Dr. Austin Offers Celebrity Dental Tips
By Souleo. What is the best accessory when it comes to complementing your head-to-toe Dereon, Coogi and Polo look? According to celebrity dentist, Dr. Catrise Austin it's a healthy and brilliant smile. Dr. Austin has perfected the smiles of Hollywood stars such as Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott, Toni Braxton and hip-hop icon, Slick Rick. In her new book, 5 Steps to the Hollywood A-List Smile: How the Stars Get That Perfect Smile and How you Can Too she covers everything from the pros and cons of the latest dental procedures, how to find free or low-cost dental care and the urban cosmetic dentistry trends you might want to stay away from such as grills.
"You can't look good with messed up teeth and grills have done a lot of damage. 10 years ago with Slick Rick I took out the gold. It was very pleasurable for me because it changed the health of his teeth. I've also had some people request diamonds right in their teeth. It's not unhealthy so long as it's removable. But it's best to go natural and avoid artificial things," she said.
Dr. Austin's tips for attaining and maintaining a natural smile is through four simple proven steps: brushing, flossing, rinsing with mouthwash and tongue scraping.
"You should brush 3 times a day after every meal to remove the sugars from your teeth. Some people think flossing is a pain in the butt but you can use the thin strips and it gets rid of bacteria. Rinsing with alcohol free brands helps to rinse away hidden bacteria. A tongue scraper with ridges on it will lift bacteria from the crevices of the tongue even better. There is a line of products called BreathRx which has everything you need."
For those constantly on-the-run and wanting to whiten their teeth, Dr. Austin recommends, Crest White Strips or her latest procedure, the Snap-On Smile.
"You can instantly change the look of your teeth without altering them with the Snap-On Smile. It is like the grills of cosmetic dentistry. There are no needles since we make a molding of your teeth that you flip over your teeth. It's a cheap and affordable way to change your smile that will go great with your outfit."
