Surprising tips from your Geelong dental practice

September 15, 2015

There is no such thing as the “perfect” smile.

We hear people on a daily basis ask us “what is the perfect smile” and “how can I get it”.  As dentists, we can categorically tell you that there is no such thing as “the” perfect smile. Just as every person is different, every smile is different and the perfect smile for you is likely to be very different from the perfect smile for your neighbour or best friend. At our Geelong dental practice we spend time getting to know you, your likes and dislikes about your smile and your teeth, and together we determine what kind of smile best suits YOU.

A health smile and mouth is our number one goal.

The health of your mouth and smile is much more important than a perfect smile. At Dentistry of Excellence we want to ensure that your smile is one that you love, but just as importantly we want to ensure that your smile will last a lifetime. At your regular visits to our dental practice in Geelong we will monitor the health of your teeth, gums and mouth, recommending preventative measures and care where required as well as carrying out procedures to keep you in optimal dental health.

Your at-home dental care is just as important as your regular visits to the dentist.

You might be great at keeping your regular six-monthly appointments at our dental practice and you might think this is a great thing. Trust us, it is! However, if you don’t practice good dental care at home you are increasing your chances of suffering from common and highly preventable dental diseases such as dental decay and gum disease.  A daily brushing and flossing routine is vital to maintain good oral hygiene, a great smile, and to make the most of your regular dental check-ups.
