6 Resolutions For Healthier Teeth This Year

Now that 2022 has come to an end, you may be thinking about what goals you want to accomplish with 2023 ahead of you. The Center for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry wants you to consider making your teeth a priority this year. After all, the health of your teeth and gums is directly linked to your overall health.

Dr. Desiree Yazdan is your premiere Newport Beach provider of comprehensive and cosmetic dentistry and is here to help you achieve all of your 2023 smile goals. Improving your dental health for the new year is achievable with the help of The Center for Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Schedule Your Preventative Care and Cleaning Appointment

Prevention is key when treating dental decay and periodontal disease. Preventative care appointments are recommended at least every six months and include a professional dental cleaning, necessary X-rays, and a dental examination to assess your hard and soft tissues. By maintaining frequent visits, our goal is to help you prevent future dental decay or periodontal disease.

During your visit, we can address decay and periodontal disease in its earliest stages. This enables you to keep your dental work as minimally invasive as possible. If you haven’t scheduled your next preventative care visit, contact our office to book your next checkup with Dr. Yazdan.

Upgrade Your Flossing Routine With a Water Flosser

Flossing is the only way to reach harmful bacteria between your teeth. Leaving this buildup behind after brushing will lead to a gingival infection called periodontal disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss. Flossing every day is recommended daily but what about those difficult-to-floss areas? Like tight teeth or under a fixed bridge?

They come in a variety of sizes from countertop versions to smaller hand-held ones that make flossing easy.  Water flossers effectively clean under bridges as well as around implants and orthodontic brackets.  They also have the ability to reach areas with deeper pockets for those patients with periodontal disease.

Schedule Any Unfinished Treatment

At The Center for Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand that completing all of your dental treatment in one year may be difficult. In these cases, your optimum dental health is a long term but achievable goal.

However, putting your recommended dental treatment off can put you at risk for bigger problems down the road. Treating decay in its earlier stages is recommended to keep restorations minimally invasive. When decay is left untreated and worsens, more of the tooth becomes involved. In these cases, restorations need to be larger and can lead to more invasive procedures or even tooth loss

Whiten Your Teeth This Year

Making a small change to the appearance of your smile can significantly boost your self-esteem and give you the confidence to put your best smile on display. Dr. Yazdan of Newport Beach has three types of whitening treatment options to meet your optimum whitening needs. A customized approach can also include combining these treatments to achieve the best results possible.

Zoom! Whitening is an in-office procedure that whitens your teeth up to eight shades in as little as an hour. This procedure is a great option for the patient that wants a whiter and brighter smile in the quickest, easiest way.


Take-home whitening trays are a wonderful option for patients that would like to whiten their teeth on their own time away from the dental office. The professional grade whitening solution is easily applied to your custom-made trays. By wearing the trays 30 minutes a day, you will lighten up to 8 shades in about two weeks!

Replace Your Missing Teeth

Improve your ability to eat and enjoy all the foods you love, laugh, and smile freely without hiding your smile. Achieve both of these by replacing any missing teeth with Dr. Yazdan of Newport Beach.

Dental implants have become the most preferred form of tooth replacement. Titanium implants can replace one or more missing teeth or secure a dental bridge or denture.  With dental implants, your replacement teeth will look and feel natural with an incredibly strong bite strength.

When dental implants are not an option, a ceramic or porcelain bridge is a great way to fill a space where a tooth should be. Your custom-designed bridge will restore your ability to eat and improve your speech.

Straighten Your Teeth in 2023

Misaligned teeth are more difficult to keep clean and put you at a higher risk for dental decay and periodontal disease, as well as TMJ disorder. Why not consider straightening your teeth in 2023? Dr. Yazdan of Newport Beach has undergone extensive training to offer Invisalign clear aligner trays at our practice without any additional referrals needed.

With Invisalign, custom clear aligner trays will apply gentle force on your teeth to comfortably move them into place. Invisalign discreetly straightens your smile in 6-12 months in most cases. And because your trays are removable, eating and brushing is easy.
