Caring for Common Treatments from a Cosmetic Dentist

Cosmetic Dentist Chandler, AZ

Treatment from a cosmetic dentist is a great way to improve your smile by fixing issues such as discoloration, broken teeth and misalignment concerns. However, keeping your smile beautiful long-term requires good oral hygiene at home, which we discuss how to achieve in this review. 

Aftercare tips following treatment from a cosmetic dentist

Patients should consistently work on their smiles to keep it the way they want it by practicing good oral care, making smart dietary choices, drinking water throughout the day and visiting the dentist for all regular check-ups. By doing so, patients can ensure the results of their treatment from the cosmetic dentist lasts for as long as possible. 

Keep your mouth clean with good oral hygiene

Good oral hygiene begins with brushing, flossing and using mouthwash consistently and the way the cosmetic dentist recommends. When brushing, be sure to use a clean, soft-bristled toothbrush and preferably one that is electric. Brush all areas of the mouth, including the cheeks, gums, tongue and the back of teeth that are harder to reach. Brush the gums gently, as well. Ideally, people should brush two or three times a day, use floss daily and rinse with mouthwash as directed (typically once each night). 

Eat foods that are low in sugar and other carbohydrates

Foods that are high in sugar and other harmful carbohydrates break down dental enamel and eventually cause cavities (small holes in teeth). This can lead to the need for extensive oral health treatments such as dental restoration or root canal therapy. High-sugar foods also harm periodontal health and can lead to periodontitis as well, which puts the long-term health of gums, teeth and underlying jawbone in jeopardy. Therefore, reducing the consumption of sugar and taking extra caution when eating other foods that may contribute to poor oral health (i.e. citrus fruits) is encouraged. 

Limit coffee and tea and drink water throughout the day

Coffee, tea, alcohol, soft drinks and various other dark beverages have the same effect on oral health that high-sugar foods do. Therefore, reducing the consumption of these harmful beverages and drinking water throughout the day to keep food and bacteria washed away is a better option to keep your smile looking great after treatment from a cosmetic dentist. 

Visit the dentist for all scheduled check-ups and cleanings

Check-up visits and cleanings with the cosmetic dentist ensure any minor issues with oral health or your smile are noticed early and treated promptly to prevent them from developing into a more serious concern. Most cosmetic dentists recommend a visit for a check-up and cleaning once every four to six months.
