So What Exactly Are Veneers?

Veneers are made out of porcelain. They are wafer thin porcelain shells, shaped just like teeth that get bonded to your natural teeth. They are super strong and once you have veneers, you have them for life. They look natural although you can have them as white as you would like, and they genuinely work and give you a fabulous smile. The American Medical and Dental Centre (AMDC)in Dubai has a specialist department for teeth whitening, and has certainly perfected the art of the perfect Veneer! They have also managed to do this at reasonable prices.

Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?

In previous times it was only the very wealthy who could afford veneers. That is why you would see famous actors and actresses, especially American, with straight, white, perfect teeth. Advances in technology mean that veneers are now accessible for almost all people. They are porcelain, an expensive material, but are more widely produced and therefore not too costly. Good candidates for veneers would include:-

  • People with discoloured teeth.
  • Teeth those are crooked, chipped or cracked.
  • People with gaps in their mouths.
  • Anyone with bad teeth who wants to improve on their self-esteem

    Your dentist at the dental clinic in Dubai will tell you if you are a candidate for veneers. Not everyone is and this is why you need to have an assessment first. A dentist, or dental cosmetic surgeon, will consult with you and give you options. Your options may include Veneers.

Does It Hurt To Have Veneers?

A visit to the dentist is never going to be the most pleasurable thing, but again, with advanced technology and especially at the AMDC, there is really limited pain. Your dentist will make you as comfortable as possible and will ensure that he or she works on your mouth in the most pain-free way. There may be a little discomfort; you do have to lie in the chair with your mouth wide open after all. But the pain is not at all extreme, and in most instances, veneers in Dubai are done in a high-tech, luxurious and pain-free way. Many dentists, and especially at the AMDC, use a local anaesthetic. This will always be discussed with the patient, in advance.

How Long Will My Veneers Last?

Veneers can last a lifetime, it depends on you! Most dentists will tell you that your veneers can last between 10 and 20 years. A lot of this depends on your lifestyle. If you smoke and drink, and do not brush your teeth well, you may just get 5 to 10 years. But you will definitely get those years with magnificent teeth. You do need to brush twice daily, you do need to continue flossing, and you should have your regular six monthly dental check ups. Many dentists will also suggest that you wear a night guard to prevent wear and tear.

Can I Choose How White I Want My Veneers?

The shape of your dental veneers will be tailor made to suit your mouth and your teeth. The same goes with the colour. Your dentist will choose the best shade of white that will suit your skin colour, eye colour and hair colour, while looking glamorous and natural. You may want to go an extreme white, and it is likely that your dentist will gently suggest you do not go too extreme. Very white teeth look unnatural. White teeth look great! The dentists at the AMDC will assess you and then make suggestions as to which shape and colour veneers will be best for you.

Do I Get A Mouthful Of Veneers Or Just A Few?

Most dentists will suggest veneers for your front top teeth, or your most social teeth, i.e. the ones that are seen. You can have as many teeth veneered as you want, but your dentist will explain which ones you should get done, and why. Aesthetically speaking, you want your smile to be perfect. Look in the mirror, see which teeth you can predominantly see when you smile. It is likely that these are the teeth that your dentist will suggest you have veneered.

5 Ways to Keep Your Teeth White at Your Home

Our lifestyle means that we don’t all have the whitest of teeth, although a dentist in Dubai can fix that for you. Most adults drink a lot of coffee or tea, causing grey or yellowing teeth. Very often we don’t care for our teeth when we are younger which leads to discoloured teeth when we are older Genetics plays a large part and some of us are disposed to having discoloured teeth. And our diets are often responsible for our tooth discolouration too.
Teeth whitening is a big thing, although it can be time consuming or costly. The cheapest dental implants in Dubai are done at the AMDC, although there are several other cost effective methods too.

Dentists in Dubai

Having your teeth whitened is pretty ‘ordinary’ these days. In the same way that people have their hair cut, their teeth straightened, go to yoga or the gym, and look after their skin, people are looking after their teeth. There are many teeth whitening products that can be used at home, safely and effectively, although most people choose to go to the dentist for teeth whitening. Technology is so advanced today that it is easy and to go to the dentist, as well as being inexpensive, but some people still prefer to do their own teeth at home.

Here are our top ways for you to keep your teeth white at home:-

1. Buy a Home Teeth Whitening Kit:

There are many home teeth whitening kits on the market. Read the instructions carefully, and follow them exactly. Home kits do work, although they can be a little messy. The beauty of having your teeth whitened by a professional is that they deal with everything from A-B, while you lay back comfortably in the chair. But you can do it at home, just read, follow the instructions and you too could have that beautiful smile.

2. Pull with Coconut Oil:

This is an interesting way to whiten your teeth, and it is a way that many naturopaths and homeopaths recommend. Oil pulling has been practiced in India for centuries, as a way of cleaning the teeth, improving overall oral hygiene and, as a way to cleanse the body and remove toxins. You should use good, pure, organic coconut oil. Generally, you use a teaspoon of the oil, swish it around in your mouth for a good twenty minutes, and then spit it out. If you are going to do this, read up on it beforehand so you know exactly what you are doing.

3. Bicarbonate of Soda:

Good old bicarb! So many people swear by this, although we are unsure about how long it takes to see your teeth getting whiter, and how long it lasts. Most of the toothpaste has a bit of baking soda or bicarbonate of soda in them. Brush with a little bicarb, twice daily, and see the difference. Spit it out after brushing as bicarb does not taste that good.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar:

There are many natural benefits to apple cider vinegar, and teeth whitening is one of them. It’s best used as a mouthwash, diluted in water. You need to gargle with the solution, and then swish it around your mouth. You may brush your teeth with the solution too. Like bicarb, the whitening effects may take a bit of time, and may not last for long, but overall, apple cider vinegar is good for cleansing and general oral health.

5. Eat the Right Fruits and Vegetables:

Eat those apples and crispy fruit and vegetables whenever you can. This is a good one for your children too, as they are probably too young to do the coconut oil pulling, or to be using bicarb of soda or apple cider vinegar. Again, we are not a hundred percent sure if this will make adult teeth whiter, but it will certainly make you overall healthier!

fruits and vegetables

In the past, home remedies have include hydrogen peroxide but if you chat to a dentist in Dubai, they will tell you NOT to do this at home. The dangers outweigh the benefits and you need to know exactly what you are doing and not to use the wrong concentration.

Oral Health Concerns More Common in Seniors

When people are young they take their health for granted.  But as they get older, health becomes a major concern.  Ageing is a normal process, and it is the one thing nobody can escape. With medical technology and advancement today, most people living in first world countries live well beyond the age of 75.  The UAE is one of those countries that has a good life expectancy, with most males living up until the age of 77, and females up to 79.

Because of medical technology, and access to excellent health care in Dubai, life expectancy are increasing.  It’s a good idea, as one gets older, to do the usual medical checks on a regular basis.  Visit your general practitioner every six months or so, or as advised, to have your blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar checked.  Your doctor will tell you what other tests are necessary as you get older – mammograms for women on an annual basis, prostate checks for men, and more.

Dental care is as important as anything else.  Oral health becomes more problematic as you age, and this is why it is so important to look after your teeth from a young age. Parents should always take their children to a pediatric dentist in Dubai as soon as their babies start getting teeth, and children and adults should then be encouraged to have regular dental check ups.  This is a way to ensure that oral health issues are not encountered.

Dental Problem in Senior

Some oral health issues cannot be avoided.  Seniors will lose their teeth.  Seniors will generally need dental implants, root treatments, cavities filled and may experience bacterial oral disease.  At the American Medial and Dental Center in Dubai, there is an excellent team of dentists, dental specialists, dental cosmetic specialists, orthodontists and dental surgeons.  They deal with everything from dental crowns, root canals, dental extractions, dental sealants and dentures.

Most older people will need dentures as they get older.  A lot of health concerns for ageing people are genetic – some are more prone to life threatening diseases, arthritis, dementia or osteoporosis – than others.  Dental care can also be genetic, but it does help to look after your teeth from an early age.  If you haven’t looked after your teeth, or have only visited the dentist on an irregular basis, you do not need to worry.  Dentists see all kinds of patients and they don’t judge!  They fix.  And if you are in Dubai, then the only place to go is the American Medical and Dental Center, to have your teeth assessed, cleaned, cared for and fixed if necessary.

Senior Smile

If you are reading this and you have young children, get them to a pediatric dentist in Dubai. Kids really should be taught about oral health from a young age, and they should be taught not to fear the dentist. A good pediatric dentist in Dubai will ensure that a child is made to feel comfortable and learns not to fear the dentist.  A good dentist, one who does his or her job well, will have kids looking forward to a visit to the dentist. And the same goes with adults and geriatrics too.

Dental health has been connected to overall general health.  Research has been done that shows that dental problems can be related to heart problems, certain cancers and pneumonia.  This coupled with general dental issues for the aged, such as root decay, cavities, darkened teeth and periodontists, mean regular visits to the dentist are recommended.  Again, find yourself a good pediatric dentist in Dubai, and you will find a fantastic team at the American Medical and Dental Center, and start care from a young age.

Medical and dental technology has improved enormously over the past few years.  Treatments today, especially at the American Medical and Medical Center, are relatively pain free, as well as being super advanced.  If you do have oral issues, deal with them quickly.

A few tips for older people regarding dental care:-

  • Brush your teeth twice daily.
  • Floss once daily.
  • Use an oral mouthwash once a day.
  • An electric toothbrush may be a good idea.
  • Clean your dentures daily.
  • Visit your dentist every six months or when needed.

For parents of young children we recommend:-

  • Give your baby a play-play toothbrush to use while teething.
  • Take your child to a pediatric dentist in Dubai from a young age.
  • Encourage brushing twice daily, and help when necessary.
  • Teach your kids to floss.
  • Teach your kids to love their teeth and to take good care of them!

While we have spoken a lot about various diseases that can affect senior citizens, remember that exercise and fresh food are also vitally important.  Fruit, vegetables, dairy, protein and fat are all vital, together with the recommended nutrients and vitamins.  And no matter your age, walk, jog or visit the gym!

Quick, comfortable procedure that can relieve your pain and save your natural tooth,so There’s no need to be worried if you are in need of it as Millions of teeth are treated and saved this way each year.

What is root canal ?

Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development.

Preparation:

Before having root canal treatment, you should do some steps :

– A series of X-rays have to be taken of the affected tooth.

This allows dentists to define any damage in your teeth and have clear picture of the root canal.

Dentists usually use local anesthetic, and painkilling medicines.

In some cases it isn’t necessary to use a local anesthetic, as the tooth is no longer sensitive.

In this case, dentists  use special  techniques to ensure that the treatment isn’t painful.

-Removing the pulp, We have to be sure that the tooth is dry during the treatment so the dentist will place a rubber sheet (dam) around the tooth. Then an opening is made and the diseased tooth pulp is removed.

If you have a dental abscess, which is a pus-filled swelling, your dentist will be able to drain it at the same time.

-Cleaning the root canal, to make the root canal easy to be filed it has to be clean and wider ,so After the pulp has been removed, your dentist will clean and enlarge the root canal .

The root canal is usually very narrow, which makes it difficult to fill. So Your dentist will use a series of small files to enlarge the canals and make them a regular shape so they can be filled.

To complete this step you need more much time and may need several visits to your dentists

Your front incisor and canine teeth (biting teeth) usually have a single root containing one root canal.

The premolars and back molar teeth (chewing teeth) have two or three roots, each containing either one or two root canals. The more roots a tooth has, the longer the treatment will take to complete.

If the treatment needs several sessions, the dentist have to keep the canal clean by putting a small amount of medication in the cleaned canal in between visits to kill any remaining bacteria. The tooth will then be sealed using a temporary filling.

If you have symptoms from the infection, such as a raised temperature or large swelling, you may be given antibiotics to help manage and prevent further infection.

-Filling the root canal:  the roots that have been opened (to get rid of the disease pulp) are filled with gutta-percha material and sealed off with cement.

What are the advantages of Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment:

  • Efficient chewing
  • Normal biting force and sensation
  • Natural appearance
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain

These fissures are difficult to clean, because they are very deep and narrower than even a single bristle of a toothbrush. Plaque gathers in these areas, and bacteria in the plaque attacks the enamel and cavities can develop.
