Cosmetic Dentistry is Not A New Idea

If you read our last post, you will have learned that the desire to have a beautiful smile isn’t an idea originating soley of the twenty-first century thinking. Egyptians performed dental procedures such as crowns and bridges and even had a form of toothpaste. Later, the Romans used their own urine as a means of whitening their teeth, and during medieval times, your dentist was also your barber. Throughout history, the means of creating crowns and dentures, as well as other types of dental work continued to evolve (thankfully!) into what we have today.

Soda is the Worst

If you are concerned about your teeth and how they look, as well as if you will be able to keep them healthy for the duration of your life, then it’s time to stop drinking soda. We understand that soda is delicious, but it is chalk full of sugar and other chemicals that wreak havoc on your teeth and gums — and overall health. More than half of those who lose their teeth attribute it to soda. If you can’t put this beverage down, limit yourself to one a day or less.



Veneers Can Protect Your Teeth

Veneers will not only make your teeth look their best, but it will keep them in their best health. Because veneers are thin caps that are fitted on top of your teeth, they protect your natural teeth’s enamel. Your teeth’s enamel is the hardest substance in your body. However, it can still be broken down by what you eat and drink, teeth grinding, and other factors. Veneers might seem like an intimidating financial investment initially, but it will save you money in the long run, and allow you to have a beautiful smile now and many years from now.

An Hour Can Change Your Life

One hour in the dentist chair can change your life. How so? Teeth whitening. Your teeth can become 10 shades lighter through just one whitening session! Having a beautiful white smile can not only create more lucrative and fulfilling career opportunities, but you can have success in your social and romantic life.
