The holidays are right around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to pursue those cosmetic dentistry services you’ve had your eye on. At Russell Street Dental Associates, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to assist our patients in achieving their dream smile. Learn more about our cosmetic dentistry services below:
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is any dental service that aims to improve the overall aesthetics of your smile. With these services, we can address dental concerns like missing teeth, broken teeth, misaligned teeth, and stained teeth. While small blemishes may not be causing structural issues within your smile, they tend to take a toll on your confidence. With family photos and holiday gatherings coming up, now is the time to pursue a cosmetic dentistry solution that perfectly meets your needs. Our cosmetic services include:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Teeth Whitening
If your teeth are severely chipped, damaged, or missing, we can also offer restorative dentistry options like dental implants or dental crowns. These will not only address the issue of appearance but will also restore the functionality of your affected teeth.
Is cosmetic dentistry worth it?
Studies have shown that when you feel more confident about your smile, you are more likely to succeed both personally and professionally. Patients who suffer from cosmetic concerns often feel the need to hide their smiles or avoid public speaking. We don’t want you to lose out on any opportunity out of the self-consciousness of your smile. Instead, we prefer to address these concerns with our cosmetic dentistry services.
Patients who give themselves the gift of a smile makeover may also notice an improved state of their overall dental health. We often see this occur because patients work hard to ensure they can maintain their dream smile by practicing superb oral health care moving forward.
How can I maintain my smile over the holidays?
The holidays are particularly tough on your teeth. Many holiday snacks and beverages are known for leaving behind staining agents on your teeth. Examples include cranberry sauce, red wine, hot cocoa, and blueberry pie. While delicious, these substances leave behind residue on your teeth that may dull or yellow your smile. Practice enjoying these snacks in moderation this holiday season. Additionally, drink any flavored beverages through a straw to help prevent the staining agents from making contact with your teeth. You should also follow any particularly stain-causing snacks with a thorough brushing and flossing session to remove the residue before it hardens on your dental structures.
