Four Ways To Improve Your Smile

When it comes to improving your smile, there are plenty of ways to get your teeth looking straighter, brighter and whiter in no time. You will have to invest some money in the procedures that a dental practitioner prescribes, but if you look after your teeth properly after the treatment has been completed, then the results should last for many years to come.

While enhancing your dental features can often seem an unnecessary cosmetic procedure to undertake, many individuals are self-conscious about their teeth. This can be significantly detrimental to self-esteem and mental health in the long run. Having teeth you are proud of, and are happy to show off can make a huge difference to your life.

Here are five ways that a dentist can help to improve your smile:

Teeth Whitening

McCrae Dental Practice offers teeth whitening services that enable you to restore shine by teeth bleaching at home, and provide you with teeth whitening trays that have been specially made to fit into your mouth. The total length of the home bleaching treatment can vary depending on how discoloured your teeth are, to begin with, and also the shade you want your teeth to get to in the end, you’ll be required to be persistent with the treatment plan and follow the instructions you are given to get the best results.

Braces

By applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move your teeth into a specific place, braces are a great way to get your smile straighter and work with what you already have. The thought of having braces might be off-putting to some individuals, especially if you are older when braces are less commonly worn, but the results will leave you with a flawless smile without having any of your teeth altered or removed. Braces are averagely used for about 16-18 months, making them a bigger commitment than alternative treatments. Just be sure to weigh up all of your options before coming to a decision.

Brushing and Flossing

Before opting to visit the dentist you might want to reevaluate the toothpaste and dental equipment you are using at home to help your teeth shine, as there could be areas that are due to an upgrade sooner than you think. Dentists usually recommend that you replace your toothbrush at least every 3 months, or as soon as the bristles have started to break and fray. This will ensure your teeth are being cleaned properly every time you brush. Dental floss is great for removing pieces of food and plaque build up between your teeth, and prevent them from staining and becoming discoloured quickly.

Crowns

A crown, or dental cap, is a type of dental restoration that encapsulates your tooth and covers up any unfavourable features without removing the tooth altogether. It is a more invasive procedure to teeth whitening but can improve the shape and texture of your teeth. They are usually bonded together with a dental.
