Embarrassed to smile? 5 ways to make you smile again

Are you embarrassed to show your smile due to crooked, stained teeth, gum disease or bad breath? There are many affordable options now available that address each of these potentially embarrassing issues. Below reveals five options that are guaranteed to make you smile once more.

1. Stained teeth? Why not try teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a quick and painless way to remove stains, bringing your teeth to a whiter yet natural colour. At Dentalini we use Zoom whitening instead of UV treatment, which means a more comfortable treatment, immediate results in an hour and reduced sensitivity. Having white teeth improves your confidence beyond expectations.

2. Crooked teeth

Many of us have suffered from crooked teeth growing up, but haven’t been able to afford braces and now that we’re adults we don’t really want to be wearing braces. However there is an affordable option – Invisalign. Invisalign is a clear braces option that is also removable; perfect for weddings and job interviews.

If this doesn’t suit your needs, veneers can be your option of correcting crooked teeth without the hassle of longer braces treatment!!

3. Bad Breath

No one wants to admit they have bad breath and sometimes we don’t even realise we do. The causes of bad breath can be from a variety of reasons, whether it be gum disease, tooth decay, sickness or personal habits. Each of these can be treated; if you come in for an appointment we can diagnose the best course of action, whether it be gum disease treatment, filling, root canal treatment, diet management or even to be referred to a specialist. Bad breath shouldn’t stop you from smiling anymore.

4. Gaps between the teeth

Sometimes we don’t want to have to go through the whole process of braces just to close a gap and so an option to achieve a closed gap is to use porcelain veneers. Veneers are great not only for closing a gap between teeth, but can also whiten stained or discoloured teeth or cover cracks, chips or serrations. Porcelain veneers last for up to 10-30 years, therefore maintain your smile for decades to come.

5. Bad dental hygiene

Okay, so many of us hate to visit the dentist. The perception of dentists is that the experience is always painful and ends up being expensive. The thing is, the longer we leave an appointment the worse our dental hygiene becomes; meaning a higher likelihood of decay, gum disease, bad breath etc. The more regularly we visit a dentist the less painful it becomes as we are keeping on top of any issues before they become problems. Teeth cleaning becomes easier the more regular you make it and having great dental hygiene makes you feel good and want to smile more!

As can be seen, many of the things that keep us from smiling can be easily avoided or fixed. You don’t have to live in pain or discomfit as there are many options available to make you smile again. For more information regarding your dental health, contact Dentalini on 8290 3000.
