The way your smile looks can greatly affect how you feel about yourself and your level of self-confidence. According to researchers, having white, straight teeth may also affect how others see you. Those with white teeth often appear to be smarter and more attractive than those with discolored, crooked teeth. This illustrates the fact that putting some time and effort into your smile may pay off quickly.

Improve Your Smile Quickly

While long-term changes to your smile may involve more in-depth treatment from a cosmetic dentist in Thousand Oaks, CA, there are easy ways you can change the way you look and increase confidence in your smile from home.
• Keep your gums healthy with proper brushing and flossing every day. Brush twice a day and floss at least once, preferably at night.

• Whiten teeth with specialized mouth rinses, gums and toothpastes recommended by Dr. Subka.

• Fight bad breath and keep your mouth minty fresh with proper oral hygiene.

Caring for your teeth properly is an essential part of improving your smile. Exams should be scheduled every six months for a deep cleaning by a professional. Cavities and other problems must be treated quickly to avoid serious problems down the road, and even rinsing with water after every meal goes a long way toward protecting your teeth.

If you have crooked teeth, you may be a candidate for several teeth straightening procedures performed in office. We also offer in-office bleaching to restore the white, natural look of your teeth. Small imperfections like stained or chipped teeth can be treated fairly easily, and may make a huge difference in how you feel about your smile.
