Hello Richardson! Welcome to Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, and we have been here serving the North Dallas area since 1978. We are constantly striving to cater to the oral health needs of our patients, and we hope that you might be one of these patients soon!
One innovative way that we keep our patients and others informed is by this blog, the Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry blog. We want to keep families informed about how they can have healthy, beautiful smiles.
A central purpose of this blog is to motivate everyone to develop more effective oral health habits, such as proper brushing and flossing.
Cosmetic dentistry is another critical topic that we like to address. We offer a full menu of cosmetic dentistry services. Ask us about dental implants, teeth whitening, veneers, dental crowns, tooth-colored fillings, and gum contouring. We hope to educate North Dallas residents on what these procedures are and how they can help you to get the beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted.
If you have any questions, please call us at 972-690-6653 and a member of our compassionate staff can schedule an appointment for you. Whether you want to know more about in-office teeth whitening, problems such as dry mouth, dental implants, or invisible braces, we can help.
Hello, Richardson smiles! Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise attractive teeth? Let Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry fill the gap for you and help you get your stunning smile back! A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.
A bridge includes two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth permit a false tooth to be held in-place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you choose a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be produced using gold or an alloy.
Dr. Goad will work closely with you to make certain that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our proficient hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no tooth decay occurs in the nooks and crannies.
Dr. Goad has been successfully restoring smiles since 1978. Thousands of patients have trusted Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry with their dental health.
If you are planning extensive cosmetic dental work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once or one procedure at a time over an extended period. Here are some factors to examine:
Cost In the long run, it is less pricey to do it all at once. At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson, we are able to complete several procedures in one visit. We know that complete smile transformations are a significant investment for most North Dallas residents. We would be happy to discuss affordable dentistry financing options. Call us at 972-690-6653 to schedule a no-pressure consultation.
Time With the latest materials and revolutionary cosmetic dental techniques, healing is speedier than in the past. However, some procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants may require a healing period.
It is easier physically and psychologically to have the fewest possible visits to your Richardson dentist. You should also think about how your dental visits and needed healing periods will influence your employment and family life. You will have less downtime if you receive several procedures at once.
Aesthetic Results While we routinely achieve great outcomes when doing a smile makeover in steps, multiple porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
Sedation Dentistry When you come in for a smile analysis, we can discuss oral sedation dentistry. Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from this safe and effective solution for pain and anxiety management. Conscious sedation is especially beneficial for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.
When Dr. Kerry M. Goad crowns one of our patients, the coronation is a celebration of a stronger smile.
The necessity of a dental crown is usually readily apparent. Based on how much tooth is available to hold in a filling, sometimes a crown is needed to add more support and to keep the tooth from falling apart or breaking. Crowns are also required as a sturdy support for dental bridges.
A crown restores your tooth to normal shape, size and strength, and allows it to resume its proper place as a team player with the other teeth.
Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, located at 700 E Campbell Rd Ste 240 in Richardson, Texas 75081, opened its doors in 1978 and has been serving patients throughout Texas with extraordinary efficiency, expertise, and personal attention since 1978. You could be our next royal to smile and wave for the paparazzi.
Consult with Dr. Goad to find out if you are a candidate for innovative restorative procedures meant to increase the life of your precious permanent teeth such as a fabulous crown. Keep in mind that crowns come in a variety of strong, reliable materials. Matching the natural color of your teeth increases the beauty of your smile. Gold crowns are incredibly strong and have the “bling” factor. But there are certainly other options.
In addition to restorative services, we would love to speak with you about cleanings, cosmetic services, teeth whitening, braces, veneers, and other smile makeover possibilities.
We are equipped to offer general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, adult orthodontics, sedation dentistry, and a long list of other procedures. Schedule your visit today with our compassionate staff at 972-690-6653.
A crown can return your tooth to all its former glory as a smiling, glowing, expert chewing machine.
Hello friends of Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry! In today’s message, we are talking about nutrition. There is nothing that impacts your smile as much as your eating habits. Develop good nutrition and your dentist will smile down on you too.
1. Rinse after eating
Rinse your mouth with a drink of water or brush your teeth after meals. People who snack all day long subject their teeth to sugars and food debris. Planned meals with brushing in between keep your oral health on top. 2. Skip sugary gum
Sugar-free gum doesn’t leave sugar to break down on your teeth and jeopardize your hard-earned healthy gums. If you are gum chewer, do your smile a favor and go sugarless.
3. Avoid sticky foods
Sticky foods have a habit of clinging to your teeth, which puts you at risk of decay. Toffee, gummy candy, fruit snacks, even excessive dried fruit can be concerning for smiles. Brushing doesn’t always remove the obstinate particles, so remember to floss after eating sticky items.
4. Consume nutritious foods
A balanced diet with a variety of vitamins and minerals can keep the immune system durable and able to combat infection.
5. Say ‘cheese!’
Cheese contains calcium and protects teeth from the acid that weakens tooth enamel. (It’s essential not to go overboard as cheese is high in fat.)
6. Avoid acidic foods
The acid will eat away enamel over time: lemons, red wine, soda pop. Limit direct, constant, consistent exposure. All things in moderation.
If you have questions about enamel damage that’s already taken place on your teeth or need help with crooked, chipped, or missing teeth, call Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson today and972-690-6653.
Hello, I’m Dr. Kerry M. Goad. At my Richardson practice, I have noticed more and more of my patients with stress-related dental issues. Richardson men and women may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health.
Richardson people who have difficulty managing stress need to realize that it can increase the risk of getting mouth sores such as cankers and cold sores. Most canker sores only last 7-10 days, but for relief from the irritation, we recommend our patients pick up an over-the-counter topical anesthetic at any Plano, Lake Highlands, or Garland drug store.
Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out North Dallas residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, our compassionate staff can determine if a nightguard or other dental appliance is appropriate to reduce grinding.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is exacerbated by stress because stress can result in an increase in dental plaque.
And Richardson dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in the Plano, Lake Highlands and Garland areas find that they eat more sugary snacks when they’re under stress.
If you’re concerned about the effect stress can have on your teeth, schedule an appointment at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry today. We offer cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants, and adult orthodontics. We hope to hear from you soon!
If you are researching orthodontics, you have probably heard about clear aligners. They offer several advantages over traditional metal braces. The most popular benefit is the fact that they are nearly invisible.
Millions of individuals have aligned their teeth with aligners in the past twenty years since they were introduced.
We’re here to help with your research. Note that your orthodontist may not offer all types of clear aligners. This post is for informational purposes only.
Invisalign pioneered clear aligner orthodontics. Established in 1997, Invisalign has shaped more than 6 million smiles throughout the world.
Invisalign (as with the other types) uses virtual modeling software to create custom aligners formed specifically for your teeth.
First, you’ll start with a consultation where an orthodontist will evaluate your teeth. They will work with you to determine which Invisalign treatment plan will work best for your teeth, lifestyle, and dental goals. Then, they will set you up with aligners that are customized for you.
It’s critical to note that you will never be left on your own to figure out what step is next. Your orthodontist will be with you every step of the way. Finally, you just live your life, while sticking to the guidelines set out for you by your doctor.
This is how the company describes their product: Clear. Simple. Friendly. Made of polyurethane, these aligners can straighten your smile discreetly and effortlessly.
ClearCorrect is run by a team of highly trained professionals. They have added many innovations to the diagnostic and treatment process. Many orthodontists believe it’s the most convenient system for both patients and doctors.
Over 10,000 doctors use ClearCorrect. Many ClearCorrect providers offer flexible payment plans.
SmileDirectClub (And Other At-Home Systems)
Though we don’t recommend this system, let’s talk about the “mail-order orthodontics” products. We are including an explanation of SmileDirectClub and other at-home systems so you’ll understand their potential dangers and limitations.
SmileDirectClub provides custom clear aligners without regular office visits. They advertise an average cost savings of 60%. They report that the average length of treatment is 6 months.
All aligner systems necessitate a 3D image of your teeth. With Invisalign and ClearCorrect, your dentist creates the scan in their office.
With SmileDirect, you can visit one of their “SmileShops” for a scan. There are SmileShops in every U.S. state but you may have to make a long trip. They also provide you the option of taking your own impression using their at-home kit.
Your treatment is supposedly monitored by a dentist or orthodontist—but you don’t visit them in person. Your dentist doesn’t take X-rays or examine your progress.
Because of this, we don’t recommend these types of systems. Your smile is too important to use a DIY approach. Your teeth could end up worse than before! The problems could be expensive to correct. In a worst-case setting, you could experience permanent damage.
The American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists have published warnings against at-home orthodontics.
Schedule a consultation at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry to determine which system is best for you.
Today’s message focuses on some nifty dentistry advances that are used behind-the-scenes to benefit Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry urgent care patients.
Digital imaging is not just for Instagram and Pinterest. Most Texas dental offices use digital X-Rays.
Realtime digital images help Dr. Goad diagnose and treat oral problems. Digital X-Rays require far less radiation exposure and are easier to store and access.
Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used for emergency root canals, crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, oral lesion removal, and treatment of dental decay. Laser procedures are easier on the patient and require shorter healing times.
CAD/CAM for Same-Day Restorations
CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many procedures at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry. These include in-office inlays/onlays, same-day CEREC crowns, and dental implants.
Quality urgent care service requires experience, expertise, and the latest dental technology. You’ll find them here at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry.
Richardson dentist Dr. Kerry Goad of Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry provides excellence in cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, sleep apnea and snoring treatment, general dentistry and so much more for patients from all over the North Dallas, Texas area including from the communities of Richardson, Lake Highlands, North Dallas, Lake Highlands, Garland, and Allen TX.
