Smiles for Life, 2018

It is one of the greatest win-win scenarios you can imagine: Crown Council’s Smiles for Life Foundation, and its annual campaign to raise money for dental care for some of the world’s neediest children.

From now through June, hundreds of Crown Council dental practices throughout North America are taking part in a special fundraiser. If you go to a participating dentist for a discounted teeth whitening, you’ll come away with more than just a dazzling smile. You’ll also know that you are supporting a very worthy cause.

You won’t pay the dentist for your whitening; participating dentists are donating their time. Instead, make a check out directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation. Half of the proceeds go to the dental practice’s local charity partner, and the rest goes to Smiles for Life. From there, it goes to children’s charities the world over. Underprivileged kids will receive much-needed, professional dental care.

Over the last twenty years, Crown Council’s Smiles for Life Foundation and Smiles for Hope have raised more than $40 million, benefitting hundreds of children’s charities. Along with partners at Esperanza International, the foundation also sponsors annual trips to the Dominican Republic. And with partners at Choice Humanitarian, there are also annual trips to Guatemala. Crown Council member dentists provide desperately needed dental care to the impoverished children.

Ultradent, the maker of Boost and Opalescence®, is donating the teeth whitening materials.

Crown Council member practices are dental professionals committed to excellence, to continuing education, and to giving back. No matter what type of treatment you need, if you choose an active Crown Council member dentist, you’ll know that you are in good hands.

The All-Important First Impression: Your Smile!

The All Important First Impression: Your Smile!What’s the first thing you notice when you meet someone? We all know that a bright, white, beautiful smile can get us noticed. Many dental patients come to their Crown Council dentists for teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and other cosmetic dental procedures to get their smile looking its best. One of the most common requests of Crown Council dentists is straight teeth.

But did you know there are actual health benefits to aligning those pearly whites?

1. Cleaner Teeth
Crowded and overlapping teeth make it harder for your toothbrush’s bristles to reach those tiny spots between teeth where bacteria collects. Food particles can also get trapped between teeth, and flossing gets harder when teeth overlap. Ever had to force your floss between teeth because of overcrowding? It might be time to see your Crown Council dentist about clear braces.

2. Smoother Chewing
Crooked teeth usually come together unevenly when you bite and chew. This can impact your ability to chew your food and even lead to problems with digestion.

3. Protected Soft Tissue
Uneven teeth can protrude into the mouth’s soft tissues (think the inside of your cheeks and lips) and cause discomfort. Over time this can lead to cuts and sores, or even infections.

4. Fewer Headaches
Crooked teeth can be quite the headache – literally. Because irregular teeth wear unevenly on your jaw, the pressure can lead to chronic problems including jaw strain and headaches.

5. Improved Diction
A twisted smile can lead to twisted speech! Tooth irregularities can be the culprit of several speech impediments, which can harm self esteem and lead to poor performance in school or at work.

If you’ve been thinking about setting your smile straight, we hope this information helps you in your decision to visit your Crown Council dentist. Feel free to ask any questions you have about improving your smile. Whether you’re looking for Invisalign clear braces, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental implants, or even a simple cleaning, your Crown Council dentist can answer any questions you might have.

Dentists make you nervous? Consider sedation dentistry. Your journey to a sparkling smile can be easy, breezy, and pain-free.

Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening

Brighten Your Smile With Teeth WhiteningHave you ever thought that it would be nice to whiten your teeth, but felt like it would be too much trouble or expense? The good news is, it’s not. Although in the past teeth bleaching was considered very expensive and cumbersome, advances have occurred and times are different now. You now have different options for brightening your smile. Here is an explanation of the two most effective ways for teeth whitening.

Traditional Bleaching Trays: This is the type of whitening that you are probably already familiar with. If you decide this is the right treatment for you, you will need to visit your dentist’s office. Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and then deliver custom trays that fit over your teeth perfectly. Your dentist will then provide a special gel composed of a whitening agent. You will fill your trays and wear them according to the schedule your doctor decides is appropriate. An advantage to this method is that you can whiten at a slower rate and with a lower concentration if your teeth are prone to sensitivity.

Zoom® Whitening: If you have heard of in-house teeth whitening, you most likely have heard about Zoom whitening. You can have your teeth whitened as many as 5 shades lighter in one dental appointment. If you don’t want the hassle of placing trays on every night, this may be the treatment that is right for you. Your friends and family will notice the beautiful change too! Sometimes individuals can experience sensitivity during this procedure, so be sure to discuss this with your dentist.

It’s never too late to get those coffee and age stains erased. Make sure that you choose a dentist that has experience in cosmetic dentistry procedures for the best possible outcomes.

What You Need To Know About Teeth Whitening

Your Crown Council Dentist Whitens TeethThere are many considerations that a person should make before committing to teeth whitening. If you decided to get a teeth whitening kit and bleach your teeth yourself, would you be happy if all of your teeth whitened except one? It is important to consult with you cosmetic dentist about tooth whitening because there are many potential obstacles. Here is a small list of possible outcomes:

  • Has your tooth had a root canal performed on it? Root canals can cause a tooth to discolor and, unfortunately, bleaching won’t change that.
  • Do you have exposed roots? These surfaces don’t tend to whiten very effectively. You may need to choose a different cosmetic procedure such as porcelain veneers.
  • Do you have veneers, crowns or bridges? Any of these will not bleach the same as your natural teeth and so you may need to replace these at the end of whitening to make them match.

You smile many times a day. You don’t want to have a glaring defect that you know you’re showing off every time you give a friendly hello. Your cosmetic dentist can help you avoid these issues. You just need to call!

White Teeth Equals A Youthful Smile

Tooth Whitening Equals A Youthful SmileOne of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. As we age, our teeth naturally become dull. This is why teeth bleaching can have a youthful effect on patients. Although it is easy to find whitening booths in the mall or OTC bleaching kits, whitening can have adverse effects and patients should talk to their dentist before doing anything to their teeth. There are a myriad of problems that can occur to result in a poor outcome. This can be due to crowns, fillings and even the natural enamel. For best results, discuss the different dental whitening options with your cosmetic dentist. Here are two methods that may be talked about:

Bleaching Trays – If you choose this procedure, your dental office will take an impression of your teeth and then make custom trays that fit snuggly over your teeth. The whitening process will occur over the next couple weeks. Your dentist will give you a schedule for when to wear the trays and he will give you a whitening gel that you place inside during each use. Often, you will wear them over night. One advantage of this method is that the whitening happens gradually so it tends to cause less sensitivity.

In Office Whitening – This is also known as Zoom or laser whitening. The great advantage of this method is speed! You can whiten your teeth by as many as 4-5 shades in one office visit. Your doctor will coat all of your teeth with a hydrogen peroxide solution similar to what is used in the trays but stronger. He will then use a light to speed the reaction. This is fast and efficient and you come out with a bright new smile; however, if you know you have sensitive teeth, then this may not be the procedure for you.

There are many methods to help you obtain the smile you want, even if there are obstacles in the way. Be sure to talk to your cosmetic dentist about your options and he will be sure to lead you on the right path.
