  • *Irregularly shaped teeth
  • *Lost teeth
  • *Metal amalgam fillings that show when you smile

If you find that you have pain and bleeding following brushing your teeth, or have sensitivity with hot or cold water, or sweet foods, we can help! Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert Arizona, wants to help with all your cosmetic dentistry needs, but also general dentistry to ensure the best functioning and the cleanest teeth possible. Having sensitive teeth can be a pain that is irritating, and one that is unnecessary. There are ways to help, and one way is to recognize causes for sensitive teeth.

Causes

Our daily living may help to increase the sensitivity in our teeth, but if we don’t know what that is, we cannot help it. Some issues causing sensitive teeth include:

  •   *Cavities
  •   *Exposed root
  •   *Gum disease
  •   *Worn down enamel
  •   *Tooth fractures

Whatever the cause of your sensitivity, Lifetime Family Dental can bring relief.

Ways to Help Sensitivity

To build a stronger protective layer around your teeth, there are several things you and your dentist can do to help decrease sensitivity. These include:

  •   *Fillings: For the bacteria that combines with the leftover food particles in your mouth, which creates holes in the tooth, these can be corrected through fillings by your dentist to decrease sensitivity.
  •   *Fluoride: Following in office fluoride treatments, gel impressions of your teeth are taken so you can continue regular treatments at home.
  •   *Gum Grafting: A periodontist will place gum tissue grafts where the gum has receded due to disease or trauma.
  •   *Root Canal: When a cavity or fracture causes an abscess in the tooth, a root canal can be done to improve the strength and viability of your tooth.
  •   *Toothpaste: A sensitive toothpaste can do wonders to help decrease the pain. It is important to get a recommended toothpaste from your friendly dentist that is specific to your needs.

Your best solution to any sensitivity is first discussing it with your dentist to rule out any serious issues. The irritation or pain is unnecessary for you to live with. Come see Lifetime Family Dental today to help with sensitivity and get your pain free smile back!

Testimony

You can take our word for it when we say we have excellent rapport with our patients, but you can also hear it straight from a patient themselves.

  • I went to this location off a recommendation from a friend, as they enjoyed their experience, so I figured I’d try it out. On my way there, I almost got sick to my stomach driving to the dentist because I dislike [dentists] so much! But that feeling changed as soon as I walked through the door. The staff at the front desk was wonderful and welcoming. When I sat down in the chair to get x-rays, they first make an effort to get to know you. Lifetime Family Dental has that personal connection with their patients. Next, Dr Norton explained everything that would need to be done. There was absolutely no pressure to do anything at this point, but I went ahead and got some fillings done. As I was getting the recommended work done, they let me watch Netflix to help time go by. I walked out to pay and they broke everything down to better explain what the Doc went over earlier. This was by far my best experience at a dentist office and I will definitely be back! I highly recommend this place to anyone! -Highly Encouraged Patient

When it comes to a new experience with the dentist, we would love to build a new idea of what going to the dentist means for you. There is no reason to fear the dentist or be scared of the procedures. We are a fair, friendly, and reasonable dental office that provides the best oral health practices possible. Our goal is ensure that you have the healthiest teeth and we will do our best to help you avoid time consuming and costly procedures through great preventative medicine. Come see us today to let us help you relax and smile!

Here at Lifetime Family Dental, we pride ourselves on the positive change we can help create through cosmetic dentistry. We want to help you understand the ins and outs of cosmetic dentistry and share our passion for the creativity and positivity that comes from it.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Essentially, cosmetic dentistry helps to focus on building the positive appearance of one’s smile. It helps to build confidence through improving the areas of your smile that individuals may be less than pleased with. With cosmetic dentistry, the services may not be to affect the functionality of the teeth or mouth, but rather the aesthetic look. It is less a necessity, but more a desired service. There are several areas that cosmetic dentistry address.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

With cosmetic dentistry, there are various options for ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Each individual may have different needs and desires for what they are looking for. Cosmetic dentistry services include:

-Composite Bonding

-Dental Veneers

-Dental Implants

-Teeth Whitening

-Inlays/Onlays

-Full Mouth Reconstruction

What to Expect in Consultation

The initial consultation will help you gain understanding of what treatment moving forward looks like for your specific needs. You will be able to establish a connection with your dentist, and help them understand what you do or do not like about your smile. It will be a time of gathering information about your teeth, your past and present concerns and specific treatment options that best fit your needs. A few areas that may be addressed during consultation may include:

-Prior dental history, and dental records

-Impressions of your upper and lower teeth

-Discussion of color for your teeth

-Shapes and sizes of desired teeth

 

Your consultation will be a time to collaborate with your dentist. You will be able to create a treatment plan together, one that you are happy with and that is able to be done by your capable dentist.
