We want our patients to have the best care, so have created a guide to creating a better smile.
What Can You Do at Home?
The most important thing you can do to maintain a healthy and good looking smile is brush daily. Brushing the teeth cleans and gets rid of bacteria. You should brush your teeth twice a day. There are many toothpastes available so suit sensitive teeth and more. Brushing keeps your teeth clean and will freshen your breath. Flossing is also very important this can get rid of stubborn food that gets stuck in the teeth. It will also clean the tight spaces between teeth that a toothbrush can’t reach.
You should also maintain a healthy diet to provide teeth with vitamins and nutrients. Sugar will cause cavities and decay so try and keep the sugar levels down. Avoid drinking too much of certain drinks like wine, tea and coffee as these will cause staining. Smoking can also damage the appearance of your smile.
These are simple steps that will keep your smile look it’s best at home.
How Can the Dentist Assist?
Your dentist will provide annual check-ups to check the general health of your teeth and gums. It is important to keep up these visits as problems can be spotted and treated early. Not only can the dentist help you keep your smile looking its best with healthy advice but the dentist can also provide cosmetic treatments. Teeth whitening, braces, implants, veneers and more can be offered to make you look your best. The dentist can also provide white filings so this common procedure will not affect the appearance of your teeth.
There are also treatments available for your gums. If your gums are not healthy your smile won’t look healthy either. You could have gum procedures like bleaching and lifts, to give you pinker and more proportionate gums. We also provide information and procedures for gum disease to treat it and prevent it. You can also get treatment and info for receding gums and other issues that can affect your smile.
