How much would you give to gain the iconic Hollywood smile? We all dream of a beautiful set of straight pearly whites that elevate our smiles. But, if you don’t have the paychecks of a movie star, it can seem like an impossible dream.
Dental healthcare is not only expensive, but it is also inconvenient in day-to-day routines. Stars can make time during their day-to-day schedules to look after their teeth. But for everyone else, scheduling appointments at the dentist for simple checkups is already tough! Making time before or after work is not easy. So, you might worry that your dream of the perfect smile is unachievable.
So, let’s start with the good news first. Some level of dental care is available to private clients in the comfort of their homes. This has two crucial advantages: Firstly, it makes it a lot more affordable for your budget. Secondly, you don’t have to worry about squeezing an appointment into your busy schedule. However, it doesn’t mean that you can address all dental issues at home. Infections, gum disease, and other pain-related problems need to be treated by a specialist. But a beautiful Hollywood smile is something you can do at home.
Straightening your teeth at home
A lot of adults worry that they are too old to wear braces. In reality, while we are more familiar with wire braced among teenagers, these can also exist among the adult population. It is never too late to straighten your teeth. Yet, wire braces can be expensive, uncomfortable, and plain shameful when you are fully grown-up. Instead, you can order a set of clear braces that are fully tailored to your teeth. Invisible braces can be worn comfortably all day long without being noticed. They work hard to redressed crooked smiles. Depending on your situation, it could take several months to over a year to straighten your teeth. It’s easy, effective, and a lot kinder for your wallet!
Whitening your teeth
Teeth change colors over time. More often than not, the food you eat can cause unpleasant stains. Coffee and tea are the most frequent culprits for dental stains. You can reduce the ability of tea to stain your teeth by adding 2% milk, as a protein in milk prevents stains. Dark fruit juices can also lead to dark pigmentation of the teeth. Cranberry juices and blueberry treats are bad for your teeth, even though they are good for your health. But, you can order a whitening kit at home that will work hard to tackle those stains. Whitening toothpaste is often ineffective against long-established stains.
Remineralizing your enamel
The enamel is the outer layer of your teeth. It is a protective shield that’s wrapped around the soft core of your teeth. Unfortunately, acidic drinks, sugar, and other factors can weaken your enamel. Currently, some laboratories are working on finding the best formula to regrow teeth. But science is there yet. However, you can help remineralize your enamel with products that can solidify the minerals. You can’t fix deep cavities. But you can treat areas where the enamel has lost its shine as well as dark spots (surface cavities).
There’s a lot more you can do for your teeth at home. Are you still dreaming of a Hollywood smile? It’s now an available and affordable option.
