Smile your way to Glory

Smile your way to glory!

Improving a smile:

With selfies and instant photo-sharing becoming a craze, a camera-ready smile is a great achievement. You need not be a celebrity to know how to flash a glowing smile. There is no doubt that a little more attention to your smile and oral hygiene can pay-off.

If you diligently follow these steps, you will get a camera-ready face, which in turn will help you acquire fascinating photos that are shared with your friends.

Bad Breath

The culprit behind bad breath are:

  1. Poor oral health habits
  2. Infections of the tooth or nose.
  3. Gum diseases
  4. Smoking
  5. Dry-mouth

The best ways to combat bad breath are staying hydrated and flossing and brushing your teeth twice a day. Do not forget to clean your tongue, too! If you wear dentures or oral appliances, clean them daily. If you have dry mouth, use an alcohol-free mouthwash or artificial saliva spray/gel.

If your breath suddenly produces an unpleasant or unusual odor, it may be the sign of an underlying disorder like diabetes or a bowel obstruction. If this occurs, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Healthy Gums

For getting a camera-ready smile, you some-times require a little ‘behind-the-scenes’ preparation. Proper brushing and flossing will help you keep the gums and teeth healthy.

Periodontal or gum disease and the infection of the tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth may hinder you from getting a camera-friendly smile.

Gum disease is often painless, but it will make the gums inflamed and irritated, leading to gingival recession. In fact, gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.

But here is the good news: gum disease is almost always preventable. Regular check-ups combined with a good oral hygiene routine will help keep plaque at bay.

Tooth Whitening

If your teeth have become yellow with age, try a whitening product or visit your dentist.

Many over-the-counter (OTC) toothpastes, mouth rinses and chewing gums have a whitening effect. You can also speak to our dentist in lalbaug about suitable whitening toothpastes or in-office treatments.

Proper Dental Hygiene

You may not get a perfect smile overnight. The easiest thing to get a beautiful smile is by maintaining proper dental hygiene.

You may be interested in trying whitening toothpastes. Whitening toothpastes that contain mild abrasives can be helpful in removing stains. However, whitening toothpastes cannot change the colour of your teeth because they can remove only the stains which are present on the tooth surfaces.


Bleaching Agents

Dentin is the calcified tissue that forms the bulk of the tooth under the enamel. The thickness of the enamel layer changes throughout our lives and gets thinner as we age. The thinner the enamel is, the more yellowish your teeth will appear to be, as the dentin layer dominates the final shade.

If your dentin has a yellowish tint, you may use hydrogen peroxide, a natural bleaching agent which will help whiten the teeth.

Some bleaching agents available over-the-counter are ‘paint-on’ teeth whiteners or whitening strips. They are relatively cheap and effective. Make sure to use a whitening agent that contains at least 6% bleaching agents.

The use of OTC medicines may not be effective if you have:

  • Isolated stains, such as a single discoloured tooth
  • Dark stains
  • Crowns
  • Dental implants or other restorations

At O Dental Clinic, we can help you. Being a qualified dentist in Lalbaug, we can prescribe a bleaching agent for home use, or we can bleach your teeth in the office. The procedure typically involves applying a bleaching agent onto your teeth and using a special light or laser to enhance the effect of the whitening agent.

Long-term use of bleaches or abrasive toothpastes can increase sensitivity or gum irritation. If your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold, you should avoid using whitening agents. You should consult Our dentist in lalbaug to discuss your options.


Teeth straightening

Straightening of crooked teeth can also have an effect on your smile. Clear Aligners are an orthodontic option that will help straighten your teeth efficiently.

If you have bite problems or more complex orthodontic issues, you may need traditional braces. Brackets made of tooth-coloured ceramic or polycarbonate are less noticeable than stainless steel brackets.

Fixing imperfections

A missing, chipped or stained tooth can be replaced with a crown or dental implant. Porcelain veneers are pricey, but they can do your smile makeover with a few dental visits.

Speak to your Dentist

If your interested in improving your smile, speak to your dentist in lalbaug at O Dental Clinic. They will recommend an ideal treatment option that will help make your teeth and smile more beautiful.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening (termed tooth bleaching when utilizing bleach), is either restoration of natural tooth shade or whitening beyond natural tooth shade, depending on the definition used. Certain foods and beverages such as tea, coffee, wine, and even blended green juices can cause tooth discoloration. Cutting them out of your diet—or limiting them—will help your teeth stay white post-procedure.
