3 Tips for your Best Smile 

Guest Blog by Sarah Mack Photography

Our patient and best photographer in Costa Mesa shares her favorite tips for capturing your best smile in photos for all of your special events!

Don’t forget to check out more of Sarah’s work at www.sarahmackphoto.com!

Tip 1: Get Goofy!

The photos you will love and cherish for a lifetime are those candid moments that you are truly in the moment having a great time! How you felt when you were taking the photo can be just as important as how you look.  Don’t be afraid to get silly! Little giggles or full on belly laugh are the best moments! I ask my clients do all sorts of fun and silly things, to keep them moving and having fun! More often than not, these are the photos that they hang in their homes to bring them joy every single day.

Tip 2: Treat yourself to a Teeth Whitening

Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson - Costa Mesa Dentist - Emergency Dentist - Saturday Dentist - Dental Crowns - Dental Bridges - Dental Implants - Invisalign - Veneers - Teeth Whitening

Nothing makes a smiles shine more than bright pearly whites. Don’t be afraid to show those chompers! Getting a teeth whitening the week before your session insures you will have full confidence that your smile shines as bright as you feel.

Tip 3: Choose a lip color that makes your Smile Pop!

Choosing blue based tones rather than orange reds make your teeth gleam! It all has to do with the color wheel. Blue is the exact opposite of yellow, so the visual effect of a red shade with a blue bass helps to make your teeth seem whiter.

When choosing a lipstick, remember that orange and yellow hues tend to bring that same color out in you teeth. Stay away from pinks and reds with an orangy tint.Sarah Mack - Sarah Mack Photography - Costa Mesa Photography - Costa Mesa photographer - wedding photographer - engagement photographer - baby photographer - Advanced Dental Care - Costa Mesa dentist

Darker colors like plum and deep red make for a beautiful contrast to make your pearly whites pop!

If you prefer lighter pinks, lean towards a version with a berry hue, rather than a peachy hue.

Are Porcelain Veneers right for me?

January 17, 2019

Porcelain Veneers in Costa Mesaveneers in mouth

Have you ever wondered how you can fix that chip on your front tooth or teeth damaged in an accident or just close a small gap?  You may have a variety of options including dental Porcelain Veneers.  Porcelain veneers are custom-made, wafer-thin sheets of porcelain bonded to the front of your natural tooth.  They can instantly change the appearance and warmth of your smile.

Deciding whether Porcelain Veneers are a good option for you is a choice that you should make with a dentist you trust.  Your dentist will perform an examination to let you know if you are a good candidate for dental veneers and discuss the options for achieving your dream smile.

Things to Consider when Choosing Dental Veneers

  • Facial Shape
  • Facial Symmetry
  • Shape of Teeth
  • Shape of Smile
  • Shade
  • Brightness
  • Size (length, width)
  • Gum line
  • Occlusion

The Dental Veneers Process

Depending on how quickly you want to start dental veneers, you may achieve your dream smile in as little as two visits to our Costa Mesa dental office.  For patients with more flexibility, it is best to take additional steps in the dental veneer process to ensure the best results.

Initial Visit

Scheduling your initial visit with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson couldn’t be any easier!  You can book online 24/7 or call, text, or email us with you desired appointment times.

Before Porcelain Veneer Treatment – Concerns: Thin Enamel and Peg Laterals with old Bonding

Once you arrive for your initial visit and have registered, you will meet with Dr. Jorgenson to discuss what imperfections are bothering you about your smile and what your ideal smile would look like.  Dr. Jorgenson will conduct an examination to provide all possible treatment options.  He will then go over the many factors that must be evaluated when performing dental veneers to ensure we achieve your desired size, shape, shade, and overall aesthetic for your face.

We’ll use before and afters, shade guides, and smile libraries to help you choose the smile that is best for you!

Initial Impressions

Once you’ve decided to move forward with the veneers process, we’ll start by taking impressions of your current smile so the lab knows exactly where the teeth are currently located and the size, shape, and occlusion of the teeth.  After taking the impressions, we send them to the lab with instructions on how to fabricate your Porcelain Veneers.

Wax-Up and Adjustments (Optional)

Our lab will create a plaster model of your current smile called a diagnostic cast and place the proposed shape and size veneers on the cast using dental wax.  This allows you to envision what your smile could look like in real life 3D!  You can review the proposed shape, size, approximate shade, alignment, and overall appearance of your new smile before the lab makes your permanent porcelain veneers.  You will work with Dr. Jorgenson to make any adjustments to the diagnostic wax-up.

Prep and Temporaries

You are finally ready to start the physical preparation for porcelain veneers.  Dr. Jorgenson begins by removing a thin layer of your natural tooth enamel to create creating a smooth, flat surface where the porcelain veneer will be placed.  We only remove as much enamel as needed to bond the veneer in the proper placement for the most realistic, natural look.  This is typically about half of a millimeter.

Once the teeth are prepped, a final impression is taken and this impression sent to the lab to make the permanent veneers.  Next, we create temporary teeth-shaped coverings from an acrylic material to protect the teeth while the lab creates your permanent veneers.  Temporary veneers do not look like permanent veneers and are only created to cover and protect the prepped teeth.

Temporary Veneers – Teeth-shaped covering made from Acrylic

For most patients, this is the worst part of the process.  You’re expecting a perfect smile, but instead the temporaries aren’t going to look perfect.  Temporaries are not meant to last forever so be gentle to prevent fracturing.  Avoid hard, sticky foods or foods that stain teeth easily.  Your permanent veneers will be ready for final placement in 1-2 weeks.

 

Final Placement

The big day has finally come! You’re ready to finalize your dream smile.  On the day of your final placement, you will again be numbed for your comfort.  Dr. Jorgenson will remove the temporary veneers and make sure the teeth are clean.  Then he will slide the permanent veneers into place so you can see what your new smile will look like and make any adjustments before the permanent cementation.

Beautiful, Natural-looking Porcelain Veneers

Once you’ve given us the thumbs up, Dr. Jorgenson will polish the teeth and apply an etching solution to the enamel where the veneers will be cemented.  The etching material creates a more ideal surface for adhering the porcelain veneer to the natural tooth.  Once the tooth is etched, the bonding or specialized tooth-colored cement will then be applied to the veneer and the veneer placed on your tooth.  Once the veneer is in perfect position, it is cured or hardened into place using an ultraviolet curing light. This process continues until each porcelain veneer is permanently cemented.

Presto Chango! You have achieved your Dream Smile!

Zoom! Teeth Whitening is a professional, in-office teeth whitening that can whiten teeth up to 8 shades lighter in just one hour!

How does Zoom! Teeth Whitening work?

Dr. Jeremy jorgenson - costa mesa dentist - teeth whitening costa mesa - teeth whitening special - cosmetic dentist - cosmetic dentistry - best cosmetic dentist near me - teeth whitening options - in-office teeth whitening - zoom teeth whitening - ultradent teeth whitening - epic laser teeth whitening - take-home bleaching trays - best dentist ocZoom! is a proven professional teeth whitening system.  The whitening system is an in-office procedure performed by a trained dental assistant.

A prescription strength hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel with pH booster is applied to your teeth andbreaks down stain forming molecules on tooth enamel.  This process is accelerated by Philips Whitespeed Blue LED Lamp.  The intensity of the lamp can be adjusted depending on desired results and risk of sensitivity.

The procedure is performed in 15-minutes sessions and up to 4 sessions can be completed.  Discuss the best option for you during your consultation with Dr. Jorgenson.

Preparing for your Zoom! Teeth Whitening Appointment

Zoom! Teeth Whitening works by breaking down stains on the teeth.  This process can cause sensitivity that is often described as “zingers”. You’ll want to be sure to have a consultation with Dr. Jorgenson to ensure Zoom! is appropriate for you.

If you’re concerned about sensitivity, start prepping about two weeks prior to your appointment.  Use a toothpaste with potassium nitrate such as Sensodyne.  The toothpaste will help to temporarily block pain signals triggered by the bleaching gel.

You can also take up to 800mg of ibuprofen about one hour prior to your appointment.

Because the process is designed to remove stains from the enamel, plaque and tarter should be removed prior to the procedure.  If teeth are covered by plaque and tartar, the whitening gel must fight through this hard substances before getting to the enamel.  Therefore, you’ll want to make sure teeth are clean.

We highly recommend a dental exam and cleaning to remove plaque and tartar for best results.  You can schedule your dental cleaning at our Costa Mesa dental office anytime by calling (714) 424-9099 or visit us at www.mycostamesadentist.com.

Caring for your Smile after Zoom! Teeth Whitening

After you achieve amazing results, you’ll want to be sure to avoid tooth-staining foods, drinks, and lifestyle choices to maintain that dazzling smile.  Items to avoid:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red Wine
  • Foods with color additives
  • Tomato-based products
  • Tobacco

If sensitivity persists, apply your Relief ACP gel to relieve sensitivity and to help remineralize the teeth.

More importantly, you can maintain excellent oral health by visiting your dentist as prescribed and keep up good at-home brushing and flossing habits.

Advanced Dental Care is a full-service dental office in Costa Mesa, CA conveniently located by the 405, 55, and 73.  For questions or to schedule an appointment, please call/text (714) 424-9099 or visit us online at .

Oral Cancer

April 13, 2018

Oral Cancer Facts

The Oral Cancer Foundation estimates approximately 132 patients are diagnosed with an oral cancer EVERY DAY!  That means over 51,550 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.  Early detection of neck, mouth, and throat cancers is critical to identify the appropriate treatment and reach the best outcomes.

The main causes of oral cancer are alcohol and tobacco use and human papilloma virus (HPV), specifically strain HPV16. You can reduce your risk of getting oral cancer by avoiding excessive alcohol intake, avoiding tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, vaping, chew, snuff, pipes, dip, etc.) completely, and by reducing direct skin/mouth contact with another person with HPV.

Survival Rates

Oral cancer has lower survival rates than cervical cancer, thyroid cancer, and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  Survival rates have not increased in over a decade.  When detected in early stages, there is a 70-80% survival rate.  However, when detected in later stages, the survival rate is less than 50% after 5 years.  Most oral and neck cancers are not detected in the early stages, because of lack of patient awareness and the overall difficulty of detecting these types of cancers.  This is why it is critical to visit your dentist every 3-6 months for your professional exam or any time you detect something unusual.

Oral Cancer Self Exam

The Oral Cancer Foundation has put together this instructional video so you can perform your own at-home exam between dental visits or if you notice something unusual.

Schedule your free oral cancer screening with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson today!  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions 24/7.  You can reach our Costa Mesa dental office by phone at (714) 424-9099 or book online anytime at www.mycostamesadentist.com.
