It’s the start of a new year, which for many of us means we jumped head-first into our resolutions. Resolutions serve as personal goals help keep us on track in our pursuit of bettering ourselves and symbolize a fresh start along with the brand new year. Some popular resolutions include getting healthier, learning new things, and being a better person. While these are all great resolutions to have, do you have any resolutions for your oral health?

Some of resolutions for a better smile might be to get a whiter smile to match the new, healthier you. You can kick up your at-home oral hygiene routine and be better about going to the dentist every six months.  You can even kick it up a notch and go all out by setting a goal of transforming your smile into the one you’ve always dreamed of. 

Restorative Dentistry

If your oral health and appearance has taken a hit over the years, you’re not alone. Cavities and gum disease are common dental ailments. Lost teeth and teeth that are crooked or chipped can also occur. Restorative dentistry is a form of dentistry that “restores” or brings back the beautiful, properly functioning smile you had before. Restoring your smile to its former glory is the most common and affordable way to not just get back the beautiful appearance of your smile, but to make your mouth healthier and better functioning again. Crowns, fillings, implants, bridges, dentures and braces are common elements of restorative dentistry.

At Hazzouri Dental we offer restorative dentistry in Scranton, PA in addition to cleanings and routine dental examinations so patients can once again have that healthy, beautiful smile they can be proud to show-off. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is more about enhancing the appearance of your smile. This type of dentistry is often not covered by dental insurance, making it more of an investment than restorative dentistry. Veneers, inlays, onlays, teeth whitening and lip and facial enhancements are common cosmetic dental procedures. 

Enhancing your smile and facial appearance is powerful in that it can provide an immediately noticeable transformation. A beautiful smile can boost self-esteem, confidence, outlook and well-being. While you may think that cosmetic dentistry is all about enhancing the appearance of teeth and gums, it may be surprising to know that it also includes lip enhancements and other facial enhancements. These elements are interconnected to the mouth. A bright-white, flawless smile will improve your appearance, but a perfect smile combined with plump lips or a firmer, lifted face will best complete a full oral makeover. 

The lip enhancements in Scranton, PA at Hazzouri Dental are done by our experienced cosmetic dental professionals who strive to give you the best look possible.

The start of the new year is a great opportunity to think about maintaining or enhancing your oral health and the appearance of your smile. While better teeth cleaning is the foundational starting point for a healthier and more beautiful smile, restorative and cosmetic dentistry can go a step further in giving you a healthier and more beautiful smile.
