You may not even have any idea that this is the case … but you may have some ideas about what your smile is that aren’t at all accurate. How has this happened, you wonder? Well, sometimes you make assumptions. Sometimes you hear something and just accept it as fact. Our Corona, CA team reminds you that it happens to everyone! The happy news here is that your Corona dentist is aware of this phenomenon (and aware of many common misconceptions patients carry with them). To ensure you’ve got a clear understanding of what your smile is … and what your smile is not … it’s time for a quick infusion of possibly surprising facts!

It’s Not Opaque!

We know. It seems like your teeth are solidly, opaquely white. Or, at least that may be what you always thought as a kid and, unless you’ve ever taken a closer look in the mirror, you may not have ever realized it! However, they’re translucent. It’s an important distinction to recognize first, because it may shock you to catch a close-up of your smile otherwise and, second, because it helps you better understand your teeth and the way translucent treatments (like veneers) work to provide natural-looking results.

It’s Not Immune To Problems

You may have heard someone mention that a very, little, tiny percentage of our population just doesn’t develop cavities. This may be true! However, even if that applied to you, it wouldn’t mean that your smile is immune to problems. Once you take decay off the list, there are still many others concerns that can crop up, when you’re not taking wonderful care of your smile, from gingivitis to functional issues like TMJ disorder. Your Corona dentist reminds you: Your smile requires your attention!

It’s Not Hard To Protect!

Your Corona dentist reminds you that it’s actually not hard to protect your oral health. Talk with us about preventive care the next time we see you and you will quickly realize that it’s all you need to promote excellent smile health!
