Celebrate the New Year with a Healthy Smile
- Posted on: Dec 15 2016
We’re about to bring in another new year, and that gives us yet more to look forward to after a festive holiday season. During this time, many of us think about things we want to improve in the coming year. That may be our eating habits, our physique, or even our mindset. When health and wellbeing are an important aspect of life, our patients can discover just how much dental care fits in to that goal.
Preserving Dental Health
The very basis of your best smile is the health of your teeth and gums. Routine dental care revolves around this idea. If the holiday season came and went without you seeing your dentist for a checkup and cleaning, give us a call to get an appointment on the books. Preventive dentistry goes a long way in helping you maintain teeth that are resilient and functional, which also means free of pain and sensitivity.
Tooth damage, once it starts, doesn’t stop. Bacteria and acid just keep on beating away at the part of the tooth they have degraded. Without prompt care, a small cavity could grow into an infection that requires more complex treatment. It is also possible for dental or gum disease to result in tooth loss. Your McLean dentist provides a wide range of services to ensure damaged tooth structure is restored in a way that keeps it strong for many years, and also in a way that preserves the natural aesthetic of the tooth.
Cosmetic dental treatments like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers can make over a smile quickly and with lasting results. One of the biggest misconceptions about smile enhancement is that it takes a long time – and a lot of money. Neither is accurate. Many of our patients find the ideal cosmetic treatment that fits well into their budget.
We wish you a Happy New Year and remind you that we are here to support you the whole year through.
