You may hear about a particular product, treatment, or something else that is related to your smile care and immediately think that it’s better than everything else.

There are some things that you may say with pride, as you think to yourself, “Yep, this means my smile is perfectly healthy!” However, though they give you some warm fuzzy feelings to announce either to yourself or to others, it’s important to know that many commonly held beliefs about what represents good oral health are not always as accurate as they seem. Consider a few things of the statements you make in regard to your grin that leave you with the impression that your teeth and gums are in pristine condition (when the opposite may be true). Then of course, if you realize it may be time for a visit, come on in to see our Auburn Hills, MI team!
Rather than asking yourself if cosmetic care is necessary, we encourage you to take on a new perspective and to instead ask yourself some other questions that may better assist you in determining whether you are ready. Remember that if you continue to come up against the fact that improving the esthetics of your smile isn’t necessary for your oral health or to be successful in life but you do want it, you’ll likely get stuck in a loop! Instead, if you dig a bit deeper, you can determine whether it’s important and beneficial to you and, as a result, attribute value to particular treatments. Once you realize the impact it might have, you will feel much more ready to contact our Auburn Hills, MI team, so you may see us for personalized smile care.
