I'm on my way to AZ to doggie sit again! So in the mean time, please enjoy a guest post by my friend Ash.
Professional Tooth Care
From time to time, it’s necessary to seek professional tooth care to keep your smile in tip-top shape. These visits start with twice-per-year cleanings and examinations, although you may also want to invest in occasional in-office tooth whitening treatments to whiten your smile. If your teeth aren’t perfectly straight or could use some cosmetic revisions, discuss with your dentist or orthodontist the possible treatment plans that could benefit your overall dental health.
dental plans include benefits for orthodontics and braces, which can help align the teeth into a more favorable and natural looking position than they have taken on their own. If you’re interested in braces but don’t want to sport a mouth full of metal, find out if your dentist or dental plan offers invisible orthodontics, which are more fashionable and discreet than traditional braces.
The make-up you choose can have a profound impact on the appearance of your smile. Bright pink and red lip polishes are great for accenting white teeth, and you can draw even more attention to your smile with a glossy finish. Try to avoid lip colors that are particularly muted or nude, however, as these shades can accentuate the teeth less than brighter colors.
Hygiene and Diet
It’s impossible to have a healthy, white smile if you don’t take care of your teeth at home. Invest in a quality toothbrush and whitening toothpaste that’s both effective for removing plaque. You can choose a toothpaste that’s also helpful in preventing enamel stains from common foods and beverages like coffee, tea and wine. Be sure to brush for approximately two minutes, two to three times per day. Follow-up with daily flossing and a mouthwash to keep your breath smelling fresh and your teeth pearly white.
