It is said that a smile is worth a thousand words. It is an excellent way to present emotions and can make you and others feel better and confident.
Five common tips that can help you gain a beautiful smile are:
1. Have a Proper Oral Care Routine:
It’s important that you choose the right toothbrush. Brush at least twice a day and floss every day in order to keep your teeth healthy. Always have a beautiful smile that you can wear with confidence. An old toothbrush will not work well. Generally, you should be changing your toothbrush every 3 months and visit your dentist every 6 months for a regular check-up and routine oral prophylaxis.
The bristles should be soft or extra soft. An electric brush can be used as it is more efficient and requires less manual labor.
2.Flossing is really important to keep gums looking healthy and light pink, it helps in keeping the areas in-between teeth healthy, firm and resilient rather than swollen, red and inflamed.
3.Ensure that your teeth and gums are in optimal health. Cavities and enamel wear can lower the brightness and/or cause staining of your teeth. Decay can lead to discolouration, pain and even tooth loss.Visit your dentist regularly so that teeth can be checked for cavities and so you can be informed of how best to maintain the health of your teeth. If a different or lighter tooth shade is something you want, discuss this with your dentist and they will explain teeth whitening options. A healthy cavity-free smile is the most beautiful smile.
4.Reduce your Sugar intake: Bacteria break down sugar, leading to plaque buildup and an increase in oral acidity which leads to cavities and gum issues. By reducing your consumption of sugary snacks and colas etc. you can prevent cavities and improve oral hygiene.
5. If you have staining or gaps or damaged/misshapen teeth then you may consult your dentist for options of cosmetic dentistry. A number of treatments, including porcelain veneers, crowns and teeth whitening, are available to improve the appearance of your smile.
Lastly, your smile is the first thing people notice about you, so never shy away from flashing those pearly whites.
