Did you know that smiling, even when you don’t mean it, can have a positive effect on your mood? It can also make you seem more friendly and approachable to the people around you. Of course, some people are subconscious about their smiles and try to hide them often.
If you’re someone who is subconscious about their smile or are simply looking for ways to improve yourself, read on to learn more about how to make your smile irresistible.
How to Get a Better Smile
Getting a better smile isn’t so much about learning how to smile better but enhancing what you already have. Here are a few ways to enhance your beautiful smile.
Brush and Floss Regularly
Healthy gums and pearly whites are the foundation of a beautiful smile. Regular brushing and flossing can help elevate your smile fast. That being said, remember to keep up with it!
Of course, brushing and flossing have other benefits, too. For one, they can help control bacteria and other organisms that lead to tooth decay, bad breath, and a host of other oral maladies.
Have Your Teeth Whitened
Everything you eat has an effect on your teeth. It’s not uncommon for a person’s teeth to naturally yellow over time as you expose them to different colored foods. Unfortunately, this yellowing often leads to feelings of self-consciousness in people who experience it.
Luckily, whitening your teeth is a fast, easy fix for unwanted yellowing or darkening. To get started, find a dentist near you who offers teeth whitening services.
Tooth reshaping, also known as dental contouring, is a common cosmetic treatment that can help create a healthy smile. The process involves removing a small amount of enamel (the hard outer coating on your teeth) to reshape the tooth.
If you have small imperfections in your smile, such as pointy and/or misshapen teeth, can be corrected using tooth reshaping. For significant tooth issues, you may want to look into veneers.
Dental Bonding and Veneers
Dental bonding is like tooth reshaping, but instead of removing pieces of the tooth, materials are bonded to the tooth to enhance its shape. Resins and porcelain are used with your tooth’s natural enamel and dentin to create a strong, beautiful structure.
Dental bonding and veneers are similar in nature, but veneers tend to last a lot longer. Thin pieces of resin or porcelain custom-designed to fit your teeth are created in a lab and later attached to the fronts.
Veneers are natural looking and make an excellent fix for broken, chipped, or heavily stained teeth.
Look Into Implants
If you have missing teeth, even in areas that aren’t visible (such as the back of your mouth) implants can help restore your confidence. Your dentist places them securely in the upper or lower jaw, implants represent a long-term option for tooth replacement.
Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Hopefully, this little article answered your question on how to get a better smile. Brushing and flossing regularly and visiting your dentist on schedule are great ways to keep your healthy smile bright. But, if you need work done, veneers, dental bonding, whitening, or reshaping can all help too.
