Your smile creates a lasting impression on the people that you meet. Without proper care for your mouth, you will suffer dramatic changes to the form and beauty of your smile.

Key takeaways:

– The teeth and the face are the two major factors in the anatomy of your smile.

–  Good care for the teeth through brushing and flossing should keep the teeth white and free from stains.

–  Manage stress to prevent the problem of teeth grinding — which will cause chipping, micro-fractures, and yellowing due to thinning of tooth enamel.

“Your cosmetic dental work should be like your everyday beauty routine—natural and preventive. Working with a cosmetic dentist can ensure that your mouth continues to look vibrant!”
