When It’s Better Not To Brush

enamel erosion Palm Beach Gardens

Cuts heal. Bruises fade. Broken bones mend. The body’s ability to heal itself is truly amazing. But tooth enamel is different. When it’s gone, it’s gone.

Though thin and partially translucent, tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body and has the important job of protecting teeth from constant use and the continual assault of chemicals in food and drink. Enamel also shields tooth nerves from hot and cold food and beverages. That’s why enamel loss often causes tooth sensitivity.

The team at Weinberg Dentistry encourages our Palm Beach Gardens area patients to protect their tooth enamel for a lifetime of dental health.

This may seem counterintuitive, but sometimes it is better NOT to brush immediately after eating. Specifically, after eating acidic items. The acid weakens the enamel which can be further weakened by brushing. Waiting 60 minutes will allow the acid to dilute. Rinsing immediately after eating acidic foods is helpful, however, because it washes away some food particles and speeds up the dilution of the acid.

Some Juno Beach dental patients don’t realize that dry mouth can cause or exacerbate enamel erosion. The calcium and phosphate in saliva protects your enamel. When there is little saliva, the enamel is left unprotected. Chewing stimulates saliva production but constant snacking is not the answer for dry mouth. Chewing sugar-free gum and sipping water frequently can stimulate saliva production between meals without increasing the risk of decay or upping your calorie intake.

Not surprisingly, tooth grinding wears enamel away. If you are one of the many Juno Beach residents who grinds their teeth at night, it’s essential to get a mouthguard ASAP. People who grind their teeth are at a high risk for enamel erosion and the decay that can follow. Athletes should also protect their teeth on the playing field with a mouthguard. For more specifics, meet with Dr. Brion Weinberg at Weinberg Dentistry about custom mouthguards.

If you sip soda, tea, or coffee all day, we suggest you switch to water to halt any enamel erosion that has already occurred. It may be a hard change to make – but if you are successful – your teeth will thank you for it.

Using teeth as tools can harm enamel, as well. Take a moment to fetch scissors before tearing open a package or ripping duct tape with your teeth. Do you really want to take a chance on chipping a tooth just to open a package of lunchmeat?

Chewing ice and hard candy can also damage enamel. If you simply must have sugar, soft candy is best as long as it is not left to sit on teeth for long period of time. If your molars are packed with gummy candy all day, you will develop cavities which erodes enamel just as effectively as chipping it with hard candy. Many of the old-school hard candies we enjoyed as kids now come in soft versions. Enjoy them sparingly because constant sugar is bad for teeth. Period.

If you have already experienced enamel erosion or other dental problems, Dr. Brion Weinberg can help you protect what is left. To schedule an exam, contact Weinberg Dentistry in Juno Beach at 561-622-7220!

Protect Teeth From Cracks

Palm Beach cosmetic dental and adult braces

Ouch! No Palm Beach Gardens dental patient wants the pain and inconvenience of a cracked tooth, so today in the Weinberg Dentistry dental blog we are going to focus on how to avoid this preventable problem.

The first thing to remember is that avoiding a cracked tooth is not rocket science; you should steer clear of chewing on hard things if you don’t want a cracked tooth! This includes ice, hard candy, and (sorry cinephiles) popcorn.

Also, protect against any impact to the mouth that could be experienced during sporting events. If you are a member of a local Jupiter or West Palm Beach rec center basketball, ultimate frisbee, or flag football league, pick up a mouth guard at a Palm Beach Gardens area sporting goods store.

Tooth grinding is never a good thing, and it can even lead to a cracked tooth or temporomandibular conditions. Talk to your dentist, doctor, or physical therapist and try some stress reduction techniques to keep your jaw nice and relaxed.

Be sure to keep your regular check-ups with your Palm Beach dentist because your dentist can spot possible problems that could predispose you to a cracked tooth such as an uneven chewing surface or brittle teeth.

If you have a cracked tooth, you’ll want to pursue the correct course of treatment and, if needed, explore some cosmetic dentistry procedures to fix any visible damage such as veneers, a porcelain crown, or a dental implant.

Hi. I’m Dr. Brion Weinberg of Juno Beach. I practice general and cosmetic dentistry. My practice, Weinberg Dentistry, offers the following services:

Do You Want To Change The Shape Of Your Gums?

gum contouring West Palm Beach

Most Palm Beach Gardens dental patients know that cosmetic, restorative and orthodontic dentistry procedures improve your teeth. There are treatments to reshape teeth, straighten teeth, repair damaged teeth, whiten teeth, and replace missing teeth. But what about your gums? Do you realize how integral your soft tissues are to the overall appearance of your smile?

The shape and size of your gumline can make your teeth appear too large or too small or otherwise out of proportion. Gum contouring can correct gums that appear too low or too high in relation to the teeth and customize them for the perfect smile.

Juno Beach dental patients who are unhappy with their gums might want to consider gum contouring as part of a custom smile design. Many dentists and periodontists in Juno Beach offer gum contouring surgery.

This procedure is also called gingival sculpting, gingival contouring or gum graft surgery, but don’t let the term surgery frighten you. It is performed with a precision laser and is minimally invasive. The procedure usually involves little pain and requires no recovery time.

Gum reshaping is not always done for purely cosmetic reasons; it is also used to treat gum recession, a common condition that can lead to decay and tooth loss. In gum graft surgery, soft tissue is ordinarily taken either from the roof of the mouth, the area surrounding the site of the grafting, or a tissue bank. Gum grafts applied to exposed tooth roots protect teeth from continuing gum recession and decay and reduce tooth sensitivity. Of course, gum grafts often increase the attractiveness of the smile in the process.

If you are seeking more specifics about gum contouring, gum recession, or any other dental procedure, call Weinberg Dentistry today at (561) 420-0770 to schedule a smile redesign consultation.

Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

Palm Beach cosmetic smile makeover

Have you ever had to take an unexpected trip to the grocery store looking completely disheveled in a rush to buy an emergency item – say cough medicine for a sick spouse or a must-have poster board for your child’s school assignment? On such an occasion you will inevitably bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your ill-fitting sweatpants and stained T-shirt? Or worse yet, pajamas.

Our outward appearance affects the way we feel inside. In professional situations, don’t you feel more confident when you are wearing flattering, pulled-together business clothes? Aren’t you more likely to express your opinion when you are comfortable in your own skin?

When meeting someone for the first time, don’t you feel better when you are having a good hair day or have cleared up a recent bout of acne? Blind dates are brutal when you don’t feel at the top of your game.

Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost self-esteem for most Juno Beach folks. But do you know what people notice before any of these features? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Multiple studies have shown that fabulous teeth and eyes immediately capture attention. Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts. But stunning smiles are within reach because Juno Beach dentists can work miracles with innovative cosmetic dentistry.

With specialized training, finely honed skills, modern equipment and quality lab services, experienced dentists can turn unattractive smiles into stunning first-impressions using a variety of cutting-edge cosmetic dental procedures.

Artistic Smile Masterpieces At Weinberg Dentistry

Artistic Smile Masterpieces At Weinberg Dentistry

Hello Juno Beach friends of Weinberg Dentistry! Thanks for stopping by the ultimate cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are talking about personal transformation. Many Juno Beach men and women want to reinvent themselves in at least one aspect of their life.

Some Palm Beach Gardens people are training for a new career. Some Jupiter men and women have made a healthy lifestyle a priority by making better food choices and working out on a regular basis. Some West Palm Beach people are dedicating more attention to their personal relationships.

At Weinberg Dentistry, Brion Weinberg skillfully uses advanced cosmetic dentistry to transform lucky patients with complete smile makeovers.

A comprehensive smile redesign involves more than applying four or six porcelain veneers to the upper front teeth. Though veneers can dramatically improve a smile, a complete smile makeover is a total smile transformation.

Dr. Weinberg evaluates the condition, size, shape, alignment, and color of the teeth. These elements are created, meticulously refined, and integrated in perfect harmony. The cosmetic dental treatments Dr. Weinberg adeptly uses are dental crowns and bridges, inlays/onlays, short term braces, cosmetic bonding, crown lengthening, gum contouring, teeth whitening, and dental implants.

Like any artistic masterpiece, a perfect smile is far more than the sum of its parts.

If you have a vision for your dazzling smile, it can become a reality at Weinberg Dentistry. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation today by calling 561-622-7220 or visiting http://www.customsmiledesigns.com/meet-dr-weinberg/.

Are Dental Implants Worth It For Juno Beach?

Are Juno Beach Dental Implants Worth It? Are dental implants worth the investment? Absolutely!

A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and works like a natural tooth.

The actual dental implant material is usually titanium. A post is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation. This is important because the root replacement post helps prevent jaw bone deterioration that typically occurs after a tooth has been lost.

When the implant has integrated securely with the bone (it can take three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached.

The state-of-the art dental implants available in the Juno Beach and Jupiter area are extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can replace more than one tooth or anchor a dental bridge. Juno Beach denture wearers should know that tooth implants can also act as a sturdy base for partial or full dentures.

When calculating the cost of dental implants in Palm Beach Gardens, it’s vital to compare them to other restorative options such as a dental bridge.

Call 561-622-7220 to schedule a visit to discuss your dental goals and the possibility of affordable dental implants. If you are missing one or more teeth, you owe it to yourself to get dental implants information.
