We Offer Numerous Preventative and Cosmetic Solutions
Dental Hygiene Services
Food particles, plaque, and bacteria can build up in your mouth even when you brush and floss regularly. This can lead to common dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth extraction. At Artistic Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use special scaling equipment to get your teeth exceptionally clean. This includes the tight areas between teeth where decay can develop due to the difficulty of reaching these spots with a toothbrush or dental floss. We also polish your teeth at your bi-annual cleaning, which is a level of cleanliness you just can’t achieve on your own.
It’s a common misconception among parents that taking care of baby teeth isn’t as important as caring for permanent teeth because they fall out anyway. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Poor oral hygiene with the primary teeth can cause serious and long-term problems when your child starts getting his or her permanent teeth. We encourage parents to start cleaning their baby’s gums with a warm, damp cloth before he or she even has teeth. This prevents the spread of bacteria.
Early visits to the dentist are important to help set the stage for your child to have a positive view of the experience. Our dentists and assistants take this responsibility seriously by making the appointment as comfortable and stress-free as possible for both of you.
If you hold back smiling because your teeth aren’t as white as you would like them to be, you owe it to yourself to check into professional teeth whitening. This is one of the most popular and budget-friendly cosmetic dentistry services that we offer to people in Miami and the surrounding communities. Feel free to schedule a consultation to learn more about the different types of teeth whitening and to see before and after pictures of other patients. Dr. Elejabarrieta will let you know if you’re a good candidate for in-office or at-home teeth whitening.
A chipped tooth from an accident, stained teeth, slightly misshapen teeth, or a larger than usual gap between two teeth can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. Perhaps you’re concerned that people will become distracted by the imperfection, but you don’t need to be when you have a porcelain veneer installed at Artistic Smiles. Dr. Elejabarrieta has many years of experience transforming smiles of children, teens, and adults through the simple process of applying a porcelain veneer to the front of a tooth.
Dental implants are quickly becoming the restorative treatment of choice for people who are missing one, several, or all of their natural teeth. It’s easy to see why when you consider that dental implants look completely natural and function just like your regular teeth do. They also offer numerous other benefits, including:
- No noticeable change in your speech pattern
- Returned bite strength and ability to chew almost any food
- Prevents facial sagging
- Helps to maintain proper alignment by preventing existing teeth from shifting towards open spots
- No embarrassment from your teeth slipping out of place or even falling out of your mouth
- No need to remove teeth at night or purchase special cleaning products for them
In short, these benefits can increase your quality of life. If you have lost teeth due to an accident or dental disease, please don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation to discuss your replacement options.
Root canals have gotten a bad reputation over the years, but the truth is that not treating an infected tooth causes much more discomfort than the procedure itself. In addition to pain, swelling, and tooth sensitivity, you might notice bleeding, a pus-filled sac on your gum line, or persistent bad breath.
However, it’s important to realize that some people who need a root canal don’t display any symptoms at all. That is just one reason why keeping your bi-annual appointments at Artistic Smiles of Miami is so important. Dr. Elejabarrieta looks for signs of infection and instructs you to schedule a root canal if necessary. If you need the procedure, you can feel confident that our staff does everything possible to ensure your comfort.
