With the start of a new year, many people make resolutions about things they want to improve in the coming year.
Maybe you want to eat a little better, workout more, or run a marathon. All of those things have to do with your health, which is a good reason to make some resolutions that include your smile as well.
When you have a beautiful, healthy smile, it’s good for your mental and physical health. A nice smile can give you confidence, while strong teeth allow you to eat a variety of foods to fuel your marathon training.
Our team at Newingham Dental Center would be happy to help you with those efforts regarding your smile. Today, we are offering five suggested resolutions that can be good for your oral health in 2019.
To accomplish them, call our Birmingham, MI dentist office at 248-972-8720 to make an appointment.
1. To Straighten Your Smile
Many adults wore braces as children but didn’t wear their retainer like they should have. Many adults also wish they’d had some kind of orthodontic care when they were younger.
Regardless of the reason, you may be among the many people who would like to correct crooked or crowded teeth, fix bite alignment issues, or close gaps in your smile. You could be the next patient to use Invisalign aligners to create your better, straighter smile. We’ve seen what they’ve done for countless patients already. Find out what they could do for you.
2. To Treat Your Broken Tooth
You may not have expected to break your tooth when you bit into a nut or a handful of popcorn, but it happens. You only have to be distracted at the wrong moment for a softball to break a tooth, too.
You may have a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth for a variety of reasons. Fortunately, you can repair your tooth with a CEREC dental crown by visiting us. In a single visit to our office, we can reshape your tooth, make your crown, and bond it in place before you leave.
3. To Clean Your Stained Smile
If you like to drink coffee, tea, soft drinks, or the occasional adult beverage, your teeth will become stained. If you enjoy pasta, pizza, burritos, and other foods with colorful ingredients, your teeth will become stained.
And if you use tobacco, those stains will form even faster.
If you want to restore your pearly white smile, then you should ask about our professional teeth whitening. In about an hour, you could see a big change in your smile with Zoom whitening at our office. If you prefer, we also offer take-home whitening kits that will improve your smile in a matter of a few weeks.
4. To Replace Missing Teeth
Lost teeth are more common than many people realize. Likewise, many people are not aware of how quickly a single missing tooth can turn into multiple lost teeth.
No matter how many teeth you need to replace, Dr. Newingham is ready to help. Dental implants can be used to secure crowns, bridges, and dentures so you can loose and feel like you have a full set of healthy teeth once again.
5. To Prevent Oral Health Problems
Ideally, you won’t need to repair or replace any of your teeth. By being proactive about brushing, flossing, and getting preventive dental care, you can greatly reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other issues.
