The Wow Factor

March 22, 2019

sleep dentistry North Dallas

At The Richardson Dentist, we continue to achieve fantastic results with our cosmetic dentistry smile makeovers. If the term “cosmetic dentistry” is unfamiliar to you, it’s a type of dental care that focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth and teeth, and how they come together in your smile.

There are a number of common cosmetic dentistry procedures available. The most popular are teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Clear braces have generated a lot of interest, too.

Teeth whitening at The Richardson Dentist can transform your smile in ways that far surpass any whitening product you’ll find at the grocery store. We use Zoom! and Ultradent in-office whitening systems. We also offer a highly effective take-home kit that you can do in the privacy and convenience of home.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade porcelain that are affixed to the front of your teeth. They are great for covering chips and cracks that detract from your smile.

Clear braces from Invisalign can straighten your teeth without the bother of metal brackets. They’re worn like an athlete’s mouth guard, and are so subtle that people standing just a few feet away might not realize you’re wearing them. Best of all, they can be removed at mealtime and when you brush your teeth.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, our cosmetic dentistry will leave you saying “Wow!” We also offer a wide range of general dentistry services. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today.

Positive Changes With a Smile Makeover

March 8, 2019

At The Richardson Dentist we use cosmetic dentistry every day to create fabulous new smiles for our patients. We call this a “smile makeover.” What exactly does it entail?

A smile makeover means using the techniques of cosmetic dentistry to make positive changes to your smile. These techniques might include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Bonding
  • Gum contouring
  • Dental implants
  • Clear braces

A beautiful smile is the sum of its parts. With the patient’s input, we do a smile analysis to evaluate his or her smile. Our goal is to bring the teeth, skeletal structures, and muscles into harmony. It’s a complicated endeavor, requiring an understanding of how all of these components relate to one another.

Any one of the the techniques listed above will go a long way toward transforming your smile. Two or more can leave you with the smile of your dreams.

To find out what cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile, call us at The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX. Other services include adult orthodontics. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Super Smiles Have Strong Enamel

March 1, 2019

Richardson dental financing

Did you know that enamel is the hardest substance in the body? It’s true! This substance, found on the outer surface of your teeth, should last a lifetime. But The Richardson Dentist reminds you that just because it’s super tough doesn’t mean you don’t have to work to take care of it.

Here are some beneficial tips for keeping enamel healthy.

1. Pick the right foods for enamel health. It’s no secret that soft drinks hurt your teeth, and don’t think that diet sodas are harmless – the artificial sweeteners can also erode enamel over time. There are also other culinary culprits that can do a lot of harm. Sticky, chewy candies should be avoided. Chewing ice is a no-no. And don’t use your teeth as tools. Take a minute to grab some scissors before you rip open that package with your incisors.

On the flip side, foods with calcium can neutralize acid in your mouth and guard your enamel. So, enjoy your dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt!

2. Avoid vigorous brushing and use a soft brush. Also, it’s best to brush about an hour after eating, because foods, especially acidic ones, can soften the enamel, thus making it more prone to damage from brushing. If your teeth are discolored or yellowish, you may feel you need to brush harder.

3. Keep stomach acids in check. If you have a problem with severe heartburn, the stomach acid could be traveling up your esophagus and into your mouth. This acid can erode enamel, so it is important to talk to your Richardson doctor about treatment.

4. Talk to us about dry mouth and tooth grinding. Lack of saliva is a major problem for tooth enamel, and it’s no surprise that teeth grinding can also wear it down. Make sure your dentist is aware if you observe either of these issues.

At The Richardson Dentist, we want all our patients to maintain excellent dental health. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.

6 Reasons To Ditch Your Dentures For Dental Implants

February 22, 2019

Implant dentures Richardson

For thousands of years, dentures have been allowing people to chew foods harder than mashed bananas and flash some teeth when they smile. But they can be inconvenient, to say the least. The Richardson Dentisty has a better option with dental implants.

A dental implant provides the total package, so to speak. A single implant can support an artificial tooth, while several can support a set of dentures.

The implant procedure goes like this: A super-strong titanium post is anchored directly into the jawbone. In the case of a single implant, an abutment is attached to the post. A crown is attached to the abutment. For denture implants, multiple implants, usually at least four, provide anchors for the dentures.

Dental implants provide the following benefits:

Stability – Implants don’t move around in your mouth.  This permits normal chewing, swallowing, and speech.
Bone Retention – The post prevents the bone loss that almost always occurs after a tooth is extracted
Dental implants prevent jaw muscle dysfunction that can occur when remaining teeth are forced to compensate for missing teeth
Implants eliminate gum irritation
No need for denture relines
No denture adhesive needed (Remember, they are anchored in your jawbone just like natural teeth!)

Dental implant patients with one or two missing teeth can replace each missing tooth with a permanent implant. Dental patients with significant tooth loss are usually best served with an implant-anchored denture.

To find out more, call The Richardson Dentist. In addition to dental implants we offer adult orthodontics and many other services. Schedule an appointment today.

Using Nature As Our Guide

February 15, 2019

smile design Richardson

At The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX, we perform smile re-designs that turn ordinary teeth (or even teeth with problems) into beautiful smiles. If you have been considering a smile makeover, you probably want to confirm if you will still look like yourself.

The answer is “Yes! Only better!” You see, we use nature as a guide—nature at its best—when improving smiles. It is vital to bring multiple components into harmony when designing a smile makeover. Here are a few:

  • Tooth Shape – includes proportion and alignment
  • Tooth Size – this also includes the unique dimensions of the spaces between the teeth
  • Tooth Color – hue, value, intensity, and color variations between teeth
  • Tooth Bite – how upper and lower teeth fit together
  • Gumline – shape and color
  • Face Shape and Bone Structure
  • Skin Tone
  • Lips – color, shape, size
  • Age
  • Gender

This list is not comprehensive but gives you an idea of the complexity of smile makeovers. Though advanced cosmetic dentistry is multifaceted, it follows the esthetic principles expressed in naturally beautiful smiles.

But you don’t have to worry about midlines and microesthetics because we are devoted to the details. We invite you to schedule a  consultation to talk with The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX about your current smile, and the beautiful smile you desire. Services include cosmetic and general dentistry. Call our office today!

Dental Sealant Q & A

February 8, 2019

dental sealants RichardsonAt The Richardson Dentist, the dental health of each of our patients is always our top priority. And preventing cavities is one of our biggest concerns. Dental sealants are an excellent way to protect the teeth from decay.

Q. What are dental sealants?
A. Dental sealants are permanent plastic barriers applied to the biting surfaces of teeth, especially the molars. They prevent cavities by filling in the grooves and fissures where food particles are particularly difficult to remove.

A. Do sealants significantly reduce tooth decay?
Q. Yes. Studies show that dental sealants can cut down the risk of decay by up to 70%!

Q. How are dental sealants applied to the teeth?
A. We apply the sealant resin as a liquid which quickly hardens and adheres tightly to pits and grooves. The procedure is quick, straightforward and completely painless.

Q. Which teeth can benefit the most from sealants?
A. Sealants are most commonly applied to the first and second molars because they are at the highest risk for decay.

Q. When should sealants be applied?
A. The best time is early – while the teeth are cavity-free.

Q. Does that mean sealants are just for kids?
A. Not necessarily. Talk to us about whether sealants could benefit you.

Q. Is brushing and flossing still necessary for the teeth with sealants?
A. Yes. Vigilant oral hygiene is still critical to keep teeth and gums healthy. Even the teeth with sealants are at risk for decay along the gumline. Think of sealants as an extra layer of protection.

At The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX, keeping your teeth an gums healthy is our number one concern. We offer a wide range of services, including general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

The Health And Beauty Consequences Of Missing Teeth

February 1, 2019

Plano tooth implants

Our teeth have many important functions. We need them to chew our food, talk, and smile. But have you ever considered their role in holding up your face? When we lose teeth, the bone around the site of the extraction begins to shrink. This, in turn, causes our facial muscles to sink in and collapse. Dental implants from The Richardson Dentist can help.

Bone Metabolism

We sometimes think of bone as a solid mass, unlike the softer tissues in our body. In reality, below the seemingly rock-hard surface, bone tissue is full of small holes – kind of like a sponge. In the interior bone tissue, the bone is continually regenerating itself. This essential process is sometimes called “bone metabolism.” In the jaw bone, the movement of the teeth stimulate this process of rebuilding. When the tooth is gone, the bone starts to shrink as blood flow is reduced.

People with missing teeth not only have an unsightly gap in their smile, they begin to look older because of the bone recession and eventual facial sagging.  It is not simply an issue of attractiveness – it poses serious health dangers. It may become difficult to chew food, making it harder to get adequate nutrition. Mental health can also be affected when a patient with missing teeth loses confidence in themself or withdraws from social situations because they are self-conscious about their smile.

Dental Implants Can Prevent Bone Recession

Dental implants are titanium posts inserted into the jaw. A single implant can support an artificial tooth, and several implants can support a set of dentures. The titanium post acts as a replacement tooth root, and prevent bone recession.

What if your bone has shrunken so much that there is not enough to support an implant? You may be a candidate for bone augmentation or bone grafting. This procedure is routinely carried out with success.

Dental implants are one of the great advances in dentistry, and they are available at The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX. We also offer adult orthodontics and other services. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Persistent Dry Mouth?

January 18, 2019

The Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry-Kerry M. Goad, DDS Guide To Dry Mouth

Many residents in our Richardson community experience dry mouth occasionally. Some develop dry mouth in social situations or when they are under a lot of stress. Sporadic or infrequent dry mouth is usually not a serious issue. Constant dry mouth, or xerostomia, is not only irritating, it can lead to extreme health problems. If you experience it, talk to us at The Richardson Dentist.

Your saliva plays a critical role in maintaining your health. One of its roles is to help digest your food. The moment food enters your mouth, saliva starts breaking it down so your body can metabolize it. If you don’t produce enough saliva to complete this task your body may not be getting important nutrients needed to stay healthy.

Saliva also functions as a disinfectant by cleansing the mouth of leftover food, bacteria, and fungi. This helps prevent tooth decay and infections. Many Richardson residents don’t realize that some of the foods we eat are very acidic, and our saliva helps to counteract those acids in our mouths.

One of the things we recommend is cutting back on caffeine, which is in drinks like cola, coffee, and tea. Not only do these beverages stain and discolor your teeth, the caffeine can contribute to dry mouth. We also recommend drinking plenty of water throughout the day to make sure you are adequately hydrated.

Tobacco and alcohol can also contribute to dry mouth. Consult your physician if you are taking medication that is causing your dry mouth.

The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX can address every aspect of your dental health, not just your teeth! Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today.
