The Dream Of No Drill

June 23, 2017

The Dream Of No Drill In North Dallas

If you ask dental patients in the Plano, Lake Highlands, and Garland area what they hate the most about dental visits, chances are that they’ll mention the drill. Just the sound of it is enough to make people cringe.

Many residents of Richardson, Texas may wonder if there will ever be an alternative to the dreaded dental drill. Guess what? Now there is!

Drill-less dentistry is also known as air abrasion or microabrasion. Air abrasion can be used for common dental procedures such as removing tooth decay or preparing tooth surfaces for sealants or bonding. These instruments work like a little sandblaster that aim a fine stream of particles at the area that would normally be drilled. After the stream of particles strikes and removes the decay, the materials are suctioned out of the mouth.

Hi. I’m Dr. Kerry M. Goad of Richardson. I want my patients to be aware of the latest dental technology available, especially as it pertains to cosmetic dentistry.

If you are in need of quality dental care in the North Dallas area, or if you are interested in a smile makeover, give Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry a call at 972-535-4608. We can answer any questions you have about teeth whitening, veneers, gum contouring, or dental implants.

Make your appointment today so your teeth can look and feel their best!

Looking For A Great Dentist In Richardson?

June 16, 2017

Looking For A Dentist In RichardsonFinding an outstanding dentist in Richardson is generally achieved with a personal recommendation. The most common way for people to find a dentist in a new area such as Richardson is to ask a friend or neighbor ‘Who is your dentist?’ The answer is usually followed up with an explanation about whether or not your friend likes their dentist, and whether they would recommend their Richardson dentist.

I am Dr. Kerry Goad, and I am a dentist serving the Richardson, Texas community. We call our practice ‘Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry’, and we welcome new patients from the Garland area.

You May Have Gingivitis

June 9, 2017

Affordable Richardson Dentistry Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are dedicated to oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t influence your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause issues.

The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.

Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.

It is vital for people to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are a signal that something is out of order.

If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while and live in the North Dallas area, call Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry at 972-535-4608.

Our team will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums and take time to discuss the results and recommendations with you.

Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry is a full-service dental practice at 700 E Campbell Rd Ste 240 in Richardson. We provide comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry for patients who live in Richardson and the nearby communities of Plano, Lake Highlands and Garland.

During your dental consultation, we can examine any cosmetic or restorative services in which you are interested. Some of the procedures that we use to realize unforgettable smiles are porcelain veneers, orthodontics, dental implants, and tooth bleaching.

If you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a while, we invite you to schedule an extensive cleaning. Our hygienists are skilled professionals who carry out the ultimate in dental deep-cleanings.

Oral health and overall health go hand in hand. Schedule a dental consultation today by calling 972-535-4608.

Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics

June 2, 2017

Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics Garland

Residents of Plano and Richardson use the word ‘cavity’ often when discussing oral health practices. Along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, cavities are a hot topic.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry we think it’s great that people in the Garland area are so conscious of their teeth, and we feel that having a better understanding of exactly what a cavity is will help them take better care of their pearly whites.

Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities. Different factors that contribute to tooth decay are:

Frequent eating
Consuming sugary beverages
Oral bacteria
Insufficient tooth brushing and flossing

Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your Plano, North Dallas, or Lake Highlands dentist today for an appointment.

If you are in the market for quality dental care in the Richardson area, give Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry a call. We have been treating dental patients in and around Garland since 1990. We can also answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.

We hope to hear from you soon!

What’s New At Your Richardson Dentist Office?

May 19, 2017

Affordable Smile Makeovers In Garland

Hello friends of Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, today we’re talking about the modern dental office in Texas. Dentistry is a field of continual innovation. There are always new and improved ways to help Garland residents have the healthiest and most beautiful smile possible.

Many dental offices in the Plano, North Dallas, and Lake Highlands areas have found that switching to digital X-rays makes for more efficient appointments. Also, the dental images can more easily be stored in a patient’s computer file and compared with past images.

Diode lasers are innovative instruments that allow your Garland area dentist to detect bacteria levels in your mouth as well as find and treat cavities.

For Richardson patients interested in cosmetic or restorative dentistry, CAD (computer-assisted design) technology can allow procedures that involve crowns and bridges to be done in fewer appointments.

If you are considering a full smile makeover and want veneers, the newer, thinner veneers are just as strong and beautiful, but more of the original tooth is left intact.

I’m Dr. Kerry Goad. I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. My practice, Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, is located at 700 E. Campbell Rd. #240, and our friendly dental team is always ready to welcome new patients. We offer the following services:

cosmetic dentistry
sedation dentistry
general dentistry
sleep apnea treatment
snoring treatment

Been A While Since You’ve Visited A Dentist?

May 12, 2017

Richardson, Texas Visit the Dentist Whether you have lived in Texas for a long time, or are just moving in to the Richardson area; taking care of your teeth eventually involves a visit to the dentist. We are Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry located at 700 E Campbell Rd Ste 240 in Richardson, Texas. If you are looking for an experienced family dentist, we invite you to come in for a consultation  You can reach Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry to schedule an exam by calling 972-535-4608.

The very idea of visiting a dentist holds a negative connotation for many people. If you are an adult with dental anxiety, or your child is preparing to visit the dentist for the first time, here are a few tips that may help ease you into regular dental checkups and put you on the path toward increased oral health and wellness.

Choose a dentist in Richardson who is appropriate for your needs. When you meet your new Richardson dentist for the first time, make an effort to ask questions about the care you will receive. Be sure to meet with your dentist about his/her experience, age range of patients, and recommended procedures for any issues you may have. Get to know your Richardson dentist so you feel comfortable and relaxed.

Be prepared to provide your Richardson dentist with information. Whether you are experiencing specific pain at that moment, or anticipating a problem, be sure to discuss everything with your dentist. Many patients become intimidated in the office environment and avoid expressing pain or discussing issues. As your dentist, I need to know your history and everything you are experiencing. I will be better prepared to help if I have accurate and complete information.

There is no need to feel self-conscious if it has been a long time since you have received dental treatment. I have treated many first-time patients in your situation and have developed a trusting relationship with them.

The best way to have a good experience with a new dentist is to communicate. Let me know what you are experiencing so that I can make adjustments and help you feel more comfortable and secure. If we determine that you are going to need a key dental procedure more extensive than filling a cavity, let’s discuss sedation dentistry.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry our compassionate staff will work to make your dental experience a pleasant one. We know it can be uncomfortable to visit the dentist for the first time or after a long while. We’ll do what we can to make you feel relaxed, secure, and among caring friends.

Whitening vs Bleaching At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry In Richardson

May 5, 2017

Whitening vs Bleaching Richardson

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry provides in-office or through a take home kit. Results vary, but most patients experience significant lightening that lasts up to a year. Our Richardson teeth whitening patients affirm that a whiter smile boosts self confidence and can take years of wear and discoloration away to reveal a brighter smile.

Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching, however, mean two different things. Surface cracks and stains arise on tooth enamel, exposing the yellower dentin below the surface. Discoloration can be the result of the natural aging process, illness, genetics, or dark colored food or drink. Foods and beverages that are both dark colored and acidic – like wine, coffee, and tomato sauce  – have even greater staining power.

Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, do it yourself strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and reasonably-priced and can beautify teeth with continued, regular use. The extent of whitening varies, and it takes dedicated use to see results.

Whitening products that do not contain bleach can usually make teeth two to four shades lighter. These are a good choice for North Dallas men and women with sensitive teeth and gums that can react to products containing harsher whitening chemicals. Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry advises pregnant or nursing mothers to opt for the non-bleach whitening products.

Teeth bleaching is used to describe a tooth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. For best results, teeth bleaching should be done in-office by your Texas cosmetic dentist. Bleaching can usually achieve more noticeable results, sometimes up to seven shades lighter. Intrinsic stains on the dentin, as well as surface stains can be effectively lightened under an experienced Richardson dentist’s supervision.

Richardson Cosmetic Dental Artistry

April 14, 2017

Richardson Cosmetic Dental Artistry Richardson cosmetic dentistry is part science and part art.

I’m Kerry Goad of Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry and enjoy using my extensive dental training and artistic skills to design treatment plans unique to each of my Richardson cosmetic dental patients.

In order to achieve an attractive, yet natural looking result, I do much more than recommend specific procedures. I consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. In order to create a balanced look, the facial shape and coloring is taken into account. The Garland dentistry patient’s age, health condition and lifestyle all influence the plan.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan.

My artistic abilities have been perfected over several years of creating smile transformations for my Plano and North Dallas cosmetic dentistry patients. Even fairly recent cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers have advanced considerably. Dental implants are a truly remarkable solution for our Texas dental patients who have lost one or more teeth.

I would love to perform a personalized smile makeover for you. When the work has been completed and you are enjoying your new look, it will only be obvious to those who see you all the time. Others will assume you have always been blessed with a naturally beautiful and healthy smile.

Top 6 Ways To Destroy A Beautiful Smile

April 7, 2017

porcelain veneers cost Garland

6. Be a Builder Not a Wrecker
Bacteria is constantly trying to build an empire in your mouth, give it what it wants: juice, soda, chewy candy for the small crevices and hard to reach surfaces!

5. Let Acid Rock It!
Energy drinks, diet soda, red wine, coffee, tea. Great at staining and wearing away surfaces. The perfect magnet for acid loving bacteria. So avoid gums with Xylitol and Recaldent and shoot for foods and beverages containing citric acid and the super duper sourest of candies.

4. Enjoy an Overcast Day Every Day
Lighting up and remaining in a tobacco fog is an efficient way to achieve the vibrant yellow hue we’re all looking for in tooth apparel.

3. Toss out Toothbrush and Floss
Avoid brushing after every single meal with a soft, gentle bristled toothbrush and fend off the urge to floss twice a day. This is critical if you want the bacteria to take over and result in gum disease and tooth decay.

2. Use Your Teeth as Tools
Hammer, wrench, screwdriver, scissors, bottle-opener. Use your imagination. Who needs a toolbox when you’ve got 32 solid options?

1. Cancel Regular Check-Ups

It is more difficult to ruin your smile if you have regular check-ups with your favorite Richardson dentist. Best to avoid them altogether if your goal is pure chaos and painful destruction.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this article and walked away with a renewed desire to take care of those enamel-covered marvels that serve you faithfully day in and day out.

I know many people throughout Plano and North Dallas have difficult struggles with oral health and lack smile satisfaction. That’s why I’m here. I am Kerry Goad of Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson. If you are experiencing dental problems, schedule a consultation today. I look forward to creating a plan to restore your oral health and the beauty of your smile.

To find out the price of braces, the price of veneers, the cost of teeth whitening, or the cost of a dental crown, call my practice at 972-535-4608.
