If you’ve ever untagged yourself from a picture because you feel self-conscious about your smile, you’re amongst the 48% of people who have done so, according to a recent study. Many people feel worried about the way their teeth look when they smile, and often refuse to be in photographs or untag themselves for this reason.
There are many ways to address a smile that you are not happy with, however, so you do not have to continue to avoid pictures of yourself! You can talk to us at Guiney Dental Clinic about the options, and we will help you to make the best choices. Procedures that we may recommend include:
• Porcelain veneers
• Dental crowns
• Whitening procedures
• Tooth restorations
Our suggestions will vary according to your personal situation. You may wish to reshape your teeth, close spaces or replace silver fillings with more natural looking options, and we can help you to achieve the smile you have always wanted.
How To Protect Your Smile:
A great smile can make a big different to how confident you feel and how others respond to you. Before you consider cosmetic procedures, it is important to do all you can to protect your teeth and prevent the discolouration, decay and trauma that can spoil your smile. To protect your smile, you should:
1. Have a great dental care routine. Brushing twice daily for at least two minutes is the bare minimum to keep your teeth healthy and white, and you should also floss daily and use mouthwash if your dentist recom-mends this.
2. Visit your dentist regularly. You should see your dentist once or twice eve-ry year for a check up and a thorough clean. If you are having problems with your teeth, you can ask your dentist for advice on how to look after them more effectively, and you will be able to seek advice on cosmetic procedures where necessary.
3. Start good habits early. It’s never too early to start taking care of your teeth. You should teach children how to care for their teeth from an early age, and model good habits yourself. Studies have shown that many people do not brush and floss their teeth correctly, and some even share a tooth brush with another person. Talk to your dentist if you feel that you would benefit from some tips to improve your dental health routine.
