    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.

Just brought my little girl here for a cleaning this morning - and she had a really good experience. This was her first time at this dental office because our previous dentist retired and moved out of state, but they did a great job of making her feel calm and relaxed, giving her a "familiar" vibe, despite being in a totally unfamiliar place.

Needed a quick lower partial adjustment. Slipped me in so I could enjoy my holiday & be able to eat. Always professional & prompt.

For the past few years I've been debating a tooth restoration treatment from my dentist here, and I finally took the plunge, and they look great! The reason I ended up going for it is, what's not to like? Their services are modestly priced, and the staff is loyal and friendly to their longtime customers (aka me!)

My sister in law recommended me the dentists here because she has little kids - like me - who felt nervous about going to the dentist, and said they do a great job here of easing them into the work they do, so that they feel more comfortable and open. Glad I brought them here!
