Get Answers to Your Newburgh Dental Questions

Everyone has questions when it comes to their dental care, but we try to answer some of them before you ever get to the office. Check out the Newburgh dental questions on this page, and see if your answer is already here.

Is it normal for my gums to bleed after brushing?

The only reason your gums should bleed after brushing is if you are doing something wrong. There is nothing normal about your gums bleeding from a simple brushing. Bleeding gums is a symptom of gingivitis, the precursor to periodontal disease, or gum disease. Dr. Petrosino can help you if you have gingivitis or advanced gum disease. Scaling and root planing can help rid your gums of the disease-causing bacteria and spur new gum growth in the affected area.

What is a full-mouth reconstruction?

We’re often asked about full-mouth reconstructions at Smile Design Dental. Usually, patients assume it’s one specific treatment. But that’s not the case. A full-mouth reconstruction is actually a series of treatments combined to meet your individual dental needs. It’s a treatment plan designed to minimize cost and appointments while maximizing your oral health after wide-ranging dental problems like gum disease, tooth loss, and more.

What is the best way for me to whiten my teeth?

A professional teeth whitening treatment is a fast and affordable way to whiten teeth. We use products from KöR, which are designed to address especially tough stains. For a longer-lasting solution, you can cover stains with a bonding treatment or dental veneers. A bonding treatment typically lasts up to five years, while veneers should last at least 10 years.
