Is Your Smile In A World Of Hurt?

full mouth reconstruction Tampa

Do you have extreme tooth damage, bone loss, or few or no teeth still intact? This post is for Tampa area residents whose mouths are in a world of hurt.

First off, we feel for you. We understand how severe dental problems influence you every day of your life.

Whatever the cause of the condition – chemotherapy, recreational drug use, eating disorder, severe mouth injury, disability, inadequate oral hygiene, or simply poor overall health – there is hope.

Full mouth reconstruction can restore your previously healthy, pleasing smile or give you the unforgettable smile you never had. Patients who undergo full mouth reconstruction regain their confidence to smile, eat, and speak normally. How would that affect your life?

Replacing missing teeth and adding bone through grafting restores underlying facial structure, improving or preventing that “sunk-in” look that develops when teeth are gone and the jawbone recedes.

Full mouth reconstruction (sometimes called full mouth restoration) is a term which refers to a combination of dental procedures that restore a smile for people with numerous damaged or missing teeth. Treatment may include any combination of the following procedures: crowns, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, white filling replacement, tooth implants, porcelain veneers, implant-anchored dentures, gum contouring, soft tissue grafts, bone grafts, and tooth whitening.

Dental implants are typically the best tooth replacement for patients with missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. If there is not enough bone to anchor an implant, bone grafting may be completed to augment existing bone. The post integrates with the bone to provide a durable foundation for the abutment and beautiful crown. Dental implants are indistinguishable from former teeth in both form and function.

If you currently have dentures, talk to us about implant-anchored full or partial dentures. Significant improvements can be made even if you only get two or three tooth implants.

Crowns (sometimes called caps) are used when there is enough viable tooth structure that the tooth doesn’t need to be extracted. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured. A crown can correct a bite misalignment and is usually required after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.

Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS offers a full menu of cosmetic dental care including total mouth reconstruction. Cosmetic dentistry may be more economical than you think. Talk to us about financing or a multi-procedure treatment schedule that allows you to pay as you go. Restoring a healthy smile may be the best investment you ever make.

How Do You Measure Dental Success?

Valrico affordable family dentist

How do you measure “dental success?”A check-up with no cavities? A perfect smile? A crown that looks as natural as the surrounding teeth?

It could mean all those things and many more.

Dental success could be defined as a childhood free of cavities, learning daily dental hygiene practices, and gaining an understanding of why it’s important.

For children who are hesitant to smile because of misaligned teeth, dental success may mean getting braces to restore their confidence and boost self-esteem.

For a middle-aged man who neglected his teeth in his youth, dental success could be defined as restorative dentistry that stabilizes his dental condition and improves his oral health.

For a woman with tetracycline stains but otherwise healthy teeth, dental success may be as simple as speedy in-office same-day tooth whitening.

Consider a person with several missing teeth who can only eat soft foods. Dental success might require natural-looking implant-anchored dentures that allow them to eat steak for the first time in years.

What are your goals for your smile? What is the current state of your oral health? Schedule a consultation with Jeff Bynum.

At Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS, our goal is your complete satisfaction. We are enthusiastic about providing patient-focused dental care of the highest standard. We look forward to discussing your goals. You could be our next success story!

Five Fast Ways to Improve Your Smile

cosmetic dental and implants Valrico

Do you have a special event coming up? Perhaps a wedding, graduation, milestone birthday, anniversary, or reunion? These celebrations usually involve a lot of photographs and, of course, you want to look beautiful. You may not have time to lose 20 pounds, but you can dramatically beautify your smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Here are five cosmetic dental procedures that can usually be performed in one office visit.

1. Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been a successful treatment for decades but we never fail to be amazed by the wonderful results they provide. A veneer is a super-thin layer of porcelain bonded permanently to the tooth. A veneer can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discoloration disappear, or repair a misshapen tooth.

2. Gum Contouring
Perhaps your teeth are unforgettable and healthy but you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation. Gum contouring can reshape the gumline and transform your smile. Book a consultation with Dr. Bynum today for an intensive examination and superb counsel regarding your gumline.

3. Enamel Shaping
Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the characteristics of a smile even if all the other teeth have a pleasing appearance. (Your mouth is no place for a sore thumb, right?) Let Dr. Bynum reshape the tooth so it blends in seamlessly.

4. Bonding
Dental bonding just gets better and better as additional state-of-the art materials are developed. Bonding is used in a multitude of applications to repair teeth with cosmetic and structural issues. The newest prep processes are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure.

5. Teeth Whitening
Make your smile pop with professional in-office teeth whitening. There is nothing like an extraordinary white smile to give you maximum confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry is an investment that will bless you with increased self-esteem every day. We look forward to getting your smile ready for all those hugs, laughs, and, of course, pictures.

The Not-So-Obvious Benefits Of A Smile Makeover

smile makeover benefits Valrico

A smile makeover transforms the confidence of a person who has been embarrassed by their smile for years. But it’s not just about looking younger and more attractive—though it most certainly will do that. It can improve your life in ways you might not have considered.

How can a smile makeover transform your life?

1. It changes the way you are perceived by others.

An individual who smiles often and easily is typically regarded as a forward-thinking problem solver.

2. It brightens the atmosphere in social settings.

When you candidly smile, it is contagious. It enhances the mood in any setting and eases tension when needed.

3. You will feel more confident.

When you quit concentrating on making sure you hide your teeth, you have the drive to focus on ways to achieve success in personal and professional pursuits.

A smile transformation is an investment in yourself that you will be thrilled with every day. If you have ever wondered what unprecedented cosmetic dentistry can do for you, or have some dental problems, call Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS at 813-413-7518 to set up a smile makeover consultation.

Lasering In On Precision Dentistry

top dentist Valrico

The powerful, precise, highly-concentrated beam of light originally known as Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is so ubiquitous that the acronym has now been relegated to lower case.

Lasers are used in everything from weapons to barcode scanners. They have increased efficiency and advanced technology in numerous industries such as communications, manufacturing, and essentially every branch of science. Today’s post focuses on how lasers have impacted dentistry.

Lasers are now used in many state-of-the-art dental practices for a broad range of care. Lasers allow dentists to be extremely precise when working on both tooth and gum tissue.

Dentists use lasers to:

  • Remove decay while preserving more intact tooth material
  • Firmly attach bonding material to a tooth
  • Remove oral lesions or obtain tissue for biopsies
  • Reshape receded gums
  • Eliminate bacteria while performing root canals
  • Increase the effectiveness of tooth whitening agents

Dental patients benefit with:

  • Fewer stitches – some surgical procedures require no sutures when a laser is used
  • Faster healing
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Decreased damage to surrounding tissue/bone
  • Less pain – eliminates the need for anesthesia in many procedures

Dr. Bynum uses advanced dental technology to serve our valued patients. At Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS, we believe that every man, woman, and child deserves a beautiful smile and a lifetime of oral health.

For questions about laser dentistry, Invisalign, porcelain veneers or dental crowns, call 813-413-7518 today to schedule a consultation at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS in Valrico. We are located at 3203 Lithia Pinecrest Rd.

Have You Thanked Your Dental Assistant Lately?

Riverview FL Extreme Smile Makeover

Your Tampa dental practice would be a very different place if it weren’t for the expert dental assistants who work there.

Today in our Valrico, Florida dental blog we would like to highlight the importance of these hard workers who are often taken for granted.

Dental assistants make your dental appointment much more effective, efficient, and safe.

You, the patient, are prepared for treatment by dental assistants and, during services (such as filling cavities, placing crowns, root canals, or teeth whitening) the assistants speed things along by passing instruments, holding devices, and recording important information.

Most Riverview FL cosmetic dental patients would agree that anyone who helps to shorten their time in the dental chair is a person who deserves thanks!

Keeping the dental office clean and sterilizing instruments are other critical responsibilities taken on by dental assistants. What would we do without them?

My name is Jeff Bynum. I have been serving the Tampa area since 1996. The proficient dental assistants at my practice, Five Star Dental Care in Valrico, are world-class, along with the rest of our knowledgeable staff.

If you are looking for trusted dental care in Valrico, Brandon FL, Riverview FL, or Plant City, please give us a call at 813-413-7518. We can review your dental care needs as well as any cosmetic dentistry procedures you might be interested in, such as veneers, dental implants, gum contouring, or an extreme smile makeover.

7 Steps For A Healthy Smile

Tampa Extreme Smile Makeover

 “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Benjamin Franklin coined this phrase in the 1730s as advice for fire safety. However, like all timeless quotes, it applies to many more aspects of modern Valrico life, particularly dental health.

Keeping your smile beautiful and healthy is done most effectively with preventative measures. Some of the most important guidelines are highlighted here.

1. Make a habit of brushing your teeth. Do it twice a day for 2 minutes. Be sure to use an ADA approved toothpaste and toothbrush. They can be purchased at any Valrico, Florida area drugstore.

2. Don’t forget the floss! Flossing between your teeth daily will do wonders for your teeth and keep your gums healthy too.

3. Wear a protective mouthguard whenever you are engaged in an activity where your mouth could possibly be damaged. This includes many Tampa recreation league and school sponsored sports.

4. Don’t smoke. As if you needed yet another reason not to!

5. Avoid piercing your lips, tongue, cheek, or any other part of your mouth that someone decided you should shove a metal bar through. Piercings put you at greater risk for chipped teeth, infection and nerve damage. It’s a dangerous Valrico fashion that you’ll want to avoid.

6. Stay away from snacks that have a lot of sugar or starch.

7. Schedule regular dental visits, of course!

Is Perfect Possible?

Riverview FL Cosmetic Dentistry Are you evaluating a smile makeover? Are you skeptical of promises of a “perfect smile” or a “celebrity smile?” Let’s review the most popular cosmetic dental procedures and the results that can be expected.

Composite Veneers
The application of porcelain veneers at Five Star Dental Care can remedy several aesthetic dental issues and is usually a better answer than dental bonding.

Veneers can correct chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size. Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While a veneer cannot repair a decayed tooth, it can turn an unappealing tooth into an aesthetically perfect tooth.

Tooth Bleaching
Tooth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that dramatically improves a smile. However, some tooth whitening dentists will guarantee fantastic results for any patient that wants a whiter smile.

At Five Star Dental Care in Valrico, we only recommend tooth bleaching for patients that are good candidates for the process. If you have several crowns in the front of your mouth, or gums that have receded, conventional tooth-whitening may not lighten your smile.

Call 813-413-7518 to schedule a tooth-whitening consultation.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Would you like to turn back the clock to your pre-filling smile? It is possible with white fillings at Five Star Dental Care. To get an idea of how the inside of your mouth would look without unappealing metal amalgam fillings, have someone without any fillings open their mouth. Do you remember when your mouth looked like that?

These are just a few of the cosmetic dental answers that create dazzling smiles for our patients. Call us today!

Let’s Work Together To Keep Your Smile Healthy And Beautiful

low cost tooth bleaching Tampa

Here at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles – what we can do in our Valrico office and what you can do at home. For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for lightening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes more affordable.

Additionally, we advise you regarding food and drink choices that can affect your whitened smile. Be aware of staining culprits such as coffee, tea, tobacco and harsh sodas. We understand that avoiding these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.

Awareness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary drink can cut down on the contact your teeth have with such substances. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can lead to stronger staining and discoloration.

If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and creating a more confident appearance for your professional career or personal relationships, please pick up the phone and contact the incredible staff at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS today 813-413-7518. Dr. Jeff Bynum, DDS, takes pride in providing knowledgeable care and expertise when treating patients.

Come discover the personal attention with dental crowns, the patient and steady hand with teeth whitening, the wise and thorough instruction relating to Invisalign. Once you’ve scheduled a consultation, make the easy drive to 3203 Lithia Pinecrest Rd Valrico, Florida 33596 and settle in for guidance that will make your daily oral care and lifestyle choices productive and meaningful.

When it comes to hygiene and healthy teeth we are a practice that wants to see you as little as possible. (It’s not that we don’t love you – we just want you to have a healthy smile!) If we only see you twice a year for regular checkups then we’ve done our job. Check out our website at http://www.fivestardentalcare.com/ or come in for an evaluation and recommendations.

Dr. Bynum provides the full spectrum of dental services from cosmetic dentistry to restorative dentistry to dental implants. And we welcome patients from all over the area, from Tampa to Plant City and from Brandon FL to Riverview FL.
