Ultimately, beauty emanates from good health, and good health begins with proper nutrition.Be sure your diet includes a proper mix of fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and lean protein, and drink plenty of water daily.What you put into your body is reflected in your skin tone, nails, hair, tooth structure ,and in your overall sense of well-being.
Give your smile a healthy frame!
Over eating or under eating can change the shape of your face.This in turn can alter the proportion of your tooth size to your face, thereby affecting your smile.To keep your smile looking its best, maintain a healthy weight through exercise and a balanced diet.
Eating disorders are dangerous:
Too many times, emotional problems are reflected in our eating habits. Psychological stress or trauma can cause people to overeat or develop eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. These conditions not only wreak havoc on emotional and physical health but may also cause serious damage to your smile.
For example, bulimia can cause severe dental erosion, destroying the beauty of teeth. This erosion causes loss of enamel, resulting in the exposure of dentin(the darker layer underlying the enamel).If you have an eating disorder, no amount of cosmetic dentistry or plastic surgery will correct it. Seek professional help for the underlying problem.Gaining determination and confidence can have a tremendous impact on your self-image. You can then turn your attention to your appearance and do what it takes to keep your smile looking its best.
Use your smile!
Many people who've had corrective dental treatment forget that their smile looks better.For example, you've spent years hiding your mouth with your hand whenever you laughed or smiled because you were embarrassed by your teeth, it will probably take conscious effort to break yourself of the habit. When you complete your cosmetic dental treatment, practice smiling in front of a mirror. Repeat this until you get used to smiling again.
Then remember to smile often-it increases your face value!
