Dental Implants Can Give Your Smile the Beauty It Needs

June 15, 2015

Dental implants can change your life.So, you have a missing tooth problem. It’s okay, there are a lot of patients that are in your shoes. Missing teeth can be brought about by many factors, but it’s important to do something about it. Missing teeth can be downright terrible for your oral health. There are plenty of reasons why, and we’ll get into those a little later. Missing teeth can be the difference between a healthy and unhealthy mouth. Those spaces that are left by missing teeth are like parties for bacteria to attend. Any type of bacteria that sits and gets comfortable in your mouth can lead to infections and other dental problems that can become quite costly and detrimental to your overall health. At our office in Monroe, LA, we specialize in offering dental implants for our patients that are struggling with missing teeth. They can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the horror that missing teeth can present appearance-wise.

Dental implants can give your mouth the health and stability it needs so you can smile beautifully and comfortably for years to come.

As part of their dental training, your general dentist is actually trained to perform a number of oral surgeries. This can be an advantage because you won’t need to find a specialist and won’t have to go to another office.

Using Dental Insurance Benefits Before the End of the Year in Monroe

October 31, 2013

It may seem hard to believe, but 2013 is rapidly coming to a close. Before the year is over, the staff at Dr. King Scott’s office recommends that our patients take the time to review their insurance plans to make sure they took full advantage of their dental insurance benefits this year.

If you’ve been delaying a dental checkup appointment, now is a good time to come in because this is one of the services covered by most dental insurance plans. This is a fundamental component of good oral health. Also, if you’ve been putting off any dental work and it’s either covered by your plan or you’ve met your deductible, now is the time to schedule those appointments. Your plan’s coverage will not roll over at the end of the year, so any benefits that you do not use will be lost.

Every dental insurance plan is different, so it’s important to check with your insurance company to make sure you fully understand everything that’s available to you. You can also call our office for additional clarifications. We want to make sure that our patients are keeping their smiles shining bright by taking full advantage of their dental benefits. The end of the year is often a busy time filled with holidays and other events, so make sure you schedule your appointment today.

Dr. King Scott Restores Smiles with Dental Implant Solutions

October 21, 2013

If you’re missing many or all of your teeth from damage or decay, you know how important it is to have them replaced. A full, healthy set of teeth is essential. Maybe you have dentures and aren’t satisfied with the fit, or know you need dentures and aren’t excited about the prospect. At Dr. King Scott’s dental office we offer implant-secured dentures for a better smile restoration experience.

Dental implants are a secure tooth replacement method because it’s anchored to your jawbone by titanium posts. These posts bond with your jawbone, mimicking the root of a natural tooth. This is important because not only does it create a firm base for your restoration, but it also helps to retain more of your jawbone.

Maybe you’re missing more than a few teeth and are wondering what kinds of options are available for you. Implant- secured dentures are another great way we can use dental implants to help restore even more smiles. Since your dentures will be anchored to your smile, they’ll fit securely, leaving you free from the risk of slippage or embarrassing incidents.

If your smile is impacted by a lack of teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible. We can help with dental implants and implant-secured dentures for a secure smile replacement solution. Give us a call to learn more and see if this is the right choice for your smile.

Porcelain Crowns from Dr. Scott Can Complete Your Smile

October 7, 2013

Here at Dr. King Scott’s dental office, we offer a variety of choices when it comes to restorative dental work. One of our most popular choices is porcelain crowns. This restoration allows us to restore health to a damaged or decayed tooth while still allowing it to blend seamlessly with your smile.

If you have a tooth that is cracked, broken, decayed or worn, it’s important to restore it with a porcelain crown. A crown fits snugly over your tooth like a cap to help restore strength and protect your tooth against further damage. It will also help to keep your bite in proper alignment.

Porcelain is a great choice of material for your crown restoration because they’re carefully color matched to resemble the rest of your smile. No one will be able to tell that you’ve had any dental work performed. Also, this material is durable and long-lasting, so with proper care and maintenance it will last you a long time.

If you have a tooth that’s suffering from damage and decay, don’t put it off any longer. Give us a call today so we can get started on your porcelain crown. This is an important restorative dental procedure that helps keep your smile healthy.

Porcelain Veneers from Dr. Scott

August 1, 2013

Are you dissatisfied when you look in the mirror? Do you find yourself wanting a more attractive smile but aren’t sure where to start. At Dr. King Scott’s office, we recommend you consider one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry options, porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of quality porcelain that are attached to the front of your teeth, allowing Dr. Scott to change the appearance of your smile. If your teeth are chipped, stained, cracked, misshaped or gapped, this can help refresh your smile immediately. Porcelain reflects light in a similar manner to your natural tooth enamel, so your new smile will look natural and seamlessly work with your face.

We use Empress and Velspath porcelain veneers. They’re carefully crafted to enhance your face and your appearance. With proper care, your porcelain veneers will last you a long time so your beautiful smile will also be a lasting one.

If you’re in search of a simple way to give yourself a new look, consider porcelain veneers. This cosmetic dentistry solution will give you a beautiful smile without requiring a lot of work. Call us today to see if this treatment is right for you.
