August 30, 2013

Is your smile looking dull or yellowed? Do you find yourself wishing you had a dazzling white smile like all the celebrities? At Dr. King Scott’s office we can help with teeth whitening. This is a great cosmetic dentistry solution that can immediately help you to appear younger.

Teeth can become stained for a variety of reasons, including aging, tobacco, alcohol, foods, and even some medications. The specific reasons don’t matter because we can help brighten your smile with teeth whitening. We offer a variety of professional at-home teeth whitening systems, including Boost, Opalescence, LifeLike and more.

Dr. King Scott will determine the right system for your smile and will create a custom whitening tray. You’ll fill the trays with the special bleaching gel, wear as directed and watch your teeth become white and beautiful. While you’ll see results right away, full results will be achieved in about two weeks.

At-home teeth whitening systems are a great way to brighten your smile on your own time. There’s no extra dental visits needed, added privacy, and since your teeth will whiten gradually there’s better a better control over the shade than with in-office teeth whitening.

Receive Expert Treatment for your TMJ Disorder in West Monroe, LA

February 5, 2013

In the dentist’s office, you hear about all sorts of common oral health problems, from cavities to gum disease to discoloration. One of the conditions that can be the most frustrating and uncomfortable, though, affects an area you may not first think of when considering dental care – the jaw. Your jaws are crucial tools that enable you to speak and eat, and they’re supported by small joints (commonly known as temporomandibular joints) that connect them to the skull and an intricate system of nerves and muscles.  However, when these joints are even slightly misaligned, it can cause debilitating symptoms. These symptoms are commonly known as temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder. Thankfully, here at our West Monroe practice, Dr. King Scott and his team are able to provide effective and efficient treatment for TMJ disorder, thanks to both Dr. Scott’s specially honed expertise and our commitment to providing well-rounded and personalized dental health care to patients of all ages.

How do I know if I suffer from TMJ disorder?

Take a look at these common symptoms of TMJ disorder:

  • Constant, excessive headaches
  • Popping or clicking jaw joints
  • Persistent pain in the face, neck, head, shoulders, or back
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Jaw discomfort when chewing, or an inability to fully open or close one’s mouth

If one or more of these sound familiar, then Dr. Scott would like to see you so that he can inspect your jaws for signs of TMJ disorder.

What kind of treatment can you offer me?

Many dentists can offer help to those seeking relief from TMJ disorder. However, Dr. Scott has set himself apart by studying TMJ therapy and bruxism in-depth at The Dawson Academy –and The Piper Center – both in St. Petersburg, FL; his care is precise, informed, and most important of all, carefully personalized to fit your unique needs as a patient who deserves relief. He can prescribe a custom-made mouth appliance to correct TMJ disorder, and has been bringing smiles to beleaguered patients’ faces for years with minimally invasive TMJ splint therapy. He can discuss your unique case with you in more depth once you come in for a consultation.

Don’t suffer in silence any longer – let Dr. Scott and his team give your teeth a break with expert TMJ treatment. Call our West Monroe, LA practice today to schedule a consultation. We also serve patients from Ruston, Rayville, Farmersville, Columbia, Winnsboro, Delhi, South Arkansas, and all of greater North Louisiana.

Fix Your Smile and Feel Great Again with Tooth-Colored Fillings from Dr. Scott

January 23, 2013

It’s always frustrating to go in for a routine dental check-up, only to be told you have a cavity. Cavities are small, sneaky, and potentially destructive – if left untreated for too long, they can grow to threaten the health of your entire tooth. The idea of having dark, metal-based fillings put in, though, can be a tough one to swallow, especially if you’ve worked hard to create a professional image focused around a flawless smile. Dark fillings are distracting and obvious, alerting everyone you come in contact with that you’ve had dental work done, which could lead to a variety of potentially embarrassing situations. Here in West Monroe, LA, we understand your hesitation – you deserve to be able to keep your teeth perfectly healthy and happy without having to sacrifice the cosmetic beauty of your smile. Thankfully, Dr. King Scott is committed to providing you with effective and personalized service that puts your needs first. That’s why he’s happy to offer tooth-colored fillings as a restorative option at his West Monroe practice.

So what exactly are tooth-colored fillings, if they’re not made of metal?

Simple – they’re made of composite resin, a silicon-dioxide mixture that can be blended and mixed in order to match the exact shade of your natural teeth. Composite resin fillings have several advantages over traditional metal fillings: for instance, only you and Dr. Scott will have any idea that they’re there at all, resulting in a perfectly healthy smile with zero of the embarrassment.

In addition, tooth-colored fillings last just as long, if not longer, than traditional fillings, and actually work much better with your natural teeth, deterring further breakage as well as allowing us to keep more of the natural structure intact. Our team strongly believes in conservative dentistry – we want to help you hold on to as much of your original teeth as you can. With tooth-colored fillings, we can accomplish that goal much more easily than ever before.

If you have a cavity that needs treatment, don’t hesitate – Dr. Scott and his excellent team want to keep you safe and smiling with the help of composite resin, tooth-colored fillings. Call our West Monroe, LA practice today to schedule an appointment. We also serve patients from Ruston, Rayville, Farmersville, Columbia, Winnsboro, Delhi, South Arkansas, and all of greater North Louisiana.
