Making a Confident Smile

Published on March 1st, 2018

Have you ever caught yourself hiding your smile behind a napkin when out to dinner with friends? Or, can you remember the last time you smiled without keeping your lips closed? If you are self-conscious about your smile, you are not the only one. Fortunately, you can gain a confident smile when your mouth is healthy. Here are just a few tips to get you on the road to a confident smile.

Make dental visits a priority
Visiting your dentist twice per year for check-ups is imperative. Not only does your dentist get the chance to notice any health changes, you also establish a relationship of trust and rapport with your medical team. You can ask your dentist questions, develop plans for future procedures, and assure your teeth and gums are healthy.

Keep up healthy habits
Beyond meeting with your dentist twice per year, be sure you are committed to healthy dental habits at home. Brush your teeth at least twice per day, for a minimum of two minutes each time. Floss daily, and avoid sugary drinks or treats.

Consider Invisalign
If you are not confident about your smile due to misaligned teeth, you may think your only option is to invest time and money into getting braces. Fortunately, many dental patients can benefit from Invisalign, an option that is less painful, less expensive, and less time consuming than traditional braces.

Schedule recommended dental procedures
Finally, work with your dentist to schedule recommended procedures. Crowns, implants, and dentures can make your smile look great, keep your oral cavity healthier, and even make eating easier. Talk to your dentist about your insurance plan to assure you are getting the most from your coverage.

You can have a confident smile, and we want you to have one too. Give us a call to set up your first appointment, and start your journey towards a happy and healthy smile.
