8 tips to help enhance your smile in 2018:
- Daily routine is important
We all get busy, but correct daily brushing and flossing is a must to include in your daily routine. Brushing twice-a-day and flossing daily keeps harmful bacteria and plaque at bay, freshens your breath, and brightens your smile — which is typically the first thing people notice about you.
- Visit your dentist regularly
Making a regular trip to your dentist can reveal a number of oral disease issues early and help combat oral concerns before they become a problem. We use the latest systems to assess your risk of dental decay, gum disease and mouth cancer to decide how frequently you need to attend. This not only ensures the best management of your oral health but can reduce the number of visits you need to make.
Be sure to make the trip regularly and allow the professionals, including our hygienists and oral health therapists, to effectively monitor the condition of your teeth and gums.
- Choose water
Drinking plenty of water does more than keeping your body amply hydrated. It also washes away food particles and bacteria that are responsible for tooth erosion and cavities. Swap acidic or sugary beverages (e.g., sports drinks, fizzy drinks, fruit juice) with water to minimise the amount of acids and sugar your teeth encounter. Water containing fluoride is ideal for optimal oral health.

- Schedule a consultation for a smile make over
One of the first things you can do to kick start your year is schedule a consultation with a dentist to discuss your smile makeover options. During your consultation, a dentist at Boulton Dental will sit down and listen to your concerns and review your unique requirements. Based on your concerns, our dentist will design a customised treatment plan for your 2018 smile makeover. Each smile makeover is uniquely tailored to you.
Your dentist will outline the treatment timeline and discuss all details with you during your consultation including the costs so that you know exactly what to expect, with no hidden surprises.
- Brighten and whiten your smile
For dull-looking teeth or mild to moderate extrinsic stains, professional teeth whitening can provide better results than over-the-counter products. We offer premium take-home treatments that are the safest and most reliable method to whiten your teeth, find out more information here.
- Get more permanency with veneers
When stains are more severe or even permanent, or you have numerous cosmetic imperfections, you may benefit from veneers. These thin, customised shells are bonded to the tooth’s front surface and can conceal cracks, chips, gaps, stains, and uneven teeth.
The good thing about veneers is that you won’t lose as much of your original tooth (only around 3% or so) compared with a crown. Plus, veneers don’t stain like enamel.
Unlike many other dentists, Boulton Dental also offer composite veneers which involves artistic skill as we shape them onto and around your tooth to make them shiny and new again. We see referrals from orthodontists and other specialists for this treatment.
- Fix a lost tooth with dental implants
If you’ve lost a tooth or the only option was extraction, then dental implants may be an ideal option for you. Dental implants are highly appealing as they are the closest thing to having a natural tooth.
There are two components to an implant: a titanium core and a porcelain crown. The titanium is buried in your mouth and left undisturbed for some time to allow the bone to grow around it. It is then uncovered and attached to your tooth.
