As people get older, many will try whatever they can to look younger. This includes youthful clothing, a new car, a trendy hairstyle, or even cosmetic surgery. But for some reason, people don’t always think about their smiles. More than anything, a bright smile can make you look younger and healthy.
The foundation for a beautiful smile is to follow a regiment of good oral health. Start by making sure you brush twice a day and floss once a day. This keeps the teeth healthy and the gums in good shape. Neglecting these simple steps can lead to harmful bacteria that cause cavities, tooth discoloration, and periodontal disease.
Even with a stringent oral hygiene routine, teeth will slightly yellow with age. There are multiple teeth whitening methods available, but toothpaste takes too long, and whitening strips are often uneven. In-office professional treatments act quicker than at-home methods and ensure a consistent and bright smile.
Whether there is a small chip or a larger issue with your smile, cosmetic dentistry is a popular way to restore a smile and bring on a youthful appearance. In addition to looking better, some cosmetic dentistry procedures can have an advantageous effect that improves your bite and makes the teeth stronger.
It is amazing how few people actually smile! You work hard to ensure your pearly whites are bright and shining. Smiling can actually make you happier and make you want to smile even more. Nothing makes us happier than having outpatients leave with a huge smile on their face.
