Tips to Save a Tooth That is Knocked Out


Hate Everything About Your Teeth? 3 Services A Cosmetic Dentist Can Offer You

If you hate everything about the way your teeth look, you can visit a cosmetic dentist, who can offer many services to make your teeth look better. To help you, below are three of these services so you can decide if you would like to do this for yourself.

1. Whiten Teeth

If your teeth have stains you can go to a cosmetic dentist to have them whitened. When the dentist is finished your teeth will be sparkling white.

The whitening process can be done in the dentist's office or at your home. If done in the dentist office, a bleaching gel is placed on your teeth. The dentist then uses a type of light probe to go over the teeth to activate the bleach, which then starts to remove the stains.

If you want to whiten your teeth at home, the cosmetic dentist will give you a kit to whiten your teeth. This kit includes a bleaching gel and a tray. You put the gel in each compartment of the tray and then put the tray on your teeth. Your cosmetic dentist will explain to you exactly how to use the kit.

2. Repair Decayed Teeth

If the decayed teeth in your mouth are so bad a regular filling would not be able to stay in the teeth. Instead, the dentist will use an inlay. This involves the dentist making a mold of your teeth. They then send the mold to a laboratory and the inlay is made.

The inlay is then placed over each decayed tooth. The dentist attaches the inlays using an adhesive cement. This will prevent your teeth from decaying further, and the teeth will look white and in great shape.

3. Replace Missing Teeth

If you have missing teeth, the doctor can use dental veneers to replace the teeth. It is important that you have this done as the teeth next to the empty space will likely move to fill in the space, and then your teeth will become crooked. Dental veneers are made of ceramic, and when finished they are like your natural teeth. The lab can match the veneers to the color of your teeth, so they match perfectly.

The veneer is connected to your jawbone. In most cases, the veneers will last forever so you will not have to worry about having them being replaced. The doctor will make a mold to send to a laboratory. When they receive the veneers, the doctor will put them in your mouth. To do this, you will have to have a surgery.

The cosmetic dentistry services you hire can go over all this information with you in much more details.

About Me

Tips to Save a Tooth That is Knocked Out

I love horses, and my family has kept them for years. One day, I was getting onto the saddle of my favorite horse, and I had a bad accident. My foot slipped as I was getting on her, and I fell. Thankfully, I didn't suffer any major injuries other than a tooth that was knocked out of my mouth. I had a great friend who helped me save it. She rinsed the tooth off in milk, and she had me hold it in my mouth after that until we arrived at the emergency dentist. He was able to stick it right back in! He placed a temporary splint in my mouth to keep the tooth in place until it healed. I am happy to say my tooth is perfect now! I created this blog let others know they can save a tooth that is knocked out if they act fast!
