Smile Makeover in Hollywood

We admire Hollywood stars for their flawless smiles and we even use the term “Hollywood smile” when comparing to perfection. Well, guess what? More than 90% of the Hollywood smiles are actually masterpieces of talented dentists like the experts from Avenue Dental Care. Here are some of the best examples:



The benefits of flossing

Maintaining a good oral hygiene is crucial. This can only be done by practicing constant oral cleaning, meaning you have to brush your teeth every day. But this is not all that you should do to have healthy teeth and gums. Flossing and using mouthwash are two dental routines that you should practice daily alongside brushing. In this article, you will learn about the importance and benefits of flossing. Continue reading


The enamel – the silent protector of your teeth

What is the enamel?

The enamel is a thin outer coating that can be found on the visible part of your teeth. This thin shell is the toughest tissue in the human body, and it covers what is known as the crown of the teeth. The enamel is translucent, and you can lightly see the dentin through it. The enamel is white, but the dentin is yellowish. In time, if the enamel becomes too thin, your teeth will change their color into an unwanted yellow. Coffee, cola, red wine, tea, and fruit juices can also stain the enamel, changing the color of your teeth. By visiting your dentist regularly for routine cleaning, you can remove the surface stains and improve the color of your enamel. Continue reading

What are dental implants and how can they help you?

Dentistry has improved drastically over the last decades, but despite all this, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss each year as a result of gum disease, injuries, and tooth decay. A long time ago, the only option for missing teeth were the dentures and bridges, but today, more and more people are choosing to undergo a dental implant procedure. Continue reading

The causes and treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)

The temporomandibular joint is a structure that connects the temporal bone of your skull and the jaw. There are two of them, on each side of your face, in front of the ear. This “hinge” allows you to move your jaw side to side and up and down, enabling you to chew, yawn, talk and open your mouth.  Any problems with your jaw and the face muscles that are responsible for the jaw movement are known as temporomandibular disorders. In many cases, these problems are referred to as TMJ, but this is the name of the joint and not the disorder. Continue reading

When Should You Avoid Tooth Whitening?

Tooth whitening helps lighten the color of your teeth and removes stains and discoloration. The whitening procedure is one of the most popular dental cosmetic procedure because it improves the way your teeth look. It is a procedure that can be done in most dental offices. In addition to this, tooth whitening is not a one-time process, but it can be repeated from time to time (with your dentist’s approval). Continue reading

What does it mean if your child is grinding their teeth?

Teeth grinding is a condition known as bruxism, which is pretty common among children under age 11. In fact, it is so common that most doctors consider it a normal behavior. But this “normal” condition can seriously affect the teeth of your child, causing severe tooth pain, wear, and trouble sleeping (depending on the severity of the bruxism). Even if bruxism can damage the teeth, because healthcare professionals do not fully understand bruxism, they do not agree on how to treat it. The most common factor that generates bruxism appears to be psychological stress. Continue reading

When you are in need of emergency dental services

The injuries to the mouth are extremely serious. This type of injuries can include knocked out, forced out of their normal position, or fractured teeth. Furthermore, it is possible that when you injured your teeth, you also injured your gums, lips, and cheeks. Oral injuries hurt a lot and should be treated as soon as possible by a dental specialist.

The brighter the smile, the better the job

People still don’t understand the power of a bright, dashing smile. You don’t have to be a GQ model or the king or queen of the prom to be successful. Anybody that has a good smile will have an excellent life. The sincere smile will lower the tension in a room, while the attractiveness will make you more likable. This is the reason why your smile is such a powerful tool that you need to take advantage of when you are job-hunting.

The smile is science

The smile is considered a universal characteristic of happiness. Regardless of your country, culture, ethnicity, gender, or generation, you will always smile when you are happy. Even if you meet someone you do not know, a simple smile can ease the conversation and disarm the person in front of you. Your smile is the best tool to set the foundation for a trustful relationship.avenue dental 2

By smiling, you subconsciously interact with other human beings. You can either smile to gain attention or to deflect it. People smile even when they are proud or embarrassed, and when they are happy or sad. Even babies smile and can recognize when you smile at them. There is a large variety of smiles and understanding about each will help you greatly.

Smiling at the interview

During your interview for your future job, if you provide the interviewer a genuine smile, you have high chances of getting the job. A dashing, bright, sincere smile will give you the edge needed to compete with people that have more experience and better credentials. Subconsciously, your smile is worth more than all others (if the smile is genuine).

An employer will not only look for someone who can complete their tasks, but they also search for someone who can work with all the other coworkers. Of course, you have to do a little research before applying for a position, and once you find one you are comfortable with, you can go there presenting the biggest and brightest smile.

How to obtain a perfect smile

If you want to have a perfect smile you have two things to follow: Maintain a good oral hygiene and go to the dentist regularly. Maintaining a good oral hygiene is easier than you may think. You just have to brush your teeth and tongue twice a day, floss daily and rinse using mouthwash. By following this simple oral care routine, you will maintain the brightness of your smile and keep away all dental problems, such as cavities, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and tooth loss.

Another thing you should do is to go to the dentist at least once each year. Even if you maintain a good oral hygiene, sometimes, as a result of poor diet or stress, your teeth could suffer some problems, such as staining or small cavities. The dentist will resolve these dental problems without effort and without you having to feel something. If you have any dental problems, you should treat them as soon as possible, or it might get worse.

Smile bright and good luck on finding your dream job.
