july 4th npb caEveryone in America loves celebrating Independence Day. We grill burgers and hot dogs, we meet up and swim together. We come together and shoot off fireworks, uniting as Americans.

Which makes this a perfect time for quick cosmetic touch-ups, as the 4th is just around the corner. Today, your Newport Beach, CA dentist touches on some of the quicker procedures you might be able to schedule between here and then!

Whitening Is Quick And Easy

One of the speediest procedures we can do here in our office in Newport Beach is teeth whitening. For people with natural, healthy teeth, this is often a procedure we can add-on to things like examinations, with minimal time.

Most of the time our whitening procedure takes under an hour. We utilize a bleaching gel that we coat on the surface of the teeth. Then we shine a high-powered UV light on your smile, wiping away years of stains.

Our procedure gently lifts layers of stains, keeping the integrity of the teeth intact. First and foremost, we always want a structurally sound smile.

If you have a veneer or a crown, we will also be sure to match your natural teeth to the porcelain. We will design a natural-appearing smile for you, always!

Fix Smaller Chips

Many of us have small chips that have come off of your teeth, from some injury or another. Simply eating can often cause these types of damage. Even if it isn’t noticeable to others, for many of us, feeling the roughness with our tongue can be annoying!

We can do onlays, inlays, and veneers in a very simple and easy procedure. For these more minimal repairs, it is always worth it to squeeze in a quicker, less-invasive procedure than a larger one. 

Trauma on the mouth can take a toll on the overall health of the body, and if it is currently only an issue with the enamel, it is best to handle before it affects the root or the periodontal (gum) tissue. 

Natural matter is fairly easy to replicate with porcelain, and ensuring that the root is fully covered can prevent bacterial infection. These infections can cause you severe pain, as well as loss of the tooth. In some instances, the bone tissue of the jaw can become infected, which can result in the removal of both tooth and bone.
