Rejuvenating your Smile: The Top Tips

Are you too afraid to show your teeth every time you smile at a camera? Do you constantly wish that your smile was brighter, whiter, or straighter? A lot of people suffer from having pale, or stained teeth. Not only does it not look good, it also isn’t healthy for your teeth in the longer run. Similarly, trauma to the mouth of any form, or bite disorders could lead to a non-aligned smile as well.

A good smile endures more confidence in a person and thus, you can always look forward to bettering it. If you suffer from stained or pale teeth, you can make changes in your food habits and maintain a better oral hygiene.

Foods like coffee and tea aren’t really healthy. Smoking and drinking alcohol aren’t great too, and your teeth won’t like it.

So, if you’re looking forward to gifting yourself a rejuvenated smile, here are some tips.

  1. Avoid foods that stain

Your favorite cup of tea or coffee can eventually stain your teeth and it’ll be too hard to whiten them again. Smoking cigarettes can yellow your teeth and can have worse effects on them later on. Therefore, you should always avoid food and drinks that can stain or use a straw while drinking them to avoid it. You should also rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash, or brush your teeth right after having junk food.

  1. Maintain good oral hygiene

Regular brushing and flossing your teeth goes a long way. You can also make use of whitening toothpaste or strips which can yield good results. However, products like these must always be used with caution as they can make your teeth and gums sensitive if not used properly.

  1. Regular dental check-ups

Dentists can check out for any weak spots in your teeth from time to time. Regular procedures like dental cleaning also help in removing plaque and bacteria off from your teeth and keep them white for a long time.

  1. Professional whitening options

Tooth discoloration is more difficult to remove than yellowing of teeth or formation of plaque. Here, in-home whitening treatments or brushing and flossing don’t work. Thus, you can make use of whitening procedures like whitening trays, bleaching, etc. to give yourself the perfect smile you need.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If it isn’t tooth discoloration but a whole new smile you’re going after, cosmetic dentistry can be helpful for you. Bite disorders like crossbite, overbite, underbite, etc. need the use of braces, or jaw restoring procedures to correct them. In many cases, gaps between the teeth, broken or worn down teeth due to any trauma on the mouth also need cosmetic correction to be fixed.

Cosmetic dentistry can also be used by people who want to create their dream smile without waiting for too long. Here, you can make use of porcelain veneers to cover any gaps in your tooth or to correct its shape or size.
