Dental Hygiene & Teeth Cleaning

Dental hygiene and teeth cleaning are part of the general dentistry services that we offer our patients. If you have restorations, such as porcelain veneers, it is important to have your teeth cleaned by a dentist or hygienist who has the training and experience in aesthetic porcelain restorations so that they are not damaged during cleaning.

Dental Hygiene

Good dental hygiene at home helps to protect your dental health and the longevity of cosmetic dentistry solutions, such as teeth whitening.

Even though you learned the basics as a child and have years of experience, we may be able to teach you a better way to care for your teeth at home. There are many common mistakes that do more harm than good, and we can help you avoid them and get the most out of your brushing and flossing routine.

Many of the products you find in stores also do more harm than good. For instance, some whitening tooth pastes contain abrasives that damage tooth enamel, and actually make your teeth more susceptible to staining. We can discuss the products you currently use and help you to choose the healthiest products for your teeth and gums.

Teeth Cleaning

Brushing and flossing at home must be supplemented with regular teeth cleaning at your dentist’s office. Cleaning prevents the buildup of tartar, keeping your teeth stay whiter and brighter, and preventing gum disease.

Regular cleanings are the best way to detect dental problems early, so we can treat them before they cause major damage. This means less invasive dental procedures, better dental health and less time and expense. Regular cleanings keep your smile beautiful and they can save your teeth.

We also offer deep cleaning, or root planing, to patients who have gone too long without a cleaning and have tartar deep below the gum line causing gum disease. Deep cleaning can remove very dark tartar build-up, which looks like tooth decay and causes the gums to recede.

Teeth Cleaning and Restorations

Cleaning teeth with restorations requires special training and experience, to prevent damage to your restorations. The dental hygienists at Integrated Dental Aesthetics are specially trained to work with all types of dental restorations, including porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Our dental hygienists have a gentle touch and an understanding of cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry, as well as general dentistry.
