Most people think that it’s the dentist’s job to take

care of people’s teeth. It’s quite true but the fact

is, it’s the responsibility of every individual to

take care of his teeth first before going to the

dentist.


Simple personal dental care such as brushing and

flossing are enough to maintain the hygiene of the

mouth and teeth. Dentists are only for treating and

curing abnormalities and diseases of the mouth, as

well as for giving regular oral prophylaxis at least

twice a year.


If you would just depend on your dentist for the

hygiene of your mouth, you would surely be spending a

lot of money. As they say, prevention is better than

cure that’s why you should be responsible enough to

prevent cavities and other teeth and mouth-related

diseases from existing in your mouth.


Smile Like A Movie Star A lot of people dream of

having Julia Roberts’ million dollar smile. It’s not

actually difficult to achieve that kind of smile. As

long as you maintain proper personal hygiene and

regularly visit your dentist, it won’t be long before

you can achieve your very own movie star-like smile.


However, if you are not blessed with straight and

perfectly shaped teeth, do not lose hope! You can

still achieve your very own million dollar smile –

that is, if you can afford to spend some money to

“repair” your teeth.


Most movie stars who seem to have brilliant pearly

whites didn’t actually have those set of teeth

naturally. About 80% of the celebrities in the movie

industries have undergone teeth enhancing or teeth

restructuring just so they could flash their perfect

smiles on screen.


Although having one’s teeth look exactly like those

seen on TV can be a little bit expensive, if you can

afford it, then go ahead.


However, these kind of processes and procedures still

require healthy teeth as a base or foundation. Dentist

wouldn’t really go ahead with the procedure if they

see that the original teeth are brittle or damaged.


Before enhancing one’s teeth and making it look like a

movie star’s, dentists would still go back to the

basics and repair the damaged or decayed set of the

original teeth.


A Fence For Your Teeth Kids and teenagers are usually

the ones who are commonly seen with braces but there

are also a great number of adults who can be seen

wearing braces.


Although wearing braces can be quite awkward and can

make one feel as if his or her teeth has a fence

around it, braces are actually very effective in

aligning crooked teeth. People who have crooked teeth

can still achieve their million dollar smile by having

their teeth put in braces.


The duration of the braces in one’s teeth greatly

depends on the severity of the crookedness of the

teeth. When the braces are already taken off from the

mouth, retainers have to be worn in replacement of the

braces. Retainers need to be worn to reinforce the

alignment of the teeth.


To know more about personal dental care and other

dental services that may be useful to you, a visit to

your local dentist may just be what you need.

Investing in your teeth is actually something that

would boost your self-esteem and may even land you

your dream job.
