VeneersImprove your smile and your overall appearance by opting for dental veneer in Alpharetta, GA.

Is your smile aging you? You might be surprised to find out that those dental problems you are dealing with could be causing you to appear older than you actually are. No one wants this to happen to them; however, find out how getting veneers from your Alpharetta, GA dentist could change all that.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells made out of porcelain that are placed over the front of your teeth. The translucency of the veneers offers a realistic appearance that mirrors that of natural teeth.

How will getting dental veneers in Alpharetta, GA make me look younger?

If you are dealing with dental issues such as stains, chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, crooked or misshapen teeth, or overcrowding then chances are pretty good that your smile is aging you. When your smile doesn’t look its best it tends to affect your overall appearance (not to mention your confidence, too!). However, dental veneers can easily hide these flaws and transform your smile into something brighter and straighter than you thought possible.

Furthermore, your dental veneers are stain-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about them staining like your natural teeth. This is a major advantage of opting for dental veneers.

What should I expect when I get dental veneers?

The first step to getting dental veneers includes minor tooth preparation. To prepare your teeth for veneers your Alpharetta, GA dentist will remove some enamel first. This will ensure that your new smile isn’t bulky or cumbersome. However, this is non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia.

Once this is complete, we will choose a set of veneers that offer you a vibrant but realistic smile. Then we will apply special resin between your teeth and your veneers and then use a laser to harden the resin. After this, you can enjoy a completely new smile.

If you are ready to regain your youth with a beautiful smile then it’s time to schedule an appointment with your Alpharetta, GA dentist, Dr. Priti Bloor at Bloor Family Dentistry.

Of all of the procedures to visit a dentist for, root canals are typically the most feared. What most people don't realize, however, is that these fears are usually based on myths - not on facts. At Bloor Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA, we think it's time to set the record straight! Here are the truths behind five incredibly common root canal myths.Root Canal

Myth #1: Root Canals are Painful

Root canals alleviate pain - they don't cause it. When you visit your dentist at Bloor Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA for a root canal, you will receive an anesthetic, making a root canal no more painful than getting a filling. Once the procedure is done and your mouth has healed, you should feel much better, not worse!

Myth #2: Root Canals Are Only Necessary When There's Pain

A painful tooth isn't the only symptom that a root canal is necessary. Root canals treat infection in a dead or dying tooth. While infections can cause pain, they don't always. A dentist can let you know for sure if a root canal is right for you.

Myth #3: Root Canals Cause Illness

This myth stems from faulty research that is over 100 years old, and that dentists have never been able to confirm or replicate. Modern medicine is also significantly more hygenic than medicine 100 years ago!

Myth #4: Root Canals Require Several Office Visits

While the amount of time for a root canal procedure varies based on the severity of tooth damage and the number of teeth that are affected, root canals are generally completed in only one or two office visits. You may need to make additional visits to be fitted for a new crown if your old tooth must be replaced, but the root canal process itself is not extensive.

Myth #5: Extractions are a Better Option

While extractions may be necessary in cases of extreme damage, for many Alpharetta, GA residents, having a dentist perform a root canal to restore their own tooth is sufficient. False teeth are very reliable, durable and lifelike these days, but most dentists agree that there is no substitute for keeping your own teeth if at all possible.

Now that you know the facts, it is time to take action. Call Bloor Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA and set up an appointment to see your dentist today!
