It’s World Smile Day!

Harvey Ball, the creator of the “smiley face,” thought that everyone should focus on being kind to one another and sharing a smile for at least one day a year. From Harvey Ball’s beliefs, World Smile Day® was born. Once a year on the first Friday of October, people perform acts of kindness in hopes someone will share a smile with them on World Smile Day®. At Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs, GA, Dr. Brenda Paulen works closely with each patient to help them maintain a functional, healthy smile. World Smile Day should be about being kind to one another, not about worrying about the look of your smile. Dr. Paulen can work with you to improve the aesthetic and function of your smile. Dr. Paulen offers a range of cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services in her Atlanta, GA dental office.

Tips For Improving Your Smile

  1. Practice an excellent oral hygiene routine. Most dentists would agree that preventive care starts at home. Brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day can minimize the chance of you developing complex dental problems like tooth decay, tooth loss, and gum disease. Taking care of your smile is a partnership between dentist and patient.
  2. Visit Proud Smiles twice a year for a routine dental exam. During your visit, Dr. Paulen will examine your, mouth, teeth, and gums to check for any signs of complex dental problems. If a complex dental problem has developed, Dr. Paulen is well equipped to offer you the comprehensive dental treatment you need.
  3. Stay away from foods and beverages that can harm your enamel. Acidic foods and beverages can harm your enamel. Drinks like coffee, wine, and sodas can stain your enamel over time. Only an experienced dentist like Dr. Paulen will be able to improve the aesthetic of your teeth. It’s important to take care of your enamel because you only get one. Once your enamel has been damaged, it can not be restored.
