Many patients visit our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS, to get dental implants. Our expert dentist, Dr. J. Foster Weems, is happy to be able to provide attractive and perfectly placed Newport Beach CA dental implants for our patients.

Newport Beach CA dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method at our office because a dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Our dentist will assess whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants, by determining the health and thickness of your jawbone. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for this treatment, he will proceed with the dental implant treatment. Our dentist will determine the exact location for placement of the titanium dental implant root. A titanium dental implant root will then be surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There is then a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the new dental implant root will completely fuse to the jawbone. This fusion process is what allows dental implants to be so secure and steady in your mouth. Once the healing has completed, a beautiful porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. At this point, your dental implant will be complete and you will be able to eat, speak, and smile with total confidence, and in total comfort. All you will need to do to take care of your dental implant is to practice excellent oral hygiene. You will need to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis, and have regular dental cleanings every six months.

He will also check to make sure that there are no cracks in any of the dental fillings and that dental restorations are holding up well. Your gums will also be checked to make sure that you do not have gingivitis or mild-to-moderate gum disease. Our dentist will also thoroughly screen your mouth for any signs of oral cancer during our dental exams.

If you are unhappy because you never had your teeth straightened when you were a teen, we urge you to visit us at our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS. At our dental practice, our top-notch dentist, Dr. J. Foster Weems, can provide you with Newport Beach Invisalign treatment for a straight and attractive smile.

Many of our patients enjoy being treated with Newport Beach Invisalign because they enjoy having their teeth straightened using clear plastic aligners instead of having to wear metal wires and brackets on their teeth. Depending on the bite situation being corrected, a patient’s individualized set of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. The aligners are created using CAD/CAM computer technology, and will provide you with the exact orthodontic correction that you need in order to have the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Treatment with Invisalign invisible braces takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Each aligner in the series is worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner. Once the last aligner in the series is worn, you will have your beautiful, new smile. Treatment with Invisalign offers many benefits to our patients, including the fact that they will never need to be embarrassed by wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. Our patients also enjoy the fact that they are able to eat anything they want during the entire treatment period, because the clear aligners are removed during eating. The patients also remove the aligners so that they can thoroughly brush and floss their teeth every day. This means that your teeth have an excellent chance of being as healthy at the end of the treatment as they are at the beginning.

Do you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay as healthy as possible? If so, you will want to come to our dental practice not only for teeth cleanings but for periodic dental exams. Visiting the dentist every six months is not only great for your dental health, but it can also be cost-effective as well. This is because when it comes to dental health, an ounce of prevention is often worth a pound of cure. It is much easier to fix a dental problem when it is in the early stages, rather than wait until it is advanced and needs more involved care. The same is also true with coming in to our practice for a teeth cleaning in Newport Beach.

When you have a teeth cleaning in Newport Beach at our dental practice you are also helping to keep gum disease from forming in your mouth. It is much easier to have a periodic teeth cleaning then to end up having to be treated for gum disease. At our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS, our top-notch dentist of 25 years is Dr. J. Foster Weems. When patients come to our office for a comprehensive dental exam they have all aspects of their oral health examined. To begin with, our patients generally have a full set of x-rays taken to make sure that there are no problems developing under the gum line or between the teeth. Our dentist will then fully examine your teeth for signs of decay or other problems such as teeth grinding.

Our dentist will go on and continue to examine your mouth for any signs of oral cancer. Your gums will be thoroughly analyzed to make sure they are healthy and are not developing any deep pockets. If this is the case and it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our dentist may recommend that you have a teeth cleaning in Newport Beach at our office several times over the coming months. If it is determined that you have gum disease, our dentist may recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment to help clear out the deep pocket set of form between your teeth and gums. Finally, your fight will be checked to make sure no problems are developing from TMJ or other oral health issues.

Metal free dentistry in Newport Beach

It seems that more and more, patients are interested in receiving metal free dentistry care. We certainly respect our patients’ desires, and so our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS, provides patients with the option of having metal free dentistry. Our Newport Beach dentist is pleased to be able to offer this treatment option to all.

Some of our patients are concerned about the use of metal fillings. To accommodate these concerns we offer our patients the option of using advanced, new fillings made of tooth-colored materials. Patients are still able to receive treatment with traditional silver amalgam fillings at our dental practice, but everyone will have the choice of receiving fillings which are made of the new tooth-colored materials. These new fillings have several advantages over the traditional silver fillings. However, there are some disadvantages as well. The new tooth-colored composite fillings are made to perfectly color-match your teeth, so no one will be able to tell that a cavity has been filled on your tooth. These fillings also call for less removal of dental enamel. However, the procedure used to install these fillings is a more involved, so they are sometimes more expensive to receive than traditional metal fillings. You will want to check with your insurance company to make sure that these types of fillings are covered. Tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth, so they will make the tooth stronger. However, tooth-colored fillings may eventually chip or even break, as they are not as strong as the silver amalgam fillings. It is generally recommended that if a cavity is large, or the cavity is on a flat chewing surface of a molar, that our patient has it filled with an amalgam filling. However, we will certainly respect our patients concerns and desires when it comes to the filling material that is being used. Our Newport Beach dentist will make a recommendation on the type of filling material he thinks will work best, based on the size and location of the cavity.

At our top notch dental practice, our expert and highly trained Newport Beach dentist is Dr. J. Foster Weems.

Our cosmetic dentist offers an in-office state-of-the-art teeth bleaching system which will make your teeth whiter and brighter in just one visit.

Other times, our dentist may recommend a specific way to go, depending upon the patient’s individual smile situation where the type of staining that is on their teeth.

Our cosmetic dentist will want to meet with you and assess your smile situation before any teeth whitening procedure is proceeded with. If you have tooth-colored composite fillings, or porcelain veneers, you may need to have additional procedures performed after tooth whitening to make sure that the look of your smile is uniform and inviting. This may be necessary because teeth whitening and bleaching solutions only affect the natural tooth enamel; they have no effect on porcelain or composite tooth products. Our dentist will also want to review your oral situation to determine if there is any reason why you may experience sensitivity from the tooth whitening product. It should also be determined what is causing the staining on your teeth, and make sure that tooth bleaching and whitening will improve it.
