What makes a great smile?
Smiling can have a positive impact on your mood and on the moods of people around you. It can give you an instant boost, even when you’re having a bad day.
However, not everyone is comfortable smiling. There are a number of problems that can turn a great smile bad, but there are solutions that can transform any smile.
The positioning of your teeth plays a huge part in a great looking smile. If your teeth are crooked, missing or poorly spaced it can contribute to a poor looking smile and low smile confidence.
Misaligned teeth can be straightened by a skilled orthodontist. A treatment such as Invisalign can work wonders with your smile, giving you a huge boost in confidence.
All your teeth
A good smile features all of a person’s teeth. Tooth loss can occur for a variety of reasons, from untreated cavities to injury. Poor oral hygiene can also lead to tooth loss.
A periodontist can help people avoid losing their teeth. There are instances when tooth loss is inevitable but in many cases, periodontists can help you keep your own teeth.
Sometimes there is no option but having an implant to replace a missing tooth. Your Smile Specialist can work with an implant specialist to straighten your teeth, correct your bite and prepare the space for the implant to go into.
A full set of teeth, apart from looking better, are also needed for proper chewing, biting and eating!
Healthy gums play a big part in creating a beautiful smile. Healthy gums are light pink in colour and firm to the touch. A warning sign is if your gums have pulled away from your teeth, bleed or feel puffy. You should see your family dentist right away if you have these symptoms. If needed, he will refer you to a gum specialist.
In the Hollywood age, we all want bright white teeth. Sadly many foods and drinks stain your teeth. There are treatments for yellowing teeth:
- Laser whitening
- Specialist home whitening kits from your dentist
- Regular scales and polished in conjunction with a good whitening toothpaste
