Summer is officially here, which means the arrival of weddings, graduation parties and family vacations. We want to look and feel our best when we are out, right? Well, looking good should always include a radiant (and healthy) smile.
To get the summer party started, our dental experts at Wildwood Dental are sharing 5 ways to spruce-up your smile this summer:
Maintain regular dental check-ups. We recommended you visit us office every six months. Having your teeth professionally cleaned helps remove stain and tarter buildup and ensures good overall oral health.
Cut back on drinking red wine, coffee, teas, and sodas to avoid staining your teeth. Try these drinks instead! If you are a cigarette smoker, this also causes yellowing of the teeth, so it is recommended that you also avoid that or quit if possible.
Visit us to learn about whitening options. Trying a simple whitening procedure either with at home trays or with our in-office professional ZOOM® treatment can take years off your smile.
Floss. Flossing your teeth not only promotes healthy gums, but it also helps to remove unwanted food from in between your teeth so you are always ready for photos with friends.
Choose smile-friendly foods at parties and backyard BBQs. Crisp fruits and raw vegetables like apples, carrots and celery help clean plaque from teeth and freshen your breath.
Consider treatment options. Bonding, veneers and crowns can correct decay, broken teeth and cover up discoloration. Additionally, missing teeth can be replaced with implants and bridges. We have wonderful ways to correct any situation to give you the smile you deserve.
