With all the activity outside, and around people, it is certainly a fantastic time of the year to have your smile tuned up. Whether you need a little bit of work or a few different improvements, we are always here to help.
Today, your Bedford, MA dentist talks a little about how you can take advantage of the season in bringing a perfect smile to every occasion!
Despite proper home oral health care, seeing a dentist for cleanings and exams is important. They have the tools to monitor any changes, and hopefully tackle issues as early as possible. But where to start?
First And Foremost: An Exam
Before anything else, you should schedule a cleaning with your dentist. We suggest an examination and a cleaning at least once a year, and you can discuss your goals and possibilities with a dentist. It’s always easier to decide with your mouth available for a guide!
Your dentist can also detect any signs of oral cancer, or fungal infections such as thrush. While we tend to focus on the teeth, the mouth is full of vulnerabilities to outside infection. It is important to treat the health of the whole mouth.
For those looking to improve on their smile, there is no greater solution than porcelain veneers. They cover up a multitude of cosmetic oral nightmares, and are tailored to look as natural as your original tooth.
Veneers are a porcelain cap that goes over the surface of the tooth. Specially trained ceramicists craft new teeth, as durable as the original enamel. The dentist then cements the cap over your tooth, creating a beautiful new recreation.
These new teeth can be placed in individual teeth or multiple. They are also highly durable, with little risk of cracking or chipping.
Whitening is also always very popular this time of year, and that is no surprise. You want your pearly whites to shine as much as possible on those trips to the pool.
We offer an array of whitening possibilities to meet your needs.We utilize a bleaching gel that softly lifts stains from the enamel, in order to ensure the safety and health of the teeth.
