Emergency Dentist

Dental problems can arise at any time, often outside of typical office hours. An unexpected blow to the mouth while playing sports or because of another form of trauma can chip or crack teeth, or knock them out entirely. A niggling sensation in a tooth can develop into a full-blown toothache, a painful condition that is impossible to ignore. Luckily, we are here to help you at Spokane Family Smiles.

Teeth Whitening

Are you happy with the appearance of your teeth, or do they look stained, dingy and discolored? It is rare to have gleaming white teeth and sometimes the color is down to genetics, but more often than not it owes a lot to lifestyle choices or is simply down to aging. Whatever the reason for tooth discoloration, teeth whitening is an easy and affordable way to get the whiter smile of your dreams. A quick search online or in your local drugstore will reveal a plethora of teeth whitening products, but if you truly care about your smile and want to ensure it remains strong and healthy, it is best to see a dentist and to have your teeth professionally whitened.

Someone is rarely lucky enough to have a perfect smile as it’s more often due to excellent cosmetic dentistry.

Dental ImplantsPick up any magazine or watch any TV program and you’ll notice everybody seems to have perfect teeth. However, the reality is often quite different as many people will lose one or more teeth as a result of trauma or dental problems like tooth decay or gum disease. Luckily, we live in an age where dental technology has advanced sufficiently to provide us with tooth replacements that look and feel and which function just like natural teeth. These replacements are called dental implants, and if you or someone close to you has suffered tooth loss, you will almost certainly know a bit about this treatment.

Contributed by DentalROI

InvisalignTraditional braces consist of heavy and highly visible metal brackets and wires. These braces may be fine when you are a kid, but treatment isn’t ideal for adults and especially for people who need to meet clients or customers frequently. This is where Invisalign can help because it’s an adult-oriented orthodontic system that discreetly straightens teeth.

Dental VeneersDental veneers are extremely thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain, custom-designed to cover up the front surfaces of teeth. You might also hear these restorations described as porcelain veneers or dental laminates. Although some veneers are made from tooth-colored composite resin, most are fabricated from some form of porcelain which is more durable and resistant to staining. Dental veneers are bonded onto the front of teeth and are designed to improve their appearance. You can use dental veneers to change the size, length, color or shape of teeth.
