How is it that every celebrity seems to have perfectly straight, perfectly white teeth? We will let you in on a little secret. They do not have perfect teeth. They have great oral health habits and excellent dentists. You can do the same to get your own celebrity smile.
Take Care of Your Teeth
The first step to having a smile that seems to shine for miles is to brush at least twice per day. You should also floss at least once per day and periodically use a fluoride-based mouth wash that will give your teeth the minerals they need to thrive. For the best results, always use products that your dentist has recommended for you.
Get Regular Checkups
Actually going to see your dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC is another important part of proper dental care. Our own dentist, Dr. Kevin Hogan, has the proper tools to reach deep between your teeth and remove staining and plaque that the tools you use for teeth cleaning at home cannot reach. He can also check for signs of other problems to ensure your teeth look amazing for years to come.
Pay Attention to What You Eat or Drink
Coffee may seem like it is life, but it is also taking the life out of your teeth. So is alcohol, soda, tea and nearly every dark food or drink. When you can, avoid them. If you cannot get through the day without your caffeine fix, use a straw to drink them. This prevents them from touching your teeth as much. Brush right after you eat or drink as often as you can.
Cigarettes are bad for your heart, they are bad for your lungs and they are bad for your teeth. Tar and nicotine build up to stain and can even lead your teeth and gums to erode and cause more serious health issues.
