It helps to understand the types of cosmetic treatment that these cosmetic dentistry aftercare tips apply to, and they include:
Clearly, that brief list represents many different kinds of treatment, and yet they all share some essential cosmetic dentistry aftercare methods. Let’s consider those common needs, which include:
- Regular dental hygiene that includes brushing, flossing and twice annual exams and cleanings in our office
- Avoiding consumption of foods or drinks that can cause unwanted wear and tear (chewing ice, eating hard or chewy candies or a diet high in sugar are common examples)
- Following all recommendations from our team in the hours and days after any treatment is done. Often this means avoiding eating or drinking for a few hours, getting in touch if there are any issues, and coming in for any essential follow up care
- Avoiding habits that can lead to wear and tear on the teeth such as chewing pencil or pen ends, biting the nails or using the teeth as tools
It is not at all complicated to care for your cosmetic dentistry treatments, but with these simple aftercare tips you should get the best results possible.
