Making Shoes Fun For Holidays

A fun part about the holiday season is dressing up your kids in beautiful attire so that you can get their pictures made or so that you can get a nice family picture made. While it's usually easy to find dresses, suits, pants, and sweaters for the holiday season, it can be a challenge to find kids holiday shoes. If you're like many parents, then you want to get something that's a bit dressier than tennis shoes, such as a pair of black shoes with a buckle on them. There are also a few fun ideas to consider if you want to add a little life to your pictures or if your child has a special event to attend over the holidays.
Making Shoes Fun For Holidays

White shoes are an option to consider that will match any outfit that your kids wear. Keep in mind that white does stand out more than black, so you want to keep the colors a bit on the lighter side with dresses and other outfits as well so that everything blends together. If you're looking for something elegant, then black shoes would be the best option. Boots are an idea to consider, especially if you're getting pictures made outside or if your children like to run around and play. Sometimes, the best pictures are those that you take when your kids are playing and being themselves.

A fun family picture idea would be for all the girls to wear leggings that are the same color and shirts that are the same color with boots while the boys wear jeans and shirts that are the same color as well along with boots. Add a little holiday flair to shoes for kids by putting jingle bells on them or a bow on the top of each shoe. You could also make the shoes colorful by putting wrapping paper on them, and idea to keep in mind if your kids are in a fun play at school.

What Aging Does To Your Smile And How To Fix it

We all know getting old can rob us of many things – our agility, our hair, and even our memories.

But aging also can cause physical changes to a person’s smile, which in turn can impact their sense of well being and influence their interactions with others.

“Many adults come to me complaining they have lost their smile,” says Dr. Stuart Frost, an orthodontist and author of The Artist Orthodontist: Creating An Artistic Smile is More Than Just Straightening Teeth (www.drstuartfrost.com).

“Older patients may have multiple issues that affect their smile, including mutilated or worn teeth, a misaligned bite, crowding, or problems with inflammation or recession of their gums. They may even have experienced the collapse of the underlying structures of the face due to missing teeth.“
What Aging Does To Your Smile  And How To Fix it

Frost says some of the specific situations older people face with their smiles include:

Wear and tear. Some adult teeth have unattractive chips and pits that take away from a smile. These issues can be addressed with hard-tissue contouring techniques that restore the anatomy of individual teeth. Hard-tissue contouring can also eliminate the need for expensive cosmetic veneers or bonding.

Gum recession. The phrase “looking long in the tooth” comes from the fact gums recede, causing the teeth to look longer and unsightly. There are a few reasons gum recession might happen, Frost says. For example, using a toothbrush with coarse bristles can cause gum problems. Also, food can get trapped between the gum tissue and develop into tartar. Over time, tartar turns into calculus, which Frost says “acts like acid on steroids” to cause inflammation of the gums. That can eventually irritate the bone and cause it to shrink away, a condition known as gingivitis. The good news is that gum tissue can be recontoured as part of the last steps in a treatment plan. Recontouring the teeth can eliminate the little dark triangle that appears in between the teeth and the gum when the gum recedes which can be fixed with recontouring the teeth.

Misalignments. Teeth that are crowded, flared or misaligned not only affect the look of your smile, they also can have an impact on your ability to chew and can even cause some people to clench and grind their teeth, Frost says. “By aligning the teeth with braces and ensuring each tooth is in the correct position, we can bring back the functionality and youthfulness of the bite,” he says.

Narrow arch. Narrowing of the arches is typically due to extractions earlier in life. Frost says there are ways to return a more youthful appearance by widening the arch shape to broaden the smile and creates better upper lip support. As a bonus, he says, a broader arch and smile promotes better contouring of the cheekbones, which can take years off someone’s appearance.
“The last 50 years have seen a revolution in dental techniques for improving your smile that many people have yet to discover,” Frost says. “Investigating and taking advantage of some of those options can change someone’s life, regardless of age.”
