We always hear about preparing our bodies for the summer, but what about our smiles? A beautiful, healthy smile can improve any photograph and leave you feeling confident while enjoying your summer activities. Luckily, the process of gearing up your smile for the summer season is simple—just follow these five easy steps!
Replace your toothbrush.
Do you remember the last time you swapped out your toothbrush? If not, it may be time to visit the store. According to the American Dental Association, you should swap out your toothbrush every three to four months. This helps to ensure that your toothbrush is doing the best possible job of removing plaque and debris, protecting your mouth from issues like tooth decay, gingivitis, bad breath, and more.
Get a professional whitening treatment.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures performed at TruBlu Dentistry, and it is perfect for giving a boost to your smile this summer. This pain-free treatment will remove years of tough stains in just one sitting, making your smile up to eight shades whiter! So if you’d like to remove stains from smoking, coffee, aging, and more this summer, this may be the perfect treatment for you.
Consider other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
If you have a few changes you wish you could make to your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be the answer. We can remedy a wide array of oral health issues— from broken teeth, to gaps, to severe discoloration, or an uneven bite. TruBlu Dentistry offers a number of cosmetic procedures, including porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges, dental implants, and more. Simply schedule a consultation to see which treatment would work best for your particular circumstances.
Check in on your dental hygiene routine.
It is never a bad idea to reevaluate your oral hygiene practices to ensure you stay in the best possible health. First, it is important that you brush at least twice a day, but it is also beneficial to brush after every meal when possible. You should also make sure you’re flossing every night—seriously! Flossing is important for preventing tooth decay and gum disease, and can even help improve the appearance of your smile. Finally, you can also add in a mouthwash to your nightly routine to help eliminate any bacteria that you may have missed. With a solid oral healthcare regimen, you can enjoy a healthy smile that looks great!
Schedule a dental check-up at TruBlu Dentistry.
It comes highly recommended by the American Dental Association that you visit your dentist for a routine check-up every six months, and there’s no better time than the summer to do so! We’ll perform a thorough professional cleaning, examine your teeth and gums for illness and decay, and perform any necessary restorative treatments. This way, you can ensure you have a healthy, beautiful smile before heading off on any summer vacations.
