At the beginning of the procedure, the hygienist will examine the current state of your teeth and your overall oral health. This helps them determine the next steps and identify what needs to change to make way for a happier healthier smile. Upon completing the evaluation, feedback will be given which typically involves recommending changes to hygiene and diet tweaks. Don’t panic! This doesn’t mean a complete transformation. A few moderate tweaks to your diet are all it takes to improve the look of your smile.
The hygienist begins to remove any dark stubborn stains and plaque with special fluoride that you can just can’t get rid of with a toothbrush or flossing. Once your mouth is clean, liquid will be provided to rinse out your mouth, leaving your mouth fresh and healthy. Expect the appointment to last a minimum time of 30 minutes.
