One day you’re just going about your business and your breath is the last thing on your mind. The next, you realize your breath is a little yucky. Then, you find yourself dealing with a case of full-fledged bad breath (which we also refer to as halitosis) that you cannot seem to shake. You rinse, you brush, you floss, you even give up all of the smelly but oh-so-delicious foods you think may be the cause. What to do next, you ask our Cerritos, CA team? Not to worry: We have answers and can help you.

Sometimes, wisdom teeth removal is something that you have the luxury of thinking about and considering for a while.

You might love the idea of replacing your older dental crowns (possibly metal crowns) with new ceramic crowns! However, that may be as far as the thought goes until you realize you’re not sure if it’s a good idea to do so. You may even wonder whether we will be on board with this plan. Of course, our Cerritos, CA team thinks it’s a fantastic idea to replace older restorations with those composed of new, lifelike materials. If you’re itching for some compelling reasons to follow through and trust your instincts, we are happy to help.#1:
First, you enjoy absolute relief that there is a way to fix whatever it is that is bothering you in terms of your smile, while the end result includes a beautiful finish. Thanks to porcelain used in veneers and ceramic crowns, you have a world of options at your fingertips, whether you’re dealing strictly with esthetic concerns or oral health damage, as well. Where patients often find themselves pulling back from their initial excitement? Worrying about long-term maintenance, of course! The good news here is that our Cerritos, CA team can help you feel much better about the details.
When you’re looking at your smile in the mirror, what are some of the first things you notice? Do you recognize that instead of enjoying a smile full of teeth that rest flush next to one another, you have some little spaces? Maybe there’s one prominent gap. Perhaps you see spaces because there really are complete spaces where teeth used to rest (because you have experienced tooth loss). Whatever the case, you don’t need to live with this, our Cerritos, CA team can most certainly help, and there are reasons we are happy to close those spaces with dental care. Learn more!
From our perspective as your Cerritos, CA dental surgery team, there’s absolutely nothing in the world to feel less than stellar about when it comes to our services. What could be better than having access to a comprehensive selection of treatments that can help you figure out what’s happening with your smile and even repair any problems that are occurring? However, we know that from your perspective, you may feel a little less enthusiastic. We empathize, certainly, but we also want to help you come over to our side just a little. To get started, we offer up a few “D” terms that you can feel good about (and we are happy to explain why you can feel so nice about them).
There may be something about dental care that you assume is isolated. When you need to treat something like a cavity, for instance, you may figure that you have forever and ever to get it done because it’s just a cavity, existing on its own, and affecting nothing else. However, this isn’t how your oral health works! When one thing is wrong, it generally leads to another problem (and often, another). One of the reasons you will hear our Cerritos, CA team suggest you act quickly when you need any type of treatment is not necessarily what you assume. Of course, it’s wonderful to get out of pain, to resolve issues in a timely manner, and more. However, the other pressing matter is that it will prevent a snowball effect! Consider some examples for clarity!
Good news: It’s still January. The year is still fresh and new. If you were thinking toward the end of 2018 that you should really get the ball rolling when it comes to tooth replacement but here you are and you still haven’t called us to set up a visit, no problem! You’ve still got about 11 and a half months to follow through! Of course, our Cerritos, CA team reminds you that the sooner you get started the better. Why, you wonder? Well, consider some reminders regarding why it’s a very wise choice to give yourself goals (and plenty of time).
