Your smile’s your prettiest feature. Why hide it? According to the comedian Phyllis Diller, “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” And we bet you couldn’t agree more. If you’re waking up to neglected teeth, then you know exactly what to do. You just have to get down to it.

Don’t hold back from seeing a dentist.
Don’t hold back from flashing your best self.
After all, the world needs more smiles! 🙂

Dental checkups — love ’em or hate ’em, you can’t ignore ’em. Besides making you look and feel confident, good oral health is a window to your overall health. DocDoc recently chatted up Dr Burlinson and Dr Daniel Chan to sponge up information about dental care that we deemed relevant to our lovely subscribers.

According to Dr Daniel Chan, placing braces on your teeth is the most fundamental cosmetic dental procedure, as having straighter teeth not only makes you look more confident but contributes to ease of dental maintenance. Watch his full interview below, where he also busts some popular dental myths and talks about overcoming halitosis (bad breath)!

According to Dr Graeme Burlinson, an important tip to remember is that it doesn’t really matter which brand of toothpaste you use as long as it’s got fluoride and is suitable for your age group.Watch his full interview below, where he also demonstrates the correct brushing technique and talks about his favourite celebrity smiles and top cosmetic procedures.

Did you know you could eat your way to better looking teeth? No, really!

You’re keeping up with the usual routine of brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist twice a year to keep your pearlies in good condition alright (you are,righht??), but did you know you could eat your way to better looking teeth?

According to Dr Burlinson, foods such as apple, celery, carrot and cheese help fend off plaque, periodontal disease and even gingivitis. So, the good ol’ ‘you are what you eat‘ adage holds good for your teeth and gums as well.
