An aesthetically pleasing and bright smile always creates a positive first impression on others. But the most important thing is that it has a positive effect on our psychology and thus benefit our personal, social and professional life.
In recent years, innovative developments in the field of Cosmetic Dentistry have enabled all of us to improve our smile!
There are many dental treatments that can improve the appearance of our smile. Among the most important, is Orthodontics which deals both with the alignment of the teeth in a desired new position, and with the improvement of the position and/or relationship of the jaws.
At young ages (7-8 years old), this specific treatment can prevent the creation of complex orthodontic problems with the braces we all know (metal and ceramic). Orthodontics for adults who now mainly choose to align their teeth by placing invisible aligners is now constantly gaining ground.
In addition to the alignment of the teeth, an attractive smile also depends a lot on their color, and now the white, bright smile has more and more fans. Teeth whitening is a procedure in which pigments are removed from the teeth, making them whiter. It is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry which is carried out using an LED lamp and/or with night mouthguards.
But before carrying out the above two practices, it would be good to have taken care of the health of our teeth by doing regular preventive dental checks, on a six-month basis, in order to avoid the occurrence of dental diseases. Preventive visits to the Dentist determine the longevity of our teeth, because if there is a problem and it is diagnosed early, further deterioration or destruction is prevented.
In addition to the above treatments, the most important role in maintaining oral health is daily frequent brushing at least 2 times a day, using floss and interdental brushes.
A beautiful and healthy smile is a powerful tool for every person because it can positively affect their daily life. So if there is a desire to improve it, it would be good to take advantage of it properly and in time!
