Here at Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we approach all your dental needs from two separate angles—what we can do in our dental practice and what you can do at home.
For example, tooth whitening and correcting discoloration can be treated in our office or at home. Here in the office there are safe and effective methods for brightening yellowed or stained tooth enamel. At-home whitening methods are also safe and effective and sometimes more affordable.
Additionally, we advise you regarding food and drink choices that can affect your whitened smile. Be aware of staining culprits such as coffee, tea, tobacco and soda. We understand that eliminating these items altogether is not an easy lifestyle change. Nor do we expect it.
Mindfulness and precaution can make a big difference. Rinsing your mouth out with water after drinking a dark or sugary drink can cut down on the contact your teeth have with it and help neutralize the acids. Prolonged exposure to sugar can lead to buildup of plaque and tartar and prolonged exposure to staining substances can negate the results of teeth whitening.
If you are interested in making improvements to your smile and creating a more confident appearance for your professional career or personal relationships, please pick up the phone and contact the extraordinary staff at Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today 817-274-7875. Dr. Stephen Ratcliff, DDS, takes pride in providing warm and friendly care and expertise when treating patients.
Come discover the personal attention with porcelain veneers, the patient and steady hand with Invisalign clear braces, the wise and thorough instruction relating to dental implants. Once you’ve scheduled a consultation, expect expert guidance that will make your daily oral care and lifestyle choices productive and meaningful.
When it comes to hygiene and healthy teeth we are a practice that wants to see you as little as possible. (It’s not that we don’t love you—we just want you to have a healthy smile!) If we only see you twice a year for regular checkups then we’ve done our job. Check out our website at https://www.myarlingtoncosmeticdentist.com/ or come in for an evaluation and recommendations.
Dr. Ratcliff provides the full spectrum of dental services from family dentistry to restorative dentistry to cosmetic dentistry.
