02 Oct Keep Your Smile Looking Beautiful This Party Season!
5 easy-to-follow hints and tips from your Egham dentist
This party season, no doubt you’re hoping to look beautiful in your glitz and glamour, but the one thing that will be standing out on all your selfies, story updates and group photos will be your smile.
When you’re chatting with friends and perhaps even having a a night out with your colleagues, they will notice your smile; so there’s a lot riding on this one aspect of your look this winter.
No no matter which dress you wear, or how you style your hair, your smile will be central to your overall look. So to help ensure your smile is even more dazzling than the Christmas lights this year, try following these 5 tips from your Egham dentist:
1. Exfoliate Old Skin
In winter we shed skin quicker because of the cold air outside, and the central heating inside. This means extra exfoliation for all areas you want to keep soft, including your lips. Dry, craggy skin will not enhance your smile, so make sure you don’t keep your lips out of your winter skincare routine. Gentle, circular brushes with an old toothbrush will do the job nicely.
2. Moisturise Your Lips
Lots of people use lip products that contain petroleum jelly to moisturise their lips in winter. Unfortunately, it just sits on the surface and doesn’t penetrate the deeper skin layers, so the lips never really get moisturised. Instead opt for a lip balm containing coconut oil or shea butter so your lips are truly softened and nourished.
3. Take Care Of Your Teeth
Nobody wears toothache or sore gums well in any season and taking care of your teeth is key to ensuring your smile looks and feels beautiful. Brush twice a day with the right toothbrush and toothpaste (your Egham dentist can advise you on this), attend regular checkups here at Crown House Dental and book in for an urgent appointment if you have any signs of discomfort.
4. Enhance Your Teeth
It may be that your smile is not your favourite asset. Perhaps you have stained teeth from certain lifestyle choices, you have a gummy smile, or maybe even missing teeth from previous neglect of oral hygiene? Whatever your reason for feeling insecure about your smile, Crown House Dental in Egham can help you with various cosmetic and restorative dentistry options such as veneers, teeth whitening and dental implants.
5. Maintain Fresh Breath
Nobody can see your breath, but if they’ve seen your gorgeous smile and approached you to chat, they will soon smell bad breath. Avoid anything with garlic and onion in a day or before your party as they stick around in your stomach for a while and you can still notice it some time after eating. Keep sugar free gum on hand to chew after eating as this will not only freshen your breath, but stimulate saliva which helps keep your teeth healthy too.
