Should I See My Dentist About A Toothache?

Is it wise to wait out a toothache, or should you bring discomfort to your dentist’s attention as soon as possible? While a toothache can be triggered by something that is not an oral health issue – you could have pain related to a sinus problem, for example – it is a concern when pain does not subside after a short time. It is also concerning to have pain that feels severe enough to disrupt your day or stop you from comfortably eating. Simply put, if you think your tooth pain is a sign that something is really wrong, you should see your dentist. Sunny Smiles is ready to help patients in this situation. For times when patients need to visit someone with little advance notice, we can even offer emergency dental services. (more…)

Starting Your Daily Whitening Treatments

If you like the idea of whitening your smile at home more than going to the dentist’s office for treatment, you may assume that you can only work with store bought whitening agents.

We can actually prepare a personalized kit for you that contains advanced bleaching gels along with personalized trays to help with applications. At the end of your recommended daily treatments, you can marvel at how much your smile has changed! (more…)

Is It Time For Your Next Teeth Cleaning?

Your teeth cleanings should take place regularly. The frustrating truth is that oral bacteria pose a constant threat. Through daily brushing and flossing, we can control our risks for bacteria buildup, but it is important that you turn to your hygienist for support, too. During routine cleanings, any tartar deposits that have formed can be removed to lower your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Patients who come to Sunny Smiles for preventive care can count on thorough cleanings as well as evaluations that lead to the discovery of many different concerns. If an active oral health threat is identified at your next checkup, we can talk to you about a conservative and effective treatment to put it behind you! (more…)

Are You Starting To Worry About Your Filling?

You will need a permanent restoration after cavity treatment. A cavity is not just a problem because it damages your tooth structure. When decay makes restorative treatment necessary, it causes irreversible harm to your enamel, meaning the affected area will not heal over time. Fortunately, the filling or crown that you receive can provide long-term protection. Does this mean you will never have to worry about replacing a restoration? Unfortunately, they can wear down over time, which can leave your tooth vulnerable. If an older filling no longer feels secure, or if you have concerns about discomfort, let Sunny Smiles know. We can replace your current restoration with a custom-made one that can support your dental function as well as your smile. (more…)

When A Crown Is Needed To Restore A Tooth

Why does restorative dental work call for the placement of a dental filling or crown to complete your care? These are needed because our teeth are limited in what they can do to naturally recover from harm. When a cavity forms, or when physical damage affects your enamel, it leaves behind problems that are permanent. Fortunately, the right restoration can provide functional protection and also preserve your appearance. When you come to Sunny Smiles with concerns about your tooth health, we can provide treatment that offers lasting support. When called for, we can provide that support with a custom dental crown that you can count on to stay secure, support your bite, and even imitate your healthy enamel! (more…)

Our Approach To Family Dental Care

Does everyone in your family need the same kind of support from your dentist? While people of all ages can face many of the same oral health threats, you and your kids can require different approaches to care during routine dental exams. At Sunny Smiles, we are prepared to deliver meaningful support during routine dental exams as well as during pediatric appointments. You can count on us to help your kids learn the importance of good oral hygiene, and to make sure they are free from any developmental concerns that will have to be addressed. During your own visits, we can provide quality treatment in the form of cleanings and evaluations that protect you against tooth decay, gum disease, and other concerns. (more…)

Are Veneers An Appealing Treatment Option?

If you have concerns about your smile, looking into treatment with porcelain veneers can appeal to you. This one procedure is actually capable of taking care of several problems at one time. Because of this, patients who are worried about problems like discoloration, trouble with teeth spacing, wear and tear that can age a smile, and more can be addressed after just two appointments. Sunny Smiles offers this and other cosmetic treatment options to those who want to improve the way they look. Of course, we are also here to provide important preventive and restorative services to make sure your teeth stay healthy, too! (more…)
