If you spend a lot of time talking to people – whether clients, customers, or coworkers – you know just how important it is to make the right impression.
Here are some helpful smile tips that can easily be incorporated into your daily life.
Assemble a Small Smile Care Kit
A surprising number of people keep a small dental hygiene kit with them in their desk, locker, or briefcase. This kit can include items such as:
- A box of dental floss
- A disposable toothbrush
- A small tube of toothpaste
- Dental picks
- A travel sized bottle of mouthwash
- Breath mints or gum
- A small mirror
This gives you everything you need to keep your smile shining bright all day long.
Pay Attention to Food Choices
A big part of maintaining a beautiful smile are the food choices you make every day. Sugary foods and drinks, like soda (even diet), should be avoided. Acidic foods, like citrus, seem healthy but aren’t good for the overall health of your teeth. They can weaken tooth enamel and enable cavity causing bacteria, which can ultimately lead to tooth decay and discoloration.
