Perfect, Hollywood teeth are something we all want, whether we want to admit it or not. Everybody has something they would like to change about their body – or at the very least, improve. Are you completely happy with the teeth you have? You might be surprised to hear that the majority of people are not! Here are some easy, hassle-free steps to get the teeth you’ve always wanted:
Teeth whitening at home
One of the most common issues people have with their teeth is the shade. Teeth experience wear and tear just like everything else, and years of it, simply, shows. A professional-looking teeth whitening can be performed at home for less effort and money than you think! You can get one for generally less than cheaper dental work. Always choose a whitening kit that comes recommended by your nearest dental association or your personal dentist, and make sure that you follow the instructions listed with the product!
Professional teeth whitening
Maybe you aren’t happy with the results you got from your home whitening session, or maybe you just don’t want to do it yourself. If for whatever reason, you don’t want to go through the process of a home whitening kit yourself, you can go for a professional teeth whitening: This can sometimes offer results a home-kit can’t, and your dentist has your dental health at heart. You’ll also have the peace of mind of knowing that you can also go for a full and comprehensive mouth cleaning at the same time.
Changing your diet
Your diet has a huge impact on the health of your teeth – and, it kind of goes without saying, your overall health. First, getting a balanced diet will have a marked improvement in your health and the state of your teeth; you’ll also feel better. That’s worth doing. You might also want to cut out food items known for staining your teeth, especially if you’ve recently had a whitening done: This includes coffee and red wine, generally considered to be the worst culprits when it comes to staining teeth.
Changing your toothbrush…no, really!
You should change your toothbrush. In fact, you should change your toothbrush regularly. This is something that seems obvious, but something that very few people know – or do. Over time, your toothbrush becomes worn just like anything else, and instead of cleaning your teeth, the bristles are instead just getting into the gums and other places where they shouldn’t; this can lead to unintentionally bleeding gums, repeated mouth infection and all sorts of seriously nasty problems you would much rather stay away from. Change your toothbrush regularly – both for your health and your hygiene!
Changing your brushing habits
How healthy are your brushing habits? Most people like to think that they’ve got a fair handle on their mouth hygiene, but you might be surprised to hear that you could be making some changes to your daily routine. Brushing your teeth twice a day is recommended, healthy advice – but the same is not true for brushing your teeth several times per day, more than necessary, will cause far more harm than good to your tooth enamel! The same is true for the over-use of breath mints and gum, which can eventually aggravate existing heart problems and cause tooth decay.
