Nine Steps To A More Beautiful Smile

Most patients consider the appearance of their smiles to be necessary to their overall confidence. However, not everyone has a smile that is naturally attractive. Patients might notice staining and discoloration of their teeth over time or might want to speak to a dentist about ways to straighten the teeth, such as ClearCorrect. In Murietta, CA, Dr. Daniel Pulsipher of Springs Dental assists patients in enhancing their teeth and gums for a more attractive look. This may be done with a wide range of cosmetic services.

Steps to a healthier, more attractive smile:

  1. Brush the teeth. It is recommended that everyone brush their teeth after every meal, or at least twice a day to remove sugars and food from the teeth and gums.
  2. Floss daily. At least once a day, floss the teeth to remove food particles that often become trapped between the teeth.
  3. Visit the dentist regularly. Everyone should see the dentist every six months for a cleaning and evaluation. When problems arise, appointments should be made as soon as possible for an examination, diagnosis, and treatment.
  4. Eat a healthy diet. Eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables and without sugary foods and beverages is best for the smile. Enjoying foods high in calcium can also help in strengthening the natural tooth enamel and the jaw’s bone to support a healthy smile.
  5. Avoid tobacco. Smoking and smokeless chewing tobacco should be avoided. These habits can stain the teeth and will also significantly increase a patient’s chance of developing oral cancers.
  6. Consider professional whitening. At Springs Dental, patients who have dull and discolored smiles may want to ask about whitening the teeth with our unique services to achieve results far more noticeable than what can be achieved with over-the-counter whitening products.
  7. Consider orthodontia. Patients with misaligned teeth may want to ask about traditional braces in Murrieta for severe issues. Other options may include clear braces, such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect in our Murrieta, CA area practice.
  8. Consider cosmetic services. Certain imperfections of the smile may be improved with composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers, or clear braces for patients in Murrieta. Pointing out specific concerns one has about their smile with Dr. Daniel Pulsipher is the first step in taking action for aesthetic improvements.
  9. Avoid foods and beverages that stain the teeth. This includes coffees, teas, and red wines, which are commonly known to darken teeth. If you do enjoy these items, be sure to brush your teeth immediately after consumption.

Which cosmetic treatments are right for me?

During a consultation visit with Dr. Daniel Pulsipher of Springs Dental, patients can point out to him the specific areas of the smile that are of concern. Before undergoing cosmetic dentistry, any issues such as periodontal disease or tooth decay need to be addressed first. Then, with information regarding the imperfections in the smile that bother the patient, the Murrieta dentist can make knowledgeable recommendations to the patient regarding their best approach regarding these specific concerns. Many patients may find themselves redesigning their smile with a smile makeover, or full mouth reconstruction, to dramatically change their smile’s appearance and boost self-esteem and confidence.
