Discover the benefits of getting dental crowns and bridges for your smile.

Accidents happen! Yes, even to your smile. Whether you are dealing with extensive decay, or a cracked or broken tooth, Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler at Dental Choice in Easton, MD, are here to tell you how getting dental crowns and bridges could turn your smile around.

What are crowns and bridges?

These fixed dental restorations are custom-made just for you. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to improve its function and appearance while a dental bridge is used to fill gaps and replace one or more missing teeth.

Why might I get a crown?

A crown is a very versatile restoration that can be used to protect a tooth from further damage. A tooth weakened by decay, infection, or trauma can often benefit from getting a crown. A crown will surround the tooth and provide a stronger and more durable outer layer of protection.

A crown may be recommended if you have a cracked, fractured, or broken tooth, if you have a tooth that is badly misshapen or discolored, or if you just underwent root canal therapy.

When are dental bridges needed?

A dental bridge is a fixed oral prosthetic that is designed to replace a single missing tooth or a few missing teeth in a row. A bridge uses two dental crowns, which are placed over healthy teeth on both sides of the gap. The bridge, which contains false teeth, will be fused with the crowns to anchor the artificial teeth in the middle.

Dental crowns and bridges offer an array of benefits, from treating tooth loss and filling gaps left behind by missing teeth, to protecting teeth from further damage and improving the aesthetics of your smile. 

Do you want to know more about dental crowns, bridges, and other restorative dentistry options we offer? If so, all you have to do is call Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler at Dental Choice in Easton, MD. You can reach our office at 410-822-4310.

Don't hide your smile, improve it! Cosmetic dentistry in Easton, MD, can help give you the confidence to smile again. Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler of Dental Choice offer a variety of cosmetic treatments for all your dental needs.

Teeth Whitening

The first thing that most people who want to improve their smile think about is teeth whitening. Regular brushing keeps your teeth healthy, but for a truly bright white smile, you should consider professional whitening. In-office whitening only takes an hour and brightens your smile by up to eight shades.

Bonding

If you have chipped or cracked teeth your dentist may recommend this treatment. Using a dental bonding material, your dentist will fill and reshape your damaged teeth. 

Dental Veneers

Veneers are another alternative to enhance your smile, provided by your cosmetic dentist in Easton, MD. They are thin shells that cover the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections and give you a perfect smile.

Dental Implants

If you have one or more teeth that can't be repaired with bonding or veneers or have a gap in your smile, dental implants are an excellent option because they can replace one or more teeth. Titanium posts are affixed to the patient's jaw and it is on these that the replacement crown is bonded, making for a very long-lasting addition to your smile.

Your dentist can find the best combination of cosmetic treatments specifically for you.

Don't Delay

Regular teeth cleanings from your family dentists in Easton, MD, can save your smile.

Do you need to get your teeth cleaned? If you can’t remember when you last visited your dentist for professional teeth cleaning, then it’s probably been too long. You should have your teeth cleaned every 6 months if you have a mouth that is generally healthy. If you are showing symptoms of gum disease, you should have your teeth cleaned every 3 to 4 months, or as your dentist recommends.

Your Easton, MD, family dentists, Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler of Dental Choice, offer a wide range of preventive and family dentistry services, including teeth cleanings to save your smile.

Why do you need regular dental cleanings?

  • Cleanings lower bacteria levels in your mouth which helps prevent gum and periodontal disease
  • Cleanings remove hard deposits like calculus or tartar and soft deposits like plaque to help prevent gum and periodontal disease
  • Cleanings are a great time for you to find out about all of the newest tips and tricks to help prevent gum and periodontal disease at home

Gum disease can be reversed, but only with diligent, frequent brushing and flossing, and visits to your dentist for professional teeth cleaning. If you let gum disease remain untreated, it can progress to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the number one reason why adults lose teeth. Once you have lost your teeth to periodontal disease, you will need to consider tooth replacement options.

When it comes to keeping your mouth healthy, it’s all about plaque removal. That’s because plaque contains millions of microscopic bacteria that destroy the health of your teeth and gums. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent this by removing deposits on your teeth and lowering bacteria levels.

Protect your beautiful smile with regular professional dental cleanings from your Easton, MD, family dentists. To discover more about professional teeth cleanings and how they can help your smile, call Dr. Phillips and Dr. Dressler of Dental Choice at (410) 822-4310 today!

How porcelain veneers from your dentists in Easton, MD, can enhance your smile

Does your smile need a little renewal? If so, you have a lot of company, and that’s why cosmetic dentistry is such a fast-growing service. One of the most popular ways to renew your smile is with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can cover up a wide variety of minor and major flaws with your teeth and smile.

Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler of Dental Choice in Easton, MD, offer a wide variety of family and cosmetic dentistry, including porcelain veneers, to enhance your smile.

So, what’s so special about porcelain veneers? It turns out veneer treatment is conservative because your dentist removes little to no tooth structure. Veneers are beautiful laminates that fit right over the front of your existing teeth, and porcelain offers some amazing benefits like these:

  • It’s light-reflective, just like natural tooth enamel
  • It looks just like a natural tooth structure
  • It’s stain-resistant, giving you years of sparkling beauty

Porcelain veneers hide a wide variety of dental issues, including:

  • Small or large cracks and fracture lines
  • Small or large chips or other damage
  • Excessive tooth wear and abrasion
  • Blotches and stains from medications, smoking, or coffee

Porcelain veneers can also help cosmetically hide some alignment and tooth positioning issues, including:

  • Closing small gaps or uneven spacing between teeth
  • Making rotated, twisted teeth appear straighter
  • Minimizing the appearance of tooth overlap

Porcelain veneers typically require between 2 and 3 appointments, including a consultation appointment. Your dentist may even be able to give you a sneak peek of what your veneers will look like before you begin treatment.

Thanks to porcelain veneers, it’s never been easier to renew and remake your smile and get the perfect smile you want and deserve.

To learn more about the magic of porcelain veneers and how they can enhance your smile, call Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler of Dental Choice in Easton, MD, at (410) 822-4310. Call today!
