Did you know that your smile is the first thing people notice about you? Your smile can also “reveal” your age. So, how do you keep your smile looking young? Luckily, we have some great tips to help you maintaining you smile looking young and healthy.
Good Oral Hygiene Habits. Besides being extremely important for your oral health, regular dentist visits and good oral hygiene habits can definitely improve the appearance of your smile. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, avoiding cigarettes and tobacco, and regular visits to your dentist is one of the most effective ways to keep your smile healthy and looking younger.
Avoid Stains. Certain foods such as: coffee, tea, red wine, soy sauce, tomato sauce, red or dark fruit juices can contribute to stains on your teeth. A great tip to follow for avoiding these stains is rinsing your mouth after you’ve consumed any of these foods. You can also consider getting your teeth professionally cleaned.

Take Care of Infections or Inflammations. A younger looking smile also means a healthier smile. One of the main reasons why regular visits to your dentist are so important is because our specialists are able to detect any infections, bacteria, or any underlying issues that you may have. Regular visits to your dentist should be every 6 months. If you have periodontal disease, then you should schedule visits every 3 months for periodontal maintenance.
