Quick and Effective Whitening

 

 

Do you need a quick and effective way to whiten your teeth? Scheich Family Dentistry has been using Phillips QuickPro Zoom for a year and has seen great results. Phillips QuickPro Zoom is the first dual-layer whitening varnish technology, offering a noticeably whiter smile in just one in-office application. The 20% hydrogen peroxide whitening varnish is followed by an innovative sealer layer that dries in seconds and locks the hydrogen peroxide layer into place. The sealer layer keeps the whitening varnish from getting onto soft tissue, while the low volume formula leads to virtually no sensitivity. You leave the office after a 10-minute application and simply brush or wipe off the thin film 30 minutes later. It is highly affordable, increasing accessibility and creating brighter smiles for special moments everywhere. We can pair QuickPro with a take-home treatment to provide a quick-start to whitening, giving patients confidence boosting results in less time. It’s a fast, effective addition to a regular checkup, and for patients, the superior results can make all the difference. Please give us a call at 720-733-7799 to learn more about brightening your smile!

Keeping Your Toothbrush Clean

We often don’t think about brushing our teeth until we actually need to do so. That, however, can actually be harmful to your oral health. Your mouth has all sorts of oral bacteria in it, and keeping your mouth clean helps lessen the harmful bacteria that may cause tooth decay. The tools that you use to brush your teeth and maintain great oral health also need your attention!

We’ve compiled some “Dos” and “Don’ts” for keeping your toothbrush sterile and teeth healthy.

1. Don’t…

Share a Toothbrush.

It should be obvious that sharing a toothbrush is unsanitary, but it also has the potential to transfer harmful bacteria and systemic diseases from one person to another. If you share a toothbrush with someone who has a weak immune system, they will be more likely to get sick from it. You shouldn’t share a toothbrush with anyone – not even your family members.

Travel Without a Container.

Even when you’re in a rush, resist the urge to just throw your toothbrush in your bag. Also, don’t substitute an actual toothbrush cover with a paper towel or a piece of foil – it is not the same. Without a proper cover, your toothbrush can collect dust and germs easily. Do you really want to use it to clean your mouth if it’s dirty?

Keep Your Toothbrush Contained at All Times.

While it’s important to keep your toothbrush covered when you are traveling from one place to another, at home (or when you arrive at your destination) you need to store your toothbrush in the open. This will help it dry out after use, and prevent the growth of bacteria. Germs can grow fast in a small, moist space. Also, try letting it dry out in an upright position.

2. Do…

Replace Your Toothbrush.

About every 3 months or so, it’s a good habit to dispose of your current toothbrush and start using a new one. This is just a helpful thing to do regularly to avoid any oral health problems in the future. It goes for electric toothbrushes too – replace the head every few months. You should also replace your toothbrush if you notice signs of wear (bent bristles, etc.). A damaged toothbrush won’t be able to keep your teeth clean!

Wash Your Toothbrush/Toothpaste Holders.

How often do you wash that cup that sits on the counter by the sink? I bet you – like most people – don’t give it a second thought after placing your toothbrush in it for the day. But as you can imagine, those holders can get pretty nasty pretty quickly. Try to give it a good scrub at least once a month to prevent the spread of germs.

Provide Distance Between Your Toothbrush and Someone Else’s.

It’s a good rule of thumb to keep your toothbrush isolated away from other people’s personal hygiene products – especially their toothbrushes. It’s a great precautionary measure for keeping your toothbrush free from unwanted germs.

Clean Your Toothbrush.

You might find this odd, thinking, “Why would I clean it if I am going to throw it out in a few months?” But your toothbrush can easily collect bacteria in a matter of days – so cleaning it every so often is an easy option to keep it fresh. Options for cleaning your toothbrush include:

  • Rinsing It Before and After Use. You should do doing this regularly, but in case you aren’t – go ahead and start the habit now!
  • Soaking It in Antibacterial Mouthwash. Antibacterial mouthwashes can work as sanitizing agents for your toothbrush. Soak your brush in the mouthwash for a couple of hours every couple of weeks.
  • Using a UV Sanitizer. These sanitizers are becoming more and more popular. They use ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms on your toothbrush. Take a look at some of the best sanitizers on the market, here.

Without a clean toothbrush, you could have a lot worse things than cavities to worry about! Take our advice from the points above to keep your brush – and ultimately, your teeth – as clean and healthy as ever.


Cosmetic Dentistry


We recently completed another fun cosmetic case. This patient was congenitally missing her maxillary lateral incisors (the teeth next to the two front teeth). With the help of orthodontics, her canines were moved into this area in order to close the space. However because the teeth are canines, they have a more prominent appearance than what a lateral incisor has. To correct this, we placed porcelain veneers on each tooth to change the shape of them to look like lateral incisors.

The advancements in cosmetic dentistry has allowed us to provide very esthetic options for situations like this.


5280 Magazine 2017 Top Dentist List

Scheich Family Dentistry is thrilled to announce that Dr. Jeff Scheich and Dr. Stephanie Scheich were once again selected for the 5280 Magazine 2017 Top Dentists list.  This list of dentists is created from peer evaluations.  The 5280 Magazine asked thousands of dentists and specialists a personal question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer him or her to?”

The nomination pool consisted of all active dentists listed with the American Dental Association as well as the dental academies and societies, thus allowing virtually every dentist the opportunity to participate. Dentists are also given the opportunity to nominate other dentists who may have been missed that they feel should be included in the list.

Dentists and specialists were asked to consider years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and physical results. Respondents are asked to put aside any personal bias or political motivations and to use only their knowledge of the peer’s work when evaluating the nominees. Once responses were compiled, dentists were checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have an active license and are in good standing.

We are so honored to have once again been voted a Top Dentist in Colorado!

Dr. Jeff and Dr. Stephanie were also named a Top Dentist by 5280 Magazine in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

5 Things to Know About Getting a Brighter Smile

Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. Still, if you might feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. When the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry asked people what they’d most like to improve about their smile, the most common response was whiter teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists also found that nearly 90% of patients requested tooth whitening.

Thinking about teeth whitening? Get the facts first. Here are five of the most commonly asked questions about the process.

 

  1. Why Did My Teeth Change Color?

Over time, your teeth can go from white to not-so-bright for a number of reasons:

Food and Drink
Coffee, tea and red wine are some major staining culprits. What do they have in common? Intense color pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth (enamel).

Tobacco Use
Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark. Nicotine is colorless until it’s mixed with oxygen. Then, it turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.

Age
Below the hard, white outer shell of your teeth (enamel) is a softer area called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner with brushing and more of the yellowish dentin shows through.

Trauma
If you’ve been hit in the mouth, your tooth may change color because it reacts to an injury by laying down more dentin, which is a darker layer under the enamel.

Medications
Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications. Young children who are exposed to antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline when their teeth are forming (either in the womb or as a baby) may have discoloration of their adult teeth later in life. Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth.

 

  1. How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

 

  1. Does Whitening Work on All Teeth?

No, which is why it’s important to talk to your dentist before deciding to whiten your teeth, as whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellow teeth will probably bleach well, brown teeth may not respond as well and teeth with gray tones may not bleach at all. Whitening will not work on caps, veneerscrowns or fillings. It also won’t be effective if your tooth discoloration is caused by medications or a tooth injury.

 

  1. What Are My Whitening Options?

Talk to your dentist before starting. If you are a candidate, there are three ways to put the shine back in your smile:

Whitening Toothpastes
All toothpastes help remove surface stain through the action of mild abrasives that scrub the teeth.  Look for the ADA Seal for safe whitening toothpastes that have special chemical or polishing agents to provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Unlike bleaches, these types of ADA Accepted products do not change the color of teeth because they can only remove stains on the surface.

In-Office Bleaching
This procedure is called chairside bleaching and usually requires only one office visit. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth.
At-Home Bleaching
Peroxide-containing whiteners actually bleach the tooth enamel. They typically come in a gel and are placed in a tray that fits on your teeth. You may also use a whitening strip that sticks to your teeth. The concentration of the bleaching agent is lower than what your dentist would use in the office.

Read the ADA’s Statement on the Safety and Effectiveness of Tooth Whitening Products.

  1. Are There Any Side Effects from Teeth Whitening?

Some people who use teeth whiteners may experience tooth sensitivity. That happens when the peroxide in the whitener gets through the enamel to the soft layer of dentin and irritates the nerve of your tooth. In most cases the sensitivity is temporary. You can delay treatment, then try again.
Overuse of whiteners can also damage the tooth enamel or gums, so be sure to follow directions and talk to your dentist.

Dental Implants

 

One of the biggest advancements in dentistry in recent years has been the placement and restoration of dental implants. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. We recently completed a case where our patient had lost his right front tooth when he was a young kid. For years he had worn a retainer with a fake tooth in this area. However, now that he is grown, he wanted something that was “more permanent.” A dental implant was placed in the space where the tooth had been lost. A porcelain crown was then placed over the dental implant to replace the missing tooth.

Cosmetic dentistry has allowed us to replace a single, missing tooth with a very natural porcelain crown.


 

Cosmetic Dentistry

 We just finished another fun cosmetic dentistry makeover.  This patient had many upper and lower teeth that had numerous older fillings that were beginning to fail.  We placed esthetic, porcelain crowns on the upper and lower teeth. What a difference!!  These are always fun to see the improvement that can be accomplished with cosmetic dentistry.

Start the New Year with White Teeth

There are two types of molecules that trap color and stain into the teeth.  Over time, the color molecules collect on the surface of teeth and slowly penetrate into the teeth.  These molecules join together forming larger, darker molecules.  Young teeth have not accumulated as much debris so you can see teeth become extremely white, extremely fast.  On the other hand, older teeth are so densely packed with debris that they cannot absorb bleaching factors as effectively so the process may take longer.

Peroxide gels break down the staining as long as the gel is fresh and the bleaching trays fit correctly.  The gel must contact the tooth structure for a continuously extended period to see successful results.  The gels sustain whitening while strengthening enamel and helping to prevent cavities.  At Scheich Family Dentistry, we offer three whitening systems:

  • KoR Deep Bleaching: in-office and at home bleaching trays. This is most effective on tetracycline-stained teeth.
  • Opalescence: gel used with at-home bleaching trays. Wear times that range from 30 minutes to overnight with varying strengths (10, 15, 20, and 35%).
  • Phillips QuickPro Zoom: in-office 10-minute application and simply brush or wipe off the thin film 30 minutes later. We can pair QuickPro with a take-home treatment to provide a quick-start to whitening.

What is Dry Mouth?

Dry mouth means you don’t have enough saliva or spit, to keep your mouth moist. Everyone has a dry mouth once in a while, especially if you’re nervous, upset or under stress. But if you have a dry mouth all or most of the time, it can be uncomfortable and can lead to more serious health problems or indicate that a more serious medical condition may exist. That’s because saliva does more than just keep the mouth wet —it helps digest food, protects teeth from decay, prevents infection by controlling bacteria in the mouth, and makes it possible for you to chew and swallow.

There are several reasons that the glands that produce saliva, called the salivary glands, might not function properly. These include:

  • Side effects of some medications — over 400 medicines can cause dry mouth, including antihistamines, decongestants, painkillers, diuretics and medicines for high blood pressure and depression.
  • Disease — diseases that affect the salivary glands, such as diabetes, Hodgkin’s, Parkinson’s disease, HIV/AIDS and Sjogren’s syndrome, may lead to dry mouth.
  • Radiation therapy — the salivary glands can be damaged if your head or neck are exposed to radiation during cancer treatment. The loss of saliva can be total or partial, permanent or temporary.
  • Chemotherapy — drugs used to treat cancer can make saliva thicker, or “ropey,” causing your mouth to feel dry.
  • Menopause — changing hormone levels affect the salivary glands, often leaving menopausal and post-menopausal women with a persistent feeling of dry mouth.
  • Smoking — many pipes, cigar and heavy cigarette smokers experience dry mouth.

It’s Easy (and Smart) to Fix a Chipped Tooth

  • img_3221-smaller-image
  • img_3225

A chipped tooth makes an impression — but not necessarily a good one!

Case in point:  Jim Carrey’s dopey character Lloyd Christmas in the comic films “Dumb and Dumber” and its sequel. Lloyd’s chipped front tooth was a deliberate choice by the actor to make his character appear more “deranged” every time he opened his mouth.

chipped-tooth-500

Treatment for Aesthetics & Heath

Fortunately, it’s easy to repair this type of dental damage. Your dentist has several options at his or her disposal depending on the nature of the chip and whether you’ve been able to locate and save the otherwise undamaged missing piece.

It’s important for your oral health as well as your appearance to schedule a dental appointment for evaluation and treatment of chipped tooth. If dental pulp at the center of the tooth has been exposed, your tooth could become hypersensitive to temperature and pressure, causing recurring discomfort. The pulp could also become infected, resulting in a need for root canal treatment.

Bonding – Rejoin/Re-create Missing Piece

Dental cosmetic bonding is the quickest and lowest-cost option to repair a chip. (That’s how Jim Carey had his chipped tooth fixed in childhood; he had his dentist temporarily “unbond” it for the movie!) Bonding involves the application of a composite filling material that your dentist will color and shape to match the original tooth. Little to no removal of existing tooth surface is needed.

If you have preserved the chipped-off portion of a tooth and it is otherwise undamaged, your dentist can use bonding to seamlessly reattach it. Otherwise, depending on the extent of tooth loss, the bonding material can be used to replace the lost portion.

Apply a Veneer – Hide the Chip

A dental veneer can be used to hide smaller areas of missing tooth. This is a thin, custom-made shell placed on the front of the tooth to give it a new façade. Some removal of existing tooth surface may be necessary to fit a veneer so it is flush with the surfaces of surrounding intact teeth.

Get a Crown – Cover Everything

A crown may be the best choice if a relatively large portion of the tooth is missing. It fully encases the visible portion of the remaining tooth (also known as the crown) above the gum line and is shaped and sized to match the original. It can be made of all ceramic (optimal for highly visible areas) or porcelain fused to metal crowns. In both cases, the material will be colored to match your other teeth. Some of the existing tooth surfaces will be removed to allow the crown to fit over it.

Chipped-Tooth Prevention

Accidents happen, but there are steps you can take to substantially reduce the risk of ever experiencing a chipped tooth — for example, wear a dental bite guard while playing sports, don’t grind or clench your teeth, don’t crunch on ice chips or hard candies, and don’t use your teeth as a tool for opening things!

Miss Colorado United States

IMG_9256     13620252_10154142463011001_7098330934519538377_n

We would like to congratulate one of our patients, Shanel Perry, as she was crowned Miss Colorado United States 2016 this past May. We wish her luck as she competes for the Miss United States in Las Vegas on Aug 4th.

 

Shanel Perry was born in San Diego and raised in Colorado. She is 25 and a graduate of the University of Kentucky where she studied Broadcast Journalism. While in college, she stayed busy being a double athlete as a member of the varsity dance team and captain of the equestrian team. After college, Shanel moved back to her beloved state of Colorado where she now works as a National Sales Recruiter and teaches Pure Barre. In her spare time, she enjoys going to bible study, riding horses, volunteering, going to the movies and traveling as much as possible! Shanel’s platform is “Women Empowering Women” which she co-created with a friend over a year ago. It’s a community page on Facebook which has over 1,000 followers! It’s all about women thriving on empowerment, courage, love, success, and the ability to be vulnerable in strengthening the positive aspects of our daily lives. The reality is, we live in a very judgmental society, a world where bullying and inequality very much exist. We can go about our day ignoring the negativity that has taken over the world, or we can be the change we wish to see. Shanel also stands for multiple other platforms including raising awareness about the importance of mental health, putting a stop to a girl on girl bullying, speaking about eating disorders, being an advocate for suicide prevention, standing up for animals that have no voice and so much more. Shanel is beyond excited to be your Miss Colorado United States 2016 and wants you to remember to never give up on your dreams! “You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” –Jim Carrey


Cosmetic Dentistry

People choose esthetic dental procedures/surgery for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed bite or crooked teeth, treat an injury, or just improve their overall appearance.  Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore a beautiful smile.

For these and many other reasons, esthetic dentistry has become a vital and important part of the dental profession.

Common esthetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. They also can be used to change the overall shape of teeth—from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped.

Some of the more common procedures involve:

  • Bonding – A procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color.
  • Contouring and Reshaping – A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.
  • Veneers – A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth.
  • Whitening and Bleaching – As the term implies, whitening and bleaching, a rapidly increasing procedure, are used to make teeth whiter.

Which techniques should be used to improve your smile? A dental exam at Scheich Family Dentistry will take many factors into consideration, including your overall oral health.

2016 5280 Top Dentist

 

Scheich Family Dentistry is thrilled to announce that Dr. Jeff Scheich and Dr. Stephanie Scheich were once again selected for the 5280 Magazine 2016 Top Dentists list.  This list of dentists is created from peer evaluations.  The 5280 Magazine asked thousands of dentists and specialists a personal question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer him or her to?”

The nomination pool consisted of all active dentists listed with the American Dental Association as well as the dental academies and societies, thus allowing virtually every dentist the opportunity to participate. Dentists are also given the opportunity to nominate other dentists who may have been missed that they feel should be included in the list.

Dentists and specialists were asked to consider years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and physical results. Respondents are asked to put aside any personal bias or political motivations and to use only their knowledge of the peer’s work when evaluating the nominees. Once responses were compiled, dentists were checked against state dental boards for disciplinary actions to make sure they have an active license and are in good standing.

We are so honored to have once again been voted a Top Dentist in Colorado!

Dr. Jeff and Dr. Stephanie were also named a Top Dentist by 5280 Magazine in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
