Your Smile: A Couple Things You Should Only Do If You Want To!

October 18, 2018

It can be very easy to get caught up in the “shoulds” of life. You hear that you should really do something about your smile, so it looks whiter. You hear you should really try out that new toothbrush because it might be better than what you’re using. However, when you think about it, you may wonder: Should you really? Are these things that you actually require or are there advertisements and suggestions out there that you hear about, you’re not really sure where they come from, but somehow they manage to infiltrate your thoughts? Our Lake Orion, MI team reminds you that your one goal is keeping your smile nice and healthy with dental care. As for everything else: It’s usually up to you. Let’s cover some examples.

#1: Receive Cosmetic Care

There may be a part of you that looks at your smile, recognizes it isn’t perfect, but wonders if you should go through with cosmetic dental care or not. On one hand, you know that it’s quite popular to want a beaming smile that looks completely uniform and perfected! However, you really like the unique qualities that makes your smile your own. So, what’s the right answer? Should you come in for cosmetic treatments? Or not? In this case, it is entirely up to you. Remember that cosmetic dentistry is completely elective, which means you may choose it for your smile if you want to. It doesn’t offer you any oral health improvements, so there’s no “need” just “want” behind the decision.

If you do decide that you’re interested in addressing things you aren’t loving about the way your smile looks, don’t forget that our team is here to help with the following services:

#2: Change Your Dental Hygiene Products

What are you using to clean your smile for your home dental care? Are you relying on a manual toothbrush? The type that has served you well for years? Do you like your toothpaste and have never really felt the need to change? Remember, simply use what you like and what works! There’s no need to try a new paste or an electric brush if what you use is already getting the job done (unless, of course, you want to!).
