How to Maintain Your Smile After Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment in London

The Importance of Oral Hygiene

Good oral hygiene is the foundation of a healthy mouth, and it’s especially important after cosmetic dentistry treatment. Your teeth may be more vulnerable to decay and damage, so it’s essential to maintain a regular brushing and flossing routine.

It’s recommended that you brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time, using a fluoride toothpaste. Make sure you brush all surfaces of your teeth, including the front, back, and chewing surfaces. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, too – it can harbour bacteria that contribute to bad breath.

Flossing is just as important as brushing, as it removes plaque and food particles from between your teeth and gums. Floss at least once a day, taking care to reach all the way to the gum line.

Watch What You Eat and Drink

Certain foods and drinks can stain or damage your teeth, so it’s best to avoid or limit them (read more). These include:

  • Coffee and tea
  • Red wine
  • Cola and other sugary drinks
  • Tomato sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Berries

If you do consume these items, rinse your mouth with water afterwards to help minimize staining. You may also want to consider using a straw when drinking acidic beverages, as this can help reduce their contact with your teeth.

Protect Your Teeth from Damage

Cosmetic dentistry treatments can make your teeth more susceptible to damage, so it’s important to take steps to protect them. Here are some tips:

  • Wear a mouthguard when playing sports or engaging in other activities that could result in a blow to the face.
  • Don’t use your teeth to open bottles or packages.
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects like ice, pens, and pencils.
  • If you grind your teeth at night, consider getting a custom-fitted night guard to prevent damage.

Regular Check-ups with Your Dentist

Regular check-ups with your dentist are crucial to maintaining your oral health and your new smile. During these appointments, your dentist can check for any signs of decay or damage and provide treatment as needed. They can also give you advice on how to maintain your oral hygiene and protect your teeth from damage (read more).
