Super Smiles For Life

implant dentures Charlotte

Teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and good dental health begins with pediatric dentistry from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte!

We recommend a child’s first dental visit when as soon as the first tooth comes in, or by the first birthday. An early check is the first step in preventing troubles and setting the stage for lifelong dental health.

As children begin this lifelong journey, we start keeping meticulous records of their dental health, including the development of their jaws. This usually includes dental x-rays. We also share information with parents.

The condition of a child’s teeth can change fairly quickly. A slight change in diet or habit, like thumb sucking, may be noticeable after just six months. Suh issues can make the child vulnerable to tooth decay or jaw development problems, so the sooner we can identify them, the better.

Lots of parents wait too long to start bringing their children in for a checkup. This can have serious consequences. Kids should see the dentist twice a year, just like their parents should.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, pediatric dentistry can identify problems before they get serious. We want all our young patients to enjoy excellent dental health – now, and throughout their lives. For the grownups, we also offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

Oral Health In Childhood Has A Lifelong Impact

kids dentist Charlotte

Keeping your child’s teeth healthy is important while they are young. Regular checkups with The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte are essential!

Tooth decay and gum disease can hamper speech development. It can make it more difficult for the child to eat healthy food. Unhealthy teeth reduce a child’s self-confidence. This, in turn, puts mental health at risk. Mouth pain can also influence school performance.

Maintaining oral health in childhood is essential for a high quality of life.

The Health Benefits Continue Into Adulthood

When your son or daughter moves into adulthood, oral health should still be a priority.

You may be surprised that inadequate oral hygiene increases the risk of several diseases:

  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Blood Cancers
  • Lung Cancer

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we help children and adolescents maintain healthy teeth and gums. We also detect problems in the early stages when they are easier to fix. Pediatric dentistry is among our specialties. We have extended evening and weekend hours to fit any busy schedule. Call today!

You, Only Better

cost of dental crowns Charlotte

Having a flawless smile is a personal benefit that you can’t put a pricetag on. Is your smile less than flawless? You’re not alone! But with cosmetic dentistry from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, those flaws can be corrected.

Before we continue, though, we must point out a misconception. A lot of people think that cosmetic dentistry is all about appearance. Yes, it will make your smile look a lot better. But your teeth will be healthier, too!

If you’re one of those people who tries not to smile because of flawed teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help. An improved smile goes a long way to boosting your self-esteem and self-confidence.

Available procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers. Thin shells of medical-grade ceramic are attached to the fronts of your teeth. They can cover up chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. They are also good for covering damaged tooth enamel.
  • Teeth whitening. Years of consuming tea and coffee and other tooth-staining food and drink really take a toll on your smile. You’ll find a lot of over-the-counter whitening products at the store, but none can match the power of professional-strength whitening.
  • Dental implants. One of the true marvels of modern dentistry, dental implants are titanium posts inserted into your jaw. One can support an artificial tooth, and several can support a full dental arch. Because the implant fuses with the bone, your biting and chewing power is restored.

Correcting problem teeth can reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues. Plus you’ll have a smile that you’ll love! Cosmetic dentistry from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

The Steele Creek Dentist For A Smile Impossible To Ignore

Is it possible to stop, or at least slow down, the aging process? Goodness knows, we try! From working out at the gym to face lifts to Botox to hair implants, we’re contantly trying to maintain that youthful appearance. Another great option are porcelain veneers from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are affixed to the fronts of your teeth. It’s an easy way to mask any flaws, such as chips, cracks, or gaps between teeth.

Veneers are also great for whitening your smile. Our teeth naturally grow dull over the years. A lifetime of coffee or tea, red wine, and a host of other food and drink take a toll. You’ll still need to brush, of course. But veneers are largely stain-resistant, so once they’re in place you’ll never have to worry about discoloration again.

There is more than just a cosmetic benefit to porcelain veneers. Tooth enamel can grow thin over the years, from overzealous brushing and highly acidic foods and drinks. Unfortunatley, enamel won’t grow back: once it’s gone, it’s gone. Veneers are great treatment for teeth that have compromised enamel.

Porcelain veneers from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte leave you with a youthful new smile, one that your friends will find impossible to ignore. They’re just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

5 Tips For Treating Mouth Sores

Prevent Mouth Sores Steele Creek

When our patients at The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte get mouth sores, we advise them to evaluate what they’re eating and make some changes. By following these tips, you too can avoid the discomfort of eating and help to increase the speed of healing.

1. Eat soft or pureed foods. Don’t worry, you won’t have to eat baby food—plenty of adult dishes fit the bill:

cream soups
yogurt
hot cereal
mashed potatoes
puddings

2. Keep your meals bland for a while. It’s humdrum, but watch out for overly spicy, tart, salty or acidic foods while you have a mouth sore.

3. Also, keep it cool. Only eat foods served at room temperature or chilled.

4. Use a straw so that whatever you are drinking can avert the mouth sore altogether.

5. Try to moisten dry foods. You can add sauces, dressings, and gravies to your meals.

We hope that these suggestions will help you the next time you suffer from a mouth sore.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte our services include general and cosmetic dentistry, and children’s dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Let’s Talk About Your Smile!

dental implant free consultation Charlotte

How do you like your smile? At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we know how easy it is to be your own worst critic. But we also know lots of people don’t care for one aspect or another of their smile. We can improve any smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Maybe you have a tooth that’s been chipped since middle school, or a gap between your front teeth that’s been there since forever. Or maybe your smile has grown dull and yellow over the years.

Popular Procedures

There are cosmetic dentistry procedures that can address just about any smile issue you might have.

  • Porcelain veneers. Thin shells of medical-grade porcelain are designed to fit over the front side of your teeth. They’ll hide chips, cracks, gaps, and other flaws. They’re custom-made to your teeth, look totally natural, and leave you with a great new smile.
  • Bonding. Bonding is another way to correct any flaws in your teeth. A special material is bonded to a tooth, and shaped to create a strong structure that looks fabulous.
  • Crowns. Dental crowns are fitted over teeth that are discolored or in need of restoring due to damage or decay. They are long-lasting and strong.
  • Whitening. Teeth whitening is an easy, popular procedure that lightens the color of your teeth. The same whitening agents found in whitening toothpastes, but at much higher concentrations, bleach out years of stains and other discolorations and give you a dazzling smile.
  • Dental implants. Dental implants replace missing teeth. A titanium post is inserted into the jaw and fuses with the bone. An artificial tooth goes on top. Implants look and function like natural teeth.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, our cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile into something special. We offer extended evening and Saturday hours that fit your busy schedule. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Choosing A Toothbrush For Your Child

pediatric dental Charlotte

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we are often asked how to choose the most basic tool of oral hygiene, the toothbrush. Picking a toothbrush can be as hard as choosing a paint color, and there seems to be just as many choices.

If you have visited the dental section of your grocery store lately, you know what we mean. There are brushes with bristles of varying lengths, brushes that massage your gums, and brushes that change color when they are used up.

Choosing a Toothbrush for a Child

When picking a toothbrush for a child, make sure the brush feels comfortable in his or her hand. If the size and angle feel awkward, the child will be less likely to use it long enough to clean all areas of the mouth. Children do not necessarily need a child-sized toothbrush. Some kids can manage an adult size brush better than a short, narrow child-size brush. If you are unsure, ask us.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, our services include children’s dentistry. Getting your youngster in for a checkup is a little easier with our extended evening and weekend hours. Call for an appointment today!

3 Ways To Keep Your Mouth Happy!

Charlotte Teeth Bleaching

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we are committed to helping our patients have good oral health. This post focuses on something mouth-related that doesn’t get as much attention as cavities or cosmetic dentistry: our sense of taste.

A happy mouth is not only a healthy mouth but also a mouth that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods. And it turns out, healthy oral habits benefit our taste buds. Here are some tips to help you better enjoy all the flavors and textures that can make each meal a delight.

1) Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly by your dentist. Adequate saliva is also necessary for avoiding tooth decay and gum disease.

2) Steer clear of salt- and fat-heavy processed food with artificial flavors. They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.

3) Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are responsible for many serious health problems, but many men and women don’t realize that their sense of taste is dulled while they smoke. Olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we want all of our patients to have the beautiful smile they have always desired. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Please call us to schedule your next checkup today!
