Most people don’t look forward to tests. However, a short quiz is anything but stressful, and ours can help you see just how much you know about your smile, and about dental care! Have fun with these questions, and feel free to contact our office with yours.
What can cosmetic dentistry do for you?
Answer: E. Of course, there are many reasons that a person may give for seeing a cosmetic dentist. However, the results of their treatment may be much greater than they expect. When your smile looks good, you feel good. It’s that simple! And studies indicate that an attractive smile is not only a career asset but also advantageous for social and romantic relationships.
How can a tooth be straightened?
Answer: D. To be technically correct, only braces can officially straighten a tooth. However, dentists often use crowns or porcelain veneers to make a tooth appear straight. Veneers are also used to make short teeth look longer, to close gaps, and to perfect the shape of teeth.
True or False
Invisalign cannot correct malocclusion.
False. When Invisalign first originated, this aligner system was approved for the correction of slight misalignment; a turned tooth or a gap. After years of research and development, Invisalign has evolved into an excellent method for correcting mild to moderate overbite, underbite, and crossbite, too.
Laser teeth whitening is no more effective than other professional methods.
True. A few years ago, patients were seeing a lot of dentists advertise (expensive) laser whitening treatments. This method never really took hold, and for a good reason: it is not any better than what was already available. We offer both in-office whitening, where you sit back and leave the “heavy lifting” to us and also home whitening using professional-grade whitening gel. Both of these processes are efficient, and each can reach the same gorgeous level of radiance.
We enjoy having fun with our patients while attending to their dental needs. Stay up to date with your exams and cleanings by scheduling your next visit with us.
