Is Nail Biting Bad For My Teeth?
(http://ow.ly/47Or30n3cL5)

Although nail biting can be a tough habit to break, it puts your teeth and gums at risk. Studies show nail biters are more likely to suffer from chipped and cracked teeth as well as root resorption. In addition, patients who bite their fingernails are more susceptible to TMJ disorders, jaw pain, and teeth grinding.

What Is A CEREC Crown?
(http://ow.ly/QSsu30n3cKX)

CEREC crowns provide a safe and durable alternative to traditional dental crowns. CEREC crowns are manufactured using a high-quality ceramic composite and are extremely long-lasting. Unlike traditional dental crowns, which require the application of a temporary crown; CEREC crowns are molded in-office and are affixed to your teeth during one appointment. This saves you time and restores your smile more quickly.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?
(http://ow.ly/vIcK30n3cKW)

Teeth whitening treatment is not permanent. To achieve the best possible results, you'll want to avoid foods and beverages like wine and coffee that can stain your teeth. Although it might seem annoying, avoiding foods and beverages that stain can keep your teeth white and bright for up to a year at a time. However, the degree of whiteness achieved varies from patient-to-patient and depends on an array of factors including the condition of your teeth, the level of staining, and the type of bleaching system utilized.
