Proper care and maintenance for the a list smile- procedure by procedure (new york cosmetic dentist 10019)

  1. 1. Proper Care and Maintenance for the A-List Smile:! Procedure by Procedure Dr. Catrise Austin
  2. 2. Proper Care and Maintenance for the! A-List Smile: Procedure by Procedure §  How to care for which procedure, how often and how thoroughly? Relax; I’ve got you covered. In this section I review the various AList procedures that I discussed in the last section and share with you any special considerations there may be for your specific needs: §  Porcelain Veneers: Veneers can be brushed, and flossed, just like your regular teeth. So the same healthy routines you had before – brushing, flossing and regular dental visits – still apply. The only special recommendation I would make is to invest in a night guard to avoid any unnecessary grinding of your new veneers while you sleep.
  3. 3. Proper Care and Maintenance for the! A-List Smile: Procedure by Procedure §  Invisalign® Clear Braces: Your new, clear braces will help straighten your teeth and give you the confidence you need to face the world with a brand new smile. But unlike veneers, they require a special set of cleaning instructions that your dentist should give you. Once a day, brush them with a soft toothbrush using cold or lukewarm water much as you would your own teeth. Invisalign offers a special cleaning system that can be ordered online to soak and clean your aligners as needed. §  ZOOM!® Teeth Whitening: To keep your teeth their brightest, continue to clean your teeth much as you would previously: brushing twice a day and flossing regularly. An electric toothbrush is a powerful tool to help keep the stains away. Some people like baking soda or baking soda formula pastes to aid in stain removal. For regular touch-ups, your dental expert can provide you with Zoom! Weekender or Nite White gel.
  4. 4. Proper Care and Maintenance for the! A-List Smile: Procedure by Procedure §  Snap-On Smile®: Caring for your Snap-On Smile® is truly a snap, but it requires one extra step to do so thoroughly. First, take off your appliance and clean your teeth as you normally would: brush and floss properly. Next, clean your appliance according to the proper care procedures prescribed by your dental expert. Your dentist should provide you with a special cleaning solution for your appliance and additional cleaning supplies can be ordered online at www.snaponsmile.com.
  5. 5. Proper Care and Maintenance for the! A-List Smile: Procedure by Procedure §  Tooth Colored Fillings: Some people believe that once a filling is placed, they are safe from getting cavities in that tooth again. Unfortunately, this is not true! Cavities can still form under the margins of your fillings where the filling and tooth come together, so cleaning them as you always would by brushing and flossing regularly is crucial. Your dentist will also want to pay special attention to them during your routine, twice-yearly visits. A special note about brushing your porcelain fillings: many people brush only the front of their teeth. I recommend, in addition to brushing just the front of your teeth that you brush both the top of your teeth, biting surface and behind your teeth and continue to floss as well.
  6. 6. Proper Care and Maintenance for the! A-List Smile: Procedure by Procedure §  Dental Implants: Treat your implants like your own teeth; care for them much as you would your own. Your dental expert will pay special attention to your periodontal care as well as your medical health to make sure that you have the proper amount of bone to support the implant. §  Bonding: While dental bonding quickly becomes part of your own teeth, there are a few special considerations to take when cleaning them. For starters, minimize or avoid consuming foods and beverages that can tarnish and stain the natural look that your dental professional worked so hard to achieve. Also, be sure to use a soft brush head and brush thoroughly as well as floss between your teeth to avoid decay. If you grind your teeth at night or clench during the day, consider having a night guard made to protect your bonding from chipping off.
  7. 7. Proper Care and Maintenance for the! A-List Smile: Procedure by Procedure §  A-List Advice: §  Please use this section as a supplement to the care instructions your dental expert gave you along with your A-List Smile. Procedures are continually updated and your dentist can provide you with the latest guidelines and routines to help care for your new smile.
