Cosmetic Dentistry Aftercare
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are designed to improve your smile and give you more confidence. Though there is a wide range of procedures to chose from, it is important to consider the need for cosmetic dentistry aftercare to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and so that you may continue to enjoy a more beautiful smile. Let’s take a moment to walk through a few aftercare details that you should keep in mind after you see your cosmetic dentist in the Upper East Side.
Maintaining Gorgeous White Teeth
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures that we perform for our patients in the Upper East Side. Unfortunately, if you do not take proper care of your teeth after whitening, though, they will become stained again.
Fortunately, however, teeth whitening aftercare is not difficult or time consuming. Essentially, you will want to use a recommended whitening toothpaste, and you will want to brush, floss, and rinse your mouth at least twice daily. Drinking lots of water and avoiding dark-colored foods and beverages can help, as well.
Caring for Porcelain Veneers
For the most part, the cosmetic dentistry aftercare for porcelain veneers and dental bonding will be to take care of your teeth as normal. Porcelain is not very susceptible to staining, but you should still care for your teeth to ensure that the look and function properly. Also, be aware that excessive alcohol intake may negatively affect the way the veneers bond to your teeth, which can cause problems.
