With Halloween just around the corner, you know that sweets will abound and your kids are going to enjoy as much of it as they can. This much candy and other treats are going to affect the health of their teeth and their smile. There are some steps you can take, as well as getting some help from Austin cosmetic dentistry, to help keep those smiles looking good.
Eating too much candy and soda over Halloween and other holidays can cause dental problems such as toothaches, sensitive teeth, and cavities. The World Dental Federation states that between 60 to 90 percent of school-age children have tooth decay, and almost 100 percent of adults do as well. Tooth decay, in various stages, can lead to significant pain. In children, it can hinder their learning in school and may result in poor grades.
When teeth are no longer healthy, the dentists at The Toothbar can help you. Ordinary dental procedures can be conducted to remove cavities. Teeth can also be cleaned and plaque and tartar removed.
For even better-looking teeth, you can get the following services from a downtown cosmetic dentist at The Toothbar.
One of the best ways to get whiter teeth is to go to a cosmetic dentist downtown and get teeth whitening. While some store-bought products will make your teeth whiter than they are now, only a dentist uses chemicals that can get them five or six times whiter. You can also get professional chemicals from the dentist, along with trays, that will also work well, and it will be cheaper.
Getting your teeth aligned at The Toothbar will also help to improve your smile. The Invisalign system uses clear retainers to straighten your teeth. This lets you or your teens get straight teeth and others will not even know it. Another advantage of this system which is available at an Austin cosmetic dentistry is that they can easily be removed, letting you eat what you want and clean your teeth afterward. Teens are sometimes bothered by braces, but this system can help them do it privately.
Cosmetic dentistry downtown has many ways to give you amazing smiles. One of them is dental veneers. These thin porcelain covers for your teeth can change imperfect teeth into beautiful teeth very quickly. They can be used to hide many dental flaws including teeth that are crooked, chipped, cracked, discolored, or short, and they can also be used to close gaps between teeth.
When teeth are damaged, they can be repaired with cosmetic bonding at our cosmetic dentist downtown office. This material is white and it can be used to repair a chipped tooth or hide a cracked one. The material is put on the tooth in layers and then hardened and polished. It will look like a natural tooth when finished. This procedure is one of the least costly when it comes to repairing teeth.
