Contributed by DentalROI

Dental CleaningsRegular dental cleanings are an essential part of good oral hygiene. Besides keeping your teeth and gums healthy, a regular dental cleaning allows your dentist to get a look at what’s going on with your teeth so that issues like cavities or gingivitis can be treated early. At Green Tree Dental we recommend that patients do a dental visit at least every 6 months. By visiting your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning, you can keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape and also avoid developing major dental problems between visits.

Boise Dentist

Dental bonding at Green Tree Dental is a simple and straightforward cosmetic dental treatment that is also known as tooth bonding. This treatment involves the application of a composite resin to a tooth in order to improve the appearance of the teeth and to cover up unsightly imperfections. This composite material is the same as the material that’s used for dental fillings, and as such, dental bonding can sometimes also be referred to as a filling procedure. The process and results of getting dental bonding is similar to that of getting veneers, but dental bonding is much faster and offers more durable results over the long term!

Often, the choices can be confusing, but it may help to know that there are basically only two categories of teeth whitening options to choose from: professional, in-office bleaching or at-home products.
