Getting that Perfect Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Pregnancy can cause havoc to your teeth’s health. A lot of times, the hormonal changes a woman’s body undergoes can weaken her teeth. When this does happen, it is always best to seek the help of a dentist who can bring back your teeth’s health and restore it to the way it was before pregnancy, or maybe even improve on it.

Such was the case with my daughter whose gums were affected by her recent pregnancy. Our family doctor recommended that she go to a dentist to have the condition of her teeth checked. Unfortunately, her original dentist had moved out of state so we had to search for a new dentist. By chance, we came across a Sugar land cosmetic dentist whose office address was accessible to my daughter.

A quick call to the phone number provided on the website resulted in an immediate appointment. It turns out that the hormonal changes in her body had caused a build-up of plaque which is a common side-effect of the surge of estrogen that a pregnant woman’s body goes through during pregnancy. If left unattended, this plaque build-up can cause a lot of damage to the woman’s gums. Gingivitis is the most common condition that pregnant women suffer from during pregnancy. The cosmetic dentist immediately removed the plaque and gave my daughter excellent tips for caring for her teeth while nursing her baby. I was so impressed that I scheduled an appointment for myself as well.
