Your General Dentist Provides Care to Enhance your Smile and Oral Health
- Posted on: Jan 15 2016
It is often your smile that makes the biggest immediate impression on others. According to research, we assess the character of others within mere seconds of meeting, which means we rely largely on appearance to form our first impression. Based on the appearance of our teeth, we may be perceived as well-educated, healthy, friendly, successful, honest, or the very opposite.
Your Wellesley Dentist Cares
Dr. Sherman and his team believe that every person deserves to feel good about their oral health and their smile. Our patients benefit from focused general and cosmetic dentistry treatments that bring out the very best in their smiles.
The basis of oral health is prevention and early intervention, which we stress in our office. The entire body benefits when teeth and gums receive optimal care. In addition to providing services such as cleanings, exams, and restorations, we also help patients identify areas in which their home regimen can be enhanced for optimal wellness.
The goal of oral care is to minimize the effects of ever-present oral bacteria. Steps that achieve this goal include brushing and flossing as recommended for individual need. Everyone is encouraged to brush morning and night. Flossing should be done daily. In some cases, however, a patient may receive the greatest benefit from brushing after every meal and incorporating an anti-bacterial mouthwash into their daily routine. Dr. Sherman supports each patient toward their healthiest smile with custom-tailored dental care.
Addressing Cosmetic Concerns
Even a healthy smile may fall short in the area of natural beauty. Cosmetic flaws can be immensely concerning because they are all but impossible to hide from the world. Our patients need not worry about feeling self-conscious about their smile. Cosmetic dental treatments can correct just about every concern.
A quick smile makeover may be achieved with:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Porcelain crowns are bridges
- Tooth replacement treatment
We understand that both beauty and health are important to you. Although we are in the business of caring for other people’s teeth, we want these things for ourselves as well. When you visit our Wellesley practice, you are in good hands. Only after we get to know you and your concerns and goals will we recommend a treatment plan to get you where you want to be. Call (781) 772-1646 to schedule a consultation with your friendly neighborhood dentist.
