Smile Makeover Goals for Next Year

The end of each year brings time to reflect over the good things that happened and events that we would do differently.  It’s a time to dream and make goals to reach that dream, to change, to refine, to resolve. Have you included your dental health and appearance in those goals?

A More Beautiful Smile in a Short Time


Resolving to make your smiling teeth more beautiful? There are two ways to go: Cosmetic or Orthodontic. Cosmetic treatments are often the quickest ways to a gorgeous smile. Veneers can cover bad teeth. Just whitening is a great way to make your smile stand out! Orthodontia corrects individual teeth and bite alignment. Dr. Jamsheed offers Invisalign as a fast and convenient approach to most alignment issues.

Better Dental Health


Sometimes, the best goals are to take small steps to improve your habits. If you don’t take great care of your teeth, this is the best time to start. These are your goals for the best dental health:


  1. Brush Two For Two! Up your brushing game. If you only brush once a day, add an additional time. If you’re already brushing twice daily, increase the time you brush to two minutes each time.
  2. Do The Floss! Not everyone is able to use regular floss easily. Get a package of pre-strung floss picks to get between your teeth. Swipe the string over both tooth surfaces, front and back. Aim to do this every day.
  3. Rinse and Repeat. If you’re brushing and flossing the way you should, add a rinse before you go to bed. Rinsing with an alcohol free, anti-microbial mouthwash will give your mouth a break from bacteria while you sleep.
  4. Schedule Your Cleanings. Call Encino Dental Studio to make your six-month appointments to keep your teeth and gums healthy!
