The Important Prerequisite For Cosmetic Dentistry [BLOG]

Teeth Whitening 2 San Antonio, TX | Cosmetic Dental Associates

At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we’re so fortunate to be able to help patients love what they see in the mirror.

It makes all the extensive training and long hours worth every second to watch someone who’s spent years feeling ashamed or insecure about their teeth and gums suddenly transform when they see the results of their cosmetic treatment.

The Important Prerequisite For Cosmetic Dentistry

But before any of that can happen, it’s our responsibility to make sure you’re ready.

So here’s an important prerequisite to cosmetic dentistry and how our San Antonio team can help you get there!

*Your Teeth & Gums Need To Be Healthy*

There’s absolutely no point in pursuing cosmetic dentistry if your mouth isn’t healthy first.

This is the prerequisite every patient must meet before we begin cosmetic treatment, but more on how we can help you do that in a minute.

For now, we just want to stress the importance of a good oral hygiene routine. You should be brushing your teeth with a soft-bristle toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste. Make sure you’re doing this twice a day for two minutes each time!

Flossing is tremendously important, as well. When you floss once a day, you’re getting rid of bacteria’s favorite food source, which is all those tiny particles that get stuck between your teeth after you eat.

If you’re already doing these things, you’re on the right track to making your dream smile a reality!

*Professional Dental Care Matters*

There are two important reasons why routine professional dental care gives your smile the upper hand.

First, you can’t remove plaque and tartar on your own. It’s not just a matter of training and experience, but it’s also a matter of tools. It takes professional methods to clean your teeth and gums of the harmful materials you can’t see, so having that kind of care at least twice a year is a must. During those visits, you’ll also have the luxury of wide-ranging preventive services like nutritional counseling, fluoride treatments, and many others, to strengthen and protect your teeth.

The second advantage is that you build a close relationship with Dr. Moore and our team who know your medical and dental history and can cultivate a proactive, personalized strategy for preventing and combating your specific oral health needs along the way.

That’s invaluable when it comes to putting your trust in the right hands by professionals who know you better than anyone else and who care about helping you achieve your smile goals!

*We’ll Set Your Smile Up For Success*

If an oral examination reveals a dental problem, that’s not the end of the road for your dream of cosmetic dentistry.

That just means we have a little work to do before we can get started on cosmetic treatment.

And by a little work, we’re talking about fairly common dental problems anyone might face throughout a lifetime, like tooth decay, cavities, or perhaps issues with overcrowding.

There’s always the possibility that you might be struggling with more complicated oral health issues, but our restorative and reconstructive services are already in place to help you overcome it!

Regardless, Dr. Moore brings over 35 years of professional experience to the table, so any underlying oral health problem, big or small, uncovered during a dental exam is no match for his training and expertise.

We’ll make sure you’re well-cared for and comfortable, and that you get state-of-the-art treatment that’s swift and effective.

After that, you and Dr. Moore can move forward with cosmetic dentistry to achieve the smile results you’ve been waiting for!
