2019’s top dental trends to know about
While the dental world may not be the first thing that springs to mind when one thinks of the word ‘trendy’, it is actually one of the fastest evolving segments of beauty. With new technology being developed in every aspect from straightening to whitening, it’s no wonder people can barely keep up. We’ve pulled together the latest in dental trends for 2019, to help you wrap your head around what’s available and what’s right for you when it comes to keeping your pearly whites in their best shape ever.
With a move towards environmentalism and sustainability on every front, it’s really not surprising the dental world has followed suit. In an effort to reduce plastic, everything from bamboo toothbrushes (bh loves: Bodecare Bamboo Toothbrush) to environmentally friendly and biodegradable dental floss, such as Woobamboo Eco-Awesome Floss ($11.53, find it at iherb.com) is now available.
Not super new in the scheme of dental trends - charcoal has proven that it’s well and truly sticking around. While it may seem counterproductive that a black carbon formula works to whiten teeth, it works to attract and absorb unwanted food, grime and stains for your cleanest teeth ever. Bh loves: Pearl Drops Instant Natural White.
And if charcoal isn’t quite your jam, toothpastes such as Colgate Optic White Enamel White Whitening Toothpaste feel just like your regular toothpaste but work to whiten your teeth up to three shades after only four weeks.
People are busier than ever, and it an effort to make prioritizing your dental health as easy as possible, brands like Oral-B and EZ Smile are now offering smart, at-home solutions to your dental problems. With Oral-B’s innovative electric toothbrush and smart phone app, you are now able to access information regarding your brushing style that will ensure you never miss a zone ever again. Plus, the app even offers reminders just in case you need that little extra help remembering to brush on a Saturday night. Similarly EZ Smile Whitening Pen has made whitening more accessible and affordable than ever, boasting three to eight shades whiter with six applications of only 20 minutes. We’ll take that as a win!
If you’d have told me in high-school that my mouth full of braces would seem completely unnecessary in 2019, and was to be subbed out by innovative new (and clear) straightening technology, I wouldn’t have believed you. With practically invisible aligner systems such as Invisalign and EZ Smile Clear Aligners, straightening your teeth is less painful and easier to fit into everyday life than ever.
Invisalign® treatment is a series of clear plastic removable orthodontic aligners that gently move patients’ teeth. An orthodontist or Invisalign trained dentist will be able to advise whether Invisalign treatment is right for you. You should always read and follow their directions for use. In rare cases, allergies may occur.
