Common Myths about Palm Harbor Family Cosmetic Dentistry

Posted on March 2, 2012

Common Myths about Palm Harbor Family Cosmetic Dentistry Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many so-called Palm Harbor cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Dental procedures such as tooth replacement are smile-enhancing and, more importantly, prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Palm Harbor Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges are a Palm Harbor cosmetic dental procedure that have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many advantages for Palm Harbor dental patients. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Palm Harbor tooth implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Prestige Dentistry, we offer our Palm Harbor dental patients teeth whitening treatments that provide a much greater level of whiteness than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide optimum results and can often lead to uneven coloring.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Call us at 727-478-0488 to set up an appointment so we can determine the best solution for you.

Myth #5: Palm Harbor Clear Braces are the Only Way to Straighten Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our Palm Harbor teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, Lumineers can reshape your teeth and dramatically improve your smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer instant results!
