Think your most valuable accessory is that designer leather handbag you got for a steal last spring? Think it’s the jeans that fit like a glove, which cost more than you would ever admit aloud? What about that watch your spouse gave you to congratulate you on landing your dream job. Think again! What people really notice when they meet you, and most remember, is your smile. A gorgeous smile is the one accessory that will never go out of style. Unfortunately, it can begin to look dingy and dated. Make sure yours is making a winning impression by caring for your dental health through preventive cleanings, and cosmetic dentistry for that added shine!
What’s Wrong with Your Smile?
One of the first steps in correcting or even beautifying any feature, is identifying how it could be improved upon. In the case of the smile, keep in mind that a beautiful smile starts with great oral health.
From well-cleaned teeth to healthy gums, you can help keep your smile clean and gorgeous by brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily, as well. Drinking plenty of water, and eating a diet low in sugar are also benefial from both a smile standpoint, and for your overall health.
If your smile is looking dingy, consider whether you are overdue for a professional dental cleaning. Over time, tartar buildup can cause teeth to look dingy, and also puts them at risk of cavity development. Avoid this by attending routine cleanings, at least once every six months. This is one of the best ways to keep the smile looking – and feeling – its best, over time.
