Achieve a Summer-Ready Smile

Book and keep your dental appointments. Avoid letting the business of summer disrupt your dental care. If you plan to travel, try to schedule your checkups or appointments before you leave. Regular cleanings help to prevent gum disease, maintain good health, keep your teeth healthy and strong, and to detect problems early.

Remember to brush after eating sweet treats. During the summer months, you may find yourself consuming more ice cream, soft drinks, sports drinks and other sugary foods and drinks. After you enjoy your treats be sure to brush your teeth and floss.

Stay hydrated! When the temperatures climb you may be tempted to consume sports drinks, lemonade or soft drinks, but you should replace those with water. Doing so isn’t only good for your dental health, but your overall wellbeing too. Summertime is a great season to commit to drinking more water each day.

Wear a mouthguard. Whether biking, playing football or engaging in other high-impact summer activities, it’s a good idea to wear a custom-fitted sports mouthguard. You don’t want a chipped or broken tooth to ruin your summer so better to be safe than sorry.

Protect your lips. Australia’s blazing hot sun can burn your lips. So, in addition to shielding your skin from the sun this summer, be sure to apply lip balm containing SPF.

Whiten your teeth. Brighten your pearly whites this summer with our Colgate at-home teeth whitening service which erases stubborn stains to give you a gleaming grin. Not only is our at-home whitening option much safer and less invasive when compared to other popular whitening methods (such as in-chair whitening, which essentially dries out the tooth enamel to achieve results), but it’s also highly effective, with patients seeing results in as little as 5-6 days.

Enhance your smile with veneers. If you have teeth that are chipped, broken, discoloured or uneven in size, you may want to consider veneers. They allow you to dramatically enhance your smile within as little time as possible. As summertime is filled with weddings, graduations and holiday plans, veneers can give you a beautiful smile for all your upcoming events.
