Have you ever thought that it would be nice to whiten your teeth, but felt like it would be too much trouble or expense?
So you’ve lost a tooth. Those wonderful, enamel-strong little pearly friends who are supposed to serve you for the rest of your life—you’ve lost one! What now?
You may be tempted to leave the gap in your mouth alone, especially if the tooth was in the back of your mouth and can’t be seen as easily as a front tooth. You wouldn’t be the only one; many folks have chosen to ignore tooth loss. Some leave it be, others get a bridge, and still others who have lost many teeth may opt for a denture.
It’s easy to think that tooth troubles stay in your mouth. The truth is, though, that oral disease can lead to sickness in other parts of the body, too. The latest studies have been showing a strong link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease.

It is incredibly gratifying when our patients walk out of their Crown Council dentist’s office with the smiles they have wished for for years!
Crown Council dentists make it our business not only to provide patients with the expert restorative, cosmetic, and general dental care they need, but to help them feel comfortable in the process. Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how little pain they experience (if any) getting dental treatments done by their Crown Council dentists.
