Having any cosmetic dentistry work done is usually reason to celebrate; after all, it means that your once maligned smile is now back to its usual dazzling self!

However, what some people fail to realize is that, after any cosmetic dentistry procedures at Personal Dental Care in Richmond, Virginia you need to continue to carry out a stringent oral health regimen. Otherwise, all that work to get your smile perfect again will have been in vain.

Brush and floss

After any sort of cosmetic procedure, you want to make sure that you’re brushing and flossing regularly. Not doing so will put you right back where you were before getting your cosmetic procedures done – in need of more help to save your teeth.

Regular brushing and flossing is needed even with partial dentures or implants. Both solutions will last far longer with regular oral care than if you otherwise ignore them.

Don’t ignore checkups

Just because you have veneers, implants, bridges, or other cosmetic dentistry work in your mouth doesn’t mean that you suddenly don’t need to visit the dentist any longer. Even if your entire mouth is full of dental implants, there’s still the risk of gum disease. You can’t overlook your regular dental visits after finishing your cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Cosmetic dentistry is a wonderful tool that can drastically improve how you look, and how you feel about yourself. If you’re interested in some procedures or want a consultation, call us today at 804-554-3767 to schedule an appointment.
