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.

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry

Charlotte Cosmetic DentistryThis article from The Steele Creek Dentist explains how general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry are different.

General dentists are dedicated to preventing and treating oral diseases such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, let’s say, a cavity between two teeth, a general dentist will determine the best way to restore the tooth involved.

Cosmetic dentists perform elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Cosmetic dentistry procedures available at The Steele Creek Dentist include teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.

Some dentists provide both general and cosmetic dentistry services. In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a dental patient comes in after receiving an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth needs to be restored to avert decay. The tooth is also less structurally sound, so it is vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile. Depending on the specifics of the damage, there are several restorative options. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all used to repair a damaged tooth.

As you can see, there is not always a definitive line between general and cosmetic dentistry. At The Steele Creek Dentist, we provide both, along with pediatric dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Dental Crowns Solve Dental Dilemmas

Cosmetic Dental Solutions in CharlotteA dental crown is a strong, natural-looking permanent tooth restoration that covers the top of the damaged tooth. They are available from The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte.

We use dental crowns to solve a number of dental dilemmas. They can remedy the following issues:

  • A fractured tooth with decay
  • An ill-fitting existing crown
  • A decayed tooth that has lost a considerable amount of tooth structure
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that causes a bite problem

Before your dentist can attach the crown to your tooth, we must prepare it. Dentists often administer a local anesthetic so you won’t feel pain during the prepping.

We will remove decay, if any, and shape the tooth to receive the crown. Then a mold is taken of the prepped tooth and surrounding teeth.

A temporary crown is then placed on the tooth to protect it until you return to receive the permanent restoration. The patient needs to be wary while wearing the temporary crown. Vigorous brushing or flossing can displace the crown or damage the exposed soft tissue. The patient should also refrain from eating extremely hard foods like nuts or sticky candy.

The mold of your teeth is sent to a dental lab where your crown is fabricated. Dental crowns are offered in three varieties: tooth-colored crowns made of resin or porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and solid metal crowns.

Each type has its pros and cons. Your dentist will choose the best suited crown material for your particular tooth.

What if you need a permanent dental restoration for both the top and root of your tooth? A dental implant is your answer.

For more details about dental crowns and other cosmetic dentistry solutions, call The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte for an appointment today.

Both Smoking And Vaping Put Your Smile At Risk

oral health risks of e-cigarettes Carlotte

A recent study on the impact of e-cigarettes on oral health has more bad news for those who believe vaping is less dangerous than regular cigarettes. In a study published in the journal Oncotarget, researchers determined that e-cigarettes may cause chronic inflammation and permanent cellular degeneration. These conditions, in turn, can result in periodontitis, oral cancer, and tooth loss.

E-cigarettes, as defined by the FDA, “are devices that allow users to inhale an aerosol containing nicotine or other substances.”

Before e-cigarettes emerged on the scene in 2005, the number of individuals who smoked traditional cigarettes had remained fairly steady. The unanticipated rise in popularity of e-cigarettes, however, has generated a substantial health risk, especially for the nation’s adolescents.

Between 2011 and 2015, the U.S. Surgeon General found e-cigarette use among high school students increased by 900 percent, with more teens now using e-cigarettes than cigarettes.

At The Steele Creek Dentist, we treat patients suffering from smoking-related oral health problems with expertise and compassion. We also strive to deliver reliable information about public health issues. Our services include pediatric dentistry, and general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

Keeping Kids’ Smiles Healthy

Carlotte Pediatric Dentistry

Your child’s dental health is vital to overall health and vitality. At The Steele Creek Dentist, our pediatric dentist loves working with you and your child to ensure a healthy smile for life. Why? The health of your child’s teeth and gums can affect their speech development, eating habits and self-esteem.

During the initial visit, we can discuss dental treatments such as sealants, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, and orthodontics.

Children’s dentists also counsel parents about thumb-sucking, pacifier use and other habits that impact your child’s dental health. We can also help you keep your child’s teeth protected during sporting activities. Call us immediately if your child has a dental emergency or tooth injury.

In addition to offering experienced pediatric dentistry, we are a full-service North Carolina dental practice. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry including family dentistry and kids dentistry.
