So, you have made the decision to have a cosmetic dentistry procedure done and now aftercare is a concern. Of course, you are going to want to do whatever it takes to maintain your new smile so here is how you will do it.

Get Professional Cleanings and Checkups

At Martin Dentistry in Stockton, our hygienists know how to take care of clients following cosmetic dentistry treatments, so they will use special pastes and polishes for your veneers, crowns, or whatever else you might have had done. In short, they will help you with your cosmetic dentistry aftercare.

Have Regular Fluoride Treatments

You might have heard that fluoride is bad for you, but that is not true. At Martin Dentistry, we use neutral fluoride so it will not harm what lies under your cosmetic dentistry restorations, and it will also not discolor your restorations. It will, though, help protect you against decay and gum disease.

Avoid Alcohol

Of course, we know that everyone enjoys the occasional cocktail or glass of wine, but please do not over-indulge. It can weaken crowns and porcelain veneers. If you do drink, brush or use a mouthwash afterward as part of your cosmetic dentistry aftercare regimen.

Watch What You Eat

There are no real restrictions on what you can eat when it comes to cosmetic dentistry aftercare, but we do recommend that you not bite down hard.
