Who’s Afraid Of The Big, Bad…Dentist?

October 12, 2018

sleep dentistry North Dallas

People with dental phobia (Dentophobia) may take comfort in the fact that it is a fairly common condition. At least they know they are not alone and that the medical community takes it seriously. And with sedation options from Richardson Cosmetic dentistry, you can still get the dental care you need.

Phobias like Pteromerhanophobia: (the fear of flying) and Acrophobibia (the fear of heights) can be difficult, but a person can live a perfectly healthy life without getting on an airplane or riding an elevator to the top of the Chrysler Building.

Someone with dental phobia or dental anxiety, on the other hand, is at risk of entering a vicious cycle of declining oral health.

Fear causes the person to skip dental checkups for years. When a minor dental issue (like a little cavity) proceeds until it reaches a nerve and causes pain, the patient is forced to visit the dentist.

At this point, the necessary therapy is an extensive procedure (possibly an extraction followed by a dental implant). The treatment reinforces the dental phobia and, once again, the patient stays away from the dentist’s office. That’s how some people end up losing teeth at a relatively young age.

Experts believe that the rate of dental phobia may be as high as one in four people. Are you one of them?

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, we want to help distressed patients manage their fear so they can endure twice-yearly checkups and cleanings. Preventive dentistry is the only way to protect teeth and gums.

We offer three levels of sedation: nitrous oxide, or laughing gas; oral conscious sedation, which involves taking a sedative; and IV sedation, which as its name indicates involves intravenous sedatives.

Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry offers sedation so you can get the dental health care you need. Our services include general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry

October 5, 2018

Affordable Richardson Cosmetic DentistryWill your dental insurance cover cosmetic dentistry procedures, like those available at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry? Many people assume theirs won’t cover procedures done solely for cosmetic reasons.

This is probably true for tooth whitening or dental bonding. However, many dental insurance plans and supplemental plans cover orthodontia and any treatment required to repair damage from an injury. Medical insurance and worker’s compensation plans may also cover injury treatment.

Ask Your Provider, You May be Surprised

Some dental insurance plans cover replacement porcelain veneers in certain circumstances. Check with your carrier for benefit particulars if you need replacement veneers due to deterioration. We can then consider treatment options such as replacement veneers or porcelain crowns. When the process is completed, we may be able to help you submit your dental claim form if your plan requires one.

Talk to Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are in need of any kind of dental treatment, from a cleaning to major restorative work, come in to Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry. You can meet our team, undergo a thorough evaluation, and discuss financing options. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment

September 28, 2018

Richardson Pediatric DentistryWishing for a whiter, more beautiful smile but not sure how to get it? New to tooth whitening lingo? At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, we educate patients on the variety of teeth whitening treatments; from whitening trays to teeth bleaching to Opalescence whitening.

Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains

Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten teeth. But is it an uphill battle? As we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use.

Tooth enamel, while one of the toughest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth result in staining and discoloration. You probably have already discovered that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.

Powerful Peroxide

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening ingredients. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to clear away the build-up and help restore the former color.

Call Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry to schedule a cosmetic dentistry appointment and we will explain your teeth whitening options. And then we’ll get to work on your beautiful smile.

Rather Have A Root Canal?

September 21, 2018

Richardson EndodonticsHave you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our patients, and many report minimal discomfort.

Root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many patients, the procedure is no more stressful than getting a filling.

Root canal therapy is necessary to save a tooth. It treats the interior of a tooth that is severely decayed or infected. In most cases, the only other option is to extract the tooth. That’s something is try to avoid.

How do you know if you need a root canal? You should meet with us right away if you experience tenderness or pain, hot or cold sensitivity, tooth discoloration, tooth injury, gum swelling, gum pain, or lymph node tenderness or drainage.

In some cases there are no symptoms. That is why it is important to visit the Richardson Dentist every six months for a thorough dental examination and dental cleaning.

In addition to root canals, The Richardson Dentist provides a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry For You?

September 14, 2018

Richardson smile makeover

Many of the patients who visit Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry have questions about cosmetic dentistry. There is some reliable information online, but there are many questions that only a cosmetic dentist can answer.

New improvements in cosmetic dentistry have made it safe, affordable, and worth your consideration if you want to improve your smile and look younger. With cosmetic dentistry, you can whiten your smile, straighten crooked teeth, modify a gum line, or restore a tooth.

We can achieve remarkable results without resorting to procedures that require longer recovery times. Tooth whitening, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, and veneers work miracles and can often be completed in one visit.

Some more extensive dental issues require more than one visit to our Richardson office. We can help you determine the level of cosmetic dentistry you will need to get the smile you want—from one or two procedures to a complete smile makeover.

We want you to be comfortable with any cosmetic or general dentistry decisions you make. Give The Richardson Dentist a call; we look forward to answering your questions.

What Can The Dentist Do For You?

August 24, 2018

Hello, and welcome to the Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry blog. Our team of dentists works hard to keep the teeth and gums of each of our patients healthy.

Teeth may seem like bone, but they are actually living structures. Inside that hard exterior is complex system of tissue. And the teeth themselves are anchored to your jaw by ligaments and a material called cementum.

Because there is so much more to teeth than meets the eye, we urge our patients to take good care of theirs by brushing and flossing twice a day, and by visiting our office twice a year for cleanings and a checkup. Our hygienists will remove any accumulation of plaque and tartar that has built up, and one of our dentists will give your teeth and gums a thorough inspection.

Why do we stress this? Because research has shown there is a connection between the health of your teeth and your overall physical health. In short, a healthy mouth can help you maintain a healthy body.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, we provide general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

Cavities can be filled, but it is better to maintain your oral health in the first place. If your dentist seems to conjure up cavities at every visit, then it’s up to you to break the cycle. Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry is here to help you. Let’s work together.

How can you lift the cavity curse? Schedule a preventative dental consultation and examination at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry. You will be served by several members of our friendly team. One of our experienced dental hygienists will give your teeth and gums the best cleaning they have ever received.

We will perform a thorough examination and discuss your dental conditions and goals. We welcome questions about brushing, flossing, diet, medical issues, and lifestyle choices. These are all factors that affect your dental health.

Here at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, as much as we love to see our patients, we would prefer they all enjoyed healthy smiles and only had to visit a couple times a year for cleanings and checkups. Use preventative dental visits to improve your oral care techniques and break the cavity curse.

You Can’t Afford Cheap Dental Work

August 10, 2018

Richardson teeth whitening

Have you ever gotten an unbelievable bargain on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of nonstop repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new car would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a a dud. The team at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry reminds you, the same is true of deficient dental work.

You have probably received glossy postcard ads that proclaim amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry. The prices may be enticing, but be sure you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that tout low procedure prices in their ads furnish deficient work—we are just cautioning patients not to elect a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike an automobile, you can’t sell your used smile and buy a new one.

We will use porcelain veneers as an example. What can go wrong if you end up with substandard porcelain veneers?

  • The dentist may be inexperienced and make mistakes: improper placement, inadequate color matching, bite complications.
  • The materials may be unsatisfactory: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off.
  • The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out shoddy work: unnatural color, poor fit.

If you are considering a smile redesign, meet with Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry first. During your consultation, you will learn about our years of experience, techniques, specialty training, and the number of procedures performed.  You will learn about the best suited materials for the restorations and receive information about the dental lab we use. We can also provide references if requested. And, of course, we will discuss how much each treatment will cost.

Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry also provides general dentistry. Make an appointment today.

Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

August 3, 2018

Garland cosmetic smile makeover

Hello Richardson! Welcome to the Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry-Kerry M. Goad, DDS dental blog. Let’s talk about beautiful smiles and smile redesigns. Some Richardson patients wonder if  the latter is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a stunning smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile redesign combines several carefully-chosen cosmetic dentistry procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile metamorphosis. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, tooth-colored filling replacement for old amalgam fillings, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.

When Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry designs a custom smile makeover, we study several elements in addition to the teeth. After all, the teeth are just one component of the patient’s face. The gumline, lips, mouth, facial shape, facial structure, coloring, and patient’s age affect the scope of the design. This comprehensive approach to a smile makeover achieves amazing results and sets our practice apart.

To find out more about the beautiful smiles we create, schedule a consultation with Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX.
