Are You Happy With Your Smile?

April 28, 2015 | Posted Education

Your smile is often the first thing people notice when they meet you.  A great smile gives you confidence.  If you are currently not satisfied with your smile, talk to your dental professional about transforming your smile.
Has that rotated tooth or stained tooth always bothered you? Does it make you feel self-conscious?  Smile makeovers can correct: missing teeth, stained teeth or fillings, misaligned teeth and broken teeth.   Smile makeovers can be a simple correction or a detailed treatment plan.
Changing your smile is individual and different for each person.  Treatment may include a combination of whitening, bonding, orthodontics, crowns, bridges, veneers and/or implants.  We want you to have a straight white beautiful smile.
Why shouldn’t you show off your biggest smile?  Discuss your options with your dentist at the Rideau Dental Centre.  Call us at 613-230-7475.

Dentistry can be very expensive.  People often make the assumption that insurance will cover their treatment or will give them the best dental care possible.  Unfortunately that is not the case.
Patients should look at their mouth as an investment.  Your mouth needs daily care, maintenance and the occasional upgrade.  Would you buy an expensive car and never take care of it!  Some mouths need more attention that others do; it’s just the way it is.
There are many things you can do to spend less time and money in the dental chair:
·Brush twice a day and floss once everyday!
·Don’t smoke.
·Wear your night guard.
·Wear a sports guard.
·Use fluoride.
·Visit your hygienist and dentist regularly.  Of course this can cost you money but being preventative and finding things early is cheaper than letting it go.
