A Healthy Smile Never Goes Out of Style
Want to look and feel your absolute best? According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the first step toward this goal is investing in your smile. Having an attractive, healthy smile projects confidence, and is an important facet for both emotional and physical wellness.
A recent survey by the AACD reports that 70 percent of women feel their self-confidence hinges on how their smile appears to others. But having a “perfect” smile isn’t only about aesthetics. Many patients tout the intrinsic benefits of having straighter, whiter teeth that are well-maintained with good oral hygiene. Not only is there less risk of gingivitis and gum disease, patients are no longer embarrassed by misaligned or discolored teeth. A smile makeover can help boost self-esteem and give patients a fresh new outlook on life!
The last decade has seen major advancements in cosmetic dentistry, which have garnered widespread attention. From same day implants and laser teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, thousands of people are choosing to improve their smiles and loving the results!
Here at Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, our Suffolk County cosmetic dentists can help you reach your goal of achieving a luminous, beautiful smile – a lifetime investment that is worth every penny!
Ways to invest in your smile
- Don’t skip dental check-ups : According to the AACD poll, 26 percent of people surveyed said that skipping routine dental visits had a negative impact on their smile. So next time you’re scheduling a haircut or an oil change for your vehicle, call your dentist and make an appointment for cleaning. Remember that prevention is key and twice-yearly exams can reveal small problems before they become serious.
- Avoid drinks and foods that stain teeth: Daily brushing and flossing is important, but what about foods and liquids that can damage your teeth? Thirty six percent of survey respondents say that coffee and tea has left their pearly whites less than stunning. Sodas, wine and berries can also discolor teeth. The AACD recommends smile-friendly foods such as celery, ginger, carrots and broccoli, which help prevent tooth enamel erosion and also contain natural anti-inflammatory properties.
- Seek out a qualified cosmetic dentist: When it comes to your oral health, look for a highly experienced cosmetic dentist in your area. After a thorough assessment, they can tell you which kind or combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments are recommended for your particular concerns and issues.
