Simple Tips For Sparkling Smiles

Dental treatments are great for creating a more beautiful smile, but there are steps you can take without a bunch of costly procedures. Try these simple tips to create a beautiful smile right at home.
 
Take the Time to Floss
 
Flossing is one of the easiest ways to guarantee a beautiful smile. In addition to brushing your teeth at least twice daily, flossing every day has a lot of benefits to the mouth.
 
Toothbrushes are meant to reach every crevice within the mouth and things often go missed. Flossing is sure to prevent plaque build-up and prevent the growth of bacteria.
 
Boost Your Intake of Vitamins & Minerals
 
A healthy and beautiful mouth requires strong teeth. Eating a diet balanced with teeth strengthening minerals and vitamins will keep your smile bright.
 
Calcium is an important mineral needed to grow strong teeth. Choose calcium-rich foods like cheeses, green vegetables and fat-free milk. There are also calcium-fortified cereals, bread and juices available.
Vitamin C is another aspect to strong teeth. This repairs tissue damage and stops the growth of bacteria. Many fruits and vegetables will contain high levels of Vitamin C.
 
Avoid Bad Foods
 
There are several foods and drinks that want to destroy that smile. Avoid these wherever possible:
 
Sodas
Sugary foods & drinks
Acidic foods and drinks like citrus
Red wine
Coffee
Tea
Tobacco products
 
Fake it With Your Makeup
 
There are several makeup colors that give the appearance of whiter teeth. Choose shades of lipstick that offer blue undertones. In addition, a bronzer will help to darken the skin tone which creates a greater contrast to the teeth.
 
Use Whitening Products
 
There are several products on the market in the form of a toothpaste or DIY treatments that will offer surface stain removal. This is a great way to achieve some quick brightening of your smile.
If you have concerns about the shading of your teeth, be sure to speak with your dentist. They can offer suggestions and treatments that will help you to achieve the smile you desire. Make an appointment today and see what beautiful smile they can help you to create.
