How to Improve Your Smile in 2021

Happy New Year against a night sky and fireworks to celebrate 2021

With this new year, we invite you to evaluate your oral health habits. If you have delayed some necessary dental treatments or neglected your oral hygiene this past year, 2021 is the time to get back on track! In this blog post, we share some ways to improve your smile this new year.

Improve Your At-Home Oral Hygiene Routine

Taking great care of your teeth at home is the foundation of a healthy smile. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time and floss every day. Some patients also benefit from rinsing with an alcohol-free mouthwash that is antibacterial or that contains fluoride. If you’re concerned about tooth stains, limit your consumption of tea, coffee, and wine. And if you smoke or use tobacco, do all you can to quit as soon as possible for the sake of your dental health and your overall health!

Get Professional Cleanings Every 6 Months

Professional cleanings and exams are an essential complement to at-home dental care. Our team will remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque), and let you know if we detect any abnormalities that require treatment. Your dental insurance plan should cover your preventive cleanings and exams. But if you don’t have insurance, we offer an in-house savings plan to help make your oral healthcare costs more affordable.

Upgrade Your Smile with Orthodontics or Cosmetic Dentistry

Make 2021 the year you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted! Orthodontics like Invisalign® fix crooked teeth, gaps, and bite alignments. Porcelain veneers and professional teeth whitening are other ways to dramatically improve your smile’s appearance. We invite you to schedule a cosmetic consultation at our office for more information about these cosmetic treatments!
