Celebrity smiles are seen all over magazines, social media outlets and everywhere in films and television. Many of us tend to not realise that celebrity smiles aren’t always natural, with most celebrities visiting their dental clinic for dental treatments to improve their smile.
Whether you’re looking to achieve a celebrity smile from the comfort of your own home or would prefer to venture out to a private dentist in London, here are seven helpful steps in achieving that celebrity smile.
Celebrities with the perfect smile do their part to keep their teeth looking healthy, sparkling and fresh, however, that doesn’t mean that they never look to their dentist for extra help in achieving their celebrity smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve dental aesthetics to give you a confident smile by working on the colour shape, size, alignment and positioning of your teeth.
If your teeth are stained, chipped and aren’t aligned, you may find cosmetic veneers an excellent option to consider in perfecting your smile. Veneers appear similar to natural teeth and aren’t a major procedure, as you can choose whether to have just one veneer fitted, a whole set or even on the top set of your teeth. Veneers are often used to close in small gaps between your teeth when otherwise, braces may not be the most suited treatment for you.
Orthodontics can correct any irregularities of the jaws and teeth, which can improve your confidence, appearance and reduce the chances of disease and decay.
With orthodontics, there are several treatments to choose from based on your preferences and desired end-result. If you’re looking for a flexible solution to straightening your teeth without the rush, Invisalign is likely to be the best option.
Promising to not interfere with your day-to-day life, Invisalign retainers are worn for three-week intervals and can be taken out at any time. The clear aligners are customised to fit the shape of your teeth and gradually move them to the desired positioning over an agreed course of time.
Our teeth can naturally stain over time. For those who smoke or tend to consume certain foods and drinks or even take specific medications, your teeth may stain much sooner and more significantly.
Teeth whitening can be an excellent solution for lightening your teeth using a safe dental bleaching agent. Individual results vary but we often see significant results over the course of just one treatment. The treatment is an excellent way of bringing your smile back to life and giving you more confidence in the way you look and feel, so there’s no surprise that teeth whitening is the number one cosmetic treatment for our patients.
Healthy and Balanced Diet
It goes without saying, but your diet is important and certain foods can damage your teeth. The more acidic a food is, the more damage it will cause and erosion it will inflict on your natural teeth. Certain foods can damage your teeth while others promote your health
Dental care is related to your oral health more than you think, so it’s important to choose wisely with your diet and take precautions by limiting unhealthy foods. For good dental health, we all require specific nutrients which are beneficial for healthy teeth and gums. Essentially, a diet with vitamins, minerals, iron, calcium, phosphorus and fluoride are some of the best elements to include in a day-to-day diet.
For more information, please take a read of our dietary guide for maintaining oral health.
Limit Alcohol Intake
It’s okay to enjoy the odd glass of wine as a Friday night treat, however, alcohol turns into sugar and before you know it, your sugar consumption is much higher than it should be.
Alcohol can damage the structure of the teeth and can cause erosion. In the same way that you would carefully choose your diet to protect your teeth and gums, you should also be careful with what you drink as well as how much you consume.
Aim to drink at least two litres of water each day to promote saliva production and to wash down any plaque or bacteria in your mouth.
Regular Dentist Visits
A visit to your dentist shouldn’t just be when you’re experiencing signs of oral health problems. You should be visiting the dentist every six months for a regular check-up, which is the perfect time for your dentist to spot any visible signs before they become a wider issue.
Regular dental visits keep your teeth and gums healthy while checking your overall oral health for any troubled areas. This can also be an opportunity for your dentist to remove any plaque and tartar buildup.
Play Your Part
Visiting the dentist is critical in maintaining your celebrity smile, but that isn’t the only way to keep your teeth in excellent shape. Our professional dentists can work wonders on any smile, however, you must play your part in taking care of your teeth at home.
Brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, floss between your teeth and also remember to use mouthwash on a regular basis to keep your teeth and gums in perfect condition.
