Advanced Dentistry in Burlington WA

Advanced Dentistry in Mount Vernon The world of dentistry continues to advance at a rapid pace. If you have visited a Burlington WA dentist in the past few years, you have probably noticed the things that make your visit more comfortable, such as the ability to watch TV or listen to music while receiving treatment. Many Burlington dentistry patients welcome oral sedation dentistry to reduce or eliminate pain.

What may not be as obvious are the advances in techniques, tools and materials. Top Burlington dentists now use digital computer imaging which is safer than traditional x-rays. Dental technicians can store, retrieve and transmit digital images much easier than was possible with traditional x-ray film.

The use of lasers has also changed the face of dentistry. Laser surgery requires less anesthesia, minimizes swelling, and protects surrounding tissue. Burlington general dentists use lasers for detecting and treating cavities and dental technicians use them for the curing of restorative materials.

Another exciting development in cosmetic dentistry is the CAD-CAM technology that allows Burlington WA cosmetic dentists to perform restorations in a single visit. The types of procedures that can be completed in one visit include crowns, fillings, inlays, onlays and dental veneers.

If you need a thorough exam or want to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, call Gentle Dentistry at 360-424-1990 to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, you can see before and after photos of some of our smile makeover clients. We would love to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted, and we have the tools, experience and technology to make that happen.

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Mount Vernon Sedation Dentist Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Mount Vernon Sedation Dentist Can Help If you live near Mount Vernon and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation dentistry is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in Mount Vernon at Gentle Dentistry. We have been providing sedation dentistry in Mount Vernon with excellent outcomes. Whether it is called sedation dentistry, oral sedation dentistry or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for our nervous cosmetic and restorative dentistry clients in the Mount Vernon area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral sedation dentistry, Mount Vernon dentistry patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for our Mount Vernon patients, and oral sedation dentistry can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivita;
  • Fear of needles;
  • A powerful gag reflex;
  • Difficulty controlling body movement;
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits;
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling; such as a root canal, dental implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction; call Gentle Dentistry at 360-424-1990. When you come to our office at 2100 E. Section St., Ste 101 in Mount Vernon, we can give you more information about sedation dentistry.

Sedation dentistry is only one of the services we offer at Gentle Dentistry, where your smile is our top priority!

Why Aren’t You Smiling?

Burlington Dentistry Hello, I’m Dr. Eunice Kim DDS. My dental practice is called Gentle Dentistry. We are located at 2100 E. Section St., Ste 101 in Mount Vernon (98274), and you can reach us by calling 360-424-1990.

You can probably imagine why I look at smiles everywhere I go in the Burlington area. Whether I am working with a Burlington dental patient, having dinner at a Mount Vernon restaurant, or attending a Everett sporting event, I notice whether the people around me smile. Whenever I encounter someone with obvious tooth problems, I want to tell them about the procedures that can completely transform their frown into a healthy and beautiful smile.

Are you one of those people who don’t want to show their teeth? I would love to talk to you about a smile makeover with porcelain veneers. Whatever your excuse is for not seeking dental treatment, I can discuss all of your concerns with you during a dental consultation.

Perhaps you are afraid of dental work. Have you ever considered oral sedation dentistry? With sedation dentistry, even extensive treatment is virtually pain free. Sedation will calm your mind as well as the nerves in your mouth.

Perhaps the cost of Burlington cosmetic dentistry is holding you back. My quality staff will be happy to talk to you about financing plans. It is important to remember that if your teeth are decayed, postponing treatment will cost more money in the long run. Filling a cavity is far more affordable dentistry than a root canal procedure or, in the case of an extracted tooth, a dental implant.

You can contact my office at 360-424-1990 or online at http://www.gentledentistrymtvernon.com/. My Burlington family dental website contains information about all the general, restorative and aesthetic services we provide.

I can transform your smile into one that you will want to show all the time!

Porcelain Veneers For Everett

Mount Vernon Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics If you have been paying attention to the Everett orthodontics scene in recent years, you probably know about invisible braces and speed braces. These new teeth straightening procedures have been welcomed by many people, especially Everett adults who want an alternative to traditional metal braces.

There’s more good news for Everett dentistry clients who want to straighten their teeth. How about ‘instant orthodontics’?

If you want immediate teeth straightening, you can smile sooner with porcelain veneers from Gentle Dentistry!

The key to achieving a celebrity smile may be porcelain veneers for your teeth from a Everett cosmetic dentist. Dr. Eunice Kim at Gentle Dentistry can help you determine if porcelain veneer dentistry is for you. Ongoing education is essential for elite cosmetic dentists who work to continually provide the latest procedures and materials for their cosmetic clients. We can help.

In addition to correcting tooth alignment, porcelain veneers are used to whiten teeth and restore chipped teeth in Burlington and Everett. Porcelain veneers are attached to the front of teeth and often require no removal of healthy tooth structure. Another advantage? They are less expensive than complete dental crown restorations but look just as natural. -Actually, they look far better than most natural teeth!

For a cosmetic dentistry consultation, call Gentle Dentistry at 360-424-1990. Porcelain veneers may be the best way for you to receive a smile makeover at a fraction of the cost.

Tooth Sensitivity Treatment in Mount Vernon

Tooth Sensitivity Treatment in Mount Vernon Have you ever been eating an ice cream cone in Mount Vernon when you felt a sudden jolt of pain in one of your teeth? If the enamel is eroded, or the gums have receded, the dentin layer of the tooth is exposed. The substances that cause tooth pain travel to the pulp where the nerves of the tooth are located. Ouch!

Tooth sensitivity can be a signal that something is wrong. It may be caused by periodontal disease or bacteria build-up in a crack in a tooth.

Enamel erosion can be caused by a number of factors including acidic foods and drinks, teeth grinding, or cracked teeth. If your teeth are sensitive following a professional teeth whitening such as the ones we do here at Gentle Dentistry, the sensitivity will probably be gone in a few weeks.

Surprisingly, one cause of gum recession for our Mount Vernon patients is brushing too hard. That’s right; it is possible to brush too hard!

If you experience constant or intermittent pain in your teeth or gums, call 360-424-1990 right away to make an appointment with your Mount Vernon WA dentist. Dr. Eunice Kim takes tooth pain seriously.

At Gentle Dentistry in Mount Vernon, we not only treat tooth sensitivity problems, we also perform entire smile makeovers for cosmetic dentistry patients in the Mount Vernon and Burlington areas. You’ll find us in the 98274 zip code area.

Let’s Talk About Your Smile

Let’s Talk About Your Smile I’m Dr. Eunice Kim of Gentle Dentistry. My office is located at 2100 E. Section St., Ste 101 in Mount Vernon. One of the best things about being a Mount Vernon WA area general and cosmetic dentist is interacting with my patients. During initial cosmetic dental consultations, I listen carefully to my patient’s short and long term dental goals.

I enjoy discussing options and developing effective treatment plans tailored specifically to each person. Some of my clients desire a total smile makeover. I explain in detail the treatments available including teeth whitening, dental veneers, crown restoration, and dental implants.

If a client is nervous about undergoing treatment, we discuss oral sedation dentistry. Oral conscious sedation, sometimes called oral sedation dentistry, is a great option for anxious patients. Dental visits do not have to be painful!

After the treatment has been completed, it is very gratifying for me to see my patient’s reaction to their new smile.

I never get tired of creating dramatic smile transformations for the best clients in Washington!

If you have been considering a smile makeover, let’s talk about your smile. Call Gentle Dentistry at 360-424-1990 to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation.

Your Everett General Dentist And Cleaning Your Teeth

Your Washington Dentist And Cleaning Your Teeth Washington is known for its beautiful smiles, and our local Everett community is no exception. Keeping your teeth clean is an important factor in maintaining your beautiful Everett smile. One of the benefits of regularly visiting your local Everett, Washington general dentist is a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing habits.

Our Everett dental hygienist helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing the condition of your teeth, and recommending improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits. Our Everett oral hygienist can also professionally clean and polish your teeth at your regular Everett dental check up. You should schedule a regular dental check up every six months.

I’m Dr. Eunice Kim and I work at Gentle Dentistry located in the state of Washington. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry services in the Everett, Washington community, including the surrounding areas of Mount Vernon and Burlington.

Cleaning your teeth in Washington is the simple task of removing plaque (a sticky deposit that gets left on teeth in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and aids in tooth decay). This is done by brushing regularly with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and flossing. Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth and results in cleaner, healthier teeth. A regular visit to your local Everett dental hygienist will help you stay on top of problems that can go unseen.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting your local Everett, Washington dentist at least once every 6 months for a regular dental check up and teeth cleaning. These regular visits to your Washington dentist potentially prevent the undetected development of problems that can occur from neglecting to clean your teeth.

To keep that beautiful Everett, Washington smile in good shape, come in for a dental check up and teeth cleaning.

Call Gentle Dentistry in Mount Vernon, Washington to make an appointment. You can reach us right now at 360-424-1990.  We also offer many cosmetic dentistry services such as dental veneers and teeth whitening.
