Your smile plays an important role in your general appearance. It is often the first thing others notice about you. If don’t feel confident about your smile because of your teeth, you are not alone. Below are some of the ways you can achieve a radiant, white smile:
Adopt a good oral hygiene routine
One of the best tips for keeping your teeth looking healthy is to make sure you follow a good oral hygiene routine. In addition to brushing your teeth at least twice a day, it is essential to floss. Using a mouthwash recommended by the dentist can help eliminate germs and prevent bad breath.
Keeping your teeth beautiful means watching what you eat and drink. Foods that are good for your teeth include yogurt, cheese, crunchy fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Drink water instead of sugary beverages, such as energy drinks, juices, or soda, to prevent cavities. When you do not have an opportunity to brush your teeth, it is best to rinse away food particles with water after meals or snacks.
Get professional teeth cleaning
If you want a beautiful smile, don’t skip the periodic cleaning and check-ups at the dentist. At our clinic we can help you remove stains and discoloration, leaving your teeth whiter. In addition, our experienced dentists perform comprehensive examinations to find and treat any dental problems at an early stage.
Consider professional teeth whitening
Due to the natural process of aging, our teeth may become dull, yellowed or stained with time. Certain foods and habits also contribute to discolored teeth, such as red wine, coffee, tea and smoking. If you’re concerned about stained, discolored teeth, get in touch with our clinic to learn more about teeth whitening options.
Get crowns or veneers
Crowns strengthen damaged teeth, because they cover the entire tooth, improving not only the function but also the appearance of your teeth. Veneers can also give you the attractive, Hollywood smile that is so desirable today. These thin porcelain shells improve the appearance of malformed and discolored teeth.
