When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems.
In most cases, the natural colour of teeth is within a range of light greyish-yellow shades. Teeth naturally darken with age and their appearance can be affected by the accumulation of surface stains acquired from the use of tobacco products and the consumption of certain foods or drinks.
When you go for a dental exam, your dentist checks your fillings and may suggest that you replace any loose or broken ones. Your dentist also looks for signs of decay, such as brown or black spots and may want to use X-rays to take a closer look at problem spots.
Dental treatments like dental bonding and veneers are not only used to fix cavities or broken teeth but can also be used to improve the look of healthy teeth. Veneers are applied to the entire front surface of the tooth, whereas bonding is applied to a smaller portion of the tooth.

I walked into Dr. Tatra's office with an abscess, no appointment, they saw me right away. I went back a few weeks later , and Dr. Tatra extracted two teeth for me. It is now 10 hours later, and no pain. The whole procedure was very reassuring. I went into the appointment visibly shaking hoping no one would notice. I have not had a lot of luck with Dentists as far as pain levels. The pain level was so well managed, it was insignificant. Thank you, Dr. Tatra! Looking forward to my next visit!
