When You’re Smiling, the Whole World Smiles With You

October 2, 2015

It’s World Smile Day and Dr. Milewski and Veronica are here bright and early helping a very special patient transform her smile!  There are a lot of great moments in dentistry, but one of the best is always giving someone the gift of a beautiful smile.  Smiling can literally change your life, we have seen it happen time and time again.  Here’s why.doc smiling for blog

We know that the very act of smiling releases  dopamine, endorphins and serotonin ,  neurotransmitters that literally make you feel good. These neurotransmitters relax you, and can lower the stress you are experiencing.  Endorphins have the extra benefit of acting as natures pain reliever, totally organic without any chemicals! Seratonin can lift your mood, serving as a natural anti depressant. And here’s the real interesting part…your brain can’t tell if your smile is real, or faked! You get the benefits of neurotransmitters either way, so exercise those smile muscles!

Smiling also makes you look more attractive, and more approachable. People are attracted to other people who are smiling.   And smiles are contagious.  Just try to frown around someone who has a genuine, beautiful smile on their face. Bet you can’t do it for long!

So celebrate World Smile day with Dr. Milewski and the rest of the team.!  Come in and see us to keep your smile healthy and bright.  And remember “When your smiling, the Whole World Smiles with you!”

 

 

Restore Bad Teeth at Medina Family Dentistry

June 17, 2015

HalitosisNo one wants to make a bad first impression. Your smile is one of the first things people see, and whether we like it or not, our appearance says a lot about us. A healthy, beautiful smile can raise your confidence, and change the way people see you. We all make split second evaluations of people we meet based on what we can see. If a future employer could look into your mind, why would she hire you? The best way to tell an employer he should hire you is to look the part, and a healthy smile is a great first step. Call our Medina, OH dental office to schedule an appointment or find out more about how our dedicated staff can help transform your smile.

Are Your Teeth Affecting Your Job?

A 2013 interview with several patients of a free dental health clinic provide by the California Dental Association to those without dental health access, associated lost or damaged teeth with an inability to get a job. Patty Kennedy, one of the women interviewed was missing three teeth, and reported wanting to work for a local grocery company but being repeatedly turned down. She believes this is due in part to her smile. Kennedy said, “If you want to portray someone as being wicked, they have missing front teeth. If they’re ignorant, they have buck teeth.” These snap judgments can drastically change the way that people view you on the job.

If you have missing, discolored, or damaged teeth and you struggle to get or keep a job, a visit to Medina Family Dentistry can help. Our comprehensive dental care offers a number of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments that will leave you with a brilliant smile that leaves a great impression when it comes to getting and keeping a great job.

Excellent Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Dr. Allan J. Milewski and the dedicated team at Medina Family Dentistry think that all dentistry should be considered cosmetic. From fillings to dentures, restoring your smile to its naturally beautiful appearance is our top priority. When preventive dentistry measures fail, restorative dentistry seeks to return teeth to their original state, and cosmetic dentistry is intended to improve the esthetic of existing teeth. Our dental services seek to preserve and restore your bite’s natural shape and function while improving the appearance of your smile.

Restorative dentistry can be any number of dental treatments from fillings to root canals. Our practice strives to make your restoration as beautiful as your original tooth by going to extra mile to provide cosmetic restoration. We offer tooth colored resin fillings that blend seamlessly with the existing tooth and the stronger bond offered allows us to retain more of your natural tooth than traditional amalgam fillings. All-porcelain crowns are another way we provide esthetic restoration. Unlike metal and metal porcelain amalgam crowns, all-porcelain crowns look and feel more like natural teeth. We also provide dental implant treatment that includes all porcelain crowns to complete the restoration.

We also provide a wide-array of dental services that are more traditionally considered cosmetic. Our professional at-home teeth whitening is a convenient and effective way to immediately improve any smile. For those who have significant gaps, cracks, or missing teeth veneers, a thin layer of porcelain covering your teeth, can be a good option to transform your smile and protect your original teeth. Similarly, dental bonding uses a resin similar to our tooth colored fillings to cover, reshape, and restore dental irregularities. Recontouring your teeth changes the size or shape of your teeth, and can significantly improve your smile quickly and easily.

Full Smile Makeovers

If you’re ready to make a complete change, our custom created smile makeover might be right for you. Dr. Milewski will ensure that your bite is strong and healthy. Then, he’ll examine the current state of your teeth and create a step by step plan to give you a perfect smile. This may include any number of restorative and cosmetic treatments, but you will be able to choose the treatments, budget and time frame that work for you. When your makeover is completed, you may not even recognize your smile.

If you’ve been turned down for a job or a promotion because your smile is leaving the wrong impression, it’s time to make a change.

Create a Winning Smile with Porcelain Veneers from Dr. Milewski in Medina, OH

May 5, 2015

158554263When you’re really happy, do you smile from ear to ear? Or do you instinctively raise your hand to your mouth because you don’t want people to see your teeth? If the later describes you, then perhaps you should consider permanently hiding your smile. With porcelain veneers, you can conceal the smile that is making you unhappy and reveal a new smile that will tell the people around you that you really are happy. Dr. Allan J. Milewski has created beautiful smiles with porcelain veneers for many people in and around Medina, OH, and he can do the same for you.
There’s a long list of reasons why smiles can be less than optimally attractive:
• Stained or discolored teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening
• Chipped and cracked teeth
• Teeth that are somewhat misaligned
• Irregularly spaced teeth that have gaps in between them
• Teeth that are uneven because of grinding and clenching or normal wear and tear
Regardless of what is making you have a smile that you don’t like, with porcelain veneers you can have a smile that everyone will love.
Porcelain Veneers in Medina, OH
When you come to Dr. Milewski for your porcelain veneers, he will speak to you about the characteristics you want to incorporate in your smile. You can even bring pictures of people who have smiles you admire. In addition to your smile goals, Dr. Milewski will also consider the size of your mouth, the shape of your lips, your facial features and even your skin tone when designing your customized veneers.
Placing the veneers requires two appointments. At the first, Dr. Milewski will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. Then, we’ll take an impression of your teeth so our cosmetic dental lab can fabricate veneers that fit perfectly. At the second appointment, Dr. Milewski will adhesively bond the veneers and you’ll have a new smile that will make you and others happy.

All Brushes Are Not Created Equal

October 25, 2012

Recently, I visited Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.  One of the items on display was a toothbrush thought to be used by Jefferson himself.  Back in colonial days, toothbrushes were made by attaching hogs hair bristles to a bone handle with copper wire. Because of the cost of hogs hair bristles, it was not uncommon for all members of a family to share a toothbrush. Many people didn’t even use a toothbrush, but instead used a cloth to wipe their teeth!

Today we have so many choices for toothbrushes.  They come in a rainbow of colors, shapes and sizes.  Some are electric,  some are manual, some have long bristles, some have short bristles, some have Big Bird smiling up at you from one end and others have special handles for arthritic hands.  The question is which toothbrush is the right toothbrush for you?

Dr. Milewski recommends a soft bristle brush in a size and  shape that  fits your mouth comfortably, allowing you to reach all areas easily.  Many people like battery operated toothbrushes, which have the added benefit of a timer.  We find that many of our senior patients find a battery operated toothbrush because it is easier for them to use.

Whatever you chose, make sure to replace your toothbrush every three to four months. Bristles that become frayed and worn with use and will be less effective at cleaning teeth.  Keep your toothbrush stored in an upright position and allow it to air dry.

And remember…the most effective toothbrush is the one you use! So use it. At least twice a day!

Ever heard the old adage  “He’s looking long in the tooth”?  This phrase is sometimes used to describe older persons, whose  gum disease causes gums to recede and teeth to appear longer.  Years of smoking, or drinking coffee or red wine can cause teeth to look yellow and stained which can also make you look older than you are. We may not be able to turn back the clock, but we can change our smile to look younger and healthier.

I know we talk to you a lot about flossing, but statistics show that only 13% of the population actually flosses on a regular basis. And it is critically important to stopping periodontal disease from developing. Healthy gums make a healthier you.  And a younger looking you.smile-medina-family-dentistry-copy

Whitening your teeth is one of the easiest ways to take years off your smile. It used to be a celebrity bright smile was only seen on, well, celebrities, but now it is the hallmark of a youth, health and vitality.  Whitening your teeth is easy , and the results can be dramatic.
