Discover the factors that help us determine the best tooth loss treatment for you.

Dental ImplantsDid you know that your lifestyle certainly plays a major role in the health of your teeth? If you are a smoker or someone who doesn’t floss their teeth, then you may end up facing tooth loss at some point during your life. If you are missing teeth, our Providence, RI, family dentists Drs. Marc and Lawrence Page can help you find the best tooth replacement option. After all, leaving those gaps in your smile can cause other issues for your oral health. This is the perfect time to consider whether dental implants could help you.

Most people want to get dental implants because they offer a long-term tooth replacement that functions and looks just like a real tooth. Of course, not everyone is right for dental implants and it’s important that our Providence, RI, cosmetic dentist examines your smile, and discusses your goals for treatment. Here’s what makes someone a good candidate for dental implants:

Healthy gums: Since dental implants will be placed within the socket where your missing tooth used to be it’s important that you have healthy gums that can receive the false tooth.

A Healthy Jawbone: Just as the health of your gums is important for your implant, the strength and density of your jawbone is also crucial for this restoration. Since there must be a certain amount of jawbone density to support the implant, which our dentist will place into the jawbone, we will need to take X-rays to make sure there isn’t significant bone loss.

Good Oral Health: Overall, we need to make sure that you are doing what you need to in order to keep your oral health in the best shape possible for the long run. This includes brushing and flossing properly and visiting your dentist every six months for routine checkups. Preventive dentistry is the best way to keep your smile and your implant in good health.

If you are an adult living in Providence, RI, who is missing one or more teeth then it’s time to schedule a consultation to determine the best course of action for treating your tooth loss and giving you a beautiful, healthy smile again. Call Page Family Dentistry today and let us know that you are interested in getting dental implants.

Porcelain veneers are the premier cosmetic treatment offered by cosmetic dentists and are responsible for many gorgeous Hollywood veneerssmiles. One veneer treatment can resolve a long list of cosmetic problems with your teeth, including discoloration, chipping, and spacing. See why getting veneers at Page Family Dentistry in Providence, RI is a smart choice for your smile.

Getting Veneers Is Simple
You don’t have to go through any complicated process to get veneers. Your dentist will be able to tell you in a few minutes if you are a candidate after looking at your X-rays. The number of veneers you'll need will depend on the condition of your teeth and the shape of your smile. Next, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from each tooth to leave enough room for each veneer. After an impression is taken using a dental mold, you'll come back in a few weeks to have your veneers bonded. 

Getting Veneers Is Relatively Quick
Compared to other options for correcting your smile problems, veneer treatment is a fast way to improve the look of your teeth. For instance, when you use Invisalign or metal braces to improve the alignment of your teeth, it can take anywhere between six months to three years to get the results you want. Adding veneers will fix the same problem in a matter of weeks. 

Getting Veneers Is Satisfying
The best part about going to your Providence dentist for veneers is that you will have an amazing smile for many years. Many patients enjoy healthy, young, and vibrant-looking teeth for up to 10 years or longer. Seeing a brand new smile in the mirror after the treatment is finished is a satisfying experience. This treatment is a valuable investment in your appearance and self-confidence.

Veneers May Be Your Smile Solution
There’s a strong possibility that veneers can fix up your smile. They'll make you feel more confident and attractive when you're navigating your social and professional life. Call (401) 421-9350 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lawrence Page or Dr. Marc Page at their Providence, RI office.

Learn about some common dental procedures from your Providence dentists.cosmetic dentistry

There are many dental procedures for strengthening your teeth and improving the appearance of your smile. Some of the most common dental procedures in Providence are dental implants, crowns, veneers and teeth whitening. All of these procedures can be performed by Dr. Marc Page and Dr. Lawrence Page at Page Family Dentistry in Providence, RI.

Veneers

Veneers are an excellent option for dramatically transforming your teeth and your smile. A veneer is a thin tooth-colored cover applied to the front of a problem tooth. Once the veneer is applied, it looks just like a natural tooth. Veneers can conceal stains, discolorations, cracks, chips, uneven spacing and other imperfections. To apply the veneer, a small amount of enamel is first removed from the front of the tooth to allow the veneer to rest flush with the surrounding teeth. The veneer is then permanently cemented in place with a dental adhesive.

Crowns

Dental crowns serve both a functional and cosmetic purpose. They strengthen teeth that have become weak and improve the appearance of teeth with imperfections, including cracks or discolorations. They can also give oddly shaped teeth a new shape. A dental crown is like a cap that completely encapsulates a problem tooth. It acts as a protective shell keeping the original tooth safe inside. Once installed, crowns look and function like natural teeth. Even weak teeth that have been worn down can readily bite and chew again with a dental crown.

Dental Implants

Dental implants permanently replace missing or extracted teeth and their roots. A dental implant is comprised of three components: a metal implant, an abutment and a porcelain crown. The metal implant is installed below the gum line and is anchored to the jaw bone to act as the root. The crown sits above the gum line and takes the place of the missing tooth. The abutment joins the implant and crown together. In Providence, dental implants can be installed by the dentists at Page Family Dentistry.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can whiten your teeth by several shades in a single treatment. The bleaching agent in the teeth whitening treatments offered at your dentist’s office are professional quality and deliver long lasting results. The results of professionally whitened teeth can last for up to five years before additional treatments are needed. Over-the-counter whitening products, such as toothpastes and strips, take longer to produce significantly whiter teeth and cannot deliver the same level and quality of results as professional teeth whitening treatments.

Whether you wish to repair a chipped tooth or brighten your smile, many dental procedures are available for transforming your smile. For teeth whitening, veneers, crowns or dental implants in Providence, RI, schedule an appointment with either Dr. Marc or Lawrence Page by calling Page Family Dentistry at (401) 421-9350.

Do you hate the flaws in your smile? One restoration could change all that!veneers

Most people aren’t born with the perfect smile. Despite this, this doesn’t stop countless Americans from getting the smiles they know they should have. If you are interested in a simple solution that could improve your smile in so many ways then it might be time to talk to our Providence, RI, cosmetic dentists, Drs. Lawrence and Marc Page, about dental veneers.

A dental veneer is one restoration that is able to do so much. Just by applying this thin shell of porcelain to the front of your teeth, we can create a more ideal and attractive smile. Whether you want to lengthen short or malformed teeth or you want to hide unsightly discolorations that teeth whitening can’t tackle, dental veneers can do all this and so much more. Veneers mask problems that affect the overall size, shape or color of your teeth without requiring the same invasive preparation that dental crowns do.

If you choose to get traditional dental veneers in Providence some tooth preparation will be required. Of course, preparation is minor and painless, so you need not worry! We will only have to file down a small amount of enamel from the front of the teeth that are getting veneers. This ensures that your veneers fit perfectly over your teeth without making your final results look cumbersome or unnatural.

Of course, if the idea of removing enamel has you a bit worried, then you may want to consider no-prep dental veneers. These extremely thin shells are even thinner than traditional veneers and often require absolutely no enamel removal. When you come in to talk to our Providence, RI, dentists about dental veneers, we can determine if your goals will be met through this wonderful cosmetic dentistry.

Each veneer is custom-made just for you, so you know you’ll get a beautiful smile with these restorations. Plus, no one will even know that your smile has veneers (Don’t worry; we won’t tell anyone!)

Page Family Dentistry is ready to help you achieve your dream smile. Dental veneers could just be the perfect solution for you. Call us today to book a consultation with our cosmetic experts.
