Some Surprising Winter Smile Tips!

The weather has dipped and it’s time for some winter tips for your smile health! Wondering what they could be? Today, we offer some less obvious, slightly more surprising suggestions that will help you maintain a lovely and healthy grin throughout these colder days of the year.

Tip: See Us For Cosmetic Care Now

You might think of cosmetic treatments as something that you save for warmer weather. There are spring and summer weddings, vacations, and more that will certainly include photos. However, it’s often a good idea to get started now. Whether because a winter wedding may sneak up on you or because you will avoid a last minute rush in the warmer months to get your smile looking lovelier.

Tip: Don’t Forget About Dryness

There are a lot of reasons that you may start experiencing drier skin and drier oral tissues! Think about the way the colder months can affect your smile health. If you experience congestion, you mouth breath. Your home’s central heat is drying. You may not be guzzling water like you did during the summer. Focus on maintaining a moist mouth and treating issues that cause dryness to keep your oral health safe.

Tip: Protect Your Pucker

We’ve encouraged you to use lip balm before and we are more than happy to suggest it again! Whether you’re going to be in the sun (and need lip balm with SPF) or you’re indoors but the dryness abounds, rely on balm throughout the day. You’ll be so happy with the results of this simple smile health tip.
