How to Enhance Your Smile
Smiling makes everyone feel better, but many people are worried about the appearance of their teeth, which makes them reluctant to offer the world a big, friendly smile. If you can relate, know that there are lots of ways to improve and enhance your smile so you don’t have to feel self-conscious anymore.
There are things you can do at home and at your dental clinic to make your teeth look better, so let’s explore the options.
At Home Smile Improvers
If you already have good teeth, then you’ll want to keep them that way by treating them well and avoiding things like red wine, coffee, and smoking, which can all stain your teeth and make them look dirty and dull. Sugary food and drinks are disastrous for your health as well as your teeth and should also be avoided. Try to avoid very hard foods that can crack or chip your teeth, and always use your teeth for their intended purpose, not for opening bottles, undoing knots or tearing tape off the roll.
Brushing and flossing regularly using a good toothbrush will help you keep your teeth for longer, and using a whitening toothpaste can help too. Visit your dentist every six months for a check-up to find any dental problems early and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
If your teeth are crooked, missing, chipped, cracked or stained, there are cosmetic dental treatments to make them look great again.
Braces may seem like an extreme move, especially if you’re older, but it’s never too late to straighten your teeth for a permanently beautiful smile. Gone are the days of a mouth full of metal when you want straight teeth. Today’s braces are discreet and effective with Invisalign® or self-ligating braces that are much more comfortable than traditional ones and don’t use elastic or metal ties.
Professional teeth whitening can transform stained or discoloured teeth and lighten them by up to eight shades. All it takes is an hour in the dentist’s chair with Zoom! Teeth Whitening [link to page 1], and you can purchase a take-home kit for maintenance.
Veneers and Crowns
Porcelain veneers are a good option to improve the look of heavily stained, chipped, crooked or broken teeth. Veneers are a fast, convenient and permanent treatment that doesn’t require the removal of a lot of the tooth’s structure. Dental crowns are a little more intensive, but they’re a good option to cover and support damaged or weakened teeth or to permanently replace missing teeth.
Your missing teeth can be replaced with permanent dental implants or removable dental bridges and dentures.
