Professional Teeth Whitening In Arcadia

Professional Teeth Whitening at Premier Dental Esthetics - Peter S. Young, DDSA stunning smile leaves a lasting impression. Professional teeth whitening from Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia can dramatically improve your overall appearance and give you a boost in self-confidence.

Our teeth often turn yellow or gray as we age. The things we eat and drink continually such as colored sodas, coffee and red wine exacerbate the staining.

Most people are aware that smoking is not only bad for the lungs, but can also discolor the teeth. There are even some medications that can impact tooth color.

If you are considering having your teeth whitened, you must first select which method to use. At Premier Dental Esthetics, we enjoy discussing treatment options with our patients. To schedule a consultation to talk about teeth whitening or any other dental procedure, call our office.

All of the whitening methods may cause tooth pain or sensitivity, but this usually goes away in a few days. If you have crowns, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding, it is critical to talk to your dentist before choosing a whitening method.

Teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry services offered by Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia. We also offer a full range of family dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Smile Makeovers: First Things First

smile design Arcadia

In this blog post from Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia, we will focus on something that happens occasionally when a patient requests cosmetic dentistry.

Let us set the stage. The patient comes in for a consultation about a smile makeover. We’ll call him Mr. Jones. The dentist listens carefully as he explains the esthetic problems that he wants to remedy. Mr. Jones wants to fix two chipped teeth, get a dental implant for a tooth that is missing altogether, and whiten his whole smile. He describes what he envisions for his smile after undergoing treatment.

The dentist performs an examination of his entire mouth and takes x-rays. The dentist discovers some additional problems. There are three teeth with moderate decay, one tooth with acute decay, gum disease, an old crown with a crack in it, and severe bone recession at the potential dental implant site where the tooth was extracted ten years ago.

The dentist explains that these troubles need to be addressed before the cosmetic dental smile makeover is performed. Mr. Jones says that the smile makeover is his first priority and plans to deal with the other problems sometime in the future.

How does the dentist advise Mr. Jones? The dentist will probably explain that the lasting success of a cosmetic dental procedure such as porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or tooth whitening is influenced by the condition of the mouth at the time of treatment. There must be a solid, healthy foundation, so to speak, on which to build the smile makeover.

First things first. It makes no sense to attach a veneer to a decayed tooth that may need a root canal. A dental implant may not integrate with the surrounding bone structure if placed at a site where there is bone recession. Tooth whitening will probably not produce favorable results where there is gum disease and exposed tooth roots.

Can Mr. Jones ever have his dream smile? Yes! There are treatments to fix all of the problems mentioned previously. But just like many other things in life, the order of operations is critical.

At Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia, we provide family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Premier Dental Esthetics – Peter S. Young, DDS Works To Earn Your Trust

Premier Dental Esthetics - Peter S. Young, DDS in ArcadiaHello! I’m Dr. Peter Young, DDS, of Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 1997. Dentistry is a challenging and fascinating profession; dentists must have diagnostic skills, dexterity, extensive scientific knowledge, and good visual memory. Dentistry also requires artistic ability. In addition to the technical aspects of dentistry, I really enjoy interacting with my Arcadia dental patients.

I recognize that my patients have other choices in Pasadena area dental practices, and I work continually to earn their trust and surpass their expectations.

Each dental patient is unique. Many of my patients come in twice-yearly for an exam and cleaning. We help them maintain excellent oral health. Some San Gabriel cosmetic dentistry patients come to me seeking major restorative dental work. It is extremely gratifying to complete a smile makeover and see the patient’s reaction when they see their new smile for the first time.

When I have a pre-treatment consultation with a new South Temple City patient, it is very informative for both of us. The patient learns the specifics about the possible procedures and I learn about the patient’s goals, concerns and expectations. Then I work with the patient to develop a dental treatment plan that fits the patient’s needs, desired outcome and budget.

My dental practice is located at 301 W Huntington Dr. Ste 217 in Arcadia. If you are looking for an experienced dentist in the Pasadena area, call 626-445-2536 to schedule a consultation.

I look forward to meeting with you.

Dental Confidence Or Caution

Whether you are one of the folks who goes willingly for your check-up, or are hesitant about getting dental work done, Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia wants to see you every six months to make sure you’ve got excellent oral health.

There is a direct connection between poor dental health and underlying, systemic conditions. To put it another way, a healthy mouth can help you maintain a healthy body.

Oral bacteria and inflammation may be associated with a host of health issues, from heart disease and endocarditis, to premature birth and low birth weights. Oral bacteria can spread from the mouth into the blood and cause serious, even life-threatening infection of the heart valves.

We aren’t trying to frighten anyone, but clearly your oral health is a  serious issue. It’s a good reason (maybe the best) to brush and floss daily (twice a day is better), and see us at Premier Dental Esthetic in Arcadia every six months for a cleaning and checkup. We provide family dentistry, along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Know The Facts About Oral Piercings

health risks of oral piercings Arcadia

Body piercings are a common form of self-expression. This post is about oral piercing, and its effects on oral health.

Since this is a dental blog, you may be expecting all sorts of alarms about the dangers of piercings. You are right. Unfortunately, these piercings and the jewelry they accommodate can lead to serious troubles with not only your teeth and mouth, but your entire body.

Oral piercings can cause tooth damage, tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth loss, bone recession, compromised immune system function and, in rare cases, death. Any oral piercing opens you up to  harmful infections and complications. The mouth is full of germs and introducing foreign objects permanently is not natural for your body’s health.

A tongue piercing can result in difficulty chewing with unnatural chewing patterns that may lead to swallowing problems. The jewelry produces excess saliva from the salivary glands, which throws off the natural balance of your oral cavity. Permanent nerve deterioration, excessive bleeding, and allergic reactions can also develop.

Metal jewelry also can easily come in contact with your teeth, leading to cracked, chipped, or damaged teeth. Your teeth are built to last a lifetime. Chips, cracks, and enamel erosion compromise their durability and shorten their life span.

Complications with some piercings ensue by the introduction of hepatitis and herpes simplex viruses, and even more complications have occurred with bacteria entering the bloodstream and eventually lodging in the heart valve. In rare cases, such infections are fatal.

Though not technically a piercing, some California people drill small holes in their teeth to place rhinestones or other jewelry. Drilling into a tooth is harmful for many reasons, including damage that can make a root canal necessary. The jewel also can attract bacteria that can directly go into the drilled cavity of the tooth.

At Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia, we are providers of family and cosmetic dentistr. We encourage patients with oral piercings to remove their jewelry before it puts their health at risk. If plan to keep yours, we urge you to have regular dental cleanings and check-ups. We will set up a schedule for regular visits so we can discover and correct problems in their early stages before they become more severe.

Same Day Smile Makeovers

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Premier Dental Esthetics - Peter S. Young, DDS In Arcadia

Have you ever wished your cosmetic dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as quick and easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers from Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia, it’s possible.

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently attached to your natural teeth. Unlike a crown procedure, no tooth structure needs to be removed to place the restoration.

At Premier Dental Esthetics, veneers are used alone or with other cosmetic dental procedures in complete smile makeovers. Because they can repair cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes described as ‘instant orthodontics’.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be fabricated in any size or shape.

Are veneers
strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, just ask us. We will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look incredible!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.

Are porcelain veneers affordable
?
The cost of cosmetic porcelain veneers at Premier Dental Esthetics is competitive with other premium cosmetic dental practices in the Pasadena area. We use the top dental lab to create our veneers and a significant portion of the cost goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive than crowns and orthodontia.

How To Get The Whitest Teeth

teeth whitening Arcadia

Some people’s teeth are whiter than others, but it’s safe to say that most people want their teeth to be pearly white! If you are one of those people, then Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia has some tips to help you achieve that smile with professional teeth whitening.

Don’t Forget to Brush
The first tip seems like a no-brainer, but many individuals still miss this practice. We are talking about daily tooth brushing. Brushing your teeth with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste is one of the best ways to keep your teeth clean and prevent tooth decay. Often our teeth become discolored or stained because of what we consume (drinks, food, etc.) but when we brush our teeth, it minimizes the damage.

After brushing teeth, another tip is using a fluoride rinse to finish the cleaning job. Fluoride helps get into the cracks where bacteria can be hiding away. When the bacteria is killed, it prevents it from spreading and discoloring your teeth. When you are shopping for a fluoride rinse, check the labels. Some ordinary mouthwashes don’t contain fluoride.

Sometimes the discoloration is too severe to be reversed by home remedies. That’s why we at Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia offers professional teeth whitening. We also offer family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
