Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

teeth whitening Comstock ParkWhen a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular in the Belmont,  Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI, areas, it’s natural to want to experience the dramatic results for yourself. However, responsible dental patients should know what the American Dental Association has to say regarding common cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening.

The ADA advises patients to meet with their dentist before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination that is in-depth will help your dentist to know if tooth whitening is for you. This is especially vital when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

Once you have agreed on a tooth whitening technique, your dentist can supervise your use of whichever bleaching agent you have chosen. This will help you to be sure that the frequency of use of your teeth whitener is never too high.

Or, you and your dentist may choose to have your teeth whitened in the office. Zoom in-office teeth whitening takes much less time than at-home whitening.

Also, if you are shopping for whitening tooth products at your favorite Grand Rapids, Walker, or Sparta drugstore, be sure to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Along with tooth whitening, there are many other innovative cosmetic dentistry procedures your dentist can recommend, which will help you achieve the dazzling smile you want. These include dental implants, bonding,veneers,  and more!

We are dedicated to oral health and happy patients. We help our cosmetic dental patients love their smile! If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 616-784-2377. A member of the friendly and thorough staff here at Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry would love to set up an appointment for you.

Using Nature As Our Guide At Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry In Comstock Park

Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull at Stewart of Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry perform complete smile re-designs that turn ordinary teeth (or even teeth with significant problems) into stunning smiles. If you have been considering a smile makeover, you probably want to know if you will still look like yourself.

The answer is “Yes! Only  better!” One of the reasons for this is because Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull use nature as a guide – nature at its best – when improving smiles. It is vital to bring multiple components into harmony when designing a fantastic smile makeover. Here are a few:

  • Tooth Shape – includes proportion and alignment
  • Tooth Size – this also includes the unique dimensions of the spaces between the teeth
  • Tooth Color – hue, value, intensity, and color variations between teeth
  • Tooth Bite – how upper and lower teeth fit together
  • Gumline – shape and color
  • Face Shape and Bone Structure
  • Lips – color, shape, size
  • Age
  • Gender

This list is not comprehensive, but gives you an idea of the complexity of what is considered. Though advanced cosmetic dentistry is multifaceted, it follows the esthetic principles expressed in naturally beautiful smiles.

You don’t have to worry about midlines and microesthetics because we are enthusiastic about the details. We invite you to schedule a complimentary smile design consultation to speak with Dr. Stewart or Dr. Hull about your current smile and the unforgettable smile you desire.

We can whiten, brighten, and straighten your smile!

Dental Crowns—Yesterday and Today

dentist-shining-smile

Dental crowns have been around for a couple of thousand years. Archeology suggests that the Etruscans experimented with crowns on teeth using ivory and bone as early as 700 B.C. By 200 A.D., gold crowns were used to make artificial teeth. Ancient Egyptians fashioned tooth replacements out of seashells and then hammered them into their gums.

Porcelain crowns were first used in the 1800s. With the refining of metal casting methods in the 1900s, crown dentistry advanced significantly.

Dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are cemented in place. Crowns are used to strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury. Crowns are also used to brighten and improve the appearance of one’s smile.

There are three common types of crowns are:

  1. All-porcelain (ceramic)
  2. Porcelain-fused-to-metal
  3. Gold

The material used is determined by several factors, depending on your unique situation. You will want to discuss this with Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull which option would be best for you.

If you suspect you need a crown, want to replace an old crown, or want to learn about other cosmetic dentistry procedures, call Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull  at 616-827-7019.  We have been serving patients in the Belmont, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI area since 1974. We can recommend the best tooth restoration or cosmetic dentistry option for you.

 

 


Tooth Whitening For Whiter Whites

smiling woman2One of the most common requests Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull get from their dental patients is whiter teeth.

We are happy to say that our Belmont, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.

Some patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. We offer a very safe and effective home whitening system that allows you to whiten your teeth at your convenience at home.

We also offer in-office teeth bleaching which can often be done in one visit. Grand Rapids residents who do in-office bleaching appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.

As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in Rockford, MI.

If you’re interested in any of these whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, please call Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry at 616-784-2377 and ask about our KöR whitening, Zoom whitening, or home whitening. Our friendly and thorough staff will schedule a cosmetic dental consultation at your convenience.

We hope to hear from you soon!

 


Dental Crowns For Replacing Weakened Or Damaged Teeth

dental crowns Comstock Park

It might surprise a lot of people to know that dental crowns have been used in dentistry for more than 2000 years. According to archeologists, the Etruscans experimented with crowns on teeth using ivory and bone as early as 700 B.C. By 200 A.D., materials became more sophisticated and they began using gold crowns to construct artificial teeth. There is evidence that the ancient Egyptians made tooth replacements out of seashells, shaping them and then hammering them into their gums.

Porcelain crowns were first used in the 1800s. After the refinement of metal casting methods in the 1900s, crown dentistry began to improve dramatically.

Today, crowns are strong, comfortable, and made to match your surrounding teeth.

Dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line and are cemented in place after the tooth is treated. Crowns are used to strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury. Crowns are also used to brighten and improve the appearance of one’s smile.

If you suspect you need a crown, want to replace an old crown, or want to learn about other cosmetic dentistry procedures, please call Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull at 616-827-7019. Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry is located at 769 York Creek Dr NW in Comstock Park.

Find Out How Your Smile Can Benefit From Tooth-Colored Fillings

tooth colored fillings

Most adults will have at least one cavity in their lives, so it’s no surprise that dealing with tooth decay is one of the most common problems addressed by dentists. When teeth have been damaged by decay, dental fillings are generally used to fill in the spot of the decay to prevent it from getting worse. In the past, a mixture—also called “amalgam”—of metals was used, but today we have other options, including composite, tooth-colored fillings.

About Dental Fillings

Dental fillings have been used for about the past 150 years. They are small dental restorations that are used for treating cavities, which are also called dental “caries.” Metal amalgam used to be the filling of choice until the 1990s and 2000s when composite materials began to be vastly improved. Now the benefits of tooth-colored fillings in Comstock Park have become quite well known and popular for dental restorations.

Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

There are a number of advantages that only tooth-colored fillings provide, including:

  • They are more attractive than metal fillings. Because they are color-matched to the rest of your teeth, tooth-colored fillings blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. They will not discolor with time either. You can smile with confidence at your cavity-free appearance. No one will even know the restoration is there!
  • They are less destructive. With tooth-colored fillings, more of the natural tooth can be kept intact than with metal fillings. This helps to maintain the tooth’s natural strength.
  • They are durable. Tooth-colored fillings last a long time; with the proper care, they can last for as long as a decade or beyond.

Learn More About the Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Treatment For Stress-Induced Jaw Pain In Comstock Park

 

stress-induced jaw pain in Comstock ParkEveryday problems cause some Comstock Park people to respond by clenching their jaw or grinding their teeth. For example, daily commuting in Belmont, Cedar Springs, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI can take a physical toll. All the traffic, noise, and perpetual road construction causes some people to grind their teeth as they navigate the sea of cars on packed highways.

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can cause a painful condition called TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. TMD is often mistakenly called ‘TMJ’: the acronym for Temporomandibular Joint.

Your jaw is able to open and close thanks to many jaw muscles and the intricate temporomandibular joints. These joints allow for fluid mobility as you chew, speak, and yawn.

Damage to these essential joints can lead to extreme pain in the jaw, head, face and neck. Pain may be experienced on one or both sides of the jaw.

TMD is an often misdiagnosed condition because facial pain can result from a variety of issues, not just damage to the temporomandibular joints. Sinus infections, tooth decay, and facial injuries can cause jaw pain. A correct diagnosis is the first step in treating TMD.

At Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry we have been diagnosing and treating TMD since 1974, working with other specialists when needed. If you are experiencing clicking, popping, or discomfort in your jaw, call Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry today for a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull are dedicated to providing high-quality dentistry to the residents of Belmont, Cedar Springs, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI.

Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry not only treat TMD, but we redesign smiles with unprecedented cosmetic dental smile makeovers. Furthermore, we offer general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and porcelain veneers.

Your smile is contagious! Make sure it is healthy and beautiful. Call Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry today at 616-784-2377 to schedule a consultation or examination.
