teeth up to 8 shades.

Kör for Whiter Teeth

If your teeth are not as white as they use to be do not be tempted by online tooth whiteners. Do not be tempted by over the counter tooth whitening products either. Only professional teeth whitening will give you the smile you have been dreaming of.

While over the counter products are not as strong as prescription products some businesses are now selling professional products online.

Those professional whiteners must only be applied by a cosmetic dentist because they are prescription strength and could cause sensitivity or damage.

Kör for a Dazzling Smile

Kör is the professional whitening system offered by your Kalispell cosmetic dentist. This whitening system works two ways in that you can opt for in office teeth whitening or customized take home trays.

Some patients choose both. They choose both for touch ups and in between chairside tooth whitening sessions from Dr. Cameron Clark.

Kör Gets the Job Done

One of the best things about the best professional teeth whitening product on the planet is how great it works. Unlike most other types of whiteners it works on intrinsic stains as well.

For example people who had too much fluoride as a child, and those who were treated with tetracycline have interior stains that are difficult, if not impossible, to remove but not with Kör.

This tooth whitener will work through the enamel making it to the dentin, which is where the interior stains come from. That is what makes this teeth whitening system better than the others.

Dental Implants a Remarkable Thing

Dental implants are remarkable and will change your life. Northwest Center for Dentistry provides dental implants for people with missing teeth as well as other types of replacements including dentures, partial dentures and dental bridges.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

According to Dr. Cameron Clark replacing even one tooth makes a huge difference to your smile. That is because one missing tooth will affect your other teeth.

It will also cause that part of the jawbone to disappear. Called resorption it happens because there is nothing to exercise the bone.

Your Kalispell implant dentist explains that other teeth will move into the space left by the missing tooth.

When that happens, your teeth crowd each other making it extremely difficult to brush and floss. In fact, the more lost teeth the harder it is to take care of the teeth that you have left.

More Teeth Mean a Longer Life

Recent research indicates that people who have twenty teeth or more by the time they reach their 70s will live longer than those with fewer teeth who are the same age.

Whether you have natural teeth or dental implants, teeth with roots will keep you healthier overall.

Because dental implants act as natural tooth roots your jawbone gets all of the exercise it needs. Furthermore, you will not look older than you are.

When the jawbone shrinks it tends to make people look older. Dental implants add years to your appearance and feel just like your old teeth did.

Osseointegration and Dental Implants

A process called osseointegration is something that happens when something is placed next to the bone. The same thing happens with dental implants.

Dental implants are made from titanium or Zirconia for people with metal allergies. Implants fuse to the bone just like natural tooth roots.

The healing process takes about six to nine months. Once healed light reflecting artificial teeth are placed on top of the posts giving you a beautiful smile that will last for the rest of your life.

No More Missing Teeth

Your implant dentist in Kalispell cannot stress the importance of healthy teeth and gums. If you have missing teeth you and the team from Northwest Center for Dentistry will come up with the best solution. In most cases that solutions is dental implants.

If you would like to learn more about the best replacement for missing teeth send a direct message and schedule a dental implants consultation in Kalispell today.
