    It’s that time of year: the time when we all reflect on our habits and goals, and set some resolutions! As you move into 2019, our Cheney dentists encourage you to set some attainable and health-boosting goals for your smile. There are a number of things that you can do to make sure you enjoy your best smile ever this upcoming year.

  • Take a look at your at-home dental routine
  • The first thing to consider is whether there are any tweaks or upgrades you can make to your daily oral hygiene routine. Maybe it’s time to switch out some old tools, like toothbrushes or waterpiks. Or, perhaps you’d benefit from incorporating a mouth rinse, or specific formulation of toothpaste; talk to your dentist to learn more!

  • Seek treatment for any lingering oral health issues right away
  • Don’t carry existing oral infections or dental damage into the new year; now is the perfect time to give your smile a clean slate. Treatments like custom crowns, dental bonding, and veneers all deliver results quickly and affordably.

  • Schedule your semi-annual cleanings
  • The American Dental Association recommends that patients of all ages complete professional cleanings at least every six months. It’s so easy to fall behind on this schedule, so, work with your dental team to get these semi-annual check-ups on the books right now.

  • Commit to drinking more water
  • If there’s one simple habit that can help revitalize your smile, it’s drinking more water. Water is a much healthier choice for your dental health than juices, coffee, tea, and soft drinks. Additionally, when you are well-hydrated, your body is able to produce plenty of saliva, which works to neutralize bacteria and re-mineralize enamel.

    As always, our Cheney dentists are here to give you any additional information and guidance that you may need. Give us a call to get started!

    Professional dental cleanings

    No matter how you choose to move forward with your smile, the first step will be to undergo a thorough professional cleaning. Many people are impressed by how much better their smiles look and feel after finishing a professional check-up and cleaning.

    Tooth whitening treatments

    Topical dental whitening treatments minimize existing stains, and can lighten a patient’s smile by up to 6 shades after just one session. This treatment is completely non-invasive and comfortable. Plus, it can be repeated in future sessions to intensify results further.

    Dental bonding

    This is one of the most versatile and convenient options available in the dental world today. Using dental resin, Dr. Collins can fix cracked or chipped enamel, resurface unsightly teeth, and even close gaps in your smile. The entire dental bonding process is complete in just one appointment; this is truly the fastest way to achieve a smile transformation.

    Laser gum tissue reshaping

    Using dental lasers, our dental team minimizes overgrown gum tissue, in order to give the entire smile a more balanced and perfected appearance.

    Porcelain veneers

    These individually crafted, exceptionally thin restorations are permanently bonded to the patient’s natural teeth in order to transform the patient’s appearance. Veneers are always customized, in size shape, and color, to look natural and function optimally for the unique patient.

    As you can see, there are many options for patients who want to improve their smiles in a short period of time. Give our Cheney dentists a call, or use the Contact Us page on our site to reach out to our team!
