~ Collaborative Post ~ Habits For A Better Looking Smile

"When it comes to your beauty, there is much you can do.

You can care for your skin, style your hair, and buy the clothes that perfectly suit your body shape. You can do all these things and more to boost your attractiveness. However, all of your hard work will be undone if, when you open your mouth, your teeth let you down. If they are crooked, broken, and discoloured, your lovely smile will be less than impressive in the eyes of others or when you're looking in the mirror.

Of course, there are steps you can take to improve matters. By visiting an emergency dentist when you suddenly crack a tooth, you can get it repaired before things get worse. Your regular dentist will straighten your teeth with corrective surgery. And by using a teeth-whitening system, you can make your teeth sparkle again. So, all isn't lost if you do have issues with your teeth. However, your best course of action for the long-term health of your teeth is to conform to better habits in your daily life. You will then maintain your smile for longer and have less need to bankrupt yourself with dental fees.

Here are some suggestions for you.

#1: Floss on a daily basis

You know you need to brush your teeth, but how often do you floss? There are places in your mouth where your toothbrush can't reach, so flossing should become part of your daily routine. Plaque will build up if you don't, and that will lead to unhealthy looking and feeling teeth. So, be sure to pick up a packet of dental floss the next time you're at the supermarket, or consider purchasing a water flosser if you can't stand flossing the regular way.

#2: Drink plenty of water

You know that drinking water is good for you anyway, as it can hydrate your skin, and give you more energy when you're going about your day. However, water is also a good way to clean your teeth on the go, especially tap water which contains the fluoride that you would normally get in your toothpaste. Water is also a better alternative to those drinks that can erode and discolour your teeth, such as tea, wine, and fizzy drinks. So, make the switch for healthier teeth. 

#3: See your dentist regularly

As we suggested earlier, seeing the dentist can be expensive. However, your appointments will be even more expensive when your teeth start to show physical signs of wear and tear, and when you start to feel toothache. So, book your 6-monthly appointments, and see your dentist. Not only will he check for any problems, but he will help you maintain your beautiful smile by removing any plaque and tartar from your pearly whities!

#4: Eat a better diet

Certain foods, such as those high in sugar or starch, are bad for your teeth. We are thinking about chocolatey items, cakes, processed meals, and pasta. You don't have to eliminate them from your diet altogether if your willpower is weak, but you do need to place more focus on those foods that will strengthen your teeth and reverse any damage. Cheese, leafy greens, and carrot sticks are just a few of the foods that have healthy properties for your teeth. Check out this list for more, and add them to your shopping basket."
