Every year, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss from tooth decay, gingivitis, or facial injury. Originally, the restoration methods were dentures and bridges. While dentures and bridges are still great methods to replace missing teeth, there is another option that has become a preferable method for those who want to replace a tooth or a set of teeth: dental implants. Implants are durable, long lasting, and look natural with your other teeth. The Center for Advanced Dentistry offers a safe, comprehensive procedure to give you pristine, wonderful dental implants.
Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace your missing teeth. These are not temporary replacements and they do not require adhesives. Implants are permanent replacements that will last for years, with proper care. Our trained, talented doctors will examine your mouth, look at the problem area, and form a plan to craft the perfect dental implant for you. Instead of letting your self-esteem take a blow or suffer through other oral issues due to the missing tooth, our team can prepare a replacement that will make you proud to flash your smile everywhere you go.
Easy Procedure to Fix Your Smile
During your first appointment, our caring staff will attentively examine your mouth and walk you through the next steps in gaining a replacement. Afterward, we will sedate you with anesthesia so that we can surgically insert a biocompatible titanium post into your jawbone. You will then go through a healing period as the bone grows over and bonds with the post. After the post heals, you will return to our office. We will double-check everything to make sure the post is secure and everything has healed properly. If all is well and you do not require extra healing time, we will secure and bond the replacement tooth on the post. Then, you can walk out of our building with a complete, full smile across your face.

A brighter smile is well within reach. Good oral hygiene is important to maintain both an attractive smile and good general health. Poor oral hygiene, caused by skipping routine dental visits, can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems including: gum disease, infection, bone loss, and medical complications like heart disease, strokes, and other problems. Semi-annual dental checkups and dental cleanings will prevent these issues as well as improve the color and brightness of your smile. For the whitest possible smile, you should avoid tobacco use and brush your teeth after drinking acidic beverages like coffee, tea, soda, or wine. Follow these steps and then make your preventive checkup and dental cleaning appointment with Dr. Hornstein and his experienced team at The Center for Advanced Dentistry today. Dr. Hornstein is a trusted Beachwood Family Dentist, delivering quality dental care daily throughout Beachwood, Cleveland, Pepper Pike, Solon, Shaker Heights, and the surrounding Ohio communities.
A professional dental cleaning will keep decay and discoloration at bay. Dr. Hornstein can remove most tobacco, coffee, and tea stains. A dental cleaning will also freshen your breath. Recent studies show that over 85% of patients with chronic bad breath (halitosis) have a dental problem to blame. During your dental cleaning you can also expect Dr. Hornstein to:
- Remove plaque and tartar
- Floss between teeth
- Polish away surface stains
- Apply fluoride
- Apply Sealants (for children)
- Clean and adjust dentures or partial dentures (if applicable)
What if you want a whiter smile? Professional teeth whitening has never been easier. If you’re dreaming of a whiter smile, Dr. Hornstein can help. First, he will determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. If you are, Dr. Hornstein will administer the KöR Whitening system. This popular system has been shown to whiten teeth up to 16 shades brighter in a single session! The KöR Whitening system uses a powerful combination of at-home and in-office treatment to create the bright, dazzling new smile of your dreams.

The New Year is here! While everyone is busy making resolutions and heading to the gym, why not start out 2013 right with teeth whitening from the Center for Advanced Dentistry?
Teeth whitening is a great way to enhance the beauty of your teeth. Whiter teeth will help lend confidence to your smile.
We offer the BriteSmile teeth whitening system, which will brighten your teeth an average of nine shades, and offer both in-office and take home whitening solutions. Dr. Hornstein will apply a gentle teeth whitening gel and then use a special blue light to whiten your teeth. Come in on your lunch break and leave with whiter teeth!
We also offer a special “Whitening for Life” program. To participate, first you’ll have an in-office teeth whitening appointment where you’ll also receive custom teeth whitening trays and three syringes of whitening gel to use at home to help your beautiful white teeth last. If you come and visit us every six months for your regular dental cleaning appointment, you’ll receive two syringes of whitening gel free at each appointment.
Many of our patients find that teeth whitening leaves them looking younger and gives them an added boost of confidence. The New Year is a great time for fresh starts, so why not start it off with beautifully white teeth!

For patients who’ve kept their smiles hidden because of low self-confidence, Dr. Hornstein has two great options for restoring confidence—porcelain veneers and Lumineers. Both are made from thin shells of porcelain and are designed to match the shade and shape of your smile. The difference is that porcelain veneers are intended to become a permanent part of your smile, while Lumineers may only be temporary.
Regardless of which you choose your procedure will start the same way—with a consultation appointment at The Center for Advanced Dentistry. During your consultation, Dr. Hornstein will have a chance to talk with you about the results you’re looking for, in addition to taking a close look at your teeth and gums.
Once Dr. Hornstein has an idea of what you’re looking for, a final recommendation can be made to help you decide which is most right for you. Porcelain veneers are permanent, and require preparation before they can be applied. Lumineers, on the other hand, are sometimes referred to as minimal prep veneers, because they require little to no preparation and can be removed later if you want to return to your natural smile. The one that’s most right for you will depend on your needs and what you want to get out of your new look.
If you’re curious about porcelain veneers and Lumineers but need help deciding between the two, call our Beachwood dental office to schedule a visit with Dr. Hornstein. We’d be happy to help you find your way and transform your smile.

Our last post introduced what we call “smile makeovers.” Today, we’ll spend a little time talking about one service that’s making smile makeovers easier and more convenient.
The Differences Between Braces and Invisalign Clear Braces
While traditional braces and braces from Invisalign can help you achieve the same results, they do so in very different ways. Traditional braces use brackets and wires to gradually shift your teeth into place. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses clear, custom-made acrylic trays.

Back in July, we talked about how patients of Dr. Hornstein’s Beachwood office can have a whiter smile in just one hour with professional teeth whitening.
As great as our teeth whitening services are, though, we’re using more than one cosmetic service to improve smiles and boost confidence. With Invisalign clear braces and porcelain veneers/Lumineers, we can help you achieve exactly the look you’ve been dreaming of.
These individual services make up what we call a smile makeover, and over the next few posts we’ll go into more detail about exactly what these services are, how they can help you, and what kinds of benefits they bring to the table. But for now, we’ll just tell you that with these services, patients can dramatically change the way their smile looks. Each one comes with different benefits, and one may be more right for you than the other, but both can yield dramatically surprising results.
To find out which service will give your smile and your confidence the biggest boost possible, contact our Beachwood office to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Hornstein. His passion for his patients, mixed with his eye for detail and expertise will help him create a makeover plan that you can count on.
Call us today, and let us get your smile makeover started.

Teeth can become stained for several reasons. One of the biggest is age, but certain beverages (like tea or coffee) can have a major effect, too, as can smoking and even certain medications. But with professional teeth whitening from Dr. Hornstein’s Beachwood dental office, a vibrant smile can be yours again, and in about just one hour.
Using Brite Smile’s professional whitening treatment, we can safely and effectively return your teeth to their optimal brightness.
Professional Whitening in the Comfort of Your Own Home
But in-office teeth whitening isn’t the only way you can revitalize your smile. With at-home teeth whitening, you can achieve professional results in the comfort of your own home. Results aren’t as immediate—best results take between one and two weeks—but you can still look forward to enjoying a brighter, more confident smile.
You can even use at-home teeth whitening in between in-office treatments. We call this our “Whitening for Life” program, and you can find out more about his it works by clicking here.
The Confident Smile of Your Dreams
If you have questions about our teeth whitening services or just want to schedule your next visit with Dr. Hornstein, give our Beachwood dental office a call today. Dr. Hornstein’s practice serves patients from Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, and surrounding cities.
