Have you ever seen a person’s smile and wondered how they could possibly be blessed with such perfect, white teeth?
The reality is that some people are lucky when it comes to the ‘dental lottery’. They’re blessed with lovely teeth and don’t have to work too hard for them.
However, that is true of very few people. Most people have to work for their smile, and it’s quite likely that the person’s whose smile you are admiring has secretly had dental work done to improve their appearance.
In this article, the team at Dental Haus will be exploring five tips on making your smile shine.
1. Follow your oral hygiene routine carefully.
This would have to be the most boring, but also the most sensible tip. Brushing for two minutes in the morning and at night with a dentist-approved toothbrush and toothpaste is essential and there’s no way around it. It may not be able to restore teeth that are already discoloured, but it can help to keep your teeth stable and prevent the issue from becoming worse. Similarly, using floss is highly important and can prevent plaque from building up and decay from setting in.
2. Watch what you eat and drink.
Another tip we’d all rather ignore! However, it’s really important to be disciplined if you want to enjoy long-lasting white natural teeth. Try to cut back on your sugars, excluding or limiting certain items in your diet including lollies, chocolate, sweetened soda, cake, cookies, and other sugar-rich foodstuffs. Coffee, tea, and wine (particularly red wine) can also result in staining of the teeth, and smoking is the biggest culprit of all.
3. Look into teeth whitening treatments.
The fact is, you are probably looking into ways to whiten your teeth because they have already become discoloured. If that’s the case, your best option is likely to be teeth whitening with a professional dentist Palm Beach, such as Gold Coast Dental Haus. Your local Palm Beach dentist will offer a teeth whitening solution, such as Pola teeth whitening, which is trusted by Miss Universe contestants at our clinic! These treatments are offered both in-clinic at and home for those who prefer to do things in their own time and space.
4. Consider dental veneers.
If you aren’t happy with the shape of your teeth, there might be some logic in changing the shape of them at the same time as you change their whiteness of them. Veneers achieve both of these goals at once. If you have recently have them whitened, it doesn’t make sense to get veneers immediately because you’d just be covering up the whitening you paid for. Dental veneers are a cap that is applied over the tooth, to alter its shape and appearance and mask any imperfections.
5. Investigate alternatives to boost your smile.
Teeth whitening and dental veneers are just the beginning. Depending on what you want to achieve with your smile, there are many other options at your Palm Beach dental clinic or no gap dentist in Palm Beach. These include treatments focused on the teeth, such as dental crowns, and also treatments that consider the whole smile, such as anti-wrinkle injectables and filler injectables. People react to a smile based on overall impression – so why focus just on the teeth?
