The success rate for porcelain veneers is 97% for a 15 year period. That means that during a one-hundred year period, after 15 years 3 of the veneers will be damaged and have been replaced while the other 97 will still be functioning acceptably.

Veneers are made of a very strong porcelain and allow people to eat a normal diet. You do not have to be careful about biting into food such as apples, or steak. You should not do anything with your veneers that you would not do with your natural teeth, i.e. using your teeth to open plastic bags or other items. None of that should be done with your teeth or your veneers.

That is why we stress fluoride treatments. Fluoride, diet, flossing and brushing can help protect a tooth against decay.

You often do not have pain. In some cases you do not know anything is wrong until you lose a lot of bone and teeth loosen. We check regularly for this by measuring your periodontal pockets and act quickly if there are any signs of infection.

At any time a cyst is around un-erupted wisdom teeth can grow or change in character. That is one more reason panorex x-rays are important. They check for any changes we cannot visibly see.

Unless a dentist or hygienist is measuring the periodontal pocket around your teeth this bone infection can go undetected. We have an outstanding periodontal program in our hygiene department which utilizes laser and antibiotic therapy to treat periodontal disease.

Sealants are a plastic-like coating that are applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth to help to prevent the most prone area of the tooth from decay.

It is a proven fact that periodontal disease is linked to many health issues such as heart problems, diabetes, and low weight babies. Treating your gum disease can help to improve your existing heath conditions.
