We all visit dentists so that we do not lose our teeth. It is recommended that you visit a dentist in Bayridge once in every six months. But what does a dentist do? We all know that a dentist cleans teeth, fills cavities, performs crowns, root canals, bridges and in extreme cases extracts a tooth or two (if you have not been taking care of them properly).
Many of us do not know that a dentist has a lot more to offer other than the things mentioned above. Here are some of the things that you can get from a Bayridge Dentist 11209.
Most of the other services that dentists offer have to do with dental cosmetics. If you happen to trip, fall and chip a tooth then you can go to a dentist to get the tooth filled. The dentist will fill the tooth gently so that it has an even surface.
Another thing a dentist does is teeth whitening. If you have a date, you are getting married or going for an important interview and want a brilliant white smile then you can either go to a dentist and get your teeth whitened or do it yourself at home. A dentist uses a variety of whitening bleaches and gels and light activators to achieve this. You can do the same at home with commercial teeth whitening gels, but the results are better and quicker if done at a dentist’s.
If your teeth are too weak for whitening, then you can opt for veneers. A tooth veneer is like a wrapping paper for your teeth. First the tooth is prepared. The tooth is filled, and then a mold of it is made for measurements. When the veneer is ready is it attached to the old tooth with a resin. This can be done for one tooth or all the teeth, depending on your need. This cosmetic procedure is done if teeth are discolored or chipped.
Repairs to teeth
Sometimes a tooth gets chipped or cracked, and this is repaired using a procedure known as bonding. During bonding, the tooth is repaired and then a resin that matches the color of the tooth is applied.
Remember the days when you had to wear braces to correct teeth? Well, those days are gone. Invisalign is the new way to get teeth straight without having to wear braces. These use clear resin pieces instead of metal braces that cannot be seen unless someone is looking into your mouth.
No matter which dentist you choose, ensure that they are certified to carry out the procedures that you wish to get done.
