Stop Hiding Smile
A healthy smile is easy to show off, bringing confidence and happiness! If you do not love your smile, there are a number of things you can do to improve it! Whitening your smile is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to feel better about your smile and enjoy showing it off!
Professional Dental Whitening
Having your teeth professionally whitened is a low-cost and effective way to improve your smile. There are a number of home whitening options available on the market but they do take up to two weeks to achieve maximum results whereas a professional in-office whitening procedure can give you the results you want in under two hours!
Your dentist may recommend that you have a professional cleaning a few days before whitening treatment. This ensures that you achieve maximum results after whitening. There will also be a few rules about what you can and cannot eat immediately following whitening treatment, for at least 72 hours. A good rule of thumb is to avoid consuming anything that could stain a white t-shirt so your morning coffee and evening glass of wine will need to be skipped for a couple of days.
After whitening, it can be beneficial to begin using a stain removing toothpaste to remove build up on a day-to-day basis.
If you have crooked teeth or gaps in your teeth it prevent you from smiling as much as you like, you may consider orthodontic treatment to correct your smile and ensure the health of your teeth. Orthodontics is also a great way to prevent periodontal disease as crooked teeth are harder to keep clean than straight teeth. Teeth that are crowded and overlap can develop periodontal disease which can lead to gum recession, loose teeth, bone deterioration, and eventually tooth loss.
People who are confident in their smile make a better impression than those who avoid smiling. Whitening your teeth it’s such a simple way to refresh and brighten your smile and can last for years with good maintenance. And orthodontia does not have to be an arduous process, most dental offices offer some form of clear aligner therapy that makes orthodontic treatment a breeze!
If you are not happy with your smile, consult with your dentist to see if there are options available to you that would help you feel more confident and happy!
