The Dexis system provides dentists with choices among various state-of-the-art sensors and comes with intuitive, easy-to-use imaging software.

Digital x-rays offer several advantages to patients. Gone are the days of waiting for X-rays to be developed. The cosmetic dentists can view the X-ray images instantly and review them with patients on the computer screen right away. Patients spend more time discussing their teeth with the dentist and less time waiting for the x-rays to be ready. Viewing digital x-rays with our Miami dentists and Fort Lauderdale dentists also means patients will have a better understanding of their dental needs and will be able to make informed decisions about their treatment.

Dexis digital x-rays are more environmentally friendly and expose patients to less radiation than other systems. The system is ergonomically designed to maximize patient comfort. The Dexis patented WiseAngle Cable Exit makes procedures more comfortable for patients and provides cable flexibil¬ity to reduce stress on the equipment and increase its reliability.

“The Dexis system is a very affordable and effective x-ray option,” says Nottingham, a South Florida cosmetic dentist “It gives me very precise and clear images, allowing me to make accurate diagnoses. It’s cost effective and it saves me time, which also lowers my costs. I’m able to pass those savings on to my patients in the form of lower charges.”

South Florida Dentist Warns about Holiday Foods

When most people think of foods that can harm your teeth, they think of candy. “However, there are a lot of other foods to avoid,” says Dr. Charles Nottingham, a cosmetic dentist at Smile South Florida. “Unfortunately, many of them are popular during the holidays.”

Sugar: Sugar, of course, is the #1 culprit in causing cavities. The worst offenders are sticky foods like lollipops, hard candies, and gum drops. They give you a double whammy. Not only are they high in sugar, but they also stick to your teeth for a long time after you eat. Surprisingly chocolate is less like to be a culprit because it binds with fat molecules and doesn’t stick to teeth as well as other candies. If you do eat a lot of sugary foods, try to do so at mealtimes when increased saliva can wash sugar off teeth.

Starches: “Bread and potatoes are very popular parts of traditional holiday meals,” points out Dr. Nottingham. “But, the refined flour in white bread and the starch in potatoes are essentially sugars and so will affect your teeth the same way refined sugar does. So cut back on those rolls, mashed potatoes, holiday cookies, and potato chips.”

Alcohol: An occasional drink at a holiday party is okay. But excess alcohol wears away tooth enamel, discoloring teeth and making them vulnerable to cavities.

The good news is there are a lot of foods that are healthy for your teeth as well. “In general most fruits and vegetables help strengthen your teeth – as do a lot of foods containing protein,” says Dr. Nottingham.

Fruits and Vegetables: Any fruit or veggie with a lot of fiber will help out. Onions, celery, kiwis, parsley, and apples are all singled out by experts as being particularly good for your teeth. So look for holiday recipes that include these foods.

Dairy Products: In general cheese, yogurt, milk, and other dairy products (without added sugar), are good choices for the teeth. They help generate saliva which washes sugars off the teeth and they contain calcium, which strengthens them.

Dental Facelift Offered At Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry

At Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry, our top cosmetic dentists look at the whole picture when it comes to cosmetic and restorative dental work.

As we age, our teeth wear down and our faces appear more short. The cheeks also become sunken in and there is a collapse of the dental arches. This creates the appearance of more defined lines around the mouth and lower face, as well as an aging effect due to discoloration and reduced quality of the dental aesthetics. This is why Smile South Florida performs a dental restorative facelift.

dental facelift is the use of cosmetic dentistry to create the effect of a traditional facelift, without intrusive plastic surgery.

dental facelift can take years off of the face by restoring the fullness of the face lost over time. It can have a significant impact on not just the look of the patients face, but also on the function by having proper tooth, bite, and jaw alignment.

As we reach middle age, the dental arches, especially on the lower teeth, have a tendency to collapse inward given a sunken in look to the jaw. Widening the smile is one important method to help in giving back the fullness of the cheeks. We take into consideration replacing lost tooth structure and improving the height of the teeth. The teeth also start to become chipped, worncrooked, discolored, and can even fall out/be missing. This also presents severe aging effect to the mouth, and especially the entire face.

Here are some of the dramatic results that can be achieved through cosmetic and restorative dentistry at Smile South Florida:
