Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and thought that your teeth weren’t looking as great as they could be? Sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint the issue – maybe your teeth are looking a little yellow, your gums seem red and puffy, or they just aren’t as straight as they once were. Whatever your particular case may be, at Southeast Dental we have the solution for a picture-perfect smile.
Brushing – Are you brushing your teeth properly? Improper brushing is more common than you think, and there are many factors that affect it. The right toothbrush, the proper pressure applied, the frequency, and even the duration. Our post about the right way to brush should give you some guidance.
Flossing – Flossing is overlooked by many, but it is an important part of your daily hygiene. Throughout each day, food debris is caught between your teeth and left to cause harmful bacteria that brushing alone can’t reach. Daily flossing not only helps to remove that debris before it stains or causes problems, but it also strengthens your gums and prevents periodontal diseases that can make gums look red and swollen.
Whitening – Yellow teeth happen. Even when you stick to your daily brushing, stay away from staining foods and drinks, and floss regularly. Some teeth just yellow naturally, and that’s completely normal. But if the colour of your teeth bothers you, consider professional teeth whitening to make your smile a little brighter.
Invisalign – When most people think of teeth straightening, they picture a teenager with metal braces. But now there are better options, such as Invisgalin, and they are often used by adults who want straighter teeth without the look of braces.
Regular dental visits – Your dentist plays a large role in making your teeth look their best. By keeping up with regular cleanings and check-ups, your dental team at Southeast Dental is able to identify any potential problems and offer solutions. Not to mention, an in-office cleaning produces your healthiest, cleanest smile. To book your next appointment at our Markham dental office, call 905-471-2002 or book online.
