Merry Christmas! Smiles make great presents

In a world drowning in stuff, more and more people are choosing to give each other experiences and helpful treatments instead of another iPhone or tablet. If you are thinking about what you can get for your special people, why not think about doing something to enhance one of their most important natural communication tools, their smile?

Merry Christmas in StevenageSmiles say more

A smile is what people particularly notice when they meet you. If it’s for the first time, a great smile can colour their whole relationship with you. So, if it’s a working relationship, or some other kind of important interaction, being able to smile a great smile can be crucial. Even if it’s just another day-to-day interaction with people you already know, whether or not it starts with a great smile can set the tone for the day. Being able to see each other’s smiles is why people love using video calls.

Ways to upgrade a smile

Modern dentistry has all sorts of ways to enhance teeth and smiles, and there is bound to be one that is just right for your special person.

Veneers

Lots of people have one or 2 teeth that let down the rest of their smile. Maybe it’s a discolouration, or a crack, a chip or a slight twist or lean. Veneers are tiny porcelain sheaths that we cement onto the front of the offending tooth to cover over any imperfections. It only takes 2 sessions to fit veneers and they can last for at least 10 years if they are well taken care of. If you know your sweetie agonises over one or 2 teeth, why not offer them veneers this year. They are far more beneficial than nail extensions.

Teeth whitening

One way to transform a smile is to have the teeth whitened. Whitening removes surface stains left by coloured food and drinks such as tea, coffee and berries. A whiter smile can boost confidence in just one hour in the dentist’s chair at Smilecraft in Stevenage. Or you can buy your favourite person a bespoke DIY kit that they can use again and again at home.

Looking after your teeth over Christmas

We need to look after our teeth all year and especially over Christmas. After all, who wants to be stuck in the dentist’s practice over Christmas? Keeping our teeth happy and healthy is the best way to avoid any unwanted surprises this Christmas.

Visiting your dentist regularly and keeping on top of your oral hygiene is the way to keep a high standard of oral hygiene.

Merry ChristmasHere at Smilecraft, we also offer a wide range of treatments to keep your teeth looking beautiful, as well as feeling great. The demand for treatments like teeth whitening and cosmetic braces has grown in recent years and so has the number of options available to patients.

Keeping your teeth clean

The most important part of your oral hygiene routine is brushing. Your dentist usually advises to brush at least twice a day. This number can be higher, depending on your habits, dental history and if you wear braces or not.

Although brushing is the most important part of your oral hygiene routine, flossing at least once a day is also important. Many dentists will also recommend using an anti-bacterial mouthwash to keep the nasty bacteria away from your teeth.

Many people also forget to brush and clean their tongue. This is an important part of maintaining a high standard of oral hygiene.

Why is visiting the dentist so important?

Having a friendly dentist that you can visit regularly is important because a dentist can evaluate your overall oral health and spot any problems before they turn into an issue.

During a regular check-up at Smilecraft, your dentist will check for any signs of tooth decay that may need treatment. This treatment could come in the form of a filling or maybe root canal therapy for more serious cases.

At Smilecraft we can treat most dental issues and make your teeth live their full potential. If it’s getting that extra shine or straightening your teeth to perfection you want, we have the treatment for you.

If you have any questions about any treatments, come in for a visit at Smilecraft, and from all of the team here in Stevenage: Merry Christmas.
