07 Jan Celebrity Dentist Reveals 3 Secrets to a Perfect Smile
Celebrity Cosmetic Dentist and the founder of Experteeth Dental Care, Dr. Ridhi Katara reveals 3 secrets to achieve that captivating smile, wherever you go.
“Life is too short. Smile while you still have teeth.” While we have heard this saying a lot; from personal experience, most of us can say that we do not implement it. This is because we do not like to smile as often as we should since we are not comfortable with our teeth. For our teeth can make or break a smile.
There is little doubt that a genuine smile is a truly wonderful thing. However, despite laughing around eight times a day, research shows that
a) a lot of us are self-conscious about our teeth and yet, conversely
b) we’re still not very good at actually looking after our teeth.
1. Smile designing
At the top of everyone’s list is Smile Designing. Usually done using Porcelain Veneers, it’s the fastest, minimally invasive, and absolutely painless method to get you that Hollywood smile you always desired. Porcelain Veneers are porcelain facings done on your own original teeth that give you the perfect smile!
2. Daily brushing & flossing
Cosmetic dentistry can’t work miracles. If your foundations are weak, you won’t see the results you might be hoping for. Brushing twice daily and flossing is non-negotiable if you don’t want to see decay set in.
If you have ever tried to fib your way through a dental examination, you’re in for a shock. Not content with just cleaning, the latest electric toothbrushes connect to an app on your phone so that you can cast a glance at where your brushing routine may be falling short. Toothbrushes like Oral-B Genius X with Artificial Intelligence and Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected, use motion sensors to analyze your brushing technique and report back on areas where improvement is needed. One day soon, dentists will be able to use this information too to create a tailored program for your own needs.
3. Steer Clear of natural alternatives
Like most sectors of the health and beauty industry, oral care is feeling the impact of consumers looking for natural and organic products. However, unlike your skincare routine, your at-home dental regimen is unlikely to benefit from natural products. Charcoal toothpaste, for example, should be avoided at all costs.
People have just become way too health-obsessed, to the point that they embrace every ongoing fad. Charcoal has its benefits—for example, it’s used in hospitals to counteract the effects of poison—but it doesn’t have a place in your dental routine. At worst, it’s too abrasive and strips away your enamel, damaging your teeth and staining white fillings, and because it’s black, you tend to scrub harder to remove it. At best, it does absolutely nothing, making it a complete waste of money.
Now you know the secrets to getting a gorgeous smile. Steal them and make your smile worthy of a Hollywood photoshoot!
