While there may be several reasons not to smile these days, one of them shouldn’t be your smile itself. Factually, every day, numerous Americans are hiding and withholding their smiles from others for the shear self-consciousness of teeth of which they are not proud. Whether yellowed, crooked, missing or just not altogether pleasant, such conditions keep people from smiling. So, here are 3 ways we can make you smile.
Prevention is the best remedy
While you may have heard that proper care and prevention is the best remedy for tooth decay, you may not have all the facts about prevention itself. This is a two-fold effort between you and your Irving dentist. On your end, flossing, brushing and other simple efforts can go a long way toward a long-lasting smile. Then again, not letting too much time pass between check-ups and cleanings would all but guarantee a smile of lasting duration. Following dental recommendations in this case is key.
Getting the jump on symptoms as soon as they occur
Perhaps a slightly less-known factor is the fact that “minor” dental conditions tend to get ignored and “put off” until desperation sets in due to the severity of a condition. Seekers of an Irving dentist are often in this situation. This can include anything from a chipped tooth to minor pain and even movement of teeth to a less-than-desirable position. This is another two-fold proposition. By staying on top of conditions such as these, as soon as they occur, regardless of how minor, much steeper levels of intervention can be avoided and better results attained. In other words, contact the dentist as soon as you experience anything less than optimum. Be ready for emergencies before they happen.
There is also cosmetic dentistry
In this busy world, even if your habits are decent, you can still develop conditions such as a lost or damaged tooth, yellowing or other undesirable conditions. Of course, getting on top of the condition early is key. But sometimes, even with our best efforts, it gets put off a little longer than necessary. This is a time to seek an Irving dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening, implants and even adult braces are a few of the many types of cosmetic procedures to restore nearly any smile.
