When it comes to our teeth we tend to think we’re stuck with what we’ve got. But just as we take care of our skin and our hair, we can also take measures to ensure a bright, white smile. We consulted the experts at Seapoint Dental Clinic to get the low-down on our delph.

Firstly, we thought there were only certain foods and activities, such as coffee, red wine and cigarettes, that were to be avoided if you wanted to keep your teeth pearly white, but that’s not the case. As for the absolute no-no’s?

“Unfortunately, all foods can stain our teeth to a degree. There’s no getting away from the fact. Smoking however, will considerably increase the amount of staining. Young people have younger looking teeth and older people will have older looking teeth and this is due to staining and wear. Tooth whitening is?a great solution for lots of?people, as it is a cost-effective and completely safe procedure when supervised by a cosmetic dentist.”

When it comes to the age-old question of?how often we should be brushing and flossing our teeth? Once again, the idea?of ‘first thing in the morning and last thing at night’ can certianly be improved upon. If you want your teeth in the best condition possible, Seapoint Clinic remind us that we ought to get brushing several times a day, rather than poorly after every meal or snack. Investing in a travel pack toothbrush kit might be a wise idea.

To bring your teeth up to celebrity standard, “the best method is to combine two techniques together. In the dental surgery we perform a “deep” whitening treatment and then we continue whitening at home to give more of a white “sheen” to the teeth. When put together, they can be much more effective for great results. We are happy to have consultations with anyone interested where we can talk them through our different offerings at the clinic, and the best option for them. All of our dentists and dental experts understand that many clients have concerns about visiting a dentist and will put their minds at ease”

Should you go down the cosmetic procedure route, Seapoint has?just launched an incredible innovation in modern dentistry. The Seapoint Smile Design is an exciting new technology which allows patients to co-design their brand new smile and visualise what their new smile will look like before embarking on any dental work.
