A New Year is (thankfully!) almost on its way and with it comes an opportunity to shake things up a bit and instil some healthier habits and lifestyle choices. Why not make 2021 the year your smile gets some TLC? Here are a few ways you can enhance your smile….
Consider orthodontic treatment
The choice of braces available are more diverse than ever before, so why not make 2021 the year you address crooked, misaligned or widely spaced teeth and gift yourself a healthier bite? Structural issues with your smile affect you in a variety of ways; not only does a crooked smile impact how you chew your food and cause speech impediments, it also alters your appearance and affects your emotional wellbeing. Consider options like Invisalgin or Six Month Smiles here at Corner House to improve the health and look of your smile.
Embrace the power of teeth whitening
Teeth whitening is a super cosmetic treatment that can make a massive difference to how you feel about your smile. Discolouration comes about in all of us at some point through general wear and tear as we age, though lifestyle factors like drinking alcohol and caffeinated drinks, as well as smoking can speed this process up. Here at Corner House we offer professional teeth whitening, where the trays are made to measure. This is particularly noteworthy as it’s the only safe means of having this treatment performed – anyone offering this treatment who isn’t create custom whitening trays from dental impressions is operating illegally.
Not only can a whiter and brighter smile improve your confidence and wellbeing, it’s also been known to boost career prospects.
Say so long to smoking
If you’re a smoker and are looking to improve your smile, this will be the most important piece of advice on the list. Quitting smoking will prevent your teeth from becoming increasingly discoloured, improve the freshness of your breath and significantly reduce your chances of developing mouth cancer. If you need support and advice on how to quit, our team are here to help – don’t hesitate to let us know during your appointment.
Address missing teeth
A missing tooth can cause havoc with your dental health, making it more difficult to brush, chew and speak. What’s more, having one or several missing teeth can leave you feeling reluctant to smile in front of others. Here at Corner House, patients have several options when it comes to replacing a missing tooth. Why not speak to one of our friendly experts, who can advise on the benefits of each?
Happy New Year!
