Secrets to Always Having a Camera-Ready Smile

We live in a day and age where we are all on camera, all the time. And since we all have our own high definition cameras in our pockets, every single person should know how to always have a camera-ready smile. What a lot of people do not know, is that it involves a lot of prior consideration and a commitment to practice.

First, there are things you should consider before you head out to a potential picture-taking event. Practicing your go-to smile may feel awkward at first, but it will help you out in the long run. Get a feel for the perfect smile and when you need it, your face will use muscle memory to pull it off. Also remember to check your teeth and gums before you head out. Sometimes old particles of food can float around and end up in the worst of places. And if you are out eating with friends or family, either carry a travel-sized brush with you to clean up afterwards, or travel flossers.

Also pay attention to your posture and clothing when you're in front of the camera. Many ladies these days have an unfortunate double chin when they stand in a certain manner. Put thought into how you are sitting and standing to help remove that aspect of yourself. Further, before you head out, consider how your lipstick and clothes will look in comparison to your teeth. Will a white blouse make your teeth more yellow? (Orange-based lipstick definitely will!) Give our office a call to find out more about how we can help you get a camera-ready smile.

Is Your Filling Supposed to Last Forever?
Fillings can be made of very different materials. In the past, they have been made of metals, while now they are usually made of a resin-type material that is tooth colored. And if you think about how your fillings work, they undergo a lot of abuse and pressure just from natural wear and tear. The short version of the answer to this question is no, they are not meant to last forever. In fact, they generally only last about six to eight years, depending on their treatment and material. If you're coming up on your six year filling anniversary or are feeling anything different around them, give our office a call today.

Chronic Health Issues Can Impact Your Oral Health

If you have chronic health issues, you should know that those issues are also affecting your teeth and health. Diseases like diabetes, cancer, bulimia and anorexia, osteoporosis, or cardiovascular problems can greatly degrade your oral health. This is because your dental condition is directly related to your bodily health. For example, if you suffer from bulimia, frequent vomiting will lead to stomach acid touching your teeth and destroying the enamel, which causes more chances for infections and decay in the form of cavities. Or, if you suffer from osteoporosis, the same brittleness that infects your bones, also affects your teeth too. To find out how we can help, give us a call today!
