How many of you think that Tom Cruise, David Beckham or Cheryl Cole are beautiful people with their good looks and beautiful smiles?
Most if not all of you am I right? But did you know that they did not always have perfect smiles?
Fortunately, the wonders of cosmetic dentistry have helped them enhance their smiles to the perfect smiles we know today.
So here are 5 ways you can get a celebrity like smile with the help of cosmetic dentistry:
Professional Teeth Whitening Therapy
People who want to have a white set of teeth are onto something as stained or yellowing teeth along with a bad smile will only make you look older than you are. Most if not all teeth stains are caused by the accumulation of debris over time. Unfortunately, regular brushing and routine dental checkups can’t always prevent this from happening. Undergoing teeth whitening treatment can help to remove the layers of staining and give your teeth that healthy white shine.
Dental Veneers and Crowns
Do you know that some of your favorite celebrities like Nicholas Cage, Hillary Duff and Tom Cruise have attained their perfect smiles through veneers? Veneers can be used for different purposes and can also act as caps which cover your natural teeth and help them attain proper shape and alignment.
Dental veneers can help in fixing most cosmetic issues almost instantly with this procedure.
Cosmetic tooth bonding procedures use a composite tooth colored resin material which is an alternative to porcelain veneers. Bonding can be used as a restorative cosmetic dentistry procedure if your teeth are discolored, cracked, chipped or out of alignment.
Teeth Straightening with Orthodontic Treatment
Many celebrities have had their teeth straightened out with braces or Invisalign treatments which complement their dazzling celebrity smiles. Most if not all of your favorite celebrities have undergone orthodontic treatment which has become a lot more widely available along with a wider variety of options right from traditional metal braces to Invisalign treatment.
Periodontal disease is a common cause of tooth loss with even celebrities falling prey to dental problems. Dental implants allow you to replace your entire tooth in the most health-conscious and secure way.
Dental implants are the ideal solution for replacing your missing or damaged teeth. This process involves the insertion of a tiny piece of titanium into your jaw where you have a missing tooth. These implants are not very different from your natural teeth. These implants can be inserted quite smoothly if you have good gum health and enough bone density.
But this requires you to maintain good oral hygiene religiously after getting your implants to ensure that your gums remain clean and healthy.
Brush and Floss Regularly
Brush your teeth twice daily after meals. You can also use mouthwash to reach all the places in your mouth.
Avoid Eating Too Many Acidic or Sugary Foods
The high content of sugary content found in some foods is harmful to your teeth as it can erode your tooth enamel and lead to gum disease. After consuming food, your mouth will naturally tend to retain acid so remember that regular eating will lead to an increased amount of time that the erosive fluids stay in your mouth.
Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Make sure to schedule and attend regular dental visits with your dentist to constantly have your oral health monitored.
