Dental Hygiene Tips that Will Make Your Next Visit to the Dentist Worry-Free

Do you frequently avoid going to the dentist’s office because you are worried or anxious about what might your dentist might find? If so, read through the below tips and learn how to take on your next dental appointment confident and stress-free.

 

Brush, Floss, and Rinse

When it comes to keeping your smile healthy, the best thing you can do is brush, floss, and rinse regularly. Not only will this prevent tooth decay and gum disease, it will also toughen up your gums and prevent sensitivity or pain on the day of your appointment. For the best results, be sure to brush your teeth two times per day, avoid brushing teeth too hard or too softly, replace your toothbrush at regular intervals, and rinse after flossing with a fluoride wash.

 

Avoid Products that Damage Your Teeth and Gums

Keep your smile as white and clean as possible by staying away from foods and beverages that are hard on tooth enamel or tend to stain the teeth. Be sure to avoid tobacco products of any kind, as these can cause gingivitis or a recurrence of gum disease symptoms.

 

Don’t Skip Appointments!

Prevent excessive plaque and tartar buildup by keeping your dentist’s appointments regular. No matter how diligent you are following the aforementioned tactics, there are still hard to reach parts of your smile that may be difficult for you to properly clean. A dentist can target these sites and remove what you cannot, inhibiting decay. Regular checkups will also allow doctors to catch any signs of a problem in its earliest stages, making any necessary treatment far less anxiety-inducing than it could have been.

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei Providing Porcelain Tooth Onlays and Inlays

Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei is providing smile makeovers for clients who have teeth that are crooked, chipped or have unsightly gaps between their teeth. Porcelain  onlays and inlays are a popular restorative dental procedure used to repair chipped, crooked or gapped teeth by repairing damaged teeth with a hard, durable covering.

Porcelain tooth onlays and inlays are tooth coverings made from porcelain (or a resin composite) at Dr. Wei’s dental lab. They are constructs to fit perfectly over damaged teeth and give patients a complete “Smile Makeover.” Porcelain tooth onlays and inlays look like natural teeth, last for decades or a lifetime and provide a bright, white smile.

“Porcelain tooth onlays and inlays are a durable and natural-looking solution to repairing damaged teeth,” stated Dr. Michael J. Wei. “I love working with porcelain because the material is perfect for repairing teeth, is very durable and last a very long time and it looks as natural as my patients real teeth.”

 

Benefits of Porcelain Dental Onlays and Inlays

Porcelain onlays and inlays look completely natural and can improve your smile by:

    * Repairing small cracks or chips,

    * Closing unsightly gaps and spaces between teeth,

    * Making teeth more even and uniform,

    * Teeth whitening for teeth with severe discoloration or dullness.

Dr. Michael J. Wei Review: Very Professional

Dr. Wei,

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for all the dental work that you did for my wife and I.  You and your staff were very professional, courteous, and thorough.  In the past, I've been very reluctant about seeing a dentist, but you helped to ease my fears and make this experience as comfortable as possible.

Some of my friends and coworkers thought I was strange that I would drive over 1 hour to see a dentist, but from my perspective it was well worth it for the type of service that you are offering.
