How to Keep Your Smile Bright and Vibrant
According to the national media, around 57% of people are “insecure” about their teeth. A big component of this insecurity is losing the vibrant glow and bright smile of their pearly whites.
Dr AJ Salman of Northmed Dental in Auckland, NZ offers advice and tips on how to keep your smile bright and vibrant all year long.
Maintaining a Brilliant Smile: tips and tricks
We all would like a Hollywood smile worthy of the big screen, or at least your next night out on the town. Attractive teeth lend to our overall appeal and aesthetics, and can make a lasting impression for all the right reasons.
Yet, as part of natural ageing, lifestyle habits, medications, and more, our teeth can lose their vibrant lustre. Consider the following to help your smile age gracefully.
Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Dental Work
Teeth Whitening: Fast, safe, affordable and effective, teeth whitening or teeth bleaching can reliably remove surface-level stains, keeping your teeth sparkling and vibrant.
Teeth Cleaning: Professional teeth cleaning can remove some surface-level stains and deep clean better than brushing at home.
Porcelain Crowns: Have one or more teeth that have lost their sheen or are showing signs of ageing, deep staining or decay? Crowns can help restore the form, function and beauty of damaged teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: Ideal for front teeth, porcelain veneers can restore the beauty of your smile, covering up worn, damaged, broken or severely stained teeth with a fabricated thin shell of porcelain that looks and feels like the real thing.
Lifestyle Habits to Maintain a Brilliant Smile
Teeth wear, damage and stains are greatly influenced by the lifestyle you lead. Consider the following to maintain attractive teeth and a Hollywood smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
- Reduce or eliminate soft drinks and acidic drinks (or use a straw).
- Limit the use of coffee and tea.
- Eliminate or reduce the consumption of alcohol.
- Stop smoking and/or use of tobacco .
- Avoid eating hard foods.
- Avoid eating foods that easily stain (curries, mustard, ketchup, wine, beets, etc.)
- Eat a well-balanced diet.
- Maintain good oral hygiene practices.
