Dr. Arash Aflatooni is a popular cosmetic dentist who has been practicing in the Seattle area for over a decade. One of the most requested cosmetic treatments offered at his Mill Creek, WA office is porcelain veneers. Thanks to veneers, your dentist can give worn, Veneersdamaged or discolored teeth a makeover in just a couple of appointments. Learn about porcelain veneers and how they can give you a fresh, renewed, beautiful smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?
When high-profile celebrities and stars request what is called a "Hollywood smile," it almost always involves porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, wafer-like coverings that are designed to fit over the front surface of your teeth. Though they are about as thin as a fingernail, they are actually very durable and resilient. 

How Do Veneers Refresh Your Smile?
Veneers refresh your smile by covering up the imperfections on your existing teeth. People who have intrinsic staining, which cannot be whitened away, can get the white teeth they want. Those with poorly shaped teeth or chipped and cracked teeth are great candidates as well. Since veneers are made of a high-quality porcelain material, they look smooth, pearly white, and very attractive when you smile. Your Mill Creek, WA dentist will find the perfect shade to brighten up your smile and make it look brand new.

What to Expect at Your First Veneers Appointment
At your first appointment, the dentist will examine your X-rays to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough to support veneers. Dental therapies are available to help strengthen and reinforce bone tissue if necessary. Your dentist will also evaluate the shape and position of your existing teeth to determine which ones would benefit from porcelain veneers. You can expect to have your finished veneers in about two relatively short appointments (depending on the number of veneers required).

Are missing teeth making you look older than you really are? Then dental implants may be for you. Dental implants are an efficient and common way for Dr. Aflatooni to replace your missing teeth to help you get your smile and appearance back. They are made up of titanium and other materials that are well suited with the human body.
 
Your overall quality of life is sure to be enhanced with the replacement of your teeth. With an implant-supported tooth or teeth replacement, your smile and facial structure will look more natural. Increased comfort and confidence while smiling, speaking and eating is one of the many benefits. Digital Dental Implant
 

Facial Atrophy and Missing Teeth

Missing teeth causes bone loss in the jaws. The loss of bone over time affects more than just your mouth. Facial sagging, premature aging, and loss of function are all results of atrophy in the upper and lower jaws. Patients who wear dentures find this to happen quite frequently. Since dentures sit over the gums, the jaw continues to shrink because the bone is not stimulated by the presence of teeth. Dentures usually have to be refitted over time due to shrinkage.
 
If dentures have caused you so many problems over the years, including a sagging facial structure, it’s time to consider dental implants. When dental implants are placed, the bone is stimulated and can be regenerated to a degree. Bone grafts can also be performed when you are lacking a sufficient amount of jawbone. This builds up enough support for the implants. 
 
So the rule of thumb—the sooner implants are placed, the better.
 

Dental Implants Procedure

Here is the behind the scenes of what goes on during a dental implant procedure. 
  1. We insert the screw-like implant into the jaw and wait until the gum tissue and jawbone make contact with the implant. 
  2. Place an abutment (the connecting piece between an implant and crown) onto the implant. 
  3. Create a synthetic crown based on your tooth shade and shape. 
  4. Place the synthetic crown onto the abutment, securing the tooth replacement.

Dental Implants Offer Long Term Benefits to Patients

At Advanced Dental in Mill Creek, Dr. Aflatooni is confident that dental implants will provide long-term benefits for our patients. There are times when a tooth can be knocked out or a tooth has to be removed. Considering dental implants as a solution is a clever decision. Dental implants offer patients comfort and leisure when it comes to tooth replacement. Dental Implants
 
Replacing missing teeth has become an important aspect to modern dentistry. The focus is now placed on both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, which creates high functional and natural looking teeth. When a patient loses a tooth, subsequent loss of the bone in the jaw, where the natural root used to be, creates a problem that can cause dental health issues. This is why dental implants are the solution for you.
 
Dental implants offer patients a permanent replacement; making implants a long-term advantage. The new prosthetic tooth is anchored into the jawbone with a post that mimics the root of a tooth. The implant acts like a regular tooth that helps to create natural bone growth to support the tooth structure.
 
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for dental implants. In order for the implants to be successful, you must have strong bone density and a healthy immune system. Dental implants also entails strict oral hygiene.
 
Mill Creek residents should contact Dr. Aflatooni to learn more about dental implants and the long-term benefits they can offer you.

Dentures and bridges are an affordable and simple way to resolve cosmetic and functional issues caused by missing teeth, but they’re temporary and can be difficult to manage over time. Some people want a solution that they won’t have to think about every day. They don’t want to have to remove their dental appliance each night for sleeping or cleaning. Those patients often opt for dental implants. Mill Creek, WA dentist Dr. Arash Aflatooni offers this service at his local practice. Dental Implants
 

A Permanent Fix for a Toothless Smile

A full and healthy smile can have a very real effect on the way we interact with others and even on our success in life. A 2012 Kelton Research study found that three in four Americans trust someone more when they have a nice, healthy looking smile. Also, when you hesitate to smile because of a missing tooth, it shows a lack of self-confidence.
 
Dental implants are permanent way to resolve this issue and give you the bright, full smile that you’ve always wanted. A structure is inserted into the jawbone that can support a custom-made tooth the same way that your natural teeth are rooted into the bone. You can go forward with your life as if you never lost a tooth.
 

Dental Implants History

Concerns about having a nice smile didn’t start in the 21st century. People in ancient times were also concerned about the appearance of their teeth. They created primitive dental implants from tooth-colored stones and shells that were modified and sometimes forced below the jawline. As you can imagine, this didn’t always provide a viable, permanent solution. Thankfully, today we have more comfortable and modern procedures involving anesthesia and special tools to ensure a long-lasting result. The modern tooth implantation techniques that Mill Creek WA dental implant dentist Dr. Arash Aflatooni uses were being developed as early as the 1970s.
