How can I change my smile naturally

How can I change my smile naturally

Whilst there are some patients who may require the help of a dentist who specialises in cosmetic dentistry to aid in achieving their perfect smile, most patients have beautiful natural teeth and can use the following tips to enhance their already beautiful smile! 

natural remedies for white teeth

One of the most important and obvious tasks is to ensure optimal oral hygiene. When our teeth are not maintained ideally, plaque and calculus which is yellow in colour accumulate and cause an overall dull appearance of the teeth. To keep your teeth pearly white, brushing twice daily as well as interdental cleaning once daily is of the utmost importance. This will also prevent decay and thus the need for any fillings to be placed in your mouth which over time can stain and reduce the beauty of your smile. 

Avoid any bad habits such as nail biting, clenching of the teeth or use of toothpicks as this can cause damage to the teeth which will change the shape and can decrease aesthetics. Teeth are strong but should be protected always! 

Regular check-ups and cleans with your dentist will ensure that the teeth are being monitored and kept healthy. Bi-annual cleaning is very important as if calculus or tartar is building up on the teeth, this cann no longer be removed by brushing or flossing at home but only by our skilled hygienists or dentists. As mentioned, buildup of calculus on the teeth greatly affects their overall appearance. 

Implementing these techniques will provide a good foundation for the maintenance and improvement of a wonderful natural smile, however, if you feel that you may need more help in achieving the smile you want, feel free to book a consultation with one of our friendly dentists.
