3 Tips to a Confident Smile!
Did you know recent studies have shown smile confidence, self-esteem, happiness, and overall health are correlated? That’s right. Those who have confidence to smile more & laugh more are generally less stressed, happier, and actually live longer.
By now it’s no secret that most, if not all, of us want a straight-gleaming smile to display to the world. For those that are self-conscious of their smile due to gaps, missing teeth, stains, or something different, often will neglect smiling for photos and around others. Smiling allows you to relax, be happy, and enjoy the moment.
It’s time to take back your happiness, and ditch the smile that you’re embarrassed about. It may feel like a lonely place to be in, but don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Like many patients who want to achieve that beautiful, confident smile, there are several ways to accomplish this.
Here are our 3 favorite ways you can get that confident smile:
Sounds easy enough, but a lot of people skimp on their oral health. The first step we recommended to everyone is to have a better oral health routine. Brushing, flossing, rinsing twice a day will go farther than you think. A healthy smile is always a beautiful thing and make for a beautiful thing.
Having a healthy smile will also lead to other benefits too. Teeth and gums that are healthy will have less pain, are less susceptible to injury and infection and require less, expensive dental work in the future!
The Proper Dental Care Regiment:
- Visit your dentist every six months for an examination and thorough cleaning
- Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste and a good toothpaste
- Floss Daily (minimum 1 time before bed)
- Eat right. A healthy diet without sugar and foods/drinks that stain teeth or wear off enamel
- Mitigate grinding issues
- Rinse on the Regular. Whether water or mouthwash
Health runs through your mouth, so taking care of your teeth is just as important as taking care of the rest of your body!
Life happens. Some of us are dealt better cards than others, whether it’s naturally straight teeth, no accidents involving your mouth, or something different life happens. Flaws in your smile can consist of stains, gaps, chips, missing or crooked teeth. Some of these issues do in fact require a cosmetic treatment.. For such instances, best option for a dream smile is cosmetic dentistry.
Besides the common teeth whitening, Cosmetic Dentistry can fix a variety of issues like tooth loss, chips, stains, or crookedness using the following:
Sometimes, self care only goes so far and is why cosmetic dentistry is a good solution. Cosmetic dentistry can really do wonders for your smile and self.
At the end of the day, the best way to a confident smile is to show the world yours! Be proud of what you have. The efforts of proper oral hygiene and/or a cosmetic treatment will be null and void if you continue to hide your smile.
Owning your natural smile, flaws and all will greatly improve your confidence, happiness, and self-esteem.
