Learn for yourself many dental terms, procedures, and effects of those procedures by reading these articles and watching these videos. Many dentists are really trying to help their patients, but neglect educating them on the items included in their treatment plans. We’re here to help you understand what these procedures involve and educate you on an alternative to some of the more unnecessary treatments.

cosmetic dentistry

Many people try and avoid going to the dentist for a variety of reasons. Fear, struggling to find a local office, and dental cost are all prime examples.

In accordance with the American Dental Association, in 2014, 52.3% of adults reported going to the dentist every 6 months. While 15.4% claimed to have visited once a year, only 11.0% visit once every 2-3 years. Shockingly 21.3% have not been to the dentist in over three years.

Dentist Salary in America

According to the United States Department of Labor, last year the annual median salary of a dentist was $156,240. About how much of that salary do you think is justified? Jobs are predicted to increase in the next few years by 19 %. Compared to the average of 7%, that surpasses expectation.

The average person’s salary is roughly $63,688; that is less than half of what a dentist brings home every year. Why is that?

Rise in Dental Cost

Rising dental costs keep many from the care they need

Routine check-ups are necessary to develop and maintain good oral hygiene. Check-ups are a common reason for visiting the dentist. Other circumstances like fillings, tooth extractions, crowns, root canals, and even gum disease are just as common.

Studies show that roughly 47.2% of adults over the age of 30 suffered from untreated gum disease. Usually obtaining dental insurance is quite simple and very cost-effective for the average person; but the problem is what will it cover?

Many insurances do cover routine care such as x-rays, check-ups, and etc. However, they only cover 50%-80% of the cost to perform fillings and major procedures. Because of this the prices within the industry vary from practice to practice, by doctor, or by opinion. The wide range of procedure costs give dentists leeway to charge extensive amounts at their own disclosure.

Botched Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is not recognized by the ADA or considered to be a specialty field. This gives recent graduates immediate access to work in the industry.

Roughly $35.2 billion is spent every year on cosmetic dentistry in the United States. Of that estimate, $10 billion accounts for redoing work previously done by another dentist. Another advantage for the dentist is to demand a more expensive dental cost on your services selling you on why you need this work redone. Emotional selling is what keeps dentists in business.

Flurosis Client Hates Dentist

Today I want to talk about fluoride but I also want to talk about the dentists that do videos that support fluoride.

Hey guys! Happy New Year’s, Merry Christmas all that other stuff is all done and gone. I wanted to have a rant today I figured everybody’s at work. What you’re gonna see on my desk is, I’ve got pages and pages front and back of a lot of stuff that I want to tell you about. I’m hoping that we’ll link it down below and that you’ll find some reason to look at it if it affects you.

Misconception of Fluoride

Guys I think it’s a grave mistake I think it’s one of the gravest of our time. I think fluoride is a poison and I think everyone should know where it comes from and how it’s made. I think if they did they’d pause on the effects that they let it have even in low dosage. My concern is that I hope that everyone takes what they know about fluoride and protects the smallest people around us. People under the age of 8.

I think it has negative effect. What I wanted you to know is I think any dentist that supports it should be able to say that he has a science degree,and that he’s actually used that science degree instead of just relying on old data. People see that a DDS degree means something and when a doctor says it’s safe for you, then you should be able to depend on that.

When a doctor tells you that it’s absolutely safe and communities that fluoridate the water have less cavities, then I would question that data and where it came from and when it was true and if it’s still real today. The reason being is because it’s not a dispute that’s been argued at a state level or city level. In major developed countries all over the world, they have proven against fluoridation of water because the negative effects.

What is Fluorosis?

Now let me tell you why I don’t like fluoride. There’s a disease called Fluorosis . Fluorosis comes from people who get too much access to fluoridation. It’s a fluoride poisoning and it shows up in the teeth. I’ve got a picture here there to show you what it looks like.

BAM!

This is what it looks like, it’s when you get spots, dots and pits all on your teeth and you don’t know why. People think you’re poor, you don’t brush your teeth , and they think that you just don’t practice good dental hygiene and it’s BS. I get cases like this every day. They’re so concerned with the cost of fixing it that they don’t even go to the dentist and find out what it is. When really the only thing they did wrong was do the same thing everybody else does, they just did it too much. I shouldn’t have to show you those pictures to sell you that fluorosis doesn’t exist if fluoride doesn’t exist. If it affected these people and if it’s one in a million, if you’re one of these people you don’t care what the percentages are.

Obviously if your teeth are strong, healthy, and nice you’d like to think that fluoride had something to do with it, but if it was just bought data then I think you need to know that as well. I see these cases.

In Need of a Christmas Miracle

This case came to me the other day at Christmas time, where a young lady that’s in her 20’s has a marriage, produced a baby moving a family forward in life and can’t smile came from the state of Kentucky. My problem with Kentucky is that it’s the number one fluoridated state in the country. I get an extraordinary amount of cases that come in like this from Kentucky, and it’s not something that happened yesterday or last year or 10 years from now. This happened 15 years ago because when those kids were six, ten years later they’re 16. Well add to that they’re 26, they’re making babies, moving forward in life, and the effects of brushing with fluoride has affected their teeth so bad that they can’t open their mouths in a social setting.

They take Christmas money, and instead of spending it on the spouse they ask mom to help them financially support a single arch veneer that may help them get their business started or get them going with a with job and career choices. So when I saw this case I saw it was for an upper only and I knew by looking at the case that this person needed top and bottom and guys I was so incredibly impressed when I actually got to call her on the phone and I realized one of the things that shocked me was is that no dentist had even taken the time to tell her what it is. She didn’t know what she was suffering from. We’re not dentists, so we just said let’s see what we can do. We will see what we can do to get it covered.

The Hypocrisy of the Dental Industry

Obviously the people that have Fluorosis, for the most part their teeth don’t hurt. It’s just that the enamel is not strong and it’s weathering and there’s different severity, but most of the people I talked to you say their teeth don’t hurt. They just wish they didn’t look so bad.

If you’re in an auto accident and you cut your finger or you cut your nose you can get plastic surgery because nobody wants a scar. But if you scar your teeth they think oh it’s just cosmetic, and if you want to fix that you have to pay that out-of-pocket. I know that Fluorosis for more than 10 years affected this lady so bad that I think her life would be incredibly different. I think the people that she loves would have benefited from all of her energies differently if something didn’t happen to her smile. It was something that didn’t happen to her by any fault of her own, she went with the best advice that was available to her. There’s dentists all over the state of Kentucky that could have easily made that information available.

When you talk to the 40% of teenagers that have some degree of Fluorosis that show up in their teeth, I promise you every one of those 40% would say I’ll do whatever I can to get rid of these spots on my teeth. And you hope that it’s just that small of a problem.

Profit Over Ethics

The other thing is I think that dentists who support fluoride need to be real careful in the fact that they’re not supporting a problem that they are going to profit from later. Because when you reject the people that don’t come in at 16, guess what when they’re 26, 36, and 46 those are problems that our profit centers for dentist. So you have to wonder are they motivated to prevent these problems and that’s my concern, that’s what bothers me.

My second thing is every dentist out there that wants to say they believe in fluoride needs to support their data, but besides their data they have to be clear about their conflict of interest. In other words if I’m a doctor that’s saying oh I see science all the time that says this stuff is safe and it helps remineralize teeth. Ask them every year that you’ve been in business how much do you profit every year from fluoride. If you were in business in 2000, what was your revenue for fluoride in 2000 and you forward that for five years or ten years. How much money do you make selling fluoride?

Question Your Dentist

The reason is it’s a profit center that they don’t have to sell to the client. What I want you to know it’s a true medicine, it’s a medication, and it is a treatment. Right now if I was to take any other medicine and pour it into the water system everybody would be concerned and say the water is contaminated. That’s whether it has any effect on it or not they wouldn’t want to assume it, even if it didn’t do anything but cure headaches. Somebody would say I don’t want my headache cured I want to make my own choices. I want to go to my doctor, I want to go to my pharmacy, and I want to get the appropriate amount of medicine that is made for my height, weight ,and body makeup.

You don’t get that argument when you get your fluoride from the tap water that you drink. It also assumes that everybody drinks the same amount of water and they brush their teeth with the same amount of time. The data supports that there’s a reduction in cavities and communities that have fluoridated water. Any doctor that wants to support that is relying on some science that is at the very least dated I think or incredibly convenient. I don’t think just the ADA is a reason to say I’m gonna take a poison, put it into my water or put it into my toothpaste. The reason being is because I think every one of my clients that come to me and ask me to help, would have asked their parents can you please be more sensitive about how you feel about fluoride.

Lasting Affects of Fluoride

Fluorosis would not exist if it wasn’t for fluoride, and these people would have dramatically different lives. I only see a small amount of cases, but this is a real case and the changes are profound and the choices would have been so much more appreciated if they could have just had these choices earlier. When you’re new , you’ve got a family, and you’ve coming up with these kind of situations you work around it and tell something happens. Generally that’s not going to happen in your 20s, probably won’t happen in new 30s, you’re lucky if you can afford it in your 40s ,and by the time you’re in your 50s you’re looking at different choices. All of which the dentists profit from guys.

I hope you enjoy the vlog this week and don’t forget to subscribe. I hope to bring you more videos that I think make a difference. It truly has an effect that will change you to some degree. I’ll see you next week let me know what you think about this video, and let me know what you think about fluoride.

Meet Torri

Torri, Bil Watson how are you doing?

Good, how are you?

I’m sitting here working on your case. I have it here in front of me and the case is a little more sensitive than I thought, I think you have a situation called Fluorosis but I’m not a doctor. It’s most likely called Fluorosis. Do you have a soft enamel on your teeth, the cover of your teeth feel soft?

Um, sometimes yeah.

Yeah I want to do some more things on this case than what I normally do if you don’t mind.

Okay.

First thing I need to do is, I want to give you some bleaching trays that we can put serum on your teeth that has some anti-microbials in it that should help clean these teeth. You wear them just like bleaching trays. Have you ever seen anybody wear bleaching trays before?

Yeah I’ve actually tried.

On this before picture how long ago was it taken?

Oh it was probably a year ago ,I’m not really sure.

I’m with you.

I could send you a more recent one. That was just I had a picture saved on my phone.

Ramping Up The Expectations

Yes, if you can send me a recent one it would help me a ton. Let me tell you what else I’m thinking about doing. I’m thinking about going ahead and trying to make you a bottom one at the same time and just don’t worry about paying for it. It looks like if your mom is doing it, and you got a brand-new baby it’s Christmas time l just don’t tell anybody okay.

I’m sorry I’m just so happy.

Well you just need this. You need this a lot, you need someone to be decent to you.

I appreciate you taking so much time.

Well we’re just going to get it perfect, it means the world to me it means. That new baby needs a mama that doesn’t mind taking her to play dates with big smiles. We’re going to take this case personally I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to build a couple different shades.

Thank you so much I really can’t tell you how much..

Well don’t thank me till we’re right, we still have a lot of work to do. This is a case I’m proud to do it’s a favor to me. Tell your family thank you the world, and get me some new pictures okay?

Thank you so much merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you too, thank you Goodbye.

The After Pictures

Hello?

Hey what are you doing Kiddo? Hey, yours look so good and you sent me pictures right away. I can’t tell you how impressed I am with the pictures you look unreal. Perfect! It looks like you just got your life back.

I’m seeing a lot of my friends from high school tonight and I’m so excited. My boyfriend saw them and he loves them, and he wants some now.

These pictures tell the truth. The second pair, you haven’t tried those on yet have you?

No I haven’t.

There the new translucent color. They’re a little bit softer and they reflect light. They are our most expensive veneer that we have ,so let’s try those on now and then you gotta send me pictures. They’re thinner! It’s a sleeve, they’re more flexible too. The way they’re made is when you push them up they get tighter at the top.

Yeah I can tell they are tight.

And you should love the color.

Wow that’s amazing, oh yeah these fit amazing.

Oh my God.

I’m so excited to wear these and show these to people. Thank you so much you guys did so good thank you.

You don’t know how nervous I was. Could you tell how nervous I was ?

Yeah I had a feeling.

You kind of needed this to be perfect for you.

Yeah and y’all made it perfect thank you so much!

I knew that if I just sent out the tops like you ordered, it would only be like going to a party half dressed.

You’re exactly right, I thought the same thing as soon as I put them in. I’m so glad you sent me the bottom ones.

How A Smile Changed Her Life

Are you okay?

Yeah sorry I’m just emotional. I’ve been debating on going back to school, and I told my mom a few minutes ago after I put them in I’m so ready to do this now.

You can do anything now kid. I’m looking at these pictures that you just sent me, and that little girl can do anything.

I wish I could hug you right now.

The Reason We Are In Business

The fact that you sent me these pictures, I like the one with the tongue out that’s the best tongue picture I’ve got all year. I can’t tell you how excited I am. I know these are gonna be the best pictures of your life. When I saw your pictures it was no longer about what we do for a living anymore it’s just what we do. It wasn’t about money for me, it was about giving her what she needed, and the tools that she needed to be a mom. The pictures that you sent me are amazing! They are from a really happy person.

Thank you!

To think that I had anything to do with that, I don’t know how dentists literally have the know-how to help somebody and don’t. When I saw this there was just no way I was just going to make the tops without making the bottoms.

I feel like I can do so much more now, like I’m not holding myself back.

I am so glad that you sent me the pictures in advance. When I see pictures I could make a lot of things happen. If you hadn’t sent me those pictures, I wouldn’t have known what I was building. Even though I tried to get them out by Christmas, I got them out as fast as I could. But when you gave me the time to be me, I knew that I had a smile that needed to be built. When can you send me some pictures of the new smile? If I have any more questions I’ll call you back. But tell me it’s a great way to end the old year and start the new year.

Exactly it’s amazing thank you so much!

Gratitude Through Social Media

Thanks to you all I’ve been so busy this week. I accepted a business opportunity, visited the school I’ll be attending, and made new friends along the way in less than a week. That’s what you helped me accomplish by giving me my smile back. I can’t thank you enough for changing my life.

3 Smile Makeovers in Cosmetic Dentist Parking Lot

Cosmetic Dentist Misguiding the Public

A consumer cannot and I repeat cannot take their own impression accurately. Brighter Image Lab and Instasmile create these cosmetic over-the-counter internet appliances where no one ever sees a dentist, and I promise you you cannot eat with them. As you know I do snap on smile which really is the only one that really fits right so there’s no way you can do “Do it Yourself” impressions, it’s just not going to happen. But it is buyer beware, and you should not get this type of appliance it doesn’t work. It’s not the same material and it’s not going to last. You can’t eat with it and the internet appliances I just cannot tell you enough, it’s just a waste of money.

Taking Impressions with Ease

You being here today means a lot to me.

It means a lot to me to for you to be here.

It meant so much to me because obviously everybody has their family on holidays. What meant the world to me was is you can’t let people be misguided, it keeps people poor. I’m telling you anything I’d invite you to you’re going have ten times more confidence with a full smile, and you shouldn’t have to leave half of you at home. If it would have been double you couldn’t have done it. They say oh buyer beware buyer beware saying don’t don’t stop stop, it takes years to take an impression. It’s insane!

If three people couldn’t go forward ,you got Easter pictures coming, you have your family , and you got church I’m sure. They will scare you, scare your daughter, scare your friends, and your neighbors.

I got one question did you guys have any problems taking your own impression? Was the impression hard? Did you have a hard time?

No I had to re-do mine.

But you got it.

Yeah I did it the second time.

It wasn’t worth three or four thousand more dollars because the people buy from us it’s not a pleasure buy. They have to buy it, it’s a painkiller it’s just something that means the world to me.

Makeover in Under 30 Minutes

What I am going to do is start one at a time, so I’m going to start with you. There you go, let’s do this!

Oh my gosh! T

There you go, let’s try the top first let me see, it’s got a little bit of lipstick. They are amazing you know they are. You’re going to be okay thank you so much!

Thank you!

You know they’ll fit better once you’ve had them in for a while.

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, wow!

Now look at that, you’ve got to look!

Oh my God I have teeth! Oh my God thank you.

Here’s what’s going to happen it’s going to take you a while to adjust your bite but when you do you’ll feel so much better. These are a big deal for me. I see one little micro fraction, just a little bitty things that might be able to improve they look amazing. What do you think it’ll do?

I gotta keep my hand down now.

You have to learn to smile .You make me so proud that I do what I do.

I feel normal again.

How long has it been?

About 5 years..

Five years since you’ve smiled.

I’ve learned to cover my mouth when I smile.

You look beautiful I wish you could see what we see. It takes about three days to get used to the bite. I don’t know you and it looks like I wouldn’t know. They look natural. Nobody would know. You look great!

Thank you for giving me my life back oh thank you!

Thank you, can you sit here for a minute? Are you in a hurry?

No not at all.

Cosmetic Dentist Proven Wrong

Have a seat. Let’s try you man.

It’ll take a little getting used to.

They are so much more sophisticated. Let’s try the bottoms we did some adjustments to the bottoms. It’s going to take some getting used to. Too much?

I don’t know yet, it took me about a week to get used to them.

They look natural.

Do they?

They look good my friend,you can’t even tell. So you had them before?

For a few months and then they broke.

They broke and we had a warranty for them. I think same thing for you right? You always know that there’s always a possibility they don’t fit, because we do at an arms-length transaction. The results are so much better considering the people I work with would never be taken from a cosmetic dentist’s office ,and they weren’t going to a dentist’s office.

Client Number Three

Thank you more than you know you drove a long way. I’m going to let you try these on. Oh my gosh! Well let me ask, you only bought your bottoms because that’s all you could afford?

That’s right.

I’m gonna do your bottoms for free.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Bil!

Call me Monday, we’re going to get your impressions. You know how to take an impression?

Yeah I did it myself.

It’s not rocket science?

Yeah ,yeah it’s very easy I did it myself.

I want you to see how beautiful this is. You trained yourself not to put smile big and you want to smile big right.

Do It Yourself Impressions are Possible Without a Cosmetic Dentist

Don’t let someone tell you that you can’t take your own impression.

I was kind of scared to do mine. When I received it and I let it sit on the counter for about five days. I kept looking at it because I didn’t want to mess it up and my husband said you know what just do it, just take it out and do it.

It was the only option you had. Your teeth were really destructed and you didn’t have a choice.

Insurance couldn’t fix it. I couldn’t afford implants or anything.

She sells insurance and she wouldn’t say do it. I know she’s got insurance.

You still have to pay more out of pocket.

How long did you research us?

I have been thinking about it for about a couple of years before I decided, and made a decision in at least a couple weeks.

At least a couple weeks what about you?

Other Payments Options

At first I went to my dentist and he said $10,000 I was like oh I’m about to pass out. Then with my credit score being so low, I couldn’t apply for the credit card.

We financed you?

Yeah you did.

The doctor told you ten grand,he didn’t say hey there’s this other affordable alternative that I can tell you about.

No I had to do my own research.

The dentist I saw I was closer to like twenty.

They told me that I had to take out teeth I had to get implants,there was no hope for me I had to just wipe them out and get dentures.

I promise you the two people here have already seen you be a different person you never relaxed that much with your smile.

No,it’s been a long time.

Even with dental insurance, I’m an insurance agent and I sell dental insurance.

So you see people every day?

Yeah.

A Smile A Cosmetic Dentist Can’t Give You

You paid thousands and those dentists couldn’t have given you a better, and you wouldn’t go back to them today if they did it for free.

No.

It won’t even matter whether you can eat in it,you will never take it out. You won’t take yours out.

Exactly! I won’t take it out never ever.

You have to clean it.

Zack is your bottom feeling better already?

It is actually yeah it takes a few minutes. I don’t feel like I’m talking awkwardly.

That just looks so much better,I don’t mean its bad. It just brings you up and you know you take these right to family people are going to see you this evening. What would you’ve done otherwise? You just wait I though.

Yeah,you know my little temporary.

Let me tell you, you with this bright white smile makes you stand out. I’m not saying it you know you’re beautiful with that smile, you got family, probably boys right?

I got 3 boys.

Three boys and they got a bunch of stuff they want first.

Yeah, well I have my oldest son he just graduated and his prom is on Saturday.

You’re going to be taking prom pictures?

Sure,yeah.

You won’t have a problem taking another impression for me? I can send it to you, you take the impression, and we build the bottom. I’m gonna look at yours the best I can,with every picture I can,and I promise you you’re gonna love the bottoms. Thank you so much. Guys I think we did good today thank you.

It was worth it,I would do it all over again.

Guys we’re going to wrap it up and we’re gonna take one group picture.

Expensive Cosmetic Dentistry

No need for a dentist to fix teeth gaps or missing teeth. Brighter Image Lab has highly advanced technology help any client smile big with confidence.

Results of Expensive Dentistry

I was on Facebook looking through things on there and I saw a little infomercial. Something like that would be amazing to somebody like me for sure. I have no bad teeth. Two of my teeth never came in, so that’s where the spaces come from. I actually still have baby teeth so it’s been like that all my life, or for as long as I can remember. Going to a dentist is ridiculous nowadays. You can’t, most people cannot afford to go it’s absolutely absurd how much it costs. They said that I’d have to get braces or do the porcelain caps. Which is never going to happen. I mean I’m poor, and I can’t afford all that mess.

I was looking through pictures, and there’s none except maybe one when I was not aware of my teeth. There’s not a single picture of me showing my teeth except one with my mama and that’s it. All these years, it’s crazy how something can affect you.

There’s just no words what this means to me. That’s why if I hadn’t have gotten this, I’d have been happy for whomever did. Because I know what it means to me so I can only imagine what it means somebody else too. Today’s a pretty good day.

The Anticipation Comes To An End

Wendy? Bil Watson, I wanted to tell people your smile is not a luxury. When people invest in themselves it helps them be a better person. I know that your story meant a lot to me, and it takes a little bit of getting adjusted to them.

I’m willing to try.

You know without a doubt that if we try these on there’s always a chance that they don’t work. But we’re going to try and see what we’ve got.

I’m shaking.

Don’t drop it, then I’ll show you. So you’ve never seen your own smile? That’s crazy! Take your time and look at them.

Let’s see oh my gosh!

Stunned By A Smile

Do you see them? You look amazing!

Wow! It doesn’t even look like me.

You’re going to have to practice smiling.

I’ve never smiled with my mouth open.

See how weird it is? For the first time please try to smile big.

No problem. Wow! Oh my gosh!

You have never smiled?

No.

38 years and you have never smiled?

I’m trying really hard not to mess up my makeup up guys, come on.

Let me ask you this, your boys have never seen you smile?

No.

You’ve always hid your smile? Are you crazy?

It’s crazy, I can’t believe this!

You have to smile big though.

That’s not really hard for me to do right now, because I actually can.

Learning To Smile Big

I don’t believe this. Give me a hug. We’re doing it that’s what you wanted right?

Oh my gosh more than anything in the world. I won the lottery right here. It’s great! I cannot get over this, I cannot believe it.

You would have done it years ago, but when you see yourself with this smile you see yourself smiling then you want to show your smile.

No I can’t believe that’s me, and you’re not going to make me cry.

Who’s going to be the first one to see you?

My son.

To spend 38 years hiding and then can you see yourself ?

Yeah I’m not hiding anymore, it’s great I can’t thank you guys enough.

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

I think you’re going to see yourself doing a lot of different things but you needed it. If we didn’t make this happen it probably wasn’t going to happen. You would’ve just kept going, but every day you would wonder what would happen if I had that kind of smile. I would do more, have more energy, I’d be more outgoing, and I hate to see people sit back and go well things are just tough. It’s never me, it’s never my turn, and today it’s your turn.

Finally my turn…Finally something good, well really great I love them actually. I cannot believe I look like this.

I want you to look again.

That is crazy that is just awesome, now I just need a date and I’ll be good.

The Risk To Smile Big Is Worth The Wait

A year from now people won’t know you as the lady that has gap teeth. But with the gap teeth I wanted to let people know that we could do the work. It’s always sensitive and I think you know I was concerned that maybe they wouldn’t fit or they wouldn’t look right. Because we had to fill in places that were separate than teeth but when I started doing the design I’m thinking this is going to work and I felt confident enough to come all the way because you’ve never tried them on before,

No and I just love you for feeling confident to try that.

Well I appreciate you for being brave enough to do this video. I hope you can see where it’ll help some people.

There’s no words.

Perfect Smile Makeover without Invisalign or Cosmetic Dentist!

What Do You Expect From Cosmetic Veneers?

What do I think is gonna happen? Hopefully I’m gonna get a pretty new smile. I’m really excited about that because I I feel like I haven’t had one since I was a little girl. Like a whole new person I hope I do I think I’ll feel just one hundred times prettier.

Meet Christina Guerra: Beauty Makeover Guru

Hey guys! This week we wanted to do another vlog and I think that’s worth doing I actually got contacted by a young lady out of Dallas, she’s a YouTuber and she has her own blog and she has a pretty strong following from the people that care about the things that she cares about. I think it’s makeup, it’s fashion, it’s trends , it’s all the necessities of life.

She contacted me and said we have a common cause we both like to see young women find advantages that will help them through life. When I saw that and saw that about her blog and we wanted to make it one of the first collaborations that we actually do with another channel.

We’re going to go over some of the people that I think that would be interested in her channel that we normally do new life smiles for. Then let her select who she thinks she can work with that appeals to her audience ,and then with that we’re gonna build that young lady a new smile. We hope that it makes a difference, and we hope that this blog shows you a little bit about what we try to do all the time.

I think the world of you for reaching out to us. If you can tell us a little bit about why you found us.

A Makeover Can Give Confidence

Because of society, girls we have so much pressure to look a certain way and I know I have my own insecurities that I struggle with. I really want to be able to help someone out that has been trying to change their smile for a while, because I know how much of a difference a smile can really make.

You want to feel that security in yourself you know, I want to be a part of that in helping someone else.

Choosing Smile Makeover

Cool. We’ve got smile makeover submissions from all sorts of backgrounds.

Are they from all over Texas?

All over the world.

How about this one? She’s from Amarillo Texas. Her name is Christina, she’s a nursing student and she’s about to graduate. It says here that she has some yellowing in her teeth, she thinks her teeth are really small, and that there’s gaps in between. She’s insecure whenever she talks to her patients because she is in nursing.

Her teeth they’re small and they’re gapped out and we do really good with gap teeth and chipped teeth. My biggest concern is can we help her, yes I think we can. If that’s someone that you would like to fix and I think we can make that happen.

Meeting Christina

Hey Cristina Bil Watson, it’s a pleasure what are you doing? Have a seat. Thank you ,I’m hoping that today goes well for you. How long ago did you actually apply to be a new life smile client?

I think I applied for a smile makeover twice actually. Yeah I think it was back in the end of November, when I decided let me just submit a smile story what could hurt right? Then I tried again in January or so.

So the first time was over a year ago? It takes a long time yeah. We don’t like to make it where somebody won a smile. Between me and you, I think that living with the smile that you’re not happy with is a little bit of pain.

Yeah.

So to go,” Who can win” I think that’s crazy. That’s like seeing three people with a flat tire and go “Who could win a free tire”, it’s like all those people want to get home, want to get to the families, and all of them want to get back to their lives.

So I’m going to be a registered nurse and as a student now it’s kind of dumb, because I shouldn’t feel this way but I do. I go into my patients’ room and I’m embarrassed because I feel like immediately they’re just looking at my mouth and it makes me feel kind of bad about myself. But when I get to put on a mask I feel better.

When you went to the dentist, what did they want to do braces or anything ?

There they told me I would need Invisalign , and the front four veneers porcelain. They would cut the frenulum or that little piece right there because if not that would make my gap come back he said.

How Did You Find Us?

How’d you find us?

Honestly I don’t know if I remember. I’ve been following you for a long time now ,and I don’t even know how long it’s been.

What do you do? Do you follow our channel on YouTube?

Mhm and on Instagram.

Let The Makeover Begin

Yeah we’re gonna have some fun you’re gonna do what you do today and you’re gonna meet a little girl that I think’s over the top fun, and with that I hope it’s exciting and it’s neat. I hope we get to finish it off with a smile that you wanted ,and I hope that you forget the fact that you used to not smile. I’ll see you through the rest of the day and thank you for talking to me. I’ll see you soon. Let’s just hope for the best okay.

What are you guys doing? I’ve got my gloves and got my stuff. You look amazing !

Thank you!

You look so much happier than you were yesterday. I hope you had a good day.

I did, at first I thought I was going to be awkward because we’re strangers you know, but she made it like I’ve known her. It felt like she was just my friend from a long time.

I couldn’t be more impressed with what you do. I think you must be putting a lot of work into your channel.

Yeah it’s paid off.

Yes I can tell that it’s real high energy like every thing you do is a lot to do. I really can’t say enough about what I think you do for enough people. More people should see this kid so I think you’re going have fun with the things that are in front of you. A lot of girls will put makeup on and a lot of girls will put on some new clothes, and stuff but they end up having this thing.

Adjusting to Your New Smile Makeover

Today, one of the things I think would help us a lot to change your profile is for us to do your bottom teeth. Everybody that we know that has a nice smile somebody helped them get that smile.

If you didn’t have it and you’re starting life then you’re you’re at this kind of this disadvantage. You always know that there’s a chance that what we do doesn’t fit, I always tell people that. You haven’t tried these on. so with this ,I say we just get started. It’s going to feel a little weird at first and then we are just going to try them in. I Hope they work if not, we’ll see.

They don’t look thick at all.

At the top they don’t look like a contact lens they should match up real. Here you go?

It goes this way. That’s exactly how you do it. You’ve got to practice smiling, pretend that you had a nice smile forever and this the only way anyone’s is going to get out of here is if you smile. Let’s see what we do? You look grown up. You got big in one second.

Wow! Oh my gosh! They look really good!

You ready?

Yeah Wow! That doesn’t look like me. I need the bottoms.

You have never showed any of your teeth?

No.

But now what happens is most people will just show their top teeth, let’s look at it again. Just look at that.

I know it’s really pretty!

You having a hard time smiling?

I’m just not used to it.

A New Life After Your Smile Makeover

It’s generally the hardest thing that we do. You’ve had a lot of years. Anyone who meets and greets with you they’re going to think I’ve got to see it though. It’s hard I always try to tell people and I hope that your audience sees this because it’s young. A young group that’s getting started.

It’s not a luxury if your smile is holding you back, it’s not a luxury. There’s just some things that a young lady has to have I think there has to be choices. What I see a lot with people who get these for the first time is, they’re very difficult to learn to smile but we’re gonna take you impressions and we’re going to do your bottom ones. They’re going to take some more pictures. What do you think it’ll do for you?

It’s a life changer.

You think so? Tell me.

For one, I feel like I’m not going to have to put on a mask to talk to my patients anymore.

I do think that the people you know need to see the other side of you. And I think we had a conversation yesterday that talked about your energy and your passion and where you’re from and what you wanted to do. I could tell that first time talking to you that’s not smiling is not the person that’s inside of you.

Giselle’s Remarks

I can’t thank you enough for getting us involved.

Thank you.

All your work is what got us here today.

Yeah I think we’re going to wrap it up. Anything you want to say?

I had a lot of fun with Cristina. We went shopping, she got her hair done ,she got like a whole transformation makeover, and I honestly do see her really happy right now. I see it in your eyes, I’m an eye person and I can tell by people’s eye. It was really nice meeting you and we had a lot of fun.

Finding Giselle

How do they find your channel?

So you can search me on YouTube. Just search my name just “Giselle Guerra” or “Taking on Giselle”. I’m also an Instagram up there, it’s “Taking on Giselle”.

I didn’t know you did Instagram too. You got it all going on okay, thank you again guys.

Today we got to do what we always say we want to do which is that we got to do the tough ones. I can’t wait to get your bottoms and somebody will give us the feedback to see pictures on those. Thank you so much!

Tooth Contouring and Dental Veneer Financing

What is Tooth Contouring?

Enameloplasty, also know as tooth contouring is a simple procedure utilized by various dentists across the world. This short and efficient procedure is used to gently remove minuscule amounts of enamel to reshape and change the length of your existing teeth.

Meet Reggie

I think me and you would tell them man just let them finance you. What I’m hoping is that this will be a chance for you to be an example to people. Figure out a way to use some of that money, so this can literally change your life.

I could never imagine that Brighter Image Lab would be calling my phone to go through this process to get the smile that I want. I was very nervous to be at another dentist office after I swore them off for life. I think without the tooth contouring process, my veneers wouldn’t have had the same effect that I was looking for initially when I was decided to get veneers.

As far as the financing is concerned it’s just a great option to have. I just feel like Brighter Image Lab really thought about everything, but especially they thought about the little guy. I’m just ready to get back to to the Reggie that was smiling at everyone he comes in contact with when he was 18. That’s what I’m looking forward to getting back to.

We’ve never met each other, Bil Watson.

Mr. Bil, it’s so nice to finally meet you sir.

I’ve seen you on our last interview where they took you to the dentist. Thank you more than you know for letting us do .

Thank you!

Thank you works both ways.

Absolutely sir, it does.

I think you went online and you financed with us.

Mhm mhm

A Problematic Need for Tooth Contouring

We had a tooth that was long. How long did you have it, for your whole life?

Um no, actually I played baseball in high school and got hit in the face with a baseball. I just started noticing growing.

We went ahead and designed the job and did it, and I looked at it for a few days. Then I said bring me that case back,and asked do you think we could call this client and see if he would be willing to work with us. One of the things I wanted to do a blog with you about is you’re in Texas, you’re here in Dallas, Texas. If you get down to Biloxi, Mississippi, Shreveport, Louisiana, or Clovis New Mexico, all these places think it’s just so expensive to have one tooth taken down that they don’t do it. I’m guessing the fear that you had was that it was going to cost too much to fix. If you would have known you could have gotten that done for 80 bucks, 100 bucks, or 200 bucks I get the feeling you would have done it a longtime ago.

A Fear of The Dentist

Probably not though, I had a fear of dentists since I was 6 years old. I went to a dentist office and I swore dentists off for the rest of my life after that experience when I was 6.

That wasn’t what this VLOG is about, but I want to talk about it if you don’t mind .

Sure, absolutely!

I can’t tell you how many people, I need to calm down I’m so animated about dentists, I know that industry. That model is broken please if you’re a dentist listening, they have to become more approachable. The people think that the fear of dentists is like a phobia that’s not natural like it doesn’t come from a real result. It comes from somewhere.

For me, it was traumatic. It wasn’t even so much as fear, it was trauma.

Reggie I always tell people, so many of our clients won’t go to a dentist unless it’s pain or trauma. It’s a tough conversation to sit there man-to-man two men talking to go oh I’ve followed battleship, but I will not go to the dentists.

Absolutely right, absolutely yeah.

Send Us Your Photos

Back to what we were talking about, my story with that. As I kept looking at this case here’s what I heard a little bit about you that I didn’t know. You you were just a case to me, and you sent me pictures. Pictures mean the world to me I’ll tell anybody who’s listening right now anybody who ever thinks about buying a veneer from me, please send me pictures.

Absolutely.

Let me tell you why, I think I have it right here. Just that picture alone tells me this is a guy that cares about the world. He cares about who he can help . I knew that if I could just take this right here, that would be a game-change.

Game-Changer. Yes Game-Changer Bil. Game-Changer.

So you look at it, well you look at that right there and then you don’t do it. It’s a big deal.

It’s amazing!

Tooth Contouring Process Revealed

So getting Dr. Williams to come in and complete the tooth contouring, and then the fact that she moved some of it. Well how long did it take her do it?

Oh, about two to three minutes.

And did it hurt?

Absolutely not!

Did you have to get shots?

No it didn’t have to have anything at all.

Dentists And Patient Sensitivity

You know how many more doctors across the country would see clients if they could just go, hey man let me do that for you. They spend thousands of dollars getting people in their door when people would line up if they just go hey we’re not trying to judge you today, but if you’ve got this tip right here you want taken off we can move that. If they did more of that then guess what…you haven’t been to a dentist in 20 years…

That was thirty years.

Thirty years and now you’ve been twice to look just because she’s shook your hand.

Just because she treated me as if she was sensitive to what I’ve been through previously,

Do You think you’ll ever forget her name?

I will never forget her name.

But it shouldn’t have taken a guy on the internet to tell you that.

But thank God it did.

Why Tooth Contouring is Needed

So with that I saw that I could get you a great smile. I’m going to see if I’ve got your models on here at all. So when you see it on a model, well it looks really bad on when you look at it that way, and the fact is you can see how it’s socially acceptable in color.

Absolutely.

But I’m like if we really want to help this guy I don’t need to extend these teeth down to make that look better. Because then he’s going to be like wow are those regular and you probably could have pulled it off but you would always be doing like a half smile. Now you get to live your life.

For myself I would favor the left side of my mouth. Having this bad tooth literally changed the way my brain thought.

You’ve had to feel differently with that tooth gone.

Tooth Contouring Was The First Step To A New Life

My life has already changed during this process. The process has been so rewarding for me but just the knowledge that I’ve gained. The dentist that you guys work with is exceptional. The confidence is just something that you really can’t perceive the importance of until that confidence level has changed.

I want to talk about one more thing before we put these in. When you came to us I don’t know if people know it but you’re actually a real client. We didn’t call you, you came online. You actually chose financing.

That’s right!

Was it hard?

Financing Your Dental Veneer

It was so easy. 24 hours I paid an initial down payment very cheap just $149. Payments are so low. Twenty-five dollars a week you don’t even think about it. I burned through that at jack-in-the-box.

I think if me and you were talking at the gym you would say you really need to let those people know they could get financed.

Absolutely.

We’re getting out of where we can help people who really want a nice smile at the highest level, but I also want to be someone who says anyone who needs it. The last thing I would hate to meet you at the gym and say you went for 3, 4, or 5 more years without knowing what you feel like in a best smile. You know in five years you’ll be 40 or something, so let’s see if these work.

I appreciate it.

The Simplicity Of Dental Veneers

Let’s just start and I’m going to give you both of them at the same time. Let’s do this one first.

Okay, so this is that top I’m presuming?

Yes sir.Okay let me see what you got.

They look wonderful!

Yeah, you’re just seeing the reflection. Oh wow!

Now let’s look at both of them together.

They’re so easy to put in.

Let me see. Can you close them all the way?

Mhm.

I’m trying to think what doctor Williams is going to say to me. How do they feel ?

Wow! I mean they are gorgeous and and they’re very easy to put in I was concerned before getting them how they will stay in but they’re secure. They’re not slipping, no play, and they look wonderful. They look amazing!

Product Quality

You never tried them in before today?

No, God no!

It makes you want to do different things. If you don’t mind I’m going to hold the mirror for you for a second. So I’m going to try to get you to see the mirror.

I just can’t believe it, they look perfect!

It’s just a regular smile, it looks perfect and I can’t see where anyone would think there anything other than dental veneers. It’s got to be a big change. I would hate to think that we had to design that with a longer tooth, that 75 or 80 dollars took to fix around just a little bit of fear. What I like about this vlog is it shows people they can go to the dentist, have a little bit of stuff done, and still get these until they can decide what they want done. So it merged two paths.

I appreciate it!

Final Remarks

So I think we’re going to wrap it up. A couple things..

Sure.

They don’t have to be afraid of the debt. Your smile is not a luxury. I think you believe that because I think you’ll see it as a tool that’ll make people want to be more like you. The other thing is they don’t have to be afraid of financing, which makes 80% of people say no. Then they can shop around until somebody will agree to tooth contouring. I get this feeling that you’re going to take this real GQ image and people will see it real quick. I think your friends will benefit from it in one day. Your mom will see a happier you. It’ll make them feel like you’re doing the things that you’re supposed to be doing in life. You did good.

Thank you sir.

Let’s say goodbye. Thank you guys so much more than you know, and we’ll pick it up next week.

Tetracycline Teeth Stains

See how a young woman effected by Tetracycline as a child spent over 15 years with permanent teeth stains. These teeth stains were impossible to get rid of. No amount of whitening or laser treatment could rid her of them.

Meet Brittney

From 9 to 19 was 10 years. From 19 to 29 it was 20 years, you suffered a bad smile with teeth stains for 20 freaking years that you fixed in two seconds. Literally in two minutes we were done that’s crazy.

I’ve had teeth stains since I was 9 years old.They said that I had to take some antibiotic as a child that permanently created teeth stains. They can’t get rid of it. They said even if I whiten them, they’d still be stained forever. I didn’t think they could affect your teeth that much, especially when you’re little. I’m 29 now so I’m about to graduate college. I don’t want to go into the medical field with braces working on pediatrics because then I’ll look like a child too. Anyway if I get braces and straighten my teeth they’re still going to be stained.

A Life Destroyed By A Bad Smile

I mean I don’t have one picture where I’ve smiled. I learned how to not smile so much that I’m just so used to it. I smiled for real to my daughter once, and she said mom why are your teeth dirty. I tried to explain it to her, but she didn’t get it. She was like well mine aren’t like that and I was like okay. I want to do it for them and for me because I’ve never been happy with my smile. So everyone I see, it affects how they look at me. They probably think, oh she’s not clean or she doesn’t brush her teeth there’s stuff like that. I’ll be seeing children every day I don’t want them to say the same thing my daughter says.

I want them to be like Oh mom she has a good smile. I want mine to look like hers you know.
My boyfriend is my older daughter’s basically step-father. Her dad actually left me because of my teeth. That was one of his things. Everyone has their thing you know. He wanted a girl with perfect teeth because he has perfect teeth. So I just said, I don’t know what you want me to do.

Obstacles Of A Bad Smile

How long before you get married?

Three years, because we have to save.

I hear that a lot but I don’t ever get into a lot of conversations. People will postpone their wedding just for the pictures.

Yeah.

Because you want to have a nice smile for your wedding right?

His parents work for Kodak so they always want to take pictures and they always ask me why I don’t smile. It changes your personality. So you bought the top ones because that would
get you something. You probably didn’t buy the bottom ones because they’re
expensive.

Right!

We’re going to get you the bottom. Let me tell you why, let me see you smile big. I don’t want to do 50% on your confidence.

You can see the staining right?

A Step Forward To A Better Life

Oh I can see it. It’s all been done through medication? Ouch! I can tell you with everything I know, these should be incredibly bright. It’s going take you a few seconds to get used to this. You probably should have a shock, but I’m looking at it and it looks like everything’s going to match up. So let’s go ahead and try it.

Oh my god, this is so weird.

But do you see how perfect that’s going to look. If your teeth were just a little bit yellow then we would just bleach them. You know I’m telling you truth. I’m almost at the point to where we need to get her to come back. We could make them Monday, like why even take those…

How can you make them that quickly? Don’t they take longer?

They do take a long time , but I have magic elves in the back. But I will tell you from what I’ve seen it’s going to be out of the park taking pictures.

Oh yeah, those look great!

You’re going to have a hard time not smiling. I think we can wrap it up for today.But we’re
going to schedule for you come back okay? We did it!


What are you doing kiddo? Are you ready for this? A little bit about the story that we’re doing last week I met Brittney for the first time we had never met right?

No.

Personal Relationships Impacted By Teeth Stains

When I did her job we put in the top and I instantly said this girl doesn’t know herself. Like you don’t know how pretty you are. You were blocked up, not a lot of eye contact, and I said if you’ll trust me and give me a week maybe I can show everybody what they should see. And I think the whole world needs to see that your smile is not a luxury. Somebody told me at one time the staining of your teeth was a complication in your last marriage.

We were going to get married and he said I can’t be with someone with teeth like that because he had perfect teeth. He said I tried to, but just I looked at them every day and I couldn’t.

It’s insane and it makes you want to compensate. Everybody has some of those issues but what happens is is confidence is something that you don’t ever value until you don’t have it. I think if there was anything that what we do does for people is tell them that it’s okay for you to stand here in your own skin and be you. But to stay on this blog I wanted to show the world that no amount of bleaching would fix your teeth, no laser whitening nothing, there was nothing you can do or you would’ve done it. So even if you were to straighten them, you’d still had a problem.

Yeah.

Eliminating Teeth Stains

They wouldn’t have been contoured and stuff so I wanted to make your bottom, and I think it’s a big deal so you ready to see them? These are the top. Try those again.

Are they in all the way? Oh my god that’s crazy.

Are you ready to try these in?

Yeah because the bottoms look so bad now.

These are going to be a little tighter. They’re going to be a little weird for a
minute once you get adjusted to them. They look amazing!

It looks so good!

They look so surreal no one would ever know that you aren’t a cosmetic dentist.

Life After Tetracycline Teeth Stains

I don’t know how to smile.

You’ve got to try. Do me a favor? You hadn’t done that at all ? You hadn’t done that smile at all, like you didn’t go just that little bit of smile even your daughters don’t see.

Nobody sees, so it probably looks so weird.

We didn’t do that much we did a little bit of makeup, we got your color ,pulled your hair back and gave you some confidence you’re not hiding. I hope you can see this girl needs to show the whole world.

Oh yeah.

Is that hard?

I’m not used to it.

You have natural dimples and you don’t know how to show them. You understand that if the whole world saw that, all these times everyone you know would see somebody different they would know a different person that’s not the girl that walked in here last week.

People will treat me different too.

The Quick And Simple Process

The people treat you like they see you yeah but you look amazing. If you can, what they’re going to want to ask you is a bunch of questions. Was the impression hard?

No.

How many times did you have to do them?

One time.

No big deal were the instructions hard?

No.

Then they’re going to ask you, do they fit too tight?

No.

Feel too bulky ?

No.

Do you any reason why they feel like they’re going to fall out?

No definitely not!

So in a social setting, you can survive it?

Oh yeah no problem.

Psychological Aftermath Of Teeth Stains

The only thing I know is you still..

I still don’t know how to smile, yeah.

The only that’s going through my mind right now is your little girls are going to be screaming
freaking happy when they see mom happy. So your little girls have never seen you smile?

No.

You have just been this happy person that’s been more serious. Well now you
get to be less serious.

I couldn’t be more exactly with the results I think,do you like them?

I love them!

Daily Routine Will Change

I think you kind of knew from last week that they were gonna be pretty good. When you’re 29 it’s hard to believe you’ve anything for 20 years. The longest thing that you’ve done in your
life is have to deal around a smile. We fixed it! I want you to see what nobody’s used to seeing you be you. I’m seeing it for the first time. We are going to get our picture taken and then you’re going to practice smiling.

Okay.

By this time next week yours need to be mad at each other.

Yeah, they will.

6 Causes of Brown Spots on Teeth

What Happened To Your Teeth? 6 Causes of Brown Spots on Teeth

There is a lot to be said about smiling…

Smiling is contagious and one of the best all natural medicines out there!

Did you know that just by smiling, you can reduce stress, enhance your immune system, and give your heart a healthy boost?  

It’s TRUE!

That’s a whole lot to smile and be happy about…

However, if you have unsightly brown spots on your teeth, it can definitely hold you back from proudly showing and sharing your smile.

So, what causes these mark? You’re about to find out!

Better yet, you’ll also learn how you can instantly transform your teeth to get a white and shining smile!

6 Causes of Brown Spots on Teeth

What Causes Brown Spots on Teeth?

These spots can range in color from yellowish brown all the way to a deep black-brown color and appear in a variety of ways. Some people notice blotchy and irregular spots and patches, while other people’s brown markings look like discolored lines.

There are several causes of brown spots on teeth:

  1. Food and Drinks: Dark colored foods contain a chemical called chromogens that is known for staining tooth enamel. Food containing artificial dyes and colors also have the power to leave stains on teeth.
  2. Tartar: When plaque becomes hardened on teeth due to poor dental hygiene, it turns into a permanent coating, called tartar, that can only be removed by a dentist.
  3. Tobacco Products: Particles from these products build up over repeated use and stain teeth. These stains and spots become harder to remove over time as a result of smoking, chewing, or dipping.
  4. Tooth Decay: Many people who don’t properly take care of their teeth develop decay around filling or cavities that leave dark spots.
  5. Poor Dental Hygiene:  If you fail to regularly brush and floss your teeth it leads to the buildup of plaque and tartar, which discolors teeth.
  6. Dental Fluorosis: Caused by consuming to much fluoride in your youth.

While many conditions can lead to the appearance of brown spots on teeth, dental fluorosis really causes concern because it indicates that you have been overexposed to fluoride.

Let’s take a closer look at the alarming truth about dental fluorosis and how it can affect your teeth.

What is Fluorosis?

For decades dentists have informed us that our children need fluoride to shield their teeth from cavities. The fact is…

FLUORIDE IS COMPLETELY TOXIC.

And when consumed in high concentrations, fluoride causes dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis is a dental term that describes the developmental disturbance in regards to the enamel. It is not a disease, but rather a cosmetic condition. Overexposure to fluoride causes fluorosis, especially during the years when the teeth are developing, typically up to age 8

The effects of fluoride on tooth enamel include lower mineral content and an increase in porosity. Typically, the dentist measures the damage by examining the surfaces of the teeth when clean, dry and under good lighting.

If the dentist suspects dental fluorosis, they can further examine your teeth and gums. X-rays are beneficial to make sure the teeth do not have any other defects, like cavities.

Determining Fluorosis Severity

The visual effects of Fluorosis dictates the severity. Let’s take a look at the varying degrees of damage:

  • Healthy, Normal Teeth: appear to have a smooth, glossy surface, that’s typically a pale white color.
  • Moderate Fluorosis: Moderate cases will affect all enamel surfaces of the teeth. The surfaces will show wear as brown staining as the main feature. Teeth can also begin to erode and even crumble.
  • Severe Fluorosis: In severe cases of dental fluorosis, the enamel can become discolored. Stains will develop over time, which is due to diffusion of exogenous icons, such as iron and copper, into the abnormally porous enamel. These stains appear brown and are widespread, making the teeth look corroded. This now affects all enamel surfaces. This may also affect the general form of the tooth.

Unfortunately, the visual effects of dental fluorosis can greatly affect one’s self-esteem… but luckily there is a way to instantly transform your smile!

Gum Flap Surgery

Gum flap surgery, also known as gingival surgery, is a procedure in which the gums are separated from the teeth and folded back temporarily to allow a dentist to reach the root of the tooth as well as the bone.

It is a leading method for treating and repairing periodontal pockets, which are areas below the gum line where the gum tissue has detached from the teeth. This results in the inability to clean the area properly and therefore harmful bacteria grows rapidly. This bacteria causes:

  • Inflammation of the gum tissues
  • Sensitivity, bleeding, and pain
  • Gum disease
  • Loss of tooth-supporting bone structure
  • Systemic problems that impact your whole body

Gum flap surgery cleans plaque and removes calculus from the root and also treats gum disease (periodontitis). While it isn’t a cure for gum disease, gum flap surgery helps create an environment that is more conducive to maintaining your overall periodontal health.

This Is What Happens When You Have Gum Flap Surgery

To start, the periodontist numbs the area with a local anesthetic.  Next, the doctor will use a scalpel to separate the gums from the teeth. Then they will lift or fold the gums back in the form of a flap.

This process gives the periodontist direct access to the roots and bones that are supporting the teeth.

Once the area is exposed, the dentist

  • Removes inflamed tissues from between the teeth and holes in the bone
  • Cleans plaque and tartar using a procedure called scaling and root planing
  • Eliminates bone defects with a procedure called osseous recontouring

After the procedure is finished, the doctor will place the gums back against the teeth and stitch them to anchor them in place. Depending on the stitches used, you may or may not have to have them removed a week after surgery. Often, a dressing covers the surgical site to protect it.

You may experience mild to moderate discomfort after surgery, for which your dentist may prescribe or suggest an over the counter pain reliever. Swelling is also common and they may suggest that you apply an ice pack to the outside of your face to minimize the effect.

Post procedure care is vital to your recovery and includes:

  • Keeping your mouth as clean as possible
  • Gently brushing and flossing the rest of your mouth
  • Using a toothbrush to gently remove plaque from the teeth of the surgical site (if a dressing is not covering the area)
  • Using an antimicrobial mouth rinse to kill bacteria and help the healing process
  • Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection
  • Follow up reexamine with your periodontist 7 to 10 days post surgery

Unfortunately, your gums in the surgery site are more likely to recede over time. Also, the teeth that were treated may become more sensitive to hot and cold and more likely to develop cavities in the roots.

If you addressed your underlying oral medical conditions and still aren’t satisfied with the appearance of your smile… then you have come to the right place.

Periodontal surgery exposed

Curious about periodontal surgery and its benefits? Read to the end for an exclusive offer at an alternative for periodontal surgery.

While some people think that “the more you know, the less you need to say” (Jim Rohn)…

This is certainly not the case when it comes to your oral health

The MORE you know about the state of your oral health, the MORE you need to speak up and tell your dentist about any issues or concerns you have.

Because the dismal reality is that if you don’t say anything, these problems WILL progress and potentially develop into diseases. Furthermore, you may need to have periodontal surgery.

Here’s what YOU need to know!

What Is Periodontal Surgery?

To get started, let’s first take a look at the definition of periodontal:

PERIODONTALRelating to or affecting the structures surrounding and supporting the teeth

Therefore, periodontal surgery refers to any surgery that focuses on the structures surrounding the teeth, such as your gums or bones.

Types of Periodontal Surgery

If you have developed gum disease, receding gum lines, or other issues with your gums, your periodontist may recommend periodontal surgery to treat and fix these issues.

There are a variety of procedures available depending on what your treatment plan requires:

Pocket ReductionAlso known as gingival flap surgery.

The surgeon folds back the gums and removes bacteria.

The gum tissue is then secured against your teeth (instead of letting it grow back itself)
Crown LengtheningAlso known as gingivectomy.

Gum tissue overgrowth is removed from your teeth.

Makes teeth appear longer.

Used for cosmetic effects a s well as to treat gum disease.
RegenerationThe periodontist folds back the gums and removes bacteria that causes diseases.

Bone grafts, tissue-stimulating proteins, or
membranes are then inserted to encourage gum
tissue regeneration.

The aim is to get the gums to fit securely around your teeth again.
Soft Tissue GraftAlso know an gingivoplasty.

Gum tissue is taken from elsewhere in your mouth
and attached to your gums.

Replaces gum tissue that has receded or damaged by gum disease.

Used for cosmetic purposes and improves the
appearance of your teeth.

Also treats gum disease because it covers exposed
roots


If you are unsure if you are a candidate for gum surgery or which type of gum surgery is best for you, a thorough examination by your dentist can determine what you need.

Cost of Periodontal Surgery

Depending on the severity of your disease and the type of procedure required, the cost of gum surgery varies GREATLY.

With prices between $500 to $10,000 and more, many insurance companies will cover at least part of the gum surgery cost. While these prices may seem shocking, delaying treatment can lead to more expensive and complex procedures in the future.

The main factors that affect costs are:

  • The location of your dentist.
  • The technology used in your procedure.
  • The type of treatment required.
  • The type of dental insurance you have.

With these factors in mind, here are the approximate costs for gum surgery:

Gingival flap surgeryTypically costs between $1000 and $3000 without insurance
GingivectomyAbout $200 to $400 per tooth
GingivoplastyAround  $600 to $1,200 per procedure

If your full mouth needs periodontal treatment and will require a variety of treatments, the total cost can average $4,000 to $6,000. However, if the damage is extensive it can cost you anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000.

If you have addressed your underlying oral health issues but still aren’t satisfied with the appearance of your teeth…. LISTEN UP (and keep reading)!

White spots on teeth and what you can do about them

What To Do When You See White Spots On Teeth

Whether it’s one spot, a blotch, or several speckels, seeing changes in your teeth is definitely something you need to be paying attention to.

Could it be tooth decay?

A dental disease?

Are these spots dangerous?

There are many influences which can cause white spots on teeth. To determine what is causing YOUR white spots, keep reading

Your dentist should be able to identify the reason why these spots have appeared on your teeth and possibly offer solutions. It never hurts, however, to ask if one of these could be the cause.

What causes white spots on teeth?

There are several possible causes of white spots on teeth:

  1. Dental Fluorosis: Caused by consuming too much fluoride in your youth.
  2. Enamel Hypoplasia: Caused by a person’s teeth enamel doesn’t function properly. Occurs during childhood when a person’s teeth are still developing. Increases the risk of tooth decay.
  3. Poor Dental Hygiene:  Failing to brush and take care of your teeth leads to tooth decay. Especially true for someone who has braces. Plaque accumulates and leaves deposits that look white, rough, and chipped.
  4. Eating too many sugary or acidic foods: Highly acidic foods eat away at your tooth enamel.
  5. Dehydration of the tooth enamel: Typically happens during the night if you sleep with your mouth open. These spots will usually disappear after a few hours once your mouth becomes properly hydrated with saliva.

While we can’t tell you for sure what is causing white spots on your teeth, any dentist should be able to tell you.

Now that you know the potential CAUSE of your white spots… what’s next?

The first thing to do is to learn how to prevent white spots from forming and then what you can do to get rid of them.

How do you prevent white spots on teeth?

One of the important factors to take into consideration in preventing future white spots, especially in children, is to monitor fluoride intake.

To prevent excess fluoride exposure in young children:

  • Monitor tooth brushing to make sure not too much toothpaste is used
  • Teach them not to swallow toothpaste
  • Avoid giving them tap water and offer filtered water instead
  • Cut back on drinks that contain fluoride such as fruit juices, bottled water, and soft drinks

General tips that everyone should follow in preventing white spots on teeth include:

  • Eat less sugar and acidic foods
  • Brush and floss on a regular basis
  • Use a quality toothpaste designed to remineralize your teeth  (ask your dentist for recommendations)
  • If you have braces, use an oral irrigator, such as a Waterpik, to ensure you clean between and around the brackets properly

Now that you are well aware of how to prevent white spots from appearing on your teeth, let’s look at what you can do to remove them.

How do you get rid of white spots on teeth?

Once you have been to a dentist and determined what is causing white spots on your teeth, the next step you can take is to get rid of them if you want to.

If the white spots aren’t severe, you have two easy options to “erase” them:

  • Microabrasion: Using mild abrasion (scraping), this procedures removes a layer of enamel from the tooth’s surface.
  • Bleaching: This process helps to balance the the color of your tooth’s enamel and lightens the tooth to match the color of the white spots.

If your spots are more severe as a result of dental fluorosis, microabrasion and bleaching won’t be able to offer much help in reducing the appearance of white spots.

However, thanks to technological advancements in recent years, transforming your teeth is becoming more accessible and affordable to people who never thought they could have a perfect smile.

Gum Surgery - What you don't know will hurt you!

Guess what?

You DON’T have to brush your teeth…

Just the ones you want to keep!

When it comes to maintaining supreme oral health, brushing and flossing on the daily is a no brainer. The scary truth is that when you don’t make oral health a priority, it opens the door for a slew of problems and diseases.

These issues may require you to need to have gum surgery – and that is certainly not something to smile about.

Will you need gum surgery?

You’re about to find out!

Who Needs Gum Surgery?

Gum surgery may be required for people who develop periodontal disease, which is a bacterial infection that infects the gum tissue and causes:

inflammationredness
swellingloss of bone around the teeth

The shocking truth is that 80 percent of adults in the United States have some form of periodontal disease (as reported by The National Institute of Health)!

Periodontal disease starts when bacteria collects in your mouth, attaches to your teeth, and then grows… and grows… and GROWS. This growth forms a biofilm that is commonly referred to as dental plaque.

When plaque is left on your teeth, it causes the nearby gum tissue to become irritated and inflamed. As a result, you may develop gingivitis, which is an early form of gum disease but can turn into a serious form of gum disease if left untreated.

To keep your teeth healthy and safe from gum disease, it is vital that you fight this bacteria by flossing and brushing at least twice daily. This cleans the teeth and stops plaque from forming at the gum line of your teeth.

On the other hand, when proper oral hygiene is NOT practiced, gingivitis will progress and your gum tissue will become more inflamed. You may also notice bleeding and “pockets” developing in your gums, which allows periodontal disease to develop.

Does Gum Surgery Cause Pain?

After gum surgery, many people have mild to moderate pain. This pain can easily be managed with pain relievers you can get at your local store.

If swelling occurs, ice can be gently applied to the area. Sometimes, the dentist may prescribe antibiotics to minimize the risk of any infection from developing.

It is expected that the gums will be sensitive following gum surgery. However, if excessive bleeding or swelling occurs, it is best to immediately contact your dentist with any problems.

Types of Gum Surgery

If you have developed gum disease, receding gum lines, or other issues with your gums, your dentist may recommend surgery to treat and fix these issues.

There are a variety of procedures available depending on what your treatment plan requires:

Used for cosmetic purposes and improves the appearance of your teeth.

Also treats gum disease because it covers exposed roots

If you are unsure if you need gum surgery or which type of gum surgery is best for you, a thorough examination by your dentist can determine what you need.

Depending on how advanced your gum issues are, your dentist may refer you to a periodontist, who is a doctor that specializes in treating gum disease.

What is fluorosis?

You have most likely heard about fluoride at some point in your life… and how dentists claim that it “strengthens” your teeth and “minimizes cavities”. What is fluorosis?

How much do you really know about fluoride?

Is it safe?

How much fluoride is too much?

Well, the scary truth is that any amount of fluoride has the power to harm you. Here’s why:

FLUORIDE IS COMPLETELY TOXIC.

Let’s first take a look at what fluoride is and then the horrible dangers it poses to your health and wellness.

What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral in your teeth and bones and is found naturally in water, soil, plants, rocks, and air. It is also synthetically produced and added to drinking water, toothpaste, mouthwash, and other chemical products.

When it comes to your health, fluoride is primarily used to “improve” dental care because it is thought to strengthen the enamel of the teeth.

However, the scary truth is that much of the water supply in the USA is still fluoridated. Plus you get additional exposure from dental products, meaning you are constantly subjected to FLUOROSIS!

What is fluorosis?

You can find fluoride both naturally and artificially in water. By the time we account for concentrated, fluoridated dental products and materials, it’s not hard for the average person to unintentionally (or intentionally!) consume too much fluoride:

Fluoride consumed at elevated levels is know to have seriously detrimental effects on the human body.

It’s important to note that off-the-shelf oral hygiene products suggested by dentist offices typically contribute to the excessive ingestion of fluoride:

  • In a large data collection effort regarding fluoride poisoning, the American Association of Poison Control (AAPC). determined that toothpaste ingestion was the main source of fluoride toxicity. Other likely culprits are mouthwashes and supplements.
  • Over 80% of the cases of fluoride toxicity reported, were in children under the age of 6. They found children of this age group ingest more toothpaste than ‘recommended’ because their swallowing reflex hasn’t completely developed.

So what is fluorosis? When you consume too much fluoride, it harms your overall health and can cause a variety of problems, such as:

  • Dental Fluorosis: A dental term that describes the developmental disturbance in regards to the enamel. It is not a disease, but rather a cosmetic condition. Consuming  fluoride is especially concerning during the years when the teeth are developing, typically up to age 8.

These conditions are highly alarming and you should take every precaution possible to keep you and your family safe.

Where should you start? Look no further than your drinking water…

Fluorosis From Water: Are You Drinking Too Much Fluoride?

There is a plethora of information and research that shows the dangerous side effects of using fluoride. On the other hand, there are very few studies that show any significant benefits from drinking water containing fluoride.

Water fluoridation is an extremely controversial topic. Some view it as a public health measure, while others consider it an example of mass, systemic poisoning.

That extreme view isn’t unfounded, considering fluoridated water accounts for 40% of all dental fluorosis cases. We consume these (sometimes) dangerous levels of fluoride via drinking water, children’s formula, or foods prepared with public drinking water

This is a simple case of “You better be safe than sorry” and keep you and your family safe by avoiding fluoride. Follow these simple safety tips:

  • Drinking filtered and purified water
  • Using a homemade or all natural fluoride free toothpaste
  • Making a fluoride free mouthwash

What is fluorosis takeaway? Always remember when it comes to fluoride toxicity is:

Regulating the amount of fluoride you consume is crucial to your overall health.

Better yet, your safest bet is to avoid fluoride altogether.

Do you or someone you know have fluorosis? Are you concerned that Fluoride in water is staining your teeth? Would you like a solution that doesn’t require a dentist visit and saves you 70%*?

The Downside of Gingivoplasty

When you want to enhance the look of your “gummy” smile, dentist offices will often offer a procedure called gingivoplasty.

When you have a less than stellar smile, such as a “gummy” smile, it can really stunt your confidence and hold back from spreading the cheer

As the MOST recognized facial expression, your smile matters.

No only does smiling make you happier, but it also spreads good vibes to others.

Luckily, there is a way to take back your smile and get a glowing grin!

Let’s take a closer look at what gingivoplasty is, it’s helpful upsides, it’s disastrous downsides, as well as your best option to finally get a better and brighter smile.

What Is Gingivoplasty?

Gingivoplasty, is the surgical reshaping of gum tissue around the teeth and is a purely cosmetic procedure for enhancing one’s smile.

When the gum tissue is not formed normally or has an unusual shape, gingivoplasty makes gums look more natural. The abnormalities can be caused by a person’s genes, trauma, or diseases.

This involves either removing excessive tissue by trimming the gums back or adding tissue to  the gum line by using a gum graft. A laser or scalpel will even out the gum lines with a supreme level of precision.

What is a gingivoplasty procedure?

As you have previously read, gingivoplasty is the surgical reshaping of healthy gum tissue for cosmetic reasons. A person may choose to get a gingivoplasty to:

  • Create more attractive gums
  • Fix a “gummy smile”
  • Help shape grafted gums
  • Rebuild gums damaged by disease

While there are benefits to having a gingivoplasty, it is still a surgery… and as with any surgery, there are drawbacks you need to be aware of.

The Downside of Gingivoplasty

How painful is gingivoplasty?

Some of the top questions regarding receiving gingivoplasty are the pain and risks associated with the procedure.

  1. Pain
    • Often described as tolerable, with most of the pain happening after the appointment is over and the numbing has worn off.
    • Most patients associate minimal pain with laser or scalpel gingivectomy.
    • Recovery involves wearing a periodontal dressing for 7-10 days after your procedure.
  2. Risks
    • Depending on the state of your mouth at the time of the procedure, inflammation from previous dental work or chronic health issues must be taken into consideration to avoid an uneven outcome.
    • When inflamed the dentist shapes the gum next to normal gum tissue, this increases the risk of incomplete removal of gum tissue.
    • Secondary surgeries may be needed to correct issues.
    • Infection is possible. During recovery you should be careful what you eat and keep your mouth as clean as possible.

For those that suffer from dental phobia or dental anxiety, repeated dental visits trigger and heighten these conditions. For individuals suffering with less than satisfactory smiles, depression can fluctuate knowing the risks involved in having gum surgery.

If you are someone considering a gingivectomy, there are other options your dentist may educate you on as alternatives to traditional dental and smile correction. Or you can take matters into your own hands and avoid ALL of the pain and risks of gingivoplasty.

Buyer Beware: this video contains disturbing information

Buyer Beware! Traditional Dental Veneers from a cosmetic dentist are not what they seem!

Buyer Beware! I absolutely promise you after this video you’ll never look at traditional dental veneers from a cosmetic dentist the same.

My name is Bil Watson. I’m a smile designer for Brighter Image Lab. I want to show you the risks that are really involved with buying traditional dental veneers, because you’re not getting the full story.

Buyer Beware! Traditional dental veneers are not permanent

My number-one problem with traditional dental veneers is they call them permanent, and they should never call a dental veneer permanent. It should never be called permanent. They’re not made to last more than five or six years.

That’s at best! 51% of all cosmetic dentistry is work that’s being redone. 51% didn’t come from me, it came from the American Academy of cosmetic dentistry. There’s two things you need to know:

One, you have a choice and removable dental veneers are truly the future. At Brighter Image Lab, we design a removable veneer that’s designed to improve your smile without destroying your teeth. If you were to take the value of what an actual tooth costs to develop and mature over a lifetime, it’s worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions. You sit down in one dentist visit and have them grind that tooth down to a pulp, then they seal that tooth with the veneer and cement.

Buyer Beware – An investment that depreciates

Your hope is is that it won’t wear down or the color won’t change. If you’re lucky, the gums won’t recede and your hope is is that it’ll continue to last. How many times have you ever heard a dentist say, “These are smiles that I had to redo because they didn’t last?” All you do know is he’s going to grind down your natural teeth to a stump and he’s gonna charge you two to three thousand dollars per tooth for every tooth that he wants to destroy.

Then he’s gonna try to improve your smile. I’m gonna show you a series of pictures. Take a second, look at this smile. This was done less than ten to twelve years ago and today it’s the smile that she’s more embarrassed about than she would have been if she never had the work done at all. They won’t show you the dentist who did the original work with a search warrant and I think that’s a problem.

This is another picture I want to show you. This person had thousands of dollars of work done before. Now, let’s look at the after. The fact was just as bad as before by today’s standards. This guy paid thousands dollars the first time, and paid thousands of dollars a second time after going to a cosmetic dentist, twice! He still wishes that they can get it redone.

This is not a position that you want to be in, and that’s the reason why the future of dental veneers are changing.

Here’s one I want to tell you about. It means the world to me this lady had veneers put on and in the case that in her teeth rotted through the dental veneers, and she had to have them redone. A lot of people would look at this and say they’re too big, or they’re too bulky, or they’re too thick. It’s not her first time to pay for it. We don’t know that there won’t be a third time.

Here’s another one. Lady probably had some of the best dental veneers during the time they were done. Ten years later, thousands more dollars are invested in changing that smile. She had to live with this for so long that it was absolutely embarrassing. She couldn’t live with it any longer.

There’s a reason we are saying buyer beware

I’m telling you 51% is not lying. There’s too much chance, there’s too much risk, and at 51% wanted it redone, you know that there’s another 10% that which they can afford to have it redone. You know there’s another 15% that wish they had never done it.

Now you have another choice. You don’t have to sit there and suffer a bad smile just because you refuse to have your teeth ground.

I did work for this lady out of Australia, and her dentist clearly told her there’s all sorts of liabilities. You’ll have to sign a waiver. She refused to do it.

This lady out of Miami told me her mother had a friend whose dental veneers came off while they were eating and it horrified her. She refused to grind her teeth. She found another solution. We’ve been happy to work with her, and we’re friends today.

Never let a dentist grind your teeth without presenting another option

This lady right here is a top model in Germany. She absolutely refused to let a dentist grind her teeth. They’re going to not grind teeth under any circumstances, and I think it’s because they know the natural teeth are worth too much.

Nothing’s more important than your smile, and I think you owe it to yourself to tell your dentist you have time to look at some other options. I promise, you have time if you take all the money that we’ve saved all the clients that we’ve helped in this year, we think it will actually save a billion dollars, and let me explain.

$13,500 is the average savings of what we save someone over the cost of going to a cosmetic dentist. Guess who gets that money? You do! Guess who loses that money? Your dentist!

Brown stains on teeth is one of the possible effects of Fluorosis

Brown stains on teeth (tooth discoloration) is an aesthetic problem that is linked to a variety of causes.

These unsightly brown stains on teeth are often a source of embarrassment and can damage not only your teeth, but your self esteem as well

Brown stains on teeth is one of the possible effects of Fluorosis

The absolute number one facial feature is your SMILE!

While poor dental care or eating certain foods can affect the appearance of teeth, what could be truly causing these brown stains on teeth may be lurking in your tap water, TOOTHPASTE, and mouthwash.

Yes, really!

So wait… products that are meant to HELP your teeth could actually be harming them?

It’s true.

The reason is that many standard oral hygiene products are loaded with fluoride. This exposure combined with drinking fluoridated tap water ends up creating a toxic level of fluoride in your body.

This toxic level leads to a condition known as dental fluorosis, which causes brown stains and damages your teeth.

What is Dental Fluorosis?

For decades dentists have informed us that our children need fluoride to shield their teeth from cavities. The fact is…

FLUORIDE IS COMPLETELY TOXIC.

And when consumed in high concentrations, fluoride causes dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis is a dental term that describes the developmental disturbance in regards to the enamel. It is not a disease, but rather a cosmetic condition. Overexposure to fluoride causes fluorosis, especially during the years when the teeth are developing, typically up to age 8.

The effects of fluoride on tooth enamel include lower mineral content and an increase in porosity. Typically, the dentist measures the damage by examining the surfaces of the teeth when clean, dry and under good lighting.

If the dentist suspects dental fluorosis, they can further examine your teeth and gums. X-rays are beneficial to make sure the teeth do not have any other defects, like cavities.

Dental fluorosis causes varying degrees of both aesthetic and physical damage to your teeth.

What causes brown stains on teeth of children?

The visual effects of fluorosis dictates the severity and varying degrees of damage:

  • Healthy, Normal Teeth: appear to have a smooth, glossy surface, that’s typically a pale white color.
  • Moderate Fluorosis: Moderate cases will affect all enamel surfaces of the teeth. The surfaces will show wear as brown staining as the main feature. Teeth can also begin to erode and even crumble.
  • Severe Fluorosis: In severe cases of dental fluorosis, the enamel can become discolored. Brown stains on teeth will develop over time, which is due to diffusion of exogenous icons, such as iron and copper, into the abnormally porous enamel. These brown stains on teeth are widespread, making the teeth look corroded. All enamel surfaces are now affected. The general form of the tooth may also be affected.

Dental fluorosis causes something that is called intrinsic discoloration.  What this means is that the inner structure  of your tooth, the dentin, darkens or gets a yellow tint. These intrinsic brown stains on teeth are much deeper and are permanent. It is usually not possible to neutralize or lighten this type of discoloration.

Unfortunately, intrinsic discoloration caused by dental fluorosis can greatly affect one’s confidence… but fortunately there is a way to instantly transform your smile!

Next, let’s take a closer look at choosing the BEST option to get rid of those pesky stains.

How do you get brown stains off your teeth?

We have some good news and bad news.

The bad news is that brown stains caused by dental fluorosis are, like we previously mentioned, permanent. This means that no amount of teeth whitening will truly change the color of your teeth.

Can a dentist get rid of brown teeth stains?

Other methods of removing stains, such as contouring or traditional veneers, can potentially enhance the appearance of your teeth. However, these techniques pose several concerns that you must consider:

Contouring:

  • Puts you at risk for tooth breakage
  • Can cause teeth to become weak
  • Only slightly improves appearance
  • Causes sensitivity if too much enamel is removed
  • Permanently alters the tooth structure

Traditional Veneers:

  • Process is NOT reversible
  • Not repairable if they chip or crack
  • Teeth sensitivity to hot and cold
  • May not match exact color of other teeth
  • Upwards of $20,000 + for a complete smile makeover

As you can see… the risks and price of these procedures aren’t worth it!

But don’t fret just yet because there is a simple and affordable solution to instantly transform your teeth and your smile.

Are you a victim of fluoride toxicity

Are You At Risk of The Dangers of Fluoride Toxicity?

Do you brush your teeth? Have you drank tap water throughout your life? If you answered “YES” to either or both of these, then you could be putting yourself at risk of the dangers of consuming too much fluoride. Why does this matter? Because when you ingest a lot of fluoride it causes a damaging health condition known as fluoride toxicity!

Let’s first take a look at what fluoride is and then the horrible dangers it poses to your health and wellness when over consumed.

What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral in your teeth and bones and is found naturally in water, soil, pants,  rocks, and air. It is also synthetically produced and added to drinking water, toothpaste, mouthwash, and other chemical products.

When it comes to your health, fluoride is primarily used to “improve” dental care because it is thought to strengthen the enamel of the teeth.

However, the scary truth is that because much of the water supply in the USA is still fluoridated. Plus you get additional exposure from dental products, which means you are most likely overloaded with FLUORIDE!

We’re not talking minor health issues… TOO much fluoride causes a condition known as fluoride toxicity.

What is Fluoride Toxicity?

You have most likely heard about fluoride at some point in your life.

But, how much do you really know about it?

Though there are some potential benefits of fluoride, however regulating the amount of fluoride you consume is crucial. Fluoride occurs both naturally and artificially in water. By the time we account for concentrated, fluoridated dental products and materials, it’s not hard for the average person to unintentionally (or intentionally!) consume too much fluoride:

Fluoride consumed at elevated levels is know to have seriously detrimental effects on the human body.

One of the most alarming conditions that is a result of fluoride toxicity is skeletal fluorosis.

Skeletal Fluorosis: Are You At Risk?

Uncontrolled fluoride consumption’s damaging powers are vast. Health problems associated with fluoride toxicity include bone cancer, brain cell damage, muscle disorders, arthritis, bone fractures, cell death, blood disorders, infertility, and a condition called skeletal fluorosis.

Skeletal fluorosis is a bone disease caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in your bones. The horrifying symptoms of this disease include:

  • Painful damage to your bones and joints
  • Hardened bone with increased frequency of fractures
  • Impaired joint mobility due to  thickening of the bone structure and accumulation of bone tissue.
  • Cartilage and ligaments  become ossified (turn into bone or bony tissue)

Skeletal fluorosis is a crippling, yet preventable, disease. Unfortunately, there are no effective therapeutic remedies available which have the power to cure fluorosis.

Therefore, you must take caution and be absolutely vigilant in monitoring you and your family’s fluoride intake.

The Dangers of Excessive Ingestion (Fluoride Toxicity)

It’s important to note that off-the-shelf oral hygiene products contribute heavily to excessive ingestion of fluoride:

  • In a large data collection effort regarding fluoride poisoning, the American Association of Poison Control (AAPC). determined that toothpaste ingestion was the main source of fluoride toxicity. Other likely culprits are mouthwashes and supplements.
  • Over 80% of the cases of fluoride toxicity reported, were in children under the age of 6. They found children of this age group ingest more toothpaste than pediatric dentists ‘recommend’ because they haven’t completely developed their swallowing reflex.

When consumed in large quantity, fluoride leads to dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis is a dental term that describes the developmental disturbance in regards to the enamel. It is not a disease, but rather a cosmetic condition. The effects of fluoride on tooth enamel include lower mineral content and an increase in porosity.

Fluoride In Water & Are You Drinking Too Much?

There is a plethora of information and research that shows the dangerous side effects of using fluoride. On the other hand, there are very few studies that show any significant benefits from drinking water containing fluoride.

When it comes to dental fluorosis, water fluoridation is an extremely controversial topic. Some view it as a public health measure, while others consider it an example of mass, systemic poisoning.

Fluoridated water accounts for 40% of all dental fluorosis cases, so there is a foundation for this extreme view. We consume these (sometimes) dangerous levels of fluoride via drinking water, children’s formula, or foods prepared with public drinking water.

This is a simple case of “You better be safe than sorry” and keep you and your family safe by avoiding excessive fluoride consumption. Follow these simple safety tips:

  • Drinking filtered and purified water
  • Using a homemade or all natural fluoride free toothpaste
  • Making a fluoride free mouthwash

What To Do About Fluoride Toxicity

Do you or someone you know have fluorosis? Are you concerned that Fluoride in water is staining your teeth? Would you like a solution that doesn’t require a dentist office visit and saves you 70%*?

Receding gum lines can be a warning of other oral issues

“A smile is the universal welcome.”

– Max Eastman

Receding gum lines can be a warning of other oral issues

The saying goes that a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear.

However, when you have problematic or unsightly gums or teeth, it can certainly hold you back from welcoming all of the beauty the universe has to offer.

A top gum issue that impacts many people’s smile is gum recession. From what it is to what causes it, here is what you need to know about receding gum lines.

What does Receding Gums mean?

Gum recession, also known as a receding gum line, is when the edge of the gum tissue that surrounds your teeth pulls back and wears away. As a result, more of your tooth or the tooth’s root is exposed.

When this happens, it forms gaps or “pockets” between your gum line and teeth. This makes it easy for bacteria to build up and cause issues and diseases. If receding gums are left untreated, it can result in tooth loss because the bone structures and supporting tissue of the teeth become critically damaged.

While gum recession is a common dental issue, it occurs gradually and many people don’t recognize the signs and symptoms:

  • The first sign of a receding gum line is tooth sensitivity.
  • A tooth or teeth may look longer that normal.
  • A notch can be felt near the gum line.

If you suspect you have gum recession, it is NOT something that you want to brush aside. Because there are treatments that both prevent further damage and repair the gums, it is recommended that you make an appointment with your dentist right away.

Can receding gums grow back?

There are several factors that can cause your gums to recede:

Periodontal DiseasesBacterial gum infections
Destroys supporting bone and gum tissue that hold your teeth in place.
The MAIN cause of gum recession is gum disease!
Rough Tooth BrushingAggressive brushing (either the wrong way or too hard) causes the enamel to wear away.
As a result, your gums will recede.
Genes30 percent of the population is predisposed to gum disease.
This is regardless of supreme oral care.
Poor Dental
Care
Insufficient brushing, flossing, and rinsing allow tartar to build.
Tartar is hard and requires removal by a dentist.
This removal procedure can lead to gum recession.
Grinding &
Clenching
These actions put too much force on your teeth and causes gum recession.
Tobacco
Products
Using tobacco increases your chance of sticky plaque forming on your teeth.
Plaque is hard to remove and can cause gums to recede.
Misaligned
Teeth
Crooked teeth place too much pressure on your bones and gums.
A misaligned bite can cause a receding gum line.
Oral PiercingTongue or lip piercings rub your gums and causes irritation.
This rubbing can wear away gum tissue.
Hormonal
Fluctuation
Changes in female hormone levels can cause gums to become more sensitive and vulnerable to the receding gums.
Hormonal fluctuations include puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.  

As we previously mentioned, it is vital to your oral health to schedule an appointment with your dentist so that he or she can assess the severity of the receding gum line and recommend a course of treatment, as receding gums do not grow back.

Next, let’s take a closer look how you can INSTANTLY improve your smile and the appearance of your gum line.

Gum Contouring Before and After

Curious about the effects before and after gum contouring? Would it interest you to know that gum contouring is rarely necessary? Read on to learn more!

Did you know that it takes LESS effort to smile than to frown?

It’s a FACT! Frowning requires a shocking 50 muscles… while producing a smile only needs 13.

However, when you have a “gummy smile”, your mouth most likely isn’t getting a work out at all.

Are you looking for a way to enhance the appearance of your smile?

For some, gum contouring is an effective solution. However, given the astronomical cost of the procedure versus how little it does in return may leave you seeking a more affordable and effective solution.

Let’s take a look at what gum contouring is, what to expect before and after the procedure, and a stunning alternative that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

What Is Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring is a form of cosmetic dentistry that is used to correct and reshape excessive or uneven gums.

Prior to the procedure, the dentist will use a local anesthesia to numb the area. Next, the dentist will fix the uneven gum line by removing the excess gum tissue as needed and then sculpt the gum line with a laser or other cutting tool until it appears even and natural.

This process exposes a little more of the enamel of the teeth and can usually be done in one office visit.

Also known as gum lifting, gum contouring is a relatively painless procedure. While some people do experience discomfort and swelling for the first few days after the procedure, the healing time is typically quick.

Now that you know what gum contouring is, let’s take a closer look at what before and after gum contouring effects look like.

What are the effects before and after gum contouring?

Gum contouring is able to offer slight changes in your smile’s appearance. However, gum contouring CAN’T completely alter and transform your smile, especially if you have misaligned, crooked, cracked, chipped, or stained teeth.

Here are the changes you can expect from having a gum contouring procedure:

BEFOREAFTER


Excessive gum tissue
Uneven gum lines
Stubby or small tooth shape


Balanced gum tissue
Even and natural gum lines
Attractive tooth shape
A more symmetrical smile
Immediate, yet minor, results

These behind the scenes before and after gum contouring photos can give you an idea about the changes to expect. Please be aware that results can alter dramatically depending on your condition as well as who performs the surgery:

Gum Contouring Before and After

Next, let’s look at the cost of this procedure to see if it’s even worth it.

How much is gum contouring?

Unfortunately, gum contouring can cost $50 to $350 to shape and remove the gum around a SINGLE tooth. The price range is so vast because the cost depends on:

  • Extent of the work needed
  • Local rates
  • Expertise and reputation of the dentist
  • Sedation method

The damage or overgrowth rarely is limited to just one tooth. Therefore the total costs for extensive gum reshaping and contouring for the visible teeth in the front can easily cost $3,000 or MORE!

Luckily, there is an easier and more affordable way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
