Light Up A Room: Teeth Whitening in Lansdale

Some people have smiles so white and dazzling, they can light up a room. Brightening your smile is as easy as scheduling an appointment with Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale, for professional teeth whitening.

Teeth have a way of yellowing with time. And so much of what we eat and drink can leave stains and discolorations. Now you can do something about it.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry. It’s easy to see why. A bright set of teeth conveys confidence and personality, and helps you make a positive first impression on other people.

We offer our patients Zoom! teeth whitening, a treatment that can dramatically whiten your teeth in a single office visit. A special bleaching agent is applied to your teeth and activated by LED lamps to penetrate deep into the tooth enamel. The results are quite dramatic: far superior to any over-the-counter teeth whitening products.

For those patients who prefer to do whitening themselves, we have the Nite White at-home whitening system. Whitening gels go into custom-made trays that you wear at night. Within two weeks, your smile has been transformed.

Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale offers additional cosmetic dentistry services, such as porcelain and prepless veneers, and dental implants. We also provide general and family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Seal Your Teeth in Lansdale PA

Regular brushing and flossing are essential for optimal oral health. However, Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale reminds you that the bristles of your toothbrush can’t reach into every small groove and depression in your teeth, especially the really bumpy back teeth.

That’s where dental sealants can be invaluable. Sealants are a plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars, providing an extra layer of protection. By covering the pits and fissures in your teeth, sealants act as a shield against acids and plaque that cause cavities.

Some people think that sealants are only for children and teenagers, but they can be good for adult teeth, too. Applying sealants is a simple procedure that can improve your dental health by protecting the surfaces that are most vulnerable to decay.

Getting dental sealants applied to your teeth does not, of course, mean you no longer need to brush. Consider them extra protection, along with regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist every six months.

Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale can apply dental sealants to your teeth. We provide general and family dentistry, along with popular cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Call our office today to schedule a consultation or an appointment.

Here’s To Your Dental Health!

The team at Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale is committed to providing outstanding dental health care to each of its patients. Good dental health leads to good general health, so it’s essential to establish a daily teeth cleaning routine you can stick to.

Teeth may seem like lifeless bone, but they are living structures. Within that hard exterior is an inner chamber filled with dentin, a mesh of mineralized, connective tissue. At the core of each tooth are nerves encased in a pulpy sheath. The teeth are anchored to the jaw by ligaments, and a material called cementum.

We like to see you for a cleaning and checkup every six months. One of our hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque, tartar, and stains. Even if you brush and floss religiously, tartar can develop, and it’s important to get it off.

Every year, researchers seem to find new evidence that strengthens the connection between good dental health and good overall health. Oral bacteria and inflammation is associated with heart disease, premature birth, and low birth weights.

That’s why we stress the importance of coming in to Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale twice a year. We want you to protect your dental health. We provide general and family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and professional teeth whitening, among many other services. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Dental Implants: Technological Marvels

Millions of Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number is growing steadily. At Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we are providers of these dental marvels to our patients in Montgomeryville and surrounding areas.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the patient’s jaw. Because they replace the missing tooth’s root, they help the jawbone maintain its density and prevent bone recession. An artificial tooth is fitted on top of the titanium post.

One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they look and function like natural teeth. If you’re missing one of your teeth, they’re an excellent, long-term option.

For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in  themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.

To find out more about dental implants from Black & Bass Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, contact our office. We also offer teeth whitening, porcelain and prepless veneers, and provide emergency dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Nothing to Fear!

Two words can strike fear into the most courageous of souls: root canal. But at Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale, root canals are performed with the patient’s comfort uppermost in mind.

A root canal is a procedure done to save a tooth. It treats the inside of the tooth, and becomes necessary when a cavity infects its interior. The infection can cause increased sensitivity and a whole lot of pain.

The technical term for a root canal is endodontic therapy. It works like this: an access hole is drilled in the surface of the infected tooth, then the damaged interior, or pulp, is removed. The remaining tooth is thoroughly cleaned, filled, and sealed. A crown is placed over the whole thing to protect it, and provide a natural-looking appearance.

No one likes going to the dentist to begin with, and root canals have the reputation of being painful. In fact, the opposite is true: infected teeth cause pain, and root canals relieve it.

Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry also offers general and family dentistry, and popular procedures like teeth whitening. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Five Simple Ways To Avoid A Cracked Tooth

cost of dental crowns Doylestown

Cracked teeth can be painful, unattractive, and expensive to repair. They can also constitute a dental emergency. The Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry team would like to share some tips to keep your teeth whole and strong.

1. Avoiding a cracked tooth means avoiding chewing on hard things. Mind-blowing, right? People should steer clear of ice, hard candies, hard nuts, popcorn, and beef jerky. Also be wary of pitted fruits—that peach may be soft, but if you bite hard into the stone, you could damage a tooth.

2. It is vital to protect your teeth while engaging in any physical activity where your mouth can be hit. If you enjoy pick-up basketball games, indoor soccer leagues, rec center flag football, and many other activities, you should use a mouth guard.

3. Don’t use your teeth as a tool. Locate a pair of scissors to open a package or rip the price tag off a new piece of clothing with your teeth. Use a nutcracker for nuts. A quality dental crown can cost hundreds of dollars.

4. Don’t grind your teeth. Teeth grinding usually happens as you sleep. If you know or suspect that you are a tooth grinder, speak with us so you can address the problem with stress reduction techniques and/or a night guard.

5. Visit us twice a year for check-ups and cleanings. Your dentist can alert you to conditions that might predispose you to cracked teeth, such as having an uneven chewing surface or brittle teeth.

If you already have a cracked tooth, never fear! Treatment is available, including emergency dentistry. Cracked and damaged teeth can be repaired with cosmetic dentistry techniques like dental crowns and fillings. We also provide general and family dentistry, and anxiety-free dentistry. Call us today.

Love Your Smile: Teeth Whitening in Lansdale

Love Your Smile in Lansdale There is nothing like bright white teeth. They light up a person’s whole face whenever they smile and laugh. And with professional teeth whitening from Black & Bass, no one in Lansdale has to settle for dull, yellow teeth.

We have all seen the ads in print and electronic media, promoting any number of sure-fire ways to whiten your teeth. Over-the-counter products all work, up to a point. But they cannot deliver the kind of dazzling white teeth you’ll get from a professional whitening at Black & Bass.

There are two basic types of teeth whitening: bleaching, and non-bleaching. Simple, right? Non-bleaching procedures remove stains on the teeth with physical or chemical actions. These include whitening toothpastes, and the physical part, as you can imagine, is the brushing.

It’s considered an abrasion method. There are professional abrasion techniques, too.

Bleaching does a far superior job of whitening the teeth. At Black & Bass, we offer our patients Zoom! teeth whitening. Zoom! can whiten your teeth in just one visit to our Lansdale office.

The  process is simple and painless. We prepare your gums and lips, then paint on a special tooth bleaching gel. Next, LED lamps activate the gel, and Zoom! penetrates deep into the enamel to bleach away stains and discolorations.

To find out more about professional teeth whitening, and other cosmetic dentistry services, call us at Black & Bass in Lansdale, to schedule a consultation or an appointment.

21st Century Tooth Replacement: Dentures in Lansdale

Quakertown tooth implant supported dentures

“The Good Old Days.” We’ve seen so many technological advances since the good old days! Take dentures, for instance. Dentures have been around for generations and have certainly improved the lives of thousands of people. But today, there are better options than old-school false teeth, in Lansdale and everywhere else.

Traditional dentures can impede many vital oral functions: chewing, tasting, swallowing, talking, and smiling. Some people have stopped attending social activities because they’re embarrassed by dentures that are too conspicuous. Some have even stopped eating their favorite foods because their dentures diminish their capacity to taste and/or chew.

Let’s hear it for the twenty-first century! For many patients, implant-anchored or implant-supported dentures are far superior to old-school dentures. So much better, in fact, that there really should be another term for this industry-leading tooth replacement system – a term that doesn’t include the word “denture.”

There are two types of implant anchored dentures: removable and permanent. No adhesive is needed for either system. With the permanent implant-supported dentures, screw retentions are anchored in the jaw to serve as denture attachment points. This type is very stable. The cost varies, depending on the number of implants required and other factors.

Implant-supported dentures require enough bone thickness to allow the implant to securely mesh with the existing bone. Some patients who have been missing teeth for a long time have experienced bone loss. For these patients, mini-implants may be an alternative.

Removable implant anchored dentures have a locator attachment that allows the wearer to snap the appliance in place. Some patients prefer this type because they can remove them at night for cleaning.

For more information about dental implants and dentures, call Black & Bass to schedule a consultation. We have been providing quality care, including general and family dentistry, since 1989.
