Your Smile Can Impact How Much People Trust You
Posted on 12/20/2018 by Kooning Family Dentistry
A smile says a lot about you and how you take care of yourself. Have you ever noticed how confident people who have perfect white teeth are? Anyone who isn't comfortable with the way their teeth look to others will become self-conscious and avoid smiling and even interacting with others in social situations. One of the most interesting findings in a recent survey was that an open smile could make people trust you more, so if you're hiding behind your hand or napkin, you could be losing others' trust. The Importance of a Genuine SmileYour smile is probably one of the first things a new acquaintance notices about you, along with your eyes. Looking at someone and smiling with confidence makes people instantly like and trust you, especially when that smile reaches your eyes. White, perfect teeth convey youthfulness and good health, while a less attractive smile will make others think you have poor oral hygiene habits and lack education. It's the harsh reality of perception today. It is important to mention that people with less than perfect teeth, can still have good oral health. Discolored teeth happen for many reasons, including age, genetics, other underlying health conditions, wear and tear, and things in your diet or habits, such as drinking coffee, tea, wine, or smoking. How We Can Help We offer in-house whitening treatments in which we control the amount of solution that your teeth need carefully to prevent issues with sensitivity or damaging the enamel. We can also discuss cosmetic options that are relatively quick and less expensive than teeth replacement, such as dental bonding to fix minor imperfections like gaps, chips or uneven smiles. There is help available in our office if you decide you want to improve your smile and the way in which others perceive you....

Your Oral Health Improves When You Eat Lots of Vegetables
Posted on 12/10/2018 by Kooning Family Dentistry
Delicious, nutritious, and healthful. Vegetables are an important part of any balanced diet, but did you know that they are also great for keeping your mouth in excellent shape? The Fight Against CancerLeading off the list, vegetables have been linked to oral cancers – particularly, statistics show that the lack of vegetables in one's diet increases their risk. While quitting smoking and other tobacco products remains the most vital step to reduce those risks, it doesn't hurt to throw in a few leafy greens to bolster your chances. Nature's ToothbrushIt is important to brush twice a day, but when you are snacking and don't have a toothbrush handy, reach for the vegetable tray. Crisp vegetables, like raw carrots and celery, help clean your teeth and abrade away plaque buildup, allowing you to feel less guilt about midday munching. As a bonus, finish off the meal with a little mint, ginger, or parsley to naturally rinse, leading to a cleaner mouth and fresh, tingly breath. Vitamins Vital for Your GrinIf a healthier, cleaner mouth with a reduced risk of oral cancer wasn't enough, you can also reduce your risks of acid reflux. Less acid in your mouth is a good thing! Furthermore, most green vegetables contain important vitamins (B, C, and K) and minerals (such as potassium, calcium, and iron) that help reduce the risk of and even fight back against gum disease, persistent halitosis, and cavities. Vegetables are great for your smile, but that's not the only way to keep your mouth fresh and healthy. Please contact us today to learn more great tips and advice on natural remedies to common tooth-born illnesses and preventable problems that might arise due to your diet and learn what you can improve to keep your best tooth forward....

How Computers and Video Games Cam Damage Your Teeth
Posted on 11/25/2018 by Kooning Family Dentistry
Computer and video games are a major pastime for many people. Unfortunately, this sometimes comes at the expense of the oral health. These are some of the ways that your computer and video game usage might be affecting your teeth. Poor Food ChoicesIf you spend hours in front of the computer or TV screen each day, you will likely have less time to prepare healthy, nutritious meals. This may have you grabbing foods that are less than ideal for your teeth. Foods that are high in sugar or simple carbohydrates are common selections, and you may not get the necessary allotment of fruits and vegetables. This gives your mouth plenty of time to create harmful acids that can destroy the enamel and attack your gums. Neglecting Your Oral HealthWhen your life becomes consumed by computers, video games, and other technology, there is a chance that your oral health and other personal hygiene activities will take a back seat in your life. This isn't strictly an issue when it comes to technology – any time that an activity becomes all-consuming, your oral health may be in jeopardy. If you choose to play video or computer games, make sure you are spending the necessary time on caring for your mouth. Chewing on Non-Food ItemsConsider all of the items around your desk – pens, pencils, highlighters, and other office supplies. For people living with an oral fixation, it may be tempting to chew on one of these items while your mind is occupied on your game. You might not even notice that you're doing it, but damage can occur to your teeth. With time, small fractures may develop on the teeth, and they will progress until you break a tooth or filling. To keep your teeth healthy if you use the computer and video games frequently, oral hygiene needs to be a priority. Give our office a call today to set up your next appointment....
