For our patients that have or plan to have cosmetic restorative dental treatment, our hygienist uses a specialized polishing agent on your porcelain veneers to assure the veneers remain as shiny and new as they were on the day they were bonded into place.
Bleeding gums is quite prevalent, as is the incidence of early gum disease. In fact, approximately one in every two adults suffers from mild gum disease, known as gingivitis. While most of us aspire to keep our teeth and gums healthy, your gums can be prone to gum infection if not cared for properly. If gingivitis persists, it can progress to periodontitis, a chronic infection of the supporting tissues of your teeth. Given the potential link between periodontitis and systemic health problems, prevention is an important step in maintaining overall health.
