Cosmetic Changes: Once They’re Here, Are They Here To Stay?

You may ask yourself when you’re having serious thoughts about committing to any type of cosmetic dentistry whether it’s going to be worth the effort because you wonder if the results will last. While we would love to say that any cosmetic treatment you choose will provide you with results that never fade or change and remain as-they-are for life, the truth is, they’re more of an enhancement to your natural smile. Just like your natural teeth, they are at the mercy of the attention you give them, the foods you eat, and more. So, take a stroll through the details to find out just how to get the most mileage out of the improvements you receive from our Cleveland, TX team!

Results Last When You Take Good Care Of Your Smile

When you take excellent care of your smile (it’s much more basic than it sounds), the cosmetic dentistry treatments you receive will last much longer. While cosmetic changes don’t remain in perfect condition forever (just like your natural, untreated teeth), they can remain looking lovely for years and years, if not decades! It’s just a matter of the following:

  • Keep your teeth safe and ultimately, healthy and clean, with checkups and cleanings at our practice twice a year
  • Keep your smile safe and clean at home by brushing two times every day
  • Keep that smile nice and clean (and your cosmetic treatments safe) when you floss daily

Natural Wear And Tear Will Still (Slowly) Impact Your Smile

We often mention to patients who ask about discoloration that teeth go through natural wear and tear. So, even with optimal care, you can still end up with some darkening or other staining. This is still going to be the truth after you receive cosmetic dentistry. You’ll still be eating and drinking and speaking, etc., every day, so your teeth will still experience minor changes over the course of time. Fortunately, when you keep up with care, as mentioned, wear and tear occurs much more slowly.

You Can Always Touch Up

Remember that just because the results of your cosmetic dentistry treatment may not look identical to the initial results as they do in 10 years, there’s something you can do about that: You can touch them up! You can revisit us. Maintaining a beautiful smile is always possible and easier than you might think.
