Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and invisible braces all impact the appearance of your smile, but the results of these treatments cannot be truly appreciated without excellent oral hygiene and regular preventive care.

The two disciplines are perfect complements, each integral to achieving the desired effect.

Preventive Care Lays the Foundation

Of course each patient is unique, and this applies to everything from the size, shape, and shade of their natural teeth to the alignment of their bite. Some are genetically predisposed to conditions that affect the appearance and health of their teeth and gums.

Different lifestyles, ages, and degrees of overall physical health all influence your smile, as well. This means that two patients who follow exactly the same dental hygiene regimen can have teeth that appear radically different.

It also explains why some patients require cosmetic dentistry to achieve their idea of the perfect smile while others are “born with it,” so to speak.

Sometimes you make decisions that adversely impact the health and appearance of your teeth and gums, such as using tobacco, frequently going to bed without brushing your teeth, or forgoing regular dental exams.

As a result, you may hesitate to schedule an appointment for fear of being reprimanded. We never lecture or scold our patients. Our staff understands that you are more than just your mouth. There’s a person behind that smile, and we want nothing more than to improve the way you look and feel about yourself.

Here, you have options:

  • If your teeth have been stained by aging, smoking, or drinking coffee, you can opt for either a chair side whitening treatment or our take-home teeth whitening kit. Depending on which method you choose, you will enjoy noticeable improvements in a single in-office whitening session, or within a two-week treatment period for home whitening.
  • For teeth that have been chipped or cracked in an accident, or for those with stubborn stains, gaps, and unevenness, we offer porcelain veneers.
  • Invisalign invisible braces gradually straighten teeth that are crowded, unevenly spaced, or slightly angled. You achieve results comparable to those offered by traditional metal braces, but you needn’t worry about wires, brackets, or elastics. When it’s time to eat, you can discretely remove the aligners.

Your Smile: We Perfect, You Protect It

Cosmetic dentistry offers transformations ranging from subtle to dramatic, depending on each patient’s personal vision. However, not even the most powerful whitening formula can protect your teeth against further buildup of plaque and tartar.

Likewise, carefully crafted veneers will maintain their natural appearance for many years, but only if you put forth the effort to care for them. Only you, your toothbrush and floss, and your Sudbury MA dentist can keep your teeth looking clean and brilliant following cosmetic dentistry.
