Your smile is one of the most important things about you. You need to be able to smile as much as possible. Doing so can help you feel better, and it can also bring many other benefits. The problem is that some people feel self-conscious about smiling because of the appearance of their teeth. A less than sparkling appearance can make smiling something that is not easy to do for some.

If this applies to you, you will be interested to know that there are steps you can take to improve your smile. One of these steps is to think about a mini smile makeover. It’s fairly simple to have a makeover completed, and you can make a start today. So, what is a mini smile makeover, and how can you benefit from one?

Visiting the hygienist

Something as simple as visiting the dental hygienist can make a big difference to your smile. The hygienist will examine your mouth and advise you about your dental health. They will make sure that your teeth and gums are clean, and they will provide you with advice about how to keep them this way.

This advice is important and it can help your smile makeover become more permanent. Visits to the hygienist do not take very long. You will normally spend around thirty minutes with the hygienist and the visit will be highly productive. If you visit the hygienist regularly, and follow their advice, your smile should remain bright.

Having stains removed from teeth

There are various foods and drinks that can cause your teeth to become stained. This can obviously have a detrimental effect on your smile, which is why the removal of stains can be an important part of any mini smile makeover. If your teeth have become stained, and brushing is not helping to get rid of the stains, you can get professional help with stain removal.

Dentists and hygienists use processes such as AirFlow® technology to clean stains from teeth effectively and quickly. Once your teeth are free from stains, you can help keep them clean by making changes such as cutting down on the amount of tea and coffee you drink and reducing the number of cigarettes that you smoke. You can also combine having stains removed from your teeth with having them whitened, if you think this is necessary in order to make significant improvements to your smile.

Opting for teeth whitening

It’s natural for your teeth to become discoloured as you get older. This discolouration can make you feel self-conscious. One of the easiest ways to get rid of the problem is to undergo teeth whitening. There are several different types of teeth whitening available.

You can choose to use whitening trays which are provided by dental professionals for you to use at home. These trays are customised to fit in your mouth. You will usually need to wear them for eight consecutive days, for three hours at a time. If you do as instructed, you can get good results in the space of two weeks.

You can also choose to have whitening carried out at the dental surgery. This type of whitening normally takes around 1-2 hours and you can start to see the results immediately. Whichever type of teeth whitening you choose, it can play an important role in a mini smile makeover.

Deciding which options are best for you

You can see how a mini smile makeover can be beneficial. It can help to make you feel better about yourself, and more confident, simply by making your smile brighter. The first step towards having a mini smile makeover completed is to decide which potential aspects of the makeover are the best option for you. In order to do this, you need to contact a dental care professional and speak to them about your needs. They will tell you what options are available to you.
