This Valentine’s Day, give yourself or a loved one a gift that both of you can enjoy – a beautiful smile.
Keeping a clean, healthy smile is critical for individuals of all ages, and never so important as for those who want to make a great first impression on Valentine’s Day.
With the right dental hygiene and treatment, you should be able to transform an ordinary smile into an amazing one.
What does it take to improve your smile? Here are some ideas from Prevent Dental Suite to ensure that your smile is in tip-top condition just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Whiten Your Teeth this Month of Love
Teeth whitening lightens teeth and removes stains and discolouration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
The outer layer of a tooth is the enamel. The colour of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the colour of the dentin under it. Over time, that colour can become dingy.
Some of the most common reasons for teeth to be yellow or stained are:
- Using tobacco.
- Drinking dark-coloured liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine.
- Not taking good care of your teeth.
- Aging makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker.
Whitening can be done in the dental office or at home.
For in-office whitening, your dentist probably will photograph your teeth first. Your dentist will also examine your teeth and ask you questions to determine what caused the staining.
In-office whitening usually takes 30 to 90 minutes and can often be finished in one appointment. The number of appointments will depend upon the method used, how severe your stains are and how white you want your teeth to be.
Keeping Your Teeth Valentine’s Day Attractive, and All Year-Round
Floss – Floss often. You will be less likely to get cavities and build up food deposits which cause bad breath. No one likes bad breath and certainly not on Valentine’s Day.
Brush Often – Beat bacteria before it can become plaque, calculus, and then cavities!
Avoid Sugary Drinks – Sugar is a primary cause of cavities so try to stay away from it.
Frequent Cleanings – Make sure to see your dentist at least twice a year!
Following these four tips will allow you to have an easier time looking great with a nice smile and fresh smelling breath for your Valentine’s Day plans.
