This Is The Year For A Beautiful Smile in Yuma!

Winter Haven, CA Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not familiar with the latest dental advances, you might not realize what cosmetic dentistry can do for you. At The Yuma Dentist, we can transform your smile from ordinary into something beautiful.

Cosmetic dentistry is dedicated to improving the appearance of teeth. The goal is to create positive change to your teeth and smile. Here are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry services that can make a big difference in your appearance:

Teeth whitening. In-office teeth whitening far surpasses anything you can get from a toothpaste tube or whitening strips. We use Glo Whitening that uses LED lights to transform your smile.

Porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can cover crooked or misshapen teeth, or teeth have have become dull over the years. Veneers have been used for nearly a century.

Dental implants. Missing a tooth? Dental implants look and function like a natural tooth. Because a titanium post is implanted in your jaw, where a tooth root once was, they have the added advantage of preventing bone loss.

We offer the full range of cosmetic dental procedures to provide you with a beautiful smile. Visit our smile gallery to see what cosmetic dentistry from The Yuma Dentist can do for you.

Keep Your Mouth Happy! Oral Hygiene in Yuma

Yuma Teeth Bleaching

At the Yuma Family Dentist, we encourage all our patients patients to keep up with their oral hygiene so maintain optimum oral health. A happy mouth is not only a healthy mouth but one that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods.

Healthy oral habits benefit our taste buds as well as our smiles. Here are some recommendations to help you better enjoy all the flavors and textures that can make each meal a delight.

1) Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly. Adequate saliva is also necessary for avoiding cavities and gum disease.

2) Steer clear of processed food with artificial flavors. They’re high in fat and salt, and will quickly desensitize you to subtle, healthy flavors.

3) Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are bad for a lot of reasons. One that gets overlooked sometimes is that smoking dulls your taste buds. Olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently from smoking.

In addition to healthy teeth and keen taste buds, we want our patients to have the beautiful smile they have always desired. If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, veneers, or dental implants, please contact The Yuma Dentist.

Ahead of the Curve: Beautiful Smiles in Yuma

Crown lengthening Somerton

Our dental patients with new, beautiful smiles know about the latest cosmetic dental procedures we use, here at the Yuma Dentist. In this post, we’ll describe a few of them.

At the Yuma Dentist, we stay ahead of the curve with the latest in dental technology. This includes teeth whitening techniques, porcelain veneers, and implant-anchored dentures.

It includes digital X-Rays, too. Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. Realtime digital X-Rays we use at Yuma Dentistry help us more easily spot and treat oral problems, including emerging cavities and bone recession. Digital X-Rays require far less radiation exposure than previous X-Ray technology, and are easier to store and access.

Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in myriad procedures including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canals, teeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of dental decay. Laser procedures are easier on the patient and require shorter healing times.

The future of dentistry is here today, at the Yuma Family Dentist.

Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

Somerton cosmetic smile makeover

Hello Yuma! Welcome to the Yuma Family Dentist dental blog. Let’s talk about smile redesigns. Some patients wonder if  the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a brilliant smile.

Generally, however, a complete cosmetic dental smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile transformation. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

I am  Dr. Franklin Hulme. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry in Yuma, AZ since 2012. Performing successful smile makeovers makes my profession extremely fulfilling. Patients who plan to receive a smile makeover should take their time choosing a dentist to perform it. I invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your needs and wishes. During the consultation, I can tell you about my extensive experience and show you before and after pictures of satisfied patients.

When I design a custom smile makeover, I study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to a smile makeover achieves awesome results and sets our practice apart.

Versatile Veneers For A Vivid Smile

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry in Yuma Have you ever wished you could quickly attach perfectly shaped, dazzling white front surfaces to your teeth? Guess what? You can! With porcelain veneers, you can eliminate smile imperfections in just one visit to your outstanding Yuma cosmetic dental office.

The innovative porcelain veneer is one of the most versatile items in a cosmetic dentist’s toolbox. Veneers turn unattractive smiles into beautiful smiles with minimal disruption to existing tooth structure. They are quicker and usually less expensive than complete crowns in Yuma but are made with the same durable, translucent porcelain.

It’s no that wonder that a very large percentage of people in the public eye have porcelain veneers. An actress can receive a perfect smile in the morning and appear on a talk show that evening. A supermodel can permanently remedy a discolored tooth rapid and pose for photos right after leaving her dental office. A local television news anchor can have his teeth perfectly aligned in a couple hours and report news that same day.

I am Franklin Hulme at Yuma Family Dentist. I have handled hundreds of veneer placements. Perhaps you should consider veneers as the best way to achieve your sensational smile.
