With the arrival of the new year, you may look forward to making resolutions that will improve your overall well-being. It can be beneficial to also consider your oral health when thinking about your wellness goals.

Your oral health can influence the rest of your well-being. Plus, the appearance of your smile can play a major role in your overall confidence. Your dentist can help you determine your priorities when it comes to your smile and determine the best way to achieve your goals.

Schedule a dental consultation to start your smile enhancement journey. You can also read on to discover three examples of oral health resolutions that can help you get the smile of your dreams this year.

Make Oral Health Resolutions

Prioritize Smile Self-Care

Balancing your personal and professional lives can be stressful. And you may find it difficult to remember to make time for yourself. When you think about how to take care of yourself this year, you should also set aside time for your smile.

Practicing good oral hygiene will keep your teeth strong and better able to resist serious dental problems. But these efforts can also serve as a prime opportunity for self-care.

Flossing every day and brushing your teeth in the morning and evening will allow you to feel confident in the health and appearance of your smile. So make sure you resolve to stick to a consistent and thorough oral hygiene regimen this year.

Plan to Use Your Renewed Dental Insurance Benefits

The start of a new calendar year also marks the renewal of dental insurance benefits for many policies. Your dental insurance plan will usually cover two routine dental cleanings and oral exams per year. These appointments serve as crucial preventative oral health care so that you can preserve the look and feel of your smile.

You can talk to your dentist during these appointments about other types of dental treatments that you can receive under your annual maximum. Your dental insurance can also cover certain dental work that can enhance and restore your oral health. Learn more by calling your dentist today.

Consider Cosmetic Dental Treatment

If you feel unhappy about the way that your smile appears, you could suffer a major blow to your self-esteem. This can then affect other aspects of your life. You can address aesthetic concerns in your smile with help from your dentist. They can evaluate your unique smile and determine a personalized treatment plan to accomplish your smile goals with cosmetic dentistry.

Start your smile enhancement journey as soon as possible by booking a consultation today. Then you can work with your budget and your schedule to reach your goals for your smile as soon as possible.

Your dentist can let you know what to expect from cosmetic dental treatment, including how many appointments you may need to finish the process, during this consult. For instance, dental bonding can be finished within one session at your dentist’s office. But you may need three or more total appointments to complete porcelain veneer treatment.
