It’s a New Year, Why Not Resolve to Get a Better Smile? 

It’s a New Year, Why Not Resolve to Get a Better Smile?

It’s January, so naturally, fitness gyms are packed and diet plans are selling like low-calorie hotcakes. If you’ve ever set a New Year’s resolution and failed to keep it, then you know how tough it can be to make real lifestyle changes. Instead of making promises to yourself that you won’t keep in 2020, why not resolve, this year, to of course try to live healthier, stick with a solid dental care routine, and to finally get the smile you’ve always dreamed of?

The best part of setting a resolution to get the smile of your dreams is that you won’t have to do it alone! Dr. Paul Michels at Cardinal Dental in La Mesa will be there with you every step of the way.

How to Get Your Best Smile

Start with Your Health

Nutrition and good oral hygiene are the foundation of an attractive smile. A well-rounded diet comprised of whole foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, and nuts contain nutrients that actually help fight the bacteria in your mouth. It’s also important to make sure you get enough calcium in your diet to ensure the mineral structure of your teeth stays strong.

Eating healthier doesn’t just support your smile physically, it’ll also help you feel better and more energized, in general, which will surely put a genuine smile on your face.

In addition to a healthy diet, remember to brush and floss at least twice each day and be sure to schedule regular exams and cleanings with our dentist.

Schedule a Smile Consultation

When it comes to smiling, nothing should prevent you from feeling confident when you’re feeling happy, but common cosmetic concerns such as crooked, chipped, broken, gapped, missing, misshapen, or discolored teeth often do. If you have cosmetic concerns regarding your smile’s appearance that keep you from smiling freely, Dr. Michels can help you address and correct them.

Depending on your individual concerns, Dr. Michels will work with you to determine the best course of treatment, which might include:

  • Professional ZOOM Whitening Treatments
  • Clear Orthodontics
  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Dental Bonding
  • Dental Implants or Bridges
  • Amalgam Filling Replacement

At Cardinal Dental, we offer a comprehensive menu of both general and cosmetic dentistry services that can help you get the smile of your dreams, so that you can feel free to smile with confidence.
