How to Achieve the Perfect Smile at Any Age

A great smile can change your life. It makes you more attractive and approachable while also boosting your own confidence. However, a smile you don’t love can prevent you from smiling or laughing in public or photos, which can have a negative effect on your self-esteem. Even though everyone has the best intentions for their oral health, it’s not always possible to maintain your dream smile throughout life.

Are your “pearly whites” not looking so pearly? No matter what your teeth look like, with the help of expert dental services in Parramatta, you can craft a smile you love.

Achieving Your Dream Smile

Ready to start crafting your perfect smile? Keep these strategies in mind to stop problems before they begin, or fix what you don’t like. It’s never too late to take control of your oral health!

Preventative Care

Whether your teeth are straight and white or need some work, preventative care helps to avoid complications like gum disease that can put your smile in danger.

Brushing helps to remove plaque buildup on and between your teeth that eats away at the bright white enamel that protects them. It also removes substances like sugary or acidic drinks that can eat away at your enamel over time. Brushing twice per day is recommended.

Flossing also prevents buildup between your teeth that can cause periodontal disease that puts you at risk of unsightly receding gums or tooth loss. Floss alongside your tooth brushing for the best results.

Routine Dental Visits allow your dentist in Parramatta to keep an eye on your oral health. Through regular exams, cleanings, and x-rays, they can detect and address problems before they become worse.

Active Treatments

Even if your preventative care is top notch, your smile may still run into hiccups. When something does hurt your smile, you can help repair it with dental treatments.

Restorative Procedures address many of the common problems that people of all ages face. Accidents, gum disease, or even just having a sweet tooth can seriously impact your mouth. Cavity fillings, extractions, and root canals are just a few procedures that can be completed by your Parramatta dentist to address any health problems that arise.

Braces work by correcting the jaw and teeth at the same time. Overbite or underbite is a common complaint for people who want a perfect smile because it changes the way teeth present themselves during a smile. If teeth become crooked or there is a jaw malformation, braces (or other corrective procedures) can be used to fix them over time.

Tooth Whitening helps to address some of the yellowing you get from drinking certain beverages. Your dentist can perform in-depth tooth whitening that helps to penetrate to reach the discoloration inside. There are also at-home treatments that may be effective for some people.

Cosmetic Dentistry

When all else fails, you don’t have to give up on your smile just yet. Chips, gaps, and tooth loss can be addressed with the help of cosmetic dentistry.

Crowns are used to cover a damaged tooth, providing a perfect shape and color without removing the tooth entirely.

Bonds are made of a plastic material that bonds to the tooth and hardens when light is applied. These can be molded by the dentist to the desired shape to fit any smile.

Veneers are similar to bonds, attaching to the front of the tooth and providing the perfect shape and color that you want.

Implants are surgically implanted into your jaw, providing a post for a replacement tooth to be implanted.
