Keep Your Smile Bright and Healthy with These Tips
You’ve spent time and money to improve your smile and dental health with cosmetic dentistry; protect your investment by following the instructions provided by your dentist.
Helpful Tips for Cosmetic Dentistry
Teeth straightening with Invisalign not only enhances your smile, but your oral health should greatly improve as those areas that were difficult to prevent plaque build up are diminished or completely gone. To maintain that great new smile, you need to make sure to wear the retainer that was provided. This final step should be considered part of your teeth straightening program; if you fail to wear the retainer as prescribed, teeth can drift back to their former location.
Stained or discolored teeth can ruin your smile. Your dentist can brighten your smile in just one in-office treatment with the Zoom! Whitening system. Professional whitening from your dental provider has multiple advantages over buying a product at a drug store or online.
You know the products you are using have been tested for safety … your dentist has done the research for you. Plus if you have questions, you have a reliable resource to provide answers.
Your helpful tip for maintaining your newly whitened smile is to learn the products that are known to stain. Coffee, tea, cola, red wine, tomato based sauces, dark seasonings, balsamic, and soy sauces, many berries, and consumables enhanced by food colorings (think purple popsicles, for instance) … these are a few of the products that can stain your teeth. Plan to rinse with water or drink water to help flush teeth as much as possible. Discontinue smoking and all tobacco use to keep teeth looking their best.
If you have had the misfortune of tooth loss, dental implants are a permanent and very natural solution that allows the patient to enjoy all their favorite foods, speak with clarity, and smile with self-confidence. Once the dental implant process is completed, you will treat your cosmetic enhancement with the same care you provide all your teeth.
Overall Dental Health Tips
Visit your dentist for cleaning and exam every six months. Make sure to brush as least twice daily with a fluoridated toothpaste; and floss every day to remove what your toothbrush missed.
