We all have a lot of questions about our dental health from gum treatments to dental crowns and sometimes we feel a little intimidated to ask our local dentist about it. Well, all your doubts are about to be over because we will answer some of your questions right here and right now. Read on, learn the concepts and go confidently to your next dentist appointment.

Which is the best braces method in the market today?

Using brackets to fix the alignment of our teeth is something that many people go through in their lives. If you’ve been there, you know how drastically your looks change once the treatment ends. Invisalign is a revolutionary concept in this matter that will not ruin your teeth whitening or dental crowns if you have any. Forget about metal braces and having food stuck in them every time you eat; Invisalign is a non-invasive dental-correction revolution. Just pop in a tailor-made only for you clear aligners (designed with X-rays) every two weeks and let them do the magic.

Do teeth whitening treatments hurt?

Teeth whitening is one of the most common processes that Dentists perform on patients. For this whitening process to take place, all your gum tissue will be covered with a protective gel or rubber. This step prevents gums to be hurt by the laser and peroxide used by the dentist. Because of this extra precaution that serious dentists like Dr. Dalal use, you won’t feel pain in the hour that the process takes. Talk to your dentist before you start any whitening treatment as Dental Fillings and Gum Treatments may not benefit from it.

Can I reshape a disfigured tooth?

The answer to this question is yes. Dr. Dalal provides a Dental Fillings treatment called White Filling in which a plastic and glass mixture replaces the missing part. This tooth-colored mix is very resistant to wear and discoloring, so you can enjoy your newly-shaped tooth for a long time.

How often should I get my teeth cleaning done?

Everyone’s mouth is different. Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums your dentist will tell you exactly when to do it. For most people it is around six months, what is equal to doing it twice a year. Keeping your teeth professionally clean can help you avoid any more severe treatments later.


It is important that you ask your dentist all your doubts and get a clear idea of what you’ll get in your mouth. Dentistry is a science that can perfectly explain everything to the patients. If you are in the Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, San Ramon or Danville area, don’t hesitate to give Dr. Dalal a call. She is a very respected professional that will evacuate your doubts and dental problems at once.
