How to achieve a Healthy Smile

A Healthy Smile is the Secret To Attractiveness At Any Age!

It’s no secret that we only have one chance to make a lasting first impression. This can often shape how we are perceived and remembered in both our social and professionals lives. According to a new survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), nearly half of Americans agree that a healthy smile can be our greatest asset, no matter how old we are.

Our Smile is a feature that remains attractive even as we age and goes a long way in nailing an incredible first impression.

Perhaps this is why I consider my smile a worthwhile investment. And I made a pretty big investment to have these pearly whites and the smile I’ve always wanted.


Whether you like it or not, teeth play an important role in our lives. They tell a lot about our hygiene and they are the foundations of a healthy organism. For me, teeth are one of the first features I notice about others and overall.

My healthy smile is telling my story and it helps me conquer the world. A beautiful smile changes the way you interact with everyone you meet. Maintaining my teeth white is one of the most important things for me since I am shooting and posting pictures almost every day. But even more important is to have healthy teeth.

As a child, I didn’t smile a lot (at least not with my mouth open), I was hiding my crooked teeth, that’s why I know how important it is to be truly confident about your teeth. A pristine carefree smile is a smile without reservations that is only possible when you’re fully confident about your teeth. I fixed my crooked teeth after I wore braces for 3 years and I made a difficult implant surgery.  While fixing crooked teeth can be quite a struggle, having perfectly clean teeth is actually a piece of cake. How?

In October I was invited at Denttaglio Clinic opening and I met the nicest dentists, which made me understood all these things and pay more attention to my teeth. I started off with a tiny discussion around what I wanted with Klodian Hazizi. I told him: I want my teeth cleaned and I want them whitened. He asked me a few questions about my dental routine and I answered very truthfully (even though some were very bad answers). He was honestly so nice and kind, I thought I could tell him ANYTHING (but I didn’t because that would be creepy). He understood my dental habits and history.

My biggest concern when going to a doctor is judgment. Unfortunately, a few doctors I’ve met with always appear to be judging your life choices and with something as terrible as poor dental hygiene, you want someone to help you fix it and not be condescending about it. Dr. Klodian Hazizi is AMAZING. He’s so soft-spoken, very qualified, understanding, non-judgmental and takes you in wholeheartedly as a patient. And just like that, I was done. And I LOVED the result.


So…Why Visit The Dentist?

Keep your teeth and gums healthy. Smile with confidence.

The major reason to go the dentist is to keep your teeth in excellent condition. Your teeth are very important in chewing, speech, and self-image. Proper diet and adequate oral hygiene like regular brushing and flossing can help prevent most dental problems. For other dental issues, these may not be enough. A visit to the dentist will determine if a patient is at risk for dental caries (tooth decay or cavities) and other gum diseases.

How often should you visit the dentist?

Children and adults should go for check-ups at least twice a year. Those who are at greater risk for oral diseases (smokers, pregnant women, diabetics) may require more frequent dental check-ups.

What happens when you see the dentist?

Your first dental visit involves an overall physical examination of your teeth, gums and jaw and the tissues surrounding them. Teeth are cleaned and polished. They are checked for other potential problems. X-rays are taken to diagnose problems associated with the structures of the teeth and to reveal cavities that cannot be seen through visual examinations alone.

Prevent and Restore.

With the numerous advances in dentistry, one need not settle for discolored, missing or misshapen teeth. Dentists today offer many options that can help you maintain a bright smile, including professional tooth whitening and tooth implants and replacements.

At Denttaglio Clinic you will start your examination with a personalized Digital Smile Design depending on facial features.  The Digital Smile Design Technology simulates the outcome of aesthetic prosthetic restorations and patients can view their digital smile after the first session. This means that you can approve every modification your dentist proposes you to do.

I believe is one of the best things ever if you ask me. More details about this procedure in my next Video.


All in all, what I’m trying to say is that you should never postpone your annual dental appointments because you need a healthy smile to reflect your inner self.
