Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, helps your whole family stay healthy with great oral care. If you're concerned about the shade of your smile in the 60563 zip code, here are some tips from your dentist on staying stain-free.

Everyone wants to present their best smile, but some of the things we enjoy can be bad for our teeth and lead to staining. Use of any tobacco products can lead to staining, and your dentist will recommend quitting to lower your risk of oral cancer. If you've quit smoking, think about treating yourself to a teeth whitening treatment in our Naperville, IL, office.

There are some drinks that can stain the teeth if consumed often, like:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Wine
  • Sports drinks
  • Dark berry juices

Some foods can also stain teeth, for example:

  • Beets
  • Berries
  • Hard candy
  • Tomato sauce or ketchup
  • Soy sauce

It's best to have these foods and drinks moderately and enjoy them with water to rinse your teeth.

Of course, regular brushing and flossing are essential to a great oral health routine. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. This helps remove plaque to prevent tooth decay and staining of the teeth. Eating a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables can actually help clean your teeth while you eat.

If you want a brighter smile, consider a professional teeth whitening treatment. Many of our patients have tried drugstore products to whiten their teeth and these produce mixed results at best. These kits are actually easy to misuse and can damage your gums. At a teeth whitening appointment, your gums are protected and your teeth are monitored by a dental professional the entire time.

Advance Family Dental Care wants to help you present your best smile. Be careful what you eat and drink, and come see Dr. Zomorrodi for a teeth whitening treatment! Contact us for an appointment in Naperville, IL, at (630) 357-2332.

Tags: Cosmetic Fillings  

When you have a cavity, your dentist removes the tooth decay and places a filling. Fillings are also used to repair a broken or cracked tooth. Traditional fillings are made from silver and gold, but sometimes you want a filling that blends in with your natural teeth. If this describes your situation, you should try a cosmetic filling. Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care offers a wide variety of dentistry services to keep your teeth healthy. If you live in Naperville and need a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Zomorrodi can help. Keep reading to learn more about cosmetic fillings.

What is a Cosmetic Filling?

A cosmetic filling is a kind of filling that blends in with your natural tooth color. The dentist removes the decayed portion of your tooth and fills it with material the same shade as your tooth. This type of material is made from a composite resin that blends in with your tooth enamel. Dentists may use other materials to make cosmetic fillings too. They include porcelain, ceramic, or a mixture of glass and acrylic. A Naperville cosmetic dentist can help you determine which kind of filling is best for your unique situation.

 

What are the Benefits of Cosmetic Fillings?

When you choose cosmetic fillings instead of traditional fillings, you enjoy a wide variety of benefits. For example, cosmetic fillings:

  • Blend with your natural tooth color so they aren't noticeable when you smile
  • Are perfect for patients who are allergic to metal fillings
  • Require less preparation than a traditional fillin

Veneers can give our patients new and improved smiles in a matter of weeks.

Does the idea of having a perfect set of teeth seem like more of a dream than a possibility? If you have cracked, misshapen, worn, or crooked teeth, our Naperville, IL, dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi understands that you may feel more than a little self-conscious about your smile. The good news is that Dr. Zomorrodi and the team at Advance Family Dental Care offer dental veneers, a simple and effective way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

Veneers are False Nails for Your Teeth

While the metaphor might sound odd, just as false nails are used to elongate and improve the shape and appearance of your natural nails, dental veneers can improve the shape and size of your teeth while also hiding cosmetic flaws. Veneers are thin shells made from medical-grade porcelain that our Naperville, IL, family dentist will have uniquely made to fit your smile. Veneers can be used to cover all teeth or just a single tooth, depending on your needs.

Veneers Fix a Wide Range of Flaws

There are many things that veneers can be used to treat. You may be right for veneers if you are looking to correct:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
  • Small, stubby teeth
  • Discolorations and severe stains
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crowded, crooked, or overlapping teeth

Veneers are Minimally Invasive

Another reason people want to get veneers is that they can completely transform your smile without requiring in-depth tooth preparation. Veneers are extremely thin shells, so they won’t take up much room, but we will still need to shave off bits of enamel from your tooth before we can place and bond your veneers. Enamel removal is very minor and may even be unnecessary with certain types of veneers. Plus, this can often be done without needing local anesthesia.

Veneers May Strengthen Teeth

Veneers are made from porcelain, which is incredibly resilient. This means that this durable material can reinforce your natural teeth and may even protect them from damage. If you’ve been a teeth grinder in the past your teeth may be a bit weaker. By getting veneers, we can provide your natural smile with more support to strengthen your smile for the long run.

Our Naperville IL dentist can easily determine whether veneers are right for you when you come into the office. To schedule an in-office consultation to discuss veneers or other cosmetic dentistry options, call Advance Family Dental Care at (630) 358-9899.

Tags: Cosmetic Bonding   Chips   Cracks  

A chipped or slightly cracked tooth can be healthy but oh, so unattractive. At Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi offers his patients many cosmetic dentistry services. A simple and budget-friendly one is composite resin bonding. It could solve your minor smile flaws in just one visit.

What is composite resin?

It's a tooth-colored compound--very like a putty--which your cosmetic dentist uses to repair small defects in your tooth enamel. Maybe you have:

  • A narrow gap between two teeth
  • Small chips and faint cracks on some front teeth
  • Dark stains from nicotine or coffee
  • Craze lines and pits
  • An oddly shaped or irregularly sized tooth because of hereditary factors

Whatever the minor flaw is, you want it gone. Fortunately, composite resin repairs do not require extensive enamel resurfacing, crowning, or any long, complicated treatment. A quick exam and X-ray can tell Dr. Zomorrodi if bonding is the way to go.

How composite resin bonding works

It's a mix of plastic and ceramic. To apply it, your dentist roughens the tooth surface and paints on a thin etching liquid. Then, your cosmetic dentist molds and sculpts the applied resin to the right shape and size. Dr. Zomorrodi's skill helps him affect a realistic repair. Then, he hardens the resin. That's the end of the procedure.

It takes just minutes per tooth. Often, bonding is the last step in a more extensive cosmetic dentistry plan. Also, dentists across the US use this versatile and durable material to repair tooth decay.

Advance Dental Care in Naperville offers an amazing range of aesthetic services, many of which are more complex than composite resin bonding. Your dentist will discuss your wishes before beginning any treatment.

Caring for your renewed tooth

You can use your tooth right away. However, as with all your teeth, treat it gently. Don't chew your fingernails or pencil. Avoid peanut brittle and candy apples. These things could chip your composite resin. Avoid smoking, and limit coffee and other things that could stain your repair and your natural enamel surfaces, too.

Also, brush and floss as usual. See Dr. Zomorrodi twice a year for a check-up and hygienic cleaning. Your composite resin bonding will last for years.

A healthy smile should look good, too

Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care provides patients with an array of services, one of which includes professional teeth whitening. Why? Simple. A great smile can leave a lasting impression! Dr. Zomorrodi and his staff know just that, which is why they remove stains off teeth at their Naperville, IL, dentist office.

More About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening turn back time and eliminate stains, dullness, and discolored teeth. Your Naperville, IL, dentist's technique offers impressive results. Dr. Zomorrodi uses a tooth-whitening agent that consists of powerful bleaching material to rejuvenate your smile. The bleaching material penetrates the tooth's enamel (white protective layer of the tooth) and makes teeth brighter. The reason enamel stains over time are because it absorbs brightly colored foods and beverages. Brushing with toothpaste and using mouthwash helps remove many of those stains, but a professional tooth whitening treatment is more powerful.

How Teeth Whitening Improves Your Smile

Believe it or not, professional whitening saves time and money. You save time going to the local drugstore to find teeth-whitening products. Plus, it may take several times using this product to get a result. Your Naperville, IL, dentist can make your teeth 3-8 shades brighter in about an hour with a professional teeth whitening.

Maintaining a proper dental care regimen helps professional teeth whitening last longer. It's not just about brushing and flossing to avoid decay and discoloration. You also need to limit sodas, coffee, tea, cherries, and other bright-colored foods. Avoid chewing tobacco and smoking to also help keep teeth white.

Teeth whitening boosts your self-confidence and self-esteem. Eliminating those stains makes smiling easy, and a great smile leaves a positive and long-lasting impression during a date or interview.
