Did you know that odontophobia (an overwhelming fear of going to the dentist) affects more than 10 percent of American adults? Did you also know that many of these fears are perpetuated by our own misguided untruths?
It is true. And it is partially to be blame for the fact that a mere 100 million Americans neglected to go to the dentist last year. Regardless if you are one of the ten percent or simply do not have the time, here a few pointers on making your next visit to the best cosmetic dentists or family cosmetic dentistry clinics a pleasant one.
1. Be diligent.
Before you begin your pursuit to find a cosmetic dentist, consider this. Most dental issues or cosmetic dental surgery (excluding the need for clear invisible braces which can be a necessity) can often be thwarted by proper dental care. That means twice daily brushinng, flossing, and rinsing.
2. You are what you drink.
Everybody knows the perils of too much sugar, but did you also know that your morning coffee and evening wine can do a number on your teeth, too? Not only can your drinks discolor your teeth, but the acid can erode and cause premature tooth decay. The acid from lemons, in fact, is almost as dangerous to your enamel as battery acid! So, think twice before putting lemons in your water.
3. Find a cosmetic dentist or family dentist you trust.
Of course no matter how diligent you are, the need for veneers, dental implants, or tooth crowns will still rear their ugly heads. As such, find a cosmetic dentist that comes with recommendations, is in close proximity to your home, and with whom you have a good and comfortable rapport.
