family dentist Alexandria

Looking for a dentist because you’re losing the battle with plaque build-up, chipped teeth, tooth pain, stains, or tooth decay? This post from Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry and your Alexandria dentist offers three steps to take before you arrive at our office for a consultation.

The state of your mouth is essential to your well-being both emotionally and physically. Everyone wants to make a winning impression when they smile or speak. We understand that.

The look, the odor, the feel, and functionality of your biting surfaces are so important to your everyday experience that we recognize our critical role in finding answers to these troubles.

After you schedule a consultation with our team, please take a moment to review the following checklist for a productive appointment experience:

1. Identify your hygiene routine and gaps in technique or consistency.
When do you brush your teeth? Do you floss? How often? If not, why? We can take a look at your habits and establish what is holding you back, if anything.

2. Describe pain or problem areas throughout your mouth.
Persistent or intermittent? Sharp or dull? Triggered by hot or cold? Living with pain is unneeded with the technology and expertise available these days. Usually there are manageable solutions to seemingly big pains. Let us address all your aches.

3. Identify and explain what you want your smile to look like.
If you can describe your ideal smile, we can look at how to attain it. There are numerous possibilities for a phenomenal smile redesign as well as dental maintenance procedures. Cosmetic dentistry runs the gamut from teeth whitening to veneers to dental implants.

When it comes to looking for a dentist in Alexandria or the surrounding communities, please know that you will be in capable hands at the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry. We are prepared for questions about porcelain veneers and other cosmetic dentistry services. Make an appointment today.
