Repair and Restore Damaged Teeth with Dental Bonding Norwood Loves

October 8, 2015

Woman with beautiful smile thanks to dental bonding Norwood lovesIf you’ve ever owned a brand new car, you probably remember the first scratch or chip in the paint, but what about the 5th or the 10th? Most people stop paying attention to minor flaws after the first few, but overtime, even tiny scrapes and chips add up and the car looks worn and old. The same thing happens to teeth as we age. Tiny chips and stains seem to multiply leaving teeth looking worn and faded. You can trade in your old car for a brand new model, but it’s more difficult to trade in your worn teeth. At Central Dental Associates, we work closely with patients to prevent even minor damage keeping teeth looking and feeling beautiful for life. For those who haven’t been as careful with their smiles through the years, cosmetic bonding may just be your smile’s reset button.

Enjoy a Brighter Smile with Teeth Whitening in Norwood, MA

March 25, 2015

78768689A smile can speak volumes. However, if you tend to cover your smile because you don’t want people to see the stains on your teeth, then no one can “hear” what your smile has to say. If this is the case with you, then you might want to consider teeth whitening from Central Dental Associates. Our dentists and their team of dental hygienists and assistants have brightened the smiles of many people in and around Norwood, MA, and they can do the same for you.

As we age, our teeth become stained and discolored for a variety of reasons. In fact, the aging process is an unavoidable reason itself. Other things that cause tooth discoloration include:

  • Deeply colored foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, cola, preserves and tomato sauces
  • Chips and cracks that hide food debris, which stains teeth
  • Unusual wear that causes the edges of teeth to appear darker
  • Certain antibiotics such as tetracycline
  • Tobacco products

Regardless of why your teeth are stained, with teeth whitening you can likely have a whiter and brighter smile that will actually give you the confidence to smile.

Two Ways to Whiten Teeth

At Central Dental Associates we offer two methods for you to whiten your teeth. If you would like to see results quickly, then we have an in-office treatment to whiten your smile. With this treatment, we apply a bleaching gel to your teeth. As the gel oxidizes, it penetrates the enamel of your teeth to eliminate stains. The results are immediate and long lasting. In about an hour, you’ll have a smile that will be much brighter

If you would rather not take the time for an appointment and you’d prefer to whiten your teeth in the privacy of home, then we can supply you with custom-fitted trays made at Central Dental Associates along with professional grade whitening gel. After whitening for about 30 minutes a day for two weeks, you’ll see amazing smile results.

To have a smile that you want the world to see, schedule an appointment for teeth whitening with Central Dental Associates in Norwood, MA. We also serve patients from Walpole, Westwood, Medfield, Dedham and the surrounding communities.

Holiday Dental Care Advice

November 25, 2014

170083078The approaching holiday season can be a double dose of danger for your dental care. While most people tend to eat more sugary foods and drink more alcohol, they also get so busy with holiday preparations that they forget to keep up with their normal oral hygiene routine. You can protect your teeth and make dental care a priority this season by contacting Central Dental Associates today for an appointment. The experienced dentists of Central Dental Associates proudly serve all of Norwood, MA, Walpole, Westwood, Medfield, Dedham  and nearby communities.

Holiday Dental Care Tips

  • Desserts– Drink plenty of water after eating anything sugary. This will help wash away the bacteria.
  • Sticky Treats– Avoid chewy candies and dried fruits such as cranberries. These sticky particles will linger on your teeth and are hard to remove, which increases the risk of developing cavities.
  • Alcohol– Try not to swish wine around in your mouth and drink water between glasses of wine to rinse the acid away from your teeth.
  • Sugar Free– Anytime you can substitute a treat for a sugar- free version you are helping protect your teeth. Sugar- Free treats containing the sugar substitute, Xylitol, can actually help reduce plaque buildup. Also try chewing a piece of sugar-free gum after a meal to un-stick food material from your teeth.
  • Got Milk– Dairy can protect your teeth from acids produced by oral bacteria, decreasing the possibility of tooth decay. Just add a glass of milk or a slice of cheese to your holiday candies and treats.
  • Stress- Holiday stress can cause some people to grind or clench their teeth while sleeping (bruxism). A dentist can provide you with a custom night guard to prevent damage from bruxism.

Holiday Dental Care in Norwood, MA

Have The Smile of Your Dreams with Porcelain Veneers

September 25, 2014

186932212Many people strive to have the perfect smiles they see in the magazines and on television, but they may think they could never accomplish it. A beautiful smile always sends a positive message to the people you interact with, and can definitely have positive effects on the way you feel about yourself. If your smile is less than perfect, there is no need for you to feel discouraged feeling as though you will never get the smile of your dreams. The doctors at Central Dental Associates are able to turn your dreams into a reality by offering porcelain veneers to their patients at their Norwood, MA dental office.

Porcelain veneers are wonderful because they are used to completely cover any sort of flaws you may have residing within your smile. If you have a smile that is chipped, gapped, cracked, misaligned, or stained, porcelain veneers mask it all, only revealing an immaculate smile. Also, porcelain veneers are able to give a completely rejuvenated smile in a relatively short amount of time.

The process begins with a consultation with one of our doctors, as they will have to assess the state of your smile and determine whether or not porcelain veneers are right for you. You will also have that time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have. We will take impressions of your smile, and send them to a dental lab to have your custom veneers made. When your veneers are being made, we will keep your smile goals in mind as well as your facial aesthetic, making sure your new smile looks as natural as possible. Your natural tooth will be prepared by removing a small bit of enamel. This ensures that your new smile will have space in your mouth. When your veneers are ready, they will be placed on your prepared tooth and made permanent with dental resin cement. Once everything is done, your smile is beautiful and perfect! If you would like our doctors to help revolutionize your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!

Have A Renewed Smile with Cosmetic Bonding!

August 8, 2014

shutterstock_115167076Like everything in life, things experience normal wear and tear as the days push forward. Whether it is an aged leather chair or a stain on your favorite shirt, things have a way of going through life’s daily rigors and having the evidence to prove it. Unfortunately, your smile is no different. Throughout the years, your smile may have gotten stained, chipped, and cracked, and you may not know how to fix it. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you are not completely confident in the way you look, it can affect the way you view yourself as well as your interactions with others. Fortunately, the doctors at Central Dental Associates are able to give their patients a renewed smile with the help of cosmetic bonding.

The wonderful thing about cosmetic bonding is that it is able to erase years of damage in a single appointment. If your smile is slightly misaligned, chipped, or cracked, cosmetic bonding is able to make that a thing of the past. We use a composite resin to exactly match the color of your smile, making your transformation as natural and organic as possible. Once the dentist applies the mixture on to your smile and sculpts it to your liking, they will then polish it to make it shine! At the end, you are left with a beautiful new smile!

Cosmetic bonding is a wonderful option for those who do not wish to invest in porcelain veneers, though cosmetic bonding lasts between five to ten years if taken care of properly. Also, cosmetic bonding is stain resistant, making sure your smile is bright and ready at any moment! If you would like to have our doctors help you rejuvenate your smile using cosmetic bonding, contact our office today!
