Consistent Healthy Teeth

 Healthy Teeth

Dr. Mansour Zakhor, a cosmetic and emergency dentist to the stars with office in Westwood, advises everyone to be consistent with dental care-whether they have natural teeth or wearing veneers. For example, people think that brushing alone is already enough to maintain the health of their teeth or their porcelain veneers. That is far from a complete and thorough oral care. Other requirements of preserving the health of one’s teeth are flossing everyday, gargling with mouthwash, frequent dental check-ups and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Smoking And Other Modern Lifestyles

Yes, a healthy lifestyle can really make a tremendous difference. However, it is so easy to say, yet it is so difficult to maintain because it requires discipline. And it requires consistent healthy behavior.

Let us take smokers who have porcelain veneers as an example. Many smokers think that after the application of veneers, their teeth-stained problems have already been solved. Fine, porcelain veneers are made of special materials and ingredients that can be highly resistant of stains such as nicotine and tar. It can last for more than 10 years if well managed. Let me repeat that, if well managed, veneers can last long. However, smoking will still stain porcelain veneers over time. It will shorten the time of the veneer’s performance. Smoking will not only turn your teeth yellow, but it will also turn your teeth dark brown. Furthermore, smoking can cause bacterial plaque which can lead to other diseases such as gum disease, which when progresses can cause tooth loss. To all smokers, if you want a complete smile, toss your lighters and cigarettes away. Moreover, with modern lifestyles, drinking coffee and gulping red wine at night are now part of the American culture. Soda is the new water. Dessert is the new antidepressant. And the adverse risk to the health of our teeth becomes higher and more probable.
