Dental Cleaning in Northeaston

Dental Hygiene

The goal of our preventive program at Easton Smiles is to stop tooth decay in its tracks. In order to accomplish this, you need to utilize a sound strategy of daily brushing and flossing at home and also come in twice per year for a dental exam. That allows us to detect any cavities before they become larger ones and fill them. But what of the causes that led to the cavities in the first place? Well, even the most thorough oral hygiene program at home may not be able to eliminate all of the plaque, food remnants, and the bacteria that feed off of them. These enemies of your dental health have a way of hiding between teeth and in gum pockets, making it difficult to remove without a professional cleaning. And tartar can form as a hardened type of plaque. Once it takes root, nothing short of our dental cleaning in Northeaston can remove it.

Clean teeth are healthy teeth. There’s no doubt about that. As essential as a physical exam of your teeth and x-rays are to finding signs of tooth decay damage and repairing them with a dental filling, it won’t stop new cavities from occurring. That’s because your precious tooth enamel gets eroded by the forces of plaque, tartar, and bacteria. These same culprits can also cause you to develop gum disease, which leads to redness, inflammation, and even infection of the gums. Without regular dental cleanings, you can eventually wind up with cavities that allow bacteria into the pulp area of a tooth. This can mean root canal infection and a great deal of pain. Enough tooth decay can cause the need for that tooth to be removed. And advanced gum disease is marked by loss of gum and bone tissue, and a poor foundation for your teeth, maybe causing one or more to fall out. When you consider all of this, the ease of getting our dental cleaning in Northeaston seems like a no brainer.

There’s little to no discomfort involved in the process and your dental hygiene and long term dental health depend upon having clean teeth. After you have our dental cleaning in Northeaston, you can rededicate yourself to a healthful diet limited in sugar and a strong oral hygiene regimen at home.

While most people are satisfied with the tooth sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and regular cleanings at Easton Smiles, some may still desire a whiter smile. If you’re looking to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, consider professional in-office tooth whitening with Drs. Herlihy and Tuck at Easton Smiles. During a tooth whitening consultation, our Mansfield cosmetic dentists will explain the benefits of each tooth whitening procedure so you can make an informed decision. Treatment can often start immediately, so you can enjoy your new smile right then and there.

Tooth Whitening in Easton

Most patients that come to Easton Smiles for tooth whitening have teeth that are stained and darkened from the same four factors: age, coffee, tea, and smoking. As we age, our teeth naturally become discolored as a result of the thinning of the tooth enamel. Because of this natural process, tooth color is one of the characteristics most strongly associated with age. With their many years of experience, the Mansfield general dentists at Easton Smiles have found that teeth naturally darkened with the color of yellow, brown or orange often respond better to tooth whitening procedures. Alternatively, teeth that are from the inside out, say from excessive tooth decay, will not bleach well at all. Likewise, whitening may not enhance your smile if you have had dental fillings or crowns. Tooth bleaching does not affect any dental appliances, in which case you may want to consider porcelain veneers as an alternative cosmetic procedure. 

If your teeth are stained or discolored or if you’re just not happy with the color of your teeth, schedule a tooth whitening consultation at Easton Smiles today!

In-office professional tooth whitening is one of the quickest ways to safely whiten your teeth. Additionally, professional tooth whitening with our Mansfield general dentists can last for several years, whereas other treatments last for a few months and need constant maintenance. By applying a specialized solution of whitening gel to your teeth, we can penetrate the enamel and dentin in your teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. At Easton Smiles, we’re proud to help our patients whiten their teeth from four to six shades! With a commitment to regular brushing and flossing, plus an annual touch up with custom-made trays at home, you can have stunningly white teeth for years!

Unfortunately, there are some limitations to how effective teeth whitening can be. Though our Mansfield general dentists at Easton Smiles can help whiten your teeth with bleaching and whitening, occasionally a patient will be unhappy with how white their smile is. Some types of teeth stains simply cannot be removed. However, other cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers and bonding, are a good alternative to teeth whitening. These restorative dental materials do not discolor or stain and can last for many years. Additionally, veneers and bonding can cover up slight misalignments and chips. To learn more about tooth whitening and other cosmetic procedures, please visit Easton Smiles located near Mansfield, Massachusetts.
