Top tips to help enhance your smile in 2018:
Get on top of your daily routine
We all get busy, but correct daily brushing and flossing is a must to include in your daily routine.
Brushing twice-a-day and flossing daily keeps harmful bacteria and plaque at bay, freshens your breath, and brightens your smile — which is typically the first thing people notice about you.
Visit your dentist regularly
We can’t stress this one enough, making a regular trip to your dentist can reveal a number of oral disease issues and help combat oral concerns before they become a problem.
Be sure to make the trip every 6 months and allow the professionals, including your hygienist, to monitor the condition of your teeth and gums.

Drinking plenty of water does more than keep your mouth refreshed. It also washes away food particles and bacteria that are responsible for tooth erosion and cavities.
Swap acidic or sugary beverages (e.g., sports drinks, fizzy drinks, fruit juice) with water to minimise the amount of acids and sugar your teeth encounter. Water containing fluoride is ideal for optimal oral health.
Schedule a consultation for a smile make over
One of the first things you can do to kick start your year is schedule a consultation with a dentist to discuss your smile makeover options.
During your consultation, a DCP dentist will sit down and listen to your concerns and review your unique needs.
Based on your concerns, our dentist will design a customised treatment plan for your 2018 smile makeover.
Each smile makeover is uniquely tailored to the patient. While some dental treatments can be implemented and completed in one office visit, others may take multiple treatments spread out over the course of several months.
Your dentist will outline the treatment timeline and discuss all details with you during your consultation so that you know exactly what to expect.
Brighten and whiten your smile
For dull-looking teeth or mild to moderate extrinsic stains, professional teeth whitening can provide better results than over-the-counter products.
We offer both in-office whitening and take-home treatments, find out more information here.
More permanency with Porcelain Veneers
When stains are more severe or even permanent, or you have numerous cosmetic imperfections, you may benefit from porcelain veneers.
These thin, customised shells are bonded to the tooth’s front surface and can conceal cracks, chips, gaps, stains, and uneven teeth.
