three ways to a healthier smile

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, something that helps you garner success, and is something you often find yourself criticizing. That’s why it’s time to take your smile seriously in 2023, after all, your teeth are the only part of your body that can’t repair themselves. Embark on your better smile journey with these three quick steps!

1. Keep Up Your Routine

Life is busy, especially at the beginning of the year when you are trying to accomplish your resolutions. However, keeping up with your oral hygiene routine is crucial to a better smile! Brushing for two minutes twice daily and flossing once daily can help obtain an optimal smile. The average person spends about thirty-eight days brushing their teeth in a lifetime and for good reason!

2. Limit Stain Causing Activities

Your teeth are made of dentin and are covered with hard but porous enamel. That’s why over time, everything that you eat and drink takes a toll on your teeth. Despite the 730 liters of saliva you produce a year, it’s not enough to keep your teeth free of stains. What you can do to limit staining is to reduce the amount of red wine, dark soda, and other various acidic and dark liquids/foods you consume. If you’re a smoker, this would be the perfect time to reconsider your habit and whether or not to continue it based on the appearance of your smile.

3. See Your Dentist Biannually

One of the best ways to have a great smile is to schedule your bi-annual dentist appointment and attend them. This way you can get excellent care from your dentist and a deep dental cleaning from hygienists. Cleanings from a team of professionals make a world of difference as opposed to you and your toothbrush alone. Dentists can also help detect issues with your smile that you may not see and that could be potentially problematic.

A successful smile opens many doors. It releases endorphins, making you happier and more attractive to others, it’s contagious. Smiling uplifts the mood around you, and therefore makes you more likable and more successful in your career. It’s time to make your smile one of the best parts of 2023 and there’s no better way to do that than by scheduling your dentist appointment with us at Brush Dental in Seattle.
