Get your oral health on track....

The New Year is upon us, so now is the time to shed the old rubbish habits of 2017 and move on to a bigger, better year ahead. Here at your Egham dentist we aren't about to start advising you on gym routines and new careers, but we can certainly encourage you to look into some new dental goals in this year to come. After all, your smile is so important, helping you express yourself, talk, and look lovely, it is worth putting the effort in to make it as healthy and happy as possible. Here are your Egham dentists top 5 amazing dental goals for 2018: 1. Quit Smoking It is one of the hardest things to do but your entire health will benefit from it. Oral health is affected so badly by it, as it causes oral cancer, increases your risk of gum disease, makes your breath smell, decreases your ability to taste, and has a negative effect on how your teeth look. Check out the NHS quit smoking services for more information on quitting. 2. Brush Twice A Day For Two Minutes It might sound simple but there are still lots of people who don't keep basic oral hygiene habits going. Brushing for twice a day for two minutes is the most basic care you can give your teeth, and it really does count. 3. Look Into Cosmetic Dentistry

Remember These 5 Things…

Your smile or rather, your teeth and gums, help you express yourself, talk, eat and maintain your facial structure. To support this, an electric toothbrush is a great gift because it keeps on helping you all year long to maintain your smile so that is looks beautiful and feels healthy every day. So if you have asked (or plan to ask) for an electric toothbrush, first off, here is a high five from your Egham dentist for asking for such a useful gift! In today's blog we're going to help you understand the 5 key things to consider about electric toothbrushes so you're completely in the know about the best one to ask for: There Are Lots Of Different Types So If In Doubt, Go Mid-Range. 1. There are several different types of electric toothbrushes. The main types are:
  • Rotating
  • Sonic
  • Pulsating
  • Oscillating
  • Counter-rotating
  • Dual Head
Although it is personal preference as to which type of toothbrush you would prefer, most people opt for oscillating types which spin around the tooth in different directions. This type of toothbrush will do a good job at cleaning the teeth if used correctly, and you can get these them at a good price. 2. The Battery Matters

What are your options at Crown House Dental in Egham?

Are you feeling really unsure what to ask Santa for this Christmas? Is this because you have an idea of something really special you would love, but you don't really know how to get it? If what you really want this Christmas is the smile of your dreams, maybe it is time to book a consultation with your Egham dentist? There are many modern treatments available to help resolve a wide range of cosmetic smile issues, ranging all the way from ridding you of dark tooth staining, to completely transforming the shape and appearance of your smile! Teeth Whitening Teeth whitening is probably the most well known cosmetic dentistry procedure because so many celebrities have it done regularly, and promote the treatment as part of their everyday beauty regimen. It is a very cost effective way to rejuvenate the look of the teeth, particularly where the staining or yellowing is quite pronounced. Veneers And Bonding Veneers are a more permanent solution where teeth are very badly discoloured, chipped or cracked. They can also be used to mask minor alignment issues. Cosmetic bonding can be used to reshape teeth but it is less of a permanent solution than veneers and may need replacing reasonably frequently in comparison. Porcelain veneers in particular, can produce a stunning new smile and are designed to last a long-time. Adult Teeth Straightening

Accentuate your smile with these ideas from your Egham dentist.

At Christmas time you are likely to chat to lots of people, attend lots of parties and eat lots of food. Plenty of selfies are taken and lots of smiles are needed too! All of those activities depend on a fresh, beautiful smile. Your Egham dentist wants to help you perfect your pout this Christmas so that every festive chat, jingle ball and Santa selfie is absolutely beautiful. Here are our ten tips for a perfect pout this Christmas: Exfoliate Those Lips Your lips dry out with the cold weather and indoor heating, so they will shed more skin than usual. They will also dry up and crack easily, causing injuries that seem to take the rest of the season to heal. Exfoliate them using a soft old toothbrush and some water, moving in gentle circles to get rid of the dead skin. Moisturise Your Lips Once you have exfoliated your lips, the dry skin will come again if you don't keep them moisturised. Use a moisturiser that penetrates the top surface so you get beautifully soft lips all Christmas. Play With Bold Lipstick Colours Sometimes the perfect party outfit doesn't look good no matter how you put it together. Maybe it is missing a pop of colour? Experiment with bright purples, pinks and reds to add some jingle jangle to your Christmas party outfit. Use A Lipstick Base Your lips will look fuller and plumper if you first use a base, like a circulation boosting lip balm before applying your lipstick. Use A Primer
