Some individuals think that a whitening treatment will erase all of the damage your enamel has incurred over the years. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. To achieve the best possible whitening results, it's important you practice good oral hygiene on a daily basis.

Filling out the necessary paperwork as a new patient can take some time. Asking the doctor's office for the paperwork in advance could speed up your wait time once you come to your appointment.

Are Root Canals Painful?
(http://ow.ly/VVFE30n48LS)

No. Thanks to modern tools and treatment technologies, root canals are relatively pain-free. Prior to your root canal, Dr. Westmoreland will apply a local anesthetic to your gums and teeth, ensuring you experience no pain or discomfort. Next, Dr. Westmoreland carefully removes infected or inflamed pulp from the center of your tooth, providing relief and allowing your body's natural healing processes to take place.

If a toothache is negatively impacting your quality of life, you may benefit from a root canal. Contact Dr. Westmoreland at Wedgewood Dental to request an appointment today.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?
(http://ow.ly/EHs430n48LP)

The cost of your veneers will depend on where you live, how many teeth are being treated, and what type of results you're trying to achieve. In most cases, veneers cost between $1,000 and $2,000 per tooth. While most insurance companies do not cover dental veneers, every provider is different.

If you're missing teeth or have crooked or discolored teeth, veneers can restore your smile to a more aesthetically pleasing condition. Contact Dr. Westmoreland at Wedgewood Dental to schedule a consultation today.

How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?
(http://ow.ly/WA4G30n44C2)

You care for your dental implants just like you would your natural teeth. Brush and floss them twice each day, and visit the dentist once every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning. Additionally, you may want to avoid drinking beverages that stain like coffee or red wine; this will ensure your implants stay shiny and white for years to come.

At Wedgewood Dental, Dr. Westmoreland offers an array of cosmetic dentistry services including dental implants. Following a thorough exam and review of your medical history Dr. Westmoreland can determine the course of treatment that will best meet your needs.

Are There Certain Factors That Increase My Risk of Gum Disease?
(http://ow.ly/PZ2x30n44C1)

Yes. While gum disease can affect anyone, there are certain habits and factors that can increase your risk of a problem. For example, if you're over the age of 65, you're more likely to suffer from gum disease than someone who is younger. Research shows almost 70% of individuals over 65 have some type of gum disease. Other contributing factors include smoking cigarettes, having a family history of gum disease, and certain prescription medications.

Can Cavities Be Reversed?
(http://ow.ly/MJbT30n44BY)

It depends. If your dentist catches a cavity in its earliest stages, a professional in-office fluoride treatment may be able to stop the decay from getting worse. However, fluoride isn't a cure-all for tooth decay or other serious oral health problems. The best thing you can do to prevent issues like these is to brush and floss on a daily basis.
