Did you know that most people don’t even know if they have bad breath? Do you know for sure?
Dentists and doctors call bad breath halitosis. In most cases, the offensive smell comes from bacterial waste products. That’s right! In your mouth live over 600 types of bacteria, some good and some bad. Some of the bacteria produce sulfur compounds that are, to be frank, very stinky!
If you need a crown, your tooth has sustained damage that can’t be repaired with a filling. You might have a deep cavity, crack, or chip. Your tooth could be worn down, which will, over time, negatively alter your bite. Or, you may need a crown following a root canal. Depending upon the amount of tooth structure that needs restoration, Dr. Villani may recommend a full crown or a ¾ crown, which we call inlays or onlays.
What does a smile makeover entail? It depends entirely on your unique needs and preferences. Schedule a consultation with me, Dr. Villani, or my associate, Dr. Kondrat. We’ll sit down and discuss your ideal smile, and we can talk about which procedures would achieve the results you want. Most commonly we suggest, custom porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding or recontouring, and white fillings and crowns. But rest assured, your treatment plan will be designed exclusively for you. There is no packaged solution in cosmetic dentistry. We aim to preserve your unique appearance, while giving you a more attractive overall image.
We have all heard about the dreaded root canal. It’s true: root canals have a bad reputation. I am Dr. Thomas Villani and I am here to tell you that root canals aren’t as bad as they sound. My associate at Brighton Family Dental Group, Dr. Richard Kondrat, and I happy to answer questions to put your mind at rest before and during your root canal procedure.
