Let’s Take Care Of Those Tooth Stains

Dallas Teeth Bleaching

The effectiveness of teeth whitening at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas depends in part on the types of stains you have.

There are two types of tooth stains:

  • Extrinsic stains are the simplest to remove. These are surface stains that have not penetrated through the enamel. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. Tobacco is also a notorious staining agent.
  • Intrinsic stains are within a tooth. Injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove entirely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional teeth whitening. They can also be covered with porcelain veneers.

Professional teeth whitening at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas can take years off your appearance. We’ve whitened the smiles of patients throughout Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood, who come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures.

A beautiful and healthy smile can be your best physical attribute. After all, your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we use cosmetic dentistry to help our patients get fabulous smiles.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you look at your smile in the mirror and think it’s unattractive, it doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks. But what if you are not sure?

There are many flaws that can detract from a great smile. Missing teeth is a biggie. Dental implants are a lifelike, fully functional solution to one or more missing teeth, including molars.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile, even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned. Crooked teeth, too, are often considered unattractive.

People from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood have trusted us to improve their smiles. We also offer general dentistry. Call for an appointment with us today!

Sleep Dentistry At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry

Dental appointments are stressful for some people. For some it can get so bad that they avoid the dentist altogether – not a good idea, since it puts their dental health at risk. At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we provide sedation dentistry, so those who need extra help can get the dental care they need.

Sedation dentistry is a way to help patients relax during dental visits. You may hear the term “sleep dentistry” sometimes, but that isn’t really accurate, because most types will not make you sleep.

We offer two kinds of sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry with great success for more than a hundred years. It acts quickly, wears off quickly, and is very effective. You may know it by the term, “laughing gas.”
  • IV sedation is much stronger, and is administered through the arm. You will need someone to drive you to and from our office.

Don’t put your dental health at risk! Sedation dentistry from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas is a solution to anxiety. People from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood trust us with their dental health. We offer complete restorative dentistry, and much more. Schedule an appointment today!

Dental Implants: Too Good To Be True?

dental implants DallasDental implants from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas can be used to replace one or several teeth, or even anchor a set of dentures. They look and function like natural teeth. Does that sound too good to be true?

You’ve probably heard some dental implant hype.

  • Bite and chew like normal!
  • Implant-supported dentures don’t slip around!
  • Dental implants are superior to dental bridges!

Those are bold claims. However, people with dental implants understand that they aren’t exaggerations.

A dental implant is the strongest natural-looking restoration for a missing tooth. It looks and functions like a natural tooth.

Let’s discuss two lesser-known reasons that dental implants are the best tooth restoration option. These issues don’t receive as much attention, but they should.

Why Are Dental Implants Revolutionary?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. After a month or two, it fuses with the bone.

The post becomes a stable base for the visible restoration (abutment) above the gumline. An artificial tooth is mounted onto the abutment.

When a tooth is extracted, blood circulation in the bone is decreased because of the missing root. This can lead to bone recession. Dental implants can prevent this from happening.

If you are missing teeth, we invite you to call us at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas to find out about dental implants. They are not too good to be true! People from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood also come to us for a full range of general dentistry services. Call today!

10 Terrific Tooth Tips

cost of dental crowns North Dallas

In addition to cleanings and checkups, Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas likes to share useful information to help you stay on top of your dental health. So without further introduction, here are some terrific tooth tips:

  1. If you have kids and your municipal water supply does not have the recommended level of fluoride, talk to your pediatrician about fluoride supplements. Fluoride strengthens both the teeth you can see and the ones still forming in the jaw.
  2. Set a timer when you brush to make sure you spend at least two minutes thoroughly (but gently!) cleaning all surfaces. Don’t forget your tongue – it provides a cozy home for bacteria.
  3. Floss before you brush so that tooth bristles can better reach between teeth.
  4. If you can’t brush after a meal, chew some sugarless gum with xylitol. Xylitol may curb the growth of bacteria on your teeth to reduce plaque formation.
  5. Eat carbohydrates with meals instead of alone as snacks. More saliva is generated while eating a meal and this can lessen the effects of carbs sitting on your teeth.
  6. An oral fluoride rinse used right before bedtime adds an extra measure of decay deterrence. Fluoride rinses (not traditional mouthwash) work best when swished over teeth for at least thirty seconds after flossing and brushing. After spitting it out, don’t rinse with water.
  7. Let the residue protect and strengthen your enamel all night long. This is especially important for kids – just make sure they don’t swallow it.
  8. If you have diabetes, it is important to understand that unhealthy blood sugar levels can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. We can help you maintain oral health in spite of your condition.
  9. Beware of the dental risks of chronic dry mouth (xerostomia). Continual saliva production is essential for keeping the mouth lubricated, washing the food from tooth surfaces, and neutralizing the acid caused by plaque. Decongestants, blood pressure medications, antidepressants, and painkillers are some of the medications that can cause dry mouth.
  10. Wearing a mouthguard when you participate in sports can prevent tooth injury.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we want all our patients to take good care of their teeth. Brush and floss daily, and see us for a checkup every six months. Services include general and restorative dentistry. Patients from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood trust us with their dental health. Schedule your next exam today!

6 Reasons To Ditch Your Dentures For Dental Implants

Implant dentures Dallas

Dentures that rest on the gums have a long history in dentistry. But a change is taking place, and these traditional dentures are no longer the only option. At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we offer state-of-the-art, implant-supported dentures.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into your jaw. Within a few months the post has fused with the bone. This forms a rock-solid foundation for a replacement tooth.

One implant can support one artificial tooth. Multiple implants can support a dental bridge, or full dental arch.

Dental implants provide the following benefits:

  • Stability. Implants don’t move around in your mouth.
  • Form and Function. Implants look and function like natural teeth.
  • Like a New Root. Dental implants mimic a natural tooth root, promoting healthy bone.
  • Bone Retention. The implant prevents bone recession and stimulates blood circulation.
  • Comfort. No gum irritation.
  • Appearance. Get your smile back!

Before you can get a dental implant, we must make sure you’ve got enough healthy bone to support it. Even if you have lost bone mass due to recession, though, a bone graft can stimulate new bone growth. In a matter of months you should have enough bone mass in the jaw to support the implants.

Implant-supported dentures from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas can change your life. We have placed them in patients from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood, who also come to us for complete general dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
