Dental Fillings

Nearly all children have dental cavities at some point in time. Dental fillings are dental restorative materials used to restore teeth damaged by decay back to their normal shape and function. Composite resin or amalgam can be used to restore teeth that have been affected by decay.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are plastic coatings painted on the surfaces of teeth to prevent decay. Because of the likelihood of developing tooth decay in the grooves and depressions of the molars and premolars, kids and teenagers are candidates for dental sealants. In some cases, sealants may also be appropriate for baby teeth.

If you aren’t flossing every day, learn why you should be from your Cooper City, FL dentists serving Pembroke Pines.

We understand that there are some days that are so long that it can often feel like a chore to get ready for bed. All you want to do is flossingsnuggle up under the covers and fall fast asleep. But not so fast! Your smile needs a little TLC before you hit the hay. While brushing may come as second nature to you, perhaps you don’t often floss every day like you should, but our Cooper City, FL dentists serving Pembroke Pines are here to tell you why you should floss every day.

Regardless of whether you use regular dental floss or a floss pick, there is a reason you should be flossing your teeth every day. Since your toothbrush can’t get into tight spaces or spaces between teeth, you will need to floss in order to remove food and plaque from between teeth. Just brushing your teeth isn’t enough to give your smile a thorough clean. By flossing in between your teeth at least once a day you can help dislodge and remove plaque before it turns to tartar.

When should I floss my teeth?

While the most important thing is that you floss your teeth every day, there are some flossing habits that may make your flossing more effective. Whenever you can devote enough time to flossing your teeth is probably the best time to do it. Some people find it easier to floss before heading to work while other people enjoy having a superbly clean mouth prior to going to bed. The choice is yours.

Of course, flossing your teeth before you brush may actually lead to a cleaner smile. How? Since floss helps to remove plaque and food from between teeth it makes it easier for the toothpaste to then get between teeth and offer a better clean than if plaque and food were still left behind.

And don’t forget that kids also should floss. The minute two teeth erupt next to each other your little one should start a flossing regimen. In the beginning you will need to floss their teeth for them and show them how it’s done. As you child gets older they can start flossing their teeth on their own (usually around 10 years old).

Miracle Dental Center in Cooper City, FL and serving Pembroke Pines is dedicated to helping patients maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. From cosmetic and restorative dentistry to preventive care, we offer it all in one convenient location so that you always have dental services you know and trust.

Veneers are a cosmetic dental solution that has steadily increased in popularity. Many of our patients at Miracle Dental Center in Cooperveneers City, Florida who seek cosmetic improvement for their teeth have inquired about veneers. Our skilled dentists - Dr. May Yazji-Corey and Dr. Dora Rodriguez - have answered a few of the questions they often hear from these patients who are considering veneers. If you're one of them, read on.

How can veneers help me?

Take a look in the mirror. What is it about your teeth that you'd like to fix? Regardless of your answer - the shape, size, color or alignment - veneers are the perfect solution to just about any dental flaw. They work by covering the problems with a natural-looking porcelain segment that is attached to your teeth using a bonding solution.

How are veneers made?

It's hard to find anything that is custom-fit just for you. Shoes, clothes, hats - almost everything you wear comes ready-made to fit everyone. Veneers from your Cooper City dentist, however, are made to your exact specifications. From the color to the size, everything is carefully measured and chosen by your dentist at Miracle Dental Center. Each veneer is milled from porcelain in a dental laboratory using precision equipment, then carefully smoothed, polished and tinted. The result is a wafer-thin section of porcelain - about half the width of a dime - that perfectly fits over each corresponding tooth.

How are veneers attached?

Your Cooper City dentist prepares your natural teeth for veneer placement by filing away of some of their enamel. This ensures a solid attachment and comfortable fit. The bonding cement used to attach the veneers is durable and can last as long as twenty years.

Ready to make the decision toward a better smile? Your first step is to contact Miracle Dental Center in Cooper City, FL. Our staff will be glad to set up a consultation about veneers for you!

Do you need to replace a missing tooth but aren't sure if a dental implant is the best option? Dr. May Yazji-Corey, Dr. Dora Rodriguez, Dr. dental implantsGeorge Nicolas and Dr. Steven Kaltman, your Cooper City, FL dentists at Miracle Dental Center, explain how you can benefit from implants.

Dental implants help boost your self-esteem

Looking in the mirror after you've lost a tooth can be depressing. In fact, you may feel so self-conscious about the gap in your teeth that you may even stop smiling. Dental implants restore your smile and help you feel more confident in social and business settings.

Implants keep your jawbone strong

Your teeth exert constant pressure on your jawbone, which helps keep it strong and healthy. After you lose a tooth, the section of the bone underneath no longer receives any stimulation and eventually begins to shrink and weaken. Over time, this can lead to facial sagging and the loss of further teeth. Because dental implants replace your tooth roots, they provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to remain strong. Once your new dental implant bonds to your jawbone, your Cooper City dentist places a crown, or artificial tooth, on top of it to replace your tooth above the gum line.

Implants restore normal biting and chewing

You may be surprised just how difficult it is to bite and chew after you lose a tooth. Dental implants restore your ability to easily eat any type of food, even very hard foods. Since the crown is securely anchored to your implant, your new tooth won't move when you take a bite of steak.

A dental implant may be the best choice for your wallet

Dental implants can be more expensive when you compare the cost to that of dentures or bridges, but it's important to look at the lifetime costs of each tooth replacement option. You'll need to replace dentures or bridges several times during your life, while your implant will probably last the rest of your life.

Interested in learning more about dental implants. Call Drs. Yazji-Corey, Rodriguez, Nicolas and Kaltman, your Cooper City, FL dentists at Miracle Dental Center, to schedule an appointment. Restore your smile with implants!
