Expert tips for a better smile
As we get ready for a new year, what dental hygiene tips and tricks should you include in your beauty regime for a smile like Kate Middleton’s?
Dr Khaled Kasem, Chief of Orthodontics at Impress, told Woman&Home, “The start of a new year sees many of us reflect on ourselves, listing our to-dos for the year to come. This research has proven that we’re all doing just that, with many of us after our own Hollywood smile.
“It’s important to remember though that dental health is much bigger than just aesthetics. TV stars such as Kim Kardashian have access to weekly dental treatments if they want them – this is out of reach for most people, and it’s important to not feel inferior if your smile doesn’t look like a celebrities. Regular brushing, flossing, plus some orthodontic and restorative care where necessary are the most important things to remember, plus smiling! Everyone looks better when they smile, celebrity or not, so be proud and look happy!”
