Ever since I was a kid I’ve been really OCD about my teeth; brushing them twice a day (minimum) religiously, despite whatever drunken state I come home in. So I’ve handed the reigns over to Ollie and Darsh today to give us all some tips on how to keep your smile sexy as fuck! – Scarlett xx

When you think of treating yourself, it might not be your teeth that are the first things that spring to mind. Maybe a day at a spa, a shopping trip or a weekend away are more your style. However, treating your smile well is one of the best ways to boost your self-confidence and it’s an investment that will pay off for years to come.

Let’s take a look at some of the best ways you can invest in your dental health and keep your smile looking great.

Investing starts at home

If you want to keep your teeth pearly white for longer then you need to get your daily oral hygiene routine up to scratch. Gone are the days of a cursory, 30 second brush of your teeth before you crash into bed. It should take minutes to brush your teeth, not seconds and you need to be doing it at least twice a day.

And while we’re at it, learn to love flossing! Nothing promotes gum disease like plaque between the teeth. And nothing is better at removing built-up plaque than flossing. Make sure flossing doesn’t fall to the bottom of your to-do list.

Give your lifestyle a spring clean

There’s no two ways about it, sugar is your smile’s arch nemesis. Turning into acid in the mouth, sugar attacks the enamel and quickly rots the teeth. To fight tooth decay you need to eliminate as much sugar as you can from your diet. Don’t forget about what you’re drinking too! Juices, squash, fizzy drinks and alcohol are all really high in sugar – perilous for your teeth.

Stop putting off those dentist appointments

You may be one of those people who just dread their visits to the dentist. Or you may just put it off entirely. This is doing the longevity of your smile no favours. Seeing your dentist regularly means that a trained, professional eye can catch potential problems before they arise and turn into something more serious. After all, prevention really is better than cure.

Invest in a treatment that could change your life

If misaligned teeth are something that you struggle with then there are some highly advanced and sophisticated orthodontic treatments available that will quickly and discreetly straighten your teeth. Technologies such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles are the perfect way to correct any dental concerns in a way that won’t interfere with your appearance or your lifestyle.

Whatever way you look at it, your smile is one of the best ways to make a great first impression. Investing in your dental health will not only produce great visual results, but also totally transform your confidence. Invest time, not just money, and your smile will be exceptional for many years to come.

Until next time… x
