How to Improve Gum HealthAugust 25, 2019
Bad breath? Yellow teeth? Chips or missing teeth? Here are the top 5 ways to get your smile looking in top-top shape.
Good oral health.
It goes without saying that a healthy mouth is a more attractive mouth. Brushing twice and flossing once daily will cure bad breath, reduce staining, and improve gum health. Swapping out your manual tooth brush for an electric one will help you get a more thorough clean. Adding GC Tooth Mousse to your oral health routine can also improve the brightness of your smile by improving the mineral content of your teeth.
Drinking water or milk.
Swapping out your usual tea, coffee, fizzy drink, or juice for water or plain milk can do wonders for your smile. Water is colourless and doesn’t cause staining, while milk contains vital minerals your teeth rely on. Tea, coffee, fizzy drink, and juice are all acidic, and will cause wear and erosion on your teeth. Water and milk can reduce the impact of acid wear, improving your smile.
The bacteria in your mouth love sugar. If your diet is high in sugar it is likely you have a greater oral bacteria presence. Bacteria in your mouth form a film on your teeth known as plaque. This leads to decay and other dental conditions such as gingivitis and periodontal disease. Try swapping lollies for sugar free gum and see the difference it makes to your smile.
Professional teeth whitening can transform your teeth from yellow and discoloured to brilliant white. There are many various whitening services available, so it’s best to book a consultation with your dentist. This way you can be sure you are undergoing the best treatment for your teeth and shade goal.
Prosthetics, crowns, and veneers.
Chipped, broken, or missing teeth can be detrimental to the appearance of your smile. Fortunately it’s not something you have to just put up with. Veneers and crowns can be used on chipped and broken teeth, both protecting them from further damage and restoring their appearance. For missing teeth dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures are all suitable options offering different advantages. Arrange a consultation to find out what treatment is best suited to you.
