It’s all about making the right first impression and believe it or not, people judge us within the first five seconds of actually meeting us. They decide right there and then if they like us or not, and so anything that can help them make the right first impression, should be embraced. It’s up to you to take steps to make sure, that when they see you for the first time, they like you immediately, and hopefully you can get the job that you have always wanted. There are a number of ways to do that and we will look at a couple of them here.
Create the right first impression.
You can, of course, do the normal things like dressing well, making sure that your hair is styled properly and of course, that you greet them with a smile. However, not all smiles are the same and some people fail to properly take care of their teeth. This results in an uneven smile and because they know that their smile isn’t the best that it can be, they, in turn, lack the confidence required. Thankfully, there is lots of help out there from our dentists, and there are also additional products that can help turn a regular smile into a winning smile.
The following are some of the tools available to you for a better smile, and you can generally find them in the dental isle at your local pharmacy, or you can also purchase them at McMahons Point Dental, with many that are very affordable and readily available.
- Oral irrigators – This is an oral hygiene tool, that is able to shoot a steady, strong jet of water into your mouth to help remove food that is caught in between your teeth, and in hard to reach places, that your toothbrush cannot reach. This device is especially good for people who have braces in their mouth that are there to straighten teeth and give them their fantastic smile. This does not replace your toothbrush and they need to be used together to get the best results.
- Specialist toothbrushes – Not all toothbrushes are the same, and not everyone’s teeth and gums are the same. We all need a specific toothbrush to cater for the gums and teeth that we have. You can buy specific toothbrushes that have hard, medium and soft bristles to keep your mouth in tip top condition. Some toothbrushes have tongue scrapers on the back of the toothbrush to help keep your breath fresh.
- Specialist toothpaste – Again, not all toothpastes are the same. Some of them contain active ingredients to fight things such as gingivitis, really bad breath, and particularly hard plaque that standard toothpaste just doesn’t remove. If you are unsure about what kind of toothpaste is best for your teeth, then get the advice of your local dentist.
The above are just some of the many devices that you can use to help create that winning smile. Of course, your dentist can also offer you some teeth cleaning, and teeth whitening should you want it.
