3 Ways to Improve Your Smile

“A smile is the universal welcome.” Max Eastman

We love to see you smile! Providing you with options to improve the quality of your smile is chiefly what we do. For some, modern cosmetic dentistry provides a true smile transformation while boosting confidence and self-esteem. For others, a few minor changes to routines may be all that’s needed to enhance the quality of their smile.

You can quickly improve your smile by following the 3 suggestions below.

1. Eliminate Stains

If your teeth are stained, consider cutting back on the consumption of caffeine, red wine and other foods that may be the cause of staining. Professional teeth whitening may also be an option. In-Office whitening systems are safe, effective and fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter.

2. Brush & Floss Regularly – Even On The Go

Brush regularly and make it a habit to carry floss or dental picks with you. No need to worry about your smiles appearance if you have been maintaining it throughout the day.

3. Visit the Dentist Regularly

This may seem obvious, but regular visits to your dentist’s office give you an opportunity to discuss cosmetic options. Crowns, bridges or braces may all be an option to improve your smile and your dentist can best suggest the correct procedure when they have a complete knowledge of your oral health.

Tips To Send Your Child To School With A Healthy Smile

Back to school means new school clothes, school supplies, forms to fill out and new routines to learn. In short, it’s a busy, busy time! With all the hustle and bustle back to school brings, one appointment you don’t want to forget is your child’s dental check-up. In fact, the American Dental Association states,

 “A dental examination is as important as  booster shots and should be a regular part of back to school preparations.”

Along with regular check-ups, the ADA makes the following recommendations to protect your child’s oral health and send them to school with a healthy smile.

Plan Ahead

August and December are some of the busiest times. Plan ahead and schedule your child’s dental exams early.

Every Child Should Have an Orthodontic Evaluation By Age 7

Early evaluation and treatment can reduce the severity of a bad bite later in life.

Consider Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants protect your child’s teeth by forming a barrier on the chewing surface and can last several years.

Have Your Child Fitted For A Mouthguard

Sporting injuries to your child’s teeth can be minimized or prevented by use of a well-fitting mouthguard.
