Don’t Hide Your Smile! Solutions for Common Smile Issues

By: Dr. Samantha Rawdin

Did you know that National Smile Power Day is celebrated on June 15th every year? The day is a celebration of the power of smiling, which can improve mood, boost confidence, and even have health benefits. Smiling triggers the release of chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins, which can act as mild pain relievers or antidepressants. Smiling can also reduce stress and lower blood pressure.

If there’s something holding you back from flashing a big grin, read below for some ways that will be sure to boost your smile confidence:

Yellow or Discolored Teeth

This is a common concern from our patients– over time teeth can start to pick up stains and become darker. There are a few ways to combat this. First and foremost– a teeth cleaning! This is a simple way to both remove the superficial stains from your teeth AND improve your oral health in one shot. For stubborn stains, we can use a ProphyJet, which is basically a gentle power washing for your teeth. Once the surfaces of the teeth are clean, a professional whitening treatment– either at home or in-office–  can go a long way to brighten up a smile. 

Uneven, Misaligned Teeth

For many of our patients, a clear aligner system like Invisalign is an easy way to straighten your teeth to give your smile an even, harmonious appearance. Aligning the teeth also can have long term benefits for your bite and make for easier oral hygiene! 

Broken, Short or Misshapen Teeth

When looking to improve the appearance of the teeth, dental restorations like bonding or veneers can often be great options for patients. Depending on the desired outcome, a patient may be a better candidate for one treatment over the other. Either way, the result is a natural, beautiful smile that’s sure to light up any room.
