5 tips to fall (back) in love with your smile in 2018

It is often said that a smile says more than a thousand words – and it is one of the most important aspects that affects people’s first impression of you. It also has a huge impact on how happy and healthy you appear, as well as affecting people’s perception of your age. All things considered, if you choose to invest in one thing this year, your smile is a good choice. So just what can you do to fall back in love with your smile in 2018? Here are some top tips from our experts.

1. Back to basics

Before rushing into any kind of cosmetic treatment to improve or restore your smile, it is essential to make sure that you have the basics covered. More important than anything else is ensuring that you brush your teeth for two minutes at least twice a day, using a good quality fluoridated toothpaste. Brushing is the single biggest way to reduce the occurrence of tooth decay and gum disease, whilst fluoride helps to strengthen the outer layers of teeth, protecting them from the damaging effects of acid. Even if you have damaged, missing or loose teeth, maintaining an effective oral hygiene routine is the best way to protect your remaining teeth and ensure that you have the best chances of success with any cosmetic procedures you choose to have in the future. Should you have artificial replacement teeth, you’ll still need to brush well to make sure that everything stays in order for as long as possible.

2. Teeth Whitening

As we age, our teeth naturally loose some of their sparkle and shine. This can be further exaggerated by diet and lifestyle factors. Coffee, red wine and cigarettes are just a few examples of common causes of staining. Even a relatively small degree of staining can have a significant impact on your appearance and easily undermine your self confidence.

Luckily, with professional teeth whitening it is almost always possible to restore your teeth to a shade of white that you are happy and comfortable with. Here at Perfect Profiles, we offer two types of teeth whitening, depending on your lifestyle and needs – Philips Zoom! Home Kit Whitening and Philips Zoom! In-chair Whitening. The latter is by far the quickest and most effective option and recommended in most cases.

3. Dental Implants

Missing, failing or loose teeth can have a huge impact on your confidence and how you feel about yourself, making you reluctant to smile and even speak, as well as impacting on the pleasure of eating. Patients with missing teeth also often tell us that they have become reluctant ot get out and socialise, which can easily leaving them isolated and unhappy. Luckily, with the low cost dental implants available from Perfect Profiles, you could have your smile restored in no time and without breaking the bank. From a single tooth to a complete new set of teeth, dental implants are by far the most effective solution.

Not only do dental implants contribute to a greater sense of confidence and well-being, they can also significantly reduce the effects of ageing and other facial changes associated with missing teeth – as illustrated in the examples below:
