Dentistry FAQ’s

When it comes to color, everyone’s teeth are different. While bright and white might be what most people want for their teeth, the reality is that many people have yellowish, gray, or brown teeth. Discolored teeth are often attributable to poor oral health or bad habits such as smoking. It makes sense that many people want their teeth to be whiter. If surface stains are contributing to your teeth’s discoloration, you can try using a teeth whitening toothpaste to improve your teeth’s appearance.

When deciding which toothpaste to buy for yourself, or another adult, look at the benefits. For example, if you are looking to whiten teeth, whitening toothpaste could be a great option, or if you have sensitivity teeth, then toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth is a good idea.

When buying toothpaste for your child, look for one that contains fluoride and has an appealing taste.

Fillings are one way to treat a cavity (decayed tooth), chipped or broken teeth, and to decrease the gap between the teeth. The dentist can remove the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with another material; these are what we call fillings. The two most common types of fillings are amalgam fillings and composite fillings. Call our office to schedule your next visit!
