How to Make Your Smile a Perfect 10
 

How Would You Rate Your Smile?

Is it a perfect TEN, a seven, or perhaps even lower?

Does your smile make you look friendlier, and more youthful? It can.

If your front teeth have been chipped, cracked or damaged, permanently stained, are spaced improperly, crooked or misshaped, Veneers may be the solution for your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry allows dentists to Perform Porcelain veneer 'smile makeovers' which can address these and other issues. We are delighted to be able to offer this revolutionary technique to our patients.



Gum Disease and Diabetes
 

Gum disease is an infection of the gum, bone and tissues which can eventually result in an unstable base for your teeth, which can even lead to them falling out or needing removal.

Gum disease is a primary cause of tooth loss, and is often linked to diabetes. Diabetes slows blood circulation, which can contribute to the onset of infections of gum tissues. High saliva sugar levels associated with diabetes promote the growth of bacteria which causes gum disease.

Smoking and poor oral hygiene for people with diabetes significantly heightens the incidence of gum disease.

Fluoride: Here's what you should know
 

You're probably familiar with Fluoride - you're usually given some at the end of each of your dental cleanings. But what actually is fluoride? and how does it help our teeth? Considering fluoride's prominent usage at the dentist - and its presence in our drinking water - these are questions worth answering.

Fluoride is a natural and abundant mineral found predominantly in the earth's crust. Because our tooth enamel is primarily composed of minerals, the mineral make-up of fluoride contributes to re-mineralization of enamel when it accumulates.
