Gummy Smile?

Gummy Smile? Many cosmetic dentistry patients with a gummy smile undergo crown lengthening surgery to bring proper balance and symmetry to their smile. Gum tissue and, in some cases, bone is removed to expose more of the visible part of a tooth. It is a safe procedure that does not affect healthy tooth structure.

A ‘gummy smile’ is a term used to describe a smile with teeth that appear too short because an unusual amount of bone and soft tissue hide part of the crown. Our cosmetic dental patients who have opted for crown lengthening love how their new perfect smile looks and feels. Some of our crown lengthening patients also choose teeth whitening for an extra-dazzling smile!

Crown lengthening is not used solely for cosmetic reasons. When a tooth is injured and breaks at the gum line or if a filling or crown comes off a tooth that contains decay, crown lengthening makes additional tooth structure accessible for further restorative work. It is also used to treat some types of periodontal disease.

The surgery can be performed by a general dentist, periodontist or oral surgeon.

If you are interested in crown lengthening or other cosmetic dental procedures and live in the Custer, area, schedule an exam by calling 605-593-9821. We are conveniently located at 141 N 5th St in Custer. When you come in, we can show you before and after photos of South Dakota cosmetic dentistry patients who are enjoying their new smile.

    Those Baby Teeth Are A Big Deal

    Kid-friendly Custer dentist

    Today’s Custer children’s dental blog focuses on the issue of caring for baby teeth. Why would you take care of something that’s just going to fall out and be given to the tooth fairy? It’s a good question and it has a even better answer.

    Parents shouldn’t feel like they are wasting their time because baby teeth are more important than many people might think. Baby teeth are needed to keep the proper amount of space available for the permanent teeth that will come in later.

    Baby teeth are also invaluable in the development of clear speech. This is especially important for Custer parents who are dying to know what their child means when they point to something repeatedly and say ‘scklash’ or ‘grag-grag’.

    Having healthy baby teeth will also help your child develop a healthy diet because difficulty chewing can lead to the rejection of many different foods.

    And, finally, tooth decay and infection can be passed down from baby teeth to permanent teeth as they develop below them. That’s not what you want for the teeth that kids are going to have for the rest of their lives. You may be setting them up to need cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.We want our patients to have the best oral health possible. I also want them to look their best, so if you have any questions about a smile makeover or teeth whitening, give us a call at 605-593-9821.

    At Destination Dentistry we offer:

    sedation dentistry
    tooth-colored fillings
    cosmetic dentistry
    TMJ/TMD treatment

    A Toothache The Size Of Custer

    Custer Tooth Whitening Throbbing toothache pain for anyone can be absolutely intolerable. At the very least, milder toothache pain can cause you to skip certain foods. Severe toothache pain can be completely debilitating, forcing individuals to go to extreme measures to calm the pain.

    The most prevalent causes of a toothache include infection, decay, injury, or loss of a tooth. Tooth pain can occur after a tooth has been extracted or following oral surgery. I can determine the source of your toothache, and in most cases can provide nearly immediate relief.

    Of course, the best way to avert tooth pain is to visit your dentist often, and to care properly for your teeth including a consistent regimen of brushing and flossing.

    If you are experiencing toothache pain, please give me a call. Our staff is standing by, ready to help.

    Why Aren’t You Smiling?

    Custer Dentistry Hello, I’m Dr. Rebecca Kretschmar. Our dental practice is called Destination Dentistry. We are located at 141 N 5th St in Custer, and you can reach us by calling 605-593-9821.

    You can probably imagine why we look at smiles everywhere we go. Whether we are working with a dental patient, having dinner at our favorite restaurants, or attending a sporting event, we notice whether the people around us smile. Whenever we encounter someone with obvious tooth problems, we want to tell them about the procedures that can completely transform their frown into a healthy and beautiful smile.

    Are you one of those people who don’t want to show their teeth? we would love to talk to you about a smile makeover. Whatever your excuse is for not seeking dental treatment, we can discuss all of your concerns with you during a free consultation.

    Perhaps you are afraid of dental work. Have you ever considered oral conscious sedation? With sedation dentistry, even extensive treatment is virtually pain free. Sedation will calm your mind as well as the nerves in your mouth.

    Perhaps the cost of cosmetic dentistry is holding you back. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to talk to you about financing plans. It is important to remember that if your teeth are decayed, postponing treatment will cost more money in the long run. Filling a cavity is far more affordable dentistry than a root canal procedure or, in the case of an extracted tooth, a dental implant.

    You can contact our office at 605-593-9821 or online at https://www.destinationdentistry.net/. Our Custer family dental website contains information about all the general, restorative and aesthetic services we provide.

    We can transform your smile into one that you will want to show all the time!

    Re-Contour Your Teeth At Destination Dentistry

    Re-Contour Your Teeth At Destination Dentistry

    If your crooked, discolored teeth keep you from smiling and you feel like there is nothing you can do about it, please give us a call! Destination Dentistry have been giving the people of Custer something to smile about since 1978.

    If you are disappointed with the smile Mother Nature gave you, let me create the remarkable smile of your dreams. New procedures and cutting-edge materials make it possible to completely revamp and restyle your mouth

    If your teeth are uneven, Destination Dentistry has several options to correct that. We can re-contour your teeth by removing a small portion of your enamel to change the length or shape of your tooth. If more is required to improve your smile we can offer veneers or bonding.

    A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth, correcting cosmetic imperfections. They can last longer than dental bonding and preserve more natural tooth structure than crowns.

    Many patients have teeth that have become discolored by drinking colas, tea, or coffee. If you have stained or discolored teeth and dream of having pearly white teeth then check out the many teeth whitening options at Destination Dentistry.

    Stop hiding behind a timid smile. Take charge and let Destination Dentistry create a confident, beautiful smile.

    Ask us about CEREC Same Day Porcelain Crowns, family dentistry, and tooth-colored fillings.

    “A Healthier, Whiter Smile.”

    The Tea And Teeth Question

    Custer teeth bleaching best price

    What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea?
    Why, Denis, of course.

    Joking aside, a common concern for dental patients can be stained teeth. Today, let’s talk a little bit about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages including tea.

    Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Thorough daily rituals of oral cleaning are valuable for this. Tartar (which forms if the plaque remains on the teeth for over 24 hours) on the other hand will need to be removed in office during a teeth cleaning appointment. Either way, between cleanings a wise method for avoiding tea staining is to rinse with water after drinking tea or to eat something and then to be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

    If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, Destination Dentistry offers teeth whitening. Our other services include:
    cosmetic dentistry
    teeth whitening
    sedation dentistry
    TMJ/TMD treatment
    tooth-colored fillings

    The cost of living is going up. Let us share our competitive pricing, financial options and superb service with you. Cosmetic dentistry may be less costly than you think.
