Teeth whitening

You can always note the difference between natural shiny and white teeth to discolored teeth. If you are looking for a beautiful smile, teeth whitening is among the must-do. It involves using a bleaching agent to whiten your teeth a shade brighter.

Usually, our natural teeth color may not last due to various issues, including age and lifestyle habits such as:

·         Smoking

·         Coffee

·         Red wine

·         Certain medications

·          Fruit juices

·         Tea

·         Tomato products

·         Fruit juices

·         Colas

·         Smoking

·         Popsicles

Sometimes you cannot escape tooth discoloring despite maintaining routine oral hygiene habits. To maintain that magical smile, you may need to schedule regular teeth whitening sessions at Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates.

Dental cleaning

Even with regular teeth brushing and flossing, you may remain with some food deposits and particles in between your teeth. With time the deposits may form tartar and plaque build-up, putting your teeth at risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Professional teeth cleaning involves your provider using dental tools to offer a thorough dental cleaning. They remove the tartar and plaque, clean your tooth with professional dental tools, floss, and apply a fluoride treatment.

Dental cleanings are essential twice a year. They lower your risk of cavities, among other oral health conditions, and promote your teeth function.


Most of the time is when your dental provider prevents your teeth extraction. But there are cases where extraction is the only way out or will benefit your oral health.

You may have a tooth extraction for the following reasons:

·         Teeth crowding

·         Infection

·         Extreme teeth damage

·         Tooth misalignment

·         Impacted wisdom teeth

·         Misshapen baby teeth

The providers at Charles M. MD are aware that most people fear tooth extraction. They offer sedation dentistry or local anesthesia to ensure their patients are comfortable and scared during the extraction procedure.

Cosmetic dentistry

A big part of your oral health involves cosmetic dentistry, which includes dental treatments to improve and better your smile. It includes various dental cosmetic procedures to correct and enhance the size, shape, and color of your teeth.

You may need cosmetic dentistry if you have the following issues.

·         Crooked teeth

·         Irregular gum lines

·         Yellow teeth

·         Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth

·         Coffee, tea, tobacco stains

·         Gaps between teeth

Some of the common cosmetic dentistry treatments include:

·         Dental implants

·         Crowns and veneers

·         Bonding

·         Teeth whitening

·         Orthodontics

·         Invisalign

·         Bridges

·         Smile makeover
