When Should You Visit the Dentist?

Cosmetic & General DentistMany people have a fear of the dentist and only go when there’s a serious issue. Unfortunately, this means they are missing some critical preventive services that can ensure their oral health and keep their dental care costs down. Seeing the dentist on a regular basis can detect and treat oral health problems, including oral cancer and tooth decay, as quickly as possible. Your dentist may recommend more frequent dental visits to handle issues, such as excess plaque buildup and gum disease. Most patients should see the dentist once or twice a year.

During your regular dental checkups, the dentist will examine the health of your gums and teeth, as well as check for signs of oral cancer. A professional cleaning is also performed to eliminate stubborn deposits so your teeth look and feel great. There’s no reason to miss these appointments.

 

Get a Smile Makeover

Your job is to tell us what you expect from your smile and what it is you don’t like. Before you attend your first consultation, consider the following:

  1. What do you like or dislike about your teeth, such as shape, spacing, size and color?
  2. Do you like how much your teeth show when you smile or your face is relaxed?
  3. Do you want perfectly aligned, bright white teeth or do you prefer a more natural look?
  4. Do you want more or less of your gums to show?

Collecting pictures of what you like and don’t like can help you achieve the results you’re looking for. Pictures of the way you used to look can also help. There’s no reason to wait to create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
