Most individuals view spring cleaning as a time to focus on the home, however it can be considered a time for cleaning and refreshing multiple areas of your life. Your teeth are an important part of your overall health, and a nice smile is a sign of beauty, status and healthiness. There are a few ways that you can go about spring cleaning your teeth.
Teeth whitening is a great way to brighten your smile, which is evident by how it has grown in popularity over the last few years. There are many different options available, including a variety of at-home kits, mouthwashes and toothpastes. Though these options may be cheaper, a professional whitening job is quicker and produces longer-lasting results. Veneers are another option for brightening your smile. It is a more permanent solution, with pieces of porcelain being bonded to your teeth, that provides a built-in guard against stains.
Having properly aligned teeth is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also helps with chewing and maintaining the health of your teeth. Gaps can give way to bacteria build up in the mouth, which can cause issues such as gingivitis and even lead to gum disease. If your teeth are or seem to be becoming crooked, consider speaking with your dentist about possible alignment methods, including braces or retainers.
When an individual is not having any oral issues it can be easy to forget or forgo a yearly oral exam. However, just like with the rest of the body, a yearly exam can help to catch and prevent certain oral issues. Scheduling it around spring cleaning can be a great reminder and a way to refresh your mouth.
Any of these methods, or a combination of a few, can help you to spring clean your teeth. Not only will it give you a beautiful smile, but it will also help to maintain your oral health. For more information and to review your options, contact your local dentist today.
