Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile
Many so-called Dayton cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Clayton dental procedures such as tooth replacement prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss, and difficulty chewing and speaking.
Myth #2: A 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 critical advantages for Vandalia 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 Tooth Whitening as a Professional Dental Solution
At Vitangeli, we offer our Dayton dental patients teeth whitening treatments that are frequently 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 it may not always be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Call us at 937-836-3565 to set up an appointment to discuss veneers.
Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth
Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our Dayton teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, porcelain veneers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a unforgettable smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer rapid results!
