Having a great smile gives us confidence; it is so wonderful to have a photo taken with friends or family and be able to give a big beaming smile. 

But for millions of people, their smile is a source of upset and worry. The worst part is that when we look back on photos, we might wish that we had given out the biggest brightest smile for all the times we were happy.

Drink and Eat well

Some foods stain our teeth pretty quickly, while others attack the enamel. For the most part, Teeth aren’t meant to be bright white – but they are supposed to be almost white-ish. So when they are getting multiple cups of coffee, some red wine, or sugar sweeties, it can be a lot. 

Make sure that you drink plenty of water throughout the day and plenty of fruits and veggies to keep your teeth looking gorgeous.

One of the most innovative and exciting pieces of dentistry available is the ability to straighten your teeth from home. Teeth straightening is one of the fastest ways to have a massive bump in your confidence. 

It is now possible to do this from the comfort of your own home – which makes it a great option!

Regular cleaning

The cleaning you can do and the cleaning that your hygiene and dental team can do vary hugely. 

Your dental team uses specialized tools and cleaning solutions and carefully removes plaque and other build-ups. This careful cleaning can be done between regular dental appointments, which means that you are taking preventative steps. 

During a teeth cleaning, you can discuss the possibility of a whitening treatment if it’s something that you want. 

Missing teeth

You are not alone if you have some teeth missing! Millions of people have a tooth or teeth missing, and they are sure about all of the fantastic possibilities. Implants are one of the most practical and long-lasting treatments for missing teeth. 

A tooth or teeth can be fitted directly into the jaw bow (like the rest of your teeth) and will be the perfect shape and color to match the rest of your teeth. 

Depending on how many teeth you have missing, you can opt for less invasive treatments and have bridges or complete sets of dentures. 

Clean well

Yep! You guessed it, much of having a glorious smile comes down to your dental hygiene. Make sure that you have a regular brushing routine, and make sure to flow between those teeth. 

It’s not uncommon for people to brush well and not floss. The gaps between teeth will quickly hide food debris and build up plaque. The worst thing about it is that you’ll need to go to the dentist to get it fixed once it has happened. 

There is no better time than now to take a look at your smile and see what you can improve on to make yourself feel confident at all times.
