How to Get a Red Carpet Ready Smile

Posted on 5/23/2016 by Na Xu
A woman happy with her new dental veneers.Looking through tabloid magazines of celebrities on the red carpet, there is one common factor that all of our favorite movie stars and musicians are sporting - a beautiful smile.

It is easy to be envious of the straight and perfectly white teeth your favorite celeb is showing off, but the good news is, anyone can have a beautiful smile. You just have to take a trip to your dentist's office to find out how.

Fix Your Problem Areas
If you have crooked teeth, or if they are covered in stains, it is difficult to feel confident about your smile. By talking to your dentist about treatment options, you'll be ready to show it off. Dental veneers, bonding, and whitening treatments can all go a long way in improving the appearance of your smile.

Take Care of Your Teeth

It's not just your dentist's responsibility to care for your teeth - it is mostly yours. Make sure that you are caring for your teeth properly by brushing and flossing regularly. You can also use mouthwash in order to prevent cavities and gum disease.

Watch What You Eat
There are certain foods that are damaging to the teeth. Foods that are highly acidic can cause erosion, while coffee, red wine, and dark berries can stain the surfaces. Additionally, refined foods can attach to the teeth more easily, so you should consider whole wheat foods over refined carbohydrates.

Have Access to Fluoride

Fluoride is important in re-mineralizing the teeth, making them stronger and more durable against breakdowns. You can invest in fluoride rinses or gels, and your dentist can give you a good idea about which options will work best for your unique oral hygiene needs.

If you are ready to finally have the red carpet smile that you've always wanted, contact our office to set up an appointment.
