Daily wear and tear can affect the look of your smile in many ways. From teeth staining to enamel wear, a beautiful smile is difficult to obtain. There are many avenues to improve your dental appearance, including at-home options and also at your dentist’s office. With all your choices, your goal should first be to establish good oral health, and then enhance the look of your teeth from there. The following tips help you understand your many options for obtaining a more attractive smile:
Improving the Smile from Home
You can take action before ever visiting the dental office. Part of your standard care should include bi-annual dental visits, which protects you from plaque buildup and decay.
Good Oral Hygiene - Oftentimes a healthy smile equals a beautiful one, for routine home habits protect teeth from damage that affects their aesthetics. Brushing twice a day, and flossing at least once, are simple behaviors that eliminate food debris and stop the spread of unhealthy bacteria.
Nutrition – What we eat is almost as important as our daily habits. A diet rich with vegetables, fruits, and unprocessed foods protects teeth. Be mindful of beverages and food items that have high sugar content—including coffee drinks, fast food, sodas, and desserts. Sugar serves as fuel for bacteria, accelerating their growth. At the very least, rinse your mouth or brush after consuming these food items.
Over-the-Counter Products – Teeth whitening from your local pharmacy or convenience store offers an affordable option to improve the brightness of your teeth. Although these treatments are not customized to the contours of your smile, they can still be effective. Be sure to choose a brand that have good ratings and be mindful when you have sensitive teeth, as some brands can cause discomfort.
