A Picture Perfect Smile

“One…two…three…smile!”

Pictures are a part of life—especially in today’s “selfie” society. And let’s face it, it looks like the “selfie” is here to stay. While many people love taking photos with family members or friends, some tend to shy away from the camera.

A common culprit? An unsatisfactory smile.

Whether you’re looking to improve your smile for a big event like a wedding or just because, our practice is happy to help you achieve your goals. Here are a few options for achieving your picture perfect smile without much hassle.

Brighten Your Teeth

Whitening your teeth can make big improvements in your smile with just one simple practice visit. While whitening strips and pastes can also be purchased at a local supermarket, the best (and safest) results can be achieved with our help. In-chair whitening or take-home kits can brighten your smile several shades very quickly. Ask us which is right for you on your next visit.

Correct a Chip

A chipped tooth can be a reason to hide your teeth from the camera—but it’s easier to fix than you may have thought. With custom porcelain veneers, a chipped tooth can be corrected in just a couple of practice visits. The veneer will be extremely natural looking, function just as well as your real teeth and be colour matched with your smile.

Floss for Gum Health

Regular flossing is a must to keep your gums healthy and pink. Many people forget that gums need just as much attention as your teeth. When they’re ignored, gums can recede which may overexpose the tooth root and potentially cause it to come loose or fall out. For healthy gums, aim to floss every day.

Wondering how else you can improve your smile? Remember to keep up your regularly scheduled maintenance visits with our practice. If it’s been a while since we’ve seen you, contact us today to schedule your next appointment.
