Improve Your Smile Today with These Tips

Posted on 7/10/2018 by Dr. Justin Lai
Improve Your Smile Today with These TipsIf you are unhappy with your smile, it may seem like making a change is a monumental task.

Fortunately, that simply isn't true. You can improve your smile today as long as you start to follow some helpful tips.

Floss Every Day

Floss provides an important function for your teeth. It removes plaque from under the gums and between the teeth. These hard to reach places aren't accessible via a toothbrush, and when undisturbed, the plaque can cause periodontal disease. Ultimately, bone destruction and tooth loss may result.

Stop Smoking

There are many reasons to give up smoking, and the health and appearance of your teeth should be right in there. Smoking causes stains, and many of them soak deep into the enamel. It also damages the gums, causing recession and the development of pockets. The teeth will look longer, and dark spaces will develop between them.

Drink Less Coffee and Red Wine

Just like smoking, coffee, tea, and wine can cause staining. While some of these stains are superficial, others are long-lasting. You can choose to drink through a straw to minimize some of the risk, but in general, you should really limit your consumption.

Drink More Water

Water is one of the healthiest drinks for your body, including your teeth. It helps to keep the teeth clean and works to prevent decay. Tap water is the best option, as it contains fluoride that will protect your teeth from decay.

Visit Your Dentist

Don't worry about how long it has been since your last dental appointment. Even if it has been years – or decades – it is never too late to get a cleaning.

Your dental health and smile will see drastic improvements after a thorough cleaning and any necessary treatments.
