Cosmetic Dentistry Aftercare

The term cosmetic dentistry encompasses many different treatments. Patients of Wagner Dentistry in Summerlin and Las Vegas Area, NV can turn to us for everything from whitening to porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges and even dental implants. Any of these treatments have special aftercare, and so we offer these cosmetic dentistry aftercare tips to help all patients who have enjoyed such smile improvements.


It is easy to think of cosmetic dentistry aftercare as a complex matter, but we tell most of our patients that it boils down to a few key behaviors and choices:


As your cosmetic dentist, we will review the best methods for cleaning your teeth and gums once your cosmetic treatments are done. Whether it is switching the type of toothpaste you use to adjusting the way you floss, we can go over what it will take to take care of your new smile. We also encourage patients to have twice annual exams and cleanings to ensure that all of their cosmetic treatments are in good condition.


We always encourage our patients to learn as much as possible about the treatments we provide, and how to care for them afterward. This has to include discussions about their lifestyles. For instance, if a patient is a frequent smoker, we have to warn them of the long term consequences this can have on oral health. We also talk about dietary choices, and this is because some hard foods, staining foods, and even some chewy foods can damage your cosmetic dentistry.


Are you a nail biter, pencil chewer, tooth grinder or clench your teeth, or someone who does a lot of rough sports? If so, we need to discuss the ideal aftercare with you as well. Night or sports guards are a commonly used appliance if you grind teeth or play sports. If you are a nail biter or someone who uses their teeth in ways that they shouldn’t we discourage such habits as these too can harm the dental work done.

As your dentist in Summerlin, we put your oral health and well-being as a priority. We build your beautiful smile on a foundation of healthy teeth and gums, but proper cosmetic dentistry aftercare is also important to your best grin.
