It’s A Great Time To Have Ugly Teeth!

Hemby Bridge cosmetic smile makeover

Huh? A great time for ugly teeth? Yep, it’s true. It’s a great time because state-of-the art cosmetic dentistry from The Steele Creek Dentist provides several procedures to turn ugly to unbelievably beautiful.

A case in point: if your teeth are slightly crooked or have small chips or cracks, minimally-invasive porcelain veneers could be the answer. A veneer is a translucent, wafer-thin cover that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. Many people get veneers on the upper front teeth for a fabulous smile metamorphosis.

Have your gums receded and thereby exposed the metal base of an old dental crown? Soft tissue grafts and/or crown replacement can correct this common problem.

A missing tooth detracts from your smile, even if your other teeth look great. Many men and women have benefited from dental implants. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the natural-looking crown. Dental implants can also anchor full or partial dentures and significantly improve life for denture wearers.

If your teeth have extreme alignment problems, we encourage you to think about braces. Dental patients of all ages are undergoing orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth and transform their smile. The newest braces are faster, less noticeable, and more comfortable than ever before.

The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services that can transform ugly teeth into spectactular teeth. We also provide children’s dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us  today.

Clean Teeth, Happy Mouth

Good dental health means having healthy teeth and gums. Maintaining it is something that you have to work at every day. It can be a real balancing act: using the right oral care products, your personal oral care habits, and seeing The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte twice a year.

Your dental health strategy should include:

  • Daily brushing and flossing. You should brush and floss twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
  • Proper brushing. It’s important not only to brush, but to brush properly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a gentle, circular motion along the gum line. Take your time; a minimum of two minutes is recommended. Don’t forget to brush your tongue!
  • Flossing. Flossing not only loosens debris between the teeth, it also stimulates your gums and helps to lower inflammation. It also reduces plaque buildup. Should you floss before or after brushing? It doesn’t matter; just be sure you do it.
  • Using fluoridated toothpaste. There is a myriad of choices when it comes to toothpaste. Whether you prefer mint flavored or bubble gum, fluoride is the most important consideration. It is your best defense against cavities.
  • Limiting sugary and acidic foods. Acidic fruits, teas, and coffee contributes to enamel erosion. Sugar converts into acid when it’s in your mouth. You don’t have to avoid these foods entirely, but choose carefully and minimize.
  • Seeing the dentist twice a year. You saw this one coming, right? Your daily dental health care habits are essential, but so is the attention and care of a dentist. A professional teeth cleaning alone is worth the trip, but we can also identify issues before they become serious, and treat them.

The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte provides general and cosmetic dentistry, and has extended and weekend hours. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Twice A Year!

We say it all the time: see us twice a year for a dental checkup. And thank goodness, most of our patients at The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte are really good about making and keeping their appointments. It’s the best way to stay on top of their dental health.

As important as healthy teeth are, you should know that good dental health is also directly related to your overall health. Poor dental health has been linked to various diseases and conditions, such as heart disease, premature birth and low birth weight, and diabetes.

Furthermore, poor dental health leads to gum disease. With regular brushing and flossing, and twice yearly dental checkups, gum disease is 100 percent preventable.

The above should be enough to get anyone in to the dentist’s office twice a year. But if it isn’t, here are three more very good reasons why you should get a cleaning and checkup every six months.

  • Plaque and tartar. Even with brushing and flossing twice a day, plaque can build up on the teeth and gums. Plaque hardens into tartar. Simply put, there are areas in the mouth that your floss and toothbrush just cannot reach. Professional cleanings, however, can.
  • X-rays. By taking dental x-rays and updating them regularly, we can detect problems that a simple visual inspection won’t turn up. The sooner new issues are treated, the better: treatment will be easier, less painful, and less expensive.
  • Oral cancer. It isn’t just smokers who need to be concerned about oral cancer; anyone can get it. Finding it in its earliest stages gives you the best chance for successful treatment and a full recovery. We can check for any symptoms, and if we find them, tell you what you need to do.

As you can see, there are lots of reasons why it’s important to see The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte twice a year for a dental checkup and cleaning. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is really coming into its own. Trend-watchers say that every day, more and more people are choosing it to improve their smiles, with the procedures that are available at The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte.

We all want to look our best. But cosmetic dentistry isn’t about vanity; it is good for your dental health. For example, straight teeth in the correct position are easier to care for, and make for a healthier mouth. That probably explains why clear braces are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry options; they can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Clear braces are not, of course, the only cosmetic dentistry option. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures out there. A lot of people try to get whiter teeth at home, and there is a nearly bewildering selection of over-the-counter whitening products on the market. But none of them – not toothpastes, strips, or gels – can match the power of professional-grade teeth whitening.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can completely transform the appearance of your smile, and like other cosmetic dentistry, are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile.

These and other cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed without any pain at all. So if you’re looking to upgrade your smile, or simply restore integrity to yellowed or damaged teeth, The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte has a procedure for you. We have extended evening and weekend hours to fit any schedule. Set up an appointment with us today.

Do You Love Your Smile?

Charlotte Cosmetic Dentistry People who are happiest with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. If nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone. Most perfect smiles were not always that way; they are usually the result of cosmetic dentistry.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we provide the state-of-the-art procedures that deliver dazzling, flawless teeth. You are never too young or too old to improve your smile, but the results will definitely make you feel younger!

Two common smile problems are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth
Few people have pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and regular dental cleanings, our teeth darken as we age. Fortunately, the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure is teeth whitening.

Damaged Teeth
Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. We use porcelain veneers every day to remedy tooth trauma. Cosmetic bonding has been used with fabulous results for many years and bonding is usually a fraction of the price of a crown.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, a perfect smile is possible with a little help from cosmetic dentistry. Or maybe you just need a simple checkup and cleaning. Call for an appointment today.
