If you are looking for one of the best North Royalton cosmetic dentists, look no further than North Royalton Family Dental.Cosmetic dentistry in North Royalton has social and medical benefits.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic Dentistry is a general dentistry term that covers dental implants, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and full mouth restorations. Some people think cosmetic dentistry only improves the look of the smile, but it benefits a lot more! Here are a few reasons why a cosmetic dentist in North Royalton could change your life:

Social Benefits

Discolored or yellowing teeth can affect the way you feel about yourself. It can become difficult to socialize, smile, or even talk if you are self-conscious about your teeth. A cosmetic dentistry procedure like teeth whitening, crown lengthening or reshaping, veneers, or dental implants could help you feel more confident.

Not only can a cosmetic dentistry procedure change the way you feel about yourself, but it can help you further your career! Studies show that individuals with bright, happy smiles in a job interview have a better chance of landing the job and furthering social connections. Dr. Nathaniel M. Taylor and our staff at North Royalton Family Dental are the some of the best in North Royalton and we’d love to help you get the smile you’ve always dreamed of!

Health Benefits

Additionally, patients with a misaligned bite and crooked teeth often report having severe headaches. A solution to those awful headaches is simple with a cosmetic dental procedure. Let North Royalton Family Dental help you in getting a smile you love and getting rid of chronic headaches.

Top 10 Things Your Dentist Wants You To Know

North Royalton Family Dental is here to help you keep your teeth beautiful and healthy!

Have you ever heard the saying “Life is short. Smile while you still have teeth.”? Well life is also wonderful and it’s even more wonderful when you have a beautiful smile. Here’s some advice to help keep those pearly whites healthy and strong and stay in your mouth for a long time to come.

  1. Oral Hygiene is #1

    The state of your oral health is a good indicator of your overall health. Healthy teeth and gums are directly related to having a healthy cardiovascular system.

  2. Floss Daily

    Flossing is so important! We know it can be easy to forget to do it and it’s easy to think that it won’t matter. But it matters so much. Do it every day. It will take out food particles and plaque that can cause cavities and other dental issues.

  3. We Understand Your Worries

    The dentist office can be a nerve racking experience for some. It’s important to be confident in the dentist office you are choosing and there are many choices out there. Let the friendly faces at North Royalton Family Dental help you to have a calm and enjoyable experience.

  4. Teach Them Young

    Children learn by example. Show your kids how important and fun it can be to take care of their teeth. It is a life-long skill, that if done correctly, will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

  5. X-Rays are Safe

    Dental x-rays use an incredibly low amount of radiation. The risk of skipping x-rays is greater than having them taken at regular checkups. They should be an important part of maintaining your dental health.

  6. Chew Gum!

    Well, gum that contains xylitol that is. Chewing gum which contains xylitol has been proven to actually help prevent cavities.

  7. Go to the Dentist Often

    Stay current with your dental checkups and procedures. Remember, your dental health is a good indicator of your overall health. Your mouth will thank you.

  8. Don’t Ignore Bleeding Gums

    Bleeding gums can be a sign of something worse going on and can be the first sign of gum disease. Give us a call and we can determine if it is a sign of something more serious.

  9. Say No to Soft Drinks

    Unfortunately, soda is not very good for the health of your teeth. The ingredients can erode and weaken your teeth. If you must drink it, remember to rinse and brush afterward.

  10. Eat a Healthy Diet

    What doesn’t a healthy diet help with, right? Eating foods generally considered to be healthy will minimize the chance of getting cavities and can help promote healthy gums.

We want to see your beautiful smile. Call North Royalton Family Dental today and we will make sure you have an amazing experience.

The Dangers of Over-Whitening

If you whiten your teeth too much with drugstore kits, there are some risks of over-whitening.

Over the past decade or so teeth whitening kits have become very popular. It seems like everyone wants to whiten their teeth at least a few shades. Everywhere you look drugstores have teeth whitening kits that are very accessible and cheap. These kits that you can find at the store too often contain harsh and harmful chemicals that can hurt your dental health. There are many concerns and side effects that come from this kind of teeth whitening, which can include:

  • tooth sensitivity
  • gum irritation
  • too soft or rough tooth surface
  • demineralization
  • risk of tooth fracture
  • color change of dental restorations

Why is it not safe?

It seems that the #1 complaint from this type of teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. That means that your teeth are not just sensitive while using these whitening strips but also while you are out in the environment and are made more sensitive by the food and drinks that you consume. It can make for some very unpleasant days and without proper care that sensitivity can just get worse.

The whitening trays found at drugstores are meant for teeth, not our gums. When these harsh chemicals get on gums they will cause stress and irritation on that tissue. Also if you are more likely to get canker sores the whitening solution can make them much worse.

Here at North Royalton Family Dental we believe that your smile should not only look great but feel good as well. By continuing to whiten your teeth without the proper supervision and tools you are asking for continued tooth pain and problems.

A Safer Alternative

In-office teeth whitening treatments are much safer and much more pleasant. You can also see the results in less time. Our North Royalton cosmetic dentist can help with your teeth whitening needs. Certain foods, drinks and habits can cause the discoloration of your teeth and we will work together to make a plan to avoid staining in the future. We will keep a record of your teeth so you will be able to see your progress over time. The procedure will be done in our comfortable office and can take up to an hour. We are confident that you will be very pleased and surprised with how fast your results will come. Ditch the harmful, drugstore teeth whitening trays and come in to our office today to find the safe, simple way to whiten your teeth.
