Summer will be here soon, and that makes this a great time to schedule a dental appointment if you haven’t already.
With the warmer weathers and longer hours of daylight, you’ll have more reasons to be out and about, more reasons to snap photos to share on social media, and (more importantly) more reasons to enjoy being social.
Don’t let preventable dental problems keep you from making the most of this summer. We’ve listed a few reasons you should come see us below. To plan a visit to our general dentist office, call 713-234-6690 to reach Dental Bright in Houston, TX.
1. Enjoy Your Vacation
You’ve had your vacation planned for months. You know exactly what you want to do when you get to your destination — have fun!
Depending on where you are a going that could mean kayaking, golfing, or just relaxing on a beach. Whatever you plan on doing, you don’t want a toothache to spoil your time away from work.
Preventive dentistry can help you stop this from being an issue. During a dental checkup, we can remove plaque and tartar (reducing your risk of tooth decay) or treat any decay you may have before it leads to a more painful problem.
2. Eat What You Want
Many people look forward to dining out with family and friends. Whether you want to enjoy the food at the first cookout of the summer, want to try the new restaurant in your neighborhood, or want to try something new on vacation, you need to be able to bite and chew. If you have a broken, cracked, or decayed tooth, that might be more difficult than it should be.
Getting a dental crown now can restore the function of your teeth (as well as the appearance of your smile) so you can feel good about ordering anything you want or piling your favorite foods on your plate. And since our crowns are made of zirconia, you can trust that they can last for many summers to come.
3. Have A Picture-Worthy Smile
Photos have long been a standard part of summer, but in the age of smartphones, those pictures can be shared almost instantly. You want people to know that you are having fun, but you shouldn’t feel like you have to hide your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry gives you some great ways to boost your confidence. Teeth whitening and bonding are both quick and easy ways to help you feel good about showing off your smile.
4. Stay Active
We know a lot of our patients like to stay active during the summer (and year-round for that matter). Whether you are playing softball for your company team, soccer in a competitive league, or something else, we encourage you to wear an athletic mouthguard. It could be the difference between a sore lip and dental emergency.
A custom-made mouthguard, which we can make at our office, is more comfortable to wear, and it offers better protection than store-bought brands.
