Assessing Your Dental Dream
Before you decide to move forward with your very own smile makeover, it’s important to think about what exactly you want to enhance. Are you annoyed with stubborn tooth stains? Do you feel your smile is too “gummy”? Asking yourself these questions can give you a clearer picture of your dream smile.
Remember, smile makeovers can alter:
- Tooth color, shape, and length
- Spacing and alignment of teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Areas where teeth are missing
- Chipped or cracked teeth
Whatever it ends up being, our cosmetic dentists can help you pinpoint areas where there may be room for improvement with an oral examination. We’ll also evaluate your oral health at this time. Keep in mind, we will not pressure you to change anything. We will instead serve as guides during the process and provide advice where it is warranted.
How to Maintain Your Results
If you want your new and improved smile to stay that way, you’ll need to put in the work. By that, we mean brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing once daily, and receiving a cleaning every 6 months. Committing to your oral hygiene routine will not only protect your restorations, but protect you against decay as well.
Some cosmetic procedures require maintenance over time which regular checkups can help you keep track of and schedule accordingly. For example, whitened teeth may need a touchup some time after your first round of gel application. Our dentists will be sure you’re made aware of the care requirements of certain treatments.
