More than one million people have received a COVID-19 vaccination in New Jersey. This means that it may not be too much longer before we’re able to remove masks indoors – even when around strangers – as things slowly begin to resume normalcy. But it also begs the question: have you been keeping your teeth healthy, attractive, and strong over the past year?
Overdue for a Cleaning
Many of us are overdue for a dental cleaning and examination. This most basic of dental services provides several necessary functions, not the least of which is helping to safeguard against serious oral health problems.
Routine visits allow for the removal of bacteria, debris, plaque, and tartar from above and below the gum line. They also allow us to identify small and common concerns – like cavities – before they devolve into tooth infections and other, more worrisome problems. What’s more, these visits help ensure your teeth are free of surface stains, and that they remain bright, healthy, and strong for years to come.
General dental problems like decay, infection, and gum disease can all cause tooth discoloration and other cosmetic concerns. Of course, oftentimes cosmetic problems need no clear or singular underlying factor; they simply occur on their own. In both cases, cosmetic services can be utilized to improve the appearance of your smile.
We offer a wide range of cosmetic services, including quick fixes such as topical teeth whitening, that can be used alone or in combination to produce a noticeably more attractive smile. If you have let your teeth become dingy or if you would simply like to improve the appearance of your smile, we can discuss all of your options during your next visit.
