Happy New Year from the Coastal Cosmetic + Implant Dentistry team! We hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season. Now that the new year is upon us, your Virginia Beach, VA dentists wanted to make some recommendations on potential smile goals for the new year. Whether you want to improve the appearance of your smile or address complex dental concerns during the new year, we have the dental services you need to achieve your goals. Learn more below.
Treat Yourself To A Smile Makeover
Cosmetic concerns with your smile can hold you back both personally and professionally. Studies have shown that when you do not feel confident with the aesthetics of your smile, you are less likely to speak, laugh, or smile in public. It’s important to us that our patients do not suffer the consequences of low self-esteem. If you are ready to make some changes to the appearance of your smile, request a cosmetic dentistry consultation with one of our top Virginia Beach dentists. Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley specialize in providing routine preventive dental services and advanced restorative and cosmetic treatments. They can put together a treatment plan combining multiple dental services to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. From professional teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, our offices have everything you need to achieve a new smile for the new year.
Improve Your Oral Hygiene
Practicing a strict at-home oral hygiene routine is important to maintaining your smile for many years to come. If you have fallen behind on practicing your best oral hygiene habits, now is the perfect time to get back on track. Patients should brush and floss twice a day to prevent common dental concerns like gum disease and tooth decay. Additionally, avoiding foods and drinks that are notoriously tough on your teeth will help you avoid related concerns. Many foods and drinks contain staining agents that can cause your smile to become dull or yellow. By practicing moderation with tooth-staining substances, you can prevent dental discoloration from happening in the first place. Above all, patients should ensure that they have scheduled their biannual dental cleanings for the new year. Seeing your dentist twice a year is one of the best things you can do for your oral hygiene and overall dental health.
Replace Missing Teeth
Are you missing one or more teeth? Consider asking about your tooth replacement options at your next dental appointment. Missing teeth put additional strain on your remaining teeth the longer that they are left untreated. Additionally, patients with missing teeth may find it challenging to speak or eat as usual. Coastal Cosmetic + Implant Dentistry provides dental implants to patients with missing teeth. Dental implants are a natural-looking and functioning tooth replacement option that utilizes a surgically implanted titanium post to replace your tooth-root structure. Once fully healed, your restored tooth will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth thanks to this additional support.
