In this article, we´ll be giving you some tips to help you achieve (and maintain) a bright-looking, healthy smile. Let´s begin!

A Healthy Smile, 5 Useful Tips

Sadly, not everybody´s born with perfect teeth, and some people require expert help to achieve their dream smile. That´s why keeping up with your dental checkups is so important.

However, it´s not just going to the dentist. Choose a dental professional who really cares for your oral health. Don´t trust your teeth´ well-being to just about anyone.

As we already mentioned, sometimes more specific treatments are necessary to improve a patient´s smile. Nevertheless, there´re still things you can do for yourself to improve your smile´s health/appearance.

Good oral hygiene habits

Gently brush your teeth in circular motions after every meal (or at the very least twice a day) using a soft-bristled toothbrush. For next-level cleaning, pick an electric or sonic toothbrush.

Combining this with daily, thorough flossing will clean even the hardest-to-reach areas of your mouth. There are also water flossers that clean better and are more fun to use.

Adding mouthwash (at least once a day) to your oral health routine is the perfect complement. Using a fluoride mouthwash just before bedtime kills bacteria and helps remineralise tooth enamel.

Keep a balanced (and healthy) diet.

It might seem like an understatement, but eating balanced and healthy is one of the simplest ways of caring for your gums and teeth.

Start by limiting sugary foods and drinks, and consume a balanced amount of leafy green and crunchy vegetables instead. Complement this with lots of protein-rich foods.

Drink enough water

Regularly drinking water not only maintains you hydrated. It also helps keep your teeth clean by washing away bacteria and acids inside your mouth.

It´ll also favour saliva production, thus preventing dry mouth, bad breath, and burning mouth syndrome.

Make your own teeth whitener.

From time to time, you can use a homemade mix that not only helps whiten your teeth. It also benefits gum tissue and has the added benefit of destroying coronavirus.

It´s made by mixing:

  • 1/2 teaspoon of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
  • One teaspoon of baking soda
  • One tablespoon of coconut oil

Just be aware that, being baking soda is a mild abrasive, and long-term use can damage your gums and tooth enamel. Also, always use it with a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Regularly visit your dentist

Keeping up with your dental checkups and regular cleaning sessions ensures your smile is in top shape. It´ll also help treat early any other dental issues.

Additionally, it allows your dentist to identify and correct cracks, stains, or any other aesthetic imperfection through cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Finally, keep in mind that achieving a healthier, brighter smile will make you feel better about yourself and overall much more confident.
