Common Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

Common Myths about Sacramento Family Cosmetic Dentistry Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many so-called Sacramento cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Carmichael dental procedures such as tooth replacement prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Fair Oaks Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many vital advantages for Elk Grove dental patients. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Tooth implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Fair Oaks Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Arden Dental Care – Michael S. Boyce DDS, we offer our Sacramento dental patients teeth whitening treatments that are commonly more effective than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide optimum results and can often lead to uneven coloring.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Call us at 916-481-2001 to set up an appointment to discuss veneers.

Myth #5: Carmichael Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our Sacramento teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a dazzling smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer rapid results!
