    How to Protect Your Dental Implants & Cosmetic Dentistry From Food and Drink


    Dental implants and cosmetic dentistry are a group of procedures that are designed to improve your smile. While these procedures can produce excellent results, they may also be costly. As a result, you will want to do as much as possible to protect your smile restoration once it has been completed. Here are a few tips to help you protect your cosmetic dentistry work as you eat and drink.

    Teeth Whitening


    There are many options for teeth whitening procedures that include in-office dental laser treatments, as well as, at-home teeth whitening kits. If you want to protect the results of your teeth whitening procedures, you should make sure to avoid foods that can stain your teeth. Coffee, tea, wine, berries, and deeply colored sauces are foods that can stain your teeth. In addition, foods that contain chromogens, acids and tannins can cause the enamel of your teeth to erode making staining more likely.

    Veneers


    Veneers are designed to restore the appearance and shape of your teeth if they are uneven, discolored or chipped. Veneers can be made from several materials. They are applied by bonding thin shells on to the teeth in order to hide minor imperfections. While veneers are stain and discoloration resistant, after your permanent veneers are in place you should dry to avoid drinking dark liquids and eating hard food. You should also avoid alcohol as it can damage the bonding material of porcelain veneers. If you can’t avoid these items, make sure that you rinse or brush after consuming them.

    Crowns


    Crowns are caps that are placed over the teeth in order to store the size and shape of a damaged tooth. Crowns may be used to hide imperfections or to support a tooth that is structurally weak. If you have a temporary crown, you should avoid sticky foods, nuts, and very crunchy vegetables. Once your permanent crown is in place, there are no special dietary restrictions. However, hot and cold foods may cause sensitivity. In addition, you also want to make sure that you eat only foods that are part of a generally healthy diet as it is possible for decay to develop underneath the crowns if you do not maintain good oral hygiene.

    Dental Implants


    Dental implants are inserted via a procedure that is performed in order to replace missing teeth or teeth that need to be removed as the result of tooth decay or trauma. A dental implant procedure starts with creating an opening in the jaw bone. The implant is then surgically implanted into the bone. Directly following the procedure, your dentist will likely recommend a soft diet. You should also avoid alcoholic beverages which can interfere with the healing of your implant.

    Proper Oral Hygiene Care Is Important


    To protect your smile restoration procedures over the long term, it is important for you to develop an effective oral hygiene routine. This routine should include brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups. Your dentist can guide you on the best ways to care for your smile at home between checkups.

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans
