How smoking effects your teeth

The effect of smoking on your teeth is right at the sharp end. Many studies have shown that smoking and using tobacco products has a detrimental effect on your teeth and gums. The problem is caused by the fact that tobacco affects the gum tissue cells, making smokers more prone to getting infections in the form of gum and periodontal diseases.

Here’s what else is does; bad breath, stained teeth, jawbone loss, shrinking gums, mouth sores, decreased senses of taste and smell, poor healing of mouth sores and hairy tongue.

The risks of smoking

In worse case scenarios it can cause serious illness. Smoking is the main cause of mouth cancer, with thousands of people dying every year from mouth cancer brought on by smoking.

As dental professionals, it is important for us to tell you the risks of smoking and to help you to quit by giving you information and support. By cutting down and stopping smoking or using tobacco products your preventative care will benefit very quickly and you will notice changes in your mouth. It is essential that you come into the practice for regular check-ups so we can help you maintain good preventative care and give you advice and encouragement.

Zoom into Composite Bonding!

The sustained increase in home working and use of Zoom, and other face to face virtual communications has meant we predict this year will lead to a surge in Composite Bonding treatments. People are more conscious of their smiles and how it comes across on camera so want to fix it before we go back to normal. Composite bonding is one of the easiest ways to solve different dental problems including chipped or cracked teeth, decaying teeth, discoloured teeth, spaces between teeth, or restoring lost teeth structure. It is a very versatile treatment which involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to existing teeth. The resin is moulded by clinicians so that it creates a perfect match with the surrounding teeth. It is widely used across the world for whitening or masking discoloured teeth, improving cosmetic structure, filling dental gaps or cavities, and repairing broken or fractured teeth. Have you considered composite bonding? www.together.dental/contact/

'Wrinkles will only go where the smiles have been'!

Over time muscles in our face tighten and cause lines on our face. The most common areas where wrinkles form are around the eyes, forehead and between the eyebrows. Though growing old is a part of life, we understand the desire to treat these lines. Here at Together Dental we offer facial rejuvenation treatments to those looking for soft and subtle improvements to help them achieve a more youthful look.

Treatments are carried out by our highly experienced team and the benefit of having this treatment done by dentists is that they have a thorough knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy and can perform this delicate work in a precise and safe manner. Book an appointment today www.together.dental/contact/
