The Gift Of Oral Health In Doylestown

The Gift Of Oral Health In Doylestown

Many dental patients may wonder why, with all the advances in dental medicine, we still send you home with a complimentary toothbrush and roll of floss. It’s true, they do seem a little old-fashioned in our high-tech world, but don’t let their simple design fool you. These tools are the best bet to prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease for Lansdale dental patients!

When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential part of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing, which should be done at least twice a day, can be done effectively with any type of toothbrush. There is no need to pay a bundle for a fancy electric toothbrush from your Doylestown Wal-Mart, just brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes making sure to reach all the surfaces.

Flossing should be done once a day and is important for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Quakertown, Harleysville, and North Penn drugstores, so find one you like.

I’m Dr. Kevin Bass and Lawrence Black, an experienced Lansdale dentist, and I want to help you enjoy your dental visits and adore your smile.

Our calm and comfortable staff loves sending our Doylestown and Harleysville area patients away with a new toothbrush and floss, but we also find it rewarding to see our patients gain renewed confidence with a smile makeover.

We’d love to answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry such as tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants, or any other dental health topic.

Affordable One-Visit Tooth Fix

affordable fix for chipped tooth Doylestown

Some Doylestown people are unhappy with the way their teeth look but many mistakenly assume that cosmetic dentistry is far too expensive to pursue.

Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be a costly investment. Consider the cost of dental school and post-graduate training for a master level cosmetic dentist. Consider the expense of individually creating multiple restorations at a high-tech dental lab. Consider the cost of setting up and maintaining a full-service dental practice or laboratory.

Before you give up on improving your smile, however, look at a less celebrated but extremely effective and economical cosmetic dental remedy: dental bonding.

Dental bonding has a wide range of applications for unsightly teeth. Bonding can correct a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can can also repair teeth that have gaps in between them.

How does the dental bonding procedure work?

First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. Your dentist will use a shade guide to identify the specific color of composite to match the existing teeth. Your dentist will apply liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer. He or she will carefully shape and polish it before it hardens.The tooth is then covered with a conditioning liquid that aids in adhesion.

Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the specific shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps speedily bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if required, complete the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.

Bonding is a simple and cost-effective method for perfecting your smile. Call today at to set up an appointment at 267-498-5297.

We invite you to meet the amazing team at Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale. We are proud of our venerable reputation for critical personalized attention and first-rate care. Our calm and comfortable team can answer any questions you have about our top services: cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and dental implants.

We are now accepting new patients and look forward to meeting you.

Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry Takes Care Of Plaque, Calculus, And Cavities

Doylestown Guide To Plaque, Calculus, And Cavities

Hi. We are Dr. Kevin Bass and Lawrence Black. Welcome to my Lansdale dental blog! I find that many of my patients in the Quakertown, Harleysville, and North Penn areas get a couple of dental terms mixed up. Today, I would like to clarify the differences between plaque, calculus, and cavities.

Plaque is a film that covers teeth – a sticky layer of bacteria. You can remove plaque through daily brushing and flossing. However, if it isn’t removed it can build up and harden into calculus.

Calculus, also known as tartar, is hardened plaque that also accumulates minerals from food and saliva. Regular check-ups and cleanings with your Lansdale dentist are necessary to remove tartar as well as hard-to-reach plaque.

Plaque and calculus are not cavities, but they can lead to cavities. A cavity is basically a hole in the tooth caused by decay. Because plaque and calculus contain bacteria, the bacteria release acids which accelerate tooth decay and eventually lead to more cavities.

A good rule of thumb for Doylestown dental patients is this: Avoid plaque to avoid calculus and tartar to avoid tooth decay to avoid cavities. Got it?

I hope you’ve found this helpful, and if you’re in the Quakertown, Harleysville, or North Penn area and are in need of quality dental care, call our office at 267-498-5297 to schedule an appointment today.

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry In Lansdale

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry In Lansdale Have you ever wished your Lansdale cosmetic dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.

Unlike a crown procedure, your Lansdale dentist does not need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration. If the teeth in question have decay, come see us immediately.

Call 267-498-5297 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

At Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale, veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures to create complete smile makeovers. Because they can correct cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled Doylestown cosmetic 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 made in any size or shape.

Are veneers at Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
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, talk to Kevin Bass and Lawrence Black. Dr. Lawrence Black will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

How long do veneers last?
Some Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look terrific!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.

Are porcelain veneers affordable in Doylestown
?
The cost of cosmetic dental veneers at Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry is competitive with other premium cosmetic dental practices in the Doylestown area. We use what we believe is the top Pennsylvania dental lab to create our veneers and a significant portion of the cost of veneers goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive in Doylestown than crowns and orthodontia. For questions about the cost of porcelain veneers, call our office at 267-498-5297

Foaming At The Mouth: Are You Brushing Right?

Lansdale affordable family dentist

In today’s post, let’s examine some information about brushing. One key to activating the value of toothpastes is creating foam when properly brushing.

Working up a good foam is brought about by pre-wetting the toothbrush, then attacking at a 45 rather than 90 degree angle. The foaming aids in dislodging food debris from nooks and crannies in the mouth. Go ahead and swish it around at the completion of brushing to pick up any stragglers. The abrasives in toothpaste are designed to polish the teeth without damaging the enamel.

Because of the abrasives, soft toothbrushes are best for proper brushing. Harder bristles can put the enamel and gum line at risk. When the gum line recedes from aggressive brushing (or any other cause) a patient may observe tooth pain, increased build-up and decay, tooth structure weakening, and in severe cases, tooth loss.

The fluoride in the toothpaste promotes remineralization when the paste has been rubbed around on all surfaces of all teeth in the entire mouth. This takes time so make certain you brush for at least 2-3 minutes.

Moreover, remember that flossing is essential and rounds out the 5 minutes each day to give you healthy, pain-free chewing for years and years to come.

To recap:
Wet soft bristle toothbrush
Use fluoridated toothpaste
Brush at 45 degree angle
Brush gently for 2-3 minutes
Cover every surface of every tooth
Swish around in mouth before spitting out
Floss gently around each tooth and don’t forget the back surface of the rear molars
Rinse out debris
