Same Day Crowns Offer the Ultimate in Convenience

Lots of people have at least one or two crowns or will require a dental crown in the near future. A crown is designed to provide excellent protection for a severely damaged tooth, covering up the entire structure, so none of the original tooth is visible in the mouth. Covering or capping the tooth preserves it, preventing further damage and infection and decay. The Process for Having a Conventional Dental Crown in Oshawa Usually, a crown is fabricated in the dental laboratory using a tray impression of your teeth and which must be cast into a plaster model. The model is used to custom-make the new crown and often two or more weeks are needed before it is ready to be returned to the dental office for fitting. This method works extremely well, but patients must have a temporary crown while the permanent crown is being fabricated. Although we can…

Toothache, What Causes It and How It Is Treated

A toothache can be extremely unpleasant, and the tooth pain may be continual, sharp or throbbing. Sometimes a tooth might only hurt when you bite down on it.

What Is Causing Discoloration Of Teeth?

If someone has recently pinpointed your stained or discolored teeth, it is indeed time for you to check on your day-to-day habits that might be responsible for it. Your teeth are protected by soft enamel that has a natural white color. However, once the enamel wears out, the lower layer known as dentin gets revealed, which is yellow in color. Now the enamel gradually wears out, but there are some habits that can speed-up discoloration. One of the most adverse habits that accelerate discoloration of teeth is intake of too much coffee or tea. Tea or coffee is acidic so it results in erosion of the enamel. Besides, it leaves your teeth stickier, thus causing food particles to latch on. If not tea or coffee, then even sugary drinks could be responsible for discoloration. Since aerated drinks are a mix of sugar and acid, you shouldn’t keep them for long…

This is because even as enamel is touted as being the hardest substance in the body, it is vulnerable to attack from bacteria and microbes, many of which are mobilized when food is eaten. Ask any dentist and he will give you a long list of foods you should avoid in order to keep your teeth healthy. The first thing you’ll be told is to avoid too many sweets. The breakdown of sweets makes the oral climate very acidic due to the action of bacteria. Excess acid in the teeth can corrode the enamel and weaken teeth easily, eventually leading to cavities even. Avoiding naturally acidic foods like citrus fruits and processed meats is also thus recommended. You should also limit the intake of foods that stain the teeth such as tea, coffee,…
