How to achieve the perfect smile
Smile,” says the publicity. “Smile,” advise friends, co-workers, the boss. The mirror in the morning also seems to ask you to smile but what happens when smiling teeth appear stained, chipped or mounted on each other?
A beautiful smile improves the appearance and therefore facilitates the opportunity to demonstrate what it is worth. The smile will not get the job, but it will improve the first impression in the interview; it might not win love but he will get a date; It will not close a deal but it can make the customer listen.
What is a beautiful smile?
Not all cultures define what a beautiful smile is like, some may even be in direct oppo-sition to Western aesthetic preferences. In general, a good smile is a combination of health and aesthetics. Clear teeth, without spots and aligned, healthy gums, and an adequate proportion between the teeth and gums.
How can you achieve a beautiful smile?
There are very fortunate people who really do not need any special treatment other than good dental hygiene and regular cleanings to maintain what nature has given them. The dental cleanings must be done in the dental clinic at least once a year, depending on the amount of tartar that each patient generates.
With age, and according to habits, for example, if you consume a lot of coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco, you might need teeth whitening to remove the stains and lighten the colour of the teeth. It is very important to know that tooth whitening should always be controlled by a specialist so as not to damage the enamel of the teeth or gums.
If the teeth are badly placed, for example, if they present dental crowding, you should resort to orthodontic treat-ment. Today there are orthodontic treatments that not only leave an aesthetic and functional smile, but you will hardly notice that you are wearing them during the process.
Dr. Sonsoles Pérez Tamajón, specialist in ortho-dontics, has been working in this field for more than 20 years and was the first to use the Geniova orthodontic invisible system in Tenerife, which has revolutionised the market in recent years.
Dental veneers are another way to make the smile look spectacular. The veneers are thin sheets of ceramic or composite that “stick” to the teeth and correct small defects in their shape or position. The veneers also allow to choose more freely the tone of white that is desired.
Sometimes a combination of two or more of these techniques will be needed to achieve that special and personal smile desired. The dental clinics with trajectory and prestige, will study each case individually. For exam-ple, in Tenerife, Artedental’s team of specialists in aes-thetics and orthodontics addresses all the aspects that must be corrected in order to achieve it.
