5 Steps To A Younger, Healthier Smile

Put your best smile forward, consider these steps for improving the health and appearance of your smile.

  1. Dental Veneers

Dental veneers offer patients an instant smile makeover. Whether you choose traditional porcelain veneers or minimal prep veneers, Dr.Engelberg can customize the shell-like restoration to blend seamlessly with your natural smile. Whether you have a chipped tooth or permanent tooth discoloration, dental veneers are an effective and beautiful solution for addressing cosmetic blemishes. Dental veneers are designed to be a permanent dental treatment that can help to stabilize the tooth structure and prevent future damage. Patients may use a single dental veneer or apply dental veneers to multiple teeth resulting in a gorgeous, rejuvenated smile. 

  1. Botox

While you may not consider your dentist for your Botox, Dr.Engelberg has advanced training in cosmetic Botox application. As a dentist with years of experience and education in the intricacies of facial muscles, Dr.Engelberg is able to produce natural-looking results that enhance your natural smile and help you look years younger using Botox treatments. Botox is a temporary solution to reducing the appearance of fine lines, frown lines, and crows feet. Results typically last about 6 months and can be adjusted at each of your biannual dental health exams.

  1. Professional Teeth Whitening

For patients who have healthy teeth and a well-balanced bite, a simple professional teeth whitening procedure can make a drastic difference in the appearance of their smile. Professional teeth whitening can takes years off of the appearance of the smile in as a little as one hour. AH Smiles offers patients the option of a take-home whitening kit for a more gradual result or ZOOM! in office whitening for more immediate results.

  1. Stress Relief & Nutrition 

Taking care of your mental and physical health can help you enjoy better oral health, and vice versa. Your oral health is directly linked to your overall well being. Eating well and managing stress can help keep your teeth and gums healthy. A diet high in fiber and low in sugar can help keep your smile looking its best and reduce your risk of secondary systemic disease. Patients who eat well are less likely to develop gum disease, cardiovascular disease, tooth loss, and diabetes.

  1. Preventative Care & Oral Hygiene

Practicing preventative dental health care and good at home oral hygiene are essential for keeping your smile looking young. Brushing well twice a day and flossing at least once a day helps to remove debris and bacteria from your teeth and gums. Patients who maintain a high standard of at home hygiene are less prone to decay, tooth loss and gum disease. Be sure to brush well and if you have any questions on improving your technique, never hesitate to ask your dental hygienist or Dr. Engelberg.
