Get a Fashionable Smile with These TipsPoway and San Diego, CA

In the fashion world, styles are ever changing. Whether you are a fashionista or not, there is one thing that never goes out of style – a gorgeous smile. Even if your outfit is on fleek, an unsightly smile can throw off your whole image.

A recent study published in PR Newswire found that first impressions are everything. People with straight, white teeth are more likely to be smarter, successful, and go on more dates. Whether you are interviewing for a new job or in the dating scene, make sure your smile says it all at the first take.

Good oral hygiene, as well as routine dental examinations and cleanings are essential to maintaining a gorgeous smile, but here are some tips for making sure your smile is always in style.

Wear white year round

Get whiter teeth at the dentist in as little as one visit! If you prefer, you can glam it up at home by getting custom made whitening trays and professional grade whitening gel from your dentist. Think those in-the-box whitening strips from the store will save you money? Think again, those boxes are just full of empty promises. See the dentist for the real deal whitening treatment.

Cover up in style

Want a smile makeover? Try veneers which are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that are custom designed to fit directly over the front sides of your teeth. Not only can you choose a whiter shade, but also these coverings will hide imperfections in your teeth including minor chips, crookedness, gaps, or misshapen teeth.

Outerwear to turn shabby teeth classy

A classy look isn’t just for dinner at 7 p.m. or brunch on Sundays. Dental crowns provide a classy look to shabby teeth as they cover the entire exterior of a tooth. If your teeth are worn down, damaged by old fillings, or brittle, crowns can protect your teeth while providing a classy look.

Repair old fillings with new white ones

Those old silver fillings are a thing of the past. Not only do these fillings cause damage to your teeth, but also they can make your smile look drab. Replace silver fillings with new tooth-colored composites.

Add layers for a total transformation

Cosmetic bonding uses the same composite material used for fillings but can cover a multitude of cosmetic dental issues just like veneers, but are a less expensive option. This procedure can typically be completed in just one visit!

Complete your look

Got a missing tooth? A dental implant can have you smiling with confidence again in no time. Not only is it a permanent tooth replacement option, but it is designed to last a lifetime!
