The Nevins cosmetic dentist
Here at Londonderry Family Dentistry, we combine practicality with aesthetic value when it comes to restorations. With fillings, crowns, bridges, and veneers, you can have a more attractive smile that is also strong and that promotes optimal oral well-being.
Our The Nevins cosmetic dentist is pleased to offer tooth-colored filling materials that make treated cavities virtually undetectable. Of course, you need fillings so that your cavities will not grow and put you at increased risk of toothaches, infections, or the loss of the tooth entirely. It helps, though, when your filling blends in seamlessly with your tooth. The same is true of crowns, which are useful in a variety of applications, including strengthening teeth that have been weakened by tooth decay, covering chips and cracks, or improving the appearance of a tooth that is imperfect looking, such as when one is crooked, misshapen, or discolored. Porcelain and ceramic are both used for crowns on those teeth that show when you smile or speak. What about when you are missing one or even several teeth? In addition to your other teeth being prone to shifting, which can cause discomfort and throw your jaws out of sync, it is easy to feel self-conscious about that empty space used to be. Why not get a fixed or removable bridge from our The Nevins cosmetic dentist to get back a complete set of teeth? And porcelain veneers serve a specific role in the enhancement of your smile. They are thin shells that are put over those teeth that don’t have an optimal appearance.
In every way possible, our The Nevins cosmetic dentist is 100% dedicated to utilizing the methods that are vital for giving you a full smile of whole, strong, attractive teeth. Now is the perfect time to contact our office and schedule your appointment.
We’re focused on prevention here at Londonderry Family Dentistry. It’s the most effective method for promoting optimal oral health. And our dental checkups every six months is a big part of the strategy for keeping tooth decay and gum disease from causing serious damage.
Of course, your efforts at home are every bit as important in prevention. Eating a nutritious diet limited in sugar, brushing after meals, and flossing vigorously every day are all excellent ways to keep plaque from leading to problems. But since not all plaque is removed through home oral hygiene, and what remains hardens into tartar, which cannot be eliminated by brushing and flossing. Our dental checkups twice per year have two main purposes: first, the detection of any cavities while they are still small, so that they can be filled promptly by our Merrimack dentist. The larger a cavity gets, the more it puts you at risk for a bacterial infection getting inside the tooth and causing pain that will most likely be treated with root canal therapy. Second, a teeth cleaning will eradicate all of the plaque and tartar you have, giving you a brand new start on oral wellness. Your gums are also affected by plaque and tartar. Initially, they may become reddened or irritated, signs of gingivitis, the early stage. A teeth cleaning will usually stop gingivitis and reverse its effects so that it won’t progress to the advanced stage of periodontitis. Our Merrimack dentist will also analyze your occlusion (bite) and screen you for oral cancer as part of our dental checkups. X-rays are taken periodically, as a key way to detect cavities.
If maintaining strong teeth and healthy, vibrant gums is a priority for you, it’s a good idea to call us and schedule your six month visit with our Merrimack dentist.
