This Valentine’s Day, why not do something nice for your smile? After all, your oral health reflects and influences your overall wellness, so it’s important to prioritize your teeth and gums!

At A Perfect Smile, we offer a wide variety of services — from routine checkups to professional teeth whitening that brightens your smile in just an hour — that will allow you to spoil your smile. The little things you do for your gums and teeth this Feb. 14 will give you a boost of confidence that lasts the whole year!

1. Get A Brilliantly White Smile — Fast.


Our in-office teeth whitening treatments aren’t magic, but they’re close. With the help of Zoom whitening products, you can realize a smile that’s up to eight shades whiter in just an hour!

Removing years of stains from your teeth is one of the most cost-effective ways to enhance your appearance, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. And the treatments that we offer are safer and more effective than over-the-counter gels and strips.

If you’d rather whiten your teeth in the privacy of your own home, A Perfect Smile also offers custom at-home whitening treatments that you can wear during the day or at night! These options are great, regardless of how busy your schedule is.


2. Commit To Routine Checkups And Cleanings.


Going to the dentist every six months can help prevent dental health complications like tooth decay and gum disease. But these regular appointments have an added cosmetic benefit: Removing six months’ worth of plaque and tartar — forms of bacterial buildup — from your teeth will leave your smile looking shinier and feeling smoother!

At A Perfect Smile, we use state-of-the-art technology. Our laser cavity detection can identify the earliest signs of tooth decay so we can intervene appropriately, and our ultrasonic dental cleaning devices allow us to thoroughly clean your teeth without any uncomfortable sounds.


3. Treat Yourself To A Smile Makeover.


Maybe 2018 is your designated “Year of Self-Care.” And if you’re wanting to completely overhaul the appearance and health of your smile, A Perfect Smile is here to help with a smile makeover. No matter what bothers you about your teeth and gums, our caring and knowledgeable staff will listen closely to your smile goals and help you formulate a personalized treatment plan.

Some of the cosmetic dentistry services you can incorporate into your smile makeover include:

  • Dental veneers: These thin shells of composite material are bonded to your teeth to conceal imperfections.
  • Teeth whitening: Remove years of stains to reveal a younger looking smile.
  • Gum treatments: Whether you’re unhappy with your “gummy smile” or dislike your uneven gumline, we can comfortably adjust your gums with a dental laser.
  • Dental bonding: Address small smile flaws for a more beautiful smile.

We can even provide a preview of your new smile before any work begins so you’ll know what to expect.


4. Floss Once A Day.


Here’s something you can do that will only cost you the price of dental floss. Roughly one in five Americans never floss their teeth! Flossing is important because it removes food particles that get stuck between your teeth and along your gumline. Left to linger, this debris attracts bacteria and contributes to bad breath and gum disease.

It only takes a few minutes each day to floss your teeth and lower your risk of gum disease! If you suspect you already have gingivitis — which is marked by red, swollen, and tender gums — then it’s time to see the dentist.

At A Perfect Smile, we offer non-surgical gum disease treatment that can restore the health of your gums. Our first line of defense uses ultrasonic cleaners, a quiet and comfortable way to clean the gums. We might also recommend a deep cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing paired with an antibiotic treatment to stop the infection.


5. Find A Dentist You Love!


Your dentist should be someone you trust, someone who makes you feel comfortable, and someone you enjoy seeing! If you’re looking for a dental “home” in Falmouth, ME, check out A Perfect Smile.
