Basic Dental Hygiene

Our foremost goal at the Colonial Dental Group in Glenview, Illinois is to make sure you have healthy teeth, gums, and bite. Dental health is the foundation of dental attractiveness and before we can do cosmetic enhancements of your smile, we need to establish solid dental health.

The best way to maintain the health of your teeth is to keep up with basic dental hygiene. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day (preferably after each meal), flossing daily, and scheduling routine check-ups will go a long way towards keeping your mouth healthy and your smile bright.

To maintain the appearance of your cosmetic dentistry work like porcelain veneers, porcelain fillings, and dental bonding other things you can do are:

  • Avoid large amounts of staining agents like cola drinks and coffee
  • Make sure to not clench or grind your teeth
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects like pens or ice
  • Avoid abrasive ("whitening") toothpastes and brushes that are too harsh on your gums

If you are considering cosmetic dentistry and live in the Glenview or Chicago, Illinois area, please call or email us to schedule your initial cosmetic dentistry consultation today with our experienced dentists.
