Yes. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out any applicable patient forms.
How often you need to visit the dentist will largely depend on your oral health and hygiene routines. It is recommended to visit the dentist at least once every 6 months. This increases the chances of catching any problems early on, allowing for a smooth and effective treatment plan.
The best way to improve the whiteness of your teeth is to first identify the cause of discoloration. Stains that are caused by coffee, wine, tobacco and other foods can be treated with take home whitening kits. For internal discoloration, composite bonding or veneers are an alternative solution.
Bleeding in the gums during flossing or brushing can often be an early sign of gum disease. The plaque and tartar can build up causing the gums to become inflamed or infected. If untreated this can become a severe condition, and can lead to receding gums and tooth loss. If you have any dental concerns please feel free to call our office.
