We think everyone deserves a more beautiful smile, but maybe not for the reasons you may think. Smiles don’t just have vanity appeal. Smiles can make a big impact on our confidence and interactions with others, which has downstream effects on things such as job satisfaction, relationships, and other essential parts of a healthy, happy life.
Some people require significant dental treatments to restore their smiles to their original beauty. Other patients need to simply maintain their current state of health to keep a beautiful smile intact. Whether you got your smile through a series of advanced procedures or by consistently practicing good oral hygiene over many years, there are eight steps you can take to ensure that your smile stays beautiful for a long time.
Part Four: Remove Plaque Regularly
Plaque is a dangerous substance that, when not cleaned, can lead to hard tartar, or calculus, which can cause significant gum and periodontal disease. In order to remove plaque on a regular basis, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day (or after every meal) and floss every day. Visiting the dentist twice a year for routine cleanings is another important step you can take to remove plaque.
