Now more than ever, all eyes are on our smiles.
This is the selfie generation. We snap selfies everywhere we go, to show the world where we’ve been and who we’re with.
Our faces are everywhere online. Facebook. Instagram. Tinder. We are judged by complete strangers and people we barely know, with nothing more to go on than one snapshot of our lives. A status update. A profile photo.
We make decisions quickly. To follow or unfollow? Friend or unfriend? Swipe right or swipe left?
Want Great Selfies? Take Care of Your Teeth
Excellent dental care and good hygiene are essential for oral health. Dental care also keeps your teeth looking great. Routine care is a vital component of a terrific smile. There are also lots of cosmetic procedures your family dentist can provide to improve your smile.
- Keep up with check-ups and cleanings every six months.
- Professional whitening in your dentist’s office is the best way to achieve dramatic results. Whitening systems like take-home treatments that combine the stunning results of an in-clinic treatment with custom trays you take home for follow-up. Those take-home trays allow you to keep your teeth whiter longer and touch up at home as day-to-day staining happens.
- Veneers can help if you’re hesitant to smile because of stained, chipped or badly-shaped teeth. They’re custom-made shells that cover the front side of your teeth, allowing you to have the size, shape and color of your dreams.
- When your teeth have minor cosmetic issues such as a small chip or discoloration, dental bonding is an easy, relatively quick and affordable solution. By applying a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) material to a tooth and hardening it with a light, the tooth receives restoration that protects the area from further damage and improves your smile and confidence.
