Getting your treatment and the smile you've always wanted is only half the battle when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. While so many individuals are focused on the immediate outcomes of their treatment, few people consider what it takes to sustain these results over time.

Simple Ways to Maintain Your Beautiful Smile

Keep Good Oral Hygiene Practices

Brushing and flossing your teeth properly will help prevent staining and remove plaque and tartar, both of which may impair the appearance of your smile and lead to concerns like tooth decay and gum disease.

Brushing for at least two minutes, two to three times per day, and flossing once per day are recommended. In addition, visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and dental checkup to ensure that your smile is in good health.

Must Avoid Chewing on Hard Objects

This is true whether you have a dental bonding, veneers, or even porcelain crowns on your teeth. Patients should avoid biting on hard objects since this might harm the aesthetic treatment done on their teeth.

Teeth can be harmed by chewing on pencils, fingernails, or opening packages with the teeth. A single erroneous swipe might cause the tooth to chip or fracture.

Teeth-staining Foods and Beverages Should Be Avoided

Teeth stains can be caused by staining meals and beverages such as coffee, dark tea, wine, and other intensely pigmented liquids.

Reduce your intake of certain meals and beverages, and if feasible, sip via a straw to avoid direct contact with your teeth. Brush your teeth as soon as possible after drinking or eating these meals.

Eat a Balanced Diet

Excessive consumption of sugar, alcohol, soda, and acidic foods is not recommended. These alternatives may jeopardize oral health and alter the outcome of a smile makeover. Fruits and vegetables and calcium-rich foods, including complex carbohydrates, are all suggested in the diet.

Get a Mouth Guard if You Grind Your Teeth

Teeth grinding during the night, for example, might cause harm to your dental work. The grinding process generates too much force for the teeth to manage. Patients should talk to their dentist about acquiring a nightguard if they believe they are grinding their teeth. When playing contact sports, a mouthguard can help protect them.
