Need a holistic dentist to remove my amalagam fillings.

I am trying to eliminate harmful chemicals and materials from my diet, products, and health practices. I have done a lot of research on sanitary amalgam removal and want to find a holistic dentist that will do it for me.

Botched porcelain veneers gave me uneven gums

I recently had porcelain veneers done. My dentist has been raving about how beautiful they will be and what a difference they will make in how I feel about myself. I got to see them in the mirror before he permanently cemented them on and I thought they were going to be wonderful. But after…

My face is numb after getting a some teeth extracted.

Can’t quit coffee! Will it stain Invisalign?

I have almost convinced my husband to get Invisalign but he keeps telling me that coffee will stain the trays. Please tell me otherwise. I don’t want anyone to know I’m straitening my teeth. I know (and so does my hubby) that I will not stop drinking coffee. Will it make the trays yellow? –…


3D Printing Is Coming To Dental Offices

Imagine walking into your dentist’s office and having something ready for you in an hour, such as a dental crown. Crazy right? Something like that would normally take a week or more to get made. Your mold must be sent to a lab, then made in the lab, then sent back to the dentist. It’s…


Can you shorten porcelain veneers?

My sister and I are identical twins and we have both been looking into getting porcelain veneers. We both grew up with some minor crookedness. We also both have really tiny-looking teeth.
