If you love your smile and want to keep enjoying its beauty, you’ve got to give it some love. If you’re one of the many people who aren’t completely happy with the way your teeth look, your smile is in need of even more TLC. The good news is that it’s possible to turn around nearly any dental problem or cosmetic concern. All you need is the right treatment from a skilled, compassionate dentist. Here, we discuss a few of the many ways you can give your smile more love.
An Ounce of Prevention
Hands down, the best way to love your smile is to care for it daily. Brushing takes four minutes out of the day; two minutes in the morning and two at night before bed. Flossing only needs to be done once, and that typically only takes another couple of minutes. The problem is not that brushing and flossing are difficult, it is that most people just don’t remember to do these practices as consistently as they must for optimal oral health. Then, when dental conditions start to cause discomfort, there may be an aversion to seeing the dentist. As much as poor oral health can hurt, dental anxiety prevents many people from getting the early care that will help get their smile back on track.

Managing Dental Problems
Regardless of where you are at this moment, you can have a smile that you feel proud of. Your first step is to schedule a consultation and examination. Many routine visits can also include a cleaning in which the dentist or hygienist gently removes plaque and tartar, polishes teeth, and flosses to remove unhealthy bacteria. Our team can also demonstrate how to brush and floss comfortably and efficiently.
Loving your smile more may also involve handling some oral or cosmetic concerns. Using sedation dentistry, many patients are able to have multiple treatments in one visit. These may include restorative treatments like fillings or CEREC crowns to repair damaged teeth alongside cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers or bonding.
