Many people get quite excited about getting their teeth whitened, and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, but the same excitement ceases to exist when it comes to fixing cavities and other procedures necessary for your oral health.

As cosmetic dentists in Newcastle, we have had many patients come in who want cosmetic dentistry work done but whose oral health requires help. We must fix any underlying issues or infections before we begin on any cosmetic procedures.

While it is tempting to spend your money on teeth that look good, what is most important is your oral health.

What Conditions May Cause A Delay To A Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure?

Unfortunately, there are quite a few conditions that could delay you from getting cosmetic dentistry work done. That’s why it’s important to get a consultation before booking a procedure. The good news is that most conditions can be fixed within a few weeks, and then you can get back to your desired cosmetic work.

Conditions that may cause a delay in your cosmetic dentistry procedure of choice include:

  • Abscess
  • Gum infections
  • Severe sensitivity
  • Rotten teeth

At Newcastle City Dental, we believe in a healthy foundation for all of our cosmetic procedures, to ensure longevity and a healthy smile that lasts!

Filling Those Cavities First

One of the most common delays for a cosmetic procedure is probably cavities. Cavities are very common in general, and most people may not even realise that they have them. Cavities are a form of decay and should be treated effectively before any cosmetic procedures are performed.

Cavities damage the enamel of your teeth and cause a build-up of oral bacteria. It’s best to have this bacteria removed and any holes filled before you embark on any other dental work.

Once your dental health is in order, we can start working on your winning smile!
