Dental Crowns North Palm Beach Residents Prefer

August 14, 2015

Woman relaxes as she receives the dental crowns north palm beach residents trustImagine taking a bite of your favorite crunchy or chewy food. Everything seems fine, but then, a sharp pain shoots through your mouth. You find yourself chewing on a piece of your own tooth. Dental cracking and breaking occurs relatively frequently, and you’d be surprised how many patients choose not to restore these problems right away. However, over time these cracked and broken teeth become susceptible to tooth decay and root canal infections as bacteria is able to directly affect the inner layers of your tooth. In the past, restoring a broken tooth was considered too timely and ineffective, so patients would often have the tooth pulled. At Juno Beach Smiles, we practice conservative dentistry which means we always attempt to preserve natural tooth structure, but we are also a cosmetic dentist which means we want your smile to look as good as it feels after restoration. That’s why for severely cracked and broken teeth or teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, we recommend porcelain or metal supported porcelain dental crowns. If you have a tooth in need of repair, call Juno Beach Smiles to find out more about how dental crowns can give you back your beautiful smile.

Preserve Your Good Health by Replacing Old Metal Fillings with New Tooth Colored Fillings in Juno Beach, FL

December 24, 2014

stk103113corAre you walking around with a mouthful of metal? If you are one of the millions of patients with multiple metal (amalgam) dental fillings, you could be putting your dental and overall health at risk. While metal fillings were once the only choice for dental fillings, new tooth colored fillings are fast becoming the more popular restoration method. That’s because tooth colored fillings are more naturally looking and are better able to protect your long term health. For the modern dental restorations you deserve, make an appointment to replace your old metal fillings with new tooth colored fillings from Juno Beach Smiles today. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley can help you protect your long-term health and wellbeing. Juno Beach Smiles is the trusted restorative dentistry for patients throughout Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach, and the surrounding communities.

How Are Tooth Colored Fillings Made?

Tooth colored fillings are made from a composite of tooth-colored plastic and glass.

Why Replace Old Metal (Amalgam) Fillings with New Tooth Colored Fillings?

  • Health Dangers: Metal fillings are made of about 50% mercury. Mercury is a dangerous neuro-toxin. Symptoms associated with prolonged mercury exposure include: memory loss, auto immune disorders, fatigue, tremors, and cognitive impairment.
  • Cracking and Sensitivity: Aged metal fillings can crack and partly detach causing sensitivity or pain where cracks are deep. Cracking close to tooth nerves can be particularly discomforting.
  • Bite Force: With tooth colored fillings, your bite force when chewing is distributed more evenly across the tooth structure, which reduces the likelihood of tooth cracking.
  • Preventive Care: Tooth colored fillings allow Dr. Keuning to see underlying tooth decay more readily because of visible staining around the edges of the filling. With metal fillings, tarnish and corrosion make it much more difficult to identify new decay.

What are Amalgam Fillings and What Should I Know About Them?

June 10, 2014

Shutterstock Happy Male Patient with StaffDental fillings are among the most commonly performed restorative dentistry procedure in America, allowing patients with tooth decay to prevent further damage to their smiles in a way that simultaneously preserves the natural tooth. At Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic Dentistry in Juno Beach, FL, Dr. Greg K. Riley and Dr. Duane E. Keuning provide patients with not only the most advanced restorative dentistry options available, but also with advice, information, and insight regarding the treatments we plan for each of our patients.

Amalgam Fillings Vs. Composite Fillings

Amalgam fillings are composed of a mixture of metals, including silver, mercury, tin, and copper. The alloy is placed within the prepared cavity of a decayed tooth to prevent further decay. Because of its composition, an amalgam filling is susceptible to microscopic changes in size and shape when exposed to extreme hot or cold. This may result in tiny fissures in the tooth over time, thereby compromising the structural stability of the tooth as a whole.

Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are made of a composite resin that closely matches the shade of the tooth it fills. The majority of dentists agree that composite fillings are the preferred restorative option. In addition to the fact that they are more aesthetically agreeable, composite fillings stand up to changes in temperature better than amalgams. As with any of our procedures and treatments, our doctors are happy to explain the entire process before your fillings are placed, as well as the pros and cons of each type. We’re here to help you understand your dental care and to assist in your journey toward optimal oral health.

Schedule Your Appointment Today

Whether you currently have amalgam fillings and are interested in having them replaced with more aesthetically pleasing composite fillings or you are in need of a new restoration, we invite you to contact us today to schedule your appointment. Our doctors and staff will always welcome you with a warm, sincere smile and the ultimate in gentle chairside manner. Our conveniently located dental practice in Juno Beach, FL also happily serves patients in the surrounding areas, including North Palm Beach, Jupiter, Tequesta, Palm Beach Gardens, and more.

Another Cause of Decay and How It Can Be Treated

September 27, 2013

tooth-colored fillingsIn our previous post, we talked about what effect acid reflux can have on your smile. Today, we’d like to highlight a more common cause of decay and other oral health problems.

In most cases, tooth decay is caused by the way certain kinds of bacteria react to food, especially foods high in sugar. These bacteria react by producing acid, which encourages the growth of new bacteria and then more acid. As bacteria accumulate, a harmful, acidic environment is created. This is how decay occurs.

But that’s just the beginning. If not cleared away by brushing and flossing, bacteria eventually becomes plaque, which can irritate the gums and cause gum disease. When untreated, gum disease can eventually cause pockets to develop between teeth and gums. It’s also known to be the primary cause of tooth loss in adults.

Thankfully, the doctors at Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic can help with tooth-colored fillings, plus crowns, inlays, and onlays. We can also provide periodontal care and offer tips on how to maintain good oral health in between visits.

Regular visits are important for more than just offering general and restorative services—they’re also about prevention. We don’t want to just treat common oral health problems; we want to prevent them as much as possible, too.

Is it time for your next visit to Juno Beach & Restorative Aesthetic. Call our Juno Beach dental office today for an appointment. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley serve patients from North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, and Jupiter.
