Veneers: Are They Right For You?

Veneers: Are They Right For You?

Blog Single

Have you always wanted a better and brighter smile but found that whitening and braces or aligners weren’t enough or were too hard to keep up with? Veneers could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Dental veneers can protect your teeth while improving your overall appearance. There are many reasons someone may want veneers: crooked teeth, gaps between the teeth, stained teeth, and broken or damaged teeth. Veneers are a natural-looking and healthy option for anyone experiencing issues with their smile due to these common areas of concern. 

Porcelain Veneers

There are two types of veneers that we specialize in: porcelain and composite resin. Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored shells that fit over the front-facing side of each of your teeth. These shells are made in-house and have long been known for their durability and their striking similarities to natural teeth.

At Cakmes Dental Studio, we offer DURAthin porcelain veneers – an extremely thin, custom-made shell piece. Our patients’ favorite part of the DURAthin veneers is that these shells eliminate the need to drill, grind, or shave down the existing tooth. Many people have heard horror stories or seen images of veneers before the shell is replaced, oftentimes resembling sharp, chipped baby teeth, and are turned off by the idea of veneers. Utilizing our advanced technology eliminates any of the fear of shaved teeth, resulting in an improved and enhanced smile while keeping the healthy structure of the teeth. 

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers have gained popularity due to their advancements in recent years. When going this route, the resin (a tooth-colored restorative material used to replace decayed portions of a tooth and its overall structure) is applied directly to each tooth in layers, in order to give the look and feel of natural teeth. While composite resin veneers have come a long way, they must be taken care of with extreme care and detail, more so than even natural teeth. If not properly maintained, these veneers will stain or wear at a much faster rate than porcelain veneers. 

How Cakmes Dental Studio Can Help

If you’re looking for a way to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of, veneers could be your answer. Our team is extremely skilled in both porcelain and composite resin veneers – sometimes, even a combination of the two is what a patient needs. We’ll determine the best approach for your specific wants and needs through a consultation at Cakmes Dental Studio. Keep in mind that while veneers may be able to improve the function of your teeth, their main purpose is to improve your appearance. If you think veneers could be what you’ve been missing, reach out to our team for a consultation and more information. We would love to transform your smile into a happy and healthy one.

Periodontal Care

Blog Single

When thinking about everything that contributes to a healthy smile, many may think that brushing and flossing are sufficient. The truth, though, is that gum care is just as important as dental care. Periodontal care, also called gum care, is an essential part of maintaining good oral health. 

Healthy gums contribute to strong teeth and a healthy mouth, overall. If left untreated, gum issues can cause severe damage. When bacteria and plaque build up below or along the gum line, it can lead to inflammation, which may result in gum disease, gingivitis, or periodontitis. Bacterial infections can also attack bone tissue which can cause teeth to become loosened from the gums. 

Many people who have gum disease in the early stages don’t realize it or are unaware of the signs. Inflamed or swollen gums, loose teeth, tenderness around the teeth along the gum line, and bleeding gums are often the first signs and symptoms of gum disease. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, there are links between periodontal disease (gum disease) and several systemic diseases. The diseases include, but are not limited to, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, respiratory diseases, and cardiovascular disease. Gum disease has also been linked to preterm childbirth. When handled in the early stages, gum disease is easily treated and has an excellent prognosis. 

Before brushing your teeth, always be sure to floss in between each tooth. This allows you to reach areas that your toothbrush can not, which helps remove any remaining food in the teeth and can help prevent bacterial growth. Regular dental cleanings are also important in the overall health of your gums. Your dentist will be able to examine your gums to check for any irregularities or signs of infection.

If you have any gum concerns or are in need of a regular cleaning, Cakmes Dental Studio is here to provide you with the best dental care available so that you can be confident in your healthy and beautiful smile. Our office offers a variety of periodontal care services to ensure that your gums stay in great shape. A few of the services we offer include periodontitis treatment, gingivitis treatment, bacterial infection treatment, and inflammation care.
