You can't. READ MORE
Good question. You must keep in mind that beneath the gum is the bone supporting the tooth. If you lost enough gum you would be endangering the longevity of your tooth staying in your mouth. This though is a rare occurrence. There are 2 types of gum tissue-attached and unattached (alveolar mucosa.)As long as you have enough attached, you should be fine. READ MORE
Our patients have no difficulty speaking clearly with Invisalign. READ MORE
Our experience over the last 40 plus years is that crowns on front teeth oftentimes last a lifetime, i.e. more than 30,40 years and beyond. I personally have front crowns that were placed 40 years ago. Obviously just as a natural tooth can break, a crown could also break. The porcelain used on esthetic crowns is vey durable. READ MORE
A cavity, i.e a 'hole 'in a tooth if there isn't an active decay process, does not have to be filled immediately. READ MORE

Usually not. Conventional orthodontics or Invisalign can oftentimes correct an overbite if in fact it needs to be 'corrected.' READ MORE
Tooth brush in coordination with dental floss. READ MORE
Several possibilities. Some are: 1. The pontic (missing tooth replacement) is pressing against the gum (edentulous area) 2.The abutment teeth (teeth supporting the bridge) can be infected, i.e., needing a root canal READ MORE
