Many people fear going to have their teeth looked at for various reasons. The thought of someone digging around in their mouths and using huge needles and drills has put people off going to see a professional for decades. However, the office connected to a general dentistry clinic is far removed from the older style clinics. With a cosmetic dentist, the patient is made to feel at ease and will probably appreciate the way in which he is handled. For many years these professionals were paid for how many teeth were actually extracted. This meant, obviously, that the professional was much more likely to yank out any tooth that was considered to be less than perfect.
Bad breath or also known as Halitosis caused embarrassment to people. It usually smells like rotten meat or spoiled eggs. And it is the leading reason of dental aid, followed by tooth decay and periodontal diseases. It is an unpleasant odor that is caused by bad bacteria. Aside from the mouth and tongue, the nose, tonsillitis, esophagus and even the stomach may contribute to it. However, dentists have identified the first two to have halitosis originated from the mouth and tongue. Leftover food in between teeth catapults the growth of anaerobic bacteria. Bacteria digest these food particles and as by product produce a volatile sulphur compound that smells very foul.
Hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening is a topic that has been widely debated. First lets start off by mentioning what hydrogen peroxide is exactly. It is a chemical that is made up of hydrogen and oxygen. It has many uses. Paper and textile companies often use it as a bleaching agent. It can also be used a disinfectant or antiseptic on an open wound. In addition, it is used as a teeth whitening agent. When I first heard about people using it to whiten teeth I was a bit surprised. It had just never crossed my mind that it could be used in this way. Many people have had success, though, using some form of it to whiten their teeth. Most of the time, this chemical is not applied directly to the teeth in its raw form.
So many people today are talking about dental veneers. Perhaps you have heard the term; but you might not completely understand what they are. You may have a friend or a family member who recently got them, and their smile is all of a sudden transformed from the standard one that you remember into one that is dazzling, white, and seemingly perfect. What are Porcelain Veneers? Though you may have seen the result of a porcelain veneers - you may not understand how that dazzling white smile came to be. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to a person's tooth-most often multiple teeth-to enhance a person's smile. They can be used to make a smile whiter when teeth are dark from tetracycline stains, or if teeth are broken and/or make teeth that are crooked seem perfectly in line with the other teeth.
The presence of spaces is a major source of frustration and embarrassment to many patients, preventing them from smiling openly. A space between teeth is also called a Diastema.

Even though there have been some positive changes in federal and state funded programs for this and other long-neglected populations that have limited access, I believe that inequality in the delivery of proper dental care still exists. I have a confession to make. When I was in dental school in the early 1970's, I had very lofty dreams. The Vietnam War was winding down, and it was a time of peace and love and caring for your fellow man.
