Looking After Your Smile Long-Term

Attend dentist and hygienist check-ups to maintain the appearance and condition of your teeth and gums. Lifestyle, wear, and tear can inevitably affect your teeth as you age. However, that doesn’t mean you have to live with stained, chipped, diseased or decayed teeth.

During your dentist check-ups, we can identify whether you require a restoration to fix certain dental issues, and screen for oral cancer and other abnormalities. Regular check-ups are the bedrock of prevention and maintenance. During your check-ups, we will assess your risk factors for specific dental problems and outline how you can alter your lifestyle to reduce them.

Routine hygienist visits are indispensable for removing the plaque and tartar that clings to your teeth (it cannot be removed with brushing and flossing). This type of maintenance not only keeps your teeth stain-free, it reduces bad breath and gives your teeth a more ‘polished’ look and feel.

FAQs

How Often Do Restorations Need To Be Replaced?

Regular smile maintenance check-ups and good at-home care will help to keep restorations like fillings, crowns, veneers, and composite in good condition. Each of these restorations have varying lifespans, which depend on how well you look after them.

How Often Should I See The Dentist And Hygienist For Check-Ups?

We can give you an accurate answer once we have examined the condition of your teeth and gums. Generally speaking, most people should see the dentist and hygienist bi-annually.

How Much Is Smile Maintenance?

We will provide you with all the costs involved with treatment for restorations before going ahead with treatment. To view the cost of a simple check-up, please see our fee guide.
