We have all seen the celebrities nowadays having their teeth straightened, whitened and even capped at the front so they are all the same size and whilst this can look exceptionally good when being photographed smiling it can be quite expensive and sometimes our budget will not stretch to creating the perfect set of teeth.
However, there are things that you can do to help create a healthy looking set of teeth without always resorting to paying for expensive treatment.
How to get perfect teeth and that perfect smile.
Obviously if your teeth are crooked then you may need to wear a brace for a short time to try and straighten your teeth out and more and more dentists are now doing this for children in their early teens so that their teeth have a great chance of growing straight.
This is now excellent news and will help a lot of people whose teeth may have grown overlapping each other or even wonky, something later on in life that may have an effect on them.
Refraining from having too many foods or drinks that are known for staining your teeth and if you enjoy a glass of red wine each evening then why not try white wine and as long as this is in moderation then at least you are not subjecting your teeth to something that will easily stain them. Coffee is another drink that will eventually stain your teeth if drank too often as well as tea.
Limit your sugar intake as this can lead to tooth decay, something that will not look at all nice when you smile.
Brushing and flossing regularly is a very important part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums together with the right toothbrush.
All of the above can help you achieve a better smile and whiter teeth without having to undertake expensive treatment and more importantly you will have confidence when you smile.
Having teeth that do not look good because they are discoloured or actually look like they are rotting will not give anyone the confidence to smile and you will often see people smiling with either their hand in front of their mouth or their mouth will stay closed and some of the time this is because they are very embarrassed because of their teeth.
This can lead to a lack of confidence with people and for some it can actually encroach on their everyday life whereby they do not like to meet new people for fear of showing their unhealthy teeth and gums.
Another really big downfall of having poor dental care is the effect it can have on your breath, you will feel that you do not want to be near people whilst you are talking and let’s face it who would want to talk to someone that has bad smelling breath.
So make sure that you make the most of your teeth and gums and ensure that when you smile, you can smile with the confidence and the knowledge that you are actually showing a mouth full of healthy gums and teeth.
