When you meet a person for the first time what do you immediately notice? Their shoes, how good looking they are? Well generally, we notice a person’s smile – especially if it’s a particularly bad one.

Improve your appearance, and first impression, by altering your smile with these 5 steps

1. Teeth Whitening

Brighten your smile so your teeth are a healthy white with a teeth whitening treatment. You can do this yourself with a home kit or for a safer and more effective procedure book an appointment with the professionals.

Teeth whitening procedures can lighten your teeth by multiple shades, taking them back to their natural colour before built up staining occurred. This is completely safe, and with the correct maintenance, results can last for months.

2. Invisible Braces

Gone are the days of metal wires, colourful elastic bands and painful train track jokes. Braces have now turned invisible!

Modern braces are like a see-through fitted gum shield, which is designed just for you. You can smile all you want, without affecting your speech; just make sure to remove the brace when eating or brushing your teeth.

So if you have a slightly crooked smile or would like to realign it slightly, invest in invisible braces from your orthodontist.

3. Veneers

Do you dream of having the perfect smile? Well, you can create one with dental veneers. But what exactly are veneers?

Dental veneers are extremely thin, porcelain caps that can be placed on top of discoloured, chipped or misaligned teeth to build a straight, white smile. Veneers are extremely strong and resilient to staining or chipping damage, and therefore are a popular choice with people looking for a complete make-over.

4. Dental Implants

Unlike uncomfortable or troublesome dentures, dental implants are a permanent fixture that will stop the bone receding and your jaw changing shape. And you can brush them as you would your natural teeth.

Titanium is used as a manmade replacement for the original tooth’s root and fused for security. A crown or bridge is then fitted on top to mimic the appearance of the surrounding teeth. As a result, when you smile, the tooth should blend in seamlessly with the others around it. And according to Smiles Denture Care Centre, that patients who have opted for dental implants London Ontario services often remark how similar the implant feels to their natural teeth. No one would ever know!
