When do children usually lose heir baby teeth?

May 12th, 2017

Many parents worry that their children's teeth are not falling out on time.  A lot of concerned parents want to know: When will my child lose his or her first baby tooth? At what age should the last tooth fall out?  Is there a specific order in which the teeth are lost?

A child's 20 baby teeth typically come in by age three and begin to loosen and fall out on their own to make room for permanent teeth, which usually appear by the time your child is six.  It is important to know that timing may vary, and girls typically lose their baby teeth earlier than boys.  The last baby teeth will likely fall out by the time your child is 13.

Baby teeth tend to fall out in the order in which they came, which means the lower center incisors are usually the first to go when your child is between six and seven years old.  The next teeth your child will lose are his or her top center pair, also called the upper central incisors.

The Benefits of Veneers

June 30th, 2016

Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, with little to no prep work, and a beautiful, natural-looking finish.  Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, hand-crafted, translucent ceramic shells that fit over the visible surfaces of your teeth.  Their wide array of benefits bring with them immeasurable value.  Benefits include:

Whiter Smile - Because they cover your natural teeth, you may choose the shade that fits your goals, for a whiter, brighter smile.

Improved Teeth Shape-  Because veneers fit over your teeth, you can camouflage your natural tooth shape.  You can also choose a tooth shape and length that better complements your facial features.

Natural Finish- Because they are ultra-thin and custom-fitted they will look like natural teeth in any light. They offer the durability and stain-resistance for a smile that lasts.

More Uniform Smile - Mild misalignment and spaces can cause an even greater disturbance of your smile. Veneers can correct these problems, giving you the straight smile you desire.
