This will likely come as no surprise, but teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry service available. Even those patients who maintain the strictest oral hygiene routines notice staining and discoloration over time because the foods and drinks we consume every day are the main contributor to dental staining. While brushing, flossing, and twice a year professional cleanings go a long way to keeping teeth pearly white, patients who are interested in brightening their smiles may wish to consider professional teeth whitening. Our team offers custom teeth whitening plans to whiten smiles up to ten shades.

The phrase, “you are what you eat,” or more correctly, “dis-moi ce que tu mange, je te dirai ce que tu es,” was coined in 1826 by Frenchmen, Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. The physician’s words have been used for more than a century to point to the biological imperative that oral and overall health are dictated in large part by nutrients absorbed from the food we eat. When it comes to oral health, food not only provides the nutrients necessary to maintain health, they can also be a delivery system for acids and sugars that damage teeth. Maintaining a balanced diet may be the difference between a lifetime of naturally beautiful smiles, and one filled with dental damage. Preventive dentistry appointments and at-home visits may not be enough to keep teeth healthy for patients who consume a high sugar or acidic diet.

While root canals have gotten a bad reputation for being painful and unpleasant, the underlying cause of the pain is the root canal infection. Not the procedure. In fact, many patients who receive root canal treatment report feeling significant pain relief almost immediately after root canal therapy. If you’re experiencing pain you believe may be related to an infection of the root canal, call the Flint, MI dental team at the practice of Chitra P. Naik, DMD.
