Living with dull or discolored teeth and a less than bright smile is not unavoidable since modern dental teeth bleaching techniques can help bring back the natural whiteness that your teeth were born with. Highland Dental offers our patients teeth whitening that will whiten your teeth several shades in a minimum of treatments. Whitening treatments from our office are far superior to those home whitening kits or strips and pastes available at drug stores because of the quality and potency of professional dental products and the expert fit of the trays for the home whitening options developed by our doctor.

Our doctor offers teeth whitening either in our office or the convenience of in the patient’s own home. For those patients opting to whiten their teeth at home our doctor will begin by cleaning the teeth and taking an impression of their mouth, which is used to mold a set of custom fitted trays. At home the patient fills the trays with a special bleaching solution that is stronger than those available over the counter. The custom trays hold the solution snugly and uniformly against the teeth, which allows the solution to reach all the areas of each and every tooth. The patient will use the whitening trays for about two hours a day for a week or two depending on the degree of discoloration of the teeth.

Our practice also offers in-office teeth whitening. Our doctor applies a special whitening material to the patient’s teeth, which is activated by a special light. After about 15 minutes the solution is rinsed off and then the whitening material is reapplied and the procedure starts again and then often repeated a third time. At the end of both the in-office and home whitening procedures the patients teeth will be significantly whiter, usually several shades lighter. If you would like whiter teeth and a brighter smile call our office for an appointment with our doctor.

Gum disease affects many Americans each year. Preventing gum disease is the best way to ward off gingivitis and periodontitis along with other gum problems that can cause missing teeth. At Highland Dental we provide periodontal therapy in Smyrna for patients who have gum disease and need periodontal scalings or root planings, which is a deeper level of cleaning designed to rid the teeth pockets of bacteria.

Gum disease can happen when food and debris get trapped in between the teeth and gums, causing infection or inflammation. Mild gingivitis can be reversed with a proper brushing and flossing regimen and periodontal therapy in Smyrna until symptoms are reversed. If the pocket between the gum and tooth has filled with bacteria and plaque, it can irritate the surrounding gum tissue even more, causing gingivitis and periodontal disease. If the condition goes on for too long, it can cause damage to the bone and structure surrounding it, resulting in lost teeth, gum or bone. If the pockets of the gums have filled up with too much bacteria and are lower than 4mm, we recommend a deep cleaning and periodontal scaling or root planing.

A periodontal scaling and root planing is a deeper cleaning stage that allows our dentist to get deep into the pockets of the gums in order to remove the bacteria causing gum loss. Bacteria accumulates rapidly and must be cleaned and removed from the pockets, where they can cause extensive damage. The early stages of gingivitis can be reversed if no permanent damage has been done. Periodontal therapy in Smyrna can help reverse gum disease, along with good oral hygiene habits. Regular annual cleanings are also important to remove tooth debris and food from in between gums. Flossing and brushing can help remove bacteria from the teeth that cause plaque and tartar.

In other words, if you’re seeking dental implants in Smyrna, we’re your go-to for a brilliant, uniform smile! Dental implants are an excellent solution for patients suffering from tooth loss. They involve the placing of small metal structures in the patient’s jaw. These structures act as a firm foundation for replacement caps and crowns custom made to fit naturally and discreetly into your smile. These teeth are not only undetectable as replacements, but they’re just as functional and in fact often stronger than our patients’ original teeth. While not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants, they’re a fairly sought-after solution because of their ability to restore the appearance and functionality of a perfect set of teeth.

If you’re curious whether you could be a good candidate for dental implants in Smyrna, give us a call at Highland Dental. With our help, you can know your smile is in good hands!
