If you are looking for a more permanent option, you should consider a porcelain veneer or crown. The advantage to this is the durability - whereas a filling will need to be replaced every few years, a crown/veneer can last 25 years or more. You will pay for this benefit, though; a veneer or crown can cost $800 or more. READ MORE
Short answer? No. But it does have its uses. There is nothing better than the actual mechanical removal of plaque by flossing, and water-piks and other devices just do not have the ability to remove all of that material. They do have some useful applications, however; most notably as you mentioned, with braces or other appliances in place where the physical removal of plaque is compromised. They are also useful in delivering medication such as Listerine or prescription mouthrinses to the gum tissue. So while actual flossing is the best, a water-pik is better than nothing at all.

Baking soda can provide very limited whitening of surface stains on your teeth. This effect can be somewhat improved when mixed with hydrogen peroxide to form a paste to apply to the teeth, but this should only be used for a few days at a time. The risk of doing this is that baking soda can be abrasive to the enamel on your teeth. You will achieve more whitening effect (and in a safer manner to your teeth) from an over-the-counter product such as Crest whitening strips or Rembrant whitening trays. In addition, there are other options for whitening available in a dental office, such as Zoom or Kor. I would suggest visiting your local dental office to discuss these options. READ MORE
The first question I would ask you is "when is the last time you had your teeth cleaned at a dentist's office"? The most common cause for bleeding gums is the accumulation of plaque and tartar above or below the gums. These materials harbor bacteria, which have harmful effects to the gums. The good news is that a thorough, deep cleaning can remove these irritants and restore the gums to a healthy state. It is possible that there may be another cause as well, such as trauma or a systemic health issue, but these are much more rare. I would recommend visiting your local dentist's office for an evaluation of the root cause. Best of luck. READ MORE
