As 2020 draws to a close (thanks goodness!), many of us like to consider the things we can do to improve our health and wellbeing in the year ahead, AKA New Year’s Resolutions. It’s never too late to make changes to improve the health of your smile – take a look at some of our advice for getting yourself on the path to a better smile in 2021. 
Straighten your smile 
Misaligned, crowded and widely spaced teeth not only affect your desire to smile, but your gum and dental health too. When your teeth are poorly aligned, it can become challenging to brush correctly and it becomes easy for food to become stuck in your teeth, causing tenacious surface staining. Treatments such as Invisalign allow patients a great degree of flexibility, making them a popular choice of orthodontic appliance. 
Brighten your smile 
As you age, your smile will sustain some degree of discolouration, but lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking tea, coffee and red wine and consuming sugar snacks often will accelerate this. Teeth whitening treatment is a great way of giving your smile a new lease of life and starting afresh, including better brushing and flossing habits into your routine. Treatment is tailored to you, so you can choose how many shades whiter you would like your smile to be. A whiter and brighter smile has been proven to improve career prospects and relationships with colleagues, friends and significant others. 
Ditch the cigarettes 
If you’re looking to change just one thing to improve your oral and dental health in 2021, make it this. Smoking causes havoc with many different aspects of your smile, bringing on bad breath, a dry mouth, gum disease and tooth discolouration. If you’re struggling to quit, we can point you in the direction of the right support – you don’t have to go it alone! 
Replace that missing tooth 
If you’ve been living without a tooth or multiple teeth, make 2021 the year you address this. Missing teeth can bring about complications the longer they are left untreated, including jawbone loss and the need for orthodontic treatment and speech problems. Here at Park Dental Care we recommend dental implant treatments, as this is a permanent and fixed answer to tooth loss that rejuvenates your smile to 100%.
