Good dental care is important for your overall health, and visiting your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning is essential. Watch this video for an in-depth explanation of what you can expect during a routine dental cleaning.
You should allow a full hour for your visit to the dentist. The dental hygienist will go over your general health history as well your dental care habits, and can show you areas where you need to improve. You will see a variety of instruments during your cleaning, from the ultrasonic machine to hand-scaling tools. Depending on the state of your dental health, you may receive x-rays that your dentist will read to look for any signs of decay.

Do you find yourself hiding your smile because you’re embarrassed of a few cosmetic imperfections in your teeth? If so, ask your dentist if cosmetic bonding is the right solution for you. Cosmetic bonding is a less invasive procedure than veneers or crowns, as very little (if any) of your original tooth is removed. Your dentist will use a shade guide to find the color of composite that matches the rest of your teeth so that your bonded tooth blends right in. After preparing the tooth for the bonding material, the tooth-colored resin is applied and adjusted for a natural look. Your dentist will use a special light to harden the resin, then shape and polish it so that it mimics the appearance of the rest of your teeth.
A cosmetic bonding session is an efficient way of improving your smile. Call the dental office of Dr. John Pallotta, DMD at (888) 818-3725 to talk with a cosmetic dentist and find out if this cosmetic dentistry procedure could be right for you. We provide the best possible dental care to all of our patients in the Lexington area.
