Easy Steps to Improve your Smile
First impressions last…The first thing someone will notice is your Smile…
We all crave that wonderful bright white SMILE but how do we go about getting it?…
Here at the Marylebone Implant Centre we have complied our easy steps to help improve your smile so you can make that first impression last a lifetime.
Good Oral Hygiene Regime –
This may seem very logical and extremely simple but ask yourself how often do you do the following?:
Brush your teeth twice daily?
It is essential that you brush your teeth first thing in the morning and last thing at night. If you are using a manual tooth brush maybe treat yourself to an electric toothbrush as it is a well known fact in dentistry that an electric toothbrush can clean your teeth and gums much better than a manual tooth brush due to the oscillating rotation of the electric toothbrush. If you do use a manual toothbrush it is recommended that you change your toothbrush every 3-4 months.
Do you Use floss or tepe (interdental) brushes?
Dental floss and tepe (interdental) brushes are used to get in between your teeth and get to those all essential gums where your toothbrush cannot always get to. What most people do not realise is that we store bacteria in between our gums and it is our gums that we need to ensure are kept clean otherwise plaque can build up and over time this could lead to gum disease. If the spaces in between your teeth are large enough then it is best to use the tepe brushes otherwise if you find they are too tight it is then best to use dental floss. Some people find that they will require a selection of different sizes as everyone’s mouth is different. For the best results you can use dental floss or tepe brushes daily. If you would like any further information on using oral hygiene products or would like some oral hygiene instruction please do not hesitate to contact our hygienist at the Marylebone Implant Centre on 02034342934 or via email at [email protected]
Have regular dental check ups
. At the Marylebone Implant Centre we recommend to all our patients that you have a regular dental routine examination at least once a year so the dentist can thoroughly check your mouth, gum and teeth to ensure that there are no untoward changes to your mouth. At this appointment the dentist will take any necessary dental x-rays.
Have regular hygienist check ups.
Seeing a hygienist regularly (we recommend at least once every six months) to have a thorough cleaning cannot only make your mouth feel very fresh but the hygienist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning and examine your teeth for any signs of oral disease or gingivitis along with giving the patient oral hygiene instruction.
Airflow Teeth Cleaning.
If you are having trouble removing stubborn stains with regular toothpaste and brushing? Why not have an Airflow procedure along with your regular hygiene appointment. Airflow can improve the colour of your teeth by a couple of shades without using any UV lights or chemical gels. It works using three components, Air, Water and Sodium bicarbonate. To get the best results you may require a de-scaling with our professional hygienist first who will then follow using airflow cleaning; you will see the results straight away. Airflow is very good for removing stains from eating and drinking including getting rid of plaque and discoloration from tea, coffee and red wine. Airflow can also remove tobacco stains. For a brighter, fresher smile call us on 02034342934 and ask for details on AIRFLOW.
Some patients will find that they have a good oral hygiene regime but just are not happy with the colour or shape of their teeth (their teeth may be chipped, discoloured or their bite could be misaligned and they have difficulty in chewing) and their lack of Smile can leave them feeling very Self-conscious. If you find yourself to be one of those patients please be assured that we have other dental treatments available which are much less invasive and do not require lots of dental treatment which can correct your smile. These simple dental procedures below can give you back the confidence and smile you have been longing for..

- Lumineers – If you are unhappy with your smile and would like to change the shape and colour of your teeth without invasive dental surgery Lumineers are a great way to improve your smile as they strong and durable and will not discolour. The Marylebone Implant Centre offers our patients a procedure called Digital Smile Design where the patient gets to sit with the consultant in a relaxed environment to discuss and see the final result of how their teeth could look before any treatment has even taken place.
- Porcelain Veneers – Over the years some patients find that their teeth get very worn down, chipped, stained. Porcelain veneers are a rapid, aesthetic, and safe way to correct unattractive front teeth. Porcelain Veneers are a strong, long lasting, stain resistant treatment which takes less time that other corrective treatment options.
- Crowns – Porcelain crowns can be created to look a lot like a natural tooth for those who have a tooth or teeth with extensive fractures, severely filled or decayed. Porcelain crowns are able to provide a durable, strong, and resilient replacement that works well for many years to come as well for patients who are suffering from a damaged tooth. Not only can porcelain crowns be used to help patients who have a missing tooth, or a damaged tooth, they can also be used for patients who are looking to improve the overall appearance of their smile also.
