Look after your pearly whites
Looking after your teeth is crucial for achieving a beautiful smile. This means brushing twice a day with a fluoride-based toothpaste, as well as mouth washing and flossing at least once a day, potentially twice a day. It’s also a good idea to keep away from substances that stain your teeth – think coffee and red wine. If you have to drink substances that stain, consider using a straw to keep your teeth safe from staining. It’s also vital that you check in with your dentist every six months. Make sure that you have regular dental checkups, as well as regular visits to see the hygienist. Dentists can spot early signs of decay and can advise you on the best ways to deal with it and prevent further damage.
Be proactive about fixing problems
Whatever issue you have with your teeth, make sure that you are proactive about fixing problems. Whether it’s an overbite causing issues, staining that’s upsetting you, or wonky teeth that’s impacting your confidence, don’t fail to deal with the issue. The good news is that thanks to advancements in dentistry, cosmetic treatments are quick and painless, and far more affordable than they previously were. For instance, say you aren’t keen on how your teeth are aligned, you could opt to have clear braces used to straighten them quickly, painlessly, and for an affordable price. If yellowing teeth are an issue, consider looking at DIY whitening treatments as a starting point. If these don’t work, then perhaps seeing a cosmetic dentist for whitening treatment, could be a good next step to take.
Get your makeup right
This might sound strange but when it comes to achieving a flawless smile, makeup has an impact. You want to avoid any lipsticks with a yellow undertone – these can make your teeth look yellow-hued. Instead, pick lipsticks in berry shades or coral tones. You can also apply a lip liner around your lips and top your lipstick with a coat of gloss, for an even more flawless smile. Highlighting your lips in this way will help to make them seem fuller, and so, will make your teeth appear whiter.
