Executive Esthetic Dentistry: Finding Your Perfect Smile

Posted on Sep 15, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

cosmetic dentist in vancouverThese days, CEOs aren’t fretting over their fine lines, but are more interested in the state of their smile. Executive Esthetic Dentistry is cosmetic dentistry for executives at a high-level, but differs from what a model or actor would pursue when it comes to their teeth. Here at Kerrisdale Dental in Vancouver, we can offer you dental procedures that will give you the smile you deserve to help achieve your work and business goals.

In a recent Forbes magazine article, executive smile makeovers were a prominent feature. Even though these types of makeover aren’t all that trendy, they are getting more media attention in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures. Having a smile you can be proud of gives you the self-confidence you need to succeed in the business world.

Executives also want a natural smile which will work to make them look younger. Business is turning into a more competitive field worldwide which has even Japanese executives turning to cosmetic dentistry. Even though everyone is unique, achieving a great executive esthetic smile has common threads that people share.

Many executives like being at the center of everything, but they seem to be more subtle when choosing a new smile. The look executives lean towards is natural and youthful–a step above their actual smile. With advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures from Kerrisdale Dental, your smile will help you appear younger, and give a more professional appearance when dealing with clients or prospective clients.

Because corporation presidents and CEO’s are generally older, teeth bleaching alone is not effective enough. Stains have become implanted on the tooth after being built up over the years and cannot be whitened. Executive restorations for patients at our dental clinic in Vancouver are more successful when veneers or crowns are used. These cosmetic dentistry procedures be utilized depending on how much healthy tooth a patient has and whatever their desired outcome may be.

One great thing about cosmetic dentistry is the ability for dentists to make each procedure individual and customized for every unique patient. A unique smile makeover is possible because of recent advancements in dentist technique and smile design, dental materials used, and laboratory expertise.

Whatever your smile makeover aspirations, Kerrisdale Dental in Vancouver can help you create the smile you’ve been looking for. Give us a call today to make an appointment.

Smiles for Life: Keeping Your Teeth Natural

Posted on Sep 8, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

It has come across our attention at Kerrisdale Dental that many aging patients are concerned about losing teeth as they grow older. The truth of the matter is that there is no reason for senior citizens to lose their teeth other than because of oral disease.senior citizen dental care vancouver

Your perfect smile can last you a lifetime, if you take proper care of it.

The aging generation is now one of the fastest growing populations in North America. Most dental professionals are seeing that these citizens are keeping their teeth healthy, allowing for a natural smile with no need of dental implants or dentures.

However, a natural smile that lasts a lifetime is only possible with proper oral health care—which typically requires an annual visit to the team at Kerrisdale Cosmetic and General Dentistry.

“We have found that seniors take longer breaks from visiting the dentist,” says Dr. Abbas Tejani, “it seems as if they stop caring because they don’t think their oral hygiene matters anymore.”

Proper oral health care is essential for older people for a multitude of reasons. One of which is dry mouth, which slows down the production of saliva. Often seen in elderly patients, dry mouth can be harmful because saliva helps to prevent tooth decay by washing away food particles and eliminating acids. Luckily, a dentist can fix dry mouth.

Senior citizens should also remember to maintain a regiment of daily flossing and brushing with fluoride toothpaste. Elderly people are likely to get cavities where older fillings have broken or where receding gums have left unprotected surfaces.

In addition, for elderly patients to maintain optimal oral health, snacks with sugars and starch should be eliminated.

Keep your smile healthy and complete with proper oral care! Take some time to contact us at Kerrisdale Dental for a check-up and cleaning today.

"One of the leading causes of cavities is from carbonated beverages; which not only result in cavities but also increase obesity in today’s teenager."

With teenagers eating an increased amount of fast food and carbonated beverages to keep up with their busy lifestyle, family dental clinics are witnessing a generation inflicting serious damage to their oral and overall health.

A poor diet that consists of sugary treats and fast food can result in premature loss of tooth enamel, resulting in a weaker tooth structure. Due to this, it is especially important that teenagers try to maintain a healthy diet.

One of the leading causes of cavities is from carbonated beverages; which not only result in cavities but also increase obesity in today’s teenager.

The citric, tartaric, carbonic and phosphoric acids that come from pop can often lead to the breakdown of tooth enamel, naturally leading to cavities or tooth decay.

In order to actively prevent cavities from occurring, teenagers and parents need to decrease the amount of sugar-filled pop consumed. In addition, regular checkups and cleanings need to be scheduled at your local family dental clinic to ensure optimal oral health.

Contact Kerrisdale Dental today to book an appointment or to learn more about cavity prevention for teenagers.

Diabetes and Gum Disease: The Connection Between the Two

Posted on Aug 25, 2011 in Blog | 0 comments

Is there a connection between the two diseases? Yes. Recent studies conducted by the American Diabetes Association have proven that diabetes and gum disease are linked. Diabetics not only have the problem of everyday blood glucose monitoring and maintaining; they are more prone to gum disease and oral health complications.  With the serious disease of diabetes, numerous other complications can occur such as a low immune system and oral health complications such as gingivitis. Diabetics do not have as much fighting power within their immune system as healthy people and this makes them vulnerable to a variety of problems.

Diabetes and gum disease are connected because when blood glucose levels become unstable the teeth cannot remain strong. This can cause a diabetic to lose teeth throughout their lifetime. The risk of serious gum disease is higher when a diabetic’s blood sugar level becomes unbalanced. New research and studies performed indicate that if we focus on maintaining our oral health, we can maintain or improve our general health. An unhealthy set of teeth can lead to numerous problems and health conditions. Gum disease can seriously affect a diabetic because it can increase blood glucose levels so high that it may be more and more difficult to maintain on a daily basis.

If you are suffering from diabetes, you must take good care of your gums. By brushing your teeth two to three times daily after meals, flossing, booking routine dental cleanings, controlling glucose levels and using mouthwash, you can greatly reduce your chances of getting gum disease. It is also important to observe your teeth and gums daily to see if any teeth are loose and if any gums are bleeding as this has been a sign of individuals dealing with diabetes and gum disease

We at Kerrisdale Dental understand how diabetes and gum disease can deeply affect your life and quality of living. We remain educated and updated on the most recent dental studies, confirmed healthcare reports and offer state-of-the-art technology and treatments. It is our job to keep your teeth and gums healthy and we commit ourselves to providing optimal oral health and hygiene in all of our patients.
