Regular care of your teeth is essential to their continual health. At our practice, we encourage patients to have a professional cleaning and a thorough examination at least once every six months. For those with a history of dental disease, visits every three to four months are ideal. We remind all patients that brushing twice a day and flossing each night is key, as well as maintaining a healthy diet low in sugar and high in phosphorus and calcium.

Restorative dentistry repairs damaged dental structures. Many need restorative dentistry at some point in their lives, whether due to poor dental care in their youth, a genetic predisposition to gum disease or dental decay, or because of some accident or trauma to the mouth. Dr. Vartanian and his expert staff offer everything from fillings to dental implants, always prioritizing patient comfort.

Cosmetic Dentistry

A beautiful smile has a positive impact on your self-esteem and your overall health. Chipped, broken teeth or gaps in your smile can cause issues ranging from nerve damage to gum loss. Discolored or otherwise stained teeth can make you hesitant to move through life with confidence.   

At Newport Institute for Dentistry, our cosmetic dentists in Newport provide an array of services. From whitening to a full smile makeover, we can restore your dental and oral health, as well as give you a brilliant smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
