Brushing Teeth to Boost Your Confidence

Clarissa Harper

Brushing teeth is a regular part of everyone's morning and nighttime routine, and has become almost second nature. As mundane a task as this is, it's actually a great investment in yourself, not only for your oral health, but also for your confidence level. When you feel good about yourself your confidence will shine through in any situation. Here are a couple of ways brushing your teeth can lead to a more confident you.

Brushing AwayLeaving a Lasting Impression With Your Smile

One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. It is one thing we are all self-conscious about, but when you feel good about your smile you will automatically have more confidence in yourself. So you should definitely make your smile work for you by making brushing teeth a regular part of your day. In order to keep your smile at its best, you first need to start with your toothbrush. You can only brush your teeth as well as the toothbrush you are using to brush them with. Learn more about toothbrush care in the Colgate Oral Care resources.

Having a Great Conversation Starts with Fresh Breath

There's nothing more embarrassing than offending the person you are talking to with your not-so-pleasant breath. When you have bad breath, not only are you embarrassed, but you are also less likely to speak up when that perfect opportunity comes for you to share some insightful thought with your friends or colleagues.

There are many things you can do to effectively treat bad breath. Along with brushing your teeth each night, brushing your tongue can help kill a lot of the bacteria that causes bad breath in the first place. Using Colgate Max Fresh toothpaste with germ fighting strips would be the perfect toothpaste to use and will leave your mouth feeling cool and fresh. Learn more about treating bad breath in the Colgate Oral Care resources.

Having a good dental care routine will lead to big changes in your oral health and help boost your confidence. With a great smile and clean fresh breath, you'll be ready to take on the world.
