How Can We Help

I’m Embarrassed to Smile

If one of your friends says something funny, you want to throw your head back and laugh out loud. When you see a loved one for the first time in months or even years, you want to grin and welcome them with a big hug, right? Yellowed, stained, and/or misaligned teeth can make it hard for you to have the confidence to smile, even when you’re bursting with happiness.

How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help

Most of us just aren’t born with beautifully white, perfectly aligned teeth. In fact, a lot of the people you meet on the street who have gorgeous, pearly white smiles would have the same issues with their teeth that you do if it weren’t for cosmetic dentistry. They’ve taken advantage of amazing procedures like teeth whitening, Invisalign, veneers, and other treatments to give them the ideal smile to boost their confidence.

Teeth Whitening

Whether your teeth have gotten stained over the years due to drinking coffee and other dark beverages, eating staining foods, smoking, or your enamel is naturally not as white as you’d like, we can help you with teeth whitening in Concord at our office or in your home.

Depending on how white you want your teeth to be, we may recommend an in-office treatment, but you may not need this component. If not, you’ll just need to come in to have a set of custom dental trays made, and then we’ll provide you with a potent whitening gel to use with your trays. Treat your teeth for 30 minutes a day every evening for two weeks, and be amazed at the difference!

Fixing Alignment and Gaps

But what if your problem with your smile isn’t the color? What if you’re embarrassed that your smile is crooked or gapped? Whether you never got braces when you were younger or your teeth have since shifted back to their old, crooked positions, you’re probably not looking forward to a mouthful of metal, right?

Well, you don’t have to put up with braces. You can opt, instead, for Invisalign, which works to align teeth through a series of custom-made, clear plastic trays that are virtually invisible and will align your teeth in just a few months.

If, on the other hand, your teeth aren’t misaligned but they are damaged or have gaps between them, we can fix this, too. Braces and Invisalign won’t fix a chipped tooth or a gap, but veneers will!

Self-consciousness about your smile can really put a damper on your mood, and it can make others think that you aren’t interested in seeing them or in what they have to say. With our teeth whitening services, you could have a sparkling, bright, gorgeous smile again in no time! And if you need other cosmetic dental issues addressed, like a gummy smile or misaligned teeth, we can take care of those, too. Don’t be afraid to smile; visit Dr. Hlavac, DDS in Concord today!

I Need a Dentist to Keep Me Healthy

Need a great dentist in Concord who can help you maintain the best possible oral health and hygiene? You’ve come to the right place. Dr. Hlavac and all of our staff members are passionate about keeping your mouth healthy, happy, and gorgeous.

Improving Your Overall Health With Preventative Dentistry

Preventative dental care is absolutely the best way to improve and maintain your dental and oral health, and it can help your overall health, too. After all, did you know that the plaque on your teeth is associated with the plaque that clogs your arteries? That same plaque can break off and travel through your system, sticking to your arteries on the way to your heart and causing major problems.

Even if you’re not at risk for heart disease, though, when plaque is left in place for more than three days it hardens into calculus (also known as tartar). If cleaned away on a regular dental cleaning and checkup, you shouldn’t have much to worry about the occasional calculus buildup. However, if you leave it long enough, it will begin to eat away at the bone mass of your teeth, causing them to loosen in their sockets and making tooth loss a very real possibility.

Preventing Tooth Decay and Loss

With regular dental cleanings and exams, you can prevent a whole host of health issues, not the least of which are dental decay and gingivitis. A good dentist can keep your teeth shiny, white, and beautiful, but that’s really not all. We can help you keep your mouth healthy and diminish your chances of developing heart disease, too.

Education for Better Dental Hygiene Between Visits

In addition to all that we can do for you in our office, we can also give you tips and recommendations for the best toothbrush and toothpaste for your dental hygiene needs. We can also instruct you on better brushing and flossing techniques, as well as other methods and suggestions for keeping your teeth extra clean between visits to see Dr. Hlavac.

At Robert I. Hlavac, Dental Corporation, we focus on giving you the very best in all types of preventative care you’ll find in or around Concord, including dietary counseling and oral hygiene education. When you leave our office, you’ll have a beautifully clean and healthy smile, and you’ll have all the tools you need to keep it bright and shining with our help.

Begin your transformation to a healthy smile today! Simply call us at (925) 689-1772 or fill out our online contact form to ask questions or make that first appointment. We can’t wait to see you very soon!
