SmileYour pearly whites are often the first thing others notice when developing a first impression.  Cosmetic dental procedures are becoming more and more popular among both men and women today.  We all want a warm, welcoming, beautiful smile that shows confidence.

Learn how to take care of your smile using the following tips from our experts:

Use Non-Abrasive Toothpaste

Veneers, lumineers, and implants are common cosmetic dental procedures among celebrities, but they’re not just for stars anymore. Now, cosmetic dentistry has gone mainstream among the likes of high profile business executives to college aged students and everyone in between.

One of the most important tips to remember when caring for cosmetic dentistry is to use a non-abrasive toothpaste. Many of the dental hygiene products in today’s market contain particles of silica, calcium carbonate or other abrasives, which have jagged particles and can scrape away at the teeth causing damage to the cosmetic enamel.

Help Your Mouth with Xylitol

Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol that reduces dental decay and helps protect the gums. I suggest using a toothpaste that contains xylitol to improve oral health. In addition , chewing gum containing xylitol, is also beneficial. Xylitol is also safe for diabetics.
