Common Questions

< Previous  1  2  3  4  5  Next >

1 . Does bleaching damage the teeth?
No. When carbamide peroxide, the active whitening agent, contacts water, hydrogen peroxide is released which whitens the teeth. Bleaching does not soften, demineralize or weaken the teeth.

2 . Do over-the-counter bleaching products work?
There is some evidence that over-the-counter bleaching products do whiten teeth, however the majority of patients are disappointed with the over counter bleach products. Supervision by your dentist is always the safest and most effective way to whiten your teeth.

3 . What are porcelain veneers and why are they used?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material which are bonded to the front of the teeth. This procedure can be an ideal choice for a brighter, younger, more beautiful smile.

4 . What causes my jaw to pop when I open it?
There is a pad or disk that separates the jaw bone from the base of the skull. The primary cause of the "popping" occurs when you open your mouth too wide and the jaw bone "pops" off the pad or disk. Treatment is not required unless pain is associated with the "pop" or the jaw locks.

5 . What causes tooth decay?
Tooth decay is caused by plaque in your mouth reacting with sugary and starchy deposits from food. This reaction produces acid which damages the enamel over time and weakens the tooth.

6 . What can be done for ulcers or canker sores in the mouth?
Ulcers are very difficult to treat. Our office provides treatments that can lessen the pain and speed recovery. Ulcers will generally diminish and disappear in 7-10 days.
