Achieving a great smile
Everyone desires the perfect smile however few know how to achieve and preserve it
 It’s true that a bright smile does wonders for our appearance and is synonymous with good health, vitality and success. But do you take proper care of your teeth? Here are some answers to everyday questions about oral hygiene at home.

Dental floss is not to blame for bleeding of the gums and when you see blood while flossing you should suspect gingivitis and therefore must brush more often. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums which can be the result of infrequent, aggressive or hasty brushing of the teeth. An over-the-counter mouthwash may also be useful in combating the condition. However, if bleeding persists you would be advised to visit an oral-hygienist or your dentist.
  • Don’t brush your teeth too hard because this could lead to the reduction of gums and
    the exposing of the enamel.
  • Although refreshments such as Coca Cola light don’t contain sugar they still consist of acids
    that actually weaken the enamel of the teeth.
  • Whitening methods don’t last long.
  • Genetic predisposition determines a beautiful smile but even if you are lucky enough to have good teeth, don’t neglect taking good care of them.
