Dental hygiene is a vital aspect of your overall health.

While your dental health plays an integral role in your general health, it is especially important during pregnancy.

This is attributed to an increased surge in hormones, which make your gums more sensitive to irritants in plaque.

A regular visit to a dentist, even if only twice a year, can be overwhelming for many people. As such, they opt for brushing and flossing their teeth every day in an effort to avoid those visits. If you’re one of these people, it’s important to realize that brushing and flossing alone is not enough to safeguard yourself from costly dental problems. Deep dental cleanings are essential. A dentist or dental hygienist may perform this procedure.

Dental Veneers are an important cosmetic dentistry procedure. They help cover damaged and discolored teeth, bringing back the perfect smile that you’ve always wanted. Many people wonder how long veneers last. Veneers can last upwards of ten years. This lifespan depends on various factors, such as how you take care of them.
