It’s even stranger when they sit right across from you, as they’ve done every day for the past year. “Oh wow, I didn’t even recognize them.” Your normally taciturn cubicle mate is chatty and laughing more than they have in all the time that you’ve know them. The change in demeanor is only outshined by their glowing smile. That has to be different, you think to yourself.

Removing plaque is an important part of your daily oral hygiene routine that helps you avoid not only gum disease—gingivitis and periodontitis—but also tooth decay. Brushing removes plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, but what about the plaque that hides in between your teeth and along the gum line? For that you must floss. Your dentist in Cumming, GA, Dr. Katherine Lee or Dr. Brian Lee at Dentistry at Windermere, want you to floss as well as possible. So, here is a countdown of their top three tips for better flossing.

Many people use the terms smile makeover and full-mouth reconstruction interchangeably. Although both end up improving the appearance of a patient’s smile, they are different procedures with different purposes. A smile makeover is planned and performed strictly for cosmetic purposes—because you want your smile to look as attractive as possible. Full-mouth reconstruction, on the other hand, is primarily done to restore the functionality of your teeth and, therefore, usually includes a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. If your smile needs to function and look better, Drs. Katherine and Brian Lee at Dentistry at Windermere in Cummings, GA, can create a plan for full-mouth reconstruction that’s just right for you. Let’s take a look at some of the procedures that might be included in your customized plan.

Porcelain veneers have a nickname: instant orthodontics. That’s a pretty accurate description, too. Veneers are microthin layers of dental porcelain or composite resin that Dr. Katherine Lee or Dr. Brian Lee bond to the teeth that people see when you smile. In this way, porcelain veneers instantly correct a number of cosmetic flaws such as:
- Teeth that are irreversibly stained or discolored and have not responded to professional teeth whitening
- Teeth that have wide spaces between them
- Misshaped teeth
- Teeth that are smaller than other teeth
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Slightly crooked teeth
If your smile is beset by any of these imperfections or another flaw that makes you unhappy or hesitant to smile, then talk to one of us at Dentistry at Windermere. You may be a perfect candidate for porcelain veneers or another treatment called Lumineers®.
