A recent survey found that most people find a natural smile most attractive and those overly bright white teeth and tooth jewelry are out of favor. A smile is a very personal thing and it is probably best to take this survey with a large pinch of salt, as after all a nice, natural looking smile can often have had a little bit of help and if a bright white smile makes you happy then why not go for it?
How Do I Go About Getting a Naturally Beautiful Smile?
It’s probably best, to begin with booking a check-up, particularly if you haven’t been to a dentist for a while. Book professional teeth cleaning appointment at the same time as this is a great place to begin your journey to a nicer and brighter smile. Professional teeth cleaning automatically helps brighten up your teeth by removing hardened plaque and some surface stains.
Your dentist will examine your teeth and make sure they are free from any diseases and they can also chat with you about ways to improve your smile. It might be worth thinking about ways you’d like to change the appearance of your teeth before you have this appointment. There are so many different things that can be done these days and which can produce dramatic or subtle changes. It’s entirely up to you and your budget as to which route you take.
Which Treatments Can Help?
There are numerous different treatments that can be useful for improving the appearance of teeth, some of which can be completed really quite quickly. One of the easiest things to do is to have your teeth whitened using Zoom whitening which is one of the best-known and most effective systems in the world.
Just one appointment will help boost the color of your teeth by several shades and sometimes it’s possible to combine this treatment with a custom home whitening kit that will include mouth trays made to fit exactly over your teeth and the correct prescription of whitening gel to lift the overall color even more. Bear in mind that everyone’s teeth react differently to being whitened and there is a limit as to how far you can safely go.
Other options include dental bonding and recontouring that use tooth-colored composite resin to gently reshape teeth. If your teeth are slightly out of alignment, then you might want to think about teeth straightening options. These days it’s possible to have cosmetic braces that only straighten your front teeth and which can work quite quickly. The speed of treatment is also reflected in the price.
What to Do If You Want a Hollywood White Smile
If you do want an ultra-bright smile, then you might need to think about porcelain veneers or crowns. There are certain porcelains that come in what are called Hollywood shades and which are extremely white. You can always ask your dentist if you are interested in this option but for a natural-looking result it’s always best to go for a white that’s no whiter than your eyes.
Your dentist can work with you to give you the smile of your dreams but the ultimate aim will be to ensure your teeth are healthy and strong so they hopefully last a lifetime.
