Services from a Dentist: Maintaining and Improving

When you take care of your smile’s health and its appearance, you will find that your self-confidence is also increased; when people feel confident about the appearance of their smile, it helps them feel more confident about themselves. A dentist is an essential part of keeping your smile healthy and aesthetically appealing. Dentists perform many different procedures and offer many different services to help you maintain and improve your smile. Here are some of the different maintenance and cosmetic services that you have available to you when you go to a dental office.




Maintaining Your Smile

First, in order to maintain the health of your teeth and mouth, you will need to make regular trips to the dental office for dental exams and cleaning. Most dentist will suggest that you have an exam and cleaning done at least once a year, though they do encourage that you make trips to the dentist’s office once every six months. In a dental cleaning, a hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove the plaque that has built up on your teeth since your last professional cleaning. In a dental exam, your teeth are examined in order to determine if there is any decay or disease afflicting the teeth. These exams are very important in preventing dental problems. In an exam, potential problems can be discovered and diagnosed early on in order to perform any dental repair work that is necessary before the problem escalates to a more serious level (a level that would require more extensive and expensive repair).

Improving Your Smile


You can also go to your dentist for cosmetic services to improve the appearance of your smile. Some popular cosmetic dental services available to you are teeth straightening and teeth whitening. For people with crooked teeth, you can go to a dental office where they will determine the severity of your case and suggest either traditional braces or clear braces. Additionally, if you are looking to reverse the effects of everyday teeth yellowing, dentists can perform teeth whitening services in order to whiten your teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile.

  10. This is the reason why I would send often or regularly to our dentist. It is indeed expensive but we can't lose teeth and could not smile at all.

  11. I am one of the many Filipinos who don't have the healthiest teeth because of lack of access to the dentist while growing up. Now, I make sure that my daughters get enough chances to visit their dentist regularly.
