Happy New Year – Ready for a New Smile?

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Hope your 2019 is off to a great start. When you made your New Year’s Resolution this year, chances are you’ve made some commitments to live healthier.

Perhaps you’ve resolved to better manage your stress, eat healthier, or visit your dentist every six months. Either way, the New Year is a time to start fresh.

If you’re unhappy with your smile, it’s time to make a New Year’s resolution to feel great about yourself in 2019. By getting a smile makeover, you can not only help your teeth look better but to actually be healthier.

Is it time for you to get your beautiful smile back? Let’s look at some of your potential treatment options for a smile makeover in 2019.

Who Qualifies for a New Smile?

Anyone who wants to improve their smile may qualify for a smile makeover. This includes people who want their smile to be:

  • Whiter
  • More uniform
  • Straighter
  • Have less space between teeth
  • Replace missing teeth

You can always talk with your dentist to see whether or not you would qualify for the specific treatment you’d like to have to improve your teeth.

The following cosmetic treatments could be an option for you depending on your unique smile!

  • Teeth whitening

    Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful brilliant smile.

    Cost-effective but dramatic, a teeth whitening can boost your confidence and remove deeper surface stains that a regular cleaning might not be able to remove.

    Teeth whitening is great for weddings, job interviews or promotions, anniversaries, and even getting back into the dating realm. When you want to treat yourself this New Year in just one appointment, consider a professional teeth whitening!

  • Porcelain veneers

    Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patients smile.

  • Invisalign

    As compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is invisible and removable, so you can smile, eat, drink, brush or floss hassle-free. Dr. Priyadarshini Beedu is a certified Invisalign provider serving Milpitas, San Jose and Fremont area. We offer a FREE consultation to evaluate if Invisalign is right for you.

With so many restorative options available to make your dream smile come true, there’s no reason to spend another year feeling embarrassed about your teeth.

From chips and staining to replacing missing teeth, let us help you get your smile back into shape in 2019. We look forward to helping you have a healthy and happy smile in the New Year!

78% of adults have some form of periodontal disease!

Did you know that 78% of the adult population has some form of periodontal disease?

When gums become infected and inflamed from periodontal disease, bacteria in plaque can spread and grow below the gum line. The bacteria can then enter into the blood stream and travel to major organs and begin new infections. Ongoing research suggests that periodontal disease is linked to heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes. 

You can learn more about Gum Disease on our website here

If your gums bleed or teeth look longer, contact us to discuss your periodontal health. Request an appointment or call our office at (408) 945-4333 to schedule a personal consultation during your next visit.

Helpful hints to care for your teeth:

  • Brush: You should use toothbrush with right size head and bristles to reach into all the crevices of your molars. Sometimes this may mean small or medium sized brush even for Adults.
  • Enough: Many people don’t brush long enough during a hectic morning. You should brush for at least 2 full minutes, twice a day. Keep a low-cost two-minute timer where you brush.
  • Technique: Start with your brush at a 45-degree angle to your gums and use short back and forth strokes across the sides and tops of your teeth. Then, hold the brush vertically and use several shorter strokes to focus on the backs of your teeth of the front anterior teeth where plaque  builds up often
  • Floss: Flossing gets to areas between teeth that are hard for bristles to get to. Floss should rub against the teeth in a motion that creates a forward or backward ‘C’ shape, wrapping the floss around each tooth.
  • Mouthwash:  Rinsing with mouthwash is the third part of your cleaning regiment. Mouthwash clears the debris that irritates the gumline and causes gingivitis.

You can find more information on maintaining your dental health on our website under Dental Health.

What age can kids brush their own teeth?

The age at which kids can brush their own teeth seems to be between the ages of 6 and 9. Some researchers concluded that 5 year-olds only brushed 25% of the surfaces of their teeth while 11 year-olds only brushed 50% of the surfaces of their teeth. Since every child is different, you will need to figure out when your child is ready to brush without any help.  You can use plaque disclosing tablets to decide when you need to stop checking on their cleaning regularly.

Procedure Spotlight:

Do you think you are too late for braces? You should consider Invisalign – The invisible alternative to quietly align your teeth back into shape. Learn more at https://www.missionviewdental.com/cosmetic-treatments/clear-braces/
