Dental Tips for Looking Younger
When it comes to looking younger, your smile may play a bigger role than you imagined. Straight, white teeth create an impression of youth and health while discolored, worn, and missing teeth can add years to your appearance. You can roll back the clock on your smile with a few simple changes to your dental routine.
1. Brushing, flossing, and good dental hygiene
Keeping your teeth clean is the most effective way to keep your smile looking young because it keeps dental disease at bay. You keep plaque and tartar under control with good brushing and flossing habits, and this greatly reduces the risk of decay, gum disease, and other serious dental problems. Visit us every six months for a professional cleaning and checkup.
2. Healthy habits
Healthy lifestyle habits are good for your body, but they are also good for your smile. Smoking and excess alcohol use can stain your teeth and increase your risk of serious dental issues, including gum disease and oral cancer. An unhealthy diet can leave you prone to periodontal disease, cavities, and tooth loss. Try to eat a balanced diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and lean proteins with few processed foods and simple carbohydrates, and get some exercise most days of the week.
Stains can appear on your teeth even with the healthiest of habits, so if you notice your teeth are starting to look dark or yellow, consider professional whitening. We can use special whitening ingredients to lift the stains without damaging the structure of your teeth.
