denturesFrom sports-related injuries to tooth decay, there are countless reasons why you might be dealing with tooth loss. Sure, this can be more than disheartening. We completely understand what you are going through. You might notice that your self-confidence has dropped, that you’re cancelling dinners and outings with friends, or that you are smiling less while out in public. You shouldn’t have to deal with these issues any longer. You have many options for replacing teeth and regaining that smile you want. If this sounds like something you’re ready for, then it might be time to consider getting dentures in Amherst.
 
 

Partial Dentures

 
If you still have the majority of your smile, then partial dentures in Amherst is the right choice for you. Partial dentures are a great solution for replacing several missing teeth as they consist of artificial teeth that are attached to plastic that is designed to look just like your gums. Partial dentures in Amherst are removable, and attach to natural teeth with metal clasps to keep them firmly in place. These metal clasps ensure that your partial dentures stay put while enjoy a meal or chatting with coworkers. Build self-confidence and a beautiful smile by getting partial dentures!
 
 

Full Dentures

 
There are times when a patient comes in with complete tooth loss. While they often feel like there is nothing that can help, your Amherst family dentist is here to tell you that’s not true! You can have a complete and healthy smile once again with full dentures. Full dentures come with countless benefits:
 
 
-       You finally have a smile you don’t mind showing off, which boosts your self-confidence. Who doesn’t want to enjoy going out for a night on the town or having dinner with friends? Now you can do that all confidently and comfortably with your full dentures in Amherst.
 
-       You’ll look younger. This might seem hard to believe, but it’s absolutely true. When dealing with severe tooth loss, the cheeks often begin to sink in, causing you to look older than you are. However, full dentures give fullness to your cheeks once more, making you look healthier and more youthful.
 
-       Enjoy your favorite foods! You might already be salivating at the prospect of the foods you will consume after getting your dentures. We hope you get to have every last one of those meals, and we know you’ll be able to finally enjoy them again. It’s exciting to be able to peruse a menu at a restaurant and know you can have anything your heart desires.
 
 
If you’re still not sure which dentures are right for you, your Amherst dentist is ready to sit down and talk about your options. We want you to be happy and satisfied with your smile. Set up an appointment today by calling (603) 673-4102.
 
 
Have dentures in Amherst changed you life? If so, we would love to know in what ways your life has changed? Are you more social, or have you rediscovered your love for hamburgers? We want to hear it all!

teeth whitening When you look back at childhood photos, you might not be able to believe how beautiful and radiant your smile was. It’s easy to have a perfectly white smile when you’re a child; however, as we get older, it can be a challenge to keep our teeth looking as pristine. We often find a passion for red wine, Earl Grey tea, or Indian cuisines. We forget that what we eat and drink can often affect the color of our smiles. If you liken your smile to a white t-shirt you can easily see how these favorite snacks could stain your teeth. However, there is a solution that could get your smile back to the smile you remember from childhood photos. Let teeth whitening in Amherst come to the rescue.
 
 
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a whopping 99.7 percent of adults believe a smile is an important social asset. So if you’re finding that your yellowing teeth are cramping your style, don’t let it any longer. Here are the facts about professional Amherst teeth bleaching.
 
 
Professional tooth whitening in Amherst is superior to over-the-counter (OTC) treatments. Sure, OTC products might boast a brighter smile, but can they deliver? Not quite the way a professional whitening system can. Not only are the results more significant with an in-office whitening service, but also the gums and the rest of the mouth are protected from these strong materials. This isn’t something you can get when you do it yourself.
 
 
Nothing is speedier than a teeth whitening from your Amherst cosmetic dentist. In fact, your teeth could whiten up to ten shades in only an hour. That’s far more effective than using a whitening system you bought from your local pharmacy, which could take weeks to see even the slightest improvement.
 
 
If you have sensitive teeth then in-office dental whitening in Amherst will be the better choice for you. When you have me by your side, I can easily monitor your teeth checking for sensitive points during your teeth whitening. That’s more than can be said for OTC treatments.
 
 
Also, your Amherst teeth whitening could last as longer as five years. That might seem too good to be true, but if you adopt good dental hygiene and avoid staining foods, then you could maintain that pearly white smile for years.
 
 
In under an hour, that perfect glistening smile could be yours. If you want to get your teeth whiter, call your Amherst dentist today at (603) 673-4102.
