When it comes to body language, your smile says it all. But does it convey the message that you’re hoping for? Countless studies have shown that an attractive smile helps you come across as more intelligent, attractive and confident. Of course, those are just the qualities that we all hope to present, whether at a job interview, first date or a high school reunion! But if you feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your pearly-whites, your personality won’t be able to shine the way you’d like it to. Thankfully, your dentist in Medina has some great solutions that can give you a smile you feel good about!

Tooth discoloration is a common complaint as the years pass. While it is unavoidable due to the aging process, several factors can influence the severity of the changes, such as poor oral hygiene, smoking, and the foods and drinks you consume. Although it may feel like you have no choice but to live with the changes, you can restore your smile with your Median dentist.

Dental fillings are a common restorative procedure for fixing a cavity in the tooth enamel. A cavity is the hole that is formed by tooth decay, which is caused by the acids and bacteria in what you eat and drink.
So maybe you already knew all that — but why does tooth decay happen? What are fillings made out of, exactly? And what is the process for getting a dental filling? Don’t go anywhere, because we dig deep into dental fillings (sorry for the pun) in this week’s blog post.

Dental implant supported tooth replacement has changed the way we restore smiles following the loss of any number of teeth. From a single tooth to a full arch of teeth, we can replace any number of teeth, roots and crowns, with natural looking, feeling, and functioning dental implant posts that mimic the root structures of lost teeth. There have been numerous technological advancements in dental care over the past decades, but none matches the innovative dental implant. If you’re missing one or more teeth and you’d like to find out more about implant supported tooth replacement, please don’t hesitate to contact the Medina dental practice of Allan J. Milewski, DDS.

Today is Kim’s last day in our practice. We are bidding her farewell as she moves from Medina to join her husband Scott in southern Ohio. Kim is leaving the dental profession and becoming a farrier, a horse shoer! If you know anyone in southeastern Ohio who has a horse needing shoes, Kim is your person. Even though it is hard to say goodbye, we are so thrilled for her as she begins this new chapter in her life.
We know our patients will miss her too….but do not despair! We have hired a new hygienist, Cari, that we are confident you will love as much as Kim. Stay tuned to our blog as we introduce Cari to our practice!
We wish you the absolute best of everything Kim! Thank you for seventeen great years!
