Smile Makeover

September 2017

Do you want to improve your smile? Modern dentistry can work wonders. For example, now you can close spaces between teeth and fix crooked or chipped teeth to provide a nicer, less self-conscious smile. You can whiten teeth for a more youthful and healthy look. Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t only make you look better, it makes you feel better.

We offer a full range of aesthetic dental treatment, building confidence ‘one smile at a time’ 

Smile Design is one of the many services at the Harrow Dental Centre. Smile Design is a highly technical process requiring great skill and experience to achieve a natural result.Orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth may be all that is required. It may be necessary to refer you to a specialist orthodontist to straighten your teeth in combination with tooth whitening ,dental bonding ,crowns or veneers .

It takes artistic ability and extensive knowledge to perform an impeccable smile design. Techniques require precise measurements based upon mouth shape, gum lines, lips, and natural shape of the teeth. That’s why we devote time to precisely planning a Smile Design before we begin the actual procedure. It is vital that we will help you to attain excellent oral hygiene and dental health before any cosmetic or aesthetic dental care is commenced.

Oral hygiene is the foundation of all good dental care. Any treatment to restore your teeth or to rejuvenate your smile will fail if the treatment is not supported by excellent oral hygiene

During a patient’s initial cosmetic consultation, we take several photographs and create models of teeth to help us plan the treatment with you, to suit your unique style and character.

Another indication of age is the dark, negative space seen in the back corners of the mouth when a person smiles. To correct this, we may widen the width of the back teeth with veneers or crowns. This broadens the smile eliminating the dark corners.

Finally, teeth stain with age, nature plays a trick on us (some of us!) as we get older our teeth get darker and our hair gets lighter or whiter.An ‘aged’ smile can add years to ones face. Tooth whitening (bleaching ) may be a carefully considered part of the treatment plan. 

The colour of our often teeth corresponds with the age of the patient – the younger the whiter. Skin tones can also influence the shade selection of the veneers. Thus, by placing a natural looking veneer over discoloured teeth the face is brightened creating a more youthful appearance. Tooth whitening is usually a recommended part of  a smile makeover

Why should youth be wasted on the young?

A Gift You Can Give All Year Long

Holday Smile

January 2016

For most of us, gift-giving is just a holiday thing. Every year, we spend the time before Christmas looking for the perfect gift for those who are most special to us. But did you know there’s a very simple gift you can give your loved ones, and even strangers, any time you want? It’s your smile!

Believe it or not, smiling can have a remarkable impact on you and those around you.  According to scientific studies, it can improve one’s mood and even relieve stress.

Here’s how it works. When you smile, particular muscles in your face are stimulated. These muscles will, in turn, stimulate the part of the brain responsible for creating warm and pleasant feelings. Meanwhile, for those around you, a smile is simply hard to resist. Smiling at someone who’s having a hard day may inspire them to smile back, triggering those same pleasant feelings in them. That’s how smiling can easily become a gift you give someone else.

Has the  holiday season starting to worn you down? Practice your smiling. You may find that you start feeling better in no time. And why not make a New Year’s resolution to smile more throughout 2016. Just like regular brushing and flossing and twice-yearly checkups, committing to smiling throughout the year will help you enjoy better overall wellbeing and confidence.

Five Reasons Why It’s Worthwhile to Smile

 

smilesNineteenth century novelist George Eliot once said, “Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles.”

Yet smiling is more than just a way to convince your mother that you really did enjoy that meatloaf surprise. Even the smallest upward lip curve—whether or not it’s sincerely delivered—has far-reaching emotional and physical benefits.

Here are five advantages of turning that frown upside down:

1. Studies have shown that smiling lowers blood pressure. If you need some instant Zen, then all you have to do is smile. 

2. Smiling is almost a cure for the cold. Scientists have figured out that smiling produces more antibodies and white blood cells, which boosts your immune system. So take your vitamins and grin your way to wellness.

3. Analysis conducted at the University of Illinois suggested that people who are happier (and therefore smile a lot more), add almost a decade to their lifespan. That’s an extra ten years for not using your frowny face!

4. Endorphins (feel-good hormones) and serotonin (natural stress-reducers) are released when you smile. It’s the caffeine-free pick-me-up, and it works without having to double your espresso!

5. At DePauw University in Indiana, researchers determined that people who grin consistently have healthier marriages. It’s hard to fight over who ate the last strawberry when you’re grinning at each other, right?

Smiling costs nothing, requires no special equipment, and is accessible twenty-four-seven. And no one minds if you do it in public. As Les Giblin said, “If you’re not using your smile, you’re like a man with a million dollars in the bank and no chequebook.”

Summertime .. and your smile

 

During the summer, you’re probably going to attend a lot of parties, and with parties come a variety of beverages and snacks. Summertime drinks include soda, sports drinks, white wine, beer, and lemonade, and these drinks are loaded with sugar. A simple tip for counteracting the effects of these beverages, however, is to rinse your mouth with water regularly throughout the party. But don’t brush your teeth too soon after consuming acidic beverages. These drinks can soften enamel, and brushing while the enamel is soft can do more damage. Wait at least an hour before you brush!

Party foods can be dark in color and full of sugar as well. Dark foods contribute to stained teeth, and we all know what happens when you eat too much sugar! Cavities!  But by rinsing your mouth after eating these dark and sugary foods, you can avoid staining and cavities — and a trip to the dentist during your summer for teeth whitening and an examination can give your smile a boost!

It’s pretty simple to keep your smile in shape during these summer months. Brushing, flossing, rinsing after food or drink, and regular trips to the dentist can help keep you looking and feeling your best. Now you just have to figure out how to stay cool.If summer does eventually arrive.
