We all want the smile of our dreams – a smile that lights up every room we walk into. But for many of us, it doesn’t come naturally. We need the help of trained dental professionals to produce the smile we’ve always wanted. The following is Dr. Hamlett and Dr. Rosenthal will take us through those steps:
The single most important factor in creating a beautiful smile is the ability to visualize the final result before you begin. Laboratory communication, including photographs and models of the approved temporaries, is key to success. A thorough lab prescription detailing shade, texture, central length, incisal translucency, and any other pertinent information helps to facilitate a predictable result. To develop properly proportioned teeth, it is essential to properly address many characteristics, such as contours, shade, size and length of centrals, phonetics, and occlusion. This leads to a key artistic technique—the art of recontouring—with both temporaries and, if necessary, the final restorations.

It’s nothing new – we all know that smoking is bad for you. And while there are lots of ways to quit smoking on the market, many still haven’t made the choice to quit. But this goes beyond lung conditions and cancer risks, smoking is also affecting our smiles and dentists have a hard time advising their patients on the dangers of smoking. In order to help sway the masses, let’s take a look at what can happen if you continue to smoke or use tobacco products.
A new study has indicated that there is a reason why smokers
suffer higher rates of oral diseases. It has been discovered that in smokers,
good bacteria are essentially ejected by pathogens created by smoking. Believe
it or not, but our mouths are the frontline when it comes to keeping diseases
at bay. These good bacteria in our mouth work by keeping bad bacteria that
causes infections and diseases (pathogens) away. In nonsmokers, good bacteria will
repopulate the mouth shortly after cleaning and acts a shield to protect your
mouth from disease. In smokers, good bacteria will not resurface and instead
the mouth gets colonized by pathogens (bad bacteria). And it is these pathogens
that will cause infections and diseases will rapidly develop. If you see these
symptoms or find that your mouth is changing for the worse, we advise to talk
to your dental professional about seeking treatment. Prevention is the best
medicine and can keep your smile healthy and radiant.
