Cosmetic Dentistry: then and now…When still in its infancy, there were a few hiccups with cosmetic dentistry. What were they? Well, twenty years ago, cosmetic dentistry looked fake—if you had work done it was obvious. Today however, that is not the case. When you visit a dentist who is skilled in providing cosmetic dentistry, you won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and the teeth you’ve had work on. Cosmetic dental treatments done well should provide you with a smile that is natural and healthy-looking. Visit Curtis Couch D.D.S. in Thousand Oaks today to find out how we can help your smile.
…Did You Know?Statistics show that people who get cosmetic dental treatments are 68% more likely to look after their overall oral health than other people. This, when you think about it, makes sense. If you’re going to spend money on improving the look of your teeth, it only makes sense to make a conscientious effort to keep your teeth looking good. Apart from the usual oral hygiene routine—brushing and flossing regularly—there are some other things you can do to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. For instance, drinking water after meals is a good way to remove bacteria before brushing your teeth and by drinking before you brush your teeth will maximize the benefits of brushing your teeth. There are also the foods and drinks that you should avoid in order to minimize staining your teeth. For example you should avoid:
- Fruit juice
…Did You Know?Did you know that sugar isn’t the primary cause of cavities? Sugar is almost the prime cause but in actual fact it’s the acid produced by bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria are triggered to create acid when you eat carbohydrates and sugar is a carbohydrate. But so too are fruits, vegetables, rice, potatoes and bread. You see, once the acid eats into your tooth, the bacteria have somewhere to go where the tooth brush can’t get to them. Over time these bacteria continue to produce acid and your cavity will get bigger.
What’s This Got to Do with Cosmetic Dental Treatments?Looking after your teeth is more involved than just brushing and flossing your teeth, there are also your lifestyle choices. Do you drink a lot of tea or coffee? Do you enjoy the occasional cigarette or three? Does that chocolate bar make the end of the work day just a little bit easier to deal with? It’s a dentist’s job to help you look after your teeth and the rest of your oral health. At Curtis Couch D.D.S. we offer a range of tooth whitening treatments to help whiten, refresh and restore your smile.
