Brushing and flossing regularly removes food particles that can lead to the development of dental plaque. Dental plaque is the bacteria-ridden film that can cover your teeth. The bacteria release acids, which wear away the enamel of your teeth and encourage the development of cavities. You can reduce your dental plaque by maintaining a good oral care routine, seeing your dentist regularly, and limiting your intake of sugar.
For more tips on fighting dental plaque, watch this video. The dentist in this video explains which substance can form if dental plaque is not removed. She also recommends dental sealants to help protect your teeth.

If you’re dissatisfied with your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist about having a smile makeover. Cosmetic dentistry procedures allow you to restore a youthful appearance, boost your overall oral health, and improve the function of your teeth. Here are some of the procedures that you might include in a smile makeover:
Many factors can contribute to discolored teeth, and whitening toothpastes can’t remove every stain. Many people choose in-office tooth whitening procedures at a cosmetic dentist’s office for immediate, drastic improvements. In-office tooth whitening can be done within an hour, particularly if you choose laser bleaching or the Zoom whitening system.
If you have chipped, cracked, or otherwise misshapen teeth, your cosmetic dentist might recommend dental bonding. This procedure is also ideal for those who wish to camouflage amalgam fillings. By applying a tooth-colored composite material to the area, a cosmetic dentist can restore the shape of teeth and brighten them at the same time.
Enamel recontouring is a method of reshaping the teeth to restore symmetry and improve the tooth’s surface. This procedure is well-suited to patients with light imperfections, such as small chips. During this quick procedure, your cosmetic dentist uses special instruments to polish your teeth. Enamel recontouring is often paired with other procedures, such as dental bonding or dental veneers, during a smile makeover.
Dental Crown Placement
If your cosmetic dentist recommends dental crowns as part of your smile makeover, you may have a tooth that has become weakened, broken, or worn down. Crowns are also helpful for teeth that are discolored or misshapen, and for teeth that have been badly chipped. A crown is a cap that is placed over the existing tooth for a completely natural look.
Porcelain Veneer Placement
Veneers are thin strips of material that a cosmetic dentist adheres to the front of your teeth. Veneers can fix a range of dental issues, including broken or chipped teeth, gaps between the teeth, and discolored teeth that do not respond to tooth whitening.

Orthodontic treatment enhances the look of your smile by providing straighter and healthier teeth. Invisalign is an ideal alternative to braces that allows you to straighten your teeth without letting anyone know you’re receiving treatment! If you’d like to learn more about Invisalign, schedule an appointment with Dr. Aria Irvani, DDS, at Foothill Ranch Dentist to discuss your treatment options.
How Long Will Treatment Take?
Every case is unique, but the average treatment time with Invisalign is approximately one year. However, only your dentist will be able to tell you exactly how long your treatment will take. Once he has taken measurements of your mouth, he will be able to show you your treatment plan with computer modeling software and develop an accurate treatment timeline.
How Often Will I Need To Visit?
Although treatment with Invisalign means fewer visits to your dentist during treatment, regular checkups to monitor your progress are still needed. Your dentist will develop a unique Invisalign treatment plan for you and discuss how often you will need to visit for checkups.
How Do I Care For My Aligners?
Invisalign aligners are easy to care for; you can remove and clean them every time you brush your teeth. Your dentist will provide instructions on how to keep your aligners in good condition during treatment. Talk to your dentist about your lifestyle—Invisalign aligners should be removed before playing certain sports. If you grind your teeth at night, a special mouth guard may be needed to protect your aligners and your teeth.
Dr. Aria Irvani of Foothill Ranch Dentist is an approved Invisalign provider, offering this unique and comfortable treatment in Lake Forest.
