Full Mouth Rehabilitation & Smile Makeovers
Getting new dentures is a big investment, and it’s important to know how to care for them properly so that they’ll last for a long, long time. Caring for your new dentures is not complicated, and after we’ve completed the process, we’ll provide specific instructions for their care.
Following these simple steps can go a long way toward extending the life of your new dentures and keeping them looking their best:
- Do not use toothpaste or regular dental products. Your dentures need to be cleaned using only products specifically made for denture care.
- Using hot water to clean, rinse, or soak your dentures may cause them to lose their shape.
- When you are not wearing your dentures, place them in warm water to keep them moist.
- Handle your dentures carefully to avoid cracking or breaking them. When cleaning them, hold your dentures over a soft surface padded with towels to prevent them from slipping from your wet hands.
Scheduling Your Dental Cleaning in North Mountain Village, AZ
An important part of preserving your dentures is to maintain a regular routine of denture cleaning appointments and exams. During these appointments, Dr. Singh will check your dentures to make sure they are in good condition. If we see a problem, we can make a repair either in our dental office or send them out to our dental lab to fix them for you.
No matter what your smile goals are, we can accommodate! At Singh Smile Care, we provide our Phoenix patients a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures that boost your smile—and self-esteem.
We can complete some smile makeover treatments in one dental visit—like professional teeth whitening that lifts stains from your enamel. Some treatments may require multiple procedures, for example, if a weakened tooth needs to be capped by a dental crown for additional support and protection. For patients who are missing a tooth, Dr. Jupneesh Singh may recommend a dental bridge to fill in the space and prevent your teeth from shifting.
Tooth Replacement Options in Phoenix
We provide tooth-colored fillings to replace darkened silver fillings that are noticeable. If you have misshapen teeth or a large gap between teeth, we can use white fillings to correct smile flaws.
Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth? Our orthodontic treatments can correct any tooth issues and give you a beautiful, straight grin. If you are interested in Six Month Smiles for a quick and cost-effective smile correction, we can schedule a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate.
Tooth Replacement Procedures
Are you missing one or more teeth? We provide dentures and dental bridges for over the gumline tooth restorations. Many Phoenix patients prefer to have a permanent replacement that will never shift or fall out. Dental implants are the best smile restoration option that can last for a lifetime.
You don't have to live with a smile you don't like, we offer all the dental procedures you need to get the perfect smile that fits your lifestyle, personality, and budget. Please contact our Phoenix office to begin the process of your smile makeover treatment plan.
If you are looking for a minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers are a great option. Many patients at our Phoenix dental office choose veneers to repair chips and cracks in their teeth, to reshape teeth, and whiten their smile, rather than more time-consuming and inconvenient options. The placement of veneers requires just a few visits to our office, and in no time we can restore your teeth and your confidence in their appearance.
Veneers are a common dental treatment used to improve the state of your smile. Whether your teeth are discolored, chipped, or misaligned, the simple placement of veneers onto your existing teeth immediately creates a healthier, more attractive smile that looks completely natural.
Dental veneers are extremely thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit the shape and size of the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can help you achieve a whiter, straighter smile without having to wear braces, tooth-whitening trays, or any other dental appliance.
Quickly Fix Flaws In Your Smile
Veneers have become extremely popular because they are a non-invasive, versatile treatment for correcting dental flaws. Dr. Singh and our team are trained to create veneers that perfect your smile and look completely natural.
Please contact our Phoenix dental office, and we will be happy to arrange a consultation with you to discuss the advantages of porcelain veneers. As with any other cosmetic dental treatment, veneers may not be appropriate for you, but we have many other options that will allow you to achieve the perfect smile of your dreams.
Missing teeth are a problem because they certainly impact your appearance, but can also lead to a number of other oral health problems. It is in your best interest to have missing teeth replaced as soon as possible.
Fortunately, at Singh Smile Care, we do have a number of solutions for missing teeth:
Dental Bridges: Bridges are a dental restoration that have been used to replace missing teeth for many years. While they are not a permanent tooth replacement, they fill the space left by a missing tooth, preventing surrounding teeth from shifting out of place
Partial and Full Dentures: Dentures are a removable appliance that provides the function and appearance of natural teeth. They no longer look fake and unnatural because significant improvements in materials and techniques allow us to create dentures that fit well and look great.
Dental Implants: There are many reasons why dental implants are the tooth replacement option favored by dentists and most patients. Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement that is secured to your jaw. This creates a replacement root that provides stability and function not found with bridges or dentures.
Finding the Best Tooth Replacement Option
There are a lot of variables in choosing the right type of tooth replacement, and Dr. Singh will be happy to consult with you about which is best for your specific needs. Please contact our office to arrange a convenient appointment.
Here in Arizona, it is required by law that we take your bitewing x-rays once per year. Your full-mouth series, which is made up of 18 pictures, and/or panoramic x-ray will need to be taken at Singh Smile Care about every three to five years. This is required by every dentist who practices in the state of Arizona.
X-rays are an essential part of dental treatment because we have to know what is happening inside your teeth. With the help of x-rays, we can detect and treat problems like decay long before it damages the tooth and causes you discomfort.
Some people have concerns about the safety of x-rays, but we can assure you that modern dental x-rays have been found to be very safe. In reality, we are always being exposed to small amounts of radiation from a number of sources on a daily basis.
Dental X-Rays and Safety
Dental x-rays emit only a small dose of radiation that is focused specifically on a certain tooth or area of your mouth. In addition, we provide every patient with a full, lead-lined apron to further reduce the risk of exposure.
We don’t want you to feel any hesitation about having regular x-rays taken since they are an important part of your oral health care. Please do not hesitate to contact our Phoenix dental office if you have questions or concerns.
