3 Smart Smile Solutions

At Five Star Dental Care we want our patients to have the best oral health possible. We also want you to have a beautiful smile. That’s why we offer a wide array of cosmetic dentistry services.

Tooth Implants
For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.

When the final crown is affixed, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Dental implants have many  advantages over dental bridges or dentures.

Invisible Braces
Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. There are a couple of different types of invisible braces including Damon Braces and Invisalign clear aligners.

White Fillings
If you had tooth decay in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly upgrading your smile without crowns.

Headaches Or Jaw Pain? Invisalign in Valrico

unexplained jaw pain

Malocclusion is the dental term for a problem in the way your top and bottom teeth come together. The ideal bite is when the upper teeth are slightly forward of the lower teeth. In many cases, a bad bite can be corrected with Invisalign clear braces, from Five Star Dental Care in Valrico.

You have probably heard of overbites and underbites, but the two arches can be misaligned in many other ways. Crowded teeth can also cause a bad bite, as well as the opposite situation, teeth that are too far apart.

If the misalignment is slight, there are often no related issues. But if it’s moderate to severe, the patient is at risk for other issues such as headaches or jaw pain, difficulty chewing and speaking, hearing problems, increased decay, and gum disease.

The domino effect of these issues can get pretty serious. For example, chewing difficulty can trigger ulcers and gum disease increases the risk of stroke and heart disease. Consider also how these problems can impact a patient’s emotional well-being and ability to perform their job.

There are several effective treatments for malocclusion, and you may be a candidate for Invisalign clear braces. If you suspect you have a misaligned bite, call Five Star Dental Care in Valrico to schedule a consultation and exam. We provide cosmetic dentistry and other services.

Undetectable: Invisalign Clear Braces in Valrico

Invisalign clear braces produce excellent results in many patients. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets or rubber bands. Even better, they are almost undetectable to people who are standing just a few feet away from you. You can get Invisalign clear braces from Five Star Dental Care in Valrico.

Invisalign clear braces are so undetectable that some people call them invisible. Of course, they are not invisible, like the guy in the “invisible man” movies is.

They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” They are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth to gradually bring them into alignment.

One of the things that people like best about Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.

Invisalign clear braces are a great choice for adults who didn’t have braces when they were younger, but don’t want to wear traditional braces at work. They are not, however, for everyone. They are not good for patients who, for example, have severely rotated teeth.

To find out if Invisalign clear braces are right for you, schedule a consultation with Five Star Dental Care in Valrico. We also provide a full range of cosmetic dentistry services, including porcelain and prepless veneers, and teeth whitening. Make an appointment with us today.

Marvel to Mainstream: Dental Implants in Valrico

Millions of Americans are missing one or more of their teeth. That’s something that would make anyone self-conscious. If you have lost a tooth because of an injury or disease, a dental implant from Five Star Dental Care in Valrico can restore your smile.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. Once they are in place, they look and function like natural teeth.

Modern implants have been around for about fifty years. They used to be uncommon, but today they are considered part of mainstream dentistry. With today’s digital technology, dental implants can be placed in the patient’s jaw with nearly one hundred percent accuracy.

Not everyone is a viable candidate for a dental implant, because you need to have enough bone mass to support one. Even if you don’t, there is a solution: bone grafting can give you enough.

Most patients who receive a dental implant find that they are stable, and an excellent replacement for their natural tooth. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures.

Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant can transform your life. To find out more, call Five Star Dental Care in Valrico. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, including porcelain veneers, and clear braces from Invisalign. Schedule a consultation with us today.
