As we embark on a new year, it’s the perfect time to set your goals for self-improvement. What better place to start than with your smile? Having good oral health will play a big part in your overall health. But the beauty and function of your smile has a significant part of your self-confidence. Loving how your smile looks gives you the boost you need to smile broadly and greet people with a toothy grin. Today, we’ll explore ways to invest in your smile in the new year. 

  1. Enhance Your Smile’s Beauty

Do you see dental flaws in the mirror? If you want brighter, straighter, or overall more attractive teeth, you’ll want to invest in one of our many cosmetic dentistry options. You can correct dental flaws with veneers or tooth bonding. Or get rid of stains with professional teeth whitening. We also can work with you on making several changes by doing a complete smile makeover. However you envision your smile, we’d love to help you achieve that.

  1. Secure Your Teeth to Implants

Missing teeth can impact both your oral health and bite function. Imagine eating all the foods you’ve been missing! While restorations on their own are suitable for many of our patients, countless love the life-changing benefits of implants. Consider dental implants as a long-term investment in a complete, functional smile. These surgically placed implants fuse with the jawbone, providing stability and a natural look and feel. 

  1. Botox for a Youthful Smile

In addition to cosmetic dentistry, Botox is a fantastic way to enhance your smile. Addressing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth creates a more youthful appearance. Plus, you can easily pursue these FDA-approved injections during your checkup. The results last for months, but the treatment only takes minutes.

  1. Upgrade Your Dental Supplies

Invest in your daily oral care routine by upgrading your dental equipment. Consider investing in a high-quality electric toothbrush, known for its superior plaque removal compared to manual brushes. Ones with a built-in timer can help you stick to your two-minute brushing time. Other supplies you may consider are water flossers and tongue scrapers. Both of those can help keep your smile healthy and clean!

  1. Visit Us for Regular Dental Checkups

Perhaps the most crucial investment in your smile is regular dental checkups. Professional cleanings and exams will help you maintain optimal oral health. We spot any issues in advance so you can expect easier treatments. We recommend visiting us for a checkup every six months. However, each patient is different. So, it may be necessary for you to come more often, depending on your unique oral health needs. 

As you embark on a journey to invest in your smile in the new year, remember that every step contributes to not only the beauty of your grin but also the overall health of your teeth and gums. Remember to protect your investment with regular teeth brushing habits, eating healthy, staying hydrated, and visiting us if you are dealing with any dental pain.
