Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry

Cornwall Cosmetic Dentistry Hello, I’m Dr. Deneka Steven. Welcome to my Cornwall cosmetic dentistry blog. Today’s article focuses on the difference between general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.

General dentists are dedicated to preventing and treating oral disease such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, let’s say, a cavity between two teeth, a general dentist will assess the best way to restore the tooth involved.

Cornwall cosmetic dentists perform elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cornwall include teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.

Some Cornwall dentists, like myself, offer both general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. In some cases, there is a cosmetic component to restorative procedures. For example, if a Cornwall dental patient comes in after receiving an injury that chipped a front tooth, the tooth needs to be restored to prevent decay. The tooth is also less structurally sound, so it is vulnerable to further damage. In addition, the tooth affects the overall appearance of the smile. Depending on the specifics of the damage, there are several of restorative options. Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and crowns are all used to repair a damaged tooth.

As you can see, there is not always a definitive line between general and cosmetic dentistry. At Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, my family friendly team provides a full spectrum of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures. We treat Cornwall area patients of all ages: from toddlers just beginning to get their baby teeth to mature patients who remember the days when many people were afraid of dentists and their whiny drills. (Some of our wonderful elderly Cornwall patients have crowns that are twice as old as our hygienists.)

Experienced Cornwall dental professionals who perform pediatric, general, orthodontic, and cosmetic dental procedures can meet all of your family’s dental needs.

If you are looking for a full-service dental practice in the Cornwall area, I invite you to come into Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cornwall, We are located at 806 Pitt Street. To schedule an oral examination or smile makeover consultation, call 855-976-7250.

Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains

Cornwall Teeth Bleaching

If your smile could use some brightening, what are you waiting for? Professional teeth whitening and teeth bleaching are the easiest ways Ingleside residents can dramatically improve their appearance.

It is important to realize that not every smile responds the same to teeth bleaching. The degree of whiteness attained and the treatment time necessary depends on the type of stains being treated.

1. Surface or extrinsic stains are the most accessible and easiest to remove. They are caused by the usual suspects: coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the natural aging process.

2. Intrinsic stains can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. These stains form from the inside out but are visible through the enamel. They can be caused by trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or excessive fluoride use in childhood before the enamel is fully formed.

3. Combination: Some dental patients have both extrinsic and intrinsic staining. As we age, our teeth change – regardless of how well we take care of them. Two things that work against us is that our enamel thins while the dentin underneath fades and yellows. Again, the extrinsic stains on the enamel are the quickest to lighten, but ongoing treatment with a peroxide-based penetrating whitener can lighten the deeper discoloration.

It is best to trust fast teeth whitening treatment to the care of an experienced dentist such as Steven Deneka of Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cornwall. We have been brightening smiles since 1985. We also offer family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, 6-Month Smiles and fillings.

Upgrade your face value by brightening your smile!

Looking For A Red Carpet-Caliber Smile?

When you see pics of your favorite stars, do you ever wonder if you could look so flawless?

When it comes to remarkable smiles, the answer is a resounding “Yes!” Many cosmetic dentistry procedures produce significant results. Complete smile transformations combine various procedures to transform your teeth. We use the same procedures as the Hollywood A-list cosmetic dentists.

Teeth whitening brightens your smile effectively and affordably. Many drugstores sell over-the-counter whitening strips and gels. At Cornwall Dental Arts, we offer in-office teeth bleaching and can recommend good take-home teeth whitening kits. Coming in for an in-office procedure is the quickest way to whiten your teeth, sometimes in less than an hour.

If you suffer from missing teeth, most cosmetic dentists will recommend dental implants. A dental implant is placed directly in the jaw bone. This provides strength, natural appearance and function, and comfort. It can also guard against the bone recession that is common with a missing tooth.

Veneers, which are custom-made for each patient, are designed to cover the front of the teeth. These are useful for patients who have broken or chipped teeth, stained teeth, or gaps between teeth.

Bonding, enamel shaping, gum contouring, and braces are other important procedures that can be employed by your cosmetic dentist to help your teeth look their best.

I’m Dr. Steven Deneka of Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. If you are looking for first rate dental care in the Cornwall area, I hope you’ll give us a call at 855-976-7250. We offer family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and 6-Month Smiles.

Inlays/Onlays: Less Invasive Than Complete Crowns

cosmetic dental Cornwall

Restorative dentistry has come a long way over the years and there are now several effective ways to repair decayed teeth. In today’s post, we are going to focus on two similar types of restorations: dental inlays and onlays.

Where possible, an inlay or an onlay can be a less-invasive substitute for a complete crown and either one is usually more affordable than a porcelain crown procedure.

Inlays/onlays are “indirect fillings,” meaning that they are fabricated in a lab and placed whole on the tooth. A traditional “direct filling” is applied to the tooth while the material is malleable and then shaped by the dentist.

An inlay is used to repair the surface of a damaged tooth, ordinarily to fill a small cavity or a natural pit that is at risk for decay.

Typically porcelain or composite resin are used for inlays; these materials are durable and look very natural because the color can be matched precisely to the surrounding teeth. An inlay is exactly fitted to your tooth and looks, feels, and functions like the initial tooth.

An onlay covers a larger part of the tooth. Because they cover such a large area of the tooth, they are often referred to as partial crowns. Onlays are commonly applied to the biting surface of the tooth. Just like inlays, they are precisely fitted to the damaged part of the tooth. Composite resin and porcelain are also the main materials used to create an onlay. As mentioned before, inlays and onlays serve an important role in restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

At Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide quality dental care including inlays and onlays. If you have one or more teeth that has a cavity, crack, or excessive wear, call 855-976-7250 to make an appointment today.

How Long Will A Dental Crown Last?

cost of dental crowns Cornwall

Endodontists, oral surgeons, and general dentists use dental crowns (sometimes called caps) in many restorative treatments. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured, a crown can correct bite misalignments, and a crown is usually necessary after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.

Crowns are also used extensively for purely cosmetic problems: yellow teeth, stained teeth, too-small teeth, and teeth that are misshapen.

Dental crowns are fabricated from a variety of materials that vary in appearance and strength:

1. All ceramic (porcelain-based)
2. Porcelain fused to metal
3. Gold alloys
4. Base metal alloys

Your dentist can help you determine which type is right for you. Factors to consider are: the location of the crown in the mouth, your budget, and any allergies to metal.

When many dentists provide a crown restoration, they use a process that requires two office visits. On the first visit, the dentist will prepare the tooth and take an impression for the dental lab. Then, the dentist will make a temporary crown for the patient to use until the permanent crown is ready. Some dentists have special technology that allows them to fabricate and place crowns in one visit.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last? Dental crowns can last for many years, but are not designed to last indefinitely. Even with proper care, dental patients should not expect crowns to be trouble-free for decades. There is encouraging evidence, however, that points to a high success rate: a 2009 study found that more than 90% of dental crowns will not require treatment within five years of placement. The study also found that 50% to 80% last from 15 to 20 years.1

At Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cornwall, we provide quality restorative and cosmetic dentistry. In addition to dental crowns, we offer family dentistry, 6-Month Smiles, and cosmetic dentistry. Give us a call today!

Keep Holidays Healthy For Your Teeth!

Cornwall dental financing

Who doesn’t love the holidays? They’re a time to take a break from your regular routine and spend time with friends and family.

If you’re not careful, though, holiday celebrations can take a toll on your oral health. They typically involve delicious food, drinks, and sweets that can put you at risk for cavities and other issues.

As you navigate the holiday dessert tables, opt for something special that you don’t usually see during the rest of the year. This will help you to stay satisfied without overdoing the sugary stuff. Also, it’s helpful to have a glass of water with your dessert so you can take a drink after you finish and rinse some of the sugars from your teeth to safeguard your enamel.

Steer clear of hard candy that stays in your mouth for a long time, and be careful of extra-sticky candy that binds to your teeth. (Especially if you have a dental bridge, veneers, or braces!)

Don’t overlook your dental health routine when your schedule is busier than normal. Regardless of the season, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once per day (ideally, at night before going to bed).

Hello! I’m Dr. Steven Deneka. My practice, Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, is located at 806 Pitt Street in Cornwall. In addition to general dentistry, we offer procedures such as teeth whitening, smile makeovers and 6-Month Smiles. If you have any questions about this post or want information about our dental care, give us a call at 855-976-7250.

Aching Jaw?

Aching Jaw In Cornwall?

Hi. I’m Dr. Steven Deneka,and today in the Cornwall dentist blog, I want to look at some of the conditions that may result in jaw pain.

Jaw pain may be caused by sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses, and when these tissues are inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If the inflamed sinus is near the jaw, pain in the jaw joint may result. This commonly happens with a cold or allergies.
Many of my patients who come to me with jaw pain have some type of dental issue, such as an infection, or a problem in the temporomandibular joint (also known as TMJ).
The source of jaw pain can easily be identified at your dental office, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.

If you are looking for quality dental care, please consider Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. I have been serving the greater Cornwall area since 1985. If you have any questions about oral health or cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, or dental implants, give us a call today at 855-976-7250.
