World Oral Health Day:  Things to be known about the POWER OF A SMILE.

Just take a moment and think about how a simple smile can be one of the most powerful tools at our disposal... and we all have one.

So to help everyone understand the power of a smile these are the favourite facts about smiles:

  • Charles Darwin who was one of the first to really look at the power of a smile. He noted that smiling is truly universal, unlike other physical actions such as body language, or verbal communication, which differs from culture-to-culture, we all understand a smile and the feelings behind it.

  • Smiles are hugely infectious.  So even if we don't feel much happier straight away, by smiling the people around us are more likely to smile, and that can then improve our mood as well.

  • A smile can really have a big effect on our relationships. More than half of the people make a smile one of the first things that people notice about others and one of the most attractive features people can have.

  • A smile can also benefit our professional life too. A smile is seen as friendly and trustworthy; interviewers are likely to find candidates far more appealing if they go for a job interview with smile on their face.

  • It really is easier to smile too. I am sure you would have heard that it takes less muscles to smile than frown, this really is true 43 to frown and only 17 to smile!

       Looking after our smile should be quite simple, if you make sure you follow these three key messages:

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visit a dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
Try to share a smile, not just on World Oral Health Day but every day, and bring a bit of happiness to those around you.World Oral Health Day is celebrated every year on 20 March. It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of oral hygiene to looking after everyone old and young.

Why Are My Teeth Yellow Even Though I Have Good Dental Hygiene?

Having yellow teeth can be embarrassing, but doesn’t necessarily mean that your teeth are unclean or unhealthy. Rather than worrying about your dental cleaning routine, you should instead focus on the products that you eat, drink and smoke. By making some changes to your diet and lifestyle, you can prevent stains from building up on your teeth.

Smoking causes yellow stains

Smoking is bad for your oral health in many ways, including causing gum disease and raising the risk of mouth cancer. The most obvious effect of smoking on your mouth is a gradual yellowing of the teeth. Although whitening treatments can remove or at least reduce these yellow stains, you will need to quit smoking in order to prevent the staining from coming back again after the treatment.

Watch out for red wine, coffee and tea

Do you enjoy a glass of red wine with dinner? Or do you typically follow meals with a steaming cup of black coffee or tea? These everyday habits could be the reason why your teeth are no longer as white as they once were. Tea, coffee and red wine all contain chemicals called tannins, which cause stains to form on the surfaces of teeth.

Is your enamel wearing thin?

Thin enamel is one possible cause of yellow teeth. Certain illnesses and medications can cause enamel to become thinner than it should be. Acids in foods and drinks can also erode enamel, particularly the highly corrosive acids in cola and other soft drinks.

Hygiene might not be the culprit, but it is important

Cleaning and flossing your teeth is not always enough to keep them perfectly white, but you should still be vigilant about dental hygiene. Keeping teeth clean is the best way to prevent bacteria from growing in the mouth and attacking the teeth to cause cavities and decay.

Your dentist can help

We can offer treatments to restore the whiteness of your teeth, as well as giving advice about how to prevent the yellow colour from returning. Whitening treatments are very safe when they are carried out by a qualified cosmetic dentist, and they are suitable for most people. Stop hiding your smile and book an appointment with us to fix the discolouration of your teeth.
