Porcelain veneers are thin facades that are bonded to your natural teeth, allowing you to make big changes to the appearance of your smile.
If you’re scared of going to the dentist and have put it off for years, you’re not alone. In fact, dental anxiety is really common and most of the patients we see suffer from it to some degree.
Dental implants are an incredibly sophisticated way of replacing missing or failing teeth. They’ve been used for over 50 years and are the closest alternatives to natural teeth.
The biggest benefit of dental implants is that almost everyone is a good candidate. If you are an adult who is missing one or more teeth and is in good general health, then you’re an ideal candidate for dental implants. But sometimes, they are not always convenient or physically viable. There are some people who cannot get implants because they have certain contraindications that could be hazardous to their health, or will simply invite failure of the implant. In this article, we’re going to talk about dental implants, specifically All-on-4 implants, reasons why you may not be a good candidate for them, and your available options should you not qualify.
A perfect smile is certainly a highly coveted accessory that everyone wants, regardless of age. The appearance of the teeth can affect one’s self-confidence and quality of life. Not everyone is born with a beautiful smile, but it is something achievable. If you have crooked teeth, there are ways available to straighten them for a perfect smile. While metal braces are generally considered the easiest way to straighten teeth, they are not to everyone’s liking.
Good oral health is important at any age. As you get older, however, the body's cells, tissues, and organs are subjected to ageing changes that have an effect on all the body parts, including the mouth. The rate at which the cells renew slows, your bones can become less dense and strong, and tissues can get less elastic and thinner. Also, your immune system may weaken, leading to frequent infections that take longer to heal.
